Executive Garden Rooms have recently completed a large garden office in London. This large garden office is 32 square meters in size and contains a contemporary cloakroom.
This project was in the garden of a flat in central London, the only access to the garden was through the flat which meant a hand dig, 17 tonnes of soil were transferred through the flat to the skips in buckets, 6 tonnes of aggregate were transferred through the flat to the garden in buckets all done manually, 7 cubic meters of concrete were pumped into the foundation via a line pump from the road side. A 60 ft eucalyptus tree was cut down and also removed through the flat, no mean feat!
The garden building is within a meter from the boundary, therefore it went through building control sign off. As the property was located in a built up area in London the building inspector requested using a cladding product that had class O fire performance, after considering different options we used Cedral Weatherboard which looks great and comes in many different colours.
This cladding is much heavier than Cedar thus requires a deeper footing around the perimeter of the building to take the weight, this is easy for us to incorporate into our build process as we build on concrete foundations which is very popular in London because it avoids foxes and rodents nesting underneath.
Remember that with sign off from building control, the garden room can be included in the valuation of your property therefore makes it a great investment, especially relevant for the larger garden room builds.
The whole project took five weeks.
Another successful build by Executive Garden Rooms! To talk through your garden room requirements call them on 01258 470135 or visit their website www.executivegardenrooms.co.uk
