Garden Room Case Study 4224

Customer Comment:
"Bakers made my dream come true!
I had an idea in my mind for a number of years for a garden building, a redundancy payment, Martin, Keith and their expert team made it come true. They interpreted my ideas offering knowledgeable advice and suggestions, bearing in mind the site of the building and came up with a design for a 20 X 10 foot bespoke garden room, complete with shingle roof which I am absolutely delighted with. The dedicated and friendly team of lads and electrician worked in some exceptionally bad weather conditions to complete the construction on schedule, for which I thank them so much. Bakers were able to offer the whole package, which was extremely important for me, including drawing up of plans, submission to the Council and complete project management, taking the stress out of things. In addition their after care service is exceptional, nothing is too much trouble and therefore I have no hesitation in recommending them."

Cedar shingle garden room in Kingston upon Thames, Surrey

Mrs Harrison, already had a good idea of what she was looking for when we met at the Hampton Court Flower Show.

After the show we arranged a site visit where we discussed all the requirements. She really wanted to make a feature of the roof and love the idea of cedar shingles, because of the height of this and the proximity to the boundary we needed to apply for planning. We had the drawings agreed by the customer then applied on her behalf, and had the plans approved.

We then set to work on the timber frame base that was partly supported by the existing foundations and partly supported by the steels we in-set in the ground.

We refer to this design as a reversed Merlin, and the doors and windows are in the side elevation thus making the cedar shingle roof a feature. The building was supplied MDF lined, insulated and double glazed.

Mrs Harrision decided to finish the inside and outside of the building personally, to keep the cost down and also to feel part of the project. We installed electrics and finished out front of the building.
