Style and Design
An attractive and good sized corner summer house in a traditional style, the Nancy III, at 10' x 10' is the larger version of the Nancy II. It features robust, quality construction with some stylish features available as optional extras. The part glazed double doors, allow plenty of access for furniture and larger items and a floor is supplied as standard. The windows allow plenty of light in ensuring a bright interior with a good sense of space and the building overall represents a quality addition to the garden.
The Nancy III features 28mm interlocking northern European pine log construction with roof shingles in green, red or black depending on supplier.
The building measures up at an accommodating 10' x 10' (3.05 x 3.05m). There's a roof overhang of 13'' (32.9cm) while there's plenty of headroom with a height of 7'3'' (2.22m) at the eaves and 9'3'' (2.82m) at the ridge.
The timbers of the Nancy III are untreated so you'll have to take the time to apply a suitable decorative/preservative finish at the time of construction or very shortly thereafter. This will require to be maintained on a regular basis to preserve the appearance of the building.
You'll find a number of optional extras available for the Nancy III, including window boxes and shutters. Depending on the supplier a choice of roof shingle colour may also be available. You may also find it possible to purchase additional "add on" accommodation in the form of a single or double annex to provide a useful extra storage facility.
The summerhouse is delivered with full instructions ready for diy home assembly.

We certainly can't fault the Nancy III on the basis of its looks or the build quality. 28mm interlocking log construction with roof shingles as standard will give you a solid, robust structure well able to withstand the rigours of weather and usage. You will have to make sure you apply a suitable finish at the time of construction though - and this shouldn't be neglected or delayed as untreated timbers will rapidly take on a worn, tired look when exposed to the elements and once this has happened it can be difficult to retrieve the situation.
Where we would perhaps pick the Nancy III up is on the question of value. On the other pages of this Guide you'll find a number of 10' x 10' buildings of similar 28mm log construction available - generally for less financial outlay - and we'd suggest you check these out to see if they offer what you're looking for at a lower price. Here we're thinking mainly of the likes of the Wenlock, the Kestrel, the Melanie, the Ardcastle and the Greenacre 3x3. All these have comparable accommodation at a similar specification but generally come in at a better price. Having said this, however, if you do opt for the Nancy III you should get a solid corner summer house of real quality which will stand you in good stead for many years to come.
