Be it traditional or contemporary, many of the features of our garden offices are shared. All walls and floor can be insulated with a minimum of 100mm insulation. The structurally graded timber frame is clad in a sheet material, such as ply for wind bracing and added structural integrity. Finally, the whole structure is wrapped in a high quality breathable membrane prior to cladding the walls in either western red cedar, pressure treated softwood or desired hard wood finish. All doors and windows are double glazed with toughened glass where required.
The style and finish of the interior requires careful consideration and specification. We can cater from simple internal sheet material cladding through to fully decorated plaster board and plaster. Thereafter the choice of features are mostly no different to a house, Electrics, Plumbing, Heating, WiFi etc are all options.
We are happy to use a wide range of roofing materials to complement the existing garden and architectural surroundings. For pitched roofs this could be number 1 grade western red cedar shingles, slate, clay tiles, rosemary tiles. For flat roofs the finish can be either GRP, roofing grade rubber or living sedum turf. The options are endless. As well as our unique designs it is this attention to detail that separate our bespoke structures from mass produced kits and other less considered alternatives.
