The Garden Pod Garden Office or Garden Room are constructed using 1 1/2" x 3" (38mm x 75mm) selected framing. The framework is built and clad with 16mm x 125mm tanalised shiplap cladding on the exterior, providing you with a 25 year rot resistant finish.
The interior is lined with 12mm MDF, to provide a high quality and attractive finish, with cavity filled 50mm polystyrene insulation. Skirting and appropriate moldings are also fitted to provide a professional finish.
The floor has a 12mm plywood finish, and sits onto 1 1/2" x 3" (38mm x 75mm) tanalised floor joists with 75mm Celotex insulation underneath the plywood. A second level of tanalised bearers lifts the floor away from the concrete base to provide the necessary air flow beneath the building.
The Garden Pod Garden Office roof construction comes in the Mono roof version only:
The Mono roof is popular when you want a contemporary look or you are looking for a garden building that is not too obtrusive in the garden
Alternatively, we normally specify the mono roof if you are trying to stay below the 2.5m high planning rule if you are within two metres of your boundary.
The Mono roof has a 5 layer specification with 12mm MDF ceiling, 125mm sloping joists, with 50mm polystyrene, 12mm OSB, fully under felted and a metal roof with trims.
The mono roof design has guttering to the rear only in either black or brown
The lights, sockets, and wiring are all in place ready to be connected by a qualified electrician. Standard offices are complete with a consumer unit (with breakers), a light switch, lights (with bulbs & transformers), and sockets, although more can be purchased to suit your requirements.
Please note that all sockets and lights will need a qualified electrician to connect the wiring at both the consumer unit end, and the socket / light end to comply with the current regulations. In addition to this your electrician will also need to connect the electric feed from the external power source to your office.
