            Ways to Make the Most of Your Retreat Log Cabin

            There are plenty of ways to make the most of a Mercia Retreat Log Cabin. In simplest terms, it will give you an excellent new space that you can take advantage of for anything you can’t find the room for in your home. Its opening window and wide opening double doors give you the advantage of being able to easily control the temperature inside your cabin. You can throw them open in the summer to spill out into your garden or allow a cool breeze inside your cabin. Alternatively, shutting yourself inside in the colder months, you can seal yourself cosily away from the elements, which will really enable you to get the best out of your log cabin all year round. Providing a quiet spot away from any possible distractions in your home, the Retreat could give you an ideal space to set up as a home office. Many find the outdoor atmosphere great for concentration, making a log cabin a perfect working environment. Alternatively, the Retreat provides just the solution for anyone who is starting to outgrow their home, especially when moving to somewhere larger might be unaffordable or impractical. By turning unused garden space into a valuable new room, you will soon wonder how you managed without the extra space. Whether you are looking for a spacious and airy home gym, want to design and set up a bar for your garden, or even if you’re after a stylish music studio and practice room, then the Retreat could be exactly what you need.

            Why the Retreat Might Be For You

            The Retreat boasts a simple yet stylish traditional design that has seen many customers choose it for their garden. But it is the beautiful, overhanging roof that really catches the eye, and this is what really brings the Retreat to life when compared to other log cabins. With wide opening doors allowing easy access, as well as plenty of room to fit in larger items of furniture, their ¾ length glazing allows plenty of light in, as well as great views of your garden when looking out. An opening window is located to the side of the door which further adds to the bright, airy feel of the interior. The tongue and groove roof, floor and walls provide the stunning timber finish to the interior which means you will notice the quality of the cabin as soon as you step inside.


            The Retreat Log Cabin boasts a number of features that show its quality. Supplied as standard with heavy duty roofing felt, this creates a weatherproof barrier and helps to prevent wood rot and weather damage. The 28mm Tongue and Groove cladding ensures that the Retreat is snug on the inside and sealed away from the elements. Many customers choose to upgrade the wall thickness for extra, all-year-round cosiness – 34mm or 44mm thick wall logs are available if this is an option that interests you.  The interior is further sealed from the elements by the log cabin’s overlapping corners, with its four way corner joints also adding stability and durability to the Retreat. The double doors are secure and lockable, with a key supplied. This provides valuable extra peace of mind, particularly when leaving items in your cabin overnight. The door and window position is reversible, meaning they can be located on whichever side best suits your outdoor space. Sturdy floor bearers provide extra support for your log cabin as well as helping to protect against damp and rot.16mm tongue and groove roof and flooring completes this quality log cabin package, providing you with a sturdy, durable roof and a robust floor that can support heavy loads. We’re pleased to offer the option of booking our dedicated professionals who will assemble your log cabin quickly and correctly. However, you can choose to use the comprehensive instructions included with the log cabin and construct it yourself.

            About Your Order

            The Mercia Log Cabin is made in the UK with FSC® certified timber. You get a top-quality garden cabin with a low carbon footprint made from ethically sourced materials. The clean and straightforward design makes it easy to assemble, and all the fixtures and fittings required are included as part of your order. This log cabin will be delivered in individual tongue and groove timber lengths.  The log cabin has a 10-year anti-rot guarantee and a 12-month manufacturer's warranty to enjoy it for many seasons. 

            Please note: Images may show accessories and furnishings for display purposes only and are not included with your purchase. 

            Does A Log Cabin Require Planning Permission?

            The garden building designs have been created to adhere to planning permission guidelines. However, we cannot guarantee that you will not need planning permission for a log cabin.  We advise checking with your local authorities before constructing your garden room.

            What Log Cabin Base Do I Need?

            A flat, level base is required to install your log cabin. You can contact us for more information on building a garden room base.

            Before installation, check that the base is level in all directions. If the floor is not level, it will cause the building to twist and warp with the natural movement of the timber. It’s essential to adjust your base accordingly to achieve this before the installation process begins.

            Log Cabin Aftercare

            The Mercia Log Cabin with a side shed is supplied untreated. To ensure you enjoy your garden cabin for many seasons, you must apply a preservative and waterproofing topcoat immediately after installation. These treatments, followed by yearly log cabin treatment, will maintain the high-quality finish and retain the 10-year anti-rot guarantee. A 1-year manufacturer's warranty is included as standard.

            To treat the garden room, elbec recommends Protek wood treatment. Browse our Protek Royal Exterior Wood Finish Paint range to find the best paint colour to add your personalised finish.  We have selected some of the best-selling Protek Royal Colours as an option on this page and the highly recommended Protek Wood Preserver++.

            Booking Delivery

            You will be required to book your delivery date at the time of placing your order (except for Metal Shed). Our 'Request a Delivery Date' service is available to the majority of areas and you'll find that the majority of the UK postcodes are FREE but some areas may incur a delivery surcharge and some postcodes are not covered at all. Select a 'requested delivery date' by entering your postcode in the 'Request a delivery date' section above. You will also be notified at this time if your area incurs a surcharge or delivery is not covered in your area.

            Prior to Delivery

            On the morning of your delivery date, you'll be sent an update by text with an estimated 2-hour delivery slot (this update can only be provided where a mobile number has been supplied on the billing address section at the time of checkout) together with a link to the manufacturer delivery portal where you'll be able to track your order.

            Please note: Mercia Metal Sheds ONLY - your order is delivered by a courier you will not be notified prior to the delivery. If you are not in on the day of the delivery you will be carded and asked to contact the courier to arrange a new mutual delivery date. The estimated delivery lead time for Mercia's Metal sheds is identified on the product for the metal shed. Lead times are on working days (Monday - Friday) excludes Bank Holidays. These estimated lead times are provided by the manufacturer. Some remote areas will take a little longer.

            Upon Delivery

            Your order is delivered either kerbside or driveway and will be delivered on either a 3.5T, 7.5T or 18T Lorry. Unfortunately due to health and safety and insurance liabilities the driver will not be able to take your goods around to the back of your property but may upon request place the product at the side of the house if there are no access or restriction issues. We would not risk damaging your property whilst delivering a product to an unsafe location. Unfortunately, we will not be able to go through your property.

            We would recommend against arranging for a third party to install the building before it's been delivered and checked that all parts are present, as we cannot be held liable for any third-party costs.


            Orders with Assembly 

            The lead time for our installation option is around 7 Weeks from the date of order. With the installation option, the majority of orders will have their delivery and installation on separate days; there will be a small number of orders which will have delivery and installation on the same day. You will be advised by the manufacturer's installation team which category your order falls into.

            Depending on the installation option for your order, you will be contacted within the delivery timescale and given a date for either delivery/assembly on the same date or a separate date for delivery and assembly.
