With a new year comes a new series of outstanding customer projects to look forward to.
And, if our January customer of the month is anything to go by – it’s going to be another year to remember.
To kick us off, we’re in the North London suburbs of Barnet, Hertfordshire – where we’ll be focusing on another new conservatory assembled by one of ConservatoryLand’s recommended installers.
Mrs Chakal couldn’t be any more thrilled with her brand new made to measure, spacious lean to conservatory, which will be used as an exercise area.
As you can see, the conservatory was installed on to the back of the house against a rear wall and adjoining corner – which made for a complicated roof installation.
Nevertheless, the conservatory was manufactured to perfection to ensure a perfect fit – making the approved installer’s job as smooth as possible.
The Project Technical Specifications
|Conservatory style||Lean To Conservatory|
|Dimensions||3050mm x 3000mm (made to measure to customers requirements)|
|Glazing||Standard glass in the windows. Clear Polycarbonate|
|Base type||ConservaBase with PVCu Skirt|
|Colour||White PVCu, 25mm Polycarbonate, White handles|
As far as the customer’s requirements were concerned, Mrs Chakal wanted a conservatory that would make the most of her outdoor space.
Mrs Chakal wanted to make the most of her space, so the lean to was carefully designed to go past her existing extension and wrap around back towards her house.
This would provide the opportunity for an outside access door – but would also mean that the lean to roof would need to be carefully modified to suit the new structure and the exterior of the house itself.
During the planning and purchase stage, ConservatoryLand was able to provide Mrs Chakal with a basic CAD design to demonstrate what the new conservatory would look like.
This included the outdoor access point where a 50mm extender would be added in order to enable the door to open out from the rear wall at a 90 degree angle.
The design also took into account the design specifications including the white PVCu frames and bespoke roof all made to measure to the exact dimensions required.
The parts would then be delivered to Mrs Chakal’s address ready for the approved installer recommended by ConservatoryLand to start the assembly.
Lean To Conservatory Installation Process
Along with the bespoke parts for the frame and roof, Mrs Chakal’s new conservatory would be built with a ConservaBase to support the structure with an accompanying white PVCu skirt to match.
The ConservaBase is the first part of the installation when building a conservatory – and in order to fix this, the approved installer would need to lay the foundations at the rear of the property.
The conservatory would be raised slightly off the ground, and with the strong and sturdy ConservaBase in place – the PVCu frames would be fully supported as the build commenced.
Mrs Chakal opted for standard glass in the windows and clear polycarbonate panels for the roof.
These would be carefully manufactured to meet the required dimensions of the build and angled projection of the lean-to roof as shown below.
With the structure in place, the finishing touches could be added to the access door. As the purpose of the conservatory is for exercise – the design catered for the fact that they would not require access from directly inside the house.
Mrs Chakal was delighted with the finished article.
“The service I received for the drawings of the conservatories was great. They redrafted until I was very happy before sending it to production. They also recommended a builder who did an excellent job. I am very happy and would definitely recommend.”
Mrs Chakal can now start the exciting process of fitting out her new conservatory with the exercise equipment to make this a home gym to be truly proud of.
It doesn’t matter whether you’re setting up an exercise area, an extended living space or for any other purpose – our DIY conservatories are useful additions to any home.
