Helix - Family room with storage - Teddington

Client Name:

King

Usage:

Family room with storage

Specification:

External dimensions: 7.58m by 4.98m
Internal area: 24msq
Storage area: 5.8msq

Requirement

The Kings, like many families, wanted to capitalise on garden capacity to create more living space, for use as a family room / games room. Practically, we all need garden storage and they requested that their design included a sizeable storage area. They cleared the site prior to our arrival but if required this is something we can do.

Our Solution

Bespoke design: We don't install off the shelf solutions but bespoke modular builds that have been designed to fit the exact dimensions and finish you need. This design features anti-slip composite decking across the front of the building with a matching roof overhang above.

Integral Storage: Accessible through a separate external door, seamlessly clad to blend with the rest of the front elevation.

Windows and doors: A bank of floor to ceiling glazing compromising fixed panels and French doors, gives this room an immense sense of spaciousness, with views across the garden. The frames are uPVC (anthracite grey externally, white internally) with A rated double glazing further enhancing the outstanding thermal performance of the building.

External finish: We offer two types of cladding: thermowood (standard for Helix studios) and western red cedar (a popular upgrade). Both are kiln dried and secured with secret stainless steel fixings. The Kings upgraded to cedar across the front and side elevations with the rear wall finished with cement particle board and painted to match the window and door frames.

Flooring: Our v-groove oak-effect laminate looks authentic and is exceptionally durable, coming with a 25-year manufacturer's residential warranty.

Heating: A wall mounted convector heater with a thermostatic digital control panel was installed to boost the temperature when required. 

Electrics: Our electrician installed 15 internal dimmable LED down-lights, 4 external LED lights within the deep over hang across the front, 8 double power sockets and a single strip light in the storage room, all Part P certified.
