Myndstone Garden Buildings Technical Guide:

At Myndstone, we are dedicated to helping you create your perfect garden building within your desired budget. To assist you, we have outlined a comprehensive overview of features that come standard with your garden building, along with additional options that might pique your interest.

FOUNDATIONS

Standard: Our approach to foundations adheres strictly to building regulation requirements. We prioritise long-term durability over quick fixes. Your garden building will rest securely on concrete or composite pad foundations or mini piles.

RING BEAM

Standard: Our garden buildings incorporate a robust, steel-reinforced ring beam, enhancing stability, accuracy, and strength, providing a solid base for your new space.

STRUCTURE & INSULATION

Standard: Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) form the primary structural elements of your building, ensuring a minimum wall thickness of 185mm for exceptional heat insulation and airtightness.

Options: We offer wider profile SIPs, resulting in wall thicknesses of 210mm and 235mm for enhanced thermal and sound insulation.
