It depends of you.
If you order the bbq to go with it you are obviously having a year-round barbeque lodge at your use. Our clients use lodges as guest houses, at least one has started her yoga studio in a lodge, the smaller models are also popular as children’s playrooms – the list is endless. The lodge is precisely what you want it to be. A place to feel good.
Yes it can – and if you are good with DIY why don’t you do it yourself ?
Yes it can. Speak with your local electrician and plumber.
No, the roof is very steep. You can install a rainwater collection system if you want to.
If you follow a YouTube tutorial and have level-headed DIY friends to help the smallest model is up in less than a day. For the bigger one reserve a weekend.
Yes it can but it is hard work though !
You definitely need to have a good understanding of the structure and good DIY skills but it is totally doable. Remember that well thought out project is half done so do not rush it.
The elements can be carried through your house, they fit in from your door. Just make sure there is enough space to turn around corners.
That is up to you. Wood develops a beautiful silver hue when it ages naturally. On the other hand you might want to have your lodge customised with your favourite colours ?
No. A levelled, tightly back sand bed or similar is enough. The lodges arrive with self-supporting floors.
No but you need enough manpower and strong backs and arms.
Check first with your local council. The below offers a basic guideline in UK. In France go and speak with your mairie, explain in detail what and where you want to do and ask for their help.
