Although many owners of bespoke log cabins prepare their structure for the winter months, there are also tasks that should be completed to protect outdoor huts and gazebos from the extreme heat that may occur in the warmer seasons.
There are several checks and tasks that should be carried out prior to this, which involve general inspections of the overall structure, roof and windows to identify gaps that would allow heat to get inside.
Applying a heat reflective coating can help deflect the worst of the warmth from getting inside your garden cabin room, to prevent it from getting stuffy and uncomfortable. A film applied to the windows is another way of keeping log cabins at just the right temperature, and reflective insulation could help to keep them at a more refreshing temperature.
Internally, structures from a school cabin to a barbeque lodge can be cooled down by ensuring any vents are not obstructed. Installing additional ventilation in the roof or walls will also increase the airflow and help keep the space cool. Keeping well-positioned windows and doors open is an easy way to achieve a relaxing temperature, providing there is a breeze.
Adding awnings to the outside of bespoke log cabins will provide shade and coolness on the warmest of days, and creates an outdoor space that adds to the allure of the building.
