Design & Planning

planning permission, rural building, design, architecture

Our Design Studio, located above the joinery workshop and offices, offers architectural design services with full CAD and 3D rendering. We listen carefully to your requirements and produce drawings for approval for your dream project - whether it be a wardrobe or an extension.  

We can apply for planning on your behalf, submit Permitted Development applications and obtain Building Regulation approval whether we are your chosen builder or not.

We specialise in Garden Rooms and 'Glamping', but can also prepare drawings and applications for extensions.

The client was impressed with the way we took their key elemental needs and translated them into easy to understand proposal sketches and layouts.

We created a planting scheme, designed the surface water drainage system and utilised the existing buildings to form a cohesive and pleasing layout offering a wide range of different vistas within the scheme that could only be viewed by traversing the site whilst ensuring key access to the kitchens and studios would not interfere with the quiet spaces.

Design internal layout sketch for a glamping wagon interior. 

Whilst a 9m x 2.5m footprint offers almost infinite scope for individual preference the key elements of kitchen, sleeping, washing and recreational space require clever and innovative planning and we can offer sample layouts that have been carefully prepared to maximise the space, light and potential.

We listen carefully to the client and produce draft drawings and renders that can indicate how a plan will work before settling upon a final design
