Gym and Bike Workshop in Bitterne

Our customer first got in touch and asked if we could replace their old garage for a large gym and bike workshop based in Bitterne. David and Sophie are very keen cyclists and like to train at home when possible.

Internally, David was very keen to keep it as one long room with the workshop across one end and all the training equipment at the other end with the natural light of the bifold and the comfort of the air-conditioning. We painted the room internally as a two tone show the two parts of the room. 

Originally David and Sophie wanted to have the building completely cladded in real wood, but we asked them to trust us and suggested breaking it up with a mixture of both Anthracite James Hardie plank and Thermally Modified Radiata Pine cladding. The Hardie plank in Anthracite matched the colour of the windows, doors, fascia and soffits and the Thermally Modified Radiata Pine was fitted as a detail around the doors and windows to break up the long room and provide a unique design.

Wow! Thank you so much for designing and building us the home gym and bike workshop of our dreams. From first visit to final completion, we have been consistently impressed by Matt and the whole HGR team inc Tom, Alfie, and Mick. You were a pleasure to have working at our home, cheerful, helpful, and always taking care to keep the site neat and tidy. They've helped come up with some solutions that we wouldn't have thought of. The finished room looks amazing and will help us take our training to the next level (sadly not quite turning pro, but the dream lives on!) We would definitely recommend Hampshire Garden Rooms to anyone, we couldn’t be happier with our next-level garden upgrade. ...Read more
