Sanctum Garden Studios build modern, contemporary studios which would be a fine feature in any garden.
Sanctum Garden Studios have designed their buildings to be maintenance free, this is achieved by choosing high performance materials such as western red cedar for the external cladding, EPDM rubber membrane for the roof and vinyl wrapped UPVC doors and windows.
The garden studios have their own foundation system of mini piles and pre formed ground beams, so other than removing vegetation from the site, no groundwork’s are required before construction starts.
Sanctum Garden Studios use a traditional timber frame system, creating a sandwich of timber, insulation and protective membranes – the wall panels are typically 175mm thick. The framework is highly insulated, between the studwork mineral wool batts are fixed, this type of insulation protects the building from heat loss by convection, over the mineral wool a combined vapour barrier and multi layer reflective foil is fixed, this prevents heat loss by radiation, and it also prevents the garden studio becoming too hot in the summer months.
The garden studios are clad in western red cedar which is one of the best thermally performing timbers available; it also has a natural resistance to moisture and fungal and insect attack. Western red cedar starts out a reddish brown colour but will weather to a silver grey with time.
The garden studios have a modern white interior and commercial grade laminate flooring. The garden studios are pre wired electrically and come with a consumer unit and brushed steel sockets, switches and spotlights.
The flat roof is covered in EPDM rubber membrane; this is a high performance roof covering with a life expectancy in excess of 50 years.
The French doors and windows are black foil wrapped UPVC so no painting is ever needed! The doors and windows have insurance approved multi point locks with chrome fittings as standard, and are glazed with Low E glazed units which are toughened for safety.
Sanctum Garden Studios offer a range of optional extras including double glazed units with built in blinds, folding sliding doors, additional windows, external lighting, air conditioning and under floor hearting.
On site time is as little as a day for small studios, whilst larger garden studios can be completed in four days. Sanctum Garden Studios use their own construction team rather than sub contractors, and all the customer needs to do is instruct an electrician to connect the garden studio to the mains electricity supply.
Prices range from £6,550 for a 1.8m x 2.4m garden studio to £16,850 for a 3.6m x 6m garden studio – these prices are fully inclusive, the only extra is the connection of the electricity to the mains.
