I’ve started the build for a small woodworking workshop. It’s going to be 15m2 ( measuring from the outside walls) as that’s the maximum I can build without a building permit. I will have a “shed roof”, with one large sliding set of windows of 4m towards the north to avoid direct sunlight (when we sell the house somebody else can use it as a studio for instance). I plan to put a small deck in front of the window too. The building including the foundation will be around 3m high at the front (window side).
I just finished the foundation and floor base. Attached are some pictures on the progress. If there’s an interest I’ll document the project here, let me know.
I had to take out some trees that were close to the house and started to lean in, so I used the freed up space for the workshop building. I used 12 x 1.2m long screws that were drilled in the ground, on which I have built a wooden base frame. For the surrounding trees, this is better than a concrete foundation according to my tree-guy (or arborist).
Next is starting the framing for the walls, starting tomorrow.

The Total height of the structure is 3m (max for a buildimg without a permit here). The subfloor is at 40cm. So once finished internal height to ceiling Will be around 235cm at heighest point, 215 at lowest.
Just out of curiosity. I didn’t see the “ubiquitous yellow plastic pipe” carrying electric cables. I mean, after insulation and a heat-pump you will be very set.
