Our wonderful customers from Dorset wanted to achieve a stylishly simple Garden Room with high-quality finishes, to be used as an extra flexible space to the main home. To get this look, they chose our popular Western Red Cedar exterior finish, with a matching decked area for them to sit out on and use in the summer months.

Inside the Garden Room they wanted a sleek and modern finish, so they chose our contemporary grey laminate flooring colour and chrome downlights, switches and plug sockets. To achieve the look of expensive aluminium frame windows and doors without the high price tag, we advised to choose our grey UPVC option, cutting the cost significantly.

Overall, the Garden Studio took just 4 weeks to construct and didn’t require planning permission, due to its height and overall size. Concrete pad foundations are installed first, where the structurally insulated panels (SIPs), which make up the shell of the Garden Building, are fitted on top of timber bearers.

The flat rubber EPDM-lined roof is then installed at a slight degree pitch to allow for rainwater drainage, and the windows and doors are fitted. Finally the walls are fully plastered and painted in matt white emulsion and the flooring is fitted. The electric and light fittings are also installed and tested. We always make sure to clear our on-site rubbish away, as well as give the new Garden Room a good clean before handing over the keys.
