Our October customer of the month writes to us from Waterlooville, Hampshire about his brand new Edwardian conservatory. Having just bought a quaint, semi-detached home with a lovely garden, Mr Tenchev was keen to expand his new space with a sun-soaked room from which he could enjoy his garden, all-year-round.
Most importantly for Mr Tenchev was finding a cost-effective solution for the additional space he needed. Having assessed his options and spoken to our helpful team at Conservatory Land, he decided that a conservatory was the way to go. A modern, airy room at a reasonable price was exactly what he was looking for to extend his brand new home.
Our expert team at Conservatory Land talked Mr Tenchev through his options, from lean-to and Victorian styles to orangeries and gable-front conservatories. With so many options to choose from, finding a style that would best suit Mr Tenchev’s current surroundings and style preferences was easy. Timeless and elegant, Mr Tenchev opted for an Edwardian conservatory. Offering a sleek and spacious additional room at a reasonable price, he was happy that an Edwardian conservatory would look great against the brickwork of his new home. So with that decided, it was time to get the build underway…
Building the Edwardian Conservatory
First up, it was time to lay the foundations. As the ground in Mr Tenchev’s new garden sloped slightly away from his house, our experts at Conservatory Land needed to manufacture his ConservaBase (an all-in-one steel conservatory base, floor and wall system) to accommodate this. By supplying this bespoke steel base, they were able to avoid the need to build up a concrete base — a step that would have been costly and time-consuming. Mr Tenchev required a cost-effective solution for his conservatory build, so he was delighted we were able to manage the problem at a reasonable cost. What’s more, making a bespoke base took no time at all thanks to the expertise of our team — we’ve been doing this a while, after all!
Once the steel base was signed, sealed, and delivered, we fitted the ConservaBase walls with Old Millhouse 7420 OM Brick and Light Grey Mortar. Standing atop a few easy-to-install concrete pads, a ConservaBase is the strongest steel base you can get for a DIY conservatory. With each steel section fully-welded, Mr Tenchev’s conservatory base was solid and would not flex when he walked on it. But even better than that, he was delighted that his brand new base came with a 10-year guarantee — another huge benefit of using Conservatory Land for his project!
Once the custom foundations and Conservabase were laid, it was time to build the conservatory walls. In keeping with the brickwork of his current home, Mr Tenchev opted for a gorgeous red-brick for his conservatory walls. The similar brickwork meant his brand new Edwardian conservatory felt like a natural extension of his new home, and fit in perfectly with the surroundings. Erected in no time at all, Mr Tenchev’s conservatory was really starting to take shape!
For the conservatory windows, Mr Tenchev selected standard glass. The elegant window frame was cut in white PVCu and was chosen to match the existing windows in his home. Mr Tenchev wanted a modern, airy space that would allow him to enjoy the view of his garden in all weathers, so large and panoramic windows were a must! Luckily, all of our conservatories are fully bespoke, so Mr Tenchev was able to build a space that was simply perfect for his requirements. He opted for large windows that would allow plenty of sunlight into his conservatory, giving him a bright and spacious room for all of his family to enjoy.
For the roof, he opted for blue self-cleaning, solar-control glass. Conservatory Land uses only the very best PVCu profiles, so Mr Tenchev knew he was getting the highest quality for his money. And by reflecting and filtering the sun’s rays, the solar-control glass of his conservatory roof would allow daylight into the room without any uncomfortable visual glare. This meant he would be able to enjoy his conservatory all year round! The self-cleaning glass would also stay cleaner for longer than standard glass, so the upkeep of his brand new space would be super simple.
Finally, our Conservatory Land experts fitted double doors with chrome handles to the side of Mr Tenchev’s conservatory. These gorgeous double doors were perfect for opening up during the summer months to enjoy the garden, and allowed for a beautiful full-length view of their outside space throughout the year. Mr Tenchev was delighted with how his conservatory looked, it immediately felt as though it was meant to be there!
