As children grow it is only natural that they require more room, to work, rest and play. Your home that once seemed spacious can seem cramped because there isn’t enough room for the children to run around and enjoy themselves. But fear not, there is no need to go to the hassle of moving to a different home or the expense and red-tape of building an extension to your home. Log cabins are a great cost effective alternative that not only give you the added space desired but also create a beautiful focal point for your garden.
Adding on an extension can cost tens of thousands, and often require lengthy and complicated planning permission, which you are not guaranteed to get. In addition, should you have the funds and get clearance from local authorities then your next challenge is finding someone reputable who you can trust to undertake the project. In the end, many families simply give up and make do with what they have because of the hassles, hurdles and expenses.
The idea of putting a shed in the garden doesn’t appeal to some people because they picture yesterday’s designs and building methods that created eyesores that started falling down before they were worn in. However, things are much different today and a well-designed log cabin can actually add to the aesthetics of your home. Once you see the cabin in place, you will see how it actually adds beauty to your home. That is something that cannot be said for those older garden buildings from years past.
A log cabin can actually add to the look of a home whilst providing the extra space your family so desperately needs. These beautiful and economical alternatives to messy and expensive construction projects have a contemporary look that is a superior alternative to yesterday’s concrete or metal sheds or garages.
Even better, these cabins come in a variety of styles to blend in well with your home’s design and a variety of sizes to fit every budget and garden size. Smaller cabins provide a simple space away from the rest of family where one or two children can play in the safety whilst the bigger models can offer your family two or more rooms to enjoy.
You can put a playhouse anywhere in the garden, and if you really want to go all out, and have the budget, you can create a mini playground in your own back garden, with swings and slides. Find a small table and chairs so the kids have somewhere to sit, or an old sofa you or a friend no longer use. When you’ve got the log cabin set up, your children can use it for whatever they want; one minute a house, the next a spaceship, or a castle. Their imaginations can keep them occupied for hours, while you can relax knowing they’re safe in the back garden.
It’s likely the kids will decide they want to do everything in their new den, and why not? Let them eat a few meals outdoors if the weather allows, and they’ll probably find homework a lot more exciting when they do it in the playhouse. In summer you may even decide to let them camp out in the playhouse a few nights!
One of the beauties of a well-built log-cabin is that it will last years, even decades, meaning that as your children the playhouse can evolve. When your children started needing a quiet place to study then they can turn it in to their own private office. Alternative, if they grow into the musical type they can have their own practice room for them and their bandmates, ensuring that your house remains peaceful when you’re trying to unwind from a long day at work.
Even further down the line, once your children have flown the nest then the logeivity of a log cabin that means you can use it yourself for whatever you want, beat the crowds at the gym by having your own personal fitness suite at the end of your garden, alternatively you could create an art studio, poker den or anything else you desire, the only limitation is your imagination!
One of the least expensive ways to get a playroom to add enjoyment to your home is to get a log cabin for the garden. Since it is also one of the quickest and most appealing alternatives to an extensive and messy extension, it is very likely the right choice for your family.
