The Roomworks team was approached by a customer who wanted to create a contemporary extension on the side of their Listed cottage. Working on a Listed Building always throws up some challenges, but the Roomworks team is always up for a challenge!
Roomworks Paul Barton explains the project:
Couldn’t resist this one though and although it is local it presented a few challenges: Listed building, affecting the street scene in a conservation area and five very large well protected Lime trees within 450mm of the proposed extension. The tree officer said there could be absolutely no excavation because of the root systems. Our client was determined to find a way though and found us.
We proposed a screw-pile foundation systems and designed a sensitive solution with glass link that has now ticked all the planning boxes and permission has just been approved. We start the build in about 4 weeks and will cover the build with movie clips, photos etc.
So watch this space come out of the ground!
As you can see the garden room extension is a sharp contrast to the traditional building. It features many of the design trends popular in standalone garden room design such as the floor to ceiling glazing which wraps around the corner of the building and the vertical cedar cladding.
We particularly like the glass hall which connects the main house to the new room. A clever way of connecting old and new.
We are really looking forward to seeing this building progress.
