This was a commission to design and build a small cabin/bunkhouse for family and friends to stay and somewhere to use a base for educational school field trips and forest work. It had to be big enough to sleep four people but also small enough to fit into the old quarry comfortably and whilst minimising any visual impact . The basic floor plan was is 3m x 5m but we added a 1.5m x 5m lean-to on the front to fit a small bedroom with bunkbeds and a veranda. The main area would consist of a kitchen/living space with a mezzanine to fit a double bed. The roof has been made asymmetrical with a clerestory between the main roof and the lean-to to allow people sleeping in the mezzanine to look out into the forest. We also added a bolt-on kitchen unit on the side maximising the floor space inside the cabin whist still providing an area to house a sink, cooker and some where to cook. All the timber is Oak and was cut from his own woods. Once finished the cabin will have a Ash floor boards and sarking with a straw-clay and lime plaster infill.
