TIMBER CONSERVATORIES & ORANGERIES
A vital additional room for your house, a living room in the garden, a place to work or to entertain or simply a room with a view. Whatever the reason for wanting one, we can design, supply and install a conservatory or orangery to suit your home. Traditional Victorian designs or sleek modern lines, they are all made from high-quality engineered hardwood timber, fully finished with very durable micro-porous paints in the colour of your choice and double-glazed with the highest specification sealed units for optimum year-round performance.
Whatever design you have in mind, big or small, lean-to or stand-alone, we can help you realise your ideas, adding a tremendous asset to your home.
Orangery or Conservatory?
An orangery has a flat roof with one or more glass 'lantern' roof lights above it which flood the area with natural light. Inside there is a perimeter ceiling usually in plaster into which lighting (and audio speakers) can be installed. The windows and doors can be made as a continuous run or have brick- or stone pillars in-between. Bridging the gap between the roof and the windows is either a brick or stone parapet, or timber facia boards.
A conservatory can have full-height frames or a low wall onto which the frames are positioned. French doors to the side and or the end provide easy access into the garden. The glass roof is supported by hardwood rafters colour-matched to the windows and door and can incorporate roof vents for optimal temperature control. Externally we can keep the roof-line simple and clean so that the eye is drawn to the windows and doors, or we can add decorative flourishes such as crestings along the ridge and finials at the ends.
The design of an orangery or conservatory is a function of the way in which he room will be used, the size needed, influences from the existing house and garden and the preferences of the customer. The specification process is often therefore an iterative one with two or more face-to-face discussions before we reach a final design.
