A bespoke garden building can provide some much needed extra space to your home, whether it be a games room, an office or just somewhere to relax. Take a look at the latest build the Renovate team finished over the summer…an art studio for a local Bristol artist, in time for the North Bristol Arts Trail.
The customers brief included a clean and tidy space to display their art, storage space overhead and most importantly a painting area that could be shut away to hide where the magic happens. So to get an idea of how this might look we mocked up a rough 3D plan.
Due to the size, height and proximity to the boundary line it was clear we needed to obtain planning permission before starting the build. You can find information here on whether your garden building needs planning permission.
The team did an excellent and efficient job of getting the ground prepped, the walls up and the roof on and luckily we had some good weather for it! We used an attractive yet cost effective pressure treated pine cladding to wrap around the structure.
We loved the Corotile we used for the roof, providing a durable, lightweight roof cover that was quick and easy to install and gives the appearance of traditional tiles.
Spotlights were added to the overhang of the roof to provide some attractive external lighting.
Internally the walls were plastered and painted white to create a blank canvas to show-off finished works of art. We made a ladder to provide easy access to the overhead storage which could also double up as a sleeping space and rough sawn soft wood was used to make the sliding doors concealing the painting area…
A great idea from our carpenter came in the form of this painting station that could be closed up to hide splashes of paint.
Electric underfloor heating was used to provide warmth and gallery style lighting allowed the works of art to shine! On the night of the trail the shed was transformed into a gallery…
