A garden room can transform a garden and extend its usability for all the family. This Executive Garden Rooms project is a fine example of this transformation. Executive's clients had the vision to replace an old garage and log store with a highly insulated garden room that all the family could use.
Once the garage was dismantled and the ground cleared, it revealed space for a 7.4m x 4.2m garden room. The footprint was divided to create one large room that all the family could enjoy, plus a shower room and an airing cupboard.
Natural light bounces around the main room, thanks to a large expanse of glazing on the front elevation and the large electronic Velux roof window. Adding top light with a roof window adds another dimension to a garden room and is really worth considering for your own project.
The roof window is operated by remote control and is fitted with rain sensors, so it will close itself if it starts raining.
The shower room required extensive groundworks
Adding the shower room extends the usability of the building now and in the future. In this case, extensive groundworks were required to connect the facilities to the mains supplies. Executive Garden Rooms handle these groundworks as part of their overall service, unlike many other garden room companies, leaving you with a shower room that is ready to use as they leave the site.
The groundworks for this project included a pumping station to take the foul to the mains and a lengthy trench that contained the water supply, foul pipes, armoured electric cable and cat6 data cable.
A pressurised water system
Users of the shower room are in for a great shower, with no loss of pressure should someone turn on a tap in the main house. This is because the garden room was fitted with its own 125 litre pressurised cylinder.
The cylinder has been installed in a cupboard alongside the shower room. This room also offers handy storage for the family.
Cedral & render exterior
Externally, two low maintenance finishes have been chosen. The rear and side elevations have been clad in white Cedral boards, as have the soffit and fascia of the front elevation. In contrast, the front wall has been finished with a crisp white render to tie in with the main house.
Render is growing in popularity in garden room design as it offers a stylish, low maintenance finish. As we can see, the white render looks sharp butting into the anthracite grey doors and windows.
Rendered finishes take skill to get right, so not many garden room companies offer it as a finish, like Executive Garden Rooms.
