Crowded House

by TG Escapes | Mar 12, 2014 | Blog, Residential

Has your family outgrown your house? Are the arguments raging between previously peaceful room sharing siblings as they grow older and larger and their need for personal space develops? Time for a move? Or maybe not. In terms of stress inducing events, moving house is right up there with divorce, bereavement and having a baby.

You are probably shuddering at the mere thought of the relentless river of paperwork; the steady stream of strangers scrutinising your home (which will need to be kept constantly tidy) and, perhaps the biggest horror of all, the flimsy chain of unpredictable prospective purchasers and sellers. It all amounts to a pretty unappealing prospect, even before you start to think about the money. Valuation and survey fees, searches, legal costs, stamp duty and (my own personal pet hate) estate agents fees….plus VAT. And once you’ve moved, there’s the refurbishing and redecorating to organise and pay for.

Maybe there’s an easier way….maybe a Garden Escape could give you the extra space you need with a minimum of disruption and hassle. It is likely to save you a bob or two into the bargain. Your project will begin with a consultation with one of our expert surveyors, at a time that suits you, who will listen to your needs and ideas before assessing and measuring your chosen site. We will then provide you with a detailed, no obligation quote which will include, as standard, connection to mains amenities and all interior finishes.

If you choose to proceed with the project we will take care of the planning permission on your behalf: with over 400 successful applications under our belt we know how to shepherd your vision through the planning process without fuss or delay. Once we are ready to begin the build, we will assign you a team of dedicated, skilled craftsmen who offer a friendly and respectful approach.

Our bespoke garden rooms are architect designed and use the very latest in environmentally friendly materials, methods and technologies. The end result is an elegant, sustainable building that will fit beautifully within your chosen location; that will fulfil your unique requirements and that will be highly energy efficient and inexpensive to run. All with a minimum of inconvenience and stress. Lovely.
