What’s The Right Size Log Cabin For My Garden?

One of the things we love about our job as garden cabin, BBQ hut, and gazebo builders is getting to see your beautiful gardens. Log cabins are an asset to any outdoor space. Every garden we see is overflowing with personality. It’s the uniqueness of your spaces that encourages us to create buildings packed with character. We understand that every garden has its own style, space and purpose, so our cabins reflect this.

Picking the size of your log cabin is an important decision. To help ensure you make the right choice, we’re sharing five things to think about before deciding on the size of your log cabin.

How big is your garden?

The first thing you need to establish is how big your garden is. After all, there’s no point in purchasing a log cabin that won’t fit! Before you reach out to us or your cabin builders, measure the length and width of your garden. If you know where your future garden cabin will go, measure this area too.

How much excess space do you want outside your log cabin?

Most people want a garden cabin as a secret hideaway or practical storage space at the end of their garden. We recommend picking a building that still allows you garden space.

You don’t want a cabin that takes over the garden. But you also don’t want to pick a model that’s too small for your needs. You need to strike a balance between what you need your cabin for and how much outdoor space you want.

What will you use your log cabin for?

When you consider what you need your cabin for, debate whether this activity requires a certain amount of space. For example, if you’re fixing old bikes, you’ll need a workbench, tool storage, and room for the bikes. If you’re using your cabin to read and relax, you don’t need to be as strict about space.

How many people will occupy this space?

If you’re using your garden cabin as a home office or classroom, you might need to consider additional people. Will your home office need space for two desks? Will you and your children comfortably fit in your cabin with all the necessary apparatus required for teaching?

Personal preference

It’s your log cabin you’re buying. Whether you’re investing for practicality or style, it’s up to you how big your cabin is. Some people prefer petite, cute cabins that get lost in the garden landscape. Other homeowners want a show-stopping modern structure that they can admire from inside their homes. Why not browse our website and see which style of garden cabin resonates with you? We’re certain something will catch your eye.

We offer a bespoke cabin service, so we can make a cabin that’s perfect for you. Why not let us know the dimensions of your space, and we’ll create the log cabin you’ve been dreaming of?!Click here to browse our full range of log cabins.

A Double Versus Single Garage: What’s The Best Choice For My Property?

It’s finally time to add a garage to your property. You’re tired of trying to find a parking space after work, the bikes and scooters littering the hallway are bothering you, and you crave extra space for the less desirable must-haves that come with owning a home. But, like all home investments, garages aren’t one size fits all. And deciding on the correct size garage for your home isn’t easy. Double or Single?

The first important decision you need to make is whether you need a double or a single garage. Those with less space will likely be limited to a single garage. But, if you have the room, you might have to decide what means more to you, having more space or storage? We’re outlining everything you need to consider in the double versus single garage debate.

How many vehicles do you have?

The primary use for a garage is to home your vehicles. If you’re building a garage with the sole purpose of getting your car off the road, a single garage is adequate for your needs. However, if you have several cars or you’re likely to have more vehicles in the future, a double garage provides more space.

Those who need the storage of a garage but enjoy the aesthetic of a log cabin will love The Worcester.  Its roof purlins and Northern spruce make this building eye-catching and attractive while simultaneously providing all the space you could possibly need.

Will you use your garage for other activities?

If you want a garage for engaging with activities inside, but away from the comfort of the home, a double garage could suit you best. For example, you might need somewhere safe to store the car and a practical spot to put your running machine. Alternatively, if your garage will only serve as a space for activities (gyming, fixing up bikes, building etc) a single garage makes an ideal workshop space.

How much time do you spend in your outdoor space?

One key thing to consider that many buyers overlook is how much time you spend in your outside space. If you love spending summers laying on the grass and playing games on the patio, it’s unlikely you want to lose this space. A double garage takes a significant amount of room, whereas a single garage can provide you with practical space and still give your room for fun.

Those who live in cold climates might prefer a double garage because they never have the opportunity to enjoy the outside for extended periods of time. Before buying your garage, think about the relationship you have with your outdoor space.

What’s your budget?

The larger size and more materials mean double garages cost more than single. If you’re keen to have a garage but don’t have a big budget, a single garage will be more appropriate. The Chester Garage costs just £4,820.00 and is a marvellous addition to your home and lifestyle.

Garages are safe spaces to keep your cars, a room for activities you love, and an asset to the exterior of your home. Plus, having a garage can drastically increase your property’s value! But, before you pick a garage, you need to decide whether you’re better suited to a single or double. If you’re still struggling to choose, you can talk with a member of the Logspan team. We’re always happy to help.

Make The Most Out Of Your Outdoor Space This Summer With A Log Cabin

After a long hard winter, you can’t wait for summer to arrive. But, you feel your garden isn’t at its full potential. The flowers are blooming, the grass is beautifully green, but you don’t have somewhere to sit and enjoy it all. That’s where your log cabin comes in. Log cabins are popular outdoor spaces that allow you to enjoy your garden while engaging with activities you love. If you think this summer is the season you’ll invest in a log cabin, there are a few things you need to consider first.

Log cabins have several uses, and you can purchase different cabin styles to suit your needs. At Logspan, we offer gazebos, BBQ huts, bespoke buildings and more. It’s worth looking at our website and seeing if an alternative cabin style best suits your needs.

Popular uses for traditional log cabins during the summer include:

Play area for your children.

You want your child to be able to enjoy the summer safely. However, the sun’s harmful rays mean you can’t guarantee the protection of your child at all times. A log cabin provides a safe, contained, and shady environment for your children to play in.

Eating space

You might be interested in a BBQ hut, a two-in-one solution for cooking and sitting outside. But, some people prefer to use their log cabin as an extended dining room or buffet space. Keep your food fresh and away from bugs inside your garden cabin. And set up a table and chairs for those who wish to eat inside, away from the sun.

Reading nook

Have you always dreamed of a summer escape? A personal paradise for you to unwind away from the hustle and bustle of the busy house? A garden cabin is your perfect outdoor sanctuary. Read with sunlight beaming through the window and enjoy the tranquillity of your private space.

Things to consider before ordering your garden cabin

There are numerous ways to use a garden cabin in the summer. But, you need to ensure it’s the correct investment for you and your family.

Will you use it all year?

Before you invest in a log cabin, you need to consider how and when you’ll use this space. Do you want a log cabin for summers in the shade? Or is it a purchase you’ll use in the winter, turn into a home office for autumn, and enjoy during spring too? If you think you’ll only utilise your garden cabin in summer, is it worth the investment for you and your family?

Do you have the budget?

If you haven’t considered purchasing a garden cabin for a while, you might not have the budget to spend. Rather than jumping in, full steam ahead, we recommend looking at your finances, discussing with one of our cabin experts, and considering if this is the long-term investment you want to make (not just a summer fling!)

A log cabin is a wonderful accompaniment to all your summer fun. Whether you decide to build a traditional log cabin, gazebo, or BBQ hut, summers will never be the same again! But, before you reach out, ask yourself how and when you’ll use the space and if you’re ready to make the investment.

Summer Accessories For Your Log Cabin

You already know how incredible summers with a log cabin are. You’ve experienced socialising with friends, enjoying delicious meals, and relaxing in your log cabin. But this year, you’re ready to upgrade your experience and give your garden cabin that little bit extra, something to make it special and unique to you and your family. Are we right? Here are several ways you can enhance your log cabin when the weather gets warmer with some fantastic accessories.

Add a weathervane

You’ve had your log cabin or BBQ hut for a few years now. And you’re noticing other people in the neighbourhood are building log cabins similar to yours. While you’re excited they’ll get to experience the joys of owning a log cabin, you can’t help but feel a little disappointed your garden will no longer shine out amongst the rest. If you’re searching for a way to make your garden cabin unique, a weathervane is a perfect addition. At Logspan, we stock weathervanes with all different designs, so you can make sure your garden cabin stands out and reflects you! Pick from a cooper sailboat, classic rooster, labrador, and so many more.

Purchase long-lasting crockery

Summer is the season of fun and adventure. You want to be able to run around the garden, play games, eat indulgent food and drink carefree! But, with traditional crockery, you run the risk of things getting broken, causing potential hazards. Say goodbye to the porcelain cups and plates and go enamel instead. Our enamel mugs are made with adventure in mind. You won’t have to worry about dropping, spilling or misplacing this sturdy kitchen essential. Pick from red and blue, and make summer enjoying your outdoor space even easier this season.

Use a cooler table

Go one step further with your food and drink appliances and purchase a Cool Table for your garden cabin or BBQ hut. A cooler table keeps all your drinks at the perfect temperature during the sticky summer heat and adds a luxurious look to your space. Our Cooler Tables come in three designs; Moonstone, Darktsone, and Mini Darkstone. Fill your table with ice and add your favourite bottle of fruit bubbly or ice cool waters for re-energising after a game in the garden. All our cooler tables have space for resting your glasses and wood tops, meaning they can be used as regular tables when drinks aren’t required.

BBQ Hut Bundle Box

Get BBQ ready with our BBQ bundle boxes. Inside is everything you need to be king (or queen!) of the BBQ; a cushion set, extractor fan, cookbook, wooden table, and even your charcoal. We know how important a summer BBQ is to you and your family, so we wanted to ensure you’re fully prepared. Plus, you’ll be saving hundreds of pounds! Stock up now and be ready for when the first signs of British sunshine peep through the clouds (we all know this is the sign it’s BBQ time!) Pick from our 7m2, 9m2 or 11m2 bundles.

These summer log cabin accessories guarantee you’ll make the most out of your outdoor space during the most joyous season of the year. How do you plan on spending your summer? And which of these will you be using to make the long-awaited sunshine feel even more special?
