To make the most of the available space, a bespoke two-bedroom garden annexe was custom-designed by award-winning architectural practice, Architeco.  The finished annexe has views across the garden and features a sitting room, kitchenette and shower room, alongside two double bedrooms.

JML Garden Rooms' sister company, JML Contracts, was able to deliver all the civils works reqauired for service connections to the newly installed annexe, including moling up the long drive to teh main road.  This allowed pipes to be laid without needing to dig expensive and potentially disruptive trenches.  With the civils works completed by JML Contracts, it meant that JML had full quality control over the project from the outset ensuring it ran on time and on budget.

The necessary applications for planning and building warrants were all carried out by Architeco to ensure an easy and straightforward process for the client.

Services Delivered

JML Garden Rooms was approached by a client in the historic town of St. Andrews wishing to make more of their sizeable, but under-utilised, garden space.  They were keen to replace an existing garage wtih a functional two-bedroom annexe which could be used both as accommodation for visiting friends and family and as an independent holiday let to generate additional income.

What the client said...

"I have a beautiful two-bedroom garden annexe in my garden, which was built by the team at JML.  I can highly recommend this company for their standard of build, which is to a very high specification, and to be honest, just how nice they all were during the whole process!  From the time I met John initially to discuss the build and all the team from thereon in, it was a great experience in what cuold have been a stressful time.  Of course, there are unprecedented hurdles on the way, but all were dealt with efficiently and cheerfully.  For you and your team to hit your estimated build costs at every turn and to do it before deadline was a real credit to your organisation and efficiency.  It was also a massive relief to ourselves.  We could not have asked for better building contractors.  I now feel that I have an investment taking up the space where there was a very large garage full of junk!  Thank you JML!"
