Artists Garden Studio

The following work on this artists garden studio has been achieved in less than 3 weeks.

These latest pictures show the completed studio. The studio has Anthracite UPVC patio doors and windows on 3 sides. It also features a large skylight, allowing lots of additional light into the studio for our client to work.

The pictures pictures below show how the studio is illuminated at night.

The rear window and large skylight.

The large skylight in the roof.

Patio doors to the front of the building, again to maximise the light entering the building. The addition of the sink and draining unit helps to transform this garden room into an artist studio.

This pictures show the 90mm celotex insulation being installed into the walls, after that plasterboard is fixed to walls. Up to 140mm celotex is added to the ceiling, 100mm celotex is put into the floor before a vapour barrier and P5 22mm moisture proof floor is laid.

The image below shows the roof structure. Windows and doors are installed, after that the Siberian Larch boards enclose the frame. As a result the studio really starts to take shape…

Ditches are dug for drainage. Water, electrics and internet are are connected to the studio.

FSC sourced 100mm treated timber frame is constructed on to concrete pads that have been formed by our team. Timber frame is covered with 11mm OSB ply boards. In addition the Breathable membrane is applied to protect the OSB boards.

Plaster boarding of walls and ceiling, although picture does not show as forgot to take the picture, we have applied a 25mm layer of Quintherm over ceiling joists and taped to create a thermal bridge… This studio is very well insulated.

These works have been achieved in 3 weeks.

We are experiencing delays for the Doors and cladding during this unsettling period of COVID-19 and keep a look out on our recent projects as we are back on Monday 5th October in readiness for the doors, decking amongst other works.

Vapour barrier fitted to walls allowing overlap to floor and ceiling and sealed.

Breathable membrane is being applied to protect the OSB boards.

This shows building 100mm above water level and 2/3rds of the building is over water.

4th July 2020


At Contemporary Garden Studio we don’t just specialize in garden rooms we also construct canopy’s of all shapes and sizes.

Take a look at one of our newly supplied and installed carport canopy’s. This canopy measures 6.5m x 3.1m width.

We had to remove and replace some of the claddings to the side of the property in order to get a secure fixing to the wall. The 5 legs of the canopy are resin bolted to concrete pads and this was all completed in just over 2 days.

This is a very robust canopy system and polycarbonate roof sheets come in a range of thickness from 16mm clear shown in pictures to 35mm, there are also a range of colours for the roof sheets, clear, bronze, Opal and Blue.

23rd May 2020


We are waiting for white UPVC doors and window to arrive before we complete the cladding.

Our valued customer asked us to construct a shed but is now looking at creating either an office or garden living room from this build.

We are now looking at adapting this garden room for them with insulation, electrics and plastering.

Everything we build is built bespoke to our customers specification. Meaning they get the Garden Studio of their dreams…

Roof has been constructed and our client has optes for high tensil felt roof covering which has a 20 year guarantee.

Walls were built and clad prior to construction as there are adjacent walls minimising access and the ability to finish later.

We carried out a check of the base that the garden room would be situated on. Ensuring this would be suitable for building.

One the (left) is a walk through video of the completed job.

Please see below a gallery of images taking you through the build from start to finish.

A look from the outside with 2 sets of French doors and a sealed unit to match and allow more light. Our customer has chosen Kavex cladding but you have a huge choice of cladding, doors, windows and skylights to choose from. See the video at the top of the post for a full walk through.

These pictures show of the nearly completed project for our very valued customer. Unfortunately we have had to suspend works as we were forced to stop as we are all experiencing the Lockdown due to Covid 19 (Corona Virus).

We will be completing this project as soon as we are allowed back to work.

Please keep a look out for the completed project as there is only 3 days left to complete this.

Updated 23/05/20.

The pictures show the insulation being installed and plasterboard being fixed to walls.

Pictures show breathable membrane over the top of the Sterling board cladding. Battens have been fixed ready for the exterior cladding to be fixed.

These pictures show the detail of the almost complete framework and one of the two skylight openings. You will notice that roof is formed exactly as you would find on a loft conversion. Roof is cross battened with 50mm x 50mm timbers for ventilation and timbers installed to create pitch for roof to allow rain water to discharge from roof.

Frame work for walls and the start of the roof structure.

Base was constructed on padstones and secured in to place, laser levelling equipment was used to ensure this was perfectly level which is vital to the build.

Existing structure was removed by us and disposed of. This structure had an asbestos corrugated roof which was also disposed of by our appointed specialists.
