This fullspan shaped oak framed building includes an undercover outdoor entertainment area and a habitable dwelling space for a home office. This building combines a gazebo design with a home office allowing the building to be used for both business & pleasure.
A barn hip roof has been used on both ends with clay Penshurst tiles. Timber wise, larch weatherboard has been used and externally you can see how the larch weatherboard and oak frame are starting to silver with age from U.V. exposure.
The outdoor entertainment area is open sided on two sides, similar to our oak framed gazebo & car port buildings. This provides an ideal space to look out onto the garden and enjoy some alfresco dining. Our clients have clad the ceiling in pine and put in some external lighting to create a bar and BBQ area as well as a seating & dining area that can be used rain or shine all year round. Between the framework internally in this area brickwork has been used instead of stud work and weatherboard on the rear internal wall and again on the side wall of the office area.
The Office space has been done to a habitable dwelling spec including use breather membrane and top of the range insulation. The rest of the internal fitting out is normally the responsibility of the client and their contractors as you can see they have done a great job and have managed to create a multifunctional use with this frame design. 3 different windows have been used in the manufacture of this building. these include 1 triple casement window with one fixed pane and two openers. There is a single casement window that opens out from the ensuite wet room as well as a custom made circular window at the very top off the building.
With views and a window that open out the garden this home office really revels in the perks of having a separate working from home space. The vaulted ceiling is this space really helps this and despite the small foot print of this building a lot of different uses have been thought out cleverly in its design.
Also incorporated into the home office section is space to relax on the sofa, a build in kitchenette, a wet room complete with shower, toilet & sink as well as a small mezzanine floor for a bed similar to the design found normally on boats. on the few courses above slab our extra wide ODC bricks have been used.
