I have lots of experience across virtually every supplier and manufacturer of log cabins having been involved in the industry for nearly twenty years. I write a blog here: https://www.tuin.co.uk/blog/ where I try to offer lots of tips and advice. I have been working with Tuin since it started on 2005 and can offer a lot of help and advice if you need it.
