A Modern Work From Home Cabin For Under £10k

During 2014 (because we cover national installations of our log homes and granny annexes) we took the decision to work from home more of the time from a log cabin.

I fondly remember talking to a fellow exhibitor at the recent National Home Building & Renovation Show at the NEC in Birmingham one morning before the doors opened to the public and he told me (with a big smile on his face) that he had invested less than £10k in a log cabin and moved his business to home, saving himself huge amounts of rent, business rates and overheads.

He then went on to tell me that his turnover from that log cabin for his business was over £1,000,000 per year!

So when people ask me what we recommend as the best contemporary style work from home office, we always recommend the simple but stylish Trend 15 log cabin.

Introducing The Trend 15 Log Cabin

Self-build kit or turn-key service if required

Trend 15
The Trend 15 makes for a perfect garden gym room or home office, with its modern large floor length windows, fully glazed door and mono-pitch roof it is very contemporary and has all the elements of modern styling.

The low pitch means that it can be positioned closer to property boundaries than other traditional log cabin style products. This makes it suitable for smaller gardens and does not typically require planning permission.

Manufactured using 58mm slow grown Nordic pine logs from sustainable forests in the arctic circle makes the wood used in this trendy office space very hard and dense.

There is an optional insulation pack available that would increase the wall thickness to 200mm which makes the Trend 15 warm in winter and comfortable at all times of the year.

“This is our own personal choice for working in from home and we typically run a small electric heater for a few hours on cold mornings during the Autumn / Winter months and absolutely love the “air conditioning” effect of these buildings in the summer as they usually feel at least 10 degrees cooler on a hot summer day.”

Most people will not require local authority planning permission or building control for a log cabin of this size. If you are in any doubt, please refer to the planning portal or consult with your Local Planning Authority.

Floor Plan & Elevation

The modern styling of the Trend 15 and mono-pitch roof make it a perfect addition for s small garden with an area facing the main house at the bottom of the garden.
