This garden room with a secret storage shed by Hargreaves Garden Spaces has been designed to fill the space at the end of the garden. It sits snuggly between three boundary fences.
When building a garden room, you need to leave some space alongside the boundary so that the installation team can install the wall panels and you can maintain the cladding. As we can see from these photos, Hargreaves Garden Spaces are able to keep this space to a minimum.
Typically 400 - 500mm of space is needed around the building, but the Hargreaves Garden Spaces team will confirm this during their site survey. The way they install their buildings means this space is not always required on all sides. In this case, the space was only required on the back elevation and one of the side elevations.
As these photos show, this system offers the opportunity to maximise the space available. A 4m x 3m garden room incorporating a storage area sits well within the three boundary fences.
Garden room with sloping cheek detail
This project is an example of the Hargreaves Garden Spaces Windsor range. We have featured other examples of this range, which you might like to explore:
A key feature of the Windsor range is its roof overhang with sloping cheek detail on the front elevation. This detailing frames the front of the building, offering a welcoming entrance.
A nice feature of this canopy detail is that you can have LED downlights fitted, which cast a curtain of light down the front of the building.
The canopy detail frames the entrance doors leading into the main room and the storage room. Aluminium, three-leaf bi-folding doors will fold to one side, stacking next to the sloping cheek. When open, the bi-folds offer a lovely connection between the indoor and outdoor spaces.
Look closely, and you can just see a secret door within the Cedar cladding that leads into the storage shed. The Hargreaves Garden Spaces team have carefully matched the cladding used on the door with that used on the surrounding wall, making the door hard to see.
Two rooms, two interior finish specifications
Hargreaves Garden Spaces have finished the two rooms with different interior specifications. The main room has a high-spec plastered and decorated finish and laminate flooring.
The storage area is lined with OSB, a practical and durable finish for such areas. The owners plan to add shelves in the storage room, and the OSB will be a good basis for them.
A mix of Western Red Cedar and British Cedar cladding
The exterior of this garden room has been clad in Cedar - both Western Red Cedar and British Cedar. The front elevation has been clad in the Western Red, which has a rich reddish brown colour. The other elevations have been finished in the British Cedar, which has a honey colouring and a more prominent grain pattern.
Both Western Red Cedar and British Cedar are highly durable exterior cladding options. British Cedar is the cheaper of the two, so it can be a good choice when you want to maximise your budget, particularly on hidden elevations.
Price included the final electrical hook-up
Hargreaves Garden Spaces handled the whole project for their clients, from installing the ground screw foundations right through to connecting the garden room electrics to the house. Not all garden room companies include this final connection in the price they quote, leaving you to organise it with another company, so it's nice to see that Hargreaves Garden Spaces handle everything.
