Executive Garden Rooms are bespoke design specialists, working closely with clients to design a room around it’s intended use. They recently worked with their client to create this 4m x 4m garden music room, which incorporates soundproofing features. This is not the first garden music room they have built; this previous build houses a grand piano!
The music room sits on a reinforced concrete base. The Executive Garden Rooms team install this, and factor it’s cost in, as part of their overall project. This is reassuring as some companies would ask you to engage another company to undertake the job before they arrive on site to install the building.
Executive Garden Rooms build their rooms using a traditional timber frame building system. High levels of insulation are fitted within the framework, in fact, Executive Garden Rooms offer one of the most highly insulated frameworks we have seen. As well as ensuring the room is thermally efficient, they have also taken care on this project to enhance its soundproof properties. Part of this soundproofing process involved adding resilient bars in the ceiling structure. These bars help reduce vibration and noise penetration. They also enhance the sound quality within the room.
When buying a garden music room, your designer will suggest minimising the amount of glazing that is used in the building. This is because glass leaks sound compared to solid walls. In this case, Executive Garden Rooms and their client decided to fit a desk height, three-pane casement window and a composite front door with a small glazed panel. This is a clever combination, letting natural light and ventilation into the room, yet minimising the amount of glass used.
The windows and front door are colour matched in Anthracite grey. This finish contrasts nicely with the paler grey Cedral weatherboarding, which has been used to clad the exterior of the room. Cedral is a cement based board with wood grain texture that comes pre-coloured. The cladding will maintain its colour in the long term without the need for ongoing maintenance.
Inside, like all Executive Garden Rooms projects, the music room has fully plastered and decorated walls. This finish combined with a wooden floor creates a modern, light room.
The electrical specification includes LED downlights recessed into the ceiling, power points dotted around the room and an electric panel heater. A smoke alarm and external security light have also been fitted. Cat6 data cabling was also incorporated to ensure the music room has a reliable high-speed internet connection. Executive Garden Rooms will connect the garden rooms electrics to the mains supply, as part of their overall project. Many other companies would ask you to engage a local electrician once they have left the site. In this case, the connection required 30 meters of armoured cabling.
