The most ideal and inexpensive way to extend your living space is to invest in an outdoor garden cabin. Making permanent renovations to your physical home can be incredibly costly and there are far cheaper options available to maximise your storage space in a more eco-friendly manner.
With summer finally here, now is the perfect time to spruce up the garden and make it looks its finest. Make use of the very unpredictable British weather throughout the coming months as 2012 is certainly living up to be an exciting year for the population: Royal Celebrations, European Football Championships and of course the upcoming events in London which go without saying. With the annual Glastonbury Festival taking a year off, why not hold your own mini festival or summer party in your garden. Without the infamous mud, rain and plethora of tents of course!
A log cabin would be ideal for this social occasion and it provides an eco-friendly approach to a home extension and very few people realise that an attractive looking and well maintained cabin can add a substantial addition to the cost of the property. Therefore, investing now will create a long term effect when you look to sell your home.
For those who run a home business investing in a log cabin would be a perfect venture. From as little as £2500 not only would it cut costs on renting office space, it would decrease the use of car fuel which is beneficial for both business and the environment. As the economic climate has plummeted, garden offices have become increasingly popular in which they can be wired to meet your electrical needs as well as maintain heat efficiently. Having your own working space is highly important however there is no correct way to use your cabin!
There are endless possibilities to making use of an outdoor living space. Families may want to develop a nursery and this would provide a stimulating room for a child to play as well as being safe and comfortable. For the younger generation, this type of structure could be suitable for housing a drum kit or music practice room where neighbours wouldn’t be disturbed.
You may want to consider having a relaxation room for yoga, a gym or even a games room with a bar and a pool table. Log cabins are a convenient option and require little planning, no legal permission and can be re-used. They come in a variety of styles and sizes and can also be made to your satisfaction.
