This garden office is a 12' x 12' (3640mm x 3640mm) and Stephen, its owner, decided not to fill in the gaps below his studio but instead to have some plants planted there. This also "softens" the look of your garden studio.
Alex Booth prefers this "open" option because it maintains an airflow below your studio which means rising damp will never be an issue. It's also saves you the expense of adding a skirt.
Customers often ask me about foxes living under their garden studio and in all the years we have been going (since year 2000:-) I haven't had a single customer have foxes living under their garden studio so it's a very rare occurence. The base system used for the QC Garden Studio is extremely flexible. Not only does it eliminate the cost and hassle of laying a concrete base (it's fine to lay on an existing concrete base if it's already there), but it can accomodate very severe slopes - one end of your garden studio can be up to a metre higher than the other end.
As long is your site is clear of bushes, trees or any other obstacles, then your garden studio can be installed. It can also be over different surfaces - grass, soil, gravel, concrete - the unique "FabSlab" base system can cope with this.
The photo below shows a 18' x 12' (5460mm x 3640mm) LoLine QC garden studio on a severe slope. Andy who owns the garden studio and uses it as an office says he feels like he's "working in the woods" - which he was really pleased about.
The gap below the garden studio was eventually filled in with "skirting' to hide the base struts and finish off the look.
The photo below shows the "skirting" which can be installed if you want to cover the gaps...
If you have the studio skirting onto grass, we have to install brickwork as this helps protect the skirting from strimmers...
This photo shows a 16' x 8' (4.8m x 2.44m) QCB with extra support struts required as the legs were longer than 200mm on the left side. This saves the expense and hassle of doing major groundworks...(please ask for price for this option)
Adding a few flower pots or trees around your garden office helps blend it into your garden and makes it look like it's always been there:-)...It also avoids the expense of adding skirting.

After nearly two weeks of having my new office I wanted to give some feedback.
The installation was faultless from start to finish, the guys were brilliant at working on the exact location I requested (left a bit, right a bit... You get the picture!). They were also fantastic at putting up with my inquisitive children pestering them for answers, and I thank them for this. I still struggle to believe this was built in less than 12 hours, please pass on my thanks to the team.
The office itself is brilliant - the size, shape, height and visual appeal is perfect and worth the 18 months of research before I committed to your company. I would be honoured to show future prospective customers of yours too so please bear me in the mind for the future.
I thank you for putting up with my many emails, questions and amendments. When we move house I will be back in touch for either a move of this office or a brand new one.
