Our March Customers of the Month are Mr Adam Readman and Miss Selina Thaugally from Hastings, East Sussex, who installed a new Edwardian conservatory at the back of their semi-detached house. Because they had a large garden, the couple was eager to expand their living space. They wanted to create a bright, light-filled room that brought the outdoors inside and could be used for a variety of purposes. So they approached ConservatoryLand.
Our team’s expert advice and ideas gave the couple confidence that we provided the perfect end-to-end solution.
Watch Adam’s video testimonial below to learn more about the couple’s experience with ConservatoryLand.
Keen to maximise their available space, they opted for an Edwardian conservatory. Stylish and elegant, Edwardian conservatories add light, space and comfort to any type of property. And with sleek lines and a pitched roof, this style amplifies the amount of light entering the area.
Miss Thaugally and Mr Readman chose to use our network of Approved Installers to help with the installation. After the couple approved the design and decided on their preferred customisation options, we delivered their made-to-measure conservatory direct to their door. It was then time for the installers to get started.

Building Miss Thaugally & Mr Readman’s Edwardian conservatory
Miss Thaugally and Mr Readman opted for our ConservaBase system for a smooth and speedy build. This all-in-one base, floor and wall system can be installed by either a DIYer or a professional. Each ConservaBase is custom-made to meet the conservatory’s exact size and shape, ensuring a perfect fit.
The installer began by preparing the area for the foundations, before fitting the concrete pads. And thanks to our modern manufacturing methods, there’s no need to spend hours assembling fiddly parts or digging up heaps of soil.
With the concrete pads in place, the installer constructed the steel base then fitted insulation sheets to ensure the foundations are safe, solid and moisture-resistant. Plus, installation is much faster than a traditional build because every piece easily fits together.
Next, it was time to build the walls. The installer started with a dwarf brick wall around the base of the conservatory that helps the couple’s new space feel like a natural extension of the rest of their home. The installer then moved on to constructing the white uPVC frames.
At ConservatoryLand, we manufacture all our frames from the latest fully-sculptured profiles. Thanks to our high-quality materials and expert manufacturing techniques, they’re designed to withstand the elements.
Miss Thaugally and Mr Readman chose double doors on both sides of their conservatory to create an airy feel. They’ll be able to open up their space whenever they want to enjoy their garden.
Once the frames were installed, it was time to get started on the roof. The project required precise installation because the property was clad in tiles where the new conservatory roof needed to attach. Having assured the couple that they had the right solution, the installers removed, trimmed and replaced the tiles to achieve a seamless and watertight finish.
Miss Thaugally and Mr Readman opted for our blue self-cleaning, solar control glass for the roof because it requires very little maintenance. Not only will their conservatory be cleaner for longer, but the solar control glass will reduce heat build-up, allowing the couple to enjoy a pleasant and comfortable space — whatever the weather.
Their new Edwardian conservatory will benefit from lots of natural light thanks to the sleek pitched roof. And this style has given them a spacious, sun-filled room that is modern and stylish that they’ll be able to enjoy all year round.
The couple’s functional yet elegant conservatory was ready to use in just a few days. They were delighted with their extension, which provided the extra space they needed. They transformed it into the multi-purpose room they’d envisioned by adding a sofa and gym equipment. What’s more, by choosing ConservatoryLand, they saved a significant amount of money.
