You hardly need to be an economic expert to know that currently for most people money is tight. Just read any newspaper or watch any news channel will tell you that. One innovative way of getting the most out of your property, and increasing your living space is by utilising garden sheds. Gone are the days when a shed was merely used for storing your tools and garden furniture throughout the winter months. More and more people are investing high quality garden sheds as an alternative to expensive home extensions, and with much less red tape. If you need extra space, or even an extra room, consider these five uses for a garden log cabin.
An increasing number of people are working from home these days. By setting up your home office in the garden, you can ensure that you will be distraction-free and able to focus solely on the business at hand. Simply set up a broadband connection, install your computer, printer, fax and phone and you’ll have a home office that beats any brick and mortar cubicle. This will give you all the benefits of both working at home, and working in an office and will be much more commuter friendly.
Budding artists often find that they need a calm, serene space to get their creative juices flowing. An art studio in your very own garden provides just that. By building a space dedicated to your art, you will have a room that is full of inspiration and doesn’t need to be packed up at the completion of your project. If you suddenly get the urge to create at 3am in the morning, then you can walk down to your own personal studio and do your thing without disturbing anyone.
As well as art, there are a number of other hobbies that can prove to be too messy for the home, such as woodwork. A garden workshop allows your creative juices to flow freely. A log cabin workshop will allow you to keep your tools organised; your projects out in the open and, by installing a strong lock on the door, ensure that your children are kept safe from sharp blades and instruments.
If you have an ever expanding family, then it’s likely you will need more space. Not everybody can afford, or wants the hassle of moving home and just ‘make do’ with what they have. Small homes often force parents to keep game consoles in the living area and pile toys in their children’s room. With a garden playroom, all of your children’s toys and consoles can be placed in a central area, giving your child a safe place to spend the day.
Log cabins in the garden make excellent places in which to set up your musical equipment. Add comfy seating, proper lighting and beautiful art work to the walls and you’ll feel like you’re going to the theatre each time you step out to the garden to watch a film. Add shelving for your favourite books and you’ll have a relaxing atmosphere in which to unwind after a long day at the office. If you son or daughter thinks they are the next Frank Sinatra or Lady Gaga, be setting up their own music room you will be able to enjoy the peace and tranquillity of your own home.
The uses for garden log cabins are not limited to these five. A garden cabin can be utilized as almost any room that you’ve always wished you had. From saunas to small guest apartments, garden log cabins can be useful in adding useful space to your home.
