Our experts say this has 6 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. When looking at cladding material used on the top 10% of all log cabins, interlocking log is used on 98% of them.

2. The tongue & groove construction used for the roof is the same kind you’ll find used across 100% of the top 10% of log cabins.

3. 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.

4. The 19mm thick floor boards are the same thickness we see being used on 88% of the top 10% of log cabins.

5. A 70mm thick cladding like the one used on walls of this log cabin is one of the best rated by our experts.

6. A 19.0mm thick roof construction as thick as this is something our expert rate to be one of the best available on log cabins.

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

Cladding

Outstanding, our experts say most of the cladding options used are among the best.

The interlocking log cladding(walls) used here is the best form of construction for walls and is the only type [1] we’ve identified on same-size log cabins, that you’ll also see getting used on 72% (639 of 893) of all log cabins analysed [2], as well as being used on 98% (87 of 89) of the top 10% of log cabins [3]. Even though the Expert Score of this particular log cabin is 9 points below that of the average interlocking log clad 21′ x 15’s (they have an average Expert Score of 81), with it being on 98% of the top 10%, its use here is a reassuring sign of a high quality cladding. You’ll also find the interlocking log cladding showing up on 100% of 21′ x 15′ log cabins (21 in total) [4].

The walls are 70mm thick and we rate this the best thickness out of the 5 found on same-size log cabins [5]. It is used on 1% of all log cabins [6] and after analysing the top 89 products that make up the top 10% of log cabins [7], we don’t find this thickness present on any of them. While you’ll find that the Expert Score of this log cabin is 8 points lower than the average for 21′ x 15’s that use 70mm thick cladding (72 vs the average of 80) [8], you can be sure it’s not due to the cladding thickness as this one of the highest scoring thicknesses available on 21′ x 15′ log cabins. 10% of 21′ x 15′ log cabins (2 in total) use 70mm thick walls.

Roofing

Tongue & groove is the cladding used for the roofing, our experts rate this the best form of roof material and is the only type we’ve found on same-size log cabins [9]. This roofing material is used on 64% of all log cabins analysed, and 100% of the top 10% of log cabins. Even though the Expert Score of this particular log cabin is 9 points below the average of 81 for 21′ x 15’s using a tongue & groove roofing, with it being on 100% of the top 10%, you can be assured that this is a quality roof material. 100% of 21′ x 15′ log cabins (21 in total) use tongue & groove construction for the roof.

A 19.0mm thick roof boarding was used on this log cabin which is the best thickness used for a roofing material out of 2 thicknesses identified on same-size log cabins [10]. It’s used on 7% of all log cabins and 20% of the top 10% of log cabins. Even though the Expert Score of this particular log cabin is 9 points below that of the average for 21′ x 15’s that use 19.0mm roofing (72 vs the average of 81), you can be sure it’s not due to the roof thickness as this one of the highest scoring thicknesses available on 21′ x 15′ log cabins. 43% of 21′ x 15′ log cabins (9 in total) use a 19.0mm thick roof boarding.

Flooring

Great, our experts say most of the flooring options used are among the best.

This type of floor construction is used on 74% of all log cabins we analysed, and 94% of the top 10% of those log cabins. Even though the Expert Score of this particular log cabin is 10 points below the average of 82 for 21′ x 15’s using a tongue & groove flooring, with it being on 94% of the top 10%, you can be assured that this is a quality flooring material. 81% of 21′ x 15′ log cabins (17 in total) use tongue & groove construction for the floor.

A 19mm thick floor boarding is used here, this is the best floor board thickness according to our experts out of 2 found on same-size log cabins [12]. It’s found on 39% of all log cabins and used on 88% of the top 10% of log cabins. Even though the Expert Score of this particular log cabin is below the average 21′ x 15’s that use 19mm flooring (72 vs the average of 83), with it being on 88% of the top 10%, this should give you confidence in its quality. 76% of 21′ x 15′ log cabins (16 in total) use 19mm thick floor boarding.

If you are looking for the best value or highest expert scoring log cabins out of the 21 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 £6,100 with this Forest Blakedown 6m x 4m Log Cabin. It is priced at £6,699, this is 91% less than this and has an Expert Score of 90, 17 points higher than the Palmako Sandra 6.3 x 4.5m Log Cabin Garden Building.

Highest Expert Score – With an Expert Score of 92 vs 72 for this product, the Oren 5.6m x 5m Duchess Log Cabin is the best 21′ x 15′ log cabin with comparable specifications, and is priced at £8,484, that’s £4,315 less than the Palmako Sandra 6.3 x 4.5m Log Cabin Garden Building.

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 2 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.
