Yes. Our garden rooms offer excellent levels of insulation and come with heating as standard. You’ll find your garden room is cosy in the winter and cool in the summer.
We do offer certain customisations, but we do NOT make bespoke buildings. If you have something specific in mind, please get in touch and at the very least we maybe able to offer some advice
No. Our garden offices do not comply with building regulations and they are not suitable to be used as accommodation. Living inside your garden office will invalidate your guarantee.
Although it is possible in theory, we do not recommend this, get in touch to find out more
Your garden room should last a lifetime. All garden offices come with a 10-year structural guarantee. However, because we use the highest quality materials, including a leak-proof EDPM roof, your garden room could last as long as 30 years.
Our buildings do NOT come with plumbing installed. Though this may be done retrospectively once your garden room is installed, this will void your warranty and may require planning permission.
You will need to arrange for a qualified electrician to connect your garden room to your mains supply. All of our workrooms are fitted with an external fuse board at the rear to allow for an easy connection. If you require advice on the electrical connection, we will be happy to advise or even talk to your electrician if needed
Yes. All prices you see are inclusive of VAT. If your business is VAT registered, we can provide both net and gross figures.
If you would like to run a data cable into your home office, just let us know and we will add a blank plate for a data point next to your electrics.
Our Millboard cladding comes in 2 lovely colours, so you should not need to paint your building. If you wanted to put a paint finish over the Millboard we could not guarantee that this finish would last.
Get in touch to find out more about where we can and can’t install our buildings.
Planning permission is not usually required as our buildings fall under permitted development (built under 2.5m high). Most houses, even in areas of natural beauty (AONB), have permitted development rights. In some cases, you may require planning permission. The process is straightforward, and we can offer assistance in securing an agreement from the local authority. We can discuss this with you during our initial visit.
If your building falls within permitted building rights, you should not need planning permission for your garden room. It is always worth getting in touch with your local planning authority to find out what your permitted development rights are, as these can change from property to property.
While it is possible, we do not recommend fitting solar panels on your roof for two reasons: (1) It will take a long time to recoup the investment you make by fitting solar panels to such a small space. Our garden room buildings are so well insulated that they are already very cheap to heat. (2) Fitting solar panels would mean sacrificing the green sedum roof and would also require fixing through the EDPM roofing, which would void your guarantee.
All internal walls are finished in 9mm plywood which is sanded and then painted. We finish every panel with two primer coats followed by two coats of a Farrow & Ball modern emulsion topcoat. We offer a choice of eight colours as standard. If you would like another colour then ask.
We do not offer plastered walls. Plastered walls are susceptible to cracking.
We ask for a £1k holding deposit to secure your installation slot. Once we have completed a home consultation we will send you a detailed quote and request a 20% deposit. 4 weeks prior to installation we will finalise your installation date and request the bulk progress payment. Once your garden room has been installed, and you are 100% satisfied with your new workroom, we ask for the final instalment of £5,000 on completion.
We do our absolute best to have all home office buildings built and installed within 12-16 weeks of receiving an order. However, this can depend on how many orders we receive and the number of workrooms we are building.
We can discuss all aspects of your installation at the site survey, but our team will need clear access to transport the components of your building to the installation area. We will also need to be able to park as close as possible to the property. If not inconvenient, please leave cones on the street for us, or clear your driveway. The ground area must be no more than 250mm out of level, or our steel screw piles will not be suitable, and your installation will be delayed.
As long as the site is within 250mm of level and is free from trees, shrubs or bushes, we will be able to carry out all other site preparations. We will lay a root block membrane before fitting the floor panels, so any vegetation underneath will not grow up under the building.
We use steel screw pile foundations. They are quick and easy to fit and are solid and secure. They also cause no lasting damage to the ecosystem and can be removed when necessary, without leaving a trace.
We offer free installation within 20 miles of Bristol. If you live outside this area, please contact us for a personalised quote.
We do have both of our current models available for viewings at our workshop in central Bristol. We also have a selection of demonstration sections to show you exactly how our buildings are constructed. When you visit us, you see several buildings at different stages of construction. You will need to book an appointment, so contact us today.
Our unique approach to manufacturing means your new garden room can usually be constructed in under two days. We always make a contingency to allow for an extra day in case of any unforeseen delays or issues with the weather.
All our workrooms are lower than 2.5m. This adheres to all current planning guidelines and restrictions.
We prefer to install our garden rooms in good weather, but this isn’t always possible. We will do everything we can to get your building installed on the date we have specified.
We buy all of our doors and windows from Nine-Zero Ltd in Cornwall. These are all made in England from the highest quality FSC hardwood timbers and fitted with Argon filled Pilkington K-Toughened double-glazed units. These windows not only offer incredible U Values, but they are also stunningly well made. Each of our doors is fitted with superior quality 5-pin mortice locks, and you will be supplied with three keys.
