A Tamar Cabin used as a Bespoke Garden Summerhouse

Tamar Cabin. An A frame cabin for summerhouse, garden cabin or home office _Life Space Cabins

This Tamar Cabin was built in our workshop in South Devon and delivered to site in one day 

Thames based clients Angela and Neil came across Life Space Cabins after seeing our feature in The Times Bricks & Mortar article and decided that our Tamar cabin design would fit their brief to provide a bright, well built summer house garden cabin that could be used year round. 

They had one important request… It had to be completed and installed in time for Angela’s important birthday celebrations. 

The Tamar is a classic A frame cabin with its high ceilings and painted timber clad interior it lends itself perfectly as an outside dining space as these clients were to use it for. They could throw open the doors on a balmy evening or retreat inside during the cooler months. 

Cabin Brief 

A cabin to be placed in the top corner of our garden which has open views onto farmland and the sunset each day which we would like to be able to enjoy particularly in the Summer. They envisaged opening the doors from the cabin onto decking where they would be able to sit with an evening sundowner drink. Inside the cabin they wanted a multi functional space to use for creative pursuits, dining and maybe some potting of plants.

Their Tamar Cabin was built in our workshop in South Devon and delivered to site in one day. 

Painted in Farrow and Ball Winborne White inside with an engineered oak floor the cabin meant it was a welcoming space from day one. The clients wanted exterior cladding to be painted in an elegant french grey colour to complement their surroundings. 

Our Tamar Cabin and Dart Cabin designs offer clients the choice of a predesigned cabin which has had all the thinking behind its design and construction and therefore the only variation comes in the site location and client specifications.

These cabins are manufactured off site in our workshop in South Devon and assuming the site can be accessed by a low bed HIAB truck we can install these cabins in just a day minimising onsite disruption and additional labour costs.
