If you are looking for a garden studio that combines understated elegance with the latest in contemporary design, look to Scotland and garden studio suppliers Dab Den. Dab Den is run by architects and it shows in the attention to detail.
Dab Den offer a ‘Signature’ range of standard design garden studios and a bespoke service where garden studios can be designed to the client’s individual needs and tastes. All Dab Den studios are built using the latest building techniques such as Structural Insulated Panels (SIP’s) and on trend design features such as bi-fold or sliding fully glazed doors which open up to create flowing indoor / outdoor spaces.
The Signature 001 range comes in three standard sizes 3.0m x 2.4m, 4.8m x 3.0m and 5.4m x 3.0m and features a full wall of bi-fold doors. Prices start at a very competitive £16,500 for the 3.0m x 2.4m and the Dab Den website clearly shows prices for the extras you may want to add such as under floor heating, slit windows, kitchenettes and shower pods. The other standard model is the Signature 002 which features large sliding doors on the corner of the building, which is also available in three standard sizes and start at £15,550 for the 3.0m x 2.4m model.
All Dab Den garden studios are built using Structural Insulated Panels (SIP’s) which make garden studios quick to install and efficient and comfortable to use. The use of cladding is integral to the crispness of the design and is available in three durable finishes – Siberian Larch, Western Red Cedar and Oak. The flat roof is covered in EPDM a rubber membrane with a long maintenance free lifespan although there is also an option for a living roof covering. The interior of the garden studio is finished with painted plasterboard and the floor is laminate as standard. Doors and windows are aluminium clad and double glazed with toughened, low e double glazing.
If the standard specification is not good enough Dab Den offer a range of optional extras including Wall panels, digital printed wallpaper, under floor heating, built in cupboards and furniture, roof lights, additional windows, kitchenette and shower room with WC, and interior design proposals.
Although based in Scotland Dab Den can install buildings throughout the UK. For more information take a look at their stylish website at www.dabden.com
