The Riverside Summer House Cabin

One of the most popular cabins the Riverside Summer House Cabin is broken into two spaces.

An insulated enclosed space, designed to be a summer house style retreat on cooler days, this space is fully insulated using 125mm Structurally Insulated Panel or SIPs for short.

Outside there is the benefit of an oak framed covered veranda with decking for alfresco dining. This area gives reassurance and protection from Britain’s inclement weather. 


Planning will be dependent on the location you wish to place the cabin. Life Space Cabins are able to give guidance on whether the insulated summer house cabin is likely to need planning permission.


The timber frame will be made off site by one of our skilled carpenters and then brought for a swift build alongside the other cabin components onsite


£POA prices will be +vat and exclusive of planning and building regulation fees, service connections, foundations, delivery installation. Subject to access and client specification.

Get in touch to discuss your project.


Life Space Cabins specify the materials used to build the The Riverside Summer House Cabin. The materials are chosen for durability and aesthetics that will suit any context where it is placed.  The insulated summer house comes as standard using these materials 
  • Structure: Oak Frame 
  • Insulation: SIPPS panels 
  • External: Rough Sawn UK Larch 
  • Internal walls: Painted Softwod Tongue and Groove
  • Windows/Door: Rationel (double glazed)

We specify fittings and fixtures from leading brands that we work with such as Rationel windows, Clearview stoves and Lindab guttering. We can tweak the specification as required though the cost may vary. Grains, textures and colours may vary from those shown.


Customise the Riverside by adding an enclosed storage area to the rear of the cabin. We recognise that by adapting a design and introducing you to further options it will give you the flexibility to tailor the aesthetics and functionality of the space and ensure its specific to your project.

Simple design amendments can often be undertaken for a small charge, although changes that affect the structure, will result in re-engineering and remodelling the design will have a larger impact on the final design and build costs.

Life Space Cabins Service 

We specialise in the design and build of amazing smaller spaces. We like to take responsibility and have fun with each of our projects.

Each project will come with a varying need for project management, we can take care of the whole project or agree on a suitable package of works for your budget.

As standard Life Space Cabins will offer guidance on helping you choose the right cabin for your site, plus light-touch guidance on planning permission. We can come to your site and give an appraisal which can cover market demand (rental), access, site location, service infrastructure, engineering and independent planning advice (from one of our expert consultants).

We will always make you aware if your project costs are likely to extend beyond the standard. 

The best thing to do is call us on 01364 705057 or contact us to chat through your ideas and to see what is possible.
