Log Cabin Frequently Asked Questions:

What size log cabin do I need?
We would always recommend that your decision making is based on the biggest log cabin you can afford. It will of course need to fit in the space you have allocated without any restrictions. You will find that just like a house, you will always find use for the space. Of course size and space will come down to what you will potentially use the Log Cabin for ie Garden Office, Games Room, Hobby Room or for Dining.

What should I consider when choosing a location for my log cabin?
Unlike some Log Cabins with Mercia Log Cabins you actually build the cabin from the inside but you will need enough room to be able to assemble the roof and treat the external walls. We would therefore recommend that your log cabin should ideally have a clear space of at least 18" wide on all sides, if possible. We know that this can sometimes be an issue and therefore a reduced clearance is often possible on one or two sides. When considering your space around your log cabin (particularly where there are space constraints) remember to allow for any roof overhang. You should also clear the area of any nearby shrubs and trees and remember to allow for future growth. If possible a sheltered position is better.

What is the best way to prepare a base for my Log Cabin?
The most important guarantee of stability and long life of the Cabin is a good foundation. All log cabins require a well prepared, solid, flat, level concrete base to ensure a long lasting and stable installation. It should have a very slight fall to prevent water laying on it. We do not recommend slab and / or shingle bases as an uneven base or subsequent settling will cause excessive strain and may damage your building. Guidelines for preparing a base are issued subsequent to placing an order and are also available upon request.

What tools do I need to build my Log Cabin?
The following tools will be required: Ladder, Screwdriver, Rubber Mallet, Spirit Level, Tape Measure, Drill, Hammer and Saw.

Does the Log Cabin need to be treated?
Log Cabins are supplied untreated. We explain in the section below the reasons for this. However as it is untreated it will enable you to decorate and finish your log cabin to your own individual style and taste. Please Note: the bearers are pre-treated with pressure treatment therefore any wood that comes into contact with the ground is powerfully treated to prevent against decay and insect infestation. It is advised that you treat your log cabin when it has been constructed with a suitable external wood treatment (there are some parts which will need treating prior to assembly which are detailed in the instructions) and treat the external walls periodically after that in order to maintain and prolong the life and beauty of your log cabin. We would also recommend the maintenance of doors and window hinges that you regularly oil these to ensure a continued smooth operation.

Why don't you pre-treat Log Cabins?
Log cabin timber is kiln dried, a process that reduces moisture content. This drying ensures that all wood is reasonably sized and capable of locking together tightly and securely. If timber was to be pre-treated for customers, the rigidly sized pieces of wood would have to be coated with preservative at this stage of production. Each piece would absorb varying amounts of treatment and drying times would be inconsistent. This process would expand to different sizes and this movement would prevent the interlocking log walls from fitting together tightly and securely, if at all.

Do you offer an Installation Service?
Yes. We offer an installation service throughout the majority of the UK mainland. Installation by one of Mercia's experienced assembly teams. Please be aware that adding the assembly option could increase the lead time by up to 2 weeks.

How easy are Mercia Log Cabins to assemble?
You will not need to be a DIY professional to put up a Mercia log cabin. Comprehensive, accurate and extremely easy to follow assembly instructions are supplied.
