1. The Client request

This client had an unused area of garden beyond his swimming pool. The pool area was to be re-paved and a new poolhouse built. It was an opportune time to develop the unused area and a large Garden Workshop with two rooms was chosen to make good use of this space.

2. The Design Criteria Statement

The new building should provide storage and workshop space at a budget price. The building should be expected to last 20 years plus without any significant maintenance. A room division should be provided to allow a smaller workspace to be heated in the winter.

The building needed to fit the existing site and comply with permitted development rules.

A budget of £13,0000 including base and electrics to be made available.

3. The Design Issues

  • A concrete base would be best to keep the building below the 4m allowed height and avoid moving too much material.
  • An attractive traditional work shed look was required which should have exceptionally good timber treatment (pressure treated timber was chosen)
  • Full electrical installations including connection to supply at the adjacent swimming pool was required. The wires would need to run in conduit due to lack of cable routes in the chosen design.
  • Total internal space should be around 30 sqm
  • The building immediately useable after installation

4. The Budget /Pricing / Costs

  • Building kit £6250 (modified kit system)
  • Installation on finished base £850
  • Electrical £660
  • Groundwork / concrete on dpm on stone with cladding to ground £1500
  • Landscaping, decking and balustrading £1750

  • Total Project cost £9,250 (figures include VAT at 17.5%)
