With this, they can spend more time outdoors with you while enjoying the breezy fresh air, especially during warmer weather. 

Transforming your shed into a pet paradise is also a smart move if you’ve got an unruly family pet. They’ll have a place to play or sleep without disturbing you, which is imperative if you work from home.

Tip: To create a spacious and sheltered environment for your pets, decorate a playpen for them with comfy blankets and squidgy toys. Don’t forget a bowl of water and some snacks!

Just like garden sheds, log cabins also make an excellent storage solution for storing your outdoor equipment and gardening tools safe and sound. You don’t have to convert your cabin building into something new. 

All you have to do is to clear up the space, especially if it’s cluttered, and add some shelves and boxes to keep the storage building neat and tidy. If your log cabin is large enough, hide less attractive or bulky items, such as your children’s bikes, mowers, your home and garage clutter, and even holiday decorations like Christmas trees and more. Not only will this provide these stuff with a new home, but this also will lessen the distraction from the beauty of your home.

34. Yoga Studio

100-cabin-transformation-ideas-35-dance-studio

A log cabin dance studio tucked away at the bottom of your garden could be just what you need to hone your dancing skills and feel the beat without having to worry about who’s watching you or bothering anyone.

With a little woodwork and a handy know-how, you can treat yourself with a blind that will keep you comfortable during the coldest days of the hunting season.

When it comes to the size of your shooting house, this depends on the number of hunters using it at one time. If it’s only for you or for two, a small log cabin will do. The larger the number, the bigger the building you need.

100-cabin-transformation-ideas-55-toy-cabin-storage

56. Dog House

100-cabin-transformation-ideas-57-dedicated-space-for-bicycles-and-gears

While bikes are often our pride and joy, they’re also an awkward object to store, and when not lent properly against a surface, they can be easily knocked over. If you’re fed up with seeing your children’s bikes and bicycle accessories being scattered all over your garden space or patio area, you might want to consider buying a storage unit.

60. Storm Shelter

100-cabin-transformation-ideas-62-camping-cabin

Camping is a combined tranquillity and adventure type of outdoor activity, providing you with the ideal opportunity to unwind in style. Not only a camp out will let you spend quality time with your family and friends, but it is also good for your soul.

While staying at the campsite also offers a much-needed relaxation, a staycation camping or backyard camping can also benefit your soul from the virtues that nature emits. If your family and friends enjoy camping in your back garden, take a break from using a tent and starting opting for a lifelong camp out cabin.

This is particularly ideal if you own a piece of land that’s perfect for camping. Compared to the usual tents, a camping cabin guarantees you with a more secure and protected environment against the inclement weather. Not only that but this also saves up your time to set up a tend every time.

63. Trash Cabin

If you don’t have some wheelie trash bins, you can still hide those insightly trashs of yours and keep them secured and away from the scavengers with a trash shed out of your log cabin. Your trash cabin could also act as a convenient spot to keep your outdoor cleanup tools, such as brooms, outdoor dust pans, and yard waste bags.

By placing your pile of trash inside a log cabin can also improve the appearance and appeal of your property. As long as you have a sturdy mini cabin building, it can hide your waste while keeping it organised.

No sight of trash outdoors means a clean property. I mean, who doesn’t want that, right?

When designing your music therapy room, make sure there’s enough natural light and at the same time, less distraction. Thus, it’s recommended to place the windows high along the wall, or you can attach curtains or blinds so you can loosen up in a peaceful manner.

The good thing about a music therapy room is that it will make you feel like you have your own home music studio.

66. Outdoor Living Space

100-cabin-transformation-ideas-68-pet-grooming-business

Most pets are treated as part of the family. Thus, their well-being as well as their grooming become an important aspect of every pet owner. This also can be the starting point where owners can go and come up with their own pet grooming salon business to cater to this need.

Pet grooming salons are not much different from beauty salons and spas where humans go to for pampering. Generally, a pet grooming service includes: bathing, hair drying, trimming and styling, hair brushing, nail cutting, and even pet massage.

If you’re thinking about starting your own pet grooming business, a log cabin converted into a pet salon will make a profitable solution. With this, you can help make pets prettier by giving them a shampoo and hair trim, clipping their nails and styling their fur.

Although pet grooming is not an easy job and requires experience, if you’re an animal lover and have great people with skills, this business idea might be a good fit for you!

100-cabin-transformation-ideas-70-rental-space-airbnb

Log cabin rentals are one of the best options for starting a new business, especially if you live in a popular area with magnificent views. You can use your log cabin/s for business as an Airbnb while earning extra income!

71. Farmer’s Market Booth

100-cabin-transformation-ideas-72-beekeeper

Another small business option you can consider is raising bees for honey production. Beekeeping is a business opportunity with social, economic, and ecological benefits that only requires minimal time, labor and resources.

Beekeeping isn’t just about collecting honey. Getting to know your bees, including their behaviors and their response to the natural environment around them are part of this fulfilling career. Speaking of the environment, it’s crucial to provide your bees with the ideal setting for them to forage.

Don’t have a massive land for them to thrive? You can invest in a log cabin building and use the space to house your bees, and start a colony while earning money.

73. Car Detailing and Electronics Repairs

100-cabin-transformation-ideas-75-recycling-service

You can use the outdoor building as a working area where you can sort out the collected items without worrying about ruining the beauty of your backyard. Whether it’s a used clothes store, scrap metal collector, or junk collection service, a log cabin is a great start for your small recycling business.

76. Garden Getaway

What we like about garden buildings is that they can be utilised all year round. Regardless of the weather outside, you can sit undercover and in warmth to relax and enjoy the natural beauty of your garden.

Adding a hammock or a hanging chair can be your chill-out spot, making you feel cosy and relaxed in the comfort of your cabin getaway. You and your family can spend your summer hanging in the shade while reading, relaxing, and enjoying the fresh outdoor air.

What’s more, log cabins also make a fantastic, cosy hideaway when the cold weather begins to settle and the snow starts creeping into the weather forecast. For a better heat retention in the wintering months, insulation is key. 

You may also want to consider installing a heater in your garden building, though do bear in mind that this may require having electricity in your log cabin to begin with.

77. Spa and Massage Room

100-cabin-transformation-ideas-79-filming-room

Whether you’re planning to take your content production up a notch or you just want to have your private space for your filming passion, setting up a studio to record high-quality contents from home may seem daunting at first.

Prepare your log cabin building by cleaning and tidying up the space. If it needs painting, you can opt for white to render a bright and clean filming space. As for the lights, natural lighting is very flattering and can drastically improve the quality of your studio and video.

If possible, instead of investing in a soft-box lighting, you can position yourself facing the window or consider adding more windows to the outbuilding. You can read this 100-cabin-transformation-ideas-82-pumkpin-patch

100-cabin-transformation-ideas-86-backyard-coffee-shop

100-cabin-transformation-ideas-88-sewing-weaving-studio

Whether you’re a professional designer looking for a perfect space to organise your sewing materials and finished designs, or you just got your first sewing machine and you want to hone your skills—a log cabin can act as your dedicated spot to boost and stimulate your productivity and creativity.

A large log cabin with big windows can provide you enough space to display your latest creations as well as plenty of natural light and a sitting area for your customers. A small fitting room will come handy, especially if you have customers or models come in for fittings.

Regardless of the size of your log cabin, consider investing in a sewing kit organiser to keep small items in place. At the end of the day, it is the small stuff that ends up making a big difference in workflow. So keep your sewing studio as neat and organised as possible.

89. Chemical Storage

One of the best ways to store chemicals safely at home is to put them in storage, preferably away from the kitchen or the kitchen sink—if possible, outdoors as long as you have a log cabin that is ready to use for storing.

Try to keep the chemicals you normally use at home to a minimum then the rest, mainly the flammable and toxic ones, in your cabin storage. Add shelves to organise everything in one place. If you will use containers, make sure you label everything.

You may also keep your spare cleaning essentials like gloves, mask and goggles, in the log cabin to free up the space of your kitchen sink. Also, do not mix or combine hazardous chemicals in one container as they can become more hazardous. Let alone the violent reactions like poisonous gases or even explosions that may occur.

Tip: Ventilate your log cabin as chemicals and their containers have the potential to release dangerous quantities of vapours or gases. These vapours quickly accumulate and present a considerable hazard if left unventilated.

90. Plant Gallery

100-cabin-transformation-ideas-91-hosting-room

Our homes can be chaotic sometimes—with kids playing around, cluttered space, to name a few—it is not just at leisure or accessible for entertainment. As much as we want to invite our family or friends over, there is no room for them to lounge.

This is where having a log cabin in your backyard come in handy. This type of garden building is too lovely to use it only for storage purposes. With its visual appeal alone, you can convert it into a hosting room where your guests can gather, sit, and enjoy a glass of wine in a peaceful environment.

You can decorate the space with homey decorations so your guests will feel cosy and homelike. Add televisions, comfy couch, dining tables and chairs, and a mini kitchen and bathroom to complete your hosting room set-up. Of course, do not forget some entertainment pieces like board games, Xbox, or DVDs for some movie marathon.

If possible, you can create a small bedroom in case some of your guests need to stay for the night.

92. Food Hut

There are a variety of ways to provide extra entertainment and awesomeness to your outdoor parties. Other than the infamous BBQ grill, which is something that a summer outdoor party would not be complete without, how about adding a mini food hut in the corner of your back garden?

If the log cabin’s space allows you, you can put the grill inside the food hut along with your cooking utensils, glassware, party essentials, and decorations. You may also add a menu board on the wall to give your fellow some hints on should they expect throughout the celebration.

Or maybe you are planning to start a street food catering business. A log cabin transformed into a food hut sure makes a cost-effective way to make your most exciting food scene and let people around get a taste of your latest pop-up kitchen dishes.

You can place it in the comfort of your backyard space, particularly if it is open and accessible. This is an excellent way to send signals to your neighbours that you have fresh dishes on the menus.

Or you can rent out a space near the park or somewhere with a large crowd to attract potential customers.

Have the ‘great outdoors’ keep calling for you and your family? Looking for low-cost ways to get away from the city and go on a little adventure with your friends?

Motorhomes or Recreational Vehicles (RV) can be your adventure companion and go for a long weekend break on whim. You don’t have to worry about where you and your family will stay because with an RV, you already know you have a roof, a dry bed, a place to eat and play while on the road.

But if an RV is out of your budget, you can put your log cabin on wheels instead and take that dream vacation! Transform your log cabin into how a motorhome works and build it with space in mind to provide enough room for the mini kitchen, dining area, bunk beds, and a room to store almost anything.

You can store perishable foods like canned goods, bottled water and sodas in the exterior cabinet along with everyday items, such as spare clothes, blankets, pillows, toilet paper rolls, and some cleaning supplies. Do not forget the camping and other outdoor equipment, including games and toys.

This task may cost you at first but it will be cost-effective in the long run. It won’t be easy building it from scratch too, that is for sure. So having professional help or expert assistance is recommended.

95. Little Marrakech

Marrakech is a peculiar yet stunning city that renders beautiful architecture and bright colours. Its history and culture are enough to allure people in the former imperial city.

No wonder why many people are starting to get inspired to decorate their humble homes that echoes the beauty of Marrakech. If you are one of them, what is stopping you from creating a Moroccan vibe in your garden? 

Brace the smell of spices in your garden and make yourself feel like you have entered another world by converting your log cabin into a little Marrakech! Furnish the cabin building with cushions, throws and wall hangings, and add a spot for meditation or even yoga to create a relaxing atmosphere.

Don’t forget the bohemian decorations, lanterns, patterns, sophisticated accents, and any pieces that can flawlessly execute the Moroccan decor trend. Is possible, invest in an Arabic and Berber carpets, display a Moroccon style teapots and teacups, argan oil and products, spices, scarves, and many more!

Trust us; this kind of log cabin transformation will give you a room to rejuvenate your mind, body and soul.

96. Country Pursuits

A den dedicated to country pursuits can be achieved with a log cabin. With all the mess gone from the house, you can finally dedicate time and space to you and your family’s hobby.

You can keep your hiking gear, fishing tackle, camping supplies, climbing equipment, and other outdoor essentials in the den. If you have some basic horseback riding equipment or your RV essentials, you can also keep them in the den.

Add storage cabinets, shelves or racks inside the den to display all of your souvenirs you got from each country you and your family visited. It could be leather goods, tea pots, laces, ornaments, a variety of postcards, whiskeys, wine, traditional masks, ceramics, just to name a few.

Seeing all your souvenirs in one place is a gratifying experience and a memorable way to remember all the places you visited, keeping the memory of your trip alive.

Since most of the mentioned equipment is quite expensive, security should be your number one priority. We recommend you to include a heavy duty sliding bolt and 7 level lock, and security screws.

97. Press Box

Garden buildings are so versatile that they can be even utilised in the sports fields. For one, as press boxes. The press box is where announcers and commentators go to oversee the game, and usually photographers and fingers as well.

Just like the sports dugout that we have talked about earlier, you can use your log cabin unit/s as press boxes. They make a great alternative to traditional press boxes and are ideal for small stadiums like high school football fields.

They can be built multiple stories high, as well, offering a great view of the field while providing extra space to have a garage below for commentators to park.

98. Winter Hideout

Dreaming of launching your own rocket and making your way into space? Work in NASA or maybe build your very own space task group? Whether it is a hobby or something that you believe will help you hone your wicked skills and expertise, then a backyard space station sounds like an ‘out of this world’ plan!

You can decorate the log cabin the way how the International Space Station (ISS) looks like or a NASA-inspired working place, or customise your own space station that will suit your needs. Add computer screens on the walls that show the view of the earth, control booths, and a  clear cabinet to keep your spacesuit.

A bookshelf will also look good to showcase your favourite science and math books, including some space-related books. You may also consider opting for a space cabin style for your home office!

Along with your typical office essentials, you can display a globe, an astronaut figurine, a picture of the solar system, or anything that will make you feel that you are in space—the possibilities are endless, so is the universe!
