Garden room built tight the boundaries

Garden Fortress have recently completed this contemporary style garden room in a small London garden.

As is typical of many urban gardens, the plot was tight with limited access.


The clients wanted to maximise the size of room they could create. So Garden Fortress designed a room under 2.5m high to comply with Planning Permission rules on positioning close to the boundaries of a garden. The building was sited very tight to the fence / wall leaving only enough room for the roof guttering to be fitted.


The resulting room is 4.2 meters wide by 2.7 meters deep so is not a bad size. The space has been maximised by the addition of aluminium bi-fold doors which open up the room onto the garden.

The interior has the feel of a room in a house with plastered walls and ceiling and wooden floor.


Garden Fortress offer a good electrical specification on their garden rooms, you can see the recessed down lights in the image above. The standard electrics are included in the price of the garden room.


The only aspect of the building that is priced up separately is the connection of the garden rooms electrical system to the mains supply. This is because the price for this aspect of the build depends on the distance of the building from the house. Garden Fortress’s electrician can price this work up for you or you can engage a local electrician to undertake the work.
