The 400 sq ft Slough Garden House features timber construction and timber window and door frames that were all sourced from FSC [1] or PEFC [2] certified sources. Foam insulation boards with secondary thermoreflective foil membranes ensure effective insulation and act as a moisture barrier. Double glazed windows finish out the thermal envelope and the entire structure is clad in Western Red Cedar, which is durable and requires no treatment.

The high-performance wall, roof, and floor were all prefabricated and then assembled on site. Built on a concrete plinth system from Swift [3], each garden house could easily be moved off its foundation and relocated if necessary. Finally, the cantilevered roof provides sun and weather protection to the house and a sedum roof provides insulation and rainwater absorption. In.It.Studios can build these prefab annexes in a number of sizes and prices start [4] at £15,391.
