Build a log cabin structure on difficult ground

Setting strong foundations over significantly sloping ground

The biggest challenge of this project was achieving a sturdy, level base that would support the garden building over a significant 13º slope.

Excavation and the laying of traditional foundations simply weren’t an option due to the damage they would cause, and the client’s site was both enclosed and located in an elevated area to the rear of the garden.

Overcoming the 13º sloping ground without digging or damage

Three varying lengths of RADIX PRO Ground Screws (1250mm, 1550mm, and 2050mm) were selected and positioned to offer maximum load-bearing capacities, providing the level base and stability required for the build, with a total installation of eight screws and a timber subframe.

Although the site was a distance from the main road and along the side of the house and up some steps, access was not a problem for our install division, which easily transported the ground screws, materials, portable ground screw machines, and installation equipment needed to complete the installation.
