If you’re considering building a holiday home: either for yourself or for an investment to let out to holidaymakers, buying a log cabin could be the ideal solution. Log cabin homes are increasing in popularity thanks to their versatility and can be used to increase your current living space or even to replace a long-term residential property. Find out what to look out for when buying a log cabin home and where you can find one to suit you.

Log cabin homes to suit the whole family

As with any investment, it is important to think about the long-term benefits. If you are looking for a log cabin home to suit your whole family, it may be worth sitting down together to discuss what your needs are now and how they might change over time.

If you are looking to buy a log cabin to use as your family holiday home, think about the number of rooms required and the access required for each one. Would you like a two-storey home, or would a one-storey cabin be more suitable if you have elderly relatives or small children in the family? What about outdoor seating space or storage facilities? Can you buy a log cabin on the market that fits all your requirements?

If you can’t find an off-the-shelf residential lodge to meet your needs, a bespoke log cabin service could be the ideal solution. At Log Cabins Lakeland we offer a free consultation to allow you to discuss your design ideas and preferences. We have your initial plans back with you within 24 hours. From there we can hone the design between us until you are completely happy. And then the build commences.

How to install a residential lodge

Installing a residential lodge on your land or on a holiday park can be a difficult and time-consuming task. Many of our log cabin homes can be assembled at home with a small team of helpers. However, a professional installation means that less time is wasted and you can enjoy your new residential lodge much more quickly.

The Log Cabins Lakeland installation service includes everything from the ground up. We supply the foundations of your building in a choice of concrete or timber framing, to ensure a stable and long-lasting installation. We will also install decking or a veranda to create an outdoor space for you to enjoy.
