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

Cladding

Amazing, 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 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 72% (639 of 893) of all log cabins analysed [3], as well as being used on 98% (87 of 89) of the top 10% of log cabins [4]. You’ll also find the interlocking log cladding showing up on 67% of 11′ x 10′ log cabins (140 in total) [5], and when taking the average Expert Score of those 11′ x 10′ log cabins (88), the Shire Berryfield 11 x 10ft Double Door Garden Log Cabin is just above the average with an Expert Score of 90.

The walls are 19mm thick and we rate this one of the best thicknesses out of the 5 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. 19% of 11′ x 10′ log cabins (39 in total) use 19mm thick walls [9], and if we compare this item against those 39 we find it’s Expert Score is 6% higher than the average score for a 11′ x 10′ 19mm log cabin.

It comes fitted on 57% of log cabins and used on 58% of the top 10% of 11′ x 10′ log cabins. 62% of 11′ x 10′ log cabins (131 in total) make use of a mineral felt material as a roof covering, and when taking the average Expert Score of those 11′ x 10′ log cabins (86), the Shire Berryfield 11 x 10ft Double Door Garden Log Cabin is just above the average with an Expert Score of 90.

We found 13 11′ x 10′ log cabins with comparable specifications. The Shire Berryfield 11 x 10ft Double Door Garden Log Cabin has an Expert Score that is 8% higher than average and is £33 less expensive than average. If you are looking for the best value or highest expert scoring log cabins out of the 13 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 £101 with this Loxley 3.4m x 2.4m Crosby Log Cabin. It is priced at £1,744, this is 6% less than this and has an Expert Score of 87, 2 points less than the Shire Berryfield 11 x 10ft Double Door Garden Log Cabin.

The Shire Berryfield 11 x 10ft Double Door Garden Log Cabin is the best scoring log cabin available out of all 13 11′ x 10′ 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.

1. Untreated: Any wooden structure that is left untreated will have its lifespan dramatically shortened. This is especially the case with Douglas fir or European softwoods such as Whitewood (spruce) or Redwood (Pine), most garden buildings sold in the UK are made from such wood.

The Wood Protection Association says that “the risk of attack increases significantly if the moisture content of wood, for any reason, rises above 20%” they also talk about how more lower durability cuts of wood (known as sapwood) are getting used to build with than in years gone by. They also say that “sapwood on the other hand is a source of food for many species of fungi and insects and is always vulnerable to attack.” This risk is particularly prevalent with European softwoods.

The BS 8417 code of practice (this advises on the choice of timber species and the use and application of wood preservatives) and BS EN 350:2016 (this advises on methods for determining and classifying the durability of wood and wood-based materials against biological wood-destroying agents) says the natural durability class of such European softwoods is between 3 and 5. With class 3 listed as moderately durable, class 4 listed as slightly durable and class 5 listed as not durable. All three classes have a service life of less than 15 years in a frequently wet environment (such as a UK garden). Yet the application of a preservative treatment or modification of lower durability species is designed according to BS8605 part1 (this is the British standards specifications for external timber cladding) to extend service life to 15/30 years or more.

Having a wooden garden structure supplied as untreated is relatively rare. The vast majority of wooden buildings are supplied with some form of basic treatment, usually a short term water based dip treatment. If you buy an untreated wooden building/structure then we strongly advise that you treat it annually with a solvent-based wood treatment. For full penetration it requires 2-3 coats. It is also recommended that you treat the inside of the structure as well.

If you are wanting something that will require much less maintenance throughout the products life cycle then we would strongly suggest looking at something that is pressure treated also known as tanalised timber.

By correctly treating timber you can take a sub 15 year service life for a not very durable European softwood and extend its service life to 15/30 years or more according to the Timber Decking and Cladding Association

2. FSC Certified Timber: The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) is an international organisation that is “dedicated to promoting responsible management of the world’s forests.” When you see the FSC certification it means the forest where this wood was sourced from is being managed in a way that preserves biological diversity, while ensuring it sustains economic viability. FSC-certified forests are managed to strict environmental, social and economic standards. FSC certified timber is comparable to Certified Timber
