With the confined space, the Kitchen had to be able to transform into a Living room, and vice versa.
The TV unit pops up in front of the window – meaning that it can be a bench by day and TV stand by night.
The couch/kitchen table was designed by Ralph Alphonso and built in collaboration with 2nd Chance Tables, using recycled timber to construct the beautiful tabletop.
The table sits as the backrest for the couch, and pivots on a pin into a comfortable sofa. The stools transition between table chairs and footrest, and it is upholstered by Martel Upholstery with the fabric from Woven Image.

The Hot Tub up on the roof is finally ready to go, and doesn’t it just look fantastic!
Just like the theory of the rest of the house, it has the ability to be a cool plunge pool in summer, and a steamy spa during winter.
The cedar smells wonderful, and the Hot Tub from Ukko Hot Tubs that was installed so long ago is now in full use.
With the offsite construction of the custom designed bed, it was time to install it in the future bedroom of the 5×4 Building. This had to be done early before the stairs had balustrades installed, because it wouldn’t fit otherwise!. See the video below, or head to our YouTube channel BarleyStore for the full 5×4 Hayes Lane Project playlist.
The queen size bed base for 5×4 has been installed in the 2nd floor. Of course, with space at a premium, it’s been kitted out with as many storage units as it can hold. Bit by bit, the 5×4 Buiding is taking shape.
The Couch/Dining room table has been custom made to fit the building.
The piece had to be compact and needed to be used as both a couch and a table. The solution was a roll-over design, created by owner-builder Ralph. Both Ralph and 2nd Chance Tables built the piece of furniture together.
Water has been added to the hot tub, completing the final step of the installation.
The tub, crafted by Ukko, is designed to leak for the first few days until the wood expands and fills in any gaps.
With water in the tub, the smell of the wood is filling the top level of the build. The tub has a corona discharge ozonator and an ioniser which means the water will have minimal chemicals.
