This thread is to document the build of my summerhouse cinema. We live in a conservation area and therefore have had to submit a planning application. This is now with the council and we are awaiting a decision. This is the site location: And to the left side of the plot, on the boundary with No. 12 we are going to build this: The build will consist of trench foundations with a blue brick plinth and concrete floor, similar to house foundations. The frame will then be 150mm thick with 75mm offset studs. Inside will be two layers of soundproofing plasterboard with the famous green glue. The building will then be timber cladded. There will be a sloped EPDM roof. A photo of the plot at the start of the build. This has already had a huge amount of clearance carried out, although more to be done. We will use a digger to level the land and then construct a retaining wall. The idea is to have a dual use building that is part man-cave and part cinema. The window on the south elevation will have desks in front of it for my computer and 3D printers etc. The rest of the room will be a cinema. The view from the desk will be of the following: We have started to remove the old foundations and block work from an old greenhouse: This is where we are today. We have a tree-surgeon booked to remove two of the apple trees but are also awaiting the council to approve the works under a separate planning application.
