Surrey-based Nordic Lodge imports timber from renewable Siberian forests to produce its garden offices, log homes and log cabins, some of them really quite large. Above is their Stockbroker garden office, a 6m x 8m x 4m log cabin on the outskirts of London with 160mm thick wall construction and a large veranda 6m x 1.8m as well as interior kitchen and bathroom. Below is a Surrey garden office build, stained blue to suit an adjacent building for an architect. The building is assembled on a horizontal concrete raft on sloping ground: again there are four rooms including kitchen, bathroom, reception and office.
