How Our Garden Rooms Support Your Fitness Goals
Built with care from durable Scandinavian redwood and insulated for year-round comfort, our garden rooms keep you protected from the elements while bringing the outdoors in.
Whether you need room for bulky equipment, mirror-lined walls for training clients, or open floor space for group classes, we can tailor our garden rooms to match your needs precisely. And you will never have to waste time driving to a crowded gym again.
Your custom home workout space is mere steps away, on your schedule, 24/7.
Face Your Home Fitness Challenges Head-On
For homeowners wanting to stick to a fitness routine and finally meet and exceed those milestones, there can be several worries that put a stop to progress.
Our garden rooms are designed by you, for you, and can provide you with:
That Extra Space You Need
Workout equipment, from free weights to mats and machines takes up considerable room. And trying to fit it all into a corner of the house rarely works. This is why most rely on their local gym to house the equipment they need.
But our garden rooms provide the dedicated area needed for a fully outfitted home gym. No more sharing your favourite equipment or self-conscious workout sessions. Just you and your goals, working together in comfort and privacy.
A Much-Needed Break From Commuting
Travelling to and from the gym wastes the time and energy you could be spending working out. Couple that with waiting for machines, and the process doubles in length. Would it not be nice to be able to work out when you feel like it? A quick session before or after work, without the peak-time hordes?
A home gym eliminates the commute and lets you work out on your own schedule.
Room to Teach Others
For personal trainers or group instructors, finding an affordable space to hold sessions can be tough. Even casual fitness enthusiasts may want to work out with friends or family, but find it difficult to get people together with differing memberships and a lack of space.
Our garden rooms offer the ideal teaching environment right at your home, where you can gather a chosen few and share your experiences together. Exercise is best enjoyed with others, especially friends – so why not open your doors to the possibility?
3 More Advantages of Choosing Our Garden Gyms
1. Full Customisation Potential
With flexible dimensions and finishes, we tailor our garden rooms to match your ideal layout and aesthetics. Design a one-of-a-kind gym that maximises every inch.
2. Complete Convenience
Skip the commute and crowded gyms. Your personal home gym is just steps outside your door, on your schedule. Work out anytime without waiting.
3. Plenty of Natural Light
Abundant windows of your choice bathe your gym in natural light, providing a bright and uplifting environment, and a view of your garden.

Once you have selected a model, the customisation really begins. Choose from quality uPVC or aluminium windows and doors in a variety of colours to control natural light, ventilation, and privacy. Then select your preferred wood cladding such as pressure-treated shiplap or rich cedar planking, to create your perfect fitness sanctuary.

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.
Many thanks to you and the installation team we are very pleased with our buildings that have been constructed over the past couple of days. They compliment the 2 garages and a pool shed which have been built on the property since 2004
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.
We are delighted with our Contemporary Garden Office
We are delighted with our Contemporary Garden Office. From visiting your beautiful showroom, right to finishing , all has been excellent. Very helpful staff, clear and easy to use website, very pleasant team who erected building. Well made, well insulated, great value. Thank you very much.

We LOVE our garden officeHi Team Warwick…Hope you are all well. We LOVE our garden office and I’ll send you some photos in a mo, although we haven’t quite finished decorating the garden outside so will send you more once we have!Many thanksAmanda
Work ethic was magnificent
5 stars. Is there anything else you would like to say? YES - where did you get your quality staff from? Work ethic was magnificent.
Good morning David, As you know Miles dropped over yesterday morning and sorted out the problem with the bifold doors on my new office. Thank you very much for responding so promptly and resolving the problem. Great service. Regards, Louise P

Hi, I have to say your guys did a cracking job here on the build and with cleaning the site up they are a credit to your company. Sincerely Mr and Mrs Widdall
Mr and Mrs Widdall
5 stars on every aspect, but an extra mention for the on site team as they did an excellent job installing my garden room
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.
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.
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.
Chipping Campden Scouts Treasurer

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.

See google review
Not many people add a Google review as well as sending back their aftersales questionnaires. Mike was delighted with the new garden office and rated the office team as outstanding, and the on site team as excellent. The full review is on Google.
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.
Excellent service – as always
I'm a previous customer (as you know) and this is my 3rd garage from you. Excellent service as always - I'm delighted with the garage. Thanks
Credit to the company
The guys who installed were professional, fished in good time, left the garden tidy - credit to the company
Fantastic service from start to finish - a job well done. Thanks!
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.
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.
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.
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!
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....
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.
Really helpful staff with a can do approach.
Really helpful staff with a can do approach and a great show site that shows the quality of the products. The visit firmed up ideas for a new stable block and within budget.
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.
We love our new garden office
Thanks for an outstanding buying experience. From the start, Warwick Buildings have been fantastic. The delivery & build team were great! We love our new garden office.
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
How amazing is that!
My garden room was 24 degrees this morning without heating on - how amazing is that!
Loving the office

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.
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.
We’re very pleased with the car port
Thank you - we're very pleased with the car port. The service from Warwick Buildings has been excellent at every stage.
Worth the wait…
A long wait but worth it in the end. The installation team were brilliant, as were the office staff.
Fantastic service - the team are a credit to you. Thank you also for the recommendation of Daron for the concrete base
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.
Recommended by a friend
A friend recommended me to Warwick Buildings. Glad they did. 5 stars all round.

Fantastic service all round
Fantastic service all round. We're really pleased with our garage and extend our thanks to everyone at Warwick Buildings
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.

Concrete Pad & Single Brick Course – Scroll down for full details:
150mm compact hardcore: DPM: 100mm concrete: Single course of semi-engineering bricks
Please allow 50mm additional concrete in addition to the size of your garage.
Your groundwork plan is issued when your order is placed and your final design is confirmed.
We allow a 5mm tolerance for the brick course – please use a laser level when setting the bricks.
In most cases the base is too large to dig by hand, hence a local contractor will be required to do the groundwork for you.
You start by digging out the ground down to a depth of 10 inches, with any spoil either removed by skip off site, or dispersed somewhere else on site.
Secondly the land / mains drains will be put in place, and soak aways will be constructed. The soak away will be a deep pit, about 1m x 1m x 2m deep and filled with gravel, with the drainage piped into the top of it. This is mainly to take the rainwater from the guttering.
Once the drains are prepared, the hardcore is put in to a depth of 150mm and compacted down. Once compacted, the shuttering around the edge is put in place.
The concrete is to a depth of 100mm, and should be a c35 mix, or a mix with fibres. For example a 6m x 6m square base will need 6m x 6m x 0.1m = 3.6 square metres of concrete. A tamped finish is sufficient, although a floated finish will be smoother. Timescale for this should be a single day.
Once the concrete has been laid for a couple of days the brick course can be fitted. This should take about half a day for the 6m x 6m base.
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).
We require a minimum of side access of a minimum width of 600mm and a height of 1950mm to allow us to install your building. Should you be concerned about access in to your garden please email us pictures of the access and we will be able to confirm whether it is suitable.
For the majority of our buildings, they are delivered on a 7.5 tonne lorry. This is the typical size of a concrete mixer lorry and will take up the equivalent space of 2 standard vehicles. We will require parking for our vehicle as close as possible to your property.
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 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.
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 – depending on the final specification.
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.
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)
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.
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.
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.
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 – please 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
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 – with Anthracite grey being the most popular choice. You can select u-PVC as this also matches the Aluminium Bi-Fold doors.
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 – 25mm 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.
Pitched roof buildings can have any of the roofing options that we provide, whereas the single slope buildings are only available with steel roofing sheets.
Felt Tiles is standard on the pitched roof garden rooms and garages. They are created in a sheet format that has 4 tiles on each sheet – the above tile covers the lower sheet by 50% to provide a double layer of tiles. In addition to this we also cover the roof with breathable underfelt before the tiles are fitted – which creates a 3 layer roofing system with an average lifespan of 15 years.
Steel Roofing Sheets are covered with plastisol and available in a range of colours. It is fitted to the roof onto the breathable underfelt to create a 2 layer roof covering that is condensation free. When fitted to the Garden Offices the insulation in the roof ensures virtually no noise is heard during inclement weather. Average lifespan is 25 years for the steel sheeting.
Onduline Roofing is a standard roof finish for stables. It is felt and bitumen compressed into a corrugated format and can be nailed directly onto the purlins with or without boarding underneath. For the optimum life expectance of 15 years we would recommend boarding and underfelt as a base for the Onduline to sit onto. The Onduline can sit directly onto the purlins however this will reduce the average lifespan of the product. (Only available on equestrian buildings).
Tapco Slate is a perfect solution for customers looking for a tiled roof look, but would like the building supplied & fitted by one company. Fitted onto boarding, underfelt & battens the Tapco slate is a man made lightweight roofing solution that appears as realistic as natural slates. Available in a range of colours, with a maximum roof pitch of 25 degrees, the average lifespan is 40 years for this roof finish.
Green mineral felt is a polyester based felt and is much thicker and stronger than normal shed roofing felt that you would buy from a DIY store. Average lifespan is 6-8 years.
Clay or Slate Tiles @ 30 degrees. Customers that require this finish will require a tiler to supply & fit the battens, membrane, tiles and soffits for this option. Warwick Buildings will obtain the trusses and install them at 600mm centres in readiness for the tiler to continue from that point. The two end trusses will be clad, however please note that there will not be any overhangs to the gable end on this option.
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.
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.

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.
