Do I need planning permission for a log cabin office?
Most people don’t need planning permission to erect a log cabin or garden building. However, it’s always a good idea to check with your local planning office, especially if you live in a listed building, Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, National Park or World Heritage Site. There are also special rules if you plan to run a business from your new garden building, as opposed to just working from home occasionally. See our article on garden building planning permission for more advice.
What’s the best log cabin for a garden office?
There are many different sizes and styles of log cabins to choose from. Available in 19, 28, 34 and 44mm thick logs, we recommend buying the largest 44mm log cabin you can afford, with double-glazed windows. This will give you a comfortable all-year-round office space you won’t grow out of, and can double as a gym, entertaining zone or games room when not required for work.
Can I work in my log cabin in the winter?
Provided you choose a 44mm thick log cabin, and it’s adequately insulated and heated, you can work in it all year round. Read our article on how to connect to mains electricity so you can run computers and install good quality lighting for dark winter days.
There are several options for heating your log cabin in the winter to make sure it’s warm and comfortable. Heating just one garden room is also likely to be cheaper than running the central heating in your whole house.
How do I connect my garden office cabin to the internet?
The best way to establish a reliable internet connection to your garden office cabin is via an ethernet cable. Ask your electrician to install an ethernet cable at the same time as mains electricity. For more options and information read our article on how to connect your garden building to the internet.
