Wooden garden buildings
It’s not difficult to get confused when choosing a garden building, as there are several types, each having a specific appearance and different usage options.
Do you need a large and spacious wooden garden building with several rooms or are you looking for a more compact structure that will fit perfectly into a smaller garden? Would you like to be able to park your car inside your wooden garden building? And how do you best make sure that your wooden garden building will serve you for a long time? And which type of wooden garden building is the right one for your garden?
These are some of the questions that might arise when you start to select your garden building. Therefore, if you want to know the answers to these questions or you even have some others, keep reading.
Log cabins – from a small structure to a spacious addition to your house
One of the greatest advantages that log cabins provide can sometimes become a disadvantage to themselves – as log cabins are such versatile structures and can come in many shapes and sizes, people sometimes have difficulty distinguishing them from other types of wooden garden building. They do, however, have a signature feature that’s quite memorable – the overlapping corner connections. This feature also ensures that log cabins are strong and sturdy structures, making them the most reliable type of wooden garden building.
As mentioned earlier, log cabins are very versatile, which means that they are available in widely varying sizes. Therefore, they can fit in well in almost any garden, regardless of its size. Depending on your needs, you can choose from various log cabin designs – from a tiny one that is probably only suitable for a storage shed, to large, spacious designs that look more like small wooden houses than garden buildings and can even have several rooms.
Thanks to their structural stability, log cabins are very well suited for use as living space, allowing you to extend your home with the help of a garden building. If you feel like your house is running low on available space, a log cabin could definitely give you those few extra rooms that you’ve been dreaming of.
Wooden garden buildings for those who like to enjoy the garden
Of course, not everyone needs a large wooden garden building to extend the living space of their home – some people just want a small structure in which they can relax and enjoy the view of their garden. A gazebo might be the perfect option in this case, as that’s exactly what they’re made for.
If you want to use your garden building year-round they may not be the right choice, but, in most cases, people only want to use their garden buildings during the warmer months of the year anyway.
If this is true of you, you might find the idea of a pavilion appealing, as they offer an unobstructed view of the garden and that outdoor feeling, while also providing a comfortable place to relax and sufficient shelter from the rain or shade from intense sunlight – whichever it is that you require at that moment.
Wooden garden buildings for parking your car(s)
Another popular reason people decide to look for a wooden garden building is the need for a space in which to park their car.
Wooden garages can prove to be very useful for this, but their usefulness doesn’t stop there as they offer other excellent options as well. Garages usually provide enough room for you to store everything related to the maintenance of your car, and, if well-organised, can store much more besides, without having to give up the space for your car.
People love having a garage as they can solve several problems at once – from providing sheltered parking for your car, protecting it from both winter freezes and summer heatwaves, to creating an extra space for storage, reducing the space used inside your house.
Choosing a wooden garden building that will serve you for a long time
It’s obvious that anyone who decides to construct a wooden garden building will want it to serve them for a long time. To ensure that this is the case, there are a few important aspects that should be kept in mind when choosing your wooden garden building.
The first is to pay attention to the quality of the timber used, as this is the most important factor in ensuring the longevity of garden buildings. It’s especially important to pay attention to whether the timber has been properly dried (otherwise the timber can shrink) and whether the parts fit together with millimetric precision – essential if the building is to be wind- and waterproof.
It’s also recommended that the timber used is grown in countries with a cold climate, as this makes the timber more durable and stable. In addition to high-quality timber, it’s also important to choose high-quality doors and windows, to avoid them becoming the weak point of the structure. Finally, it’s of the utmost importance to lay a proper foundation before you start the construction of your wooden garden building, to ensure that the building won’t sink into the ground at a later point.
