In the June issue of Timber IQ Roy Trembath tells us about his timber project in Wilderness Heights near George on the Garden Route in the Western Cape.
It all began when I needed a workshop – somewhere to do my work and store my tools. Roy’s Garden Shed began as a project to build a 140m² carpentry workshop and parking garage for four vehicles at my property in Wilderness Heights, near George in the Garden Route.
Log building is my speciality, and I have taught log home building courses to thousands of people. Building material for log homes is cheap, strong, economical, environmentally sustainable, and easy to work with. A tree is at its lowest value when standing in the forest.
Any building project begins with a blank sheet of paper and a pencil. At the beginning, when I am designing the building, my thought process is simply what do I want to see when I come down my driveway?
