The Garden Studio by Maison d’etre Properties is inspired by North American architecture and features distinctive board and batten external cladding.
The Garden Studio has an internal footprint of 13m2 which is approximately a 4m square building with the front corner cut off to form a veranda area with roof canopy.
The Garden Studio is designed by a civil engineer so you can be assured of a sturdy construction and is built plank by plank on site so makes full use of the space available, because the Garden Studio is built on site it overcomes any access problems – the materials can even be transported through the house!
Externally the Garden Studio is clad with pine vertical batten and board (wide boards with a narrow strip of batten covering the join) which is then painted in a choice of colour. The roof is finished with asphalt shingles and topped off with a decorative copper copular.
The Garden Studio has outward opening French doors which lead onto a corner veranda, and has custom designed casement windows on two sides. As an extra roof windows can be incorporated into the hipped roof which would provide additional light and ventilation. The windows and doors are glazed with Pilkington K double glazed units and the doors have polished chrome fittings and lock.
The Garden Studio is insulated with high tech foil insulation which gives the walls a u-value of 0.17 which qualifies for a SAP certificate for thermal efficiency.
Internally the Garden Studio is finished like a conventional room with painted plasterboard walls and a vaulted ceiling; the floor is finished with moisture resistant strip flooring.
The Garden Studio is fully wired and comes with a 2kW convector heater, four chrome rimmed spot lights, dimmer switch and three double 13amp power points with chrome face plates. Additionally there is an outside light and socket, smoke detector and burglar alarm so your garden studio is as safe as houses!
The team from Maison d’etre Properties are committed to tidy working and prior to starting will discuss with the homeowner what impact building the studio will have on the rest of the garden – unlike normal builders they won’t trample on everything in sight!
Maison d’etre Properties are offering the 13m2 Garden Studio for £10,500 plus VAT and they advise that the cost of the base and connection to the mains electricity supply will be around £1000. If you require finance for your Garden Studio this can arranged.
