Offices

“An excellent working environment that is light, spacious comfortable and all your own. Much better than
most offices.”

 

Our practical timber offices, available from our North Tawton site are designed to be efficient in terms of utilisation of space and heat retention.

The attractive appearance of our timber home offices and studios will blend well into your garden.  The pressure treated shiplap cladding will fade with time, although the preservatives in the timber will go on working for years.

Security is given high priority.  The double glazed windows have locking catches and the doors are fitted with 5 lever mortice locks.

The size of your timber office, and layout of doors and windows will be made to your requirements, as we manufacture bespoke timber buildings.

The maximum width available is 6m with all lengths available, increasing in increments of 600mm.

Insulation of the building is an important part of the construction.  The floor, walls and roof are all insulated and the windows have double glazing.  Together with the good thermal value of wood, this offers excellent U values for insulation.
Internal partition walls are available, as required.

The interior walls and ceilings of our insulated home offices are lined with MDF (Medium Density Fibreboard) to give a smooth finish, ready for painting.  A skirting board is fitted to provide the finishing touch.  Standard ceilings are installed level at eaves height.  We also offer an attractive tongue and groove pine finish with a vaulted ceiling.

For electrical work we offer a full service including lighting, power points and heating including installation by a qualified electrician.  Alternatively you are welcome to make your own arrangements.

Why not visit our display area, based in North Tawton, to view our large range of bespoke Timber Home Offices and Garden Studios.
