Our experts say this has 3 stand out features. A stand out feature is something found on over 70% of the top 10% of products in a particular category or is an exceptionally good feature as rated by our panel of experts.

1. The tongue & groove floor material is a great choice and is what we find being used by 94% of the top 10% of log cabins.

2. A 19mm thick cladding like the one used on walls of this log cabin is one of the best rated by our experts.

3. The mineral felt roof covering found on this log cabin is rated to be one of the best by our experts.

Below is a brief overview of how some of the key points of this log cabin fairs across the market.

Cladding

The interlocking boards cladding(walls) used here is an about average form of construction for log cabin walls out of the 2 types [2] we’ve identified on same-size log cabins, that you’ll also see getting used on 3% (29 of 893) of all log cabins analysed [3], and sadly not present at all on any of the 89 log cabins that make up the top 10% of log cabins [4]. You’ll also find the interlocking boards cladding showing up on 4% of 10′ x 12′ log cabins (6 in total) [5], and if we compare this item against those 6 we find it’s Expert Score is 8% higher than the average score for a 10′ x 12′ interlocking boards log cabin.

The walls are 19mm thick and we rate this one of the best thicknesses out of the 8 found on same-size log cabins [6]. It is used on 18% of all log cabins [7] and is also used across 3% of the top 10% of log cabins [8] we analysed. 13% of 10′ x 12′ log cabins (22 in total) use 19mm thick walls [9], and if we compare this item against those 22 we find it’s Expert Score is 5% higher than the average score for a 10′ x 12′ 19mm log cabin.

It comes fitted on 57% of log cabins and used on 58% of the top 10% of 10′ x 12′ log cabins. 60% of 10′ x 12′ log cabins (98 in total) make use of a mineral felt material as a roof covering, and when taking the average Expert Score of those 10′ x 12′ log cabins (86), the Mercia 3.3 x 3.7m Sherwood Log Cabin is just above the average with an Expert Score of 87.

You Might Also Consider

We found 5 10′ x 12′ log cabins with comparable specifications. The Mercia 3.3 x 3.7m Sherwood Log Cabin has an Expert Score that is 7% higher than average and is £2 less expensive than average. If you are looking for the best value or highest expert scoring log cabins out of the 5 with comparable specifications the following might be of interest.

Best value – If you are looking for something comparable that costs less, then you could save £230 with this Mercia 4 x 3m 19mm Reverse Log Cabin. It is priced at £2,650, this is 9% less than this and has an Expert Score of 80, 7 points less than the Mercia 3.3 x 3.7m Sherwood Log Cabin.

The Mercia 3.3 x 3.7m Sherwood Log Cabin is the best scoring log cabin available out of all 5 10′ x 12′ log cabins we analysed.

High Wind Area – If you live in a particularly exposed or high wind area then having a log cabin with a thicker cladding and higher than average frame thickness can be preferable. We found at least 3 log cabins that have a combination of features that can make them more suited to higher wind areas.

Coastal Consideration – If you live in a particularly wet or harsher environment such as by the coast then you might want to consider something with a more robust pressure treatment or something made from metal or plastic, both materials that are particularly suited to such harsh environments. We’ve found at least 3 log cabins that have a combination of features that can make them more suited to higher wind areas.

Public-Facing – Extra security measures might be more of a concern if you’re placing your building in an area that is more public-facing than a garden. Features such as security windows or even having no windows at all, and the ability to lock all opening doors are usually much more important when you have something that is more public-facing. We found at least 3 log cabins that have options that you might find a better fit if this is a concern you have.

More Child Friendly – If you have children and you are looking for something that has that little extra in terms of durability then tougher glazing options might be a better option. Here we have at least 3 other options that will fill those needs.
