Multipurpose garden cabin

Custom Built Surrey have recently completed this lovely garden cabin that has been designed as a ‘me time’ space. We love the amount of detail that Mark Burton of Custom Built Surrey puts into his designs. He cleverly mixes materials and details the joinery really well, creating unique garden buildings for his clients.

This garden cabin sits on a footprint of 4 meters by 7 meters, so is pretty big. The living space is extended thanks to the two sleeping lofts with dormer windows – these take skill to build.

The garden cabin is designed to have multiple uses for the family. It is part study area for the kids, a place to watch films, an occasional home office and guest accommodation for family and friends.

The cabin has a cedar shingle roof; this is coupled with waney edge Larch boards. We particularly like the detailing on the gable end, it features two glazed panels with vertical hardwood slats which have been designed to let light into the sleeping area but offer privacy so no one can see in.

This project took 8 weeks to build and cost around £31,000 which is great when you consider its size and the amount of work that went into the build.

Obviously, you could commission Mark and his team to build you a garden cabin like this, alternatively, Custom Built Surrey offer their cabins in kit form which they will deliver throughout the UK. You then have the pleasure of building the cabin yourself.
