When we first considered buying a log cabin and making money from renting it out, it seemed like a pipe-dream. We came across Log Cabins Lakeland online and decided to make some enquires about planning permission and costs. Once we’d done the initial calculations, we couldn’t believe how affordable it could be. The cost of the rent would soon mean that the investment would become profitable. The team at Log Cabins Lakeland were really informative about all the logistics; planning permission, delivery, installation – that kind of thing. The installation service was fantastic. Well worth the money. Jonny designs cabins that can be assembled at home. But I really wanted a professional to do this, especially as we were planning to rent the cabin out to holidaymakers. It was up in no time, while my wife and I shopped for interiors and started to plan advertising. We soon had our first guests stay with us and have since racked up some fantastic 5-star reviews!
The team at Log Cabins Lakeland were fantastic. We couldn’t have asked for a better service. Jonny took the time to really understand our situation when we met with him to discuss building a residential log cabin for the back garden. We have quite a bit of land, being fortunate enough to live in a rural area, and my mother-in-law had started to lose her independence with old age. We wanted to comfortably accommodate my mother-in-law in her own log cabin home on our premises. Jonny offered a bespoke service which allowed us to discuss at length what facilities we would need. It was important that she could maintain her independence as best possible, whilst remaining close enough for us to help with daily tasks. Jonny talked us through planning permission regulations and helped us to meet these when designing the perfect premises that suited all our needs.
I’m in love with my new summerhouse! Our garden had always been a bit lacklustre but over the last few years, my husband and I have been preparing for retirement and wanted to create a lovely outdoor space to enjoy all year round. We wanted to buy a large wooden summerhouse with a veranda. My husband enjoys a BBQ and I love to read outdoors, so having an outdoor seating space was really important. We also need a secure area for garden tools, that was separate to the living area of the summerhouse. The team at Log Cabins Lakeland designed a beautiful wooden building that accommodated all our needs. We mentioned that we often had our grandchildren over to stay too, so they made sure that the space was child-friendly and secure – something we hadn’t even considered!
