Customer story: Brad's Log Cabin

9th September 2017

Autumn is well on its way here, and the colder weather is starting to settle in. But there are many ways that you can make the most of relaxing in the fresh air, spending quality time in your garden.

By creating your ideal garden getaway, you can unwind after those long hours in work. A log cabin gives you the right amount of space to turn it into whatever you want it to be; an arts and crafts studio, a luxurious reading retreat, or even a place to play pool in the evening, without having to wait for the table to be free.

Brad tells us how he transformed his Waltons log cabin into the perfect man cave, creating his own home made bar.

Brad chose the 5x3 Corner Cabin.

Brad's Log Cabin 1
A snug fit

Why did you want to buy a log cabin?
We wanted to create a pub/bar at the bottom of our garden that we can use throughout the year.

Why this particular log cabin, and what made you choose Waltons?
After searching for a while for the right cabin to fit my space I found mine on the Waltons website. It was delivered quickly and the main cabin went together in 2 days with assistance from a friend. This particular log cabin was the right price and it has a high roof, which suited what I wanted to put in it.

Brad Log Cabin 2
Sophisticated simplicity

Where did you get your ideas for decorating it from?
I’m quite creative and wanted it to be a cool bar.

The campervan bar makes for an interesting centrepiece; what made you choose this for your log cabin?
I saw it elsewhere and thought it looked awesome! The bar front is a type 2 Volkswagen camper front that I found in Brighton.

Colourful camper van

Why have you named it The Plough?
The Plough was our local pub before it was sold and re-named as an Indian restaurant... It is now closed. That’s the original sign that I managed to secure.

How does your log cabin fit in with the rest of your garden?
It looks great, and is perfect for entertaining family and friends.

The key to a good man cave is a well stocked bar

How do you plan on using it in the future?
Parties and get togethers with friends. It is quite unique - friends are a little wowed by it.

Are you happy with the finished products and the results?
Very happy - we love it!
