Case Study – Waney Edged Wood Cabin

Hunting Cabin. The Wooden Workshop, Oakford, Tiverton, Devon.


This Waney edged wood cabin was one our largest outbuilding projects. We were approached by a customer in Wales to construct this wonderful rustic style holiday cabin. This cabin contains everything needed to provide a relaxing retreat in the beautiful Welsh countryside.

Planning and Design

We met with the customer to ensure we provided the best service and finished product, discussing every detail from the foundations up. Waney edge siding was chosen to best blend in with the surroundings as it provides a beautiful, natural finish.
