Sometimes your indoor space is just not quite enough to fit everyone in comfortably – especially at times like Christmas when extra family members come to stay and friends are popping in.
But creating extra space through renovation might seem like a luxury you can’t afford. The cost of extending is likely to involve major capital expenditure. And, in the current climate, prices, lead times and the availability of materials and labour are unpredictable. Not to mention the upheaval, time and inconvenience of having builders in, and maybe even having to vacate your home while the work is done.
So is there another way of creating some breathing space in your home – separate play space for the kids, a quiet getaway for the adults, or a home office that frees up the space it’s currently taking up?
How about using your garden space to create some extra room? If you’re lucky enough to have a garden (and it doesn’t have to be big), you’ve got the ideal solution to the problem of overcrowding indoors.
At Garden Affairs, we pride ourselves in being able to offer an outdoor building for any size of garden. With a wide range to choose from, minor disruption to your day-to-day living (all the construction happens outside so you won’t be inconvenienced), and competitive prices, a new garden building could be an exciting, practical and affordable way for you to expand your living space.
A garden room is ideal if:
But isn’t a garden building just a posh shed? And won’t it be just as cold and damp, especially in winter?
Garden buildings have come a long way since the days when they were little more than sheds with sofas. Now, if you choose wisely, you can get yourself a building that’s as warm, watertight and robust as a brick-and-mortar show home. The perfect cosy winter hideaway!
Read on to find out how one of our garden rooms could provide the comfortable outdoor space you need, all year round.
Our Linea garden buildings offer you a choice of high-spec, luxury and eco-friendly offices, studios and summerhouses, created with warmth in mind.
They come with high-grade insulation built into the walls, roof and floor, providing a valuable layer of protection from the outside temperature.
Together with the sustainably-sourced timber, this creates a naturally breathable building, which will keep you warm in winter and cool in summer. And you needn’t worry about condensation, which can lead to the build-up of dampness in non-breathable, poorly ventilated buildings.
The warm tongue and groove/MDF internal lining and laminate flooring provide a refined finish. And we use double-glazing on the doors and windows to further reduce heat loss.
So not only does the Linea offer you valuable space for a garden getaway, you can be guaranteed warmth and comfort in the winter months – the ideal Christmas cabin to escape to when the lounge is just that little bit too…. cosy.
Your versatile garden room needs a few bells and whistles to maximise its potential. One of these is electricity, for lighting, electrical equipment (like consoles and computers) and, when it’s really cold outside, heating.
With our electrical service, you can pick and choose the fixtures you want, and exactly where you want them. And, remember, your building is in the heart of the great outdoors, so it might get nippy in the cold winter months. So it’s important you heat it well. We highly recommend the installation of a convection heater to create a really cosy atmosphere.
If you live within a 100-mile radius of our Trowbridge show site, we’ll do all the installation work for you. Put your feet up while we prepare the base, install the building and bring in the electrician to wire up the building, and make it move-in ready.
The Linea range offers more than just some extra space when things are getting cramped in the house. With a Linea garden room, you can create all manner of additional living solutions, from a garden office or studio to a teen den, hobby room or art studio.
We’ll help you customise your new space to your needs. You can divide your building into two or more internal areas, for work and leisure. A Linea building can also serve as a modern storage solution: we can install cupboards in your cabin, allowing you to free up storage space in the house.
And don’t forget that your Linea building is not just for Christmas. It will serve you faithfully throughout the year. Its timber structure will breathe as the seasons change, creating a comfortable living space all year round. In the warmer months, you can open the double doors onto your garden to create an indoor-outdoor space – perfect conditions for working for home or enjoying some leisure time away from it all.
A Linea garden building will prove itself to be an easy, practical and highly versatile addition to your home for many years to come.
