We are excited to introduce you to the QuadPod, the new range of garden rooms by Sanctum Garden Studios. A stylish new design, which looks much more expensive than its £8,995 starting price.
The Sanctum team, have cleverly taken features from their two existing ranges and combined them into the QuadPod. From the Hampton, they have taken the principle of standard sizes and layouts which offer quick installation and a great price point. While from the Contemporary Range, they have taken desirable finishes such as the cubed roofline and Cedar cladding.
Two styles, three sizes
The QuadPod is available in two styles, each model available in three standard sizes. With each design, you have the option to have the door positioned in the left-hand or right-hand wall.
The QuadPod Studio combines a single, outward opening glazed door on the side elevation (you choose which side wall) with a 2m x 2m picture window positioned to one side of the front elevation. This layout is perfect for many uses. The large window flooding the room with natural light and creating a great connection with the garden.
Meanwhile, the QuadPod Office has been designed to maximise desk and storage space. Again, a single, outward opening glazed door is positioned in one of the side walls. We are loving how this has been mixed with a 2m wide by 900mm high window, positioned at desk height on the front elevation. We particularly like that it includes an opening section, which can easily be pushed open for a little air as you work. The positioning of the window lends itself to have a desk fitted underneath (we hear that a fitted desk, will soon be offered as an optional extra).
Both the QuadPod Studio and QuadPod Office are available in three sizes:
- Micro 2.4m x 1.8m costing £8,995 inc VAT, delivery and installation
- Mini 2.4m x 2.4m costing £9,995 inc VAT, delivery and installation
- Maxi 3m x 2.4m costing £10,995 inc VAT, delivery and installation
The QuadPod can overcome access issues. If need be, the parts can be manoeuvred through your house. You would have to supply details of the path from the road to the plot when you order, and there is a £250 fee, but it is good to know its an option.
On top of the building price, you would need to factor in the cost of connecting the electrics to the mains supply, and the painting of the interior. Otherwise, everything else is included in the price.
The QuadPod sits on its own steel foundation system, and the building can be installed and ready to use within 2-days.
Contemporary Cedar and grey finishes
The exterior of the QuadPod mixes popular Cedar and grey finishes. Western Red Cedar cladding is fitted on the front wall and the door wall. This finish is combined with grey uPVC door and windows - a popular combination in contemporary garden room design.
The second side wall and rear wall are finished in a grey weatherboard, which is a durable, practical solution for the non-prominent walls. There is, if you prefer, the option to add Cedar cladding to the side wall, at an extra cost.
Make your mark inside
Inside, the QuadPod is finished in a matt board. This has narrow expansion gaps every meter or so. The board is left unfinished for you to paint out in your choice of colour. You could, however, leave the board as is, if you prefer.
The floor is finished with a light grey laminate flooring trimmed with white skirting boards.
Each of the QuadPod designs comes pre-wired electrically with the QuadPod Studio having four double sockets - one positioned in each corner of the building.
The QuadPod Office also has four double sockets, with two positioned on the front wall under the desk area and the other two in the corners of the rear wall.
All buildings are fitted with an energy-efficient LED strip light. As an optional extra, you can also add an exterior light.
The QuadPod is an exciting new range of garden rooms. We are particularly excited by the Micro option, as it means you can have a fully insulated garden room in the space that a basic garden shed might otherwise sit!
