In our experience, a garden room tends towards more substantial construction with masonry and green oak (or less-rustic painted finishes), forming more of an ‘extension’:
• Insulated walls, floor and roof space.
• A solid tiled or slated roof.
• There’s often roof glazing and a glazed gable, to increase natural light to the room.
• Modern interpretations of orangeries often have flat roofs with multi-paned glazed timber roof lanterns for natural light. Flat roofs are typically finished with lead or a modern single-ply polymeric roof membrane.
• A brick base typically extends up to the roof and adjoining walls of the house, but standing out from the house with substantial timber construction.
For garden rooms, we regularly supply and fit manufactured joinery elements and specialise in vaulted roof structures that go into buildings supplied by others. For your peace of mind and the room’s optimal future performance, we can design the structure and calculate the roof insulation so it meets applicable regulations.
We also design, manufacture and install feature roof trusses that give such character to impressive cathedral-style vaulted roofs.
