Part Glazed Roofed Garden Room

Our garden rooms give you the feeling of being outdoors while still enjoying the comforts of your home. With high spec glass and modern insulation they are a very energy efficient addition. We maximise the window space to create an extremely light and airy atmosphere while the Oak frame blends in with the outside greenery.

All of our glazed buildings are installed with a direct glazing system meaning the glass is externally fixed with Oak cover boards and rubber gaskets. This is a proven method to allow for the Oak to move freely.

With exposed Oak rafters and glazed roof lanterns these spaces are designed for use all year around and become the main living space for most of our clients.

A few words from our customer

“We were very pleased to discover Dorset Timber Framing and Dean with his traditional construction methods, passion for his work and immediately engaging manner. These are characteristics which remained and supported us throughout the whole process of confidence building, outline design, detailed design, planning application and then the exciting period of the build.

We call the building that Dean has provided a ‘garden room’, as it is glazed on two sides and all along the lower portion of one half of the roof. It exceeds all our expectations (as he constantly told us it would!) in terms of the quality, beauty, finish and comfort. Although of very different materials to the existing building it is sympathetic to it and compliments it superbly to the extent that it was described as “magical” by one of the professionals visiting the site. The scale of praise from everyone who visits us is almost embarrassing. Dean has helped us and worked with us at every stage. Nothing was too much trouble, all concerns or problems raised were readily accepted and resolved, customer care was always paramount as was his attention to detail. The quality standard aspired to was always perfection (“millimetre perfect”, he could frequently be heard to mutter).

The finished building is one of great pleasure, it is more than we ever hoped for. It has also been a great privilege and pleasure to work with Dean as we watched our dream materialise. We will always be grateful – thank you.”
