Lean-to style sunlounge fitted at the back of the home

January 2018 Customer of the Month Case Study – DIY Sunlounge Lean-to Conservatory, Kent

2018 has arrived – and what better way to kick-off the New Year than to buy a brand new conservatory?

It’s a fantastic way to give your home a fresh look, and to increase the value of your property.

Lots of people have already entered the planning stages for constructing a DIY conservatory – whilst many more are enjoying the benefits of a fully-built extension.

One of those is Mr David Gilmour from Sevenoaks, Kent, who installed a Conservatory Land DIY lean-to conservatory last year.

Mr Gilmour wanted a lean-to style sunlounge to fit at the back of his home.

And we were happy to help. There were some very specific requirements that needed to be met – but we were more than up for the challenge.

For example, there were some height restrictions – so we needed to ensure the measurements were 100% accurate.

There was also an existing side-wall that needed to be taken into account when drawing up the initial plans.

When we had drawn these up – we presented our ideas to Mr Gilmour, which looked as follows:

Once we confirmed he was happy, we began producing all the different conservatory components.

The Installation Process

Mr Gilmour decided to complete the installation himself.

He called our technical experts a couple of times to clarify a few things – but otherwise has no issues building his extension.

Customer Testimonial

Mr Gilmour said: “I bought my conservatory as a DIY project. I must admit it was a bit daunting when all the packages arrived.”

“But not to worry, as all the parts were numbered as to where they were to fit. After reading the instructions I set about construction which turned out to be surprisingly simple.”
