Garden Studios Technical Specification

Garden Studios Technical Specification


Our Garden Studios are made to order, handcrafted by skilled craftsmen in our factory in Worcestershire, using traditional carpentry techniques and the finest quality materials. They are then delivered and installed by a team of experienced and skilled fitters.


We offer a wide selection of sizes and optional extras, enabling you to create your ideal garden room, which not only meets your practical needs but your own personal taste.

We use only the highest quality materials from sustainable sources. Our deal buildings are constructed using kiln dried slow grown pine from Sweden’s Northern sawmills, and our cedar buildings are constructed using Canadian Western Red kiln dried cedar.

Garden Studios technical specification


Construction

All deal and cedar buildings have deal roofs and floors.

Cedar buildings have cedar windows, doors and external cladding only, i.e. they have deal framing, floors, roofs and verandahs.

Standard floor thickness is 13mm; heavy duty floor upgrade is 19mm.

Ironmongery is chrome as standard unless otherwise stated.

Roof options

Buildings come with heavy duty mineral felt as standard, with the following upgrades available:

Bitumen felt tiles
Roof is covered with tile-effect heavy duty felt tiles

Slatted roof
An aesthetic roof made with feather-edged pressure treated deal or Western Red cedar boards, to enhance the appearance of your building and provide added protection to the roofing felt beneath.

Shingle roof
Western Red cedar shingles fixed to pressure treated joists, to enhance the appearance of your building and provide added protection to the roofing felt beneath.

EPDM rubber roof
A maintenance free synthetic rubber membrane covering the roof as an alternative to roofing felt.

External finish

All of our non-painted deal and cedar buildings are treated with a good quality preservative on the inside, as well as the outside, prior to leaving the factory. We recommend that your preserve your building on an annual basis to maintain the appearance and lifespan of your building.

Integral open sided area

Please note, when working out the price for this option, use the overall building size including the open area.

However, where an open sided upgrade is applied, the heavy duty floor cost must be included to the internal area as well – as the decking in the open sided area is heavy duty, the other sections of the building need to match the thickness.

Our 10 year guarantee

All of our Garden Rooms come with a guarantee against rot and decay:

  • Ten years for cedar
  • Three years for pressure treated deal
  • Two years from deal.

All other workmanship and materials are guaranteed to be free from defects and faulty installation for a twelve month period from date of installation. All of our guarantees are subject to the buildings being maintained in line with our recommendations. This guarantee does not affect your statutory rights.

We would like to remind customers that timber is an organic product, subject to naturally occurring changes that may result from different environmental conditions i.e. changes in colour, surface splits and shrinkage. We cannot accept responsibility for these natural changes.
