Garden Room Case Study 5316

Read how we helped a Kent couple to create the perfect home office and recreation space by designing and building a garden room that complemented their modern home.

The project - a contemporary Garden Room in Whitstable, Kent

The clients asked us to design and build a garden building that could also be used as a home office from which to run their business -  freeing up the kitchen which had been used until that point.

The meant that the garden room needed to be large enough for work training, with additional room available for their hobbies. So we agreed on a 5m x 4m structure.

The work - building the garden room home office

The main house is a modern property, and it was important that the new home office complimented it's appearance. This was particularly important  bearing in mind their close proximity to one another.

After several discussions and a site survey by Martin Baker, plan drawings were created and approved by the customer.

We installed our steel and timber framed base in readiness for the building and then removed a side fence panel so as to allow the building to fit precisely.

The building comes with an array of impressive features such as our EPDM Firestone rear roof and height package, MDF internal panels painted in 'Angora', timber laminated flooring in 'Silver Oak', security pack, full electrics and communications package (including our new HDMI sockets), climate control unit, timber decking laid to the front of the building, and because the home office is visible on 3 sides, we used our Medite Tricoya Extreme (MTX) cladding on these sides which we then painted in Sadolin Superdec's 'Chalky Blue'.

The result - an "excellent' home office

The end result is a stunning garden office design that fits perfectly within its environment. And the client was extremely pleased:

"We are delighted with our new garden room which doubles up as an office and Textiles work space. Martin and his team are extremely professional and offered lots of valuable advice from start to finish in order to get the right building for our particular needs. The build quality and finish is excellent. We have no hesitation in highly recommending Martin and his team at Bakers Timber Buildings".
