30 sqm

Ark Design Build have recently finished this stunning annex and garden office in Crowborough, East Sussex. The studio was over the size allowed under permitted development and so a full planning application was required.

With two of our teams covering this area we have also made several garden rooms, garden gyms and outside living spaces in Crowborough, Rotherfield, Uckfield, Mayfield and Buxted.

The annex space features duel entry sliding doors into both a large living area and kitchen plus a separate bedroom and en-suite.

The kitchen was built on an angled wall so that our clients were able to utilise the full space available to them with an awkward garden shape. A functional utility space conceals a 90 litre water cylinder and electrical consumer unit.

As with any Ark Design studio this was a full turn key project. Fully insulated, we handle all aspects from planning permission, foundations and electrical connections all the way to the final brush stroke of paint on the wall. We handed the keys over to our clients leaving them nothing to do but enjoy their new space.

In total this garden studio in Crowborough took our team less than 5 weeks to complete. We placed the studio on sturdy steel foundations or groundscrews used throughout our industry. These robust foundations not only give the studio strength but allow a constant airflow below giving the space the longest possible life span. Coupled with am Epdm one piece rubber roof on top there is no reason why a garden studio, garden office or garden gym should not surpass a 50 year life if cared for correctly.

A standard finish for us is the most superior and perfect finish. Fully plastered walls and heat treated Thermowood Cladding will alone give a life expectancy of 30 plus years. Our studios offer a phenomenal return on investment and will add value to your property. We also offer Cedar Cladding at a small upgrade as well as composite decks from brands like Millboard or Ecodek.

All internal finishes will be left perfect and while we offer a strong range of electrical fixtures and fittings, our bespoke nature means we are in no way limited and will offer or install various bespoke ranges selected by us or our clients.
