How To Use Your Log Cabin


So, you’re eyeing up a log cabin, or you have made the purchase, and you’re now thinking about how you can really put your log cabin to good use. Luckily, our cabins come in a lot of sizes and designs, which means that they can be used for a lot of different reasons. We have put together some ideas below on how you could use your Log Cabin.

A Garden Pub

Creating a garden pub can be a great way to use your log cabin; there are a number of benefits to having your own social spot in the comfort of your outdoors space.

It’s a bit of a hassle getting yourself ready to head on out into town,  tackle the busy bars and spend a small fortune in these establishments week in, week out. So why not have your own place, stocked with your favourite drinks, playing your favourite music and having only your friends and family there? There are no last orders when you are the owner.

Using your log cabin as a garden pub is completely customisable. You can be the one who decides what seats to have, what colour scheme and most importantly, what vibe you want to go for. If you want to use your log cabin as a Tiki Hut or a Sports Bar or even a theme based on your hobby, then that’s completely up to you.

A Home Gym

Going to the gym after work can be time consuming, and it also takes a lot of motivation, so a home gym is a fantastic way to use your log cabin.

Creating your own home gym means that you can put whatever you like in it; whether you are a big fan of the free weights or you have your favourite cardio machines, our log cabins can be made to hold whatever you wish. There’s nothing worse than having to wait for equipment to be free, so having your own means you can get straight to the best workout of your life.

You can also decorate your home gym however you wish, paint the walls your favourite colour or place mirrors to check on your form; the list is endless. Even playing around with the lighting to create a cool atmosphere will help bring your home gym to life.

A Snug

A room where you can chill and unwind is always needed in a home, and it’s a great way to use one of our log cabins.

Our log cabins are sturdy and warm. the 45mm wall versions  come with double glazed windows, whilst our 28mm with single glazing. The windows and doors also come with draught excluding gaskets. This means that once kitted out, it can be a very snug room.

A home cinema would be a perfect way to use your log cabin. Add in a super comfy corner sofa, blackout blinds, a screen and surround sound, your favourite snacks, and you’re good to go. It’s a great way to increase your family bonding time in the comfort of your own home. A Friday night in never sounded so good!

You could also use your log cabin to create a nice garden room to sit and relax in, admire the wildlife or simply a nice spot to read the newspaper. A summerhouse to be at one with nature if you wish.

A Playroom/ Games Room

Having children in the family means one thing, lots and lots of toys, and finding space to store the never-ending collection can be hard; therefore a great way to use our log cabin is as a playroom/ games room.

Our different sized log cabins mean that we can cater for a whole range of gardens. You can create a lovely environment for your child to let their imagination loose in. We love seeing how our customers have decorated their log cabins for their children.

Even if your children have grown up and no longer play with their favourite dolls, you can still use your log cabin as a games room. It’s the ultimate den to put in the latest games console or a pool table, perfect to keep them busy throughout the school holidays and a great way to not clutter up the house.
