Garden Log Cabins
Whether it's a growing family or changing needs that have led you to require more space, there are several things you can do to your home to increase its size. Gardens are often untapped spaces that can be transformed to extend your living space.
Log cabins are a cost-effective and versatile solution to an extension and will enable you to take your new dwellings with you or sell them, should you ever move house. Whether you'd like an extra bedroom, home gym or office space, there's a range of options to choose from.
Garden log cabins are permanent structures made from different types of timber including pine and spruce and are typically formed of thick wooden logs. These woods are chosen for their durability and resistance to mould and rot. Depending on the construction of your structure and the aesthetics you're going for, you can opt for different log thicknesses, from 0-27mm, 28-43mm, 44-69mm and over 70mm.
Choose from hundreds of garden log cabin styles, with several options to build to your own specifications. Cabins come in a range of sizes, from a small hut or gazebo through a miniature version of your house. Here are two of the most popular styles.
Contrary to their name, summerhouses can be used all year round and are a great addition to any garden. Unused space can be transformed into an indoor seating area that can be used for relaxing or entertaining depending on your preference.
Garden offices can be small or large in structure and can give you a peaceful place to get your work done without the long-term costs associated with renting office space.
Whichever style you choose, you'll be able to add a range of doors and windows to let in as much natural light as possible. You can also add electric wiring and plumbing for your comfort.
