The housing market is in a most disorganised state at the moment, moving to a bigger property is expensive and risky so you may wish to consider other options to increase the space in your home. These include conservatries, house extensions and garden buildings. Log cabins are the more elegant option from the above and provide plenty of space without the extended mess of building work or the complex legal/government problems associated with housing extensions.
Your first task is to decide exactly what you want from your log cabin, is it a place for additional storage and somewhere to relax in? Is it going to be a modern office complete with electricity supply and water? Is it going to be an airy gym to keep your fitness levels high and your house free of cumbersome, noisy fitness equipment? Whatever your ambitions you need to define some parameters first. You need to decide if you need an electric supply, water supply or just the space and level ground to construct it on. A level base is an essential part of constructing a log cabin, make sure that if you are building the cabin yourself you have the best base possible and that it is as level as you can get it, constructing a cabin on unsteady or uneven ground could result in problems later.

If you are not constructing the log cabin immediately then waterproof storage should be arranged, at the very least a sheet that will fully cover all pieces and prevent rain water getting in to unprotected cracks and seals. Be extremely careful handling all pieces, you don
