A Garden Room that does it all
This functional, smart-looking multi-use garden room was built through snow and rain… but the project was completed in just three weeks – in Tunbridge Wells.
Planning and head height
The bespoke element of the project didn’t stop with the half height wall…
In order for the gym space to be used effectively for overhead work, the ceiling height of the studio needed to be 2.3m. So, to ensure the building remained within permitted development regulations, we dug down 150mm to sink the floor of the building – to give more internal height.
You can see that the internal floor of the garden room is very close to being level with the garden. Whereas, in most other garden room builds there is a step up into the room. This is also a great solution for anyone needing a fully accessible room with easy wheelchair/pram access to a building.
The half wall gives more potential sites for power sources, too. Meaning that the office space can be set out and changed effectively with minimal cables!
Three sets of double power sockets were installed. More than enough for multiple computers, printers, Wifi points etc.
Hidden storage is a fantastic way to ensure that replacing a garden shed doesn’t result in loss of useful storage space. Plus, it’s much more attractive! Can you spot the external storage door?
On this occasion the client wanted a very specific type of external cladding, so rather than supply our cedar or Thermowood, we helped them to source the perfect cladding for the project. The result was an attractive rustic feel with an interesting texture.
Sleek aluminium frames for the bi-folding doors and full screens were complimented by the brushed stainless steel external socket covers.
Power sockets were installed on the floor of the gym area. These are a great addition where gym equipment or machinery is to be installed.
These high level mounted units climate control units are also a smart way of saving wall space and ensuring that in this case a large room is heated/cooled evenly despite this room is divided by a half-height wall.
“From the time that we contacted Vivid Green to the time that they left the site, the building team and everyone associated was super professional. We are delighted with the end result and would recommend them to anyone.”
