Luxury Log Cabins
Many people dream of having a log cabin in the woods, full of rustic chunky wooden furniture and comfy textiles with views of the forest. That dream could be somewhat of a reality – as you could have your very own luxury log cabin on your property. Log cabins are a great way to add extra space to a garden, they can be used as home offices, home gyms, games rooms, garden bars and summer houses. There are plenty of log cabins for sale in a variety of designs to suit you needs – here are just a few ideas of how you could use yours:
With so many of us working from home during the pandemic more and more people have had to think about office space. Many regular freelancers may work from a desk or table in their living rooms but space can be an issue. If you also have your family at home, you may wish you had your own office to retreat to, where you can get on with your work in peace and quiet without the distractions of home. A garden cabin is the perfect solution for this.
Gym equipment, many of us have exercise bikes and rowing machines, even treadmills at home. These all require a lot of space and many of us have nowhere to put this bulky equipment out of sight when it isn’t being used. If you love working out a log cabin could make an excellent private gym space or even a yoga studio which would save an instructor money in the long run having to hire out a hall.
A summer house in the garden with decking or a veranda around it gives you so many options. Imagine having a new area to sit and enjoy in the summer months! Inside you can add areas to relax maybe with a swing chair or a hammock and if it is raining, large sliding glass doors can still give you that natural light and outdoorsy feeling.
If you have a big family with children (especially teenagers) a games room would be a great edition. Not only could you set up consoles and a projector for movie nights – there is also the option of adding a pool table and other larger games that ordinarily you wouldn’t have space for indoors. It is also a great extra space for sleepovers.
I have a few friends who have had timber framed bars built in their gardens. Imagine having your own pub! You can set up seating areas, tables and a bar area with optics. Now that Covid-19 restrictions are being lifted you can also start inviting a few friends over to sit outdoors and enjoy a nice drink together.
The options are pretty endless. Remember to always check with your local council and get permission before you start any new building projects. Not only could a cabin bring a lot of joy to your family but it could also add value to your property. A win-win in our eyes.
