Our client was granted planning to site a very contemporary new-build property onto a rural site, surrounded by mature trees.
The building design was very 'Grand Designs' and to be built across two floors, but with the lower floor underground.
As a contract to what was designed to be a somewhat alien structure, the client commissioned us to design and build a far more traditional garage and store building to greet people as they entered the site.
A three-bay closed garage was chosen together with substantial store to house ride-on mower and an array of outdoor equipment.
A large log store was specified to store fuel for the various wood burners within the main house.
Materials were selected that would allow the building to blend into its surroundings.
Reclaimed pan-tiles were used on the roof and white painted garage doors make a suitable contrast to the oak frame and treated weatherboarding.
