Wooden Workshop Ideas
Finding the right workshop for you takes time. There are so many different styles and sizes to fulfil all your needs. From small to heavy-duty garden workshops, modern designs and even traditional apex workshops.
A small to medium garden workshop may be ideal for a DIY aficionado, looking to expand their hobby to a dedicated space outside of the house. These are also the perfect place to store their unfinished projects and various tools needed to complete their craft of choice.
However, if you are looking for a bigger space to navigate large items and constructions, a heavy-duty garden workshop sounds like a better option for you. This is because you will be guaranteed heavy-duty walls and floors.
If you want your garden workshop to be as tough and hard-working as you are, choose one of our wooden workshops! Our windows and doors are glazed with 4mm toughened glass and come in single or double glazed options. The internally-beaded windows and handle locks with keys mean your valuable equipment and tools are safe and sound.
Garden Sheds and Workshops
If you need some extra storage, why not opt for a garden workshop? Combine your log cabin workshop with a variety of sheds to store your essentials in a place that’s easy to retrieve them from. Whether it’s your lawnmower, motorbike, bicycles, garden tools, or even to shelter your mobility scooter. Rest assured your belongings will sit in a safe place right next to your garden building.
Garden Office Workshop
A garden workshop can also be a great place to work and manage your work/life balance. It also reduces your morning commute to a few seconds, allowing you to arrive with your coffee still warm. Separate your work and home life, and get the best of both worlds!
Our log cabins and dedicated garden offices have high-security doors and windows that can only be removed from inside. Meaning your important documents or valuable equipment will be well protected and insurable.
If you’re looking to make the most of your garden workshop, opt for a multiple room log cabin. Our multi-room log cabins come in various styles and options, offering you the ultimate customisation experience. You can separate your workshop to create different work, relaxation and storage areas using our L shaped log cabins with pre-existing dividing walls.
Our versatile multi-room garden workshops will give you the flexibility to use them however you need. They are perfect if you’re looking to use them for leisure, storage or as an office. You can set the rooms out exactly how you need them without the expenses of a house extension.
Insulated Garden Workshop
If you intend to use your wooden workshop all year round, opt-in for an insulated garden workshop. Add insulation to your workshop or choose one of our fully insulated log cabins.
Our Warmalog insulated log cabins are an innovative concept with 62mm sandwich of timber and polyisocyanurate. Their U-Value is equivalent to a 110mm wall thickness. An ideal option for any weather. Keep yourself and loved ones warm and cosy with triple tongue and groove logs and double glazed windows as standard.
Our insulation options are quick and easy to install into your wooden workshop and help promote heat retention. Saving you money on your heating bills. We always supply Polyisocyanurate insulation, a far better insulation than Rockwool or polystyrene. Even NASA uses it!
Transform that awkward section of your garden with an affordable solution that doesn’t require planning permission. A corner workshop will give you the extra space you need to expand your living space without expensive house extensions.
Garden Workshop Maintenance
Ensure your garden workshop lasts the ages, by taking the correct measures to maintain it properly.
Our experts recommend choosing the right treatment for your log cabin and that you treat it as soon as it’s built. At Dunster House, we offer a variety of wall preservatives that are solvent and water-based. In addition to selecting the best log cabin treatment, it’s also important that you re-apply treatment when required. This will depend on the cabin preservative you have chosen.
Furthermore, creating an environment that aids moisture control is an important element in maintaining your garden room. Make sure measures are in place for the roof, floor, foundations and surrounding drainage to help shake off the extra moisture and prevent rot, fungal and insect infestations.
At Dunster House, we use pressure treated floor bearers to protect the lowest part of the building. We use a large pressure treatment tank that forces the treatment deep into the timber at high pressure. Due to this effective process, we offer our customers a genuine 10-year guarantee against rot and insect infestation on the bearers.
Don’t forget; your garden cabin room is made of timber, a natural product that will contract and expand according to the UK’s unpredictable weather. Once the cabin is erected, there will be a period of “settling” as the wood reacts and adjusts to the surrounding climate. Splits and cracks may occur over time, but that shouldn’t compromise the quality of your garden building.
We use interlocking tongue and groove timber in our garden rooms to help with the strength and stability of the walls, as well as the natural expansion and contraction of the timber.

Garden Workshop Wall Thickness
Our wooden garden workshops are available in a range of wall thicknesses; 28mm, 45mm and 62mm (Insulated) which is equivalent to 110mm U-Value.
U-Values, provide a measure of heat loss found within building materials used for walls, floors and roofs. If you intend to use your cabin all-year-round - rather than seasonally - you should choose as thick a wall as possible, to maximise the insulation.
To allow you to compare options, we quote the U-Values of the walls below.
Our 28mm walls are almost 50% bigger than a 19mm wall and are ideal for larger buildings for seasonal use. (U-Value 2.59 w/m2 K)
Our 45mm walls contain over 60% more wood than a 28mm wall and are ideal for use all-year-round. (U-Value 1.93 w/m2 k)
Our 62mm walls are a triple tongue and groove sandwich of timber and polyisocyanurate insulation. This achieves a U-Value equivalent to 110mm walls. (U-Value 0.59w/m2 K)

Planning permission for garden workshop
You may have found what you’re looking for, a log cabin to your exact taste and measurements. That’s great! However, before placing an order for your wooden building, it’s essential to familiarise yourself with any planning permission or building regulations that may apply.
The good news is that most of our log cabins don’t require planning permission. This is due to the unique designs that utilise the maximum width and height available to us, giving you as much space as possible, without the need to opt for tall log cabins. Although we have a wide range of under 2.5m log cabins, some exceptions may still apply. It’s vital that you check whether you’ll need planning permission or not.
To make it easier for you, we created a quick step Planning Permission questionnaire to help you determine whether you’ll need planning permission.
Head over to our Planning Permission Quiz and the official government site for more info on building regulations.
