My first sketchup render - it's all to scale - but I don't know about the roller shutter yet

OK – it’s not an ecospace studio yet(!) – just the first stab at seeing how the windows fit into the overall space I’ve got – and I don’t reckon it’s too bad. I plan on building the walls out of a sandwich of “kingspan” insulated foam panels glued to sheets of weatherproof Oriented Strand Board (OSB3). They’ll be hung from 4inch square timber posts sunk in concrete post-holders at the four corners and butting up to either side of the doors. I’ll then clad the whole lot in cedar (if I can afford it).

I plan on insulating the floor of the office section with more kingspan and making the roof out of the same kingspan/OSB sandwich. I’m in two minds about felting the roof or putting a sedum “living roof” up there – again price will be the key. I welcome your comments! (click the “0 Comments”) link below.
