  • See your potential garden room in 3D
    aided design drawings for potential customers mainly in order to apply for planning permission for their garden room when required Although a 2D drawing gives a technically accurate representation of a building it can still be hard to visualise the final aesthetic and appearance of a building in only 2 dimensional line drawings That is the predominant reason why 3D drawings have become so popular within the building industry at large Whenever large scale developments or smaller sized ventures for that matter wish to give an early appreciation of the works to potential clients users investors or planning authorities the ability to be able depict the final result without a leap of imagination on the viewer s part is invaluable The technology to put three dimensional line drawings together has been around since the late 1980 s The principle of this original technology is that 2D drawings are converted to 3D by adding an additional z axis to the x and y of the flat image Modern 3D CAD programmes are much more user friendly and less labourious and include rendering technology This means that photos and images of real life materials and landscapes can be uploaded into the drawing

  • Sedum roofs for garden rooms
    Sedum has a number of advantages over traditional less ecologically minded roof finishes when it comes to performance and application It comprises hardy perennial plants and grasses mostly originating from the harsher corners of the British Isles which are woven into matting and planted into a growing media This media sits on top of a well draining fabric drainage system All of the Sedum and its associated paraphernalia sit within some sort of waterproofed roofing system commonly EPDM or GRP The first advantage of Sedum over other roofing options is appearance When used on garden rooms a sedum roof can bring the one thing that a large proportion of our customers feel is vital to their design criteria harmony By far and away the most common colour chosen by our customers when opting for an opaque building which is the vast majority is some shade of green When examining our back catalogue of garden rooms we have manufactured and installed you will see it tends to be due to a desire to blend the garden room in with their beloved garden as best as possible and as the most common colour within the garden is green except for perhaps in some Urban gardens this is the colour opted for Well as far camouflaging a room within in a garden is concerned covering the roof with grass is as good a start as any Most in the UK are aware of the problem of man made climate change so being able to suck up a bit more carbon dioxide technically known as carbon sequestration through what would otherwise be lost groundcover if a non living roof was used can only help with the problem of too much atmospheric carbon dioxide Another advantage of sedum roofs when used on garden rooms is

  • Not all 2.5m garden rooms need to be flat!
    boundary This ruling has lead to a massive amount of flat roofed building on the market in order to fit within this parameter Yet not everyone likes the sometimes contemporary utilitarian appearance of mono pitched garden rooms We are often asked Can t you do an apex garden room less than 2 5m and the reply has always been We can but you d bang your head on the door on your way in The problem is two fold Firstly as you ve probably worked out from the previous paragraph doors need to be able to function for their primary purpose which is to allow a user access in and out of a room You might think we could just trim a bit of size off the doors to fit in everyone except the Harlem Globetrotters However doors come in standard sizes and if we trim too much off the door it is liable to warp the joints to fail and for it to fall apart in the long term The second problem is with the roof covering All roofing materials designed for pitched roofs have a minimum pitch at which they will operate correctly If the pitch is too

  • Unveiling the Betterbase
    garden rooms the Betterbase in conjunction with our sister company Homespace Construction This means that Wentworth Garden Rooms can guarantee that the construction will comply with their 5 and 10 year guarantees By utilising reinforced concrete lintels the timber can be kept off the ground and contact kept to a minimum reducing the potential for rotting The integral ventilation in the design also reduces the possibility of damp entering the garden room a constant problem with concrete slabs Having the durability and stability of a concrete slab the traditional choice of garden building base but without the tonnes of poured concrete and the associated massive carbon emissions it also has the advantage of being much more environmentally friendly as well as being better performing for its intended purpose The Betterbase is constructed in the following way 1 We bore 8 inch holes into the ground depth dependent on soil conditions and filling these with concrete This means that the building is resting on solid deeper ground rather than topsoil thus mitigating subsidence 2 A trench is then dug around the perimeter and filled with concrete Although not load bearing this trench prevents the ingress of small animals and debris into

  • Shedding light on flat roofed garden rooms
    within construction as a whole as well as in the garden rooms sector You may already be familiar with the now traditional Velux rooflights in pitched roofs which we intend to cover in another article which we have installed on many of our garden rooms however you may not have come across their shallow pitched counterparts Flat or mono pitched buildings are an ever growing market within the garden buildings market as a whole due in most part to the 2 5m planning height rule 2 5m planning height rule Unlike one of our Prestige range buildings with their vaulted ceilings 2 5m high building is likely to have a 2 3m interior ceiling height Although not feeling oppressive it would be untrue to say that any building of this nature would have a feeling of vertical space However installing a Velux dome light pictured can help to give a feeling of limitless headroom The building shown above is one of Chiswick buildings from the studio range and as you can see it has a domed rooflight installed This style of rooflight is a relatively low cost way of adding light and a feeling of space into garden rooms A

  • Insulation for garden rooms
    our buildings is below left Solid foam insulation comes in five varieties although extruded polyethylene XPE is rarely used in garden rooms except perhaps underneath timber flooring to prevent noise The four other types are expanded polystyrene EPS extruded polystyrene XPS phenolic foam and polyurethane polyisocyanurate PUR PIR EPS is the least thermally insulating of these foams and is the stuff that polystyrene coffee cups are made from It is relatively low cost and is often used in flooring applications in garden rooms and other types of construction XPS is the next best foam for its thermal properties and it is very rigid so mainly gets used where compressive strength is required flooring applications in particular Phenolic foam is also used for similar purposes but has lower levels of thermal conductivity i e better insulating PUR and PIR are one of the most widely used insulation in construction today as they are per inch of thickness the best thermal insulator of the five types of solid foam It tends to have foil facing to both sides in order to reflect heat and to prevent the breakdown of the foam which reduces thermal performance of the insulation over the long term This foam is used in many applications in garden rooms such as cavity wall insulation and pitched roofs The common brand names are Celotex Xtratherm and Kingspan however manufacturers do make more than one type of solid foam board We use a lot of PUR and PIR in our buildings one picture of which is below middle The final type of insulation being covered is foil insulation There are two broad types of foil insulation available multi foils and foil faced bubble wrap Foil faced bubble wrap is exactly what it sounds like and is most commonly used for applications
