Designed with you in mind
The Alpine Workshop has been upgraded with extra-high doors to make getting into the building easier. The eaves height (the lowest point of the roof) has also been raised, giving you a greater average ceiling height.
Spacious and bright: With a generous height of 6'2", the workshop’s door opening accommodates the majority of adults, so you won't be bumping your head every time you enter. The accompanying side windows provide the workshop with plenty of sunlight during the day.
Faster and easier: The Alpine Workshop has an overall building height of just below 2.5 metres, giving it a greater chance of avoiding issues with current planning regulations. Nevertheless, we still strongly advise contacting your local area's council for information on this, as different council boroughs can vary.
Customise to suit your needs
The Alpine Workshop lets you customise several important aspects of the construction, so you can get the exact building you want. The log cabin can be assembled in several different configurations, letting you place the doors and windows in the optimal position for your garden layout. We also give you the choice of building size, floor timber thickness, window style, glazing style and roof covering to create the perfect garden building for your requirements.
If you have all-year-round use in mind, we recommend the premium 19mm floor for strength and durability, double-glazed Modern style windows for insulation from the cold, and premium roof shingles to give the building long-lasting, effective weatherproofing. For a standard summer house only for use during the spring and summer months, single-glazed doors and windows will be sufficient, combined with the Traditional style to give a classic appearance. Then complete the building with roof shingles and premium paint for a great style that's personalised to your tastes.
The perfect workshop
Every aspect of the Alpine Workshop’s construction has been specially designed to create the ultimate workspace. The doors are solid wood as opposed to windowed, to make the building more private and secluded than a typical log cabin, as well as increasing strength and security. This means you can store your high-value tools and belongings in confidence.
The workshop is ultra-durable, particularly the more premium cladding, letting it withstand everything it’s subjected to; be it the weather outside or you inside! The double doors are strong and large, so you can access the building with ease – even whilst you're carrying your power tools or DIY projects in and out and with a great selection of building sizes you can get all of the space you need for the hobbies you love.
If you want to be productive in the most beautiful space you have available, you owe it to yourself to add an Alpine Log Cabin Workshop to your garden.
Solid, interlocking timber construction
The Alpine Workshop is constructed with interlocking timbers, a traditional building method that gives additional strength to all of the boards. Compared to the technique used for basic panel buildings, this is a far superior method that firmly fixes the timbers in place, using their combined weight to make the structure rock solid.
19mm tongue and groove timber is used for the four walls of the building. This is an entry-level log cabin cladding that makes the Alpine Workshop extremely cost-effective whilst still giving adequate insulation and durability. It's much thicker than the average garden shed, giving a sturdy construction so you'll enjoy the building for many years to come.
28mm tongue and groove timber is used for the walls of the building, a standard log cabin cladding that gives the workshop reasonable durability and insulation whilst still remaining affordable. With walls that are much thicker than the typical garden shed, it has a sturdy construction to give you peace of mind and longevity.
Pressure Treatment Options
For a completely protected building, you can also opt for a pressure treated building which is an effective way of keeping the building completely protected from the elements. The pressure treatment penetrates the wood leaving you with a building that is low maintenance and doesn’t need treating at home. This option is great for anyone who is looking for a building that is not going to take any effort to look after.
Pick your window style
We give you the choice of two stunning building designs, letting you get the window styling that's right for you. Both single-glazing and double-glazing options are available in either style, so you can choose the level of insulation you need for your building. And with either style you'll also enjoy the unique feature of the Alpine Workshop 's front overhang, for an appearance that's full of character.
Traditional Style (Georgian bars) – Premium and Standard options: The Traditional Style Alpine Workshop features Georgian beams on the windows, giving the building a classic British feel. Choose Standard for single-glazed windows if you just have a seasonal summer house in mind, or upgrade to double-glazing to help keep you warm all through the year.
Modern Style – Premium and Standard options: If you'd prefer a more contemporary design for your building, then the Modern Style is for you. This offers a clean, minimalistic feel without Georgian bars. Once again, you'll also have the choice of Standard or Premium glazed windows to suit the intended use of your log cabin.
Solid under foot
The heavy-duty Premium floor option is ideal if you have an everyday building in mind, such as a home office for example. Alternatively, Standard is an adequate choice if you just need seasonal domestic use.
Premium – heavy-duty floor: A Premium floor is the perfect choice for high-intensity usage. This heavy-duty option will ensure that your building can withstand demanding activities and store your heavy belongings. The construction uses thick 19mm tongue and groove timber, which also gives you insulation against the cold weather, making the workshop easier and cheaper to heat during Autumn and Winter.
Standard – regular floor: We offer the Standard floor option for less demanding and frequent usage, suitable for lighter intensity purposes like basic storage and other occasional uses. 11mm tongue and groove timber makes this is a suitable economic option.
Basic – your bespoke DIY floor: If you're a DIY expert with specific requirements, we offer you the Basic option. The building will be supplied with the bearers only, letting you build the base completely from scratch to your liking.
Protect the roof
Due to its position on the building, the roof is the part of the building that's most exposed and vulnerable to the weather, so it needs good protection. Choose one of our great roof weather protection options to make the workshop water-tight and keep it in great condition from day one.
Premium weather protection: For the very best weathering capability available, fit workshop with Premium heavy-duty shingles, available in a selection of green, red or black.

Our roofing shingles are UV resistant, water-proof, carry an SAA fire rating and are very long-lasting.
Standard weather protection: The Standard weather protection option offers mineral felt, of which is used for our premium garden sheds. This is quickly and easily applied to the roof, giving your log cabin a basic level of defence against the elements.
