Our client was looking for a garden-based workspace to replace their home office, which would better accommodate staff who were arriving at different times of the day and minimise disruption to their family. They tasked JML Garden Rooms with creating an office that complemented their immaculately landscaped grounds, was suited to the size of their team of staff and met with planning restrictions to gain consent more easily in a strict conservation area.
Once the size, style and location of the project was agreed, our design technicians submitted a planning application to the City of Edinburgh Council. Having gained consent for two garden rooms the previous year within Edinburgh, JML Garden Rooms knew what was required and achieved the consent well within the eight weeks allowed by the Council.
The client wanted the entire frontage of the garden room to replicate a recent extension carried out at their property, therefore a full width sliding door set was installed from Scandinavia – no mean feat with an overall weight of 310kg.
We carried out all services required by the client, including removal of the existing structure, site clearance, groundworks, manufacture, supply and erection of the garden room. Once wind and watertight, we ensured full audio visual and I.T. solutions were available to enable an office set up with floor boxes, CAT 6 cabling and a telephone connection. To finish the project, we created a path and steps through the garden to match the existing landscaping – all of which was carried out whilst the client was out of the country on holiday. Maximum effect when returning from holiday, with minimum fuss and disruption!
“Just wanted to drop an email to say how delighted we are with how the room looks and also the impeccable way ever ything was left. Please pass on our thanks to the whole team.”
