Outside influence! The fun doesn’t have to stop with your log home. Whimsical (and colorful) outbuildings like sheds, pool houses, barns, and cottages add a hefty dose of charm to any yard.
Stools and storage for barware transform this waterside outbuilding into the perfect spot for serving drinks with a view. With access to electricity, a small refrigerator could be added to keep cold beverages at the ready.
Crisp white trim, two sets of French doors and a cupola on top give this shed head-turning charm. Its owner uses the quaint building as a shop on her lavender farm.
Poolside Paradise (1) This 1,336-square-foot “pool pub” features timber accents inside a half-log exterior.
Poolside Paradise (2) The strictly recreational structure (there is one bathroom, but no bedrooms) was designed to resemble the look of an Old English pub, complete with brick walls, a wood stove and a fully stocked bar.
Poolside Paradise (3) A greenhouse is a perfect addition to the log home pool house.
Blogger and sewing book author Torie Jayne painted her summerhouse in a cool pastel palette. She uses the petite backyard building for writing, crafting and reading.
What gentleman’s farm would be complete without an adorable log barn? Classic green trimwork and roofing pop against the warm honey-toned wood.
