Construction of two new identical timber framed garden rooms at adjoining properties
Construction of two new identical timber framed garden rooms at adjoining properties.
The Construction Co designed and constructed two timber framed gardens rooms at a pair of adjoining 1840s built cottages. We had been asked by our client to design a new garden room to be installed at the rear of these properties with the works phased and completed during a changeover in tenancy agreements. We asked Canham Consulting to design a suitable raft foundation and timber frame structure for the project that would need to adhere to building regulations. The Construction Co installed a full height window and set of folding PVCu doors to allow light and access to garden/patio. New Torched-on felt warm flat roof setup was installed and needed to finish beneath the existing first-floor window at the rear. The existing ground floor kitchen window was taken out and the wall beneath removed to allow access to the neighbouring kitchen. This required a new kitchen to be installed to a layout that worked alongside the new passageway. A karndean floor was installed in the kitchen and garden room and allowed a seamless flow to the rooms.
