In order to create a personal workspace, a home extension in the form of a loft, an additional floor, or a basement can be a significant financial burden. Not only that, but hearing constant construction work going on for a significant period of time may also take its toll on your ears. But, if you’re intent on creating a new personal space, and you don’t mind the idea of it being detached from your physical house (albeit very close to it), then you might consider building a cabin in your garden.
This structure, log cabin or summer house, needn’t be the rustic workshop that most of you probably have in your mind. Instead, a well-insulated small building with electricity, heating, and modern amenities may offer the perfect setting for your office, art studio, or other types of workspaces that can help you to pursue your hobby. The fact that the cabin will be detached from your house will likely help clear your mind of any distractions, allowing you to focus on your passions in peace.
Here are a few hobbies which could really be enhanced with such log cabins:
Writing: A detached cabin may provide enough mental separation from your household life, fostering the perfect environment to overcome writer’s block. With glass windows looking over your garden, the green grass, and flowers may provide the natural inspiration to keep the ink flowing out of the tip of your pen. What better writing atmosphere is there?
Yoga sessions: For some, yoga classes at the gym or elsewhere don’t always cut it. Sometimes they will be busy or fully-booked. Peaceful and personal surroundings, available on your own schedule, may often be the key to physical and mental development. On top of that, having a yoga room is likely to save you travelling time and costs. Do the exercises at your own pace, and, if budget allows, you might even decide to hire a private instructor or begin hosting your own classes
A guest room: It’s often the case that other family members don’t always want your guests coming around. But, at the same time, you don’t want to go out. Well, there’s a perfect solution for that. A garden cabin will mean that there is a physical separation between your family members and your guests, making sure that they don’t bother each other. This can be particularly useful if your children want to bring friends home, but you don’t want to be bothered.
Artworks: Whether it be painting or sculpting, having your own separate space dedicated to your works will allow you to get as messy as you like. Many of these creative pursuits also create collections of paints and tools needed for the practice, which benefit from having their own organised space. Sculpting, canvas work and other art practices often take up a lot of space, which may not be available for use in the house.
All in all, hobby cabins can help provide additional space to your house while providing a physical separation that can be ideal for pursuing your hobby. You’ll have more space, peace and quiet, and an inspiring natural environment.
