If you're looking for an ancient oak-framed garden office, have a browse through the web site of Dunsford-based Antique Buildings which supply everything from a beam to a building. They have a massive stock of reclaimed ancient oak beams saved from buildings which sadly are no longer with us plus complete frames of a couple of dozen buildings, including several suitable for a shedworker. They can also supply handmade peg tiles, bricks, stone, floorboards, and ironwork. You're too late for the Bishops Waltham Granary above (c.1700, 14ft square, ideal for a garden room office or studio) which has just been sold, but pictured below is Frittleworth Barn from c. 1700 which once stood at Fittleworth, West Sussex, 28ft by 17.5ft and, say Antique Buildings, would be ideal for a studio.
