Morph means form, but is also a convenient abbreviation of metamorphose, to transform.
Morphuts are small simple buildings, comprising a primary timber frame with modular insulated wall panels. The frame takes the load so the panels can be changed to suit changing requirements. So they have a long and very useful life. Fully insulated (to better than new house standards if required), and robustly constructed to be adapted over their long lifetime, Morphut cabins work well for lots of different uses.
Using a primary timber frame frees up the space inside so partitions can be moved, removed, added to or changed simply and without fuss. You can re-use the materials; they are standard and readily available if you need more.
They are arranged in structural bays, giving a standard internal depth of 3.8m (12'6"), and width in multiples of about 2.6m (8'6"), and there are several options for the roof shape. You can find details here.
Additional bays can be added to the sides or back later, with minimal disruption to the existing part. The connection is done by removing a wall panel when the new part is complete.
They are quickly erected onto concrete piles, with an engineered timber sub-frame raised off the ground by about 300mm (1'0") or more. The frame is put up and other elements fixed to it. This can be done all year round - a weather-tight envelope is quickly achieved. Click here to see the usual construction sequence.
