The Rise and Rise of BBQ Cabin Fever.
As the we wade through yet another freezing and soaking wet winter we must dream of long balmy summer evenings to keep our spirits up and our minds off the persistent deluge that so many of us have faced over the last months.
The reality is that summer might not really give us the respite we dream of, whilst temperatures have been rising so has rainfall and we must surely accept now that our climate is somewhat different then it was some years ago.
Step forth the garden feature that estate agents up and down the country will be adding to their listing sheets this year and in years to come. The BBQ Cabin.
Originating from Finland, the BBQ cabin is now also becoming popular all over the UK. Loads of people in the UK enjoy a BBQ during the summer, but the weather can be unpredictable. A barbecue cabin can offer an alternative to huddling under an umbrella or crowding into a garage should the weather take an unpleasant turn.
BBQ Cabin Uses?
BBQ cabins can be surprisingly spacious, with sizes ranging from seven meters squared to twenty-five meters squared. They have solid wooden floors and double glazed windows, with a seating area around the edge of the cabin. The grill is normally in the centre of the cabin, with a flue to allow the smoke out. They are often decorated with traditional Lapland furnishings and handcrafts, with some items included and others available as optional extras. The smaller cabins can seat up to ten people, but a large cabin can seat in excess of thirty-five people. For those who enjoy outdoor entertaining, a cabin could be the ideal solution to the unpredictable weather.
As well as being able to entertain guests and hold parties in the cabin, families who own a BBQ cabin can also use it for overnight visitors. Depending on the size of cabin chosen, there will be room to sleep between two and six people. The cabins can also be used as a home office, a children’s play area or just as a peaceful retreat.
Buying a cabin could be preferable to building an extension if additional space is wanted, as there will less work and upheaval involved. Cabins do not normally require planning permission as most are less than four metres high. Not only will a cabin offer an alternative the inconvenience of building work, it will provide additional space with charm and character.
It is not only families that enjoy entertaining who are buying BBQ cabins, they are also used by glamping sites and holiday home complexes. Businesses can use the cabins for corporate events and entertaining clients, offering a unique experience for employees and business associates.
