Contemporary, highly insulated timber house extensions are ‘hot property’ at the moment. Not a day goes by when we are not emailed and asked to recommend companies who design and build them. One of the first names on the list we send is Bridge Garden Rooms.
Yorkshire based Bridge Garden Rooms design contemporary garden rooms of all types from small home offices through to large school classrooms. They are one of the few garden room companies who apply their design skills to create contemporary house extensions.
Bridge Garden Rooms construct their house extensions using structural insulated panels – SIP’s. These panels form the core of a multilayer build-up. One of the key benefits of a SIP’s extension is that the framework can be installed in a matter of hours. There is nothing more exciting than seeing your new room take shape so quickly.
As bespoke designers, the Bridge Garden Rooms team will work with you to create a design that will maximise the space you have available and to incorporate the design features you like. This stylish example of a Bridge Garden Rooms extension, for instance, incorporates a large expanse of bi-fold doors and a roof lantern.
You can have a lot of input into the material finishes used for your extension. You might like the idea of creating a sharp contrast between your house and new extension by cladding the exterior in a durable timber such as Western Red Cedar or Siberian Larch. Or you might choose to have the exterior rendered, as in this example.
Inside, the Bridge Garden Rooms team finish their rooms to a high standard with plastered and decorated walls and ceiling, combined with wooden floors. The electrical cabling is incorporated into the structure with flush fittings. Again, the Bridge team will work with you to create your ideal layout of sockets and lighting.
In many cases, a SIP’s house extension can be built under the Permitted Development rules, meaning you don’t need to make a full planning application. The Bridge team will discuss this with you when they conduct their survey. This coupled with on-site build times of a couple of weeks or so, means your new room could be built an ready to use in a matter of weeks from initial discussions.
