We’re on the Green Art blog – ‘Trend-setting Garden Design’

From the Blog: Inside and out

The first is the merging of inside and outside; the flow from the house to the garden using the same materials to create an extension of the home outside. We’re seeing a real increase in demand for outdoor kitchens,garden gyms and garden offices as testament to this. Whether this involves new, purpose built buildings or dedicated open garden areas depends on the scope and ambition of the project (or client).

Not only new, but also older, existing re-purposed structures can form part of the extension of the home to outside. The Grottage is the latest conversion of the often redundant, cluttered garage into a garden room that can be a clever, low cost alternative to a purpose-built building.

BBC World Service – listen from your garden room, not your shed.

bbc-world-service-tv-ad-2016

The BBC World Service TV advert takes outdoor living to a whole new level!

However the chilly-looking listener could do with an upgrade from a draughty shed to a contemporary garden room which is fully insulated and comes with all the mod-cons.

Watch the BBC World Service television advert here.

What’s included in our garden rooms?

Remember, our garden rooms are not sheds. The way our garden rooms are constructed is more akin to building a timber framed house. Besides, SIP panels are recognised as a standard form of construction and are widely used for many types of domestic building, including houses.

Our Features and Options section will give you all the specifications about our garden buildings, right at your fingertips. To mention a few great reasons for you to build with us:

  • Built to last. Our garden rooms come with a 10-year structural warranty.
  • Insulated and warm all year round with our SIPs (Structurally Insulated Pannels), which are specifically designed for your garden room, office or studio. This means you can comfortably use your heated garden room in winter and it won’t cost you the earth in energy bills!
  • You have a say in the interior and exterior design throughout. All our garden buildings are built to your needs.
  • All our garden buildings come fully fitted and finished, so we’re the only people you need.
  • We also have a highly skilled team of office staff who are on hand to help and advise you every step of the way.

I’m afraid dinosaurs, protesters, divers and scary dolls are not included with our Garden Lodges.

Garden Lodge South West London

 

In the back of this London home, in an attractive suburb sits this wonderfully styled Garden Lodge with recessed doors and a slight overhang creating an interesting shape to the build. The customers have a small decked area to the front of the lodge, giving enough space to walk around the front of the lodge, all the way up to the far side where the storage room is located.

The storage room at the far end has an internal space of 3.42m2 this is a great space to keep garden equipment, or any outdoor equipment.

The lodge looks onto the back of the house and is to be used as extra space for the children and as an office when required.

Our garden studios take just a few weeks to construct, weather permitting a build can be finished within a month from the start date, this is capable due to our construction method using SIPs panels. The lodge does not require planning permission due to its size. The lodge is built on top of concrete pad foundations, then on top of that, timber bearers and sips panels constructed at our warehouse are placed on top. The SIPs panels are are custom made for each build at our warehouse then transported to site.

The interior of the build is finished in matt white emulsion, with chrome down lights, polished chrome double power sockets and wood laminate flooring. All electrics are installed and tested by us. We always make sure to clear our on-site rubbish, as well as give the new garden room a good clean before handing over the keys.

Garden Lodge Portsmouth

This garden lodge in Portsmouth, is being used as an office/meeting room, as well as an art studio. The customer has partitioned the room using the large wooden dividers, though this has separated the room it hasn’t particularly had much of an impact on the feel of space in the room.

 

The lodge at the front has decking at the front which has been put together very well, and the customer should be commended here as they constructed this. At Garden Lodges we do build and place decking if requested; see some of our previous builds. The entry to the lodge located at the front with the large set of bifold doors, allowing the lodge to open out into the garden, and to what should soon be a lovely decked and flowered area once the planters have been completed. Inside the lodge dividers have been placed to split the room and create some storage space behind them. The lodge also houses a small bathroom with toilet and vanity unit.

 

Our garden studios take just a few weeks to construct, weather permitting a build can be finished within a month from the start date, this is capable due to our construction method using SIPs panels. The lodge does not require planning permission due to its size. The build is constructed on top of the existing patio already on site, starting with timber bearers then the sips panels constructed at our warehouse are placed on top. The SIPs panels are are custom made for each build at our ware house then transported to site. The roof of this build is EPDM-lined and installed at a pitch to allow rainwater drainage, this build also has a sedum roof installed this is not only a visual addition to the build, the roof can provide better insulation both sound and temperature, it can also provide an important micro-climate for birds insects and other possibly rare species.

 

The interior of the build is finished in matt white emulsion, with chrome down lights, polished chrome double power sockets and wood laminate flooring. All electrics are installed and tested by us. We always make sure to clear our on-site rubbish, as well as give the new garden room a good clean before handing over the keys.
