Garden rooms make great places for all members of the family to escape to and entertain friends. Cre8a Pods designed and built an L-shaped room for a family that wanted to create an entertainment pod. They designed a large room sitting on a footprint of 8 meters by 6 meters. The space has been divided to create a large main room and a secret storage area for garden furniture etc. The storage room is accessed via double doors, allowing for easy access into the room.
An unlevel site
The proposed site for the building was very uneven, luckily Cre8a Pods choice of foundation system can easily overcome an uneven site. They use ground screws which can be positioned to create a level basis for the floor framework. A large deck has been created around the garden room, which not only creates another entertainment area, it also has levelled out that area of the garden.
Cre8a Pods offer a wide range of low maintenance cladding finishes for the exterior of the building. In this case, a Marshland Oak finish was chosen. The Cre8a team used this same cladding material as an infill for the doors leading into the storage room. This is a clever way of helping the storage room discreetly blend in.
Inside, the large open plan room has a light and airy feel. Two sets of sliding doors have been mixed with a large floor to ceiling window, and a run of rectangular opening windows to create a bright room. The internal finishes also help bounce the light around. Cre8a Pods use a product called Clicwall which is an interlocking panel system. In this case, a white finish has been used.
The room is fully wired electrically. As well as the normal light and power points, a Bluetooth surround sound speak system was incorporated. This connects to the TV and phones to play music etc.
This large project took four weeks to complete.
Cre8a Pod’s client had these comments about his new room:
“I chose an “L” shaped Cre8a pod to suit my garden. It looks great and has created a fantastic space for the TV, bar, pool table and sitting area. Great addition to the house and friends love it! Excellent quality and first class workmanship. When we have rain and hail we don’t hear it! The thick insulated walls keep it cool in the summer as well as warm in the winter. Nobody wants to sit or relax in the house now, it is a great outdoor living space”
