TELL ME MORE ABOUT GARDEN ROOMS

What is a Garden Room?

Garden rooms are stand alone buildings that are separate from the house, which increase the amount of living space you have at home. They are much cheaper to build than a costly extension, and are usually added without the need for planning.

A garden room is different in design to the current modern garden offices plus it isn’t essential to have electrics or the internet. They are much more durable than a garden shed however, and top of the range garden rooms now have insulation and double glazing. This makes them suitable for year round use, and especially useful for an occasional bedroom. Other popular uses include a tranquil relaxation room where you can read a book and just get away from it all.

Most garden rooms have pitched roofs and are considered to be more traditional in style, however contemporary and modern designs are also suitable for extra rooms in the garden. For more details on Garden Rooms click here

Benefits of a Garden Room

If you are looking for extra space, then a pre fabricated garden room should be something that you seriously consider. Firstly, if you can install it in your back garden then it is likely to be within permitted development. Secondly, the cost of a brick built extension is far greater than a garden room of the equivalent size.

A wooden building by nature is much warmer than a brick construction, so with the addition of PIR insulation, you can easily obtain the equivalent u-value that a new house can provide. Adding double or even triple glazed doors and windows, will also take it to the same level as your house for both security and usability.

You could also use the new room for extra income, and set up and AirBNB unit ‚Äď subject to planning. Rent it out regularly and it could pay for itself within a couple of years.

Why are they cheap to run

I HAVE A BUDGET IN MIND - WHAT ARE MY OPTIONS

My budget is ¬£10,000 ‚Äď can I get a garden room

Great news ‚Äď The Traditional and Contemporary garden room designs have a building that is within your price bracket.

These would be the smallest sizes that are fully insulated, however if you are happy to have a non insulated version, you can choose a larger size without the internal fitting out. This could be a good option as the double external skin will still offer a superior quality summerhouse.

Garden Rooms from £10,000
Contemporary garden room

My budget is ¬£15,000 ‚Äď what are my options?

All of the models are available to you, however the most popular size of 5m wide x 3m deep starts at £15,000 for the building.

To complete the project within the budget, the most common size is 3.8m x 2.4m ‚Äď which is ample for a sofa and a couple of chairs, or a desk.

Traditional Garden Rooms

My budget is ¬£20,000 ‚Äď what are my options?

Here’s where you get to choose the perfect garden room. Vertical cedar, Tapco Slate, Bi-Fold doors… the decision is yours.

Increasing the height of the roof will also give you that feeling of space, and the vaulted ceiling give a much more airy feel to the inside. The open roof truss in the middle of the room will provides a beautiful feature to hang lights, or naturally split the open plan room.

Do Garden Rooms Need Planning Permission?

Garden rooms are considered to be permitted development in most locations. Providing you are in the back garden, you can build on half of the plot as long as you don’t protrude past the front of the house.

If you are within two metres of the boundary, the new building can be up to 2.5m high, and even taller if you are over two metres away from the boundary line. This allows you to have a pitched roof up to four metres, and a flat roof up to three metres tall.

Should you be in areas of outstanding natural beauty, within grounds of a listed house, or in a garden flat, you are likely to require planning permission.

Plan your garden room layout

We know that the garden office pod will look great in your garden, but to ensure that you make the most out of your new space you should use a room planner to help with the layout. As a result, it will improve the efficiency of the room, and may impact on where you have doors, windows, lights and sockets. It could also determine where you have it located in the garden.

The use of a room planner is a great way to check whether your current furniture or proposed new desk will fit neatly in your new room. A simple solution for this is to use the free Ikea tool, as this allows you to easily create a 2d or 3d version of the room, along with the vast selection of Ikea furniture available. It also creates a shopping list, in case any of the furniture is too good to resist.

How about a Home Gym

Another popular use for garden rooms is the home gym. A purpose built space can save you a fortune on monthly subscriptions, and travelling costs. Then there’s the advantage of the equipment being clean and ready for use when you need it.¬†Not only that, the garden gym entices you into keeping fit, as it is always ready and waiting right in front of you.

Our garden rooms can cater for all types of fitness fanatic, whether additional height is needed for tall equipment, or a suitable floor is needed for heavy weights. We can even partition off a section for a shower room to be incorporated within the scheme.

Or it could be an Art Studio?

An insulated garden room is a fabulous place for your art studio, especially if you have a fully glazed front. The advice that David Sandell (shortlisted in 2014 for ‚ÄėArtist of the Year‚Äô by Artist & Illustrator magazine),¬†would give you, is to have a vaulted ceiling so that an easel can be suitably stood upright. LED light panels are also a good idea as they provide much more expansive lighting than spotlights.

How about a Garden Bar

Outdoor entertaining spaces are becoming a very popular addition to living spaces. By creating a purpose built garden room, you get a ready made space for a party, watching sport, or enjoying a movie. It could even be a purpose built space for a gaming zone, pool table or a table tennis room. Whether it’s a man cave, a she shed, or a kids den, an insulated garden room is an ideal acquisition for extra space.

What Makes A Great Garden Room

THE RIGHT DECISION

Apart from being the first to market and evolving the design over a quarter of a century, we understand how vital proportion and detailing are in the overall design and look of a Garden Room. Along with the overall shape and look, once you get the glazing in balance, you can focus on finishes.

What works best over time is a cladding that looks good, requires little maintenance and lasts a lifetime. The insulation requirements for a garden room are slightly different. The room must heat quickly as the nature of the usage is different to a home. That is why the insulated timber floor cassettes and cavity fitted insulation in the walls make such a difference.

With glazing quality matching housing standards, the noise and thermal performance keep your room quiet and warm. A garden room needs lighting and sockets that are fully compliant. A small panel with main fuse, RCB and MCB cover will provide a reliable and safe supply. All these factors means the garden room can operate very well as an independent, fully-fitted home office, studio, gym etc.

Garden Room U-Values

The biggest question on everybody’s lips is… Are they warm enough in winter?

The short answer is yes, although you will need a small electric heater to boost the temperature. Once the desired temperature is reached, the heat loss is minimalised by the construction materials. Each construction material is given an R value, and together they are calculated to create a U-Value.

The lower the U-value, the more thermally efficient the wall construction is, so a U value of 0.30 is much better than one of 2.35.

Current building regulations require new houses to be under 0.30 W/m2K, in order to pass the current specifications.

So how does that compare to our garden rooms? Well, it’s great news for us…

Our floors are 0.17 W/m2K, whilst our walls and roofs are 0.25 W/m2K, making them extremely efficient and cheap to run.

Access for Garden Rooms

You may think that living in a terraced house or a property with side access is a problem. Well, think again…

Providing you have a straight line, it should be possible for our garden rooms to be installed at your home. Sending over a video of your proposed route to the back garden means that we can explain what is possible. It could be that only certain buildings are available from us, however that could still save you thousands on a bespoke built garden room.

Groundwork for Garden Rooms

To get the project off to a good start, the base needs to be flat, level and smooth. This is normally either a concrete pad or a paving slab base, as it is the most cost effective way to do a ground supported slab.
This is the best solution for a garden office base as it creates a solid platform to work from, throughout the whole of the building structure. It is also generally finished at ground level, to ensure the maximum 2.5m height can be utilised for the building.

Other alternatives for groundwork, include ground screw bases, with timber frame platforms. These are a suitable option, but the floor framing will be included within the height of the structure. This can reduce the ceiling height, if thicker structural timbers are required.

For more details on the garden office groundwork, including suitable contractors click the following link…

Garden Room Electrics

Each garden office includes the first fix wiring, and is hidden neatly within the cavity. Not only does this allow you to be up and running quickly, it also ensures your office looks professional too. In addition to the wiring being integrated, the sockets, switches and lights are all flush fitting into their respective panels.

We provide all of the faceplates, luminaires and a consumer unit, for those who can do the second fix themselves. Otherwise, a qualified electrician will be required for the second fix internal connections, and to install the power feed.

The standard garden office includes 3 x double sockets, 1 x switch and internal LED spotlights. Most designs also include deck lights in the overhang, which really enhances the building at night.

The Pitched Roof Designs

The Traditional garden rooms, and the Garden Studios have a classic design that benefits from a Vaulted ceiling.

This time is it a 6 layer system, with the felt tiles being a double layer as they overlap each other to give a double thickness. The tapco slate option adds a further level of battening, but is the same in make up as the standard design, which is as follows.

9mm plywood internal ceiling, 125mm roof joists, 12mm OSB3 roof boards, breathable felt and a felt shingle external roof covering.

Pent Roof Garden Rooms

The Elegance and the Garden Pod offer something much more modern in the roof department.

To achieve minimalistic look, the side walls slope from 2200mm at the front, to 2000mm at the back. There is still plenty of room for a storage system on the back wall, and it can even accommodate spotlights in the ceiling. The 5 layer system is similar to the Contemporary design but is constructed as follows:

9mm plywood internal ceiling, 100mm roof joists, 12mm OSB3 roof boards, breathable felt and external steel sheets onto a single sloped roof.

FAQ's

Do you offer a turnkey solution?

We work on the basis of providing value for money. Having been in business for a long time we have grown to understand that you get what you pay for, hence we have kept faithful to our suppliers for a number of years, so that we receive the best level of service whilst maintaining a quality product. We accept there are cheaper materials, and less expensive staff – however the acid test is would we buy from ourselves? The answer is an overwhelming yes…. and in fact, we have sold buildings to a large number of our suppliers, who have the luxury of being able to visit quite a lot of our competitors.

Whilst this doesn’t answer the turnkey question – what it basically means is that we don’t inflate our price by adding significant costs to your project by simply managing it for you. We have a team of local builders that are prepared to get their hands dirty, and we have plenty of contacts for electricians who don’t use a book of excuses and leave you stranded.

What groundwork is required for garden offices?

Concrete Pad or Paving Slab Base
150mm compact hardcore: DPM: 100mm concrete: or
150mm compact hardcore: 50mm paving slabs on cement sub base

Garden rooms and offices require a flat & level pad of either concrete or paving slabs.
The base will need to be at least the same size as the building you are looking to have, and you
will require 400mm clearance to objects such as fences, trees or other buildings.
We can work within a 10mm tolerance (which a competent builder can easily achieve).

Alternatively, if you are within our standard radius we are able to offer the option of a ground-screw base (on certain models).

What happens if trees are not cut down?

Good forestry management requires the selective felling of trees which would otherwise gradually lose tensile strength over time and which would inhibit new growth resulting in forests which contain a lower grade quality timber overall. Careful forest management is a necessary practice to maintain balanced and healthy forests and should not to be confused with indiscriminate de-forestation which is seen in areas of the world particularly in regions where tropical rain forests predominate and which devastate wild life habitat and contribute to global warming.

Is my garden room/office suitable for year round use?

The Garden Rooms and Offices are fully insulated for year round use. They are designed to be warm in the winter and cool in the summer, however the location in your garden will have an impact on how warm / cool the building is.

North faced gardens will have buildings that are naturally cooler throughout the year, whilst south facing garden will be naturally warmer throughout the year.

A building in the shade or in a north faced garden, will need a small heater during the winter months, but will remain cosy when the building is up to temperature.

A building in direct sunlight or in a south facing garden will benefit from more ventilation and blinds between the glass to keep the building cooler.

The size I required isn’t listed, can you still build it?

The price list has been created to give a price for our most common sizes. If you require a different size to fit in a space available, please contact us to get an accurate price.

Because each building is individually created for you, a guide for the price would be the closest to the size that you are looking to have. Please do get in touch on 01926 815757 and talk to us about your project.

How long will my building take to build on site?

Garden Rooms are usually constructed within 1-2 days (up to 6.2m x 3.6m sizes) depending on the final specifications.

Garages up to 6.1m x 6.1m are usually constructed within 1 day. Larger buildings will often take 2 days on site.

Commercial Buildings usually take 1 week on site Рdepending on the final specification.

How long will my building last?

We regularly have customers that have buildings re-roofed at 15 and twenty years old – who are quite confident that their buildings will last double that time if they get general maintenance and care.
This building was taken by a customer and we have worked out that it was 18 years old, and was still original. The customer has painted the building regularly with Protek Woodstain.

This garden office is 12 years old and has been regularly treated with Dark Oak wood protector. It features timber doors and windows, along with brown felt tiles.

This garage is 24 years old and still has it’s original layer of green mineral felt.

What is the lead time?

The lead time for a building can vary between 2 – 6 months.

You are welcome to book in advance to secure a delivery slot, and still make adjustments to the design up to the point that the base has been constructed.
(Please note that items that have been specifically order for you will still need to be paid for)

Is tanalised timber waterproof?

Tanalised timber is not waterproof, so it is still subject to the natural expansion and contraction as the moisture content in the surrounding atmosphere changes. It advised that a water repellent (clear or colour) treatment is applied to not only maintain the appearance of the building but also to help to exclude moisture being absorbed by the timber surfaces.

Are all hardwoods more solid than softwoods?

Somewhat confusingly this is not always the case – Balsa wood for example is an extremely ‚Äôsoft‚Äô wood as is Cedar however both are classed as hardwoods. The high quality softwood used by Warwick Buildings is in fact a ‚Äėhard‚Äô wood and it is this quality which stands out particularly to those who visit the Warwick Buildings Show Site to view the buildings in person ‚Äď one simply cannot mistake quality construction and materials when seen first hand.

Can my garden room be used as a music studio?

We can provide RWA45 Rockwool acoustic insulation in place of the standard insulation and the option to upgrade to triple-glazed doors and windows.

RB Studios¬†in Birmingham¬†have utilised 5 of our garden offices as music studios. These studios have been used by¬†many famous Artists and Bands, and are Birmingham’s longest established recording and rehearsal¬†studios.

How do I get internet to my garden room/garden office?

There are two ways to get internet to the new Garden Office.

Option 1 is to have a CAT 5 cable coming from a router in your house, down the garden and into the back of the building.
We can supply a back box specifically for a CAT 5 cable. Usually the cable is better to be unbroken – hence we don’t internally wire with a CAT 5 cable to pug into

Option 2 is to purchase a WiFi extender kit or a mobile data dongle.

Please explain the electrics?

Garden Rooms and Offices include the first fix wiring, along with the consumer unit, lighting and the faceplates.

All wiring is installed within the cavity and is ready for an electrician to connect the tail ends of the wiring at the consumer unit and the faceplates.

The electrician will need to provide and install a power feed from your house / garage to the new building – usually a 6mm armoured cable is used. The wiring provided is 1.5mm cables for lighting on a 6 Amp fused circuit, and 2.5mm cables with a 32 Amp breaker for the sockets – on a ring main.
There is space for a 3rd breaker if it is required for another feed.

It usually takes half a day for the internal connections, plus the time required for the electrician to install the cable that you require.

Our electrician can offer customers in Warwickshire and Worcestershire with installation and certification independently Рplease contact him directly (Andy Punnett) via his website www.aspelectrics.co.uk If you live in Berkshire or Hampshire, please contact Ben Thorp on 07917 131984

Please explain the window options available?

We have suppliers for u-PVC and aluminium windows, all of which can be fitted into any of our buildings.

u-PVC Windows are the standard option for Garden Rooms and Offices due to their maintenance free properties. Available in a a choice of colours, but usually supplied in the popular Anthracite Grey or Black. The u-PVC windows can be fitted into any of our buildings and it is becoming increasingly more common to have them in garages and workrooms.

Aluminium is usually provided as bi-fold doors. Windows are available in Aluminium again available in a range of colours Рwith Anthracite grey being the most popular choice. You can select u-PVC as this also matches the Aluminium Bi-Fold doors.

Please explain the cladding options available?

Shiplap – 16mm x 125mm Scandinavian Redwood machined to our unique profile, with an extra long rebate to allow for natural movement of timber. It is pressure treated to a light green colour to protect against rot & decay for 15 years and is the ideal choice for customers who like a smooth finish and little maintenance.

Feather Edge Р25mm x 150mm home grown spruce with a sawn finish, that provides a much thicker and heavier look to the shiplap. Again it is pressure treated in a light green colour, and is the ideal cladding for customers looking for a traditional looking building that is full of character. The size and weight of the feather edge along with the manufacturing processes mean that this board is a more expensive option over the shiplap cladding.

Cedar – 12mm x 100mm Tongue & Groove cladding machined to create a modern looking finish. Each board is unique as this beautiful cladding¬†naturally ranges from¬†a dark hardwood to a light pine in colour thus creating a¬†fantastic looking natural building. The hardwood properties of Cedar mean that it¬†hardly expands or contracts during changes in weather,¬†whilst it¬†also has it’s own unique protection against rot, decay and insect infestation. Whilst the Cedar will fade in the sunlight, it is a must for customers looking for that wow factor on a¬†garden room or garage, and it will continue to offer that feeling especially if protected against UV rays with Restol Oil.

How much clearance do I need around my building?

We require a minimum of 600mm around the building to be able to fit the cover strips and guttering on the outside of the building.

If you have less space available please contact us on 01926 815757, as we will discuss the options available on an individual basis – it may be that we can still accommodate your project.

What can I have without planning?

Buildings close to a boundary will need to be 2.5m high. If you require a taller building without planning you will need to be more than 2m away from your boundary.
You will need to locate your building either to the side or to the back of the house – buildings in front of the house will need planning permission.

Please note that the customer is responsible for planning permission, and may need to contact the council for full clarification of their permitted development rights.

If you require planning permission, you will need a local planning consultant or architect to prepare the drawings required for a planning application. We can provide the information for you to allow the drawings to be produced. You can then either submit the application yourself or employ someone to do so on your behalf.

What maintenance is required?

The weather, location and the sun can all have an effect on buildings, however throughout our 35 years we understand how our product works and how it stands up to the test of time.

Your maintenance schedule should be:

  • To clean the gutters out to keep free from debris
  • Adjust doors and windows that have expanded or contracted through weather conditions
  • Remove debris from the roof
  • Treat the outside of the building as required to maintain an attractive appearance. (This provides a waterproof coat to the timber and keeps the moisture content of the wood consistent – which in turn improves the stability of the timber, and reduces the expansion & contraction of the timber)

Our guarantee is in respect of design and manufacturing faults, corrosion and rot for 10 years from the date of installation.

    I spotted your van when you were at my neighbours, popped in to see what they were having, and liked what I saw. What else can I say - great product, great communication throughout - easy process - very happy.

  • Great to support local business

    Very professional throughout. Being able to view the product and discuss design and alterations was very important, especially when spending this amount. Seeing the product is key, plus being local - it was great to support local business.

  • Loving the garden office

    I've known Warwick Buildings for a long time and I've been daydreaming about working from home in my very own garden office for years. Finally I've managed to connect the loose ends together, and I am now enjoying the increased enthusiasm that I get from the improved vista that overlooks the valley below. It's certainly been worth the wait. Loving the garden office

  • 30 Years old – still looks fantastic

    I'm finally returning as a customer, as I would like 2 buildings for the house I'm moving to in Norfolk. The last one is 30 years old and still looks the same as the day it was put up. No rot, no decay - just a brilliant building. The overhangs really protect it, and I've only re-felted it once in all that time. I'm delighted you're still in business as I'm not looking anywhere else for the new ones.

    Mr Ford

  • Another building

    We bought a curved roof office last year - so the next studio naturally was built by you.

    Mr Williams

  • Value for money

    I chose Warwick because they adapted my office to suit me, and they would always update any changes in writing. OK the lead time was a bit longer than I'd anticipated, but that meant they were busy, so it gave me confidence that my money was safe. The team arrived and built it in next to no time, and they even cleared up after themselves... I'd have no hesitation in recommending them

    Sam

  • Super buildings

    I'm a very pleased returning customer. Super buildings as always. Looking forward to the next one.

  • So professional & efficient

    Positive experience from first call to your office requesting brochure, to erection of office on site. The on site team were amazing - so professional and efficient.

    Mr Kings

  • Everything I had hoped for.

    I was unable to visit the show site and so was a little concerned as to what the build quality would be like. I needn’t have worried as when the product was delivered it was everything I had hoped for.

    Mr Pygall

  • Professional, respectful and efficient

    We are really happy with the service provided. Andrea in sales was very attentive and your delivery & on-site team were extremely professional, respectful and efficient.

    S Jones

  • Very helpful.

    Visited here to get an idea of the possibilities for a new garden office workshop we are looking to have built. They have examples of the various buildings that appear on the website, makes it a lot easier to picture the options, and to get real idea of scale. The gentlemen we spoke to was very helpful. Now just need to put our design on paper.

    Dave Deacon

  • Service was outstanding from start to finish

    Service was outstanding from start to finish. Andrea was so helpful, and Jake was efficient with booking everything in. The guys on site couldn't be faulted, and Daron did a fab job with the base.

    S Allen

  • Superb.

    Superb. I've just had a garage supplied and installed by Warwick, and have been very impressed with both the building itself and their customer service and support. The building was supplied and fitted ahead of schedule, which was nice. After initial installation there were a couple of minor snags, which Warwick addressed and put right first thing the next day. You can't ask for more than that. I would wholeheartedly recommend Warwick based on both the quality of their product and their customer service.

    Chris Baker

  • Fantastic service all round

  • My previous garage is still good after 13 years

    I previously bought from you in 2007. Still the same quality, and service. My previous garage is still good after 13 years so I knew how good the quality of your garages was before I decided to buy this one. Your office staff were also excellent.

    Mr Ironside

  • Great company – would certainly recommend.

    We've had two buildings from Warwick. First one over twenty years ago which we insulated and finished off ourselves. It's been brilliant so we had no hesitation to go back when we needed a second one. This time we chose a contemporary design which was fully kitted out, saving us time, money and arguments. Same lad that did the first one is still working there and takes care with the finishing touches. Great company - would certainly recommend.

  • I found them great and the building I bought is quality

    Well I'm just going to sell my 4 year old "traditional office" supplied by them as I don't use it much and came across these reviews. My office is (as stated) four years old. Still 100% water tight everything is perfect despite being under a tree all the time. I found them great and the building I bought is quality....

    Richard Jenkinson

  • Three super buildings

    The first two buildings that we used for classrooms, were so good that we decided to dismantle one of the old sheds and have a new one in it's place. Thank you - the students and the staff are in heaven.

  • We are so glad to have found you.

    We are so glad to have found you. We are surrounded by 'bespoke' garden office companies here in London - but your range is just as impressive. The showroom visit sealed the deal for us + we are thrilled with our new garden office. Your prices are much more reasonable than most, and your team have been FANTASTIC from start to finish.

    Mr K Bailey

  • We’re very happy with the quality.

    I have previously purchased THREE double garages from Warwick Buildings, the first over twenty years ago is still standing, although unsurprisingly, we re-roofed it. Currently I'm awaiting a quote for a workshop - but the similar one they delivered and erected two years ago is still like new, no issues at all. We're very happy with the quality.

    David Holmes

  • Excellent & prompt response to queries

    Wonderful product, exactly what we wanted. Exemplary service at every stage. Excellent and prompt response to queries... Jake particularly awesome!

    Mr Young

  • 23 Years old and looking fabulous

    Dear David You built the garage for me in Nov 2000 and the wood is as good today as when you built it and I’ve been very pleased with it. Rain stopped my Cuprinol painting this morning but I thought about the possibility of replacing the felt with Tapco slates, depending on price etc, as it has plenty of life left in it. Best wishes Mark D.

  • It has enhanced our garden, the structure is very sound and looks great. Highly recommended.

    I was looking for an alternative to a standard concrete garage and found Warwick via google. I paid them a visit and was impressed with the standard of the wooden buildings they manufacture, so placed an order. Garage is now complete and I am very very pleased, it has enhanced our garden, the structure is very sound and looks great. Highly recommended.
