Using log cabins or large garden rooms as classrooms, kindergartens, nurseries, studios, or offices is a viable, and very affordable solution. It can be realized short term, but will provide valuable space for a long period into the future.
Offices for multiple employees, buildings to house administrations, and classrooms will, of course have to have a certain size, which would extend that of an average summerhouse. Also, the floor plans will have to fit the specific needs.
We will introduce you to two large log cabins that are especially suitable for these kinds of usages. However, if you will have a look at our selection of large garden rooms, you will find many more possible candidates these kinds of usages.
The Log Cabin Classroom is specifically designed as a classroom or nursery
On a total floor area of 60m2 (5x12m), the log cabin Classroom offers 45m2(9m out of the total 12m length) as the main classroom. It has a comfortably large double-glazed double door as a main entrance and four large double-glazed double windows, nicely looking with sash bars.
One smaller entrance to the main classroom is in the back leading to a door in the back of the large room leading into a corridor with doors to 3 smaller rooms of about 2,35m2 each with an additional window that are open for any usage as toilets, showers, storage, or whatever you need.
The wall thickness of 70mm guarantees a sturdy construction, a long life span, and constitutes an excellent basis for an effective insulation which would be advisable for all year round use.
As one recent example shows, a complete construction inclusive of insulation and all installations can be realized within a £30,000 budget during an installation period of less than one week.
In spite of its name, the classroom log cabin can be used for a variety of purposes from shops over exhibition rooms to conference rooms.
The Two Bedroom Summerhouse Dune
The Two Bedroom Summerhouse Dune is a large garden room that has also already been ordered by schools to serve as an additional classroom. It even has altogether four rooms which makes it suitable to house several groups of children or one or two additional teacher´s offices, wardrobes, storage rooms, or whatever your enterprise needs.
The central main entrance with a large double door leads directly into the main room with 37m2. From there two more well usable rooms of 12.5m2 each are accessible and one small room of 3.1m2 that could contain a toilet and a sink, or a storage room for teaching materials. The overall space is 70m2 under a roof spanning over 75m2. This large log cabin therefore offers a bit more classroom space than the Classroom cabin itself. To calculate exactly: It offers 16% more space, but with a price tag of only £17,500.00, it takes just £1,000 (6%) more out of your budget compared to the Classroom log cabin. And this extraordinary low price does not indicate any loss of quality: Wall thickness is 70mm as well, windows are opening and double glazed, the front door even can be changed from fully glazed to half glazed or completely solid and, of course, all our models do have cylinder locks for the doors in the standard package.
