Garden Studio

Photo: Garden studio, built with SIPs.

SIPs were used throughout including the curved roof, insulated splines used to join panels mean no wooden rafters or studs break the insulated envelope. No cold bridges mean the roof can be unventilated. EPDM membrane is simply adhered to the deck. A ventilated rain screen of cement board is used to clad the walls. Oak glazed doors within an oak portal frame stiffened with fitch plates at the corners, create a sturdy front elevation


Design or Plan used: My own design

Edinburgh Edinburgh writes: Thanks cjmasterbuilder. I just noticed my text refers to fitch plates. That should read; flitch plates, i.e. metal plate reinforcement sandwiched between wooden members bolted together. This stiffening may not be absolutely necessary but I prefer to 'overbuild' & the stainless steel bolts make a interesting detail of a structural element.
