Contemporary Garden Room in Nantwich
30 October 2020
Our customers were facing an age-old dilemma. They and their growing family had simply outgrown their home. They loved their house and didn’t want to move.
The cost of building work was astronomical, and they didn’t want the disruption (and the mess) that comes with having a house extension.
Then they discovered they could utilise their garden and add the much-needed extra space using a garden room. It really was a game-changer!
The vision was to create a ‘chill out’ room within the garden, somewhere for the family to retreat to when the house was feeling overcrowded.
Our customers had done lots of research and knew exactly the look and high specification they were wanting to achieve, “We shopped around for our dream garden room, visiting many competitors but nothing matched the specification, build quality and service at Olympian and so for an ever so slight premium we went with the best for our investment”.
The overall building size agreed upon was 5.5m x 3.5m. When planning the layout, we went through in fine detail how the family would use their new room and took into consideration the other plans they had for the rest of the garden design so the area would flow as one.
The room itself needed to include a kitchen area with mini fridge, large corner sofa, widescreen TV and an integrated music system.
We factored into the design large 3m wide aluminium bi fold doors which would open up onto a new patio area, bringing the outdoors in and making it feel like one big space.
The bi folds doors were flanked at either side by full length portrait windows and another on the left-hand side which allowed for an uninterrupted view down the garden. A separate opening window in the kitchen area was incorporated to allow for ventilation.
Our usual high-quality materials were used as standard throughout, including brushed chrome internal fittings and anthracite external down lights, which perfectly complimented the aluminium doors and windows.
The entire area was landscaped once the build was complete and alongside the garden room it now features a new patio area paved in Indian sandstone, a hot tub and additional outdoor seating. It really is a fantastic transformation which has given the family extra multi-use space to enjoy as they wish, “We absolutely love having a space away from home we can take turns chilling in and we only have to go down the garden to do it”.
The garden room build took 3 weeks to complete, from start to finish, which included plumbing, electrics, lighting, and plastering – a huge time saving made compared to a house extension.
Our customers are delighted with their new ‘chill out’ zone, the garden room and the landscaped garden have given their house a new lease of life. Don’t just take our word for it, read their review below:
“We shopped around for our dream garden room, visiting many competitors but nothing matched the specification, build quality and service at Olympian and so for an ever so slight premium we went with the best for our investment. From the very outset we were treated as individuals and provided with the best customer service, paying attention to all our requirements, and advising along the way. Then, just prior to installation COVID hit! But the Olympian team rose to the challenge and we only experienced a few weeks delay. From the date installation began Nick managed the project like clockwork, updating us throughout the build. As for the build teams, couldn’t wish for a nicer bunch of guys and they were clearly the best at what they do, providing quality workmanship every step of the way. As for the building itself, well what can I say, we basically live in it. We absolutely love having a space away from home we can take turns chilling in and we only have to go down the garden to do it. I would highly recommend Olympian without hesitation for all of your garden building needs. Lovely company/family. Thanks to you all. Tracy & Steve”
What our customers think

"We are thrilled with our new summer house!Lee Cotterill
From ordering through to delivery we were kept informed, the service has been excellent and the guys who delivered and built the summer house were great too!
We would highly recommend Olympian and are extremely happy with our new purchase."
"We have a Alderley summerhouse and a large cedar build annexe comprising of a lounge bedroom and shower room from Olympian. First class service from beginning to end. The designing of the cedar build in particular meant a careful attention to detail, with a high end finish and design changes along the way, carefully managed in a professional manner by Nick and the team.Mr and Mrs Woods
The construction took a little over a month to create the build and Ian / Connor were precise and professional, displaying expertise craftmanship throughout.
We recommend Olympian to everyone and could not be happier with our choice."
"Our summerhouse was erected last week. It completes our garden which for many years had an empty corner space awaiting the summerhouse building that now sits there. It looks truly magnificent and complements the garden perfectly. The workmanship that has gone into the making of the summerhouse is self-evident and because of careful design and planning it sits exactly where we needed it with plenty of space all around for maintenance. It feels almost like an understatement to say that we are pleased with it because it's quality is just amazing. Prior to the summerhouse, Olympian built us a garden shed and we came back for a summerhouse confident in the knowledge of your build quality."Kevin Turner
"Really delighted with the shed recently purchased from Olympian Sheds. Excellent customer service received from Nick and Hannah who dealt with our order. We’ve now had 2 sheds and a storage box. Great quality, great products, all at a competitive price. Would definitely recommend."John Nuttall
