What do you need to know about garden office or log cabin installations?
A garden office or log cabin can really be anything between a basic wooden structure to an insulated building featuring electricity, heating and even water. There is a huge variety in the designs and materials you can choose from, but typically a lot of tradesmen that offer installations are part of ‘specialist’ companies that can give you a lot of advice. The first thing you will need is a strict budget in place and a good idea of what you want out of your office or log cabin. A fully installed ‘office’ with electricity, interior decoration and so on will easily cost over £3,000. There are a few long-term money saving options, such as installation and glazed windows, but this very much depends on your budget. Depending on your ‘vision’ you may want to hire an architect or building designer, though a cheaper and faster alternative is buying a pre-designed model. Before spending anything get your project and property assessed, as this will not only highlight any prep work that needs doing but will also allow tradesmen to determine whether or not you will need planning permission before you can have a garden office or log cabin built.
When hiring tradesmen for a project like this it is important to look over their experience and qualifications. You will need several specialists for a well designed structure, including carpenters, electricians and so on, so you can save your time by hiring a ‘specialist’ company. Even so, ensure that all of your tradesmen have the right qualifications for the job, and that they have a good track record according to customer reviews from their previous jobs. Finally, make sure that they have adequate coverage against accidental damage and liabilities, and professional indemnity insurance for the design phase.
