A garden office with a view!

Garden office with a view - Cabinmaster#GardenOfficeWeek continues with Cabin Master‘s sponsored post about a recent project that makes the most of rural views:

Ken Wood has recently set up a new consultancy business from his home in Glossop.

Ken and his wife Sharon live in a beautiful, old cottage nestled on a hillside with far-reaching views across the High Peak.

Ken and Sharon made the decision to invest in a garden office in the autumn of 2014.

An internet search led the couple to Quality Timber Buildings and the Cabin Master website. From there the Woods visited the showsite and factory in Ilkeston to discuss their requirements.

Ken and Sharon wanted somewhere quiet and peaceful to work away from the main house that would make the most of the views from their garden. Due to the characteristic nature of their stone cottage the windows aren’t large so they really wanted a garden office with as much glass as possible.

They needed enough space for two people to work and they wanted the room to be multifunctional so they could use it as a place to sit, chat, and relax and enjoy the views when they weren’t working.

Quality Timber Buildings built and installed a 3.6 square metre lined and insulated bespoke office with two UPVC glass sides. The other two sides of the building have no glass as they are sheltered and not seen due to where the building is situated. The garden office is constructed using slow-grown redwood and the walls are 44mm loglap double tongue and groove. The Woods choose green UVPC frames for the windows and doors to complete their building.

The Woods’ house is on high ground, so the building needed to be substantial and able to withstand the high winds. Ken says, ‘The garden office is great, it’s robust, shows no sign of movement in any weather, it’s warm, easy to heat, and makes the most of our fantastic views.’
The Woods are now considering two more studios that match the office as additional accommodation for their friends and family.
