Garden Lodge built in South London

Depth: 3.68m
Height: 2.49m
External Area: 17.22m2

This lodge makes a lovely addition to this home south London. It is going to be used as space for the owners childcare business, as well as extra space for family events and parties. Finished with vertically placed Western Red Cedar gives a rustic but modern style to the lodge and it compliments the space nicely as it fits with the wooden fence that runs along either side of the lodge. There is still some work to be done by the family as they plan to build some steps down to the lodge. The large doors and windows on the front of the lodge allow for plenty of light to fill the room, making it feel spacious and connected to the outside space.

The inside of the lodge has been painted in white, currently the lodge is quite empty but this is because it is going to be used for the owners business in childcare.

Concrete pad foundations are first installed, on top of that timber bearers holds up the structurally insulated panels or SIPs, make up the shell of the garden building. The SIPs panels provide superior thermal performance which will last the life span of the building, and be cheaper to heat then a standard brick build.

The rubber EPDM-lined roof is installed at a slight pitch to allow for drainage,and the windows and doors are fitted. Finally the walls are fully plastered and painted with a matt white emulsion and the floor is fitted. light fittings are installed and electrics which is all tested. We clear the on-site rubbish as well as a clean before the keys are handed over.
