A new standalone timber structure built on the grounds of your property can serve all manner of functions and enhance the way you use your home
This contemporary design by Green Studios features birch ply interior cladding with a cedar fi nish externally. It’s used as a home offi ce and storage area


Whether you plan to use it for storing your car, bikes, tools or Christmas tree, having a garage is a useful addition to keep vehicles safe and other items out of your main abode. A garage can add real value to your project – and could even double-up as temporary accommodation during a build. Lots of styles are available, from traditional oak structures through to contemporary timber designs. Consider what it will be used for and if you might want to convert any part of the addition into living space at a future date – if this is the case, then think about insulating all the walls to a suitable standard (rather than retrofi tting later). Some designs are multi-purpose, such as those with habitable areas bolted on, either in a loft room or as part of the ground fl oor plan.
