    I like Sagano Oak because it mentioned "moisture resistant" not sure how well it would perform in a cabin but due to my recent damp base, I thought It may suit a cabin anyway.

    But I do see what you've done with grey windows frames and grey electrics etc all looks very nice.

    Quick update, not that I have a lot to show for my efforts over my last week's holiday at home...painting :rolleyes:

    First, had a great time at Oktoberfest, in Munich, where the real Oktoberfest happens. Had 3 litres of strong beer and was a bit delicate the morning after but it had to be done. Love my German work colleagues :p


    So last week I was off work at home, thought I would crack on with the cabin and get it finished. Well I got most of the painting done, all 5 coats of it around the cabin. Still got 2 coats of Filter 7 to do under the canopy/roof boards front and back, paint the windows and doors including the now delivered extra window that's sitting by the garage (only took Skinners 3 months to sort it), cut out and fit the window, fix the lights (2x flood and led strip), fit the eaves boards that are now painted, clear the cabin and lay the laminate floor. Then I should be done!!!

    This Sikkens light oak is a bit orangey, not sure why, may be due to the wood underneath. Looks more like antique pine! Hope the graphite grey wood work will look OK. Nothing I can do if not. That Filter 7 really is a lovely finish though, should protect the wood for some years.

    For some reason light oak is always orangey on light colour wood, got caught on that some years ago.:mad:

    Your colour don't look too bad from a distance..:)

    Indeed, looks more orangey with the sun on it though. Could be worse, could be bright blue!!

    I do like blues for my colour choices but it's wood cabin and didn't seem right.

    Glad I picked the orange tinted variation of light oak from Sikkens.
