Garden Room Case Study 4935

Customer Comment:
"We love love love our Bakers timber building!! It adds an all year round peaceful & cosy extra room - with a lovely open view of our garden! A lovely sanctuary".

Contemporary Garden Room in Croydon, Surrey

After finding us on the Internet and happy with what they saw on our website, Ian and Denise decided they would like a quotation. They were looking for their old defunct summerhouse (with asbestos roof) to be removed and a new all year-round garden room to be installed in its place. Alongside this was landscaping work that was required.

After an initial quotation, site survey by one of the directors, and then a visit to our show centre, a principal order was placed with an agreed start date.
We set to work on dismantling and removing the old building, the asbestos was double wrapped and had a certified disposal. The old unlevel screed was removed from site and it was decided that the best plan of action was to install a timber frame to create a level base set onto the concrete. The existing Yorkshire stone steps were carefully lifted so they could be reused as a patio;- this was a nice element to keep some of the original features. A new set of steps was cast in concrete, and the original stone was relayed on a new sub base with matching new stones on the steps. Along with this a timber retaining wall was installed.

Due to a number of factors there were some changes made to the building throughout production stage, and we accommodated these prior to delivery. The 12 x 11ft (3650x3350mm) Merlin in jungle green was then installed. Internally it has our MDF upgrade with the Richmond beading, and a section of this was partitioned off for storage that is accessed from the outside. Our beautiful 'Western Oak' floor was laid and worked perfectly with the "Snow tracks" acrylic eggshell wall colour and "brilliant white" ceiling. This building also features a bar that we built and installed with matching panelling, shelves to hold bottles and glasses on the inside, with the bar top in jungle green to match the outside of the building.

We then installed a full electrics package along with convector heater, sockets and internal LED dimmable lights, with external LED lights on dusk sensor so they automatically light up every evening.
All the final trimming painting and finishing was completed and the keys were handed over to the customer.
