The modular nature of Vivid Green buildings means that we can create endless shapes and layouts in our garden room designs. Our client in Northampton wanted a garden room that looked more ‘house like’ than other designs they had seen.
On the whole this was a fairly straightforward build, but we had to be extra careful with the positioning of the garden room as the client was in the process of simultaneously having their garden landscaped, and the garden room had to fit within the new design.
Fortunately our ground screw foundations were very helpful in this situation – as they do not require any heavy machinery or messy digging to install. This meant minimal disturbance to the ground around the build, and less mess for the clients and landscapers.
Here’s a shot of the site pre build. As you can see it was a very flat and easy space to work in. An installers dream!
Double fronted for house-like style
One of the simplest ways to mimic a traditional home style is through clever positioning of windows.
In some cases, clients prefer to have one large bifolding door, in order for the front of the building to open up. In this case, the client still had plenty of light coming in through two very large square windows either side of sliding patio doors. From the inside this made the room feel very home-like, and from the outside it looked like a small bungalow.
The building was quite large, 6 x 3m internally, which makes for a very usable family room that can also be used as a guest space should the need arise.
A high level climate control unit was added to make the space cool or warm year round, and multiple double sockets were installed to make for easy and changeable position of electronic items.
A practical laminate flooring was installed, and a narrow step of composite decking was included outside.
And here’s the finished build!
Thermowood cladding and external LED downlights finished it off.
