Mrs R contacted Garden Retreat requiring us to demolish and old concrete garage with asbestos, and create a new base for an Artist’s Garden Studio.  We were delighted to work on this project and are very happy with the outcome as is Mrs R.

The Studio Garden Building is constructed using an external 16mm tanalised cladding and bitumen paper to ensure any damp is kept out of the building.  The walls are constructed using a 75mm x 38mm timber frame, 50mm Celotex and a 12mm inner lining grooved ply to finish the walls. The total thickness of the walls is 100mm which lends itself to all year round use.  The floor is manufactured using heavy duty bearers, 75mm Celotex and a 15mm ply floor which  comes with a laminated floor as standard and there are 4 options to choose from, alternatively you can fit your own vinyl or carpet.

The roof is pitched (standard 2.5m to ridge although this is a higher version) insulated and comes with a ply ceiling, felt tile roof, underfelt and internal spot lights or light panels. Within the electrics pack there is consumer unit, 3  brushed stainless steel double sockets and a switch. We also install sockets with built in USB charging points which is very useful and this building also has external spots (not standard on the studio model) to light up the porch area.

This particular model is supplied with one set of 1500mm wide anthracite grey uPVC French doors and two 750mm side lights and a 600mm x 900mm uPVC casement window. The building is designed to be modular so during the ordering process you have the opportunity to choose where you want the windows and doors to be. The roof tiles were up-graded to Tapco Slate which looks fantastic and although are plastic look great and last for years.

If you are interested in this design or would like something similar please do not hesitate to contact us for a quotation?

TESTIMONIAL

“Garden Retreat did a great job. James was endlessly accommodating, helpful, and prepared to tweak things so they were just how I wanted them. The install team were very efficient and careful of both the building and the surroundings and cleared up after themselves. Nothing was too much trouble. Very highly recommended and would ask them to come back and do something else in the future.” Verified Review By Houzz
