A quality garden office building will last for many decades, so it makes sense to choose a specification that will allow the building to evolve as your needs change or when you sell your house and a new owner takes on the space.
This project by Executive Garden Rooms is an excellent example of a future-proofed garden office.
All Executive Garden Rooms are designed as permanent structures and comply with Schedule 2 of the Building Regulations 2010. Sitting on a footprint of 6m x 4m, this building features a spacious shower room powered by a 125 litre pressurised water system. This opens up the possibility of the building being used for something else in the future, even a garden bedroom.
Building a garden office to Building Regulation standards and adding a shower room does add to the upfront project cost but will pay for itself in the long run, in how it extends the useability of the room.
Executive Garden Rooms offer a turnkey service, handling the whole project from design right through to the final decoration. This service includes undertaking the groundworks for the foundations and the shower room.
The groundworks on this project were extensive and included installing a pumping station to push the foul waste to the mains. Lengthy trenching was dug between the office and house, accommodating the foul and clean water pipes, an armoured cable for the electricity supply and CAT6 data cabling for a reliable internet connection.
Pressurised cylinder means no water drop out
Users of the shower room will be in for a good shower thanks to the inclusion of the pressurised water system. Having its own pressurised system means that the water in the office will not drop out when someone in the main house turns on a tap.
We feature a lot of garden room projects that incorporate a shower room, but not many of the companies have gone to the lengths of installing a pressurised water system, as Executive Garden Rooms do.
The shower room and airing cupboard have been positioned at the rear of the building. As we can see from the photos, the main office space is a light, modern room. Executive Garden Rooms offer a high-spec plastered and decorated interior, as standard.
Georgian style French doors
Externally, the garden office has been finished in a green/grey Cedral cladding board. This has been mixed with off white French doors, which feature Georgian style glazing bars to replicate the glazing on the main house.
The combination of the muted green cladding and the Georgian style glazing gives the building a softer, more traditional look, which is lovely.
Executive Garden Rooms are based in Dorset and focus their work in the South Of England.
