Arrival of the Half Way House Log Cabin at Gleneagles 9th Hole
After all the cheering on the final day of the Solheim Cup had come to an end on the 15 September 2019 with Europe winning after an epic finish, and the crowds departed and return in 2020, someone else was waiting patiently in the wings to achieve another challenge. It was of course us here at Log Cabins Scotland (LCS), bespoke Log Cabin builders and providers of custom built garden rooms and pavilions.
Building a Bespoke Log Cabin in the Heart of Perthshire.
This was the job at hand, to deliver an award winning piece of bespoke building architecture that will sit in pride of place at Gleneagles golf course.
We pride ourselves on being a premier builder of bespoke log cabins across Scotland and the Islands, so, here we were ready to begin building our latest bespoke log cabin project at the 9th Hole of this very famous golf course in Perthshire.
Gleneagles Hotels had decided that Log Cabins Scotland were the go to company in Scotland and that LCS represented for them the quality and diversity we could offer, which made us stick out from the competition and so be chosen by Gleneagles to construct for them a bespoke log cabin aptly titled the ‘half way house’. This would be located near the 9th hole and built to a very high standard.
The day after the Solheim Cup ended, delivery of the new halfway house was made and building started.
On day 1 the floorjoists were in place and by the end of day 2 the kit was sorted out and building by LCS began in earnest.
By the end of week 1 the cabin was kit was built with all walls and internal rooms formed, with 1st layer of roofboards complete and painted with 4 coats of Teknos primer and topcoat.
The following week we had all the electric wiring concealed, and this was probably the largest wiring system of any cabin as it was to have emergency lighting as well as a full professional catering kitchen installed.
With the roof and floor insulated and the interior painted with fire retardant paint, the next stage was final fit of electrics, plumbing by 1st fix. On completion of that work then the floors could be laid, followed by vinyl floorcoverings to the kitchen and toilet, with rubber flooring to the main entrance on the entry from the course itself – for golfers with studs in their shoes!
Finally the building had its stainless steel kitchen fitted, groundworks done to outside and then handed over to the clients Gleneagles Hotels Ltd. All that is left to do now is a little landscaping by the grounds team.
And so the bespoke log cabin project delivered by LCS to Gleneagles Golf Courses in Perthshire erected using 70mm solid log Log Cabin is complete. With its full professional kitchen, toilet, store room and large dining area. The completed building provides views on 3 sides to the PGA course.
This is typically the usual high quality standard of build that Log Cabins Scotland deliver aand many of its projects are showcased across the website. And of course built to meet with the expected timelines applied to the project.
If you are considering the purchase of a more than average outdoor building or wood built extension, and it maybe something that requires to be fully building control compliant, and stands up to the all the elements, then think LCS. Your next garden room project could feature an insulated roof and floor, pre-painted windows and doors, Katepal fire rated roofing shingles, with an internal intumescent fire retarding paint finish, and an exterior paint decoration that gives your log cabin that touch of luxury look.
