The beauty of working with a company like Nordic Rooms is that they will design a building around your specific needs. This recent project shows how they can tailor the layout of the building and the specification for each client.
Nordic Rooms client approached them with the need to create a garden office, workshop and storage room. The three uses cohesively joined under one well-designed roof.
- 10 meters wide by 3 meters deep
- Three rooms each with their own access
- Built close to the boundary – build-up includes fire retardant membrane & composite cladding
- Siberian Larch cladding on front elevation
- Matching Larch fence
- 3-week build
- Project cost £28,000
The building is long and narrow. The building is 10 meters wide by 3 meters deep. The space divided into three rooms, each with their own access door on the front elevation.
The garden office is a compact 2 meters wide internally. It will be flooded with natural light thanks to the glazed French doors on the front wall and floor to ceiling window on the side wall.
The workshop is the biggest of the three rooms, at 5.44m wide internally. This room has a mix of glazed French doors and a log window alongside.
The final room is a storage shed. Like the office, this is 2m wide internally. This room is accessed via a single solid door. A small window has been positioned next to the door.
Built close to a boundary fence
To maximise the space available, the garden office workshop has been positioned within 1 meter of the boundary fence. Because of the buildings size at 30sqm and its proximity to the boundary fence, it needed to comply with Building Regulations.
When building close to a boundary fence like this, the Building Regulations insist on the building being constructed substantially from non-combustible materials. Companies like Nordic Rooms are au fait with meeting these regulations. In this case, they incorporated a fire retardant membrane and made use of a cement based composite cladding which has a low fire rating. This cladding was used on the elevations adjacent to the to the boundary fence, with Siberian Larch used on the front wall.
To complete the project, the Nordic Rooms team installed a new fence using Larch panels so that it compliments the cladding used on the exterior of the building.
The garden office workshop store was built under the Permitted Development rules. The project was completed in three weeks and cost £28,000.
