Drama on the Cliff Edge - A Garden Office Update

Hello Extrarooms bloggers! We’re back again with a garden office update! The big story we’ve got for you today about a recent garden studio installation in Ugborough, Devon! We’ve been waiting for this one for quite a bit of time so please excuse our (potentially unfounded) enthusiasm to report back!

“Huge Clanger dropped on sound-proofed studio”

About 10 years ago we had a customer who wanted a soundproofed drum practice room. They asked whether they should have one of our garden offices made to their design, but then have it soundproofed by a specialist soundproofing company, or whether we could build it from scratch to a soundproof specification they would give us.

Extra Versatility

Today we'd like to tell you a little story to illustrate our Extra Versatility! A few months back we met a potential customer at our stand at the N.E.C We shook on a deal to buy the show building once the exhibition had finished, but then we didn't hear anything for a couple of months.

Anglesey Update!

 

Hello everyone. We promised in our last post that we would share some pictures of the installation of the large garden building we installed a couple of weeks ago in a beautiful holiday home in Anglesey!

Well here you are...(and try to ignore the big thumb in the way of the bottom one - we might be good at garden rooms but we're no David Bailey that's for sure!)

Garden Office June Update

 

Hello all Extrarooms readers! Once again we are back with a garden office update and what a few weeks it has been since we last spoke.

 

In our last post we showed you a sneaky peak of the large garden building that was destined for a lovely corner in a holiday home in Anglesey and we can now report that it is settled in its new home. Unlike most installations this one took a little longer at 2.5 days. The primary reason for this being that the owners had limited knowledge of local builders because it was to be installed in their holiday home garden. Consequently, the Extrarooms team had to travel up a day ahead to level the pitch ground and lay foundations. Nevertheless, the garden building installation went very well and the owners are extremely happy with the finished product. Watch this space for some photos of the finished product!

 

Also, talking of testimonials... we received this glowing feedback from a very happy client last week! Here’s what he said (and some photos to go along with it):

"Just a short note to say how pleased I am with my garden office.  At last I have been able to complete the finishing touches having managed to find a good electrician.  As the office is now fully wired up I thought you might like to see what it looks like illuminated at night.  If you want to use any of the enclosed photos for promotion/publicity purposes please feel free to do so. I'm also happy to provide a written testimonial if ever one is required for a prospective client in this neck of the woods.

Once again, many thanks for a job well done.

R. Arber"

The next big project that we have been commissioned for is a large double-pitched soundproofed music room. Whenever a soundproofed room is commissioned at Extratrooms we all get pretty excited – even if that is a bit sad. We haven’t got an official trophy but as soundproofing goes, we are the experts (even if we do say so ourselves). From musicians and composers to sound technicians and sound engineers, we have built great quality soundproofed rooms with a 100% customer satisfaction.

As well as our success rate, we base this self-proclaimed title on the fact that we are the only garden office company who can block out decibel levels up to 60 and we’re so confident of this claim that we are also the only company who have a money back guarantee if we cannot achieve the level of soundproofing assured.

In fact, our commitment to soundproofing has led us to build a testing room at the Extrarooms workshop. Here you can bring in a recording of the music/noise you plan on making in your soundproofed room and test any one of our 3 levels of soundproofing specification to see which you need:

  1. Single skin specification – soundproofed up to 30 decibels
  2. Enhanced single skin specification – soundproofed up to 40 decibels
  3. Double skin specification – soundproofed up to 60 decibels

 

Anyway, enough of us blowing our own trumpet (not that anyone would hear it if we were blowing it in one of our soundproofed music rooms – eesh!?). Have a look at some pictures of this new soundproofed room in the workshop…

Unfortunately, most of the soundproofing qualities come into play as we are installing a room like this so you will have to look out for the next Extrarooms blog post for how we got on!
