Log Cabin Man Caves, She Sheds, Home Cinema’s, we have seen our Log Cabins turned into a variety of different things but they all mean the same thing; a safe haven. A garden building where you can escape from the day to day stresses of work and domestic chores to unwind with friends, family or alone. A space to watch sports, have a drink, disappear into your favourite music or simply enjoy the peace and quiet. We talk you through the basic staples of turning your garden Log Cabin into a Man Cave or She Shed.
When you are looking for your Log Cabin, size is not all you have to think about. You want to make sure that it is made out of a long lasting material, a wood such as slow grown spruce. Slow grown spruce is a denser material so is more resistant to blue mold or water damage then other woods such as pine. You want to make sure that your Log Cabin remains strong over time, so you don’t waste all of your interior design work.
It is important to think long term when you are planning how to use your Log Cabin. If you are planning to use your Log Cabin or Summerhouse for multiple reasons, which we hope you do, then you need to look into storage options for your garden equipment, tools and anything else you need to store. You could look into adding a shed to your garden but this will take up additional garden room.
The vast majority of our Log Cabin range come with a sidestore. Made with the same heavy duty interlocking timber as the rest of our products, this attaches to the Log Cabin and has a single locking door to keep all of your equipment safe when inside. Its sloping roof helps you maximise storage as the long handled, tall tools can be placed at the highest point, whilst the smaller toys and boxes can be placed at the smaller part.
Due to the sidestore being made from the same slow grown spruce as the rest of the Log Cabin, it can be treated with the same treatment. This helps with the aesthetics of the garden, helping it stand out for all the right reasons.
Decorate your cabin
With a theme in mind, it is time to start decorating your cabin. We recommend you treat your Log Cabin before you use it, even for the first time. This will help protect your Log Cabin against the varied elements that the British weather can throw at it. If you don’t treat your Log Cabin, it will deteriorate as the moisture enters the grain of the spruce. Read more about how to maintain your Log Cabin here.
With your interior decoration, it's the little things that make the biggest difference. A personalised plaque for the top of your bar, stocked only with your favourite drink, add the ideal gaming chair for you to sink into when you will be gaming for hours or something as seemingly simple as picking out the right chair to sink into after a hard day's work.
Have a look online to find the right type of furniture, decor and everything you need to make it your own personal space. Look at our social media pages, as well as our customer stories section on the blog, to find inspiration for your Log Cabin.
