Construction costs vary depending on where you live, who you hire and which materials you select (there are more and less expensive material alternatives throughout the building). Consult with your builder for a materials list and estimated project cost.

The footprint of the garden studio these plans are based on is 12' X 8'. The roof area is approximately 16' X 11'. You may or may not need to obtain a building permit before you begin construction, depending on where you live. If you do need a permit, some municipalities require you to leave a set of plans on file (two sets are included: one for your project, one for the city inspector).

"What distinguishes this set of plans is tried and tested design, photographs of the building being erected (most building plans available on the web have not been built by their designer), well thought out architecture and an attention to detail more typical of custom homes. You will find that if you decide to build this building, my plans are one of the least expensive items that will save you the most money over the course of the project. Any experienced and design-savvy carpenter/contractor can adapt these plans to fit your needs and budget depending on which details you keep and what materials you use."
