Garden Room Case Study 5331

By Martin Baker

Read how we designed and built a spacious combination garden office for this St Albans client - with plenty of space for bikes and bi-fold doors.

The project - an Executive Combination Garden Office and Store in St Albans

After finding us online, this St Albans customer made the trip to our factory and showground in West Sussex, where they met with Keith Baker who was able to advise and talk them through the various options available.

Initial quotations were followed with a site survey by Martin Baker who then proceeded to finalise costings and plan drawings before getting underway with the project.

The work - designing a combination garden office that fits perfectly

This combination garden office measures an impressive 7.5m wide by 3.1m deep (5.1m +2.4m) and fits snugly across the width of the garden.The storage area is large enough to accommodate a number of bikes and garden equipment, and the main building houses home office appliances and furniture, as well as an array of gym equipment, storage units and gadgets.

The aluminium bi-folding doors (colour matched to the building's external painted cladding in Sadolin Superdec 'Signal Grey') were a big decision for this customer, but irrefutably, they have added to the sleekness of the building's appearance and offer fantastic integration with the garden area.

The building also features our EPDM Firestone rear roof and height package, MDF painted internals in 'Angora', timber laminated flooring in 'Florence', Medite Tricoya Extreme (MTX) cladding to the front of the building, security pack, our new v-groove hardwood door to storage section, and of course is fully lined, insulated and double glazed for year round use.

The result - "truly exceptional" service and garden office

The client was delighted with the finished result of this St Albans combination garden office:

"Prior to deciding what we wanted I scoured the market for ideas and took a trip to Bakers Timber Buildings Show Ground in Sussex. This was a most valuable visit as Keith Baker was ever so helpful and being able to see, touch and feel the buildings really helped me to make a successful choice.
Martin Baker then visited my property and took the time to run through all the options and details with my wife and I, thus leaving us with the confidence that Bakers Timber Buildings were the right choice.

I then considered whether it was worth doing the site clearance and electrical connections via a 3rd party but I am so pleased Bakers managed all aspects of the project because Kurt, Neal, Wayne and the Site Team were first class in terms of their professionalism on site, work ethic and customer care. Nothing was too much trouble and in fact when I asked for extras (even at the last minute) they were so accommodating.

In addition, the Site Installation team were fully backed up by a proactive office and so the regular progress emails from Beverly just reinforced my decision to use Bakers.

So in conclusion, please know that I don't usually write reviews and I also expect a very high standard of customer service from Company's I purchase from, and yet I felt compelled to put my positive experience with Bakers Timber Buildings in writing as it truly was exceptional".
