Wooden Cabin Extension,


Scandinavian relaxation in the North West of England

  • Sector: Residential
  • Need: Enable Weather Protection for Garden Cabin
  • Solution: 3 x Eliminate® PVC Roller Blinds
  • Outcome: Rain proof and heat-sealed entertaining year round

The owner of this property had one clear purpose in mind – create a truly luxurious bar and hot tub wooden cabin for family and friends to enjoy year round. But a traditional door and window solution would separate the cabin from the garden, and also prove uncomfortable in the warm Summer months. So we had an ideal solution.

We have decades of experience installing external roller blinds of all shapes, sizes and materials, so from the survey we knew that we’d be able to provide a great product. The cabin required the blinds to be sealed when down to retain heat and cut out drafts or rain splashes. And of course, they’d need to be remote operated so they could be sent up or down without leaving the hot tub!

We designed and manufactured the blinds at our factory in Bolton, using the same industry-leading Somfy motors that we use in all our motorised products. The material was a high-performance, high-durability PVC fabric, heat welded to avoid stitches. Our expertise with these products meant the installation went smoothly and was completed in a few hours.

The blinds offer exactly the protection from the elements that the owners were looking for – great for keeping out those drafts and rain drops – but offer the flexibility of being completely retracted in Summer. The cabin was now an oasis of relaxation in almost any weather, and when the rain starts the fun doesn’t stop.

We don’t just find the solution. We create it.

“The W-Series has definitely exceeded our expectations. It’s everything you’d want from a conservatory and living extension, but on sunny days it’s like having an al fresco dining room! It’s been a real wow factor for all our friends and visitors.”

Throughout the design and installation process, James Robertshaw and their partners have been fantastic to work with. We get lots of comments from visitors about how good the blinds look and when they’re rolled away they are so discreet you wouldn’t even know they are there. Which is great for match days!

“The P-Series umbrellas have been amazing for us. We’ve increased turnover 300% since they were installed!”
