5 tips to make the most of your new garden barn

Providing you with additional outdoor space, a garden barn can serve many functions all year round. From a games room for all the family to enjoy to a quiet place to work from home; here are our top five tips to make the most of your beautifully bespoke, oak frame garden barn.


1. A garden barn come games room

A spot of light competition is always amusing and a great way to spend an evening while we’re at home. A garden barn come games room is, therefore, an excellent way to bring everyone together. Create a dedicated area in your garden barn for game play, entertaining and more.

2. An office

As an alternative to a games room, your new oak frame garden barn can create the perfect, peaceful setting to work from home.

When working remotely, some of us find it helps to have an office that’s completely separate to our home. So, take a moment to enjoy the fresh air of a new day while strolling down to the bottom of your garden to work, with a delicious coffee in hand.

3. A hobby room

If you’re the creative type who loves to make handmade gifts, a timber frame garden barn can provide a retreat to indulge in your favourite hobby. Whether that’s a sewing room for novelty knits or a creative workshop space, escape the hustle and bustle of a busy household: you never know, it may even become a business!


4. Nibbles with your friends

Once we can safely return to our daily routines, your garden barn can offer a unique setting to reunite with friends for either a special occasion, or just because. Your lovely, bespoke outbuilding will be the talk of the town and such a gathering may even become a regular occasion.

5. Your very own private local

Bring the bar to your home with a garden barn and create your very own private local. Invite guests to enjoy a few glasses of fizz or maybe some of your home-brewed cider. Your oak outbuilding will also be great for containing party noise when it gets late.
