For those on a budget, there are many ways to keep the cost of bespoke log cabins at an affordable level.
For example, when starting with log cabin foundations, keeping the work to a minimum will reduce costs. This can be achieved by choosing a site that is accessible and flat. When there is no vegetation or large rocks that need moving, the price can be lowered even further.
Another way of building outdoor huts and gazebos without breaking the bank is to carefully choose the timber. Although the costs of wood can fluctuate, harder woods and Scandinavian soft woods can be more expensive, generally. Buying locally, however, can often reduce the costs, allowing you to build your BBQ hut shed to your exact specifications.
Thicker planks of wood will create a sturdier building that will need less maintenance, therefore reducing the costs of upkeep to a manageable level.
Although choosing good quality insulation for your garden cabin room may seem initially like an expensive outlay, over time, the costs of your energy consumption to keep the structure warm and dry will balance out.
Other elements of log cabins to consider include the doors and windows. Purchasing the best quality you can afford may increase the overall cost of your log cabins, but in the long term, the heating costs will be lower, saving you money over the coming years and allowing you to recoup this spend.
