Timber treasures: Lowburn Sawmill
Sometimes you see a product and you just want it. Actually, make that need it. Attractive, useful, practical, economical, versatile, and the cosy and sustainable embrace of timber.
That’s the way it is with the gorgeous cabins designed and built by Loburn Sawmill. They can be a guest room, a self-contained flat, a workshop, a studio, an office, or any type of shed you could possibly need, wherever you need it to be. You might be dreaming of a holiday pad but building costs are too much.
“Our range of cabins have been so successful,” says Jess Marketing Manager at Loburn Sawmill, “they’ve sold like hot cakes and clients told us they wanted them even bigger and with bathroom facilities.” To meet demand the team have designed two larger sized cabins. Now added to the original range are the 4.2m x 2.6m, and the 5.8m x 2.6m cabins. The new ensuite option comes with a vanity, shower, toilet, and a cavity slider to keep it all private.
Sustainably sourced New Zealand larch clads each cabin making it a sleek addition to an urban setting, or a perfect blend with a countryside or bush setting. The cabins are really strong, and also really portable.
A look at the team’s website shows just how versatile the cabins are. One or more cabins can site together. Arrange with decking to connect the cabins, and you have an almost instant, very attractive, and cost-effective bach set up. They make decking choices too. In small, medium, and large, they add to the versatility of the cabin range. You can link them up in configurations that suit you or your site.
The highly regarded and preferred Douglas Fir timber is used in framing the cabins. Ship-lap weatherboards are joined by black Colour Steel 5 rib roof iron and double-glazed black aluminium joinery in the window and sliding door. Wool insulation in the walls and ceiling assists with energy efficiency, and the floor is self-insulated 45mm T&G. The interior walls are clad in solid timber T.G&V wall panelling and fitted with two double power points and two internal LED lights. Outside you will find two external LED lights and a caravan plug.
“Come and see our cabins,” says Jess, “the design is excellent, they are made with quality materials with a low carbon footprint, and are packed with character and good looks too.”
