Garden Room - The Elegance

Tell me more about the Elegance Garden Room

The Elegance garden room, is designed to be a symmetrical building with the doors and screens in centre of the front elevation. Protected by the 500mm deep veranda, the recess really enhances the design, giving it a modern look to our range of garden office pods, and the inclusive lights in the overhang makes the Elegance twinkle at night.

Vertical cladding gives it that sleek finish with a cube type shape, making it popular for those who like a minimalistic design.

Additional windows and screens can be added, and the doors can be moved to the side if needed.

It could be a Home Gym

The Elegance garden room works beautifully as a garden gym, due to it’s symmetry and front aspect glazing.

Leaving the back wall free for a TV screen or mirrors gives you the option of either looking out towards the garden, or taking part in a Peloton… the choice is yours.

If you’ve made the Elegance your choice for the home gym, then the next thing to do is to use the configurator.

Can I change the look?

Yes you can.

Your new Elegance building could look like this one if you wish, with the doors offset to one side.

Whilst the configurator can’t currently design it for you, this building from The Landscape Artisan shows exactly how the Elegance building can look with an offset design.

Garden Office Ideas

Plan the inside

The Elegance is perfect for a dual purpose garden room, combining an office and a relaxation area within one building. Given that the doors are in the centre, one side can be set up for work, and the other side for a hobby, either with simple furniture, or with an open screen separating the two.

Using the Ikea design tool will give you an insight as to where the furniture can be sited, so you can make the most of the building.

Internal Lining

All offices come with the choice of unpainted* T&G lining boards or unpainted* 12mm plywood boards with joining strips.

*Please note, these buildings have been painted by the customer after installation. 

If you would prefer to plaster your office after installation we would recommend choosing the non-insulated, non-lined and no electric option on the configurator. Alternatively you can add your own plasterboard on top of the lining provided.

Groundwork Requirements

For the last 30 years, we have tested the various options that are available for the garden building groundwork ‚Äď remember‚Ķ this is not a garden shed.¬† The available solutions are a concrete or paving slab base, ground-screws with a timber frame, suspended floors on piles, or timber decks above ground level.

The conclusion is… the best solution for the building is a ground supporting base.
A ground supported base is either a concrete pad or a paving slab base, and requires the soil to be dug out, and shuttered around the perimeter. The shuttering has a damp proof membrane, half filled with compacted hardcore, and finished with either concrete or smooth slabs. The slab needs to be flat and level, constructed to the same size as the building, and can either be done by your local builder or by one recommended by us.

The easiest solution is often a ground screw base, as this requires less man power, machinery and raw materials. It is also something that we can provide as a option for  majority of cases. This would only be suitable on sites that are clear of debris, solid surfaces, and level within 200mm.

What groundwork is required for garden offices?

Concrete Pad or Paving Slab Base
150mm compact hardcore: DPM: 100mm concrete: or
150mm compact hardcore: 50mm paving slabs on cement sub base

Garden rooms and offices require a flat & level pad of either concrete or paving slabs.
The base will need to be at least the same size as the building you are looking to have, and you
will require 400mm clearance to objects such as fences, trees or other buildings.
We can work within a 10mm tolerance (which a competent builder can easily achieve).

Alternatively, if you are within our standard radius we are able to offer the option of a ground-screw base (on certain models).

What access do I need in to my garden for you to install the building?

We require a minimum of side access of a minimum width of 600mm and a height of 1950mm to allow us to install your building. Should you be concerned about access in to your garden please email us pictures of the access and we will be able to confirm whether it is suitable.

What size vehicle are the buildings delivered on?

For the majority of our buildings, they are delivered on a 7.5 tonne lorry. This is the typical size of a concrete mixer lorry and will take up the equivalent space of 2 standard vehicles. We will require parking for our vehicle as close as possible to your property.

Is my garden room/office suitable for year round use?

The Garden Rooms and Offices are fully insulated for year round use. They are designed to be warm in the winter and cool in the summer, however the location in your garden will have an impact on how warm / cool the building is.

North faced gardens will have buildings that are naturally cooler throughout the year, whilst south facing garden will be naturally warmer throughout the year.

A building in the shade or in a north faced garden, will need a small heater during the winter months, but will remain cosy when the building is up to temperature.

A building in direct sunlight or in a south facing garden will benefit from more ventilation and blinds between the glass to keep the building cooler.

The size I required isn’t listed, can you still build it?

The price list has been created to give a price for our most common sizes. If you require a different size to fit in a space available, please contact us to get an accurate price.

Because each building is individually created for you, a guide for the price would be the closest to the size that you are looking to have. Please do get in touch on 01926 815757 and talk to us about your project.

How long will my building take to build on site?

Garden Rooms are usually constructed within 1-2 days (up to 6.2m x 3.6m sizes) depending on the final specifications.

Garages up to 6.1m x 6.1m are usually constructed within 1 day. Larger buildings will often take 2 days on site.

Commercial Buildings usually take 1 week on site Рdepending on the final specification.

How long will my building last?

We regularly have customers that have buildings re-roofed at 15 and twenty years old – who are quite confident that their buildings will last double that time if they get general maintenance and care.
This building was taken by a customer and we have worked out that it was 18 years old, and was still original. The customer has painted the building regularly with Protek Woodstain.

This garden office is 12 years old and has been regularly treated with Dark Oak wood protector. It features timber doors and windows, along with brown felt tiles.

This garage is 24 years old and still has it’s original layer of green mineral felt.

What is the lead time?

The lead time for a building can vary between 2 – 6 months.

You are welcome to book in advance to secure a delivery slot, and still make adjustments to the design up to the point that the base has been constructed.
(Please note that items that have been specifically order for you will still need to be paid for)

How do I get internet to my garden room/garden office?

There are two ways to get internet to the new Garden Office.

Option 1 is to have a CAT 5 cable coming from a router in your house, down the garden and into the back of the building.
We can supply a back box specifically for a CAT 5 cable. Usually the cable is better to be unbroken – hence we don’t internally wire with a CAT 5 cable to pug into

Option 2 is to purchase a WiFi extender kit or a mobile data dongle.

Please explain the electrics?

Garden Rooms and Offices include the first fix wiring, along with the consumer unit, lighting and the faceplates.

All wiring is installed within the cavity and is ready for an electrician to connect the tail ends of the wiring at the consumer unit and the faceplates.

The electrician will need to provide and install a power feed from your house / garage to the new building – usually a 6mm armoured cable is used. The wiring provided is 1.5mm cables for lighting on a 6 Amp fused circuit, and 2.5mm cables with a 32 Amp breaker for the sockets – on a ring main.
There is space for a 3rd breaker if it is required for another feed.

It usually takes half a day for the internal connections, plus the time required for the electrician to install the cable that you require.

Our electrician can offer customers in Warwickshire and Worcestershire with installation and certification independently Рplease contact him directly (Andy Punnett) via his website www.aspelectrics.co.uk If you live in Berkshire or Hampshire, please contact Ben Thorp on 07917 131984

Please explain the roofing options available?

Pitched roof buildings can have any of the roofing options that we provide, whereas the single slope buildings are only available with steel roofing sheets.

Felt Tiles is standard on the pitched roof garden rooms and garages. They are created in a sheet format that has 4 tiles on each sheet – the above tile covers the lower sheet by 50% to provide a double layer of tiles. In addition to this we also cover the roof with breathable underfelt before the tiles are fitted – which creates a 3 layer roofing system with an average lifespan of 15 years.

Steel Roofing Sheets are covered with plastisol and available in a range of colours. It is fitted to the roof onto the breathable underfelt to create a 2 layer roof covering that is condensation free. When fitted to the Garden Offices the insulation in the roof ensures virtually no noise is heard during inclement weather. Average lifespan is 25 years for the steel sheeting.

Onduline Roofing is a standard roof finish for stables. It is felt and bitumen compressed into a corrugated format and can be nailed directly onto the purlins with or without boarding underneath. For the optimum life expectance of 15 years we would recommend boarding and underfelt as a base for the Onduline to sit onto. The Onduline can sit directly onto the purlins however this will reduce the average lifespan of the product. (Only available on equestrian buildings).

Tapco Slate is a perfect solution for customers looking for a tiled roof look, but would like the building supplied & fitted by one company. Fitted onto boarding, underfelt & battens the Tapco slate is a man made lightweight roofing solution that appears as realistic as natural slates. Available in a range of colours, with a maximum roof pitch of 25 degrees, the average lifespan is 40 years for this roof finish.

Green mineral felt is a polyester based felt and is much thicker and stronger than normal shed roofing felt that you would buy from a DIY store. Average lifespan is 6-8 years.

Clay or Slate Tiles @ 30 degrees. Customers that require this finish will require a tiler to supply & fit the battens, membrane, tiles and soffits for this option. Warwick Buildings will obtain the trusses and install them at 600mm centres in readiness for the tiler to continue from that point. The two end trusses will be clad, however please note that there will not be any overhangs to the gable end on this option.

How much clearance do I need around my building?

We require a minimum of 600mm around the building to be able to fit the cover strips and guttering on the outside of the building.

If you have less space available please contact us on 01926 815757, as we will discuss the options available on an individual basis – it may be that we can still accommodate your project.

What can I have without planning?

Buildings close to a boundary will need to be 2.5m high. If you require a taller building without planning you will need to be more than 2m away from your boundary.
You will need to locate your building either to the side or to the back of the house – buildings in front of the house will need planning permission.

Please note that the customer is responsible for planning permission, and may need to contact the council for full clarification of their permitted development rights.

If you require planning permission, you will need a local planning consultant or architect to prepare the drawings required for a planning application. We can provide the information for you to allow the drawings to be produced. You can then either submit the application yourself or employ someone to do so on your behalf.

What maintenance is required?

The weather, location and the sun can all have an effect on buildings, however throughout our 35 years we understand how our product works and how it stands up to the test of time.

Your maintenance schedule should be:

  • To clean the gutters out to keep free from debris
  • Adjust doors and windows that have expanded or contracted through weather conditions
  • Remove debris from the roof
  • Treat the outside of the building as required to maintain an attractive appearance. (This provides a waterproof coat to the timber and keeps the moisture content of the wood consistent – which in turn improves the stability of the timber, and reduces the expansion & contraction of the timber)

Our guarantee is in respect of design and manufacturing faults, corrosion and rot for 10 years from the date of installation.
