Our customer of the month for February purchased a two-sided lean-to conservatory, which was designed bespoke for them, adding extra space to the rear of their bungalow.
The popular DIY lean-to style is unique in the way it looks as if it is leaning against your home, and like all of our conservatories can be made to measure based on your requirements.
With the choice of either a dwarf wall or full height you have the scope to make the extensions exactly how you want it.
In this instance, Mr Jones wanted an extension which fit perfectly to his bungalow, underneath the low Soffit and Fascia which surrounded the roof of his home.
The customer also wanted to utilise the existing wall of their bungalow, meaning the build needed to be two-sided instead of the usual three.
As you can see from the pictures, we were able to provide just that, and Mr Jones is very happy with the end result.
The Technical Specifications
As mentioned, Mr Jones chose the lean to conservatory style.
The dimensions where bespoke to their requirements, and as you will see from the CAD designs shared, the conservatory is rectangular in shape (3700mm x 2580mm) creating ample space to relax in.

|Conservatory style||Lean To|

The Jones family opted for a dwarf wall which matched the brick colour of the property, helping the conservatory to flow from their home.
They also chose a 4 Pane Bi Fold Door, which further optimised the space available.
The sliding feature really helps to bring the outdoors in. We are confident they will be putting these to great use in the warmer months.
From this project alone, it is clear to see that our DIY conservatories really do come in all shapes and sizes.
This customer project is also the perfect example of how we work with our customers from start to finish to ensure you are fully satisfied with the end product.
DIY Lean To Extension Kit Installation Process
When it came to planning the extension, there were certain challenges which had to be overcome in order to ensure the build was to the customer’s requirements.
As mentioned, the conservatory dimensions had to account for the low Soffit and Fascia which surrounded the property.
This meant the conservatory dimensions needed to be made to exact measurements.
Also, in order to maximise the space, the Jones family requested the conservatory fit perfectly against the existing wall.
You will see from the images shared, that we were able to overcome the challenges faced and produce a high quality, made-to measure extension.
When it came to building the DIY conservatory, the customer chose to use one of our approved installers to carry out the work for them. This is often a preferred method if a customer is short on time.
So, if you are considering purchasing one of our conservatories, it’s definitely worth considering our network of conservatory installers.
Approved by us, you can be confident that your conservatory will be built to a high standard.
When the lean-to conservatory was finished, Mr Jones took the time to review the service received from us, and we were delighted to hear how pleased he was with the finished product.
He shared the following about his experience…
Initially I saw ConservatoryLand advertising in a national newspaper, so I gave them a call to get an idea of price. Overall, ConservatoryLand came across as a very professional company, and I could not fault them at any stage of the process up to delivery. We used an Approved Installer who was also very proficient. I am very pleased with the finished conservatory, meets all my expectations and amazed at the speed of installation.
