- Completed:February 2016
Our client for this project was looking for way to bring the home and garden together but didn't want a traditional conservatory. A garden room was design to encapsulate the best of indoor/outdoor living whilst increasing value to the home and adding extra living space!
In preparation for construction, we removed the water butt and began leveling the entire area which would become the garden room and adjoining patio. Once the turf was removed and the area levelled, we began digging and filling the footings and establishing the drainage channels. Fairly quickly into the build we were ready for the foundations to be poured making way for us to build up to the damp proof course.
The external walls were constructed in a beautiful stone which matched the main property, internal blocks were laid before the scaffolding arrived for the upper levels of the garden room. Roofing was installed and sectionals cut to allow for the incredible pyramid rooflight. A lantern-style pyramid skylight was chosen to create an architectural feature of an otherwise flat roof and to allow for abundant natural light to flood the garden room.
Playing into the concept of drawing light into the space, french doors were placed in the short wall and floor to ceiling windows extended across the front - looking out on to the garden. These were finished in a sage green matching the main house and really pulling the garden room together as part of the home.
The garden room was finished to a high level internally with pull electrics extended through and a soft mid grey wall colour complimented with a light slate effect floor to replicate the feel of the patio - a good trick to make the space feel bigger.
A stunning indian sandstone was laid in a parallel course to create a large space, perfect for al fresco dining and entertaining. We also created steps down on to the garden for ease of access and to connect each of the spaces.
This gorgeous stone garden room in Tredington was an absolute please to build and created an amazing entertaining space with incredible views, the landscaping drew each element together.
