Exciting uses for dutch barns
If you’ve ever seen dutch barns, you will see that a dutch barn is a type of beautiful garden shed. The roof shape gives it a fantastic rustic and characterful aspect. Yet what excitement can be had in a dutch barn?
Here’s five suggestions;
1. Micro brewery in dutch barns
With the explosion in micro breweries in the UK a dutch barn is a perfect place to perfect your hobby. You can keep your beer making equipment out of the house –which saves on smells and creates space. Invite friends over to show them how it’s done – you’ll be the talk of the street. You can label your beer Dutch Barn Ale!
2. Pet keeping in dutch barns
If you have young children, or even older ones, at some point pets are going to be living with you. What better place than dutch barns to keep your little animals safe? Perfect for rabbits, guinea pigs – even chickens! What’s more you keep your garage clean and tidy, and no smells in the house.
3. Famous Five and dutch barns
Remember the Famous Five, or Secret Seven? Enid Blighton’s characters always started an adventure in the garden shed. Why not dutch barns? A secret knock at the door, entry, a smuggled lamp, sweets and a bottle of water – and off they went. Do your children have a secret place from which to roam the world?
4. The entrepreneur and dutch barns
Starting a business can be problematic at the best of time. A key issue is space. Space to work, to think to relax. Time away from the children. From the domestic demands of home. A dutch barn gives you a great working environment. It’s beautifully sitationed in your garden – and once insulated and heated will allow you to work all year round. Your friend’s will be jealous.
Did you know that the founder of £2 million website SpareRoom.co.uk operates from his garden shed (why not a dutch barn?), while property guru Kirstie Allsopp runs her business and writes books in her garden shed.
5. Relaxing in dutch barns
Finally – with all those exciting activities – let’s not forget we need time out to relax too. On long summer days what better place is there to relax? With the door wide open, blue skies streaming in through the large windows, take your garden chair and take time to relax.
