Croatia’s premier oak and timber buildings now available in the UK

Now self builders can benefit from some of the most desirable and sustainable timber buildings in the world, thanks to an exclusive partnership between Azelija, Croatia’s leading manufacturer of oak and timber buildings, and UK company, CroatianCabin Ltd.

Online PR News – 10-September-2010 – – Now self builders can benefit from some of the most desirable and sustainable timber buildings in the world, thanks to an exclusive partnership between Azelija, Croatia’s leading manufacturer of oak and timber buildings, and UK company, CroatianCabin Ltd.

Ideal for all types of self build projects – including large and small homes, garden rooms, stables and garages – Azelija buildings are made from FSC Slavonian oak and FSC Croatian spruce using the patented interlocking AZ beam system, which provides superior strength stability and eliminates the movement often associated with solid log construction methods.

These unique laminated and insulated beams are stronger and lighter than conventional solid beams resulting in easy to assemble buildings. In most cases no specialist lifting equipment is required, as even beams measuring 13 metres can be manoeuvred by hand.

Azelija buildings achieve the highest levels of energy efficiency, boasting a thermal coefficient (U value) of as low as the 0.172 required for Passiv Haus construction, and can withstand the harshest conditions, from -20 to +40ÂşC.

CroatianCabin managing director, David Whitewood, comments: “Azelija offers self builders possibly the most flexible, affordable, sustainable and energy efficient buildings available today. We can provide any size or shape of building, anywhere in the UK, with a 10-year guarantee. As Azelija buildings are so quick and easy to erect they can save self builders lots time, money and headaches. These beautiful buildings will bring many years of pleasure to their owners.”

Commissioning an Azelija building is a very simple process. Customers are invited to visit Azelija customers’ homes in Croatia to see the quality and to discuss their requirements. Once a design is selected, the Azelija team provides a full set of drawings and specification for approval. Then, each bespoke Azelija building is expertly crafted at the factory in Croatia and carefully delivered to the UK in kit form ready for easy assembly.

Every Azelija building is custom-built to match individual customers’ requirements. Each individual design can be adapted to provide bespoke buildings at three levels of configuration: shell and roof structure only; optional floors and decking; and, complimentary doors, windows and shutters from Croatian suppliers all made from FSC timber.

Azelija oak and timber buildings are available in a choice of external and internal finishes and lead times are between just six and nine weeks from order to completion.

These premium products are available at very affordable prices with lead times between six and nine weeks. Complete two bedroom cabin kits are available from around ÂŁ14,000.

To celebrate the launch of Azelija in the UK, CroatianCabin is offering some special deals. For further details visit or call 0845 0707 313.
