“Gembuild, based in Horsham, West Sussex are members of the Federation of Master Builders and have been designing, manufacturing and building in timber frame since 1985. In recent years we have specialised in garden buildings and offer a national service to all parts of the UK . Our buildings are so good and the designs so flexible that they can even be and are used as secondary accommodation. The greatest difference between our timber frames and the plank, panel and conservatory type buildings which are predominant in the garden building market is the size and construction of our walls, floors and roofs. For example, our walls are 170mm thick and include a traditional cavity which is up to 4 times as big as most of the competition. Not only do we provide a superb building, but our prices are the best in the market and in simple terms you get a great deal more for your money.

modified floor conversion called a 25, for our Mini Barn and Synchro ranges which brings the buildings to within the 2.5m height restriction now required within 2m of the boundary. Our 25 series are less than 2.5m high and can be built up to the boundary. You can also add extra windows and doors. In fact whatever you may need Gembuild can do it! Gembuild for your Garden office….. Starting at just £3,950.00, our offices are sized and priced to suit your business. Often the VAT is recoverable and there can be good tax advantages. The saving in rent & insurance will pay for your garden office typically within a year. Garden Studios can be lit for artists in oil, watercolour and ink or soundproofed for a recording or music studio.

Our designs can be made to your exact requirement and you can have the windows and door positioned to suit your garden and the power point layout designed to suit your furniture layout. We now provide a low roof and

Garden Rooms for childrens playrooms, bedrooms, gyms, etc. We can also build in bathrooms and kitchens to make a self-contained unit. The cost of one of our buildings will normally save approximately £25,000.00 on the price of a loft conversion as well as a great deal less hassle, and don't forget that a garden room will enhance the value of your property.

New for 2012:

Range This attractive range of buildings are designed to be aesthetically pleasing and blend happily into a garden environment.

Our Sussex mini barn range are ideal for use as a gym, studio, guest room, music room etc., these mini-barns will enhance your home to prospective purchasers. They are user-friendly creating the ideal outdoor working space with good lighting, excellent insulation and ample power points. We can tailor them to suit your own particular requirements; you can tell us where to position electrical points and lighting or add extra doors and windows (floor to ceiling if you like) & even include vaulted ceilings, showers & wireless burglar alarms. Current personalised projects include one for a drummer - with all the sound challenges that entails. Others have been made for judges, artists, musicians, writers, insurance brokers, surveyors, builders, architects, letting agents and doctors - or simply for extra accommodation. With above-ground construction being identical to a modern timber-framed home, as being currently built by most national house builders, they have that 'new home' feel. They can be used 365 days of the year and are insulated to the highest standards (giving uvalues of 0.22 to the floor, 0.33 to the walls and 0.23 to the roof). By extending the Capel mini barn you can create a self contained home. We have previously built Park homes and have included various elevations and layouts. Please ring if you should require any further information on these units. Our Synchro range of garden offices will appeal to those looking for a more contemporary design while our new Neoteric range offers the versatility strength and appeal of a post and beam system and offers a new dimension in possibilities. With all garden offices we can now offer cedar shingles as an alternative roof finish and you can of course adapt any of the designs. You can re-position doors and windows to suit your own site and position power points to suit your own desk layout. With the Sussex mini barn range you can also increase the length of the buildings as you wish and add extra windows, power points and lighting.

FAQ's Planning There have recently been changes to the planning these are as follows: The following is an extract from the planning website www.planningportal.gov.uk “Under the new regulations outbuildings are considered to be permitted development subject to the following limits and conditions.” No outbuilding on land forward of a wall forming the principal elevation. Outbuildings and garages to be single storey with a maximum eaves height of 2.5 metres and maximum overall height of four metres with a duo pitch roof or three metres for any other roof. Maximum height of 2.5 metres in the case of a building, enclosure or container within 2 metres of a boundary of the curtilage of the dwellinghouse. No verandas balconies or raised platforms. No more than half the area of land around the original house would be covered by additions or other buildings. In National Parks, the Broads, Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and World Heritage Sites the maximum area to be covered by buildings more than 20 metres from the house to be limited to 10 square metres. On designated land, buildings at the side of properties will require planning permission. Within the curtilage of listed buildings any outbuilding will require planning permission. Please note the permitted allowances described here apply to houses not flats, maisonettes or other buildings. The changes have made it easier to position you garden room nearer the house this is particularly helpful when using your garden room for ancillary bedrooms. We have addressed the height restrictions when closer than 2m to the boundary by introducing our “twenty five” option which by using a flattish box beam roof reduces all our Mini Barns and Synchros to under 2.5m.The roof on these has a wide overhang which gives the building a pleasing chalet appearance. Some of our recent 25s are pictured on the last page of this brochure. Delivery costs We keep these as reasonable as possible and will advise cost when we know your location. Service connections With the electric and water (if applicable) these are fairly straight forward and the cost will depend upon where you site your unit and its proximity to the main house. With the Capel you will need to check the level of your existing sewage system prior to ordering to ensure that a gravity pipe can be laid. If this is not possible you will need a pumped system. Terms 25% with order. 35% for Gembeam range. Residual amount to be paid by cheque upon delivery.

Please contact us if you have any questions, or need any further advice.
