When space to work in the house runs out, look to the garden! This is what our client in Surrey did who required a professional working area away from the distractions of everyday home life. We designed and built this simple cedar garden office which offers a professional office escape, just moments from the backdoor. Sitting at 3.5 metres by 2.5 metres externally, the outbuilding offers ample room for a desk and storage.
Red western cedar is one of our most popular cladding styles. Its earthy tones of red, brown and orange allow the cladding panels to seamlessly blend with the surrounding garden. It is a sustainable wood, with extremely durable properties such as ability to resell insects and rot. In order for cedar to keep its warm colours, we suggest treating the wood with a UV protector every twelve to eighteen months. However, you may be happy for the cladding to naturally silver down.
"The overall quality is great"
“We are so pleased with our new garden room. The team talked us through all the design options and the cost implications were made really clear so we could make informed decisions. They were such pleasures to have around. The overall quality of the final garden room is great...”
"The build quality is superior..."
"I'm so happy with the finished product, they were a pleasure to have throughout the build time. I can confidently say the process and build quality from Minature Manors is superior in every way; from the communication, the customisation, the finish and even the price. Thank you!"

"The service was exceptional..."
"We're so delighted with EVERYTHING! The whole project took a little over 3 weeks start to finish and the service was exceptional. Our garden room looks even better than the pictures and every member of the team was warm, friendly and helpful. We couldn't have asked for more and would highly recommend them!"
"5-star consultation process with site visit"
"From day 1 of my initial enquiry, Richard was so responsive, approachable and enthusiastic. Despite the relatively modest project size, Richard gave a 5-star consultation process with site visit, computer renders and making numerous suggestions and updates as we moved through the process. The team working on the build itself were a pleasure to have around!.."
"Very tidy and polite/professional..."
"Excellent service throughout, a high quality product in the end, good price, very tidy and polite/professional, communicated clearly from the beginning and explained everything well. Would definitely recommend!"
