This 6m x 4m log cabin by Garden Affairs was built to serve as self-contained guest accommodation. Visiting family and friends will be staying in comfort as the space has been divided into a main living space with kitchenette and a bedroom area.
Built using substantial 70mm thick interlocking timbers, many log cabins use narrower timbers than Garden Affairs offer. The floor and roof feature insulation. This combination creates a cabin that will be comfortable to use all year round.
Doors and windows have been focused on the front elevation with three Velux windows fitted in the rear side of the roof, for extra light. The glazing was upgraded from the standard finish to use safety glass. Garden Affairs clients were concerned about stray cricket balls hitting the glass when their grandchildren visited. The doors and windows were painted in the Garden Affairs factory prior to installation.
The pitched roof extends beyond the front wall creating both a nice design detail, but also a shady seating area, overlooking the garden.
This log cabin guest annexe was built in four days. The customer then painted the exterior walls to complement the factory finished doors and windows.
