we started in 1989 the design of our buildings have
evolved to correspond with our customers requirements
for the ultimate garden office.
Homestead Garden Offices and rooms are designed for all year round
use and have an extremely long life expectancy. We have
recently replaced an old cricket pavilion with similar
sized timbers to ours which was built in 1949!
Warning! do not rely on a single skin timber cladding
to keep warm in winter.
Our insulation system duplicates the system used in
The external and internal timber wall and roof claddings
are fixed to a strong framework which creates a cavity.
This cavity is then compacted with heat insulation which
keeps your office warm in the winter and cool in the
summer – just like a house.
We include a solid pine timber floor which will not
sag, flex or bounce.
Asphalt tiles – tried and trusted as the main
pitched roof tile for houses in all America come with a 25 year guarantee. Available
in brown, slate, red and green, they will remain watertight
For an ‘inglenook’ look to the roof cedar
shingles are an alternative that will ‘weather’ naturally and provide at least 25 year protection.
Windows and Doors
Exterior timber windows and doors are provided by the
UK’s top manufacturer. Produced to ISO quality
standards, they achieve the requirements of The BWF
timber window accreditation scheme. Fitted with double
glazing, draught excluders and lockable handles.
All exterior paintwork including the inside of windows
and doors is spray painted in our factory prior to delivery.
You can choose from 15 standard colours or we can usually
match to a colour of your choice. Alternatively, a wood
stain finish is offered for clients who require a more ‘rustic’ look.
We usually install a concrete base to the complete footprint of the building,
unlike a pad system favored by other companies. This ensures against any long term
sinkage or settling does not occur.
We are also able to erect the building on stilts or brick plinths which
can be particularly useful in flood plain areas or uneven ground.
Our electrician will discuss your exact requirements
but our standard package includes a consumer unit (fuseboard)
4 double sockets, tracks of spotlights and a heater
with thermostat and timer. The heating can be programmed
to come on and off – just like your central heating.
Electricity is connected to your house
supply via armoured cable.
