We received a fantastic tweet over the weekend from Chrissy Brown. She told us that her Dunster House log cabin was a finalist in the Shed of the Year 2015 competition! We immediately popped over to the website and were astounded by how fantastic Chrissy’s cabin looks. Her customer reviews was glowing too!
In Chrissy’s own words
After visiting my accountant in his garden office I instantly had shed envy. I knew I had to get a garden office despite the fact my garden is not very big. All logic went out of the window, I just had to have one and when I get this feeling I don’t stop until it happens! I set about researching log cabins, starting off looking for the cheapest one I could find . I was even looking at second hand ones – I love a bargain. But then considered the time it would take to dismantle. Then scratch your head trying to work out what bit goes where when home. Ultimately I thought it actually is not probably going to be cost effective.
I also thought spending a bit more for a better quality one (slow grown spruce, thicker walls, floor and ceiling, insulation and double glazing) would actually pay off in the long term. So I popped along to Dunster House to take a look and walked out of there as a brand new owner of a 5x3m log cabin! A few weeks later all the bits were in my back garden waiting to be put together and the rest as they say is history!

I actually set out to move my office from the smallest bedroom in the house to a larger area. However what I have in fact done is create an oasis of calm and a place for escapism in a hectic world. Who would have thought a home office could be such a place.
Also the project has also given me my mojo back. I was just trundling along in life and had got a bit lazy. This project has reignited me and got me off my backside and out in the elements. Getting lovely paint streaks in my hair and creating great tribal war paint all over my body, broken nails to boot and rashes on hands from wood preservative! It’s reawakened my creativity with new ideas buzzing around my head. In the mornings I can’t wait to get up at the crack of dawn (I’m not joking, I’m a bit of an insomniac) to work on and in my beautiful new haven!
Shed life – you can’t knock it!
