As all of our garden rooms are individually designed, it is hard for us to present a list of prices. However, if you complete our Project Planner [insert link] we will email across an estimate.
Our showroom is available to visit by appointment only. Located in Mid Sussex, it will give you an opportunity to look at cladding options and our first class interior finish. If your garden room design is particularly unique, we will look to take you to a previous build that has a similar finish.
Please complete our Project Planner [insert link] and a member of our team will be in touch with an estimate. If our estimate is suitable, we will put together a design idea and from there arrange a site visit. Following our meeting, we will send you a comprehensive quotation.
We offer a structural 10 year warranty against building defects.
We require a 50% deposit to confirm your build. A 25% payment is due seven days into the work. The final 25% payment is due on completion.
There is typically an 8 – 12 week lead time for available start dates. If you are keen to schedule your garden room build, we ask for a £500 refundable deposit to hold a date.
An average garden room build will take approximately two working weeks given that there are no delivery delays. Larger projects can take anywhere from three to six weeks.
In most cases, a garden room can be built under permitted development rules. This is because most of our garden rooms do not exceed 2.5 metres in height when being built within 2 metres of the boundary. If you live in a maisonette or listed building, then planning permission is required. For a more detailed look at planning, we suggest reading the Planning Portal’s Guide.
Where planning permission is required, our architectural design team can take over the planning application on your behalf. This is usually charged with a separate fee and includes all drawings.
The majority of our garden rooms are built using a concrete screw pile foundation. For our music studios, we recommend a concrete base to aid soundproofing. The foundations are always included in your quotation.
Yes, we insulate the walls, ceiling & floor with a high level of insulation.
Yes, the electrical side of your garden room build is included in your quotation. We will also provide you with an electrical certificate that signs off the work. We price the electrical connection separately as this differs from household to household and depends upon factors such as your fuse board & the distance to the garden room.
The garden will need to cleared ahead of the work. However, we can quote to assist you with this. We have experience in taking down garages, sheds & with general garden clearance.
All of our garden rooms are professionally plastered and painted. We include a moisture-resistant laminate flooring that is available in a choice of seven colours. A contemporary style of skirting is included as standard. With our bespoke design service, you can request upgrades to your interior finish.
