If you have a teenager then you’ll know just how much their independence means to them. They have a yearning to live by themselves and find their own way in the world, however they probably won’t have the funds to do so yet! More and more families are choosing to install a garden lodge in their outside space so that their teenagers have somewhere separate from the house to live, without the costly overheads of doing so elsewhere. Read on to find out more.
What is a garden lodge?
A garden lodge is a really useful space for your garden. It can serve all manner of uses, for example it could be a workshop, a shed or an office. But because they are so well-made they can also serve as extra living accommodation for your home. They could house elderly relatives or, as is the theme of this article, your teenager. It’s a brilliant way of creating extra living space in your home rather than incurring the costs of moving to a larger property.
How does it work for teenagers?
Teenagers love to have their very own living space and a garden lodge is the perfect solution. They can come and go as they wish, and because it’s lockable and secure they can leave all their belongings in there with no worries. However, they are still able to access your house to join in with family meals (and also to do their washing!). And because they are close by you can keep a subtle eye on them without prying too much into their life.
How do I get one?
There are loads of different sizes and shapes when it comes to garden lodges, so have a browse through online and see which appeal to you and your budget. It’s then just a case of ordering it and waiting for the installation date. Once it’s in you can do whatever you like to it in terms of decoration, fixtures and fittings.
