Green Oak Garden Room In Crich

The brief for this green oak garden room in Crich was to create a true extension to the house which the clients could use all year round.

After detailed discussions with the client, a design was agreed with the finished garden room to measure 5 metres x 4 metres.

As usual, we built the timber elements in our workshops, ensuring excellent fit ready for dismantling, removal to site and then reconstruction.

The following timber sizes were used to create the green oak frame:

Corner posts 150mm x 150mm
Intermediate posts 100mm x 150mm
Head of frames 150mm x 180mm
Ridge beam 75mm x 300mm
Purlins 100mm x 300mm

 

 

 

Once the frame had been relocated to the site, reconstruction began with uprigths and sides of the room being attached to brick and stone stub walls and the stone end wall.

 

With the base of the frame in place, itwas time to attach the ridge and purlins.

 Next to go on were the rafters and the roof was now structurally sound.

250mm x 500mm natural slates were attached to 25mm x 50mm treated battens fixed on 25mm x 100mm treated counter battens with 100mm polyurethane insulation on 12mm MDF underneath.

 The gable end was then clad...

 and ridge tiles finished off the roof.

 Next to go in was the glazing - 4:20:4 28mm Clear K glass, toughened for excellent insulation in the winter and even temperature in the summer.

 All wood was treated with boiled linseed mixed 50/50 with white sprits with the rafters and purlins looking fabulous against the white plaster ceiling boards.

 A natural black slate floor was laid to complement the wood burner.

 The stone gable end wall will be softened with planting.

The picture below shows detail of the eaves and the excellent fit between the glazing and the glazing bars.

 The finished garden room was a great successand will now be made to look even more spectacular with landscaping of the surrounding garden.
