Additional windows can be installed during or after a build. Remove the facia on one side and cut a hole into the right part of the cabin.
As mentioned above, the additional window can be added in at any point during the build. However, it is a good idea to cut the spacing for the window once the cabin has been installed as all the logs will then be in the positions they need to be in.
Please see the links below for the additional windows that we offer:
The spacing for any additional windows will not come cut into the logs like they are with the standard windows. Therefore, the spacing for the window will need to be cut into the cabin when this is there with you.
When cutting the spacing for the additional window you will need to ensure the gap also allows for the movement of the timber. Please see the below for the recommended allowance to leave for the movement, depending on the time of year:
- Height of Summer: The wood will be at its smallest as a lot of moisture will have escaped. Therefore only a small gap of 10 – 15mm maybe necessary as the building is only likely to expand more as Autumn and Winter arrive.
- Depths of Winter: The wood will be at its largest size as it will have absorbed a lot of moisture from the surrounding air. Therefore a gap of 20 – 30mm maybe necessary as the building is only likely to contract as the Spring and Summer arrive.
- As the logs expand marginally length ways you only really need a gap of around 5 – 10mm either side, again depending on the time of year you are installing.
With the additional windows, these will come with a spacer. You will need to use to ensure the window is cut to the correct size needed for the log thickness on your building, as shown below. Once this has been done, these are then added to your window.
