Mr B contacted Garden Retreat interested in a triple timber framed garage, part of which would be used for a store room / work shop. We suggested a building from our Winchester Timber Framed Garage Range which satisfied his requirements perfectly.
Our timber triple garages are constructed using 100mm x 38mm timber framing clad with tanalith BS8417 shiplap, bitumen paper and 4mm plywood lining. This standard garage, has 300mm overhangs to the front and back with guttering down both sides, the overhang to the gable ends is 150mm. The eaves height on this triple garage is 7’ 7” plus the single engineering brick course. The ridge height varies depending on the width of the garage but sits generally around 3.5 metres. We can manufacture the ridge height to be no higher than 2.5m if required to sit within the planning regulations.
This timber garage has two sets of standard barn doors (or metal up and over) and the garage also comes with guttering, either black or brown with down pipes.
The standard covering for the roof is a heavy duty felt or you can opt for felt tiles, a metal Rollaclad roof, Tapco Slate or Cedar shingles. This particular garage has a black metal roofing with a waterproof underfelt. In addition the customer also requested a personnel door and window with a view to building a partition to create a storage area. We can provide partitions if required.
One concern for a number of customers is the damp proofing. When the sections are bolted through the single course of bricks into the concrete base the timber clad runs 50mm down the outside of the brick. In addition to this the vapour barrier also runs down the same distance ensuring no rain water can get into the building. One further measure is a DPC is attached to the bottom rail of the section which sits on the top of the brick and stops any moisture in the brick rising up into the timbers.
If you are interested in this design or would like something similar please do not hesitate to contact us for a quotation?
“Garden Retreat designed a building that met my needs perfectly. The team that arrived to put the thing up were fast and clean and did a great job. More importantly, James has been on hand to instantly deal with any snagging that came up afterwards (very minor things that we spotted after the build). The result is a beautifully solid workshop and a stress free process throughout.” Verified Review By Houzz
