‘The SHED’ was constructed for a development property that was refused planning permission for a garage and the needed more storage.
It was built on an existing hard standing at the end of the plot. Erected on a brick wall / plinth to prevent damp rising, with a basic timber frame structure, clad with untreated shiplap, UPVC fascia and soffit, EPDM rubber roof and painted to emulate the house. With double doors allowing enough of an opening for a sit on lawn mower, and a lockable single door.
The great thing about the design is that in the future if the owners wished to turn this into a more substantial space, like a home office for example, it could be easily modified with insulation, a floor, new doors etc. This also benefitted from a water and electrical supply unfitted but adjacent to the building.
Whats probably most surprising however, is that all the materials to achieve this were less than £2k! Obviously there is no comparison to a similar flat pack type structure of similar cost.
All this at 15m2 falls under ‘permitted development’ and does not require planning permission.
