Find out how we designed and built this stylish poolside combination room with changing and store room for the perfect garden entertainment project.
The client approached us fairly late into their swimming pool and garden entertainment area project. By the time we were involved, the concrete base was already in place with an electrical feed. The base was 5370mm wide x 3000mm deep, and as all our buildings are made to order we were able to manufacture the building to these exact measurements giving a tidy and considered look.
The building needed to cater for a number of uses - a main room for entertaining all year round so they could enjoy the area whatever the weather, a changing room and a storage section for all the cleaning equipment and chemicals.
The client already had a good vision of how they wanted it to look, and liked the idea of saloon doors on a traditional swing hinge for the changing room. This was to be integrated in to the main room, and bi-folding doors were a must.
The external colour was very important as we needed to tie in the greys and browns of the decking and patio. To make sure they chose the perfect colour, we sent sample boards for them to live with for a few days, and the final decision of Ral 7006 (Beige Grey) works perfectly.
The building has the vertical v-groove "Medite Tricoya Extreme (MTX)" external cladding to all four walls for a perfect and contemporary finish, and as it was more than 2m away from the boundary we slightly increased the height of the room to 2.7m at the high point. We fitted our "Aquastep" wet room flooring in "Beachhouse Oak" so the client didn't need to worry about wet feet affecting it. This works perfectly with the internal MDF which is also V-groove finished with acrylic eggshell in Timeless.
We also installed a completed electrics package that we connected into the system already running for the pool, so the customers have full control of all the lights from the house, along with timers to show this stunning area at night.
The client was very happy with the result:
"We couldn't be more pleased with our combination Pool Room and Store with changing room. The quality is superb, the customer service exceptional, and the building is first class. Would recommend Bakers every step of the way, they advise well, source and create any features required and deliver on time! Our building went up in less than a week with so little fuss - a pleasure to deal with".
