Fraud Blocker

There’s a story about a shoeshine man who diligently polished and cared for his customer’s shoes—oiling and polishing the leather for decades. When he passed away, they discovered that he had 10 million dollars in his bank account. Nobody knows where he got the money, and while it’s a long bow to draw, might we suggest it’s a good argument for the rewards that come from regular maintenance?

Kitset cabins are a useful addition to your property, offering more space and greater opportunities for work, relaxation, or recreation. While they are made from solid wood, a natural and durable material that can last for decades, they still need to be cared for.


Kitset cabins require regular maintenance and care to keep them in good condition and prevent problems. Here are some tips on how to maintain and care for your kitset cabin over time:

1) Check the roof and gutters regularly. 

The roof is the most exposed part of your kitset cabin, so inspecting it for any signs of damage or leaks is important because falling branches and other debris may cause damage. If you notice any issues with the roof, contact Lifestyle Cabins for advice and repair.

2) Treat the wood periodically. 

The wood used for your kitset cabin is supplied as untreated natural timber, which requires you to oil or paint the exterior and interior according to our instructions in the maintenance manual. The cabin needs to be sealed to maintain its durability. 

Over time, the wood may lose some of its protective properties due to weathering and wear and tear. To preserve the wood and enhance its appearance, you should treat it periodically with a suitable product, such as stain, paint, or oil. Follow the Lifestyle Cabins maintenance manual instructions on how often and how to apply the treatment.

3) Clean the interior and exterior regularly. 

Keeping your kit set cabin clean is good for hygiene and comfort and for preventing dirt and dust from accumulating and causing damage. You should regularly clean the interior and exterior of your kitset cabin with a soft cloth and mild detergent and avoid harsh chemicals or abrasive tools that may damage the wood or other materials. It is also advisable to ventilate your kit set cabin well to prevent mould and mildew growth.

4) Inspect the doors and windows regularly. 

The doors and windows of your kitset cabin are essential for security, insulation, and ventilation. You should inspect them regularly for any signs of damage or malfunction, such as cracks, gaps, warping, or sticking. Make sure to keep hinges and locks lubricated to ensure smooth operation.
