Continuing our look at garden rooms with storage rooms, Contemporary Garden Rooms offer some tips on buying such a building. The tile of this building is a Garden Room with Secret Shed, and secret it sure is, we had to look closely to see the door to the storage room as Contemporary Garden Rooms have matched the cladding so well.
What are the benefits of buying a garden room with integral store?
Keeping the lines of the Garden Room intact and retaining some symmetry within the garden environment.
Will the finished building look like a shed or will it be built to the same specification as a standalone garden rooms?
We have actually built the example above as a truly integrated solution; if you hadn’t noticed the key in the lock or the drip strip you wouldn’t know it was there!
Can customers have all the design features available in standalone garden rooms in this type of building?
Customers can specify a similar finish to the Garden Room space or request a more robust internal finish such as High Density Boarding or even T&G Cladding.
What sort of price are customers looking at for a multifunction building? What size building would this produce?
We can produce any size the client wishes; it’s always easier to assess the customers’ requirements when conducting a Site Visit as you can then have a look at an existing storage structure or items that require the extra storage space.
What other things should buyers think about when buying a garden room with integral store?
Getting their items in and out of the allotted space, this might require a slightly larger than standard door size for example. Security and safety of the storage area such as having no glazing to prevent temptation from prying eyes; a good British Standard Mortice Deadlock and possibly even a PIR security light as a first line of defence. If there are items of high value being stored inside the “shed” we would even install an Alarm with an internal PIR sensor to pickup any movement.
