Embracing sustainability: The rise of sustainable Garden Rooms
We’re conscious of our impact on the environment. We want our customers to be safe in the knowledge that all our materials are safe and ethically sourced in our sustainable garden rooms.
In recent years, there has been a growing demand for sustainable solutions in the construction industry. This trend has extended to garden rooms, as homeowners seek environmentally friendly and energy-efficient alternatives. Sustainable garden rooms not only provide a functional and versatile space but also minimize their ecological footprint. In this article, we explore the concept of sustainable garden rooms and their benefits for both homeowners and the planet.
Sustainabile Garden Rooms: The right choice
We use building materials only from trusted suppliers. All of our timber is carefully selected from well-managed FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) and PEFC (The Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification) certified forests.
Our garden rooms are built with a low maintenance metal insulated composite roof. They are clad in cedar, chosen specifically for its natural ability to take care of itself. If you have questions about any of our materials, please do not hesitate to contact us today and we will be more than happy to help.
We stopped using concrete for our garden rooms base and started using the groundscrews instead. As well as being more environmentally friendly, the ground screws offer several benefits over concrete as no digging or excavation is required and no mess or damage to your site or the surrounding area. The ground screws are 70% faster to install than concrete and construction of your garden room can be started right away .
We work any time of the year, in any weather conditions without concerns of frost or rain delaying installation.
Sustainable garden rooms prioritize energy efficiency to reduce reliance on traditional energy sources. Incorporating insulation materials with high thermal performance helps maintain a comfortable indoor temperature throughout the year. Additionally, installing energy-efficient windows and doors ensures optimal insulation and minimizes heat loss. Renewable energy solutions, such as solar panels, can further enhance the sustainability of the garden room by powering lighting and electrical appliances.
Natural Lighting and Ventilation
Maximizing natural lighting and ventilation is a key aspect of sustainable garden room design. By incorporating large windows, skylights and glass french doors, homeowners can capitalize on natural sunlight, reducing the need for artificial lighting during the day. This not only saves energy but also creates a bright and inviting atmosphere. Proper ventilation systems, including adjustable windows and ventilation fans, ensure a constant flow of fresh air, promoting a healthy indoor environment.
Sustainable garden rooms can integrate rainwater harvesting systems to collect and reuse rainwater for various purposes, such as irrigation or flushing toilets. This practice reduces water consumption and eases the strain on local water resources.
Sustainable Garden Rooms: Green roofs
To further enhance sustainability, consider incorporating a green roof into your garden room design. Green roofs provide insulation, absorb rainwater and promote biodiversity. They can also help your garden room to fit into the environment from the birds eye!
