Some garden room designers will adapt their designs so that they can be used as house extensions; one such supplier is JML Garden Rooms who are based in Scotland.
JML’s sister company make structural insulated panels (SIP’s) for houses, so they have a lot of experience in designing both houses and garden rooms, so a garden room extension is an obvious progression.
JML Garden Rooms, Edinburgh based client had previously purchased one of their Lowlander garden rooms and was so happy with the room and the build process that he approached them to build a similar style extension to his house.
The customer lives in a Conservation Area, so both Planning Permission and a Building Warrant applications needed to be made, JML Garden Rooms handled these applications on their client’s behalf making this a stress free process.
JML Garden Rooms have created a clean, contemporary extension which looks sharp against the elegant lines of the Georgian property. The 5m x 3m extension has created a multifunction space which flows off the main house.
The extension is built upon a SIP’s core structure. JML used 150mm thick SIP’s instead of the 100mm SIP’s they commonly use on their garden rooms. This upgrade enhanced the insulation values meaning the extension meets with current Building Regulations.
Triple glazed, Scandinavian Alu-Clad doors and windows have been used, the glazing floods the room with natural light and creates a great connection with the garden.
The exterior of the extension is finished in Western Red Cedar which is both an attractive and low maintenance option. Cedar cladding starts out a rich reddish brown colour, but once exposed to light will change to a subtle silver-grey. If you want to preserve the original colouring, you can apply a UV protector to the boards as they are fitted.
A similar extension would start at about £27,000.
