Garden studio nears completion
We have been working on an office studio at the end of a long garden. Two buildings have been designed. Both are timber framed and very light. The larger studio building is very highly insulated (using 150mm Cellotex combined with Super Tri-Iso) and incorporates a super efficient air-source heat pump. Calculations indicate that the annual heating bill will cost less than £21 in electricity costs. The building is wrapped with a black timber rain screen over a complete wrapper of a rubber membrane for water-proofing. The rain screen is low-cost tanalised softwood, usually used for roofing.
