Cabin Living - affordable garden offices

Like if this guide is helpful

With rising train fares and a stagnant housing market the opportunity to work from home or expand your living space for your family is more tempting than ever. With such a slow housing market many are looking for alternative ways to create extra living space either as a home office, guest room, or additional playroom without the disruption of an extension or the expense of moving house.
Many small businesses are exploring the opportunity of working from home with new online start-up businesses being created every month and an office in your garden can be the perfect solution as these businesses develop.
Business customers still want value for money without compromising on quality. A garden office must be warm and comfortable, with features such as double glazing and under-floor heating to ensure office computers and paperwork are maintained in perfect order.

The range of garden buildings available can vary significantly but if you search carefully you can find log cabin kits which offer quality construction at an affordable price. Combined with the variety of options for your garden room you can tailor the comfort levels of your building to your own specification.

Requests continue to rise for garden buildings less than 2.5metres high which can be sited within 2 metres of a boundary to comply with recent changes to planning permission rules for England and Wales.
Ideally you need to find a company which offers comprehensive installation services in the UK including concrete base work, floor and ceiling insulation using thick sheets of Celotex or Kingspan, under-floor heating, laminate or real wood floors and exterior painting with Osmo wood-stain or Sadolin One coat finishes.
Anyone taking on an installation project likes to be able to work to a budget and ideally you need a company with clear pricing for every option available so that you are able to work out exactly how much your new garden building will cost without having to call a helpline.
Most customers value an end to end service but it is also possible to find companies where you can pick and choose services as you require them, outsourcing jobs to local tradesmen if this is more cost effective.
Many large log cabins can be used as residential log cabins which come with the same options as garden offices and offer 2 bedrooms, a shower room and a combined open plan kitchen - living room.
These cabins can be built to building regulation standards for insulation and are ideally suited to holiday parks, guest houses and lodges for farm worker accommodation.
