The Wentworth Lytham is a versatile and attractive garden office with a contemporary twist.
With a maximum height of 2.5 metres, the Lytham conforms to most UK planning guidelines, although you are best advised to check with your local council if there are any other restrictions.
The Lytham has two casement double glazed windows and a double glazed single door as standard, all with toughened, low 'E' glass.
Security locks are standard on all doors and lockable windows and there is a 'no-cost' option of either PVCu or timber joinery for windows and doors
As standard, the Lytham has 15mm painted redwood shiplap tongue and groove cladding. The shiplap walls are then strengthened with 9mm OSB3 boarding and lined with Dupont Tyvek breather membrane. The walls are constructed using 44mm x 100mm C16 structural timber. The cavity is then filled with 80mm foil backed insulation board. Internally, the walls are lined with 9mm painted MDF panels (plain).
Heavy-duty, moisture-resistant 18mm P5 chipboard flooring board is fixed to 44mm x 100mm C16 structural timber floor joists with 80mm foil backed insulation board fitted between them. Sandwiched between the floor boards and joists is 1000mm gauge damp-proof membrane - the membrane is also under the side walls to prevent damp ingress. Treated timber battens fixed to the floor joists creates a 25mm cavity and allows an airflow under the entire building.
As standard, the Lytham has an EPDM rubber membrane (which is glued on) covering the pent roof. The EPDM gives a much neater appearance whilst extending the life of your building considerably. The natural colour of the EPDM membrane is black. Dupont Tyvek breather membrane is sandwiched between the 18mm OSB3 roof boards and the 44mm x 100mm C16 structural timber roof joists. 80mm foil backed insulation fills the cavity between the joists and matchboard lining is placed on the inside.
As standard, buildings are painted with a comprehensive paint system to protect and decorate the exterior shiplap cladding. The paint system comprises of an initial undercoat and two top coats of your chosen colour. Tongue and groove boards are pre-sprayed prior to fixing to prevent shrinkage marks. A wide selection of colours are available to suit and in most cases we can match any colour you require, as long as you have the RAL colour code. Various cladding upgrades are available at an additional cost.
You can choose between timber joinery or PVCu double glazed units with the Lytham garden office. Both have 4mm toughened, low 'E' glass. All opening windows are fitted with lockable key catches. All doors are fitted with a 5 lever mortice lock. Different designs come with a specific number of doors and windows, however, extra can be added to suit different requirements. Positioning of doors and windows is determined by you.
All Wentworth garden rooms are backed up with a 10 year timber warranty. This warranty is subject to all exterior paintwork being maintained in line with the manufacturers' recommendations. We leave all of our customers with a tin of paint to help preserve their building. All other workmanship and materials are guaranteed for a twelve month period, from date of installation. This guarantee does not affect your statutory rights.
This is a 14ft wide x 8ft deep Wentworth Lytham on display at our centre in Staines.
Constructed in 15mm Redwood cladding, the building has had an optional painted finish applied - complimenting the white PVCu windows and doors. There is a no cost option of either PVCu or timber joinery for windows and doors.
The Lytham has whole host of cladding options, window options and interior finishes - making the Lytham completely customisable to suit your needs.
All Lythams have an EPDM covered flat roof as standard, with a height that is under 2.50m so that planning permission is only needed in special circumstances.
The Lytham has many cladding options available. Here the customer has opted for the Vertical Cedar cladding option. This combined with bi-fold doors and a roof overhang gives a very contemporary look and feel to this office.
If you look closely, you can see cables hanging from the underside of the overhang. These are awaiting to be connected to spotlights, which are an optional extra.
Here the customer has opted to change the windows for the 2000mm high double and triple pane glazing. Giving uninterrupted views of their wonderful garden!
Also the customer has upgraded their exterior cladding from the standard 15mm painted shiplap redwood to the 19mm painted overlap redwood cladding.
The Lytham has many optional extras so you can customise your building to your requirements.
Note the customer here has added an additional set of double doors and also included a partition wall in the centre. Also, the windows have been changed to glass to ground double glazed units - making a complete glazed front.

All of our Wentworth Garden Offices will be delivered and installed (where applicable) by our skilled team of fitters - ensuring that your garden office arrives in perfect condition and it is assembled to the highest standard.
Please be aware that you will need to provide a good, strong and level base constructed from either slabs or concrete. This will need to be completed prior to our delivery date, ensuring that it is set and strong enough for that building to sit on.
We will always confirm these details with you at point of order and we can provide you with base plans so that no detail is left out - ensuring that your garden office will be both delivered and installed without any inconvenience.
As with all of our garden buildings, we like to provide our customers with a suitable delivery time. We always give good notice of our arrival date, allowing you to be sure it is the right time for you. We always appreciate any helpful information regarding access to your pre-prepared base area and any details you may need to share with us about reaching you - so that the delivery process can run as smoothly as possible.
Our delivery times can vary from season to season, but typically you should expect to receive your building around 4-6 weeks from point of order. All of our buildings are made to order, so during the busy spring to summer seasons this may increase to 6-8 weeks - dependant on the building that you purchase.
