Alternative ways to use a garden log cabin
Having a garden log cabin is like having an extra room in your house. You might be wondering what you can do with all this space, or indeed if you need a log cabin for sale. There are actually plenty of ways to use timber buildings; which means that they are suitable for everybody! In this blog post, we’ll look at some examples.
More and more people are working from home. This is the ideal solution for those who don’t have a dedicated in-house workspace, and want to feel at home while also managing to switch from home mode to work mode! A timber building office is ideal; getting into the garden somewhat mimics a commute, yet you will still be very close to the house to enjoy all the perks of working from home in your own log cabin.
If you have a large garden and often have people over for dinner and drinks, a garden bar is perfect! You don’t need too much furnishing for this idea; just a bar, and possibly a fridge. If you don’t have a fridge, you could use the space to store non-perishable drinks and just bring over ice whenever the bar is in use.
Prefer to work up a sweat? It’s easy to install a gym in your timber cabin, and you don’t need any fancy equipment! Just grab an exercise mat and weights or a resistance band to begin with. You might want to eventually add a treadmill or an exercise bike, but these certainly aren’t essential.
If you are new to working out, you may find it beneficial to start with some exercise videos. This means that you’ll need a WiFi connection in your log cabin; you might be able to connect to your house WiFi or use data on your phone.
If the gym’s not really your thing, but you like a good stretch, you could also use the same principles to make a gym log cabin into a yoga studio.
For something a bit more chilled, how about a games room? If your cabin is big enough, you could install a football, table tennis, or snooker table; if you don’t have the room, you can get tabletop games to put on a table. Dartboards are easy to acquire and inexpensive to set up, and you can also add a set of shelves stuffed with board games, that’s why many people in the UK now desire their own games room log cabin.
