Our garden buildings are anchored with a robust foundation system, featuring a concrete subframe atop concrete pad or pile foundations. In line with our commitment to bespoke garden rooms, the foundation type may vary depending on site conditions, occasionally employing a dry system to replace concrete pads with large, deep plastic crates filled with stone. This innovative approach not only provides exceptional strength but also aligns with our sustainable ethos, reducing our carbon footprint.
We consider the foundations a critical aspect of our buildings’ structural integrity and longevity. These systems prevent rising dampness, ensure incredible strength and durability, and effectively distribute the building’s weight to the ground. They also enable natural surface water drainage and minimise disturbance to surrounding tree roots, utilising significantly less concrete than traditional slabs. Should you decide to relocate or remove your garden room, the foundations can be conveniently covered.
The flooring includes a 6-layer build-up, consisting of:
- Laminate flooring
- Flooring underlay
- 22mm industrial-grade moisture-resistant tongue and groove floorboard
- C16-C24 graded treated timber 150mm
- 90mm Celotex or similar insulation
- Breathable damp-proof layer
