Need a little space to get away from it all?
If you long for an extra room in your home to work, exercise or send the kids, you might find what you’re looking for in a new log cabin showroom that has just opened at Hanley’s Garden Centre.
From little garden getaways (from €1,490) all the way up to a premium four-bedroom family home for around €70k, each Loghouse cabin is handcrafted in Scandinavian pine and comes with a written ten-year guarantee.
Oh… and they would look frikkin’ adorable in your back garden.
The company specialises in building residential log cabins that are specifically designed for the Irish climate, with damp proof membranes, special foundations, extra window seals, trims and sealants to protect against the weather.
They’re super cosy too; research has shown that log homes retain 40% more heat than block or brick.
The finish can be rustic wood or your choice of a contemporary look. They’ll even build you a custom design if you have your own ideas.
But what about planning?
According to Loghouse: “The general rule regulating log cabins in Ireland states that any building under 25 sq m and less than 3.9m high to the side or rear of your house doesn’t require planning permission. But since the local rules might slightly differ we highly recommend customers check with their local authorities prior to purchase.
“For larger log cabins planning permission is necessary.”
The Cork City showroom will be having a Grand Opening event at Hanley’s of Cork Garden Centre, on Saturday, March 21st so you can see them in real life then.
