THE TEA HOUSE
Dumfries & Galloway
As well as our cabins and treehouses, we build smaller, bespoke projects, such as our customisable Stargazers. This elegant and beautifully detailed Tea House was designed to create a calm contemplative space that would sit on an elevated deck at the top of the garden, and be used as a yoga space and studio.
Each element of the Tea House was hand built at Echo's workshop. Douglas Fir was chosen for its strength as structural framing. Built with elegant Japanese pegged timber joints, it also has an interior inspired by traditional Japanese architecture. Internal walls lined with pale, poplar timber panels inside timber frames are reminiscent of Shoji screens. Minimal shelving, paper light shades and hand forged door handles complete the space.
Entry is through a sliding door to the rear, and on warm, sunny days, larger double glazed sliding doors open the full corner of the building to the deck Underfloor heating; insulated walls, roof and floor; and double glazed windows and doors make the Tea House a year round retreat.
