The client wanted to create a custom-made garden apartment or 'granny flat', with the option to use it for guests sleeping over or family members visiting from abroad.
The designated area for this garden apartment was part of the side passage and back garden.
- Since the side-passage area was limited in size (2.1m wide), we used it for a hallway, bathroom with washing basin, toilet and shower, and small bedroom, and built the kitchen/sitting room in the garden area.
- We carried out the groundwork, got the utilities connected and laid down a concrete foundation.
- We installed timberframe walls with OSB smart plywood, breathable membrane, insulated cavity, cladding-board exterior finish and skimmed plasterboard finish.
