The Perfect extension to your Finnish BBQ Hut

The Finished BBQ Hut and extension shed

It’s sometimes not enough to have just the perfect BBQ Hut in your garden. Ridiculous you say, no I say…and also why are we arguing!

Winter is here with colder days and longer nights, this is perfect BBQ Hut weather. Christmas in the BBQ Hut.

There are many uses for extra space within a barbecue hut extension. Here is just a small list of what is possible:

1. Bar or gin palace

2. She shed or man cave

3. Additional seating area

4. Formal dining room

5. Storage, for gardening equipment or your BBQ hut equipment

6. Charcoal Storage

7. Guest sleeping accommodation

8. Playroom

But it all starts with a Finman BBQ Hut, the BBQ for all weathers!

Once you have that you can add an extension which is 1m, 2m or longer. The width of the extension shed will be fixed, as will be the height. But it can include a window, door in one side or both.

What will you use your barbecue hut extension for??

The Roof going on the main building, it can be red, green or black.

All that space just a few steps away

What could you do with this amount of space inside a BBQ Hut?

Designing Your Own Bespoke Garden Building

A guide to your tailor-made experience purchasing a cabin with Logspan…

Getting abroad might be tough this year but that doesn’t mean your family can’t spend quality, bonding time together in the comfort of your own back garden.

Here at Logspan, we have array of unique garden buildings that can be used as studios / crafting rooms / home offices / workshops as well as garden bars and sitting rooms. We have been in business for over 20 years and host a spanning show site with over 30 + unique garden buildings.

We do it all, from 28mm, single skinned, single glazed summer rooms /summerhouses to the top of the range, 115mm double skinned, fully insulated home offices / full time residential standard buildings. It’s this variety that is the key to our customer service. It gives the customer choice, and that’s the freedom all creatives deserve when making improvements their home and garden.

When embarking on projects like this, it’s important that you get it right first time, so we set out to make sure that all of our units can be altered on almost every level to fit in with your required specifications.  We provide a bespoke log cabin design service that puts you in the drivers seat and gives you the freedom to design the cabin from the ground up.

 

Custom Cabins

 

You can adjust everything from overall size, height, roof style, door and window size and placement, wall thickness, levels of insulation –. Find more detailed information on anything mentioned here using the custom cabin section of the website.

The first thing you would need to consider is size. How much space do you have a available vs how much are you willing to use. In these initial stages its hard envisage how the cabin is going to look like in the garden. Many people find them selves intimidated when measuring up, as they are concerned by how much space is going to be lost after building, but the advantages of size and space will often outweigh trepidation. We have never heard a customer say , “I wish I’d bought a smaller log cabin”!

Most of our customers then tend to focus on the thickness of the timber. Its probably the second biggest factor when shopping for log cabin because it has so much to do with the reason for getting one. You need to consider how much time you plan to spend in it, what are you going to use it for, what time of year are you going to use it most, is anyone going to be sleeping there? These are some of the first questions we would ask when speaking to an inquirer because, 28mm thick, single skinned walls just aren’t going to cut the mustard if you are planning on using it for over night rentals on sites like AirBnB or Booking.com.

Increasing the volume of timber is a great benefit as you are creating a structurally stronger product. The interlocking fitting of the wall corners is exceptionally tight and by increasing the overall thickness of each length, you are naturally insulating the cabin, which will keep in the heat and protect you from the elements.

 

wall thickness breakdown

 

For those that are building full time residential wooden structures, glamping cabins, home offices, outdoor classrooms , we recommend adding additional insulation, – first in the floor and roof, to regulate the temperature then looking at the walls.

 

Another reason people opt for a bespoke cabin is to have the freedom to choose where to feature their windows and doors.

 

“Double Glazed – with insulated glass units. Made from triple-layered glued-laminated timber. Windows come with an aluminium sill, to protect the frame from moisture. Equipped with high-quality “Roto” hinges. Silicon-rubber insulation is applied to protect against water leakage. The window trims can be either modern or feature decorative millwork (at the customer’s request).

“Single Glazed” – with regular 4mm thick glass (without insulated glass units). Produced with double-layered laminated wood. Window trims are modern. Equipped with high-quality “Roto” hinges. ”  – https://www.logspan.com/windows

Maybe you have a south facing garden and at a certain point of the day the sun shines perfectly in a particular spot, you’d want to have a full length windows waiting there to take full advantage of the weather when we get it.

Choose the windows that speak to you and place them wherever you need them most.

Happy working from home? Be relaxed in a Garden Office NOW!

 

gt 2

 

Over a month into ‘Lockdown’ and for those us ‘un-essential’ workers lucky enough to still be employed, we’ve had to up- sticks, and try and re-create our working environment here at home. It really shouldn’t be an issue. You get to relax in the comfort of your own space, no tedious daily commute, no uniforms, all you can eat buffet available 24/7 inside your kitchen, drinks on ice the minute the clock strikes 17.00. If you put it that way,  it sounds a bit like an all inclusive holiday.  Well let me tell you, its not all Piña coladas and sun tan lotion from where we are sitting.

Whether its the constant distractions from needy pets, the kids suddenly waking up early, wanting breakfast and asking to play outside (during a quarantine), or having to spend much more time with our significant others than we ever signed up for. We understand what you are going through. We feel your pain. We are in the same boat.

So that’s where we come in. We want to bring back some structure into your working life and the first part of doing that is getting out of the house. Now, we don’t advocate running away and leaving your family during a world-wide pandemic,  we are only saying that as this situation continues, its going to be harder and harder to establish a work / home life balance while sitting in the living room. So, having your own, private, peaceful work space, separate from the chaos would undoubtedly bring back some normality.

Here at Logspan we have array of unique garden buildings that can be used as studios / crafting rooms / home offices / workshops (as well as garden bars and sitting rooms), but don’t worry, if you don’t find something that feels just right, we will work together with you to design the perfect cabin to suit your garden. Everything from length, depth, the thickness of the timber, door and window size and placement, glazing, height, roof style, single skinned walls or double, floor or roof insulation – you can have complete control and freedom to create the working environment that you need.

If you like the idea of a unique garden office but don’t where to start, here are some popular examples from our website to help you get the ball rolling.

 

Insulated Office

Take your chance to escape from the stresses of the home life and retreat into your own, bespoke garden office. Working from home made easy – our fully insulated home offices have the practicability and attention to detail required to engross you into your responsibility, promoting a healthy work / life balance. Let your home become the therapeutic safe space you need, and draw a line in the sand between work and home.

This isn’t a traditional log cabin. The Lomond’s walls are double skinned – meaning that it is constructed using 88mm Rockwool insulation sandwiched between sets of 20mm  timber cladding, while the floor made with 20mm tongue and groove boards built on top of 50mm styrozone. Another benefit to this style is the modern sloping roof, which has a ridge height of 2.5m, falling within the height restrictions on permitted development, giving nosy neighbours nothing to moan about.

 

Aldeburgh

 

Work from home in comfort and style with the Aldeburgh range. This compact work hub provides a fully insulated, warm environment with plenty of natural light flooding in thanks to the full glass frontage. Constructed much like the Lomond expect these walls are home to THICK 115mm Rockwool giving you a cozy environment to get productive. This is the top of the range. The Aldeburgh comes in four different sizes but like all our cabins, it can be adjusted to suit your space.

 

T24

 

Probably our most popular large cabin that doesn’t require planning permission, this multi room log cabin was used as our main base of operations for many years and was more than sufficient for a team of 4 office workers. This should give you an idea of the room available in the T24 Ascot. Open plan living area big enough to host a large spanning desk, ample storage space for personal and business files, books, your own personal W/C ( which can be adjusted to make room for a shower upon request), potential small kitchen area to boot.

Now, if these most recent times have taught us anything, you don’t have to have multiple employees all working from the same location,  business as we know it changes as the weeks and months go by, this could be your own self haven – a private, all encompassing work space. Once you start your day, you don’t have to leave until you are finished. No distractions, no interruptions, no trips to main bathroom / kitchen. You have everything you need at hand.

Open plan living area big enough to host a large spanning desk, ample storage space for personal and business files, books, your own personal W/C ( which can be adjusted to make room for a shower upon request), potential small kitchen area to boot.

The T24 is also one of the best options for those looking to get into glamping / rentals. With all the amenities covered, you have the potential to see FAST return on your investment, as you could market this cabin towards family’s of 4 as well as couples.

Reviews;

 

5* service and quality – highly recommend!

After visiting a friend who had bought and moved into a Logspan cabin, I purchased a modified T24 cabin in late 2019 which now sits in our back garden on the Isle of Skye as a guest suite for visiting friends and family, and as a holiday rental on AirBnB. I was pretty indecisive when I first contacted the Logspan team but Conor was incredibly patient with me, talked me through the various options and technical requirements in detail (planning permission, ground prep etc.), re-jigged the design of a cabin to suit my needs and budget, and was just an all-round superstar! When it came to construction, a team of three led by Chris took less than three days to build the cabin. They were friendly, very professional, finished the build on time and didn’t complain once despite having to contend with some of the worst weather we’d had all year! They also were very patient with me and my questions, taking the time to talk me through each stage of the build, and left the site and cabin spotlessly clean and tidy when they’d finished. They worked alongside a local plumber and electrician who also commented on how nice and professional the guys were.
I would highly recommend Logspan, and couldn’t be happier with my cabin 🙂 Thank you Conor and team!

Everyone who visits us admires it.

Logspan provide a great, hassle-free service at a very reasonable cost. We have been absolutely delighted with our cabin.

With so many uncertainty’s out there at the moment, none of us are really sure what life is going to look like 6 months from now, how will social distancing impact the future of the work force, non essential office workers, small business, online workers are hardly going to be the first wave brought back to the work force. So let us take the initiative, set you and your business up for future.

Log Cabin – Focus on the Lilie Corner Panel House

Log Cabin
The Lilie range of panel houses is an elegant range if corner log cabins. As suggested the log cabin is constructed with prefabricated full height panels, which depending on the size of the building can differ in width. So this is a Flat Pack Cabin, an ingenious that likens this to an IKEA purchase, only simpler!
The panels are 45mm in width so are able to handle the weather extremes of the UK. Inside the Lilie its Summer, whatever the weather is outside.
Log Cabin Panel House
The styling of this cabin is really nice as it provides you with the maximum space inside along with an overhang at the front to give the cabin a little protection. Without the interlocking logs, the Lilie has a cleaner finish, allowing it to fit into a smaller garden.
Log Cabin Panel House
There is a choice of 10 different sizes along with many different window positions, all up to you depending on the location of the cabin and what you want to use it for!

Some have used the larger sizes of this cabin as an outdoor classroom but the options are endless for this shape of the cabin.

Log Cabin Focus – Ascot Chalet Log Cabin (T24 XL)

Today we will focus on the Ascot XL Log Cabin (6.5m x 7.0m), although it is really the Ascot Log Cabin on steroids. Both have the Swiss cottage feel from the from, with the same low roof, but the XL has an additional two bedrooms at the back of the chalet.

Log Cabin

The wall construction can be in 45mm or 60mm double tongue & groove or in 95mm triple tongue & groove logs. As is usual the logs are Northern Spruce. The Thicker log gives more natural insulation, therefore cost less for heating.

Log CabinThere is a gallery style kitchen area, large enough for two people to prepare a feast. A window to the side allows natural light to illuminate the worktops and a breakfast bar makes for an excellent kitchen pass.

Log CabinThis Log Cabin has a shower room, with window. Although the  eaves in this log cabin from the outside seem low there is plenty room inside for a corner shower cubital.

Then there are the two double sized bedrooms at the back of the lodge. Both can be the same size or you can increase the size of one has is the case here. Either way you have the makings of a great family weekend house.

Log Cabin Log Cabin

What happens if you don’t want a weekend house?

Well in that case you have the makings of a great office, or shop, or garden room with both man cave and she shed areas!

Still not convinced, well the high quality of the logs (with little or no finger joints) and only using the best of the timber makes this building premium. Yes, you’ll only get the best from us. So you can buy with confidence. The German fittings are the same standard as most of our chalets with double glazing, tilt & turn, windows throughout.

Like all our LOG cabins, these can be fully customised to whatever ideas you have so when investing a substantial amount of money, it is important that you get it right first time. All cabins come with a treated base frame so this protects the bottom of the cabin but the rest of the timber MUST be treated as soon as possible. As wood is natural material; it expands, moves and contracts all the time so it is important that the timber is treated properly as soon as possible. It is worth treating inside cabins as well before you fit it out.
