The BBQ Hut – Featured in the Daily Mail

A dazzling den for kids’ parties and sleepovers

Lee Wilson, 38, lives in Linlithgow, West Lothian, with husband, Jim, 39, a farmer, and children Abbie, 11, Claire, nine, and twins Robert and Thomas, seven.

I suspect that friends thought we had lost our minds when we bought our £4,500 hut complete with charcoal barbecue. After all, neither of us had barbecued as much as a sausage our entire lives. But when we saw our 11-metre square hexagonal hut at the Royal Highland Show near Edinburgh last summer, we instantly saw the potential.

It’s a wonderful space for us to hang out as a family and enjoy eating outdoors. And, yes, I have been very slowly learning how to barbecue although Jim is yet to even try!

He’s a typical old-fashioned farmer and doesn’t think cooking — even on an outdoor grill — is for him.Lee Wilson, 38, lives in Linlithgow, West Lothian, with children Abbie, 11, Claire, nine, and twins Robert and Thomas, seven (pictured) and husband Jim

I insisted on getting an extractor fan which means all the fumes escape, but it also halves the normal 30-40 minutes it takes for the charcoal to heat, ready to cook. That’s essential with four hungry children to feed.

But the biggest attraction for us is as a space for the kids to escape with their friends — particularly as they grow older.

We held Abbie’s 11th birthday party there last month. It was snowing outside but we toasted marshmallows, played games and had an impromptu karaoke.

My kids’ friends all tell them how lucky they are, and I know we’ll be having back-to-back parties and sleepovers in the hut all summer.

The shingle-roofed pod — which we simply call The Hut — can sleep five (the benches transform into two double beds and a single). We ordered it from Logspan in Dumbartonshire and it arrived on the worst day of the year just before Christmas.

It took the team six hours to erect in torrential rain, and we linked it up to the electricity supply in the house.

As soon as they left, we all piled in, snuggled up under the sheepskin rugs on the benches and drank hot chocolate!Ms Wilson said: 'The shingle-roofed pod — which we simply call The Hut — can sleep five (the benches transform into two double beds and a single)'

4 Features To Consider When Designing Your Bespoke Log Cabin

Having a bespoke log cabin means you can create the outdoor space of your dreams. Designing a log cabin that perfectly suits your lifestyle is an extremely exciting opportunity. However, if you don’t have experience with log cabin design, you might feel lost or overwhelmed. With so many customisable options and features, it can be hard to know what you require. In this blog post, we’re outlining five features you should consider before designing your log cabin.

Windows for your Bespoke Log Cabin

Windows are a central feature of your log cabin. Most people design their cabin in spring or summer when the weather is better and the days are lighter. However, remember that the weather won’t stay wonderful all year round. If you want to use your log cabin in the colder months, you’ll want windows with good light exposure and insulating properties. Smaller windows might be okay during the sunny seasons, but when winter hits, you’ll need as much natural light in your log cabin as possible. Make sure to account for all seasons when you choose the size and glazing of your windows.

Shutters

Not only do shutters enhance the exterior appearance of your log cabin, but they have practical features too. If you’re using this space as a classroom or home office, shutters can stop direct sunlight from beaming in and can eliminate outside distractions. In addition to this, if you’re keeping valuable items inside your log cabin, having shutters provides extra privacy and protection.

Roofing

A sturdy log cabin needs a high-quality roof. Metal profile roof and Bitumen roof covering are the two most popular waterproof roof coverings; but you can also choose between slate, clay tiles or turf . If you’re unfamiliar with these materials and the difference between them, speak to your log cabin builder for advice on roofing regarding your location and lifestyle. However, you can make your own decision on roofing and what you believe will suit your log cabin the best.

Size of your Bespoke Log Cabin

One of the most beneficial aspects of designing your log cabin is you can decide how big it is. If you enjoy having a large garden but want a warm seating area for the cold winter months, a small log cabin will suit you. Whereas, if you’re planning to use your cabin for home-schooling, you’ll want a large log cabin with more space for storage and furniture. Consider how you will use your log cabin and how often you use your garden before deciding the size of your bespoke log cabin.

Designing and building a bespoke log cabin means you can create the outdoor space you’ve always dreamed of having. Before you can begin building, you need to decide on the key features of your cabin. Windows, shutters, roofing and size are four crucial elements that dictate the efficiency as well as the appearance of your log cabin. As log cabin experts, we recommend prioritising these elements at the beginning of the design process. Decide the style and size of your windows, if you’re going to have shutters, your roofing materials and the overall size of your log cabin first.

If you require assistance making these choices or with any part of your bespoke log cabin development process, talk to the experts at Logspan.

3 reasons glamping should be your next trip away

When it comes to booking a family holiday, there are always disagreements. The kids want another trip to Disneyland, dad wants to go skiing, and mum wants nothing more than to lie on the beach reading a good book. This year, don’t let arguments take the excitement away from your upcoming trip. Instead, organise a glamping holiday. Here are three reasons glamping is the ideal family holiday.

Reconnect with nature

The most significant benefit of glamping is the opportunity to reconnect with nature. Rather than getting swept away with snapping and sharing pictures of your holiday cocktails, you can live in the moment.

Spending time in the great outdoors has several physical and mental benefits. Being in nature is scientifically proven to…

  • Improve mood
  • Reduce stress
  • Boost your confidence and self-esteem
  • Encourages you to be more active
  • Improve physical health
  • Help you feel more relaxed

Not only will a holiday in nature benefit you, but it can help improve family relations. Rather than spending the week cooped up in a hotel room that’s too small for you all, enjoy having space for the children and parents with two separate glamping tents.

Keep all the luxuries of your normal holiday

A glamping holiday in the outdoors doesn’t mean you have to trade in your luxuries. Glamping allows you to enjoy your holiday indulgences whilst simultaneously enjoying nature’s gifts— it’s the best of both worlds! Enjoy wifi, hot showers, comfortable beds and other home comforts while you glamp.

Unlike camping, you don’t have to endure sleepless nights and scorching mornings under a flimsy polyester tent. Glamping has all the qualities of a top hotel combined with refreshing natural landscapes.

Stay Covid Safe while Glamping

Covid now plays a role in every decision we make. And when it comes to travelling, we need to consider the risks we’re taking. It’s natural to want to get away after the year we’ve endured. However, it’s also normal to still be cautious about Covid-safety. Glamping is the perfect Covid secure holiday. Rather than sitting on a stuffy aeroplane with hundreds of strangers for hours, you can travel safely with your family in your car. And instead of staying in a busy hotel with shared facilities, you can enjoy a personal glamping tent. Being in nature for the duration of your holiday means you’re constantly exposed to fresh air and able to distance yourself from others enjoying the same surroundings.

If you want to make your holiday even more Covid-secure, why not enjoy glamping at home? Add a sleeper cabin to your back garden and spend a few nights under the stars away from the busyness of the house.

Glamping is the ideal stress-free holiday. Forget hours of organising and family disagreements, glamping holidays are guaranteed to bring your family closer and give you the experience of a lifetime.

Log Cabin Winter Office Essentials

There’s nothing worse than sitting at the office freezing. Numb fingertips and chattering teeth aren’t conducive to a productive workspace, nor is it an enjoyable experience. When you’re working, you want your focus to be on the task at hand, not when you can make another cup of tea or if working from the sofa would have been a better idea.

Working from home is a privilege. Rather than enduring the treacherous journey to work in the cold, you can stay comfortable in your outdoor log cabin office. Just a few short steps from your home comforts, the commute is a breeze! But that doesn’t stop the winter chills from creeping in. To help you stay cosy and focused in your log cabin home office, we’ve put together a list of winter garden office essentials. Make sure you’ve got these in your log cabin before heading out into the garden for your day at work.

Electric

The number one thing your log cabin needs to make it a functional winter office is electricity. Not only do you need electricity for your winter essentials, but it’s more than likely you need it to complete your work too. An extension lead into the kitchen might have worked for a few glorious months of summer, but it’s not practical or realistic during the rainy and snowy months. When you have your log cabin installed, make sure to add electricity. If you’ve got an existing log cabin without electricity, don’t worry. A trained electrician will be able to install a running electricity supply for a small fee.

Heating

Similarly, if you don’t have heating in your log cabin office, you can hire a trained professional to instal heating. Some might decide not to instal heating and use a portable electric heater to warm their office. Gas-powered heating is a more long-term solution. However, it’s up to you how you choose to heat your log cabin. As long as it’s warm enough, you’ll be able to get on with your work!

Coffee machine/Kettle

Whether we’re at home or in the office, a hot beverage is the number one thing we crave when we’re cold. Instead of dashing to the kitchen every time your inevitable thirst for a warm drink hits, have a coffee machine or kettle in the office. Running between the main house and your log cabin can disrupt workflow. Eliminate potential distractions and have your beverage of choice readily available in your outside office. After all, there’s nothing like a cup of hot coffee on a cold morning!

Scarf and Slippers

No matter how powerful our heating supply is, those pesky chills can still creep in. Usually, our necks and ankles are the first to feel a chill in the air. Avoid unwanted shivers and make sure you always have a scarf and comfy pair of slippers around.

As the nights get longer and darkness eclipses most of the day, sitting in the office feels like the last thing we want to do. Having a home office makes working in the winter easier. With these three essentials, you’ll find working in your log cabin is a comfortable and enjoyable experience.
