A Mercia log cabin isn't just a garden room, it's an extension to your home and we're even able to offer them installed within the UK. They often come with a choice of 19mm, 28mm, 34mm and 44mm logs manufactured from kiln dried smooth planed Baltic pine timber, all of which is FSC. Many of the Mercia log cabins have an option for double glazing, which is great if you want to extend the use through the seasons. When planning to build a log cabin in your garden, it’s always important to plan the footprint first and the aspect it will face in your garden. Height of the garden building is an important consideration, as some come with a high ridge such as the Mercia Pool House Log Cabin or some are designed with a low pitch such as the Mercia Contemporary Garden Log Cabin. Log cabins always need to be constructed from a level hardstanding and in general most local authorities allow upto 2.5m in ridge height without planning but it's always wise to check with your local authority before buying. Garden Offices in the UK are really popular for people who work from home and need extra office space, and selecting the right log cabin for this purpose will offer a quick solution, as they can be built really quickly and be ready to use in no time. The Mercia 5m x 3m Corner Lodge Plus Log Cabin actually comes with a built in store room. One of the most common uses of a log cabin is to use it as a summerhouse or garden room, which really do look attractive in your garden, especially with low glazed French windows and verandas. More recently, corner Log Cabins have become popular, as they often fit into an unused corner of the garden and become a stunning feature. We can offer an assembly service if required, so all you would need to do is ensure you have a pre prepared hardstanding base before the fitters arrive. We strongly recommend all our log cabins are treated with a high quality timber preservative as soon as possible, as the timbers arrive without any protection. Packs of felt shingles can also be added to give the effect of the tiled roof, the perfect finishing touch to your Mercia Log Cabin.
