Client Comments:

Thank you very much - we are really happy to have our new gym and I would definitely recommend Garden Spaces.
We have been very impressed with the whole thing from the initial meeting, communication throughout the project and of course the build itself.

Requirement

Mr Dowses a keen cyclist and personal trainer, wanted to make clever use of some space between his house and fence to install a bespoke gym and secure cycle storage area. He contacted Garden Spaces and our designer met him on site to carry out a free no obligation site survey. They came up with a design that maximised the space available without detracting from the garden nor infringing on light into the house, as the images reflect.

Our Solution

SIPs construction: As with all our buildings, exceptionally thermally efficient and robust. Requires minimal energy to achieve desired ambient temperatures throughout the year.

Integral storage: Accessible at the rear of the gym, a carefully thought through space, large enough to manoeuvre in and out of and wall hang two or more cycles.

Additional Height: Being a gym, with a treadmill, head height was important. To increase the height above 2.5m externally we had to go through planning but there were no objections.

Glazing: A set of French doors and two fixed panels across the front (all 2.23m high) with A rated energy efficient toughened double glazing and uPVC frames.

Western Red Cedar cladding: This studio was clad front and back with the sides tight to the house and fence finished with cement particle board, painted with weather shield paint to match the frames and deck step.

Finished flooring: Superb for gyms - our 10mm v groove laminate flooring, highly durable, easy to clean and comes with a 25 year residential warranty.

Electrical installations: 6 internal (dimmable) and 3 external LED downlights, plus 3 double power sockets and a strip light in the stre room, all Part P certified.
