Testimonial 

We found Southwicks after looking online for both local and national suppliers of Log Cabins.  At first we considered a self-build but this seemed like a daunting task, certainly compared with building a simple 6 x 8 shed anyway.  Jon invited us to see a build in progress and we were sold there and then.  At first the cost was more than we had budgeted for but the end-to-end service Southwicks provide enabled us to move straight in on completion.

We chose our own exterior lights and made additional personal choices like chrome handles inside and out (instead of gold), chrome spotlights, etc. and this was no problem for Jon and the team.

Thank you to Jon, Dave, Dan and Lee for giving us the little piece of New England we were looking for in our old English garden.

Carol and Geoff, Portchester
