Location: Rusper, East Sussex

Design brief:

Our clients required a new Oak framed Garden Room linked to their new terrace and hot-tub area create a den for the children, and i guess the parents when the children are out. The building was designed within permitted development heights and regulations, only with space being slightly limited we wanted to locate the building near their boundary line, therefore building design plans and a planning application was submitted, which was granted within 9 weeks.

Project Notes:

The entire project duration ran for 3 months, during which time we cleared the space, installed the foundations, brick upstand &oversiteeek, then the frame and building was constructed.

Soon the building frame was erected by our carpenters whilst the hard-landscape team installed the boundary walling, piers, balmouth and driveway base layers.
