When does a Swift project become a Garden House? Well, for some clients, it is an essential and transforming addition to the facilities of their home. A building that can provide independent accommodation for a family member or guest, whilst still being integral to the main home.
A garden house can be your ideal answer to providing space for someone on a temporary or even permanent basis. For example we have been asked to design a garden house for families where a grown-up son or daughter has returned from university. Their needs for space and independence have grown beyond their old bedroom, but living at home is what everyone wants.
A garden house will have a whole host of facilities built in, giving this new space its own character and desirability. One important issue that we always point out to our clients, is that planning consent is needed whenever a detached garden house is to be used for overnight accommodation. We will deal with all the paperwork and the planning process leaving you to spend time deciding how the rooms will be best used. In addition, we will handle the building regulations that are the norm for this kind of development. A garden house will adhere to all of our usual standards of comfort, safety and durability. Here are some of the features that are perfect for this kind of project:
- Kitchenette with built in appliances
- Shower room, bathroom or wet-room facilities
- Connection to telephone and broadband services plus intercom system (audio and/or visual)
- Fold out concealed bed furnishings
- Black-out blinds
- Movable room dividers
- Zoned and mood lighting control systems
- Built in audio and TV systems
- Security systems
