Large Wooden Garage, Devon. We are please to say this is Mr S’s second building he has had from us which is always a great indication of the good work that was done in 2015, this was the ‘Original Project’

Mr S required a similar building and we were happy to assist.







Our timber 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 & rear with guttering front & back, the overhang to the gable ends are 150mm. The eaves height on this double garage with standard double doors in the gable end is normally 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 comes with two sets of standard barn doors (although this customer wanted them larger at 3m) and the garage also comes with guttering, either black or brown with down pipes.

The standard covering for the roof is now felt tiles or a metal roof with underfelt. Tapco Slate or Cedar shingles are additional options.

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?



“James Parker made sure I was comfortable with the drawings and was on site when the professional team installed my new garages. This is repeat business as I was very pleased the last time I employed Garden Retreat in 2016” Verified Review By Houzz
