First, consider all the uses you’d like for your new log cabin. Is it multi-functional? Part-home office, part-entertaining space? This will allow you to consider how many internal rooms you may need and will consequently influence the size of the building. Would you also like it to be designed with a side shed for your clutter so you get the best of both worlds all under one roof?
Next, think about how often you’ll be using the log cabin throughout the year and seasons. Do you expect it to be a warmer-weather retreat or is it somewhere to be used all year round? This will influence the thickness of the cladding you may go for and whether or not you require additional insulation. This also may influence the thickness of the window glazing you go for. The thicker the glazing, the better the heat retention of the building.
After this, how many doors and windows will provide you with the perfect amount of accessibility and natural light? You can opt for privacy sized windows, half length windows and full length windows. Privacy windows are perfect for storage rooms and letting light in, whilst keeping your belongings safely out of easy view. Full-length windows are perfect for entertaining areas, providing the maximum amount of natural light, while encouraging the view out to the garden, giving the illusion of additional space.
