Log Cabin Maintenance
It is important to take care of your log cabin to ensure longevity. One of the most effective ways to preserve contemporary log cabins is to handle your log cabin regularly. These may involve oil-based processing, water-based treatments, solve and spirit-based treatments, or pressure treatment.
Every form of treatment has its own advantages and inconveniences. For example, treatments based on oil only need to be replenished every five years. It can sound relaxed. Oil-based therapy is, however, one of the least effective methods of treatment.
Furthermore, solvent and spirit-based therapies are among the most common treatment approaches and are re-touched only every three years. Pressure treatment, on the other hand, may go deeper into precut wood. This means that the environment is likely to be better than the other approaches.
See our ultimate guide for specifics of the purchase process, log cabin maintenance, use of the log cabin and the best log thickness, for example 19 mm logs, 28 mm logs or 44 mm logs. See our process. And you learn facts such as that 44 mm log booths are made with double tongue, meaning 57% thicker than the 28 mm alternative.
Log Cabin Thickness
You have several log thicknesses at your fingertips. These are 19 mm, 28 mm, 35 mm, 44 m and 70 mm. Yet it can be difficult to find the correct thickness for you. Below are some useful short tips to help you make a decision.
19 mm uses a sturdy and robust interlocking structure, although this thickness is not as effective as thick logs for weather protection of the log cabin. 19 mm is therefore ideally suited to log cabins in summerhouses that are used in warmer months. A thickness of 28 mm is similar to 19 mm but is a high quality summerhouse choice. A log thickness of 35 mm is suitable for outdoor constructions in Winter, Spring and Summer.
In comparison, as opposed to logs with a smaller thickness, 44 mm logs are built in a double tongue. This allows the log cabins to be better suited for harsh weather conditions. We suggest that double glazing be used in log cabins all year round because it provides better insulation. Nonetheless, 70 mm is the best option for the garden building built with the four seasons in mind. The walls use extra slurry that makes the building impressively solid compared to thinner wall thicknesses.
Stylish Log Cabins
There are many ways to transform a log cabin into something amazing. Many are traditional, but there’s a way you surprise and ignite the imagination.
One example of a typical log cabin is that it is used as a laboratory. A spot where all your plumbing, pencils and paints are kept. A craft space can be the ideal solution if there is a space that can get messy without it. Regardless of whether you enjoy drawing or painting, a log cabin will accommodate a large flat table or even floor space for artistic use. So if you enjoy crafts and still have a lot of fabrics to use, why not put shelves and create the ultimate organization in your log booth. The job you are most proud of can even be put on the walls for a spark of furniture.
Alternatively, why not turn your garden cabin into a home cinema. A few blackout blinds to block the light, a TV or screen with surround sound, and a few comfortable seats with cozy blankets are the necessary elements to create a great home theater. Invest in a small refrigerator for the ultimate experience to tap cool candy, a popcorn machine for a tasty snack, and some dimmer LED lights to make you feel very good in a world of your own. And don’t forget to store all your DVDs and videos, of course.
At the other hand, if your idea of a good time is not relaxing, turn your log cabin into a home fitness space. A log cabin home fitness center can be very cost-effective. This is because you don’t have to pay for the awful gymnasium, the locker when you get there or have to spend money on travel. A home fitness center will also allow you the versatility to exercise, if you like, rather than just opening the gym. Make sure room is taken into account when building a home log cabin gym. Note how heavy the fitness equipment you are purchasing is, as it will decide what size log cabin you need. Just make sure that you intend to bring the equipment into the log cabin, as you need not only space for the equipment, but also space to use it.
In addition, if you want to house friends and family but you are limited in space, converting your log cabin into an extra bedroom is a great way. Much like other examples of log cabins, this is an easy way to make space without the hassle of investing in an extension of your house. In a few quick steps you can make the outdoor building a lovely escape to which your family and friends can escape. A spare log cabin space is the ideal place to live with friends. It will give you the protection you need to be relaxed when you are still at home. Additionally, it might be an excellent addition to a teenager’s bedroom. It gives them their own room and allows them a little extra independence.
In comparison, an outdoor garden cabin is another perfect way to transform into a workshop or a games room. We hope you understand that there is no good feeling more than realizing how enjoyable and you don’t have to hear your children or other half. For example, if you’re into your music, a logbox may be the perfect place to move the noise into where you don’t have to hear it. Fill it with musical instruments like guitars, ukuleles and drums, and maybe even invest in proofing your sound, so that your neighbors do not have to hear it either. Or if you want a children’s room for games or even a log cabin for yourself, it might be the ideal separation between work and home.
Garden Log Cabin
While thinking about the interior of a log cabin can be an exciting experience, it is important to take into account the amount of room you have to put a garden building first. Ensure that both height and width reflect your garden area effectively to minimize the danger of being frustrated in order to find out that you’ve purchased the wrong amount. Your garden’s size is not the only significant aspect.
The size of the outdoor building in which you are interested should be in mind throughout the entire process. This is because the size of the log cabin can influence what it contains. For example, a large, spacious log cabin can accommodate bigger furniture and more. A small log cabin is limited to what it can accommodate. Moreover, if you want to use it during the day, it is necessary not to cover the windows of your log booth entirely, because it blocks the light and may cause you to not see clearly. Once you have purchased a log cabin, we recommend you decide how to decorate the interior. In certain situations, this can become an costly affair easily.
Log Cabin Playhouses
The log cabins can be purchased in the form of a playhouse, not just for adults. This may also be the perfect place for your children to indulge their imagination and creativity. A cabin playhouse will provide plenty of space for all sorts of play, whether it’s a soldier, astronaut, princess or the next Avenger.
Our playhouses are built with beautifully crafted doors with typical cottage windows, shutters and boxes for flowering. In addition, a playhouse in a log cabin could easily establish the same classical charm in more conventional playhouses, like a wendy house.
Additionally, some of our playhouses are available on two floors. This ensures that children have the ability to feel that they own their own homes. With a raised platform for a bed, add a few comfortable chairs to a supposed kitchen, maybe even true snacks, and maybe you may want to spend more time here than in the actual home.
You may also introduce them to a new love of gardening by enabling them to have real plants in the shutter boxes outside the playhouse. Only give them the duty to water and care for their plants and they will enable them to care for the rest of the garden.
Log Cabin Sheds
In addition, log cabins can be used as storage sheds like wooden sheds. For example, as bicycle sheds and a wooden garage. In comparison to single doors, double doors make it easy to handle objects, whether it’s your mower, bicycle, garden tools or even mobility scooters. Suitable for those who constantly want to use their outdoor pieces. You can also cover your products best for you with either single or double glazing. The log cabin is therefore a very comfortable outdoor dwelling.
Our log cabin sheds are constructed of high quality softwood materials. This guarantees strong structural integrity and consistent longevity. The cottages are available in alpine, apex, pent and traditional designs that suit all gardens and all tastes. Designed to last, any things you would like to store in the log cabin shed are guaranteed to be free from motorcycles, paddle mowers and outdoor toys.
As with conventional sheds, log cabin sheds are also suitable for other uses, such as a pub, a workshop or a man’s cave.
Small Log Cabins
We understand that many of you are confined to the garden you have, particularly the garden you can afford to use with a garden building. We sell small outdoor buildings for that purpose. You too will have your own additional space to escape, built with the same care and precision as our larger cabins. Although tiny, the cabin can still be turned into a cozy lounge, where you can curl up and read a book, play video and music, or simply have a nap. Or, they can be an excellent way to add an additional storage room to your house. Whether it’s gardening equipment, outdoor toys, or simply things, a small log cabin will provide you with plenty of room to suit your needs.
However, it is necessary to know about any design regulations which may relate to your wood garden building before buying stylish log cabins. This is because we do not want you to feel the thrill of having your own log cabin down then.
Several planning regulatory concerns that may concern you include the prospect of expanding your log cabin beyond your home. Likewise, if you have a log cabin within two meters from the boundary, it is necessary to ensure that the highest eaves are not more than 2.5 m with a ridge height of 4 m. This does not apply, however, if you opt for a pent log cabin with a flat roof. Because there are no eaves in the outdoor house, you can get away at a maximum height of 2.5 meters.
Such words can vary, however, depending on where you are, the type of accommodation you stay in and your garden style. We therefore suggest that you read our blogs that will teach you everything you should learn before buying a log booth.
All aspects of typical log booths, including roof and floor, can be transformed in several ways. If it’s a modern log cabin, a log cabin, a log cabin or even corner log cabins.
One of the most common uses for an outdoor log cabin building is to make it a home garden office. This is like a garden cabin can be a separate space to differentiate between work and home. Perfect for self-employed people or small business owners, you can minimize travel costs by building a log cabin in your garden and you are not expected to rent office space. An outdoor log cabin building may be the perfect location for a house garden office because it features wide windows that provide ample light for your safe mind. In addition, they can be painted in several ways and are likely to last for a long time. Determining the balance between work and home life was never simpler for someone working with a garden home office from home. It ensures that you physically have to exit one building to reach another from work to home. To help you pick the best log cabin home office, read our guide
