Famous writer's shed

The latest 3rdSpace project by Sawhorse Ltd is a writing studio and workshop completed this week for a famous UK author (we're respecting their wish for privacy and not naming them but you'll certainly have read their work) and was installed in three days on site.

Interestingly, the building sits within an open, Grade II listed barn to create an enclosed work environment. Ben Jardine from Sawhorse Ltd says: "When we went to survey the space we were amazed to find how well suited the existing barn was to one of our modular buildings - a standard two Bay model (2.4m x 3.6m) fitted perfectly inside with just enough room to spare for manoeuvring the wall panels into place." For this project, the company provided a full service, from liaising with local authorities and gaining planning approval, through to the final on-site installation.

It also a showcase two new 3rdSpace features, a double-door module which offers an unimpeded opening size of two metres in width, and external sliding louvre panels for sun shading constructed from aluminium and cedar. "It was a real pleasure completing this project," says Ben, knowing that one of its end uses was to be used for furniture-making and woodworking. Although the interior is modern and light, it is extremely useful for our customer to have the exposed structure and power points, and Birch ply walls that can be drilled straight into for hanging tools up."

  1. It is one of my goals this year to do a survey for writing studios. I really love seeing writer’s working area because they all have creative room designs.
