Hot On The Heels Of Our Granny Annexes Come The New  Cedar Clad Garden Studio Range By Contemporary Log Living

"pete cossie"Note from Pete: We will be at the Surrey Home Building & Renovation Show next weekend at Sandown Racecourse on the 29th & 30th June which is the only designated show of its kind for the South.

Just as at the National Home Building & Renovation Show earlier this year at the NEC in Birmingham we will be on hand to answer any questions you may have about self-building and we’ll have some special show offers on the CLL Contemporary mobile home during the show.

The concept behind the CLL Contemporary is that is so versatile …

  • As a full-blown mobile home it is the CLL Contemporary
  • As an extension it becomes a Flexi-room
  • As a smaller stand alone model it becomes a CLL Contemporary Garden Studio ….

The Work From Home Business Model Keeps Growing From Strength To Strength

Working from home has never been easier …

You simply need a computer and an internet connection and you can literally start your own business in part-time hours working from the comfort of your own home.

Or you can move an existing business to your back garden and turn your back on having to rent expensive office space that you don’t really need.

Either way the work from home business sector is growing from strength to strength and one of the best ways to keep your home and business life separate (and get a lot more work done in a fraction of the time) is to build a work from home office in the garden like one of our new CLL Cedar Clad Garden Studios.

Why We Choose Cedar To Clad Our Buildings And Why You Should Too

We’ve completed buildings in both slow grown Scandinavian pine and western red cedar and for the highest quality finish to our buildings we recommend high-grade cedar for a variety of reasons.

Kiln dried wood has a number of advantages over air-dried or non dried (green) wood. Kiln drying results in evenly dried timber with consistent moisture content throughout. There is no need to acclimatised kiln dried wood on site, it can be finished and installed immediately. Kiln dried wood experiences minimal movement and shrinkage and will have a superior finish when machined into profiles ready to clad buildings such our garden studios, granny annexes and mobile homes.

If you are shopping around and wondering why there are price variations for what appears to be the “same thing” check for the grade of material used. It is common practise with sawn grades of Western Red Cedar to offer a higher grade with a percentage of a lower grade mixed in. Our suppliers operate a clear grading no mixing policy and that’s why we know exactly what our customers are getting which is a high quality product.

Small samples have very little use in helping you see what the overall product and finish will look like. Our show model is designed to give you the perfect viewpoint from both inside and out.

"cedar cladding"

Different colours and tones are a feature of building anything with wood and you will want to make sure that you choose a building with the highest possible quality cedar for a more consistent quality and finish. As with anything some manufacturers focus on keeping the price low and the growing region and mixing of grades will have an effect on the price and the end product. Our garden studio (pictured below) has a UV protective clear applied which helps preserve the “new look” of cedar rather than it turning to its natural grey colour as it ages. Some people like the greying process, others don’t and of course you will see cedar being used on many commercial buildings and houses today demonstrating its durability and strength.

Because of our insistence on only using high quality products in our manufacturing process we only use a high-grade Western Red Cedar cladding called Clear Vertical Grain. It contains virtually no knots or natural imperfections of any kind and is selected for the direction of the grain.

These Buildings Are Not Just For Work … They Are Perfect For All Sorts Of Things …

Home Gyms, Spas And Salons

We can build in a small bathroom and toilet or even a kitchenette for a relatively small additional cost  if you need a totally separate home office space away from the main house or a self-contained salon, spa or gym room.

One of the most popular ways to work from home is in the hair & beauty industry where a mini salon in your garden will pay you an excellent return on your investment and delight your customers at the same time.

Home Cinema / Media Rooms / Nurseries

If you have children of any age a garden studio offers the perfect healthy and safe environment to provide children (and adults) of any age a designated “chill out” or play zone. Whether it is a games room, playroom or media room everyone can enjoy the additional space.

Hobby Room / Artist’s Studio

For budding artist’s of any kind having a quiet place in which to be creative is exactly what they need and the best way to create a dynamic space in which to retreat to is a cedar clad garden studio. With the bi-fold door option you can even open up the space to “work outdoors” when the sun shines.

Swim Spas / Saunas

We are all living in a health conscious age where more and more of us are choosing to eat organic fruit, meat and vegetables, increase our relaxation and meditation time and take regular daily exercise to keep as active fit and healthy as possible especially if we are in the over 40’s age group and above. One of the easiest ways to make sure you get enough relaxation and exercise if to combine a swim spa and sauna in your garden studio as the perfect way to start the day.
