Usage Ideas for Timber Cabin

A small under 20m² back yard cabin is common to be used as a home office for 1 or more people. Plenty of room for several desks or a meeting table with a small kitchenette and bathroom. Get focussed in your own space, avoid paying commercial rent and increaase your productivity when working at home away from the TV and other distractions that occur continually.

This is a broad category. Visiting relatives from out of town, expanding families needing more room, teenage retreat, divorcee accommodation (it happens), even ‘Airbnb’ rentals or local traveling workers accommodation. Use for your own needs or rent it out as an income source. It’s common to use this accomodation for kids as they reach their 20’s to have their own independence, then when they do eventually leave home, you can rent out the space and earn rental income. There is always a use for a cabin once it is there.   

A great space for a pool table, or a big lounge and TV, so you can kick back and enjoy family and friends in a safe, casual and entertaining environment. And for the ladies, nothing beats this space for your own “She Shed” experience. It’s a great size for your gardening passion, or whatever you like doing. It’s really up to you.

Relive the glory days, or support your favourite team or sport, great for games rooms, to read or book, or entertain a bunch of guests. Whatever it is for you, stop dreaming and make it happen.  Nothing beats a dedicated space to relax and chill out surrounded by what’s important to you. If your current shed is full of “family items” and doesn’t look like changing anytime soon, enjoy a new dedicated cabin space and put the smile back on your face when you do what you love. 

Nothing beats a dedicated space to work on your favourite hobbies. If your want to have everything in its place, neat and organised, enjoy the new dedicated workspace and great size for your gardening passion or handyman skills. Whatever you like doing, It’s really up to you.
