Have you ever been driving on the highway and seen what looks like a house strapped to the back of a truck? You might have been slightly taken aback and not sure what to make of such a big structure being driven down a busy road. What you were seeing was actually a portable building! If you have never heard of or seen a portable building, it’s time to listen up. You never think of buildings as being portable, but these types of cabins, sheds, barns and holiday homes are increasingly popular. These multi-functional buildings are ideal for small families or couples who need an extra building either on their current property or for a holiday cabin destination.
How Do Portable Buildings Work?
Similarly to a regular home, a portable building is a professionally built structure which can be ordered online and transported to the destination of your choice. They are then installed by the company and are ready to be used! These are purpose-built to withstand windy, cold and wet weather – so you won’t end up like Dorothy being trapped in a flying house during a storm!
How Are Portable Buildings Safely Transported?
It might look, and feel, precarious to put a whole building on the back of a truck and haul it down the highway. Some portable buildings are transported in a few pieces which are then fitted together by the professionals from your chosen company, once they arrive at your destination. Others are transported whole, tied down and reinforced by specialist equipment that make it almost impossible to imbalance them.
What Can I Use A Portable Building For?
The beauty of a portable building is that once it arrives, you can deck it out for any activity or use. Here are just a few of the ways you could use your portable building.
- A garden office. During the COVID-19 pandemic, many people were forced to work from home. If you don’t have a home office, this can be pretty difficult – working around children and/or your partner can mean you wind up working from your bedroom floor every day! A portable building can be installed in your yard and made into a garden office, a personal office space outside of the house. This provides tranquility and privacy for you to do your work at home.
- A home gym. Have you always wanted a home gym, but thought it sounded like an impossible luxury only celebrities can afford? Think again. A portable building can be transformed into a home gym which provides you with a workout space that is private, comfortable and away from other annoying gym-goers.
- A kids playroom. If you have children, you will know the feeling of being surrounded by toys everywhere in your home. Well, no more! Turn your portable building into a kids playroom which can be filled to the brim with toys and fancy dress outfits. Your kids will love it too – their own personal den!
