Garden rooms across the country have come into their own during the lockdown period, as their owners make full use of these versatile buildings.
Crusoe Garden Rooms have shared with us some of the feedback they have received recently on past projects. The comments are in line with others we have heard - that a garden room has been a valuable, multipurpose space for all the family during the lockdown period.
We are still enjoying our wonderful summerhouse six years on!
While the owners of this 5m x 3m Crusoe Garden Room, may call it a summerhouse, it was actually designed for comfortable year-round use. The handcrafted building was designed to maximise natural light in the room. This was achieved by mixing a four-pane set of sliding doors with a panoramic window on the rear wall and a picture window on the side wall.
Bespoke detailing either side of the sliding doors frames the customer's precious Japanese glass panels, which are illuminated with uplighters - a nice personal touch, which the Crusoe team were happy to incorporate.
The garden room is being used as a home office, meeting space, pilates and yoga studio and a live broadcast studio - its a multitasking garden room!
This 6m x 4.5m garden room is from the Crusoe Classic range. Alongside the main room, a secret storage room was created which the owner reports has been a fantastic addition to the standard specification.
Three family members have been working in the garden room during the lockdown period. So, at various times it has acted as a home office to take part in virtual meetings, a live broadcast studio, and a yoga and pilates studio. Prior to lockdown, it was used for in-person meetings with room for 15 attendees.
An absolute lifesaver under the current circumstances, doubling up as an art studio and home gym.
This lovely building nestling into its New Forest surroundings is another example of a Crusoe Classic. This example is 6 meters wide by 3.5 meters deep. We like the addition of long windows on either side of the wide sliding doors, offset with blocks of Cedar cladding.
