We finished the exterior of a stone clad summer house some time ago. We wanted the stonework of the building to be very tight and to not show any gaps or mortar and so we selected a flat bedded Yorkshire sandstone. The three main windows were designed to let in natural light and to allude to Georgian symmetry. We also built the cabin with a large double doors that could be left open on a summers day.
The attention then turned to the interior which had to be wired, fitted, plastered and painted. The result is a relaxed creative office space that can double as a garden living room. The floor is two-inch thick Cornish slate, which lends a vintage look combined with the large local oak beams and window frames. We painted the interior with a shade of London Plane green which is perfect for a garden space.
