Garden Affairs customer wanted to create a self-contained small home in her garden, allowing her family to move into the main house. She chose Garden Affairs to design and build the 8m x 6.5m annexe using their 70mm thick log cabin building system.
Working closely with their client, Garden Affairs have designed a striking, modern home, that will be a comfortable place to live. The solid timber walls mixed with insulated floor and roof will mean the annexe is easy to keep warm, yet cool in summer.
The accommodation has been arranged as open plan living space on the ground floor with kitchen and w.c. There is also a useful 'boot room'.
Upstairs, there is one large bedroom with ensuite shower room. The roof of the annexe has a steep pitch which will create a room with a light and airy feel. Doors lead out onto a balcony, which is a lovely feature.
A mix of windows of casement and tilt and turn windows have been used throughout the annexe. The roof also features roof windows. All the doors and windows are timber with multi-point locking systems.
Externally the annexe has been stained black with the doors and windows painted dark grey. This mixed with the metal roof covering has created a stylish, contemporary building.
Garden Affairs have shared with us some photos of the build. The weathertight shell was completed in just ten days. The timbers are slow grown European Pine that is precision machined to create strong interlocking joints.
