3. Conservatory Dwarf Wall and Cills
Small Dwarf Wall and Conservatory Base.
This is the traditional base and wall structure for a conservatory. It is generally built in materials such as facing brickwork matches the existing house. This type of wall is normally positioned between 600mm to 900mm high from the inside finished floor level of the new conservatory and provides the home owner with a good view of the garden. This type of wall is often used as short radiators can be positioned below the windows at a position in the conservatory that is furthest away from the main house.
¾ Height Wall Conservatory
This is where a 1700mm high wall and 400mm fanlight windows form the side wall of a conservatory. The side fanlight windows sit between the conservatory roof and the wall structure. This option is usually used with obscure glazed glass for privacy from a neighbour, but still allowing light into the conservatory. This type of wall is ideal for positioning flat screen TVs, pictures and radiators.
Full height Conservatory Side wall or Existing wall Conservatory.
This is a full height (2100mm) wall structure formed from either brickwork, panelled brickwork, block or render and normally matches in with the existing cladding on the main house. If a gap is left (150mm) between the neighbours boundary and the new conservatory then guttering cab be provided to the full height wall, if a gap is not provided then a box gutter is normally provided to keep the roof guttering on the homeowners land. The full height conservatory side wall provides the optimal amount of privacy as no glazing or light is provided through the wall.
