White Peak Design & Build

We have recently been introduced to the work of White Peak Design & Build who offer a bespoke garden room design service.

Run by Tim Taylor a level 3 qualified carpenter and degree qualified construction manager. Having worked for large construction companies Tim has transferred his skills into smaller bespoke design projects such as garden rooms.

Each project is approached individually, and Tim works with each customer to tailor the design and specification of the garden room to suit their needs, tastes and site requirements.

Tim has sent through details of a typical garden room specification:

Wall structure:

  • Cedar cladding,
  • Tanelised Lathes
  • Breathable Membrane
  • 18mm OSB3
  • 4 x 2 C16 Studs
  • 80mm PIR Insulation
  • Vapour Barrier where required
  • 12.5m Plasterboard
  • Skim
Tim tells us that the traditional studs, insulation & OSB build-up can be replaced with SIP’s if appropriate.


  • 9 x 2 joists cut to create 1:40 slope.
  • 90mm Insulation
  • 18mm OSB3
  • EPDM Rubber Membrane
  • Plasterboard and skim


  • Concrete pad foundations
  • $inc Block Plinths
  • Steel angles beams
  • 6inch tanelised joists
  • 90mm PIR insulation
  • 18mm Chipboard flooring
  • Underlay

This is a well specified build-up. White Peak Design & Build have had all of the structural components assessed by an engineer and architect. All the timbers used in their garden rooms are also sized to comply with Building Regulation guidance – its good to know Tim and his team take this approach rather than the one size fits all size buildings as we have seen in some specifications.
