Five years ago, down at the bottom of the garden, among the birds and the bees, in the shade of the trees, we built our log cabin.
Having lived in our house for seven years and with the family getting bigger we decided a log Cabin would be a cost effective way of expanding our living space. A much more attractive and unique alternative to a conservatory or extension and something we could comfortably build ourselves.
Our garden is not the biggest so we selected a reasonable 10ft x 8ft log cabin made with 28mm tongue and grooved logs.
Our chosen log cabin has an apex roof covered with green shingles, a single door in the gable end and a window in the side.
We also made the wise decision to insulate the floor cavity which really helps in the winter. With a small oil filled radiator its cosy place to spend time.
Over the last five years our log cabin has been used mostly by the kids and their friends as a play room and on occasion they have camped out in it without complaint. As the kids have grown up, our log cabin has developed into a games room for the Xbox.
The cabin is in great condition even after this time with an annual wood treatment and hopefully one day when the kids have grown up it will become my hobby room or office. I always fancied my own man cave.
I live in hope. I can see it now, a fridge, dart board, flat screen, lazy boy (that’s me) and a soft recliner…….
The great thing about a log cabin is the versatility of the construction.
You can use a log cabin for practically whatever you want. Looking for a studio, gym, utility room?
At Taylors Garden Buildings we have many log cabins in all shapes and sizes to cater for any requirement and if there is not a standard model then we can bespoke to whatever size you require.
