Garden Room

Our Design Options for Garden Buildings

Few things rejuvenate and repurpose an outdoor space better than a garden building. With our wide range of bespoke designs, we have timber-framed kits to suit just about any purpose. Creating a comfortable leisure space or a quiet retreat, an extra storage space for your odds and ends, or even an attractive location to house a small business venture or specified utility. 

Our most popular designs for garden buildings include:

Bespoke Garden Rooms

An oak-framed garden room is a brilliantly versatile garden building, and with the fully customisable features we offer, you can create a space that suits you. Our bespoke garden rooms can be transformed in an instant, with just a few interior design tweaks. You could create an extra living space with cosy soft furnishings and mood lighting, maybe even dedicate a corner to your very own home bar. 

Alternatively, our garden rooms can be made into a source of inspiration. Maintain a healthy lifestyle and convert your new garden room into a home gym, or upgrade your work-from-home schedule by turning your garden room into a home office. Your imagination is the limit.

Oak-Framed Complexes

If you have a lot of extra space in your garden, an oak-framed complex could be the best way to make the most of it, instead of letting it go to waste. Our stunning complexes take versatility one step further, offering the perfect storage space for cars or even horses, as well as dedicated spaces to work from. You can combine our oak-framed designs to create a truly unique build, from striking straight complexes to more dynamic L-shaped arrangements.

Secure Timber Garages

Combining our signature oak-framed structure with a wide range of bespoke designs, our timber garages complete your home like no other. Adjust your design to fit your storage needs, from single- to four-bay variations, as well as custom options. Your bays can be open-air for easy access and a classic look, or fitted with highly secure garage doors made with the finest quality oak joinery. 

Your timber garage can fulfil all of your storage needs while at the same time providing a safe area to conduct repairs and complete large design projects. And with the addition of stairs and converted roof spaces, you can create an extra living space or garden office/studio.

Commercial Garden Buildings

Our bespoke garden buildings are not reserved for residential uses only – with the right design elements and location on your property, a garden building can also effectively fulfil commercial purposes. You could create a space for a small business venture or retail outlet, a studio space or workshop for group-working that doubles as a gallery for evening visits.

With plenty of natural light from our elegant wooden windows, fully insulated rooms, and the natural warm energy from the oak structure itself, our garden buildings have been made into successful yoga studios for groups of all sizes, and large-scale co-working spaces for family-run small businesses looking for a place to base themselves that is flexible and cost-effective.

Will My Garden Building Need Planning Permission?

Most of our standard garden room and garage designs are considered permitted developments, but it will depend entirely on your specific design and existing building regulations that may be already be applied to your property. 

Generally speaking, as long as your garden building is no more than 2.5 metres high and placed either behind or off to the side of your home, you should not require planning permission. But we do recommend checking with your local council to be sure what is needed of you before we can start building.
