Cheshire, UK October 7th 2012 – With mortgages difficult to come by and the cost of moving house acting as a natural deterrent, more and more homeowners are looking for ways in which to improve the usefulness of their existing property. Increasing the living space within a property is one way in which it is possible to enjoy greater living without the cost or hassle of moving house. Extensions, conversions, and conservatories are proven and popular methods for doing exactly this.
With a garden room UK homeowners can enjoy additional benefits when compared to these techniques. The garden room is, effectively, a detached exterior building. It does not connect to the house like an extension and doesn’t detract from the existing living space like a garage or loft conversion. It also offers greater energy conservation and warmth than a conservatory thanks to its hard roof, rather than a glazed roof.
Building regulations may apply to exterior buildings. If the additional room will be used for sleeping or has a floor space greater than 30 square metres then it is likely that it will need planning approval. However, smaller builds created for purposes other than sleeping accommodation may not require planning permission. Homeowners should check with their planner, or with their local planning department, to ensure that this is the case, however.
Swift designs, constructs, and fits high quality garden rooms that are designed to improve the standard of living that homeowners can enjoy. Rooms can be used for anything ranging from home study to home workouts and every type of room can be finished so that it offers the exact features and fittings that the proud new owner really requires.
