Love Your GardenWith Alan Titchmarsh and Sanctum Garden Studios
So excited to have made our TV debut on ITV’s Love Your Garden with Alan Titchmarsh on Tuesday evening.
The Sanctum team were featured installing a 2.4m x 2.4m Contemporary Studio with EPDM rubber cubed roof finished with a sedum ‘green living roof’.
After being approached by the Series Producer back in April, we were asked to be involved in a garden created for a well-deserved Durham family. The Hunters recently faced tragedy when father Philip sadly passed away aged 40. Philip and his wife Sam had great plans to get the garden beautiful especially for their eldest son Ethan who is profoundly deaf and struggles to go to local spaces independently. The challenge was to create a safe space where they could frame their beautiful view. The show producers felt that one of our smaller Contemporary Studios would fit perfectly in the available space. They wanted lots of glass in the front and back so that Ethan, Sam and his younger brother Joshua could take in the fantastic views of the nature reserve at the back of the garden.
The studio was built in just two days and, as with all of our studios, come with fully insulated walls floors and roof panels, along with housing standard double glazing, meaning the family will be able to enjoy using their garden room comfortably all year round. They also have a totally maintenance free EPDM roof membrane and are clad in beautiful Western Red Cedar, both these materials have a lifespan of over 60 years in the UK climate. This Studio was topped off with a fantastic Sedum ‘living roof’. The interior was finished with white walls and an oak laminate floor along with electric socket points and low energy LED lighting.
The family were overjoyed with their finished garden and we know they will make fantastic use of their garden room.
