Garden Gym in Bramhall
8 November 2021
We can all think of a million excuses for not going to the gym but that’s difficult when it’s at the bottom of your garden!
And that was our clients’ reason for wanting a Contemporary Garden Room. The whole family were wasting money on expensive monthly membership of the local gym that they just weren’t using. If they had their own purpose built gym they wouldn’t have any excuses!
Our customers came to Olympian Garden Buildings armed with details of the gym equipment they intended to have and we took it from there, planning around those dimensions to ensure we designed a home gym fit for purpose.
The area designated by our customers was an unused and overgrown area of their huge garden and when we went on the initial site meeting for this project, it was hard to visualise how the end product would look.
We devised a design for an 7m x 4m room with large 3m wide sliding doors and an extra height ceiling to ensure a bright and spacious room that you’d enjoy spending time in.
Construction would be straightforward as unlike competitor buildings, our superior flooring framework wouldn’t require re-enforcing to withstand heavy-duty gym equipment.
Working with our long-standing electrical contractor, we allowed for an air conditioning system for perfect climate control and dimable spot lighting for ambiance, alongside plentiful electric sockets. We also installed internet and multimedia connections to enable full wifi capability and links to the home multimedia system.
Plans were in place to landscape the entire garden and first up was the mammoth task of clearing the trees and bushes to establish the area for the garden gym.
Our experienced team constructed and installed the building over a 3-week period which included the electrical installation, plastering of walls and fitting flooring and skirting, and were ready to hand over to the landscape gardeners to finish the project.
We were delighted when we received photos of the garden once complete, it really is a spectacular transformation. The high grade cedar cladding makes a really striking feature at the end of the garden and will stand the test of time.
And the best part is the whole family now use their own private gym on a daily basis.
What our customers think
"The team at Olympian Garden Buildings recently installed a 7x14ft Apex Workshop for us. I would not hesitate to recommend them to friends and family. We are very pleased with our workshop, it is solid and well made and is perfect for what we need. The team in the office were great at answering all of our questions (thank you Nick and Hannah!) and we received great advice on the need for a base and aftercare. The workshop went up in no time and the installation team were friendly and did a great job. Many thanks Olympian!"Vicky H
"So very delighted with our gazebo, it has really transformed our garden and our dog approves too!! Olympian were a pleasure to deal with throughout the ordering, building and after sales service. Highly recommend."Marian Pusey
"Having had a number of quotes, I decided to order my 20'x8' timber workshop from Olympian Garden Buildings. I'm really pleased that I did. It wasn't the cheapest quote I had but the specification was higher and taking everything into account, it represented the best value for money. The workshop is very solid and well constructed and the quality of service which I received was excellent from start to finish. There was no pressure from the sales staff and they spent time explaining the various options which were available. I was kept informed throughout the ordering process and the arrangements for delivering the workshop were very efficient. "Mick Giannasi
"We have just had a 5m x 3m Garden office built on site by Olympian Garden Buildings and the whole job, from design to build was done very professionally and with minimum fuss and inconvenience. The team of craftsmen; builders, plasterers, electricians worked seamlessly to complete the project on time and the organisation behind the scenes was impressive. Nick was always available to assist with help and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this company to others thinking of having an office built in the garden"Stephen Jackson
