The Dart

A self-contained living space offering modern additional accommodation as an alternative to an annexe extension. This modern garden room has been designed as a ‘Caravan’ to compliment The Caravan Act planning guidelines. 

The light and bright cabin with its attractive curved roof includes provision for a generous bathroom, optional kitchenette and mezzanine sleep deck (via ladder). 

Insulated to Building Regulations level, triple glazed and fitted with a cosy wood burner The Dart is a modern garden room that will provide year-round comfort for you or your guests. 

Planning

With a curved roof the cabin embraces the planning criteria of a Caravan or Permitted Development. By fitting within this planning criteria the cabin offers an alternative route to legal development. The interior ceiling height is limited to 3.05m which in turn creates an extremely spacious living space.

Please call us for more information or read our brief guide to planning.

Dimensions: 7m(L)x 3m(W)x 3.5(H)

Build

Most of the Dart Cabin will be prefabricated at our workshops and brought to site. Once the footings are prepared the pre fabricated elements can be installed quickly limiting the amount of time we are onsite.

The Dart Cabin will have electrics and a log burner for hot water, lighting and heating.

Materials 

Life Space Cabins specify the materials used to build the The Dart. The materials are chosen for durability and aesthetics that will suit any context where it is placed.  The Dart comes as standard using these materials 
  • Structure:  Timber stud sheathed panel
  • Insulation: Actis Hybris or Wood Fibre
  • External:Black corrugated tin and Larch cladding
  • Internal walls: OSB or Plywood
  • Windows/door: Rationel triple glazed

We specify fittings and fixtures from leading brands that we work with such as Rationel windows, Clearview stoves and Lindab guttering. We can tweak the specification as required though the cost may vary. Grains, textures and colours may vary from those shown.

Customisation

Customise your cabin by fitting a hand made plywood kitchen and roof window in the mezzanine to allow further light into the sleep deck area. We recognise that by adapting a design and introducing you to further options it will give you the flexibility to tailor the aesthetics and functionality of the space and ensure its specific to your project.

Simple design amendments can often be undertaken for a small charge, although changes that affect the structure, will result in re-engineering and remodelling the design will have a larger impact on the final design and build costs.

Life Space Cabins Service 

We specialise in the design and build of amazing smaller spaces. We like to take responsibility and have fun with each of our projects.

Each project will come with a varying need for project management, we can take care of the whole project or agree on a suitable package of works for your budget.

As standard Life Space Cabins will offer guidance on helping you choose the right cabin for your site, plus light-touch guidance on planning permission. We can come to your site and give an appraisal which can cover market demand (rental), access, site location, service infrastructure, engineering and independent planning advice (from one of our expert consultants).

We will always make you aware if your project costs are likely to extend beyond the standard. 

The best thing to do is call us on 01364 705057 or contact us to chat through your ideas and to see what is possible.
