Construction of two new identical timber framed garden rooms at adjoining properties


Brief:

Construction of two new identical timber framed garden rooms at adjoining properties.

What we did:

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.
