Hi everyone, thank you for subscribing to my home renovation channel. This is my favourite video yet!

A client asked me to build them a bespoke garden room with aluminium bifold doors. They wanted to fill a specific space around 6m by 4.5m on the left hand side of their garden where an old garage used to be; for them to use as an entertaining space for them in the summer and a TV room for their children in the winter.

They were absolutely thrilled with the result. They particularly liked that we started work immediately without the need for any planning permission and we use all of the materials you would find in a normal extension (bricks aside!) without any of the mess or inconvenience of one!

This went so well we have since been asked to build 3 more via recommendations and have actually set up a separate business as we have had so many enquiries, which I have listed below –

    1. Hi Nick. Great job. Is that a warm roof? What was the makeup of the roof? Osb? Plywood? Just trying to keep mine under 2.5m so want to understand how I can do that. All help appreciated mate.

    2. Imran Iqbal It’s OSB, 60mm Insulation, Ply and then the EPDM roof itself. I’ve listed all of these on the time lapse video for your information including approximate prices
