Wendy initially approached us looking for a log cabin that would fit into an awkward wedge shaped garden. She liked the Lugarde Londen and although not perfect for her in layout or size, thought an “off the shelf” cabin was the only solution. After listening to her requirements and design ideas, we were able to suggest a Keops tailor made cabin to fit her wish list and budget!

We designed an “L” shaped cabin to maximise the garden space and increased the height to incorporate two loft areas. Inside, there is a large living space and we created two smaller rooms which Wendy has made into a kitchen area and a bathroom with shower. There is another separate room which has been furnished to make a super dining room, with glazed double doors to allow plenty of light.

Wendy painted the interior walls with a white opaque preservative which gives a lovely light airy feel and has furnished the cabin very tastefully. We think it looks super!

My little piece of heaven! Just wanted to say how pleased I am with my new tailor made cabin building. Your staff have been brilliant and made the whole operation go smoothly, with nothing being too much trouble.(The delivery driver had to climb a pole to strap my arched hedge out of the way to get the fork lift through!).

The team of cabin builders were amazing too, arriving at 7am (having travelled a couple of hours) and working really hard to complete the job. Just to think that I very nearly went with another company and bought something “off the shelf” that wasn’t really suitable to my needs.

I have painted the outside and will be starting on the inside – will send you some pics of the gorgeousness when I’m finished! Its going to be a studio, a teenage den, a weekend stay for guests, a party room…the list goes on.
