Garden buildings have evolved over the years to such an extent that people now build ‘liveable sheds’ that they, or friends or family, sleep in from time to time. Some people even live in their sheds all year round! So, if you’re short on space in your main property, a backyard shed guest house may be the answer when loved ones stay over.
In particular, 28mm and 44m log cabins provide the perfect platform for a garden shed guest house. This is because they tend to be available in larger sizes than standard garden sheds and therefore offer more space – and potentially greater levels of comfort.
The best log cabins also use shiplap cladding and tight-fitting notch systems that allow no room for rain or wind – making them naturally better insulated.
To convert a log cabin shed to a guest house, you may need to think about adding modern conveniences, such as a supply of electricity. But as long as you follow building regulations and other legal procedures, you can make your garden shed guest house conversion a reality.
To find the perfect base for your guest room, take a look at the options below:
Tiger buildings are constructed with shiplap cladding, which is superior tongue & groove timber board with a flush-fit finish. Each solid plank is 12mm thick with scalloping to help prevent water ingress. A smooth, solid, strong barrier pre-treated to meet our high quality standards.
All Tiger sheds are made with tongue & groove timber boards throughout – no cheap and crumbly OSB board at all (unlike some companies we could mention). Our timber is sustainably sourced. We use slow grown European softwood, cut in our woodmill to a high grade.
Tiger garden buildings come with TigerFelt® as standard. This is a thicker, polyester-backed high-grade mineral felt to provide a reliable, weatherproof barrier with reduced wear and tear. Only premium quality roofing felt will do!
We use slow-grown timber in our framing to provide the sturdy support your shed needs. Sustainably sourced, it’s over an inch thick, and rounded for a smoother finish. Slow-grown timber is better quality, and the heavyweight 28x44mm thickness will help the building stand the test of time.
All Tiger buildings come with solid, coated steel fittings for a secure, elegant finish for your peace of mind. Unlike many competitors, all Tiger buildings come with a free door pull as standard.
Beware of imitations which use cheaper styrene plastic windows (which tend to ‘mist’ over time). All Tiger windowed sheds & summerhouse come with 3mm thick toughened glass as standard. This glazing is more shock and heat resistant than normal shed windows, making your Tiger all the more durable. TigerFlex® models also arrive with the glass pre-fitted, making assembly even easier!
We treat our timber with TigerSkin, a specially formulated preservative, developed over many years – for a non-greasy weatherproof seal. This pre-treatment applied to the wood and then carefully dried to give your shed an extra layer of protection 365 days a year.
Your Tiger garden building is simple to put together, using the helpful instructions available, and will look great on a firm & level base constructed from a suitably durable material. We also offer an installation service for all Tiger log cabins.
All Tiger buildings are made to exactly the same high standards, with exactly the same quality timber – so they get exactly the same market-leading Tiger 20 Year Guarantee. Tigers are built to last for decades with.
