Tiny houses, yurts, pods and garden retreats can be found in a variety of styles. A quick internet search for these small outdoor buildings yields an incredible diversity of designs. These Instagram-ready buildings may be fun to look at, but they also serve very important purposes for the people who own and use them every day. Crafting, cooking, relaxing, reading – these are just some of the purposes served by these buildings. These outbuildings can be constructed from various siding materials.
The Extra Special Space of Your Own
Outdoor buildings are becoming increasingly commonplace. The number of possibilities seems endless:
- Summer houses
- Brew houses
- Reading escapes
- Play rooms
- A Woman’s Shed, or She Shed (the female answer to the Man Cave)
- Glamping cabins
- Crafts studios
These separate spaces fulfill a variety of needs. Many people find inspiration in a space separate from their living quarters, with distractions like house chores and televisions eliminated. Other outdoor buildings are practical, such as storage for art supplies, or a room in which to make your own home-brewed beer.
Whatever your reason for wanting an extra building separate from your home, there is a wide variety of designs and materials available to you. Once you’ve built the structure, you can truly make the space your own by decorating the interior.
Rustic, Charming Faux-Log Exteriors
Especially in a state like Colorado, log cabins are in demand. Even tiny houses are being built with log-style exteriors. Your outdoor building should fulfill your aesthetic wishes, and for many people, that means log siding.
A log-sided shed or outbuilding creates a special type of charm, and looks equally at-home in a mountainous or rural setting as it does in a large, suburban backyard. But the whole point of these outbuildings is to provide you with a space to complete the projects you’re passionate about, and real logs can steal away some of that time because of the upkeep required. Every 2-3 years, logs generally require re-staining, resealing and other maintenance.
Trulog™ faux-log siding can be easily applied to any structure, large or small. The siding comes in 12-foot-long lengths, 9 inches high. Chinking lines and imitation hew lines create a realistic log appearance, but do not require log upkeep.
