“Discover why the Log Cabin Office has become such a popular solution
to working from home!”
The log cabin office has seen a massive increase in sales over recent years in some countries! Working from home has never been so easy as it is now and the internet has opened up a world of opportunities for working at home. Working at home sound like a wonderful idea, but as many people find out, in order to make it work properly, you really need to separate work and home a little. This is where a log office comes in!
A log cabin office can provide the perfect dedicated work area in your garden, just a few steps from your house. Keeping far enough away for the distractions of home not to intrude on your work life, an office like this works much better than trying to use a room in the house. Log offices also provide a calm and warm environment from which to work and if you need to bring clients to your office, they can create a good impression too!
So which aspects of a Log Cabins Office do you need to consider before choosing yours?
Well we’ve mentioned the logs and the timber quality on many other occasions on this website, so we won’t bang on about it again here. Suffice to say it is very important and you can find out about logs in our
dedicated log section.
One of the principle reasons log offices have grown so popular in countries like the UK, is the planning laws. Most people can construct a reasonably sized separate home office in their garden without the need for planning permission. This, in many cases, is much easier than building an extension, and a separate building is much more appealing anyway.
We will reveal more about planning
and how it can affect home offices.
You need to consider what use you need from your log cabin office. Is it just for you, or do several people need to work from it? Do you need to entertain clients? Are you going to use it every work day of the year? The answers to these and other questions will help guide you in choosing the right log office for
your particular use and needs.
Designs of garden offices do vary quite a bit, from the very basic to the very elaborate. Again, your budget will influence what is possible to a certain extent, but there are certain design features which may be more applicable to you. You will also want to think about where you are locating your office and which way it faces. We made the mistake of having too much glass on our south facing wall, so in the summer we need to run air conditioning a lot to keep it cool! Take a look at
design in more detail.
This is an important consideration, especially if you have cold winters where you are. Many log cabin office buildings are sold without insulation, but if you aim to go right through long, cold winters, you really must consider insulation. Whilst it might add a little to your initial build cost, the additional warmth, comfort and the significant saving in heating costs will soon outweigh this. Look at
how to best insulate your home office
and have a cosy and efficient working environment.
