We are loving this 4m x 3m art studio designed and built by Garden Affairs. The soft green colour of the walls has been mixed with red asphalt roof tiles, a combination we haven't seen before, but we think it looks great!
A quick look at this log cabin art studio
Tailor-made log cabin design
One of Garden Affairs high-spec 70mm thick log cabins was chosen for the art studio. Working with their customer, the Garden Affairs team customised the layout and features to meet their customer's needs and tastes.
The pitched roofline adds a lot of character. House quality asphalt shingles have been used. We often see grey shingles fitted, so the red finish is a refreshing change. We like how Garden Affairs have detailed the barge boards which run along each gable end.
Natural light is an essential feature of a garden art studio and Garden Affairs, and their customer have ensured a light room by placing doors and windows on three walls.
A long double casement window has been mixed with a single glazed door on the front wall. A second single door has been fitted on the left-hand wall and a further casement window on the right-hand wall. As we can see from the images, the two doors offer good movement between the studio and the garden.
The doors and windows were painted in the Garden Affairs factory prior to installation. The exterior of the interlocking wall timbers and trims such as the barge boards were stained green in the factory too, ensuring an optimal finish.
