One of the best relaxation techniques to reduce stress is hydrotherapy.

Choosing the right log cabin

If you’d like to set up a hot tub log cabin, the two most important things to take care of are a high-quality log cabin and a hydrotherapy hot tub. To choose a log cabin for such a purpose, you must pay attention to the quality of the timber structure, the size, and the design. In terms of the quality, a home spa area is an investment that should serve you for a long time, therefore, pay attention to the timber and construction system used for the model you like, to make sure it will be stable and durable enough. The second aspect to consider is the size – the log cabin must be big enough for the hot tub. You also have to decide if you’d like to have an extra room in the building, where to set up a lounge or a sauna. Lastly, while looking for the right log cabin, evaluate what kind of design would be a better fit for your home spa concept. Maybe it’s a log cabin with a canopy, where to have a glass of wine after the water procedures or maybe a log cabin with glass sliding walls, so you can slide the wall open end enjoy your garden?

Log cabin insulation

If you have found a log cabin that meets your requirements in terms of quality, size, and design, the next thing to consider is the insulation. With an insulated log cabin, you will be able to enjoy the hot tub regardless of the weather. A proper insulation will keep the structure cool in the summer, while warm and dry in the winter. Therefore, before purchasing a log cabin, make sure it’s suitable for wall, roof, and floor insulation. In addition, remember to build a quality log cabin base – this will help with the longevity of your log cabin!

Choose a hot tub

When you have found the right log cabin, it’s time to choose the hot tub. Depending on your budget and wishes, you can opt for either a jacuzzi or a hot tub with many different features and settings.

High-quality vs. low-quality garden building. How to know if a garden building is a good investment.

When it comes to choosing the right garden house, the options offered by manufacturers are unlimited. This applies both to the size and design, as well as the timber and construction systems used for the garden buildings, making it really difficult to choose a timber structure that is worth investing in. If you are looking for a garden building which will last you for years and, of course, will look as good as new, you have to pay attention to the following features: the quality of timber, the construction system, doors, windows, roof and flooring. How to distinguish between high-quality and low-quality garden houses? Keep reading this article to find it out!

The quality of timber

Timber structures offer many advantages – low cost, fast construction, energy efficiency etc. However, whether you are looking for a storage shed or a garden log cabin guest house, the quality of timber is the first thing you have to pay attention to. Only garden buildings made of the highest quality timber will last for years without splitting and cracking over the time. Therefore, before purchasing a garden building, find out if the model is made of softwood (preferably spruce wood) and if the timber is kiln dried to approx. 14 – 16 % moisture content.

Construction systems

Other important quality indicators are outstanding wind and water resistance, strength and durability, as well as easy assembly. People often choose a particular construction system depending on the visual appearance – if you like the look of overlapping corner connections, you will choose the log cabin construction system. However, a construction system of a timber structure affects much more, including wind and water resistance, strength and durability and assembly time. The most innovative construction systems allow assembling summerhouses, gazebos and timber garages without screws or nails!

Doors, windows, roof and flooring

When choosing a garden building, in addition to the quality of the timber and construction system, also pay attention to the quality of doors, windows, roof and flooring. High-quality doors, windows, roof and flooring are more durable and lasts longer, providing the necessary insulation and security, as well as enhancing the look of the garden building for years.

How to distinguish between high- quality and low-quality garden buildings? Only the highest quality garden buildings, will have every detail thought of for your comfort. To find the highest quality garden building for your property, check out the range of luxury summerhouses and log cabins at

Not a fan of crowded public swimming pools? Set up a swimming pool in your own garden by building!

Have you ever thought about quitting your water workout because of how crowded your local swimming pool is? Maybe you have always dreamed to turn your garden into a relaxing oasis for your friends and family? Turn your garden into a private spa with a swimming pool under a canopy or in a garden building to enjoy both – private water workout sessions and relaxing retreats all year long. All garden makeovers, including the installation of a swimming pool and the wooden structure, require proper preparation and planning, therefore, keep reading this article to find inspiration on how you can change your garden and your workout routine by installing a swimming pool in your garden.

Use your swimming pool all year long

One of the main benefits of a private swimming pool is that you can use it whenever you want it! Literally whenever – even when it’s raining or snowing! With a little help from a wooden structure, you can significantly change the way you use your garden swimming pool. Build a canopy to keep leaves and bugs out of your pool or erect a veranda with sliding glass walls to turn your garden swimming pool into one that you can use all year round.

Benefits of a garden building with sliding glass walls

A garden building or a veranda with glass walls is a great addition to a garden in terms of design. However, properly insulated, this wooden structure can significantly change the way you use your garden swimming pool:

– A closed structure ensures that the water in the pool cools down less quickly;

– You can swim all year long – weather conditions won’t affect your water workout session;

– The sliding glass walls can be opened as soon as the weather is getting warmer.

When it comes to finding the perfect canopy or veranda for your swimming pool, it is important to pay attention to the size and the functionality of the structure. Perhaps you want to set up a gym area as well or maybe you need some additional storage space?

Are you ready to turn your swimming pool into one that you can use all year round, but not completely sure about the right design? Take a look at and create your bespoke design with 3D-Configurator.
