You’ve probably heard that summer houses have become a popular investment, especially over the last few years. If you were wondering what makes people buy a summer house, we’re here to help. There are numerous reasons to buy one and all of them will make your life better.
If you were on the lookout for a cost-effective and attractive way to add some extra space to your property, then a summer house is the best option. Home extensions can be extremely expensive and building them is a tedious and time-consuming task.
But, without further ado, let’s take a look at some of the most compelling reasons to invest in a summer house.
To Earn Some Extra Money
Did you know that summer houses be easily used as Airbnb rentals? Cottages and cabins are very popular on vacation websites because they are a comfortable and cheap alternative to hotels. If you were planning on using your log cabin as a guest house, consider renting it whenever you don’t have any guests staying over. If you are up-to-date with the latest interior design trends, decorating your summer house in a stylish and modern way will be easy and guests will be eager to visit your place.
To Entertain and Accommodate Family and Friends
Summer houses are perfect for dining, chatting, and sharing drinks with loved ones. Once you buy a contemporary log cabin, your get-togethers will be much more entertaining. Just picture yourself surrounded by friends and family, on a warm summer’s evening, laughing, making a BBQ, having a few drinks, playing games, and having a wonderful time. Sounds amazing, doesn’t it?
The scenario above can be easily put into practice if you choose a garden log cabin with a terrace such as our Jacob E contemporary garden summer house. Being equipped with premium features such as sliding doors, glazed windows, and 44mm walls, the Jacob E log cabin is ideal for having fun in your backyard. Furthermore, it’s extremely easy to install. The whole process will only take about two days.
To Have a Relaxing Garden Retreat.
In this day and age, we spend way too much time in noisy environments. At work, in front of the TV, out shopping – all of these activities are extremely stressful. Summer houses can be used as private, quiet, and beautiful garden retreats. Instead of spending an hour in front of the TV, imagine spending an hour reading or paining in your garden house. Being far from all the chaos and the noise will come as a blessing.
The perfect and most affordable log cabin for this purpose is the 3×3 Victoria B corner summer house. This elegant and versatile structure fits in pretty much any garden. Its pentagonal shape makes it ideal for a corner installation providing an amazing view of the whole garden.
To Finally Pursue Your Hobbies
We all have certain hobbies that we had to give up because we didn’t have enough room in our homes. Those of us who have children know this best. Having a studio inside the house is impossible when your children are playing hide and seek and wreaking havoc.
Log cabins make perfect studios. If you buy one, you’ll finally be able to start painting, scrapbooking, sculpting, making pottery, and any other thing that you love. Rather than keeping all of your hobby stuff tucked away in a drawer and only taking them out when the kids are away, you’ll be able to have a place dedicated to creativity where everything is where you want it to be.
The hobby studio of your dreams fits perfectly in our 5.9×4.1 Barbados Hobby Room. This modern and fancy log cabin will make the perfect place to let your imagination run wild. This log cabin is equipped with large windows, so you’ll have plenty of light, and it is very versatile. So, if you don’t need a hobby room anymore, you can easily turn it into something else.
To Stop Wasting Time in Traffic
Did you know that, on average, commuters waste more than 50 hours in traffic per year? According to a 2019 report, people spend more and more time in their cars on their way to work. That means that your job combined with your commute can take up your whole day. If you’ve always dreamed of leaving this tedious routine behind, now is the time to do it. Log cabins make for perfect garden offices and with more and more people working from home, this solution has become increasingly popular.
You can move your whole office in your garden by making a small investment – our 5×5 Hansa Lounge. Equipped with thick 44mm walls, a veranda, and double glazed windows, this log cabin has been extremely popular among our customers who were seeking a sturdy and modern structure fit for a garden office.
