GOOD THINGS COME IN SMALL OAK PACKAGES
Throughout the centuries, certain rooms in homes have been designed as productive living areas, offering different benefits in different seasons. A well-designed timber sunroom will always provide a relaxing living area, but with a little more thought can be utilised for many other uses: from providing a great space to grow food plants to inspirational office space.
To realise the full benefits of your sunroom addition, our designs incorporate the basic elements of passive solar planning: orientation, glazing, thermal mass, insulation and ventilation. By applying our principles, you will be able to keep this living space at a comfortable temperature by using natural systems.
We tend to think of the sunroom as the little brother of the other GreenRoom - a small scale oak extension, often used in passive building design as a further technique for heating and lighting the main home. Almost invariably, our GreenRooms are designed to take advantage of a scenic view, collecting sunlight for warmth and heat for the rest of the home. A sunroom by definition is a one-storey extension where the glazing covers in excess of 40 percent of the gross area of the exterior walls and roof. Whatever your reason for creating this space, you can be sure that your oak extension will be a totally unique feature.
