Open sided garden room
We were approached by the client to design and build a replacement structure as the timber and felt lean to they had on the side of their property was leaking, unsightly and needed updating. We worked with the client on a design which minimised groundworks and structural work to the cottage, while maximising the space for the covered area.
We all wanted to use materials that complimented the cottage but also offered plenty of natural light through the roof. All of the garden room frame and wall T and G are oak. We used a painted softwood T and G in the covered area to match the existing in the kitchen for continuity and create a nice flow from the kitchen to the new outdoor area. A natural slate roof with lots of lovely lead detailing was installed which complimented the toughened bronze glass roof brilliantly.
The client’s are thrilled with the result and we hope you like it to.
Oak garden office
Charter Alley, Hampshire
A couple saw our advert in a local magazine and after viewing our website were really keen to talk to us regarding their plans.
With a baby on the way, and a house short of space, they contacted us to see if we create a home office at the bottom of their garden using a similar style to our oak workshops. To keep things simple and reduce build time they didn’t want to go through the planning process. Although it was important to us that we still produced a quality timber building that would add value to their home. By creating a building within the permitted rules for a structure not to require planning permission, we were able to complete this within their time frame.
The client approached us and asked if we would provide the oak frame, glazing and roofing for their building. They wanted to replace the existing lean-to with an oak sun room to create a nice new area for themselves and the dogs. The client installed the foundations, floor and brickwork themselves and we did the rest.
We were all delighted with the end result.
