Air BnB in Goostrey
8 November 2021
We were approached by a family who wanted to fulfil their dream of operating an Airbnb property. They had scoured the local area looking for suitable properties but nothing quite matched their existing location, and that’s when they came across Olympian Garden Buildings.
The contemporary lines of our cedar clad garden rooms really caught their eye and they began to envision an alternative option for their Airbnb dream.
Using one of our bespoke Contemporary Garden Rooms, they would be able create their perfect building in the grounds of their own garden, and at a fraction of the cost of buying a separate property.
The requirements for their build were for a stand-alone, self-contained building, incorporating a living room complete with sink and food preparation area, and a double bedroom with en-suite bathroom.
The brief was straightforward, the plot was not!
The space designated for the building was an angular, odd-shaped area of the garden on the banks of a stream. An idyllic spot but a difficult project in the wrong hands. This is where working with the expert team at Olympian comes into its own.
We were able to utilise our vast experience to create a completely custom design around the unusually shaped garden, a building that not only met all aspects of the brief but one that would also be an attractive feature on their property too.
A bespoke shape, the completed building has an overall size of 7.5m x 4.5m which was partitioned internally to create the three separate rooms required.
The main living area is a bright, spacious room featuring a large landscape window, 2.4m wide bi-fold doors which open out onto the landscaped garden and seating area, and a single door used as the main entrance.
Internal oak glazed doors lead to the double bedroom which includes a full-length portrait window, allowing for views over the surrounding countryside plus an additional high level transom window.
Sliding doors lead from the bedroom to the en-suite with basin and WC. Another transom window ensures this small but perfectly formed room has lots of natural light.
The external windows and doors are anthracite grey which creates a stunning contrast to the rich cedar wood cladding.
The project was meticulously planned by the team at Olympian, coordinating our installation teams alongside longstanding contractors for the required plumbing and electrical works.
Much like you would with a new build house, we worked with our customers to plan the layout of the lights and electrical sockets, including positioning of the external downlights which illuminate the building at night. All internal rooms are finished to a high specification plastered finish with skirting, and completed with our standard Quick Step Impressive Ultra laminate flooring.
This was an exciting to project to work on as we thrive on finding solutions and delivering a finished product that exceeds our customers’ expectations. The final result is a stunning addition to their property, and the best part is they can now start reaping the rewards of their investment as they run it as an Airbnb.
What our customers think
"We had an insulated Alderley installed in our garden last week. We would like to say a huge thank you to the team of four (team leader Chris, Chris, Kris, and Nico) who battled with the access to our garden through our neighbours garden. The team were hard working, polite and made time to chat about the installation. We are really pleased with the quality of the build and the installation. This is the second building we have bought from Olympian and would recommend them to friends and family. Thank you."L Smith
"Absolutely love my summerhouse which was fitted today in this horrendous wet weather! Staff were friendly, couldn't say a bad thing about the whole experience of it being fitted. Thank you and shall highly recommend you to friends and family."Alison Tilstone
""Fantastic service from start to finish.Rik Hodkinson
Would recommend to anyone.""
"Fantastic service from Olympian Garden Buildings. Having purchased a couple of sheds in the past we then purchased a 16x8 foot lovely garden building with a cedar wood tile roof and a beautiful Gazebo surround for our hot tub, also with a cedar tiled roof. Dealing with Nick and his team was effortless, superb knowledge of construction and design. They did exactly what they said they would do when they said they would do it. The quality of the buildings and the construction by the team was fantastic, even in some appalling weather! You most certainly get what you pay for, and competitively priced. Coming back to put the finishing touches to the Gazebo, the team could not have been more knowle"Oliver Bamber
"I love my 10ft x 7ft Cheshire Studio. I'm looking forward to painting it next year like the one on display. I have a sofa and electricity, just waiting on blinds this week. I'm so pleased I ordered from Olympian Garden Buildings instead of ordering online. The quality of the summerhouse is fantastic. The service was also brilliant from start to finish. A contractor from Olympian also did my concrete base which was half the price than the 4 quotes I'd received previously! I would definitely recommend Olympian Garden Buildings to anybody looking for a summerhouse."Nicola Foster
