Lol a hobbit studio would be amazing! I’d have a cheese cellar and everything!
Yep, the Uk is very different as our climate is wet and humid… I know Sweden can be a little wet but it’s definitely not a humid environment aha. I watched a documentary on the BBC last year that talked about why we prefer brick housing. They used Snow as the main reason and compared European snow to British snow. Apparently our climate creates wet snow which is colder and damper, where European snow is very dry in comparison and causes less problems as it actually keeps the ground warmer as it’s a better insulator. Was really interesting. They also spoke on other topics but that’s what I took away from it.
Yeah I’m definitely going all out with it. Way back when, I studied music tech in college which taught us the rudiments of acoustics and sound insulation so I have a good idea of that stuff. I’ll be learning a lot of the construction stuff on the job so I’ll probably do a lot of the work and pay someone to assist me who works in the industry, which will ensure I’m doing things right, thankfully some work coleg yes have given me all of the uk regulations and that’s really helped to start to piece the plan together.
I think if I were to make it out of wood alone, I would ultimately run into problems around ten years down the line. Though going down this route I’ll need to get minor planning permission slips. If it was wood I wouldn’t need any permission as long as it was under 2.7m tall as it would be classed as a non fixed building unit.
