In the right hand column is a list with thumbnail photos of other "real projects" snapshots in the same format.

1. The Client request

Our client had a large beautiful garden and often entertained friends and family. During the landscaping projects an area overlooking a formal area had been set aside for a building specially for parties. The area was pre-concreted and tapering. A covered entrance was requested to provide some outdoor seating in rainy weather. The specification was (comfortable but not necessarily for all year round use or occupation)Should be designed to fit in with the landscape and take up the whole area designated. About 30 sqm + the covered area making the building some 11m long.

2. The Design Criteria Statement

 The area was a tapering shape and the concrete was above the lawn level requiring a decking area to fit the building into the landscape. The roof needed to be in two heights to provide full use of the wider area and cover the space. This required a complex roof design.

The building is to provide one large space to accommodate various functions.

The floor would need to be strong to support dancing and general party activities.

An GSL timber frame solution was designed with double hipped bespoke roof construction. The walls were specified in 44mm tgv redwood timber boards and 40mm of insulation was built into the warm roof structure tiled with brown shingle.

A budget of £17,000 maximum was to be made available.

3. The Design Issues

  • An unusual shaped roof should look good from all aspects
  • Lots of light and a traditional semi-barn look required
  • The building should not exceed 4m in height
  • Full electrical installations including connection to supply + data connections required
  • Plumbing and drainage was to be completed by the clients own contractor
  • Total internal space should be around 30 sqm
  • Decking should be included to make the building immediately useable

4. The Budget /Pricing / Costs

  • Building kit £13,000
  • Installation on finished base £2500
  • Electrical £900
  • Groundwork £200
  • Landscaping and decking £350

  • Total Project cost £16,950 (figures include VAT at 17.5%)
