This Riverside Summer House Cabin was created for a private client in Devon. The original brief was to create a flexible and beautiful place to enhance the garden and soak up the tremendous views of the River Yealm.
The cabin’s intended use was for a summer social bar area or occasional sleeping den (in case of an over indulgent summer lunch). The summer house cabin is broken into two spaces: An insulated enclosed space, designed to be a retreat on cooler days, this space is fully insulated using 125mm Structurally Insulated Panel or SIPs for short. The summer house cabin then has the benefit of a covered veranda with oak decking for alfresco dining or socialising. This area gives reassurance and protection from South Devon’s inclement weather. There is an additional feature of this cabin by extending the eaves of the one side of the roof we were able to create a log store area.
