This charming garden cottage by Tiny House Cabins is full of features. The spacious building incorporates two sleeping lofts, a kitchen, WC and storage shed.
Built in a Conservation Area, the project couldn’t be built under permitted development and required planning permission application.
Inspired by Tiny House Cabins Cozy Cottage Range, this building was a bespoke size to meet the customer’s needs. The building sits on a footprint of 6 meters by 5.5 meters and is 3.5 meters high at the ridge. Normally, the ridge would be 4 meters high, but the 3.5m specified still left enough height for sleeping lofts to be installed at each end of the building.
Normally, dormer windows would be fitted in the sleeping lofts. In this case, they were replaced with Velux roof windows which flood the loft with natural light and will be ideal for watching the stars!
The sleeping lofts are a clever design feature, as we can see from these images, they don’t steal space from the main room. Leaving plenty of space for a large sofa, desk, tv and even a dartboard.
There is a 2-meter deep extension at the rear of the cottage. This houses a WC, kitchen and storage shed. The kitchen and WC lead off the main room, while the storage shed is accessed via its own external door.
The structure of the cabin is fully insulated. Coupled with double glazing and underfloor heating, it will be a comfortable place to spend time all year round. The cosy interior features a beautiful hardwood floor and the roof beams give the room a unique character.
The character and detail are present externally too. Waney edge Larch has height on the front wall, which, in our opinion, looks great with the choice of bluey/grey painted doors and windows.
The roof is beautifully tiled with Western Red Cedar shingles. The Tiny House Cabins team create some of the best-tiled Cedar roofs we’ve
