Customers Simon and Leigh live in a lovely little cottage which they adore. They are a very family orientated couple and relish spending time and socialising with their family. “Unfortunately, we just did not have the extra room to get together so we began to look for something that would solve the problem,” explained Simon. “An extension was out of the question as the building is listed, but we have a generous garden and so looked at making use of the extra space.”

Simon paid a visit to his local Johnsons Display Village, having passed it on his commute to work one day and having been a customer of the garden centre where the village is based. “I was so impressed with the difference in build quality against those I had already seen that Johnsons was the obvious choice,” he said.
Simon and Leigh ordered a 4.2m x 3.2m Garda with insulated roof and laminated flooring and Johnsons’ fitting team installed the building in under two days (construction was included in the price). From that point on Simon put in extra decking to the front of the building and ran in electrics and wi-fi facilities, being in the trade himself.

The Garden Room now built complete with decking, Leigh set about decorating the interior, first painting a feature wall and then furnishing with the many artefacts collected by her late mother. “As we continued the space evolved and expanded to include a television, gaming console, tea and coffee facilities, shelving and a top of the range sofa bed!” Leigh explained.
“We have everything we need,” said Leigh. “An extra space to accommodate our family, guests and so much more. We also use it as a place to exercise, watch the footy, and chillout.” Leigh wanted something that could be used all year round and taking the option of insulated roofing certainly achieved that. “It’s so warm and cosy, with the snow on the ground snuggled up under the duvet watching a film in the winter,” she said.

A keen reader, Leigh is a member of a local book reading club and now, with the addition of a garden room has the added benefit of being able to host a meeting each month. “The girls cannot wait to come over,” she said. “They love the building; we sit and discuss our latest novel with the doors wide open and the birds singing in the background…. bliss, a real oasis!!”
We at Johnsons were so impressed with what they have achieved that they won our coveted Cabin of the Year Award, winning a voucher for £500!
