Many people have been taking the opportunity to carry out some home improvements while they’re in lockdown, with a new survey revealing that the DIY sector has experienced something of a boost in recent weeks.
Insider shared the findings of research carried out by Confused.com, which found that nearly three quarters of households have been (or are still planning to) use lockdown to crack on with some DIY tasks.
More than half (54 per cent) of those questioned are carrying out work in their garden, getting on with jobs like painting fences and laying decking.
If you have a large enough outdoor space, have you considered buying a log cabin in the UK?
This could be the perfect home office if you plan to spend more time working from home post-lockdown, or it could just be a nice, peaceful bolthole to escape from the chaos of the family home from time to time.
The Sun recently shared some examples of how creative homeowners have been recreating their local pubs at home, with some fitting their log cabins out with a bar and all the paraphernalia that goes with it.
According to the newspaper, it’s perfectly legal to have a ‘pub’ in your back garden where you can enjoy your favourite tipple, and you don’t need a licence as long as you’re not taking any money for the alcohol that’s consumed there.
Katie King, who lives in Greater Manchester, has even been sharing a shed-based pub quiz from her garden cabin since lockdown began, with the newspaper revealing that she’s amassed an impressive array of followers.
