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

1. The Client request

This client had a family related need to release house space. Their idea was to expand their kitchen facilities to achieve their goal. Would it be possible to move the heavily used gymnasium equipment to the garden to create the space needed.

2. The Design Criteria Statement

 The home gymnasium (in daily use and located in the garage adjacent to the kitchen) would provide the additional house space needed. This would have to be moved to the garden. It should be accessible, insulated for all year round use and provide garden equipment storage space.

The floor would need to be exceptionally strong to support the heavy gym kit.

A storage shed needed to be replaced at the same time with an extension structure of the same quality as the new gym.

An GSL timber frame solution was designed with two sets of tri-fold doors. The flat roof (edpm covered) extension should take advantage of the site space available (an unusual shape) to replace the storage shed and provide potential for toilet / shower room in the future.

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

3. The Design Issues

  • An unusual shaped plot should be optimised to conserve garden space
  • Lots of light and a contemporary look required
  • The building should not exceed 2.5m in height within 2 metres of the boundary (The half hip roof was designed specifically to achieve this)
  • Full electrical installations including connection to supply + data connections required
  • Plumbing and drainage possibility should be available as future upgrade
  • Total internal space should be around 30 sqm
  • Landscaping should be included to make the building immediately useable

4. The Budget /Pricing / Costs

  • Building kit £11630
  • Installation on finished base £2300
  • Electrical £1200
  • Groundwork £1200
  • Landscaping £450

  • Total Project cost £16780 (figures include VAT at 17.5%)
