The Folly: A Contemporary Small Cabin 

The Folly epitomises our simply beautiful group. As an attractive, no-nonsense cabin it is perfect for those intending to use it as an escape of a more practical need. 

This cabin has a contemporary outside skin created using black painted timber slats to accentuate the cube form. The sloping roof of The Folly is concealed behind a slatted parapet.

Designed to comply with standard permitted development guidelines the materials for this small space are discrete and durable to suit either a rural or urban location.

Window and door locations can be varied to suit your site and needs.


Built to comply within permitted development. The Folly can be positioned in most properties with little disruption. This space can be built on or off site depending on access.

Dimensions: 3.5m (W) x 2.5 (D).


The Folly can either be made onsite with little impact or will be prefabricated at our workshops and brought to site and erected there. It will have provision for power that can be implemented on site. The cabin is build using treated softwood (FSC) and well insulated.


£POA. Prices will be plus VAT and exclusive of planning and building regulation fees, service connections, foundations, delivery. Subject to access and client specification

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.
