Why 44mm Interlocking Timber is Better Than 12mm Summerhouses

44mm interlocking timber

If you’re looking to build a garden office or simply want to relax in your own private space, consider one of our 44mm interlocking timber log cabins. These specialised structures offer superior warmth and protection from weather thanks to their thick walls, making them a better choice than 12mm summerhouses.

Double tongue and groove construction

A double tongue and groove construction is a very strong type of joinery used in timber buildings. It allows for more strength and stability in the logs, which means they can last longer than those made using other types of joints. This is important for people who want to use their log cabin as a place to relax and unwind, as well as for those who are looking for durability for heavy-duty uses.

The 44mm interlocking timber in our range of log cabins is constructed with a double tongue and groove system which gives it superior strength. This makes it perfect for outdoor buildings, as it has the capability to withstand harsh weather conditions and provide good insulation. It also features a four chamfered notching joint system, which ensures a tight and secure fit.

These joints are commonly used in a wide range of woodworking projects, due to their ease of slotting together and their strength and smooth finish. They also require hardly any adhesives or nails and can be installed quickly and easily.

There are many different ways to install tongue and groove joints, including using a machine or hand planing. Regardless of how you go about it, making tongue and groove joints can be a bit more time-consuming than other woodworking techniques, but they’re definitely worth the effort!

You can find a variety of tools at your local home improvement store to help you create a great looking tongue and groove joint. You may even have an old plane that you can use to make the grooves, but we recommend using a metal plane that is specifically designed for tongue and groove work.

Once you have your tool set up, you can begin grooving your board. To do this, you need to hold the fence of your plane up against the side of the board and move it backwards and forwards until the depth stop is in contact with the wood. Then you can continue to do this until the entire length of the groove is ploughed.

Once the grooving process is complete, you can then start working on the tongue. This will be much easier than you think, as you can simply hold the grooving iron in the right position and press the wood. You can then cut out the desired shape of the tongue.


The top of the class when it comes to warmth, 44mm interlocking timber stands out above the rest. Not only is it thicker than its 28mm cousin, the insulating properties of these high-grade shingles make them the go to option for most families. The most common use is as a garden shed, but it can also be transformed into a home office or even a summerhouse. The best part is you can use your new log cabin all year round – not to mention the neighbours who will be envious. It is also the star of the show for many a family gathering. For the tech savvy, you can even add in smart lighting and a sprinkle of solar panels for added flexibility and power saving. If you have the space and a few thousand pounds to spare, a log cabin can be the nexus of your home and garden with a little planning and a lot of thought.


44mm interlocking timber is extremely durable, with a double tongue and groove construction which tightly interlocks to reduce draughts. This increases the longevity of the building and ensures it will not rot or decay for centuries. It is also more insulated than 28mm, meaning it will reduce the need to heat your building during colder weather. This will significantly reduce running costs, and will give you a comfortable building all year round. This is the perfect garden building for relaxing or entertaining, and will make a stunning addition to any garden!
