LAKE SIDE STUDIO
The structural engineering on this job provides the magic… This stunning studio is supported 2/3 of the way out over the lake. We achieved this by using foundations pads, under the water and a secured galvanised steel base frame as per structural engineers details.
This building was extremely high specification, including; large bi-fold doors, windows and doors all finished in black aluminium suspended over decked viewing platform. This studio even comes with a bespoke 33mm glass viewing panel in the deck. In addition there is also a beautifully simple glass balustrade surrounding the viewing platform.
All our beautiful garden studios are well insulated and therefore can be used all year round.
• 90mm Celotex in the walls, 100mm in the floor and up to 140mm to the ceiling.
• This studio measured 6m wide and 4m deep.
• Exterior lighting / 33mm glass viewing panel / glass balustrade
The works you are about to see on this stunning lake side garden studio have all been achieved in 5 weeks.

We are experiencing delays for the Doors and cladding during this unsettling period of COVID-19. Please keep a look out on our recent projects as we are back on Monday 5th October in readiness for the doors and decking amongst other works.
Vapour barrier fitted to walls allowing overlap to floor and ceiling and sealed.
Pictures shows where we have used expanding foam to ensure 100% insulation is effective and sealed membrane / vapour barrier to floor before P5 22mm moisture proof 1st layer of floor is laid.
Breathable membrane is being applied to protect the OSB boards.
This shows building 100mm above water level and 2/3 of the building is over water.
