An early Christmas present for your kids

by anonymous | Dec 3, 2013 | Blog, Residential

Rooms have been tidied, lists made and fridges filled to bursting. The countdown has officially begun…to the kids coming home for the holidays!

It’s always great to have the family together, but after time living apart having everybody under one roof again can cause tension and overcrowding – especially over the Christmas period. 

A Garden Escape offers a space where teenagers can continue the freedom and privacy they enjoy at university, while close enough to the family home to spend quality time together.

After living independently it can be difficult to re-adjust to the routines of family life but a garden room is a great compromise, providing growing children with a unique space they can make their own. It also offers an ideal study space beyond the distractions of the family home for students working on exams or essays, since the views of its natural location can improve their motivation and concentration. As The Booths found, their teenagers’ garden clubhouse provides them with privacy and freedom to grow, without having to leave the family home.

Of course your garden room needn’t be used exclusively as a teenage den. After they return to university, a flexible garden building can serve as an additional living space or bedroom for guests coming to stay. Fully insulated and equipped with electricity, bathroom suites and instant hot water, a garden room offers friends and family a flexible and inviting space surrounded by the natural scenery of your garden.

All our builds are eco-friendly from top to bottom and with the option of including sun pipes and living sedum roofs, your Garden Escape can be budget-friendly too. With minimal energy usage and bills your family can spend time enjoying the luxury of your garden room this winter without worrying about managing costs.  

If you’re worried about overcrowding this Christmas and are looking to create a luxury Garden Escape of your own, please contact us for further details or to arrange a free consultation.
