Whether your family is growing or you are taking care of your elderly parents, you may find your home is too small to accommodate your expanding family. Adding to your home can be expensive and moving may be out of the question if your credit is questionable. Fortunately, you can expand the size of your house and provide space for everyone by purchasing a prefabricated garden building.
Garden Building Styles
Prefabricated garden buildings come in a variety of styles and sizes. You can find buildings consisting of one large room, or you can also choose from multi-room garden buildings to use as a small home for your aging parents or an adult child. Some manufacturers even make two-story structures that can be used as a second home by adding plumbing and wiring for electricity.
While the prefabricated buildings come with assembly instructions so you are able to save money by putting them together yourself, you can also hire a contractor to assemble one for you. Most garden buildings can be assembled in one or two days, so you can quickly add an addition to your home over the weekend with ease. If you plan to add plumbing and electrical wiring, you will need to hire licensed contractors so the work it is done to code.
Uses for Garden Buildings
If you don’t need extra room for an expanding family, you may still find good uses for a garden building. If you have a pond or pool in your garden, you can use a small garden building as a waterside cabana to change clothes in so you don’t drip water in your house. Select a style with French doors and add furniture so you can have a place to relax after swimming or to soak up the sun on warm summer days.Many people need space for a home office, but if you have a small house, then you may not have any privacy while you’re trying to work. By adding a garden building to your backyard, you can create a home office with complete privacy, proving garden buildings to be versatile. Many models have windows on the side walls and the doors, so it allows in enough light to work in during the day without needing to be dependent on artificial electric lights.
Another use for garden buildings designed like rustic log cabins is to create a holiday getaway for yourself, and your friends or family. Find a small lakeside lot or a small lot near the forest and assemble a garden building on it so you have an ideal place to escape to on the weekends and during work holidays. A multi-room log cabin will provide space for beds and a small kitchen so you don’t have to sleep on the ground in a tent.
