We get asked a lot – What are the Uses for Log Cabins ?
On many occasions clients will send pictures of their their finished log cabins and the uses for log cabins are so different.
Normally following the sale we very rarely receive photos from anyone, so it is fascinating to see what uses our log cabins are put to.
Below, you can see a small range of things customers have used their log cabins for:
ASMUND LOG CABIN SUMMER HOUSE
GUDRUN LOG CABIN – SUMMER LIVING
HEINO LOG CABIN – BEACH HOUSE
LOG CABIN – POOL ROOM
NOTTINGHAM LOG CABIN – MUSIC STUDIO
As you can see from the photos above, there are many uses for log cabins, let your imagination run wild!
Log cabins are really fantastic garden buildings, they can virtually be used for anything you can imagine.
When advising customers I normally advise the following:
19mm Thick Logs
This is a garden shed, ideal for storage and much better than all garden sheds you can buy with the traditional panel style construction.
28mm Thick Logs
Great garden buildings perfect for a summer house or occasional use. With some modifications, they are perfect for all year-round use.
34 – 44mm Thick Logs
This is where we start to get more thermal insulation and the cabin is more functional throughout the seasons.
There is always a relation between heat and log thickness. This range offers an excellent balance between heating costs and the cost of the log cabin. You will however still need to add some form of insulation to the roof and floor.
58mm Thick Logs
These are a great entry level for larger garden buildings. They are VERY sturdy buildings with a high thermal capacity.
If I was picking a garden building with the purpose of all year round use this would be my prefered range. You would still need to add some form of insulation to the floor and roof for that extra winter comfort and maybe even a nice wood fire.
Above 70mm Log Thickness
The ultimate size for permanent of full time use accommodation.
A serious log cabin for all living purposes. The thermal capabilities are fantastic and the feeling of living in one of these wood homes is second to none.
PLEASE, PLEASE, PRETTY PLEASE
Send us some photos of your log cabin.
It will be gratefully appreciated.
