Farmhouse Sun Room

The Brief

For this project we were commissioned to:

  • Design and construct a fully double glazed timber framed sunroom to the front aspect of a traditional farmhouse.
  • Obtain Planning and Building Control approval from the local authorities.

Project schedule

After initial discussions with the client, we produced some  3D visualisation drawings for their consideration and final approval.


On receipt of all the necessary Local Authorities Approvals construction began in earnest.

The clients had a foundation laid by a specialist contractor, whilst we milled the trees and manufactured the frame members at our premises.  This particular frame made use of the Timberlinx connector system for which are the approved UK Agent.

Once the final design and costings were approved we produced a full set formal architectural drawings and specifications necessary to obtain both Planning and Building Control approvals from the Local Authorities on behalf of the client

The construction phase then began after the new foundation slab was installed to our specification.

Interesting design feature as a result of avoiding the upstairs window immediately above the sun room ridge.  We specified the use of Structurally Insulated Panels for this project to achieve a high level of insulation and speed of construction.
