A Garden Room in time for summer?

by TG Escapes | May 28, 2014 | Blog, Residential

Oak before ash, in for a splash: ash before oak, in for a soak… say the old wives. Well, my oak was in almost full leaf before the ash started to sprout green and my glass is most definitely half full. Some may call me deluded, but I have a feeling that this summer is going to be a good one and I am really looking forward to getting out in my garden to get on with some serious work, not to mention copious amounts of R&R. If you too are excited by the prospect of summer, but haven’t yet managed to get round to the matter of installing a garden room to help you get the most of being outside, there is still time to get one in before the summer months get in their stride.

A Garden Escape will provide you with a unique, elegant and versatile space that will allow you to effortlessly bring the outdoors into the life of you and your family…and we can do it fast. From the first time we meet with you, we will rapidly set the process in motion. Your initial survey (undertaken by one of our experts) takes just one hour, at a time that suits you. During the meeting, we will listen to all your ideas and design the room with you, including choosing a location that will fit perfectly within your garden ensuring maximum privacy for you and your neighbours. We will also be able to assess whether planning permission will be necessary and if it is, you can rest assured that we will manage the whole process for you.

Within a few days of our initial visit you will receive a complete no-obligation quote, which comes with a promise of no hidden costs. Should you choose to proceed, we will immediately commence the planning process: after more than 400 successful planning applications we are adept at avoiding any fuss or delay and so we can swiftly move on to the build itself. We don’t outsource any of our contracts: every aspect of our service is carried out by our own team of craftsmen who will manage everything for you. They also happen to be really nice guys who know how to get on with the job, without intruding on your space or time, and they are fast!

Within a matter of a few weeks, you will be enjoying your bespoke garden haven, even if my earlier predictions of a great summer fail to materialise…..I’m afraid my weather forecast is not included in the guarantees you will receive on the building! Whatever the weather, however, you and your family will be able to enjoy being outside and come the summer holidays, it’s a great space for the children to escape the sedentary and solitary temptations of all that modern technology. In the words of one happy customer:

"...their sheer efficiency was wonderful. The build process was very easy. The two guys worked for a week and it was as if they weren’t here. Very impressive."
