Tesco today announced that they are offering a Finnlife log cabin for just £9,999.

The log cabins measure 32ft by 16ft 10ins, and when assembled comprises five rooms and a ‘handy upstairs storage area’. The home has eight windows, French doors and a felt shingle roof.

The cabin features an outside decking area and double-glazing all round, and can be upgraded to include guttering, laminate flooring and under floor heating.

The house is manufactured from high-grade Scandinavian whitewood, and must be ordered online.

Tesco warns interested buyers that they may need planning permission and building approval before assembling the cabin. It is constructed using 44mm thick tongue-and-groove boards which slot together. Each cabin comes complete with a building manual and lists the tools required including a ladder, saw, screwdriver, mallet and tape measure.

The manual states: “No specialist skills are required. Anyone can build a Finnlife log cabin although some tasks may require more than one pair of hands. Construction times will vary depending on your skills and the number of people helping you.” The manual also suggests “it should be built on foundations of concrete or compressed gravel.”

A Tesco spokesman said: “Customers lifestyles mean demand for extra space at home just keeps growing. At  £9,999, we don’t expect our Tesco Direct log cabin to be an impulse purchase but it is certainly less hassle and less costly than moving house or building an extension. With five rooms, a storage loft, a deck terrace and double glazing this is a brilliant addition to our range and could be anything from an office or a gym to a lounging area and playroom.”
