1 The Client request

This client had a family related need to release house space and required a good looking building to complete the look of the part landscaped garden.

An GSL timber frame solution was designed with trifold doors. The flat roof (epdm 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 £14,000 maximum was to be made available.

The Design Issues

  • The garden should be optimised to conserve garden space
  • Contemporary look required with flat roof to comply with planning
  • The building should not exceed 2.5m in height within 2 metres of the boundary
  • 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 25 sqm
  • Landscaping should be included to make the building immediately useable

The Budget /Pricing / Costs

  • Building kit £9630
  • Installation on finished base £1800
  • Electrical £1120
  • Groundwork £1200
  • Landscaping £450

  • Total Project cost £14280 (figures include VAT at 15%)
