Mr & Mrs S approached Garden Retreat requiring two buildings, a garden studio and a larger garage to the one they already had. We were delighted to win the project and in addition to the two buildings we were also given the opportunity to organise and mange the ground works, drainage and clearance.
The Studio Garden Building is constructed using an external 16mm tanalised cladding and bitumen paper to ensure any damp is kept out of the building. The walls are constructed using a 75mm x 38mm timber frame, 50mm Celotex and a 12mm inner lining grooved ply to finish the walls. The total thickness of the walls is 100mm which lends itself to all year round use. The floor is manufactured using heavy duty bearers, 75mm Celotex and a 15mm ply floor which comes with a laminated floor as standard and there are 4 options to choose from, alternatively you can fit your own vinyl or carpet.
The roof is pitched (standard 2.5m to ridge) insulated and comes with an ply ceiling, felt tile roof, underfelt and internal spot lights or light panels. Within the electrics pack there is consumer unit, 3 brushed stainless steel double sockets and a switch. We also install sockets with built in USB charging points which is very useful and this building also has external spots (not standard on the studio model) to light up the porch area.
This particular model is supplied with one set of 1200mm wide anthracite grey uPVC French doors and three 600mm side lights and a 600mm x 900mm uPVC casement window. The height of this particular buildings has been increased by 300mm to increase headroom and has two internal rooms for storage. The building is designed to be modular so during the ordering process you have the opportunity to choose where you want the windows and doors to be.

“Great job from start to finish. Very pleased with our garden room and garage installations. Very well managed throughout, with good quality control, checking of our bespoke arrangements, and onsite visits. Garden Retreat also helped with arranging a base contractor, and liaised and visited to check measurements were correct for the main builds.” Verified Review By Houzz
