Joining the wildlife spotting flock? How a garden room can help you fly

Half a million people will be taking part in the world’s largest wildlife survey this weekend, the RSPB’s Big Garden Birdwatch.

Most will be peering out of their windows, craning their necks for an hour to spot different species in their back gardens. Some will be wrapping up warm and visiting their local park or public outdoor space.

The RSPB has been compiling the survey findings since 1979 to track how wildlife is faring.

We all know that spending time with nature benefits human health and wellbeing. As well as the sheer enjoyment of being amongst flora and fauna, experts cite reductions in stress and anxiety, and increased positive mood and self-esteem.

But during the winter months, it can take extra effort and woolly layers to get outside. Owning a garden room really helps to take the hard work out of being in the garden at this time of year. Many of our Norwegian Log customers tell us that building a garden room allows them to enjoy their home green space even more, no matter what the weather.

Customers Fin and Loz, who are the proud owners of a Contemporary Building from Norwegian Log, have cleverly positioned their solid log building at the end of their garden to take advantage of views of the surrounding countryside. “We come down here, switch on the music system, watch the wildlife in the field and then the sunset,” said Fin.

The entire front of the contemporary building is made from bi-fold double glazed doors allowing light to shine through and a clear outside vista from within, so ideal for sitting back in a comfortable sofa and watching the wildlife world go by. The natural insulation of wood means only a discreet single electric heater is needed even in the depths of winter to keep the room cosy and warm.

If you would like to find out how building a garden room can open up your garden space, then contact us. We might not be able to promise you a bird’s eye view of your garden plot but we can help you enjoy your garden even in the coldest months.

It's warm and it's cosy; it's solid and it's quiet. The fragrance of pine reminds you of Scandinavian forests and summer evenings. Your imagination starts to take you places. You imagine a wood burner, perhaps a desk or why not just some space to think?

Our show home is 31 years old, yet customers still say it looks and feels brand new. That's the quality of our workmanship and the materials. When you step into a Norwegian Log building you're stepping into a feeling and just like our buildings it's one that will last.
