Combination Garage & Studio Case Study 5290

Read how we designed, arranged and built a beautiful combination garage and studio (plus potting shed) for a happy customer in West Sussex.

The project - a combination garage and studio in West Sussex

This West Sussex customer visited our showground as they wanted to dismantle and remove their old, run down garage, and replace it with a new building that incorporated a studio/office section and a separate potting shed.

The work - planning the garage and studio

After the initial site survey, we realised that, because the proposed building was in front of the property, planning permission would be required. We carried out a second survey with our planning advisor, made the necessary drawings and submitted our planning application to the local council. 

The application was successful, so we went straight to work dismantling the existing garage and extending the concrete base in preparation for the new building, which measures 5m x 5m and comprises a garage, with studio and shed – all partitioned off into separate sections.

The 8 x 8 studio section is lined, insulated and double glazed for all year round use and features painted MDF internal panels and timber laminated flooring. To minimise costs, the shed section was left unlined and uninsulated.

The exterior timber cladding was painted in Sadolin Superdec Jungle Green, and features a zero maintenance fire wall to the rear and side.

We also installed  a comprehensive electrics package, including both internal and external lighting, sockets and heating.

The result - a beautiful, practical building

The overall result is a timber building that is beautiful in appearance and practical in its design and intended use. And the client is extremely happy:

"We are delighted with our new timber building and the service received from the whole team at Bakers.

We wanted to replace an old timber workshop with a new multi-purpose building that provided space for car storage; garden/potting shed facilities and a home/garden office. Our new building provides these facilities very well and looks fabulous too. It has become a real feature in the garden as well as meeting our practical needs.

From the moment we walked into the Bakers show site to the final completion of the building we received five star service from the whole team at Bakers.

We were helped to refine our requirements for the building and advised on a design which best suited our needs.

Bakers then took care of obtaining planning permission (we needed this due to the size/location of the building), constructing the base, manufacturing and installing the building and completing electrical installations (power, heat and light). We were kept well informed of progress at the various stages of the work and there was minimal intrusion when the team was working in our garden.

We'd like to thank everyone from Bakers involved in the works and are very happy to be able to recommend them to others".
