Fully insulated garden room buildings make great clubhouses, offering comfortable, year-round facilities for groups. This 8m x 4m example was designed for a bowling club in Nantwich. Designed for use during practice and competition level games, a clever connection has been created between the inside and outside spaces.
Contemporary Garden Rooms were commissioned to design and build the clubhouse, based on their Apprentice range. The connection between indoor and outdoor spaces has been enhanced by the addition of two sets of 3 meter wide bi-fold doors. The doors will fold back to one side, allowing for easy access in and out of the building. The doors have been fitted with key code locks, so no one has to worry about a key! Working with a specialist company like Contemporary Garden Rooms, allows custom features such as this to be included in the design.
The bi-fold doors lead on to a veranda area, overlooking the bowling green. The height of this has been set so that it can be sat upon to observe the game. It’s clever how the Contemporary Garden Rooms team have tapered both ends creating a seamless ramp up. The addition of this makes the room accessible to all.
The exterior of the clubhouse has been clad in Western Red Cedar cladding, fitted horizontally. This is a low maintenance finish, which has a natural durability against rot and fungal attack. As the Cedar ages, it will change colour, from this reddish brown to a mellow silver grey.
High spec interior
Moving inside, as with all Contemporary Garden Rooms, the walls and ceiling have been plastered and decorated. An engineered oak floor was laid, this is a harder wearing alternative to laminate floors which are often chosen in domestic settings. Stainless steel electrical fittings have been used throughout. Contemporary Garden Rooms handle the connection of the rooms electrics to the mains supply, meaning there are no hidden costs. Many other companies ask you to arrange this connection once they have left the site.
While the building is highly insulated and double glazed, a heater is still needed for comfort on the coldest days of the year. There are several heating systems to choose from when building a garden room. In this case, an electric wall mounted heater fitted with thermostat and timer. This allows the members to pre-set the heating so the room is toasty in time for practice sessions.
A kitchenette situated at one end of the room completes the high spec interior. The inclusion of this allows members to make tea and chill celebratory bubbles for when they win their games!
