1. How do I know if my garden is suitable to receive an extra room?

Small or big garden, the solutions adapt to the external surface and the envy of the inhabitants. Provided you respect some technical and administrative constraints. The construction, if it can be dismantled, can even be rented. Other parameters are added to have the possibility of installing an extra room in his garden. "A construction will be possible depending on the nature of the soil, that is, the type of foundation, the thickness of the concrete slab and any backfill under it, "says Damien Garlin, structural expert at Leroy Merlin.

Before considering the size of the room, it is also better to inquire in town hall. "To know which surface is possible to install, the best is togo to town hall to know the POS (land use plan) or the PLU (local plan) that define the possibilities of expansion, warns Frédéric Tabary, CEO of A cube in my garden. Below a room of 5 m2no administrative action is necessary. Between 5 and 40 m2, there is a prior declaration (DP) to realize in town hall to make sure of the possibility of the project. Beyond 40 m2, it is necessary to consult an architect."

2. What are the possible materials for an extra room in my garden?

The major constraint to installing an extra room in your garden is having weatherproof and moisture resistant construction. "The concept of A cube in my garden is to propose a kit ready to assemble, composed of four pieces in stainless steel, describes Frédéric Tabary.The cube represents four large squares of 1 m 20. It is divided in two parts: a part low with a stainless steel box to isolate and a high glass part with 33/2 glass. The frame is made of treated galvanized steel and stainless steel with the possibility of having additional treatment, depending on the installation areas. "More traditional, wood or metal are common materials for garden sheds. They can become extra rooms, as needed. More and more advanced, these small houses require good insulation to be inhabited.

3. How to best isolate an outdoor room?

Good insulation one more room in his garden is the main condition to live comfortably. In traditional shelters, the insulation is reduced with rather thin walls. On the floor and on the walls, insulating polyurethane sheets under the coating help to counter humidity. "The insulation is a real problem, confirms Damien Garlin. It all depends on the nature of the walls... We do not think about it but insulate the room from the outside with expanded polystyrene is another option. The finish can be plaster or cladding (wood, pvc, composite). "

In the case of A cube in my garden, the glass walls propose several degrees of insulation. The single glazing 33/2 and optional double glazing with two glasses between which are a plastic film or gas, very insulating. "The advantage of having a large part of the glazed wall surface is to have about 24 ° C in when it is outside 0 ° C, without turning on the heating (for a surface of approximately 9 m2) ", remarks Frédéric Tabary.

4. How can I connect a room in my garden with water and electricity?

Depending on the size of the project, connections to water and electricity can be more or less complicated. If you want to take advantage of the electricity, the design ofan electrical panel with the proper protections to safety standards is an option. The water supply for a sink or a shower, for example, can be done either from the house or on a quilting of the water supply. Wastewater can be related to the sanitation of the house by gravity or using a Sanibroyeur-type pump. Before embarking on the project, it is better to ask professionals for personalized advice.

With the trend of ready-to-install parts, other simpler and greener options are emerging. "If evacuation is not possible, we propose toadopt ecological reflexes users, in line with our approach, informs Frédéric Tabary. Ecological soap, solar panels, wood stove, water recuperator or dry toilets are solutions. "

5. What is the cost of an extra room in my garden?

In order to establish your budget as closely as possible, determine beforehand your desires and your needs. A wooden shelter can be an extra room while a turnkey module becomes a real extension of the house. The comfort is not the same. The price either. For a simple fir shelter with a thickness of 19 mm and an area of ​​about 5 m2, count 500 euros. "At a cube in my garden, the basic price is 9640 euros for a cube of 4.50 m2, says Frédéric Tabary.This price includes a stainless steel box, a galvanized steel canopy and a glass 33/2, with the assembly and transportation (about 1500/2000 euros in a classic situation).
