You really are spoilt for choice with a whole gamut of ideas for the extra living space a log cabin gives you.
So be inspired.
I’ve put together a list of top 10 suggestions to whet your appetite and get you thinking.
With the addition of some comfy garden furniture, what better way to create your perfect bolt hole to escape to on a summer’s day with a cuppa and a good book – or a gin and a good friend!
Take a look at my blog Top Tips for Turning a Log Cabin into a Garden Office for advice.
Art Studio/Hobby Room
A light and airy, serene space to get creative, escape the stresses of life and lose yourself in your imagination.
The perfect spot to get inspiration from nature and your garden.
No more explosions of glitter, sequins and glue on the dining room table or lego bricks on the living room floor. Your kids can have their own space to be creative and messy and play.
How nice to be able to shut the door after a fun filled afternoon and leave all the chaos behind 🙂
Important to consider safety glazing.
So having your own space in the garden, out of earshot, where you can sing or play to your heart’s content is just the job.

That old excuse of not having time to get to the gym won’t hold up any more with your very own in the garden. After some outlay on equipment, you can save yourself money in the long run on gym membership and enjoy working out, or a spot of yoga or Pilates, to your heart’s content, without any inhibitions and worrying about prying eyes, in your very own tailor-made space.
Toned and quids in. It’s a win win situation.
And what a fabulous mood booster too, being able to work out while enjoying views of your garden and getting back to nature rather than staring at the butt of the person on the exercise bike in front of you. No contest really.
A great idea if you are a trained beauty therapist or masseuse. Create a calming and relaxing haven for clients in the tranquil setting of your garden away from the bustle of a busy gym or salon.
See Beautiful Birds Beauty Salon for a stunning example of what you can do with a salon in a cabin Sacha, the owner, bought from us, tucked away at the bottom of her garden. It really is the perfect, peaceful hideaway.
Enjoy nights out by having nights in at the bottom of your garden with a fun game of pool or darts.
All Lasita Maja cabins have a bar as an optional extra – sorted.
The ideal space to add a sofa bed to give you an extra room for guests to spend the odd night – or if your teenagers fancy having friends over for a sleepover.
Please note the cabin must comply with Building Regulations to ensure it is safe for sleeping in.
