7 Clever Uses For A Portable Cabin

The popularity of intergenerational living is on the rise! No matter how much you love your family

Many people who hire a cabin from Just Cabins are looking for more space for multi-generational living, extended whanau or visiting friends. Building extensions onto your house can be very expensive, so a cabin can be a cost-effective way to provide accommodation for elderly relatives, teenage children or family members struggling with rising rents and the high cost of buying a home.

Our cabins give everyone their own warm, dry, comfortable and private space.

Our portable cabins are also a popular choice for home-based offices and make a great space for home-based businesses like beauty studios.

But, our cabins don’t just make great bedrooms or offices, there are plenty of other ways you can use them. Here are some of our favourite ideas.

1: Garden House

Passionate about your garden and want to spend more time in it? A Just Cabin makes a perfect summer house! Even better, we can move your cabin in for you in spring and out again in autumn, so you have your garden house on site only when you’ll use it. Set yours up with rugs, bean bags, comfy indoor-outdoor furniture and a mini fridge for a perfect summer relaxation spot in your garden.

All Just Cabins feature large, lockable ranch sliders and a 1.8m wooden deck with canopy – set the deck up with your favourite potted plants and invite the outside in.

2: Deluxe Playroom

Kids overrunning your living spaces with toys, books and craft stuff? Set them up with their own full-sized playhouse!

An insulated, carpeted Just Cabin with installed lighting and electrical lead to plug into power is a much cosier, healthier space for your kids to play than a drafty, unfurnished, homemade cubby house. Our electrical WOF and included smoke alarm provide reassurance that your kids are playing in a safe space.

3: Event HQ

Running an outdoor sports event, festival or fair? You’ll need an ops centre, an HQ to help keep you organised which can function as a central spot for deliveries, meetings and team briefings – even a ticket booth, shelter during bad weather or crisis centre for any problems. Just Cabins are available in three sizes and can be delivered almost anywhere you need them, nationwide. They’re easy to transport, so delivery is fast and set up is a breeze, even on uneven terrain. With lighting, multiple power points and an electrical lead to plug into power, a Just Cabin is a great choice for your event HQ.

4: Adult Retreat

Dreamed of having a Man-cave, She-shed or home bar? Then, a portable cabin is the ideal place to set it up. With a warm, dry, roomy interior, you can customise the space to suit any needs.

Put a bar in the corner, create a craft space, customise a sewing room, or simply design a lockable getaway with NO KIDS ALLOWED!

5: Home School Space

Running out of learning space in your house? Create a classroom in your backyard instead! Our portable cabins make the perfect warm and inviting learning space to house all of your school supplies.

With lovely blank walls for learning resources and plenty of floor area for shelves, desks and more, you’ll never want to leave.

6: Home Gym

If you love fitness but need your garage space to park a car, then a portable cabin will make the perfect home gym! Well insulated, lockable and spacious, you can retreat to your backyard fitness space whenever you want to workout.

7: Theatre Room

Family movie night is the perfect opportunity to relax and enjoy time together. But, most people don’t have room for a movie theatre in their house!

So, why not create the perfect theatre experience in the backyard? Plush couches, big screen TV, a Netflix subscription and a powerpoint for the popcorn maker – you’ll never have to pay for movie tickets again!

Hiring A Space Solution

Hiring a cabin allows you to set up your own tailored space, wherever you need it, for whatever you need it for. Just Cabins provide transportable cabins to hire in three sizes with rental terms to suit you. Our quality build cabins have power and smoke alarms, modern carpets and curtains, and lockable doors offering you, your family – even your customers – a space that is secure, warm and healthy.
