Thanks to this Guest Post I am dreaming of log cabins, summerhouses and escaping to a hideaway in the garden. A girl can dream eh?
While it would be fantastic to be able to enjoy our gardens all year round, the truth is that for most of us, for several months of the year, all we can do is look out through the window at the cold and rain. This is why wooden garden buildings are such a great idea. You can be in your garden whenever you like, sheltered from the elements, complete with electricity. Here are five of the best uses for a garden building:
Exercise equipment can be bulky, and takes up a lot of space in your home. An outdoor workout cabin could be exactly what you need; free of distractions and with your own garden to admire. You don’t necessarily need a large space to work out in either.
As already mentioned, there’s nothing better than enjoying the summer sun in your garden, though it is nice to have some shade. Choose a wooden hut with plenty of windows, and you’ll have a beautiful place to sit and relax.
If you’re a keen gardener, then you’ll want to have somewhere to pot your plants, and store your equipment. Sheds are OK for storage, but they are too dark to work in effectively, and are generally unsuitable to fit with electricity. A cabin is great, especially in winter.
If you’ve got the room, then having a swimming pool, hot tub or sauna in your garden is the ultimate luxury. It’s too cold to swim outdoors for most of the year, but in a garden building, you’re sheltered and warm. Tunstall Garden Buildings can make bespoke installations if you’re looking for something like this.
If you need a home office, then a wooden cabin is one of the very best solutions you’ve got. There’s nothing like being able to work in peace, with the view over your own garden. You can have electricity, a phone line and the internet all fitted so that everything you need is there.
There are lots of different things that you can do with a garden building, and you don’t even need a huge amount of space to have one. You can get very small ones, just big enough for a single person to be able to enjoy.
What would you do with a log cabin in your own back garden?
