The Whitfeld Summer-house was built in Sussex, England. The brief was to use recycled/re-purposed materials as possible and also for it to be hand-crafted and warm. to this end we sourced most of the framing timber from the Brighton & Hove Wood Recycling project, roof tiles were salvaged from a demolition yard. The walls were 200mm thick achieved with 4×2 staggered studs (this is an effective way to minimise thermal bridging) and insulated with blown in cellulose. We clad the building in oak weatherboards. The interior was lime plastered over reed matting with some panels of beech that was milled from a tree onsite.
