This recently installed Garden Studio
has got everybody yearning after the Burnham design, with it’s quaint riverside position and smooth shiplap cladding in the Pebble shade of Valtti paint. Sitting prettily on the banks of the River Itchen in Twyford, Hampshire, this secluded 3 x 3.6m retreat could be the perfect reading nest or artist’s studio, where the natural surroundings could inspire many a watercolour.
This size Burnham Studio usually stands at 2.8m high, so in order to comply with local planning laws, the customer requested to have the eave height restricted to 2.1m, making the total height of the building 2.45m, and allowing the customer to avoid having to apply for planning permission.
As well as the double doors and 6 full-length windows, 2 opening fanlight windows were added to the rear of the building, allowing further air circulation for balmy summer days. The studio is also fully insulated to ensure that the temperature is kept pleasant, and the building fully functional, all year round.
The customer opted for painted matchboard lining and a natural lacquer floor which meant that the Burnham was ready for use from the moment it was installed, which it no doubt was! Chrome door furniture adds a modern yet timeless look and perfectly complements the shade of Valtti paint. An electrical pack was also added meaning our lovely customer can enjoy lighting and mains power, which not only extends the hours of use on the building, but also opens up many more opportunities of how to use it.
Well I'm delighted that all appeared to go so smoothly for you team who came over to construct the "shed"! Thank you to you and all staff involved in purchase and construction of the building: it is a superb piece of work and the quality of the workmanship is much to be admired. We are delighted with our "Burnham studio" although maybe it should be re-named Burnham Palace! Please convey a message of appreciation to all your staff involved including those at your base, your friendly fitters like the three musketeers in the photo and sub-contractors such as Callum the electrician.
