Residential Cabin Alex is the perfect example of what should be an excellent log cabin for your garden or any other place covered with natural elements such as trees and flowers. One of the main advantages of this cabin is that it can be used for several purposes.
If you install in the garden outside your home, the Residential Cabin Alex becomes even more useful. It can be utilised as a guesthouse to allow your guests the experience of living in a log cabin and enjoy the surrounding nature. Alternately, it can be used as a shed or a storeroom for garden tools. In addition, you can also use it as a summer home.
Made from the elegant and premium quality slow growing Nordic pine or Scandinavian spruce, the cabin offers efficient natural insulation to keep the interiors cool in summer. Another feature of this cabin is the ability to choose the number of rooms. It can be built according to your requirements, and you can decide whether you would like to have two or three rooms.
The uniqueness of its design isn’t just limited to the interior of the home. It also has a spacious veranda where you can sit and relax on a lazy afternoon reading a book or even taking a nap. You also have the option to install a mezzanine floor if you wish, which will further increase the area, meaning you can accommodate more people or things in the cabin.
Roof and Floor
The roof and floor of the house constitute 20mm thickness tongue and groove boards. For additional roof covering, roofing felt or bitumen shingles can be added, which further helps to improve the insulation. For the roof’s stability, 60mm roof joists are used.
