This is an interesting project by Annexe Spaces the sister brand of Garden Spaces. Annexes Spaces customer wanted to extend their property and made a planning application to extend the house itself. Unfortunately, this application was turned down. The customer reevaluated their options looking to their garden as a way to create their extra room, and the Annexe Spaces design for a compact en-suite garden bedroom was duly approved.
We love the simplicity of the design and palette of materials that have been used on this project. Annexe Spaces / Garden Spaces are one of the few companies that offer a rendered finish on their buildings. They use a Silicon K-Render, this is a specialist cement based system that has silicon in mixed in, which helps to repel water and keeps the render looking new. The render is breathable and pre-coloured so doesn’t require painting. In this case, the customer chose a crisp brilliant white finish which combined with the dark grey composite deck step which matches the doors & windows, a striking look has been created.
Only the three visible sides of the annexe have been finished in the render. The rear elevation has been finished in a durable particle board which has been painted with Weathershield paint in a dark grey colour to match the doors and windows.
As en-suite garden annexes go, this is a compact design and yet as you can see from the photos the room has a spacious feel with room for a bed, storage and seating areas. The building itself sits on a footprint of 6.4 meters by 3.4 meters which has created a main room 4.78 meters by 3.08 meters and a shower room 1.2 meters by 3.4 meters.
The shower room is well equipped with a spacious 1200mm x 900mm shower tray with a curtain. The room has an extractor fan fitted which is a requirement of Building Regulations in shower rooms like this. The room has been tiled, an easy to maintain flooring fitted and a modern towel rail installed.
The interior of the bedroom has the feel of a room in a new house. A durable oak effect laminate floor has been fitted, and the walls and ceiling have been fully plastered and decorated. The annexe is fully wired to Part P regulations. The electrical package includes 8 LED downlights in the ceiling and 6 double power sockets; all finished with brushed steel fittings. Externally three LED downlights have been fitted in the roof overhang that runs along the front of the building.
