It’s likely that some time during your life you’ve dreamed of a holiday in a secluded cabin in the woods, with a roaring fire, hot cocoa, and your partner to keep you company. The percentage of people who are able to turn that dream into a reality is substantially less than those who fantasize about it.
All is not lost! You can still have your cabin escape; what’s even better is that it won’t cost you a fortune in plane tickets, visas and spending money. These days there are companies all over the country that supply log cabins to those wanting to create a space in which to relax and unwind.
What’s wonderful about these kinds of sheds is that they can be custom made to your client-specific requirements. If you don’t have a large area available, don’t fret, some suppliers have corner units available, allowing you to utilise space optimally.
Honeymoon ambitions aside, you can turn your log cabin into anything you like – a yoga studio, a hobby space, or a home spa studio. Let your imagination set off on a journey. Imagine the completed project in your mind’s eye. Exciting isn’t it?
One piece of advice we can offer is: incorporate the structure into your property. Even though it is separate from the house, it is still an extension of your home and your personality. One way to achieve such effortless assimilation is to plant some of the same flowers you have in your garden around your outbuilding.
There are many advantages to having a log structure on your property:
They are made from sustainable materials. With ‘sustainability’ being a buzzword currently, owning a log home will leave you feeling like you are making a contribution to the longevity of the planet. Many manufacturers of log cabins use timber that has suffered some form of natural death; this could be as a result of fire or insect damage.
You can expand them as your requirements change and your budget allows. Being able to add rooms to your outbuilding will not only increase the size of your escape space, but will also increase the value of your property as a whole. Log shed structures are also substantially more cost-effective than their brick counterparts.
Maintenance of a wooden structure is also less expensive than other building materials. The company that supplied your log cabin will not only have advisors on hand to assist with any questions you may have regarding the upkeep of your building; they will in all likelihood stock the items, such as sealants, you will need to keep your space at its best.
One of the most enjoyable aspects of having a private space is that you can decorate it as you wish. There is no need to follow any single design trend because your cabin is a space to mix and match different facets of your identity.
Consider your purchase to be an investment, because, in essence, that is what it is. Take care of it as you do the rest of your property and you will be rewarded with much downtime to destress and recharge your batteries.
