Sanctum Garden Studios have added a new door style to their range of options: slide and swing doors. They are a cross between sliding doors and bi-fold doors, and are a great alternative, particularly on small garden studios.
Slide and swing doors have been fitted on this 3m x 2.4m contemporary style garden studio. As we can see from these photos when open they create a great connection between the room and the garden.
In this case, the slide and swing doors are made up of three sections. The main entrance door being on the left-hand side. This can be opened and used without having to open the other sections. But, when you want to open up the whole wall, you just flick the locks and slide the doors along the frame. They then neatly fold back against the main door at one end.
The compact garden studio is clad externally with Western Red Cedar. The reddish-brown colour of the Cedar looks sharp with the dark grey finish of the uPVC doors and window. The roof is covered with an EPDM membrane.
The combination of the Cedar, uPVC and EPDM create a durable exterior which will need little ongoing maintenance.
While Sanctum Garden Studios offer the option of a plastered and decorated interior. This requires the installation team to be on site for an extra day or so. For this reason, they suggest to clients who want this finish to ask a local plasterer to quote to skim the interior. It often works out cheaper to use a local plasterer than for the Sanctum team to stay on-site for an extra day. This was the case with this project, the Sanctum team prepared the walls and ceiling for a local plasterer to skim once they left the
It was a smooth build process, as the client explains:
“The Sanctum Studios team delivered and erected our studio without any of the last minute problems that I had anticipated. They worked quickly and efficiently to get our studio installed and the finished job looks great. Thank you so much.”
