A few months ago we showed you the conceptual images for a new range of garden rooms by Sawhorse Ltd called 3rdSpace, and we have been retweeting photos as the garden room have been developed. This weekend the 3rd Space range will be launched at the Hay Festival playing host to Unbound.
The 3rdSpace garden room is unique in the market as it can be clad in a wide variety of exterior claddings from mirrored panels, terracotta tiles, timber shingles, copper panels, laser cut panels, all glass and following our article on garden rooms with living walls we are pleased to see that living walls are an option too! Each cladding type gives the garden room a very different look and feel.

Ben Jardine of Sawhorse Ltd explains the concept:
Bringing together the clean, honest aesthetics of great modern architecture and the natural beauty of hand-crafted timber construction, our garden rooms create the perfect environment in which to be inspired. Thanks to our modular design, you can enjoy the freedom to customise and personalise your 3rd Space, with a vast array of options for interior & exterior materials and configurations to suit your surroundings.”
From the photos the team have sent through it is clear that they have a high attention to detail, the intersections between the Douglas Fir post and beam framework and cedar cladding is very crisp. Internally we like they way the roller blind mechanism is concealed in the ceiling / window aperture.
3rd Space garden rooms are built using FSC certified timber, the post and beam frame is Douglas Fir, and there is a wide range of cladding options as outlined above. Internally furniture grade plywood is used on the walls and ceiling and the floor is covered in natural rubber. The garden room is insulated for year round use and electrically wired.
A 1 Bay model (2.4m x 2.4m) starts at £13,800 whilst a 3 Bay model (4.2m x 2.4m) from £19,200 these prices include VAT and installation to mainland UK.
