There are any amount of good reasons for choosing a log cabin as the perfect new building for your garden. Log cabins are both versatile and beautiful and will transform and add an extra dimension to your garden.
The big difference between garden log cabins and garden sheds is that the logs used to construct log cabins tend to be much thicker than those used for sheds, often ranging from 19mm all the way up to 70mm. Most garden sheds are constructed from panels which are about 10mm thick.
One of the more popular uses of a log cabin is storage. These storage sheds can be well-ventilated and protect your belongings from heat damage as a result of their windows and doors. They are pleasant to look at, and have the double use of storing things and decorating the garden. You can fill the storage shed with things you don’t need out all the time, such as winter items. Log cabins provide storage space for things like bicycles and other outside equipment. Since it will be outside in your garden area anyway, another excellent use because it is to keep garden supplies in it. Your porch won’t have to be littered with wheel-barrows and shovels anymore. Store it all neatly inside your cosy little log cabin. Some larger log cabins are even designed to accommodate for car storage.
When warm weather has come, people often enjoy just sitting out in their garden. Some log cabin sheds have many windows and make the perfect place to sit in the shadows and look out upon the landscape. There are some that are available with little porches, so they can be used only for storage on the interior and a place to relax on the outside.
Of course, to make a garden log cabin the perfect place to relax you could consider including a bar. Some people go all out and have a bar complete with bar stools; others find the simpler solution is to add a small fridge for drinks. However it’s done, most people find they have created the perfect place to spend their spare time.
Price is the reason that many people decide against a log cabin and opt for a cheaper shed for their garden. There is no disguising the fact that a log cabin is a reasonably expensive product, but when you weigh up the advantages and cons, you understand that it is far better value than the initial price suggests.
A log cabin will last longer than a shed if properly looked after. Most people find that they spend a great deal more quality time in a log cabin. Similar descriptions are rarely given to garden sheds. Overall, if you played in the extra quality of the building, along with its longer life, the log cabin is a large value purchase that is worth every penny.
