In essence, your log cabin extension can take on any form you desire – whether it’s a functional kitchen, a luxurious bathroom, a cozy living room, a dedicated home gym, or any other imaginative space you can conceive. For homes seeking additional space, a log cabin extension represents an ideal and versatile solution.
The Insulation and Temperature Control in Log Cabin Extensions
Our log cabin extensions prioritise comfort and climate control. They feature complete insulation, maintaining a cozy atmosphere in cold weather and ensuring a pleasant coolness during warmer seasons. Additionally, all windows and doors are double or triple glazed to provide excellent insulation.
To enhance your comfort further, heating systems can be seamlessly integrated into the extension, and comprehensive guttering and downpipes protect it from the elements. In fact, you might discover that your log cabin glulam extension is not only warmer but also drier and more comfortable than the original structure.
Connecting to mains electricity simplifies lighting solutions, and optional windows can be added to introduce additional natural light, brightening up your extended space.
What is the Maximum Log Cabin Size Allowed Without Requiring Planning Permission?
In United Kingdom, the general guideline for a standalone log cabin is that it doesn’t require planning permission if its size is under 25 square meters and its height is less than 4 meters. Keep in mind that these regulations may vary by local authority, so it’s advisable to verify them in advance. However, when it comes to extensions, the rules are somewhat different, irrespective of the construction material. To be classified as an extension, the structure must be directly attached to your primary residence. In this scenario, the extension’s floor area should not exceed 40 square meters (assuming no prior extensions have been made), and its height should not surpass that of the connected house. This typically offers ample room for an additional living space. If you intend to build a larger extension, obtaining planning permission is an option. We are here to assist you in liaising with your local council and guiding you through the planning process.
Is Permanent Residence in a Log Cabin Possible Without Planning Permission?
When a structure is separate from your primary residence, a log cabin is typically regarded as a temporary arrangement and is not deemed suitable for permanent residency. Conversely, an extension is viewed differently, as it’s considered an integral part of the main home, designed for everyday living. Detached log cabin buildings are often utilized as temporary lodging for guests and visitors, which does not constitute permanent occupancy. If you intend to establish an independent log cabin rather than an extension, it’s advisable to consult with the local authority to ensure that your intended usage complies with regulations and doesn’t necessitate special permissions. If your plan involves constructing a log cabin for permanent living, you must also adhere to building regulations and take into account any additional relevant rules and considerations.
