Constructed using high-quality timber, the Tongue and Groove cladding offers a premium, weatherproof build with a stylish finish.
44mm thick framing and reflective multi-foil insulation are sealed between two 11mm Tongue and Groove cladding layers to form 66mm thick fully-insulated panels.
Features opening windows with 14mm double glazing as standard, to both insulate and ventilate your building.
Multi-foil insulation in the walls, floor and roof keeps your building at an optimum temperature allowing you to use your building all year round.
You can configure the Outpost to suit your garden with moveable door and window panels thanks to its modular construction.
Quicker and easier to build than a typical log cabin, the Outpost is delivered in handy pre-assembled panels.

The Outpost can be delivered to you untreated, providing you with a natural wood appearance. You will need to treat this annually and after assembly to protect your wood against rot or decay.
For increased longevity, you can opt for pressure treatment for your building. Here, wood is treated with chemical preservatives in a vacuum to allow them to penetrate deep into the wood’s fibres to resist rot or decay. Upgrading to a Pressure Treated Outpost means you also get an extended 15-year guarantee.
All garden buildings should be assembled on a firm and level base. A base will ensure your building has a solid, long-lasting and well-drained foundation.
If you want to build your own base, from a sturdy material such as concrete or flagstones, you can find minimum dimensions for each size of this building in the tech specs. In order to protect your building from moisture, you should leave a 2ft gap around the exterior of your building, so remember to take this into consideration when laying any sort of base.
Our robust and simple to use EcoBase provides you with a firm, long-lasting foundation with suitable drainage for your garden building. It is quick and easy to install through the use of snap connectors that link the grids to each other.
We offer a range of roofing and flooring options, so depending on how you’re going to use your log cabin, you can choose the best one for you.
The Outpost comes with an 11mm Tongue and Groove Floor and Roof as standard. The interlocking roof and floor provides a reliable ceiling and a solid foundation and underfoot to the building. Tongue and Groove not only gives your building a stronger construction but also a premium look and feel.
With the option to upgrade to 19mm, you can opt for a more premium floor that’s also perfect for higher intensity usage. This specific floor is the perfect option if you’re planning on using the building as an everyday use office, gym or games room with heavy objects.
If your building is shorter than 2.5m you should not require planning permission, (unless it’s more than 50% of your garden or will be placed in your front garden). Planning permission rules can vary by area so we would strongly recommend checking your local council rules before purchasing a garden building from us.
Your order can be tracked through the account section on our website or by contacting us directly. You will be contacted after your order via your online account, email or text to provide updates on delivery dates.
The Outpost is the optimal garden building for year-round use. As a completely insulated building with double glazing as standard, you can be sure to stay warm and cosy within your garden room. The insulation is laid under the floorboards, between the dual-layered walls and within the double-skinned roofing section. The building is delivered as panels with the necessary insulation, making it simple to insulate and install, allowing you to construct the building within a day.
Our garden office buildings have become all the rage recently with so many people transitioning to work from home. So if it's a garden office you need, then the Outpost offers the perfect space. It won't just free up additional space in your garden, it's also the perfect garden building to use as a garden home office or to even run a small business from.
A garden office pod is the perfect design for this purpose, and the log cabin style with full insulation ensures that you can work comfortably year-round. Insulated garden offices can also be a significant value-booster to your property and garden space. So pick up your BillyOh bespoke garden office today.
For use in the colder months, and to generally improve the insulation properties of this building, we've included insulation materials to combat heat loss. These will also ensure thermal regulation at all points of this building's heat envelope.
Your garden building's thermal envelope is essentially every point at which heat leaves. By insulating these areas we can reduce this heat loss but also ensure better thermal regulation. And one of the most significant areas for heat loss is the roof.
That's why the pent flat roof design of the Outpost is double-skinned with 11mm tongue and groove panels. It also features EcoQuilt insulation and tear-free roofing felt for added layers of protection against even harsh weather conditions.
Using 66mm thick insulated panel construction wall logs, the outpost features some of the thickest cladding available. This cladding thickness, combined with the constructions style, creates a tight seal against heat loss.
The walls are double skinned from an 11mm tongue and groove panel and internal cladding, which sandwiches the quality insulation. With the Outpost, an 11mm tongue and groove roof and floor are included as standard, along with roofing felt to complete your building. Both the roof and floor can be upgraded independently to 19mm thick tongue and groove, which is more robust and is excellent for heavier uses such as heavy furniture, desk areas or items such as office chairs.
Using high-quality European sourced timber, the Outpost comes out as a fully insulated garden. Tongue and groove cladding used in the floor, roof, and walls interlocks to add structural stability and reduce gaps where heat might be lost. You can even upgrade the floor and roof cladding thickness to 19mm as optional extras.
But a fully-insulated garden isn't just about surviving the colder months! Wide-opening double doors mean that you can allow cool air flow in the warmer months. Plus, the fully-glazed doors allow for loads of natural light to enter your office.
EcoQuilt floor insulation goes underneath the tongue and groove flooring to combat both heat loss and rising damp. You can purchase an optional Ecobase or construct your Outpost on any level base including timber bearers, pavers, or ideally - a concrete base.
Double-glazed windows and glass on the doors mean create a vacuum between indoor and outdoor temperature. Thus, glazed windows reduce the possibility of condensation forming and help to regulate heat at one of the largest parts of your thermal envelope.
The Outpost comes with double glazing on all of the included windows and doors. This building comes with tall double doors and four opening windows, giving your building a beautiful interior with lots of natural light and fresh air, making it a great space to work and relax. The Outpost is a versatile building that works incredibly as a family room, garden office, summerhouse or home gym, keeping everyone happy and comfortable all year round.
The Outpost comes with optional pressure treatment to help extend the life of your garden building. By treating timber with wood preservatives in a vacuum, more comprehensive cover is ensured. That's why we can offer our BillyOh 15-year guarantee against insect infestation, decay, and rot on our pressure-treated buildings.
Otherwise, we suggested purchasing wood treatment and applying to all outdoor buildings annually to protect against harsh weather conditions.
Our insulated garden offices will fall under what's called 'permitted development' and won't require planning permission, so long as they:
That's why our BillyOh Outpost is built with these height measurements in mind. Planning permission may vary with your local council, however, and you can always check with them for further planning regulations.
