Custom Cedar Studio with Pergola

This cedar cladded studio with pergola was custom built to the client’s needs. The client wanted additional storage from his home to safely store many different items. Just like a home, this shed uses 2×4 construction with 1/2 plywood sheathing, 60mm building paper, while being cladded with 1×10 board and batten cedar siding. The pergola is constructed of solid 6×6 cedar posts, 4×6 cedar beam and rough sawn 2×4’s. The pergola is covered with a glass and aluminium cover to provide shelter for the client’s hot tub. The shed is electrified with lights, has one electrical outlet plug on the floor and two on a work bench, and has a thermostat which controls an electric baseboard heater. The shed walls and ceiling are insulated and finished with half inch spruce plywood.
