Garden Rooms with a difference

Our modern garden rooms feature a recessed porch area, but after that, the design is up to you. You can choose to have horizontal or vertical cladding, bi-folding or french doors, extra windows or a partition. You could even have the porch area in the middle if you so wished.

It is constructed in the same way as our Contemporary design but the recessed front adds to the character, and looks especially fabulous at night when the outside lights illuminate the decking.

Modern Garden Rooms

What will yours be?

Fresh Garden Office If you work from home, you may already have a makeshift office set up somewhere in your house ‚Äď a desk in the bedroom, maybe a designated space at the dining table ‚Äď but with a modern garden room, you can give your home office a much-needed upgrade. A mini office building in your garden gives you a place to go in the morning and something to leave in the evening, improving your work-life balance and boosting productivity.
Additional Living Space With the addition of soft furnishings, your new, ultra-modern garden room can become the perfect alternative to a traditional home extension. Enjoy time with friends and family in a comfortable and attractive setting.
Innovative Garden Studio Having a dedicated place to work creatively, on a musical or artistic project, can seem like an unreachable luxury ‚Äď but with a modern garden room, you can have that solitary space to house your creations and achieve better concentration, away from the lively energy in the house.
Well-Equipped Garden Gym It can be hard to stick to an exercise regime, but by converting your modern garden room into a home gym you can bring the workout to you. Lay down some rubber floor tiles to protect the laminate flooring from scuffs and scratches first, and then bring in all of your essential gym equipment ready for the next session. Our bespoke builds can be fitted with as many windows as you like, to let in plenty of natural light, and our choice of bi-folding doors will ensure optimal airflow throughout the building.

Windows & Doors

The Modern Garden Room Range comes as standard with high-quality aluminium double glazed windows and a bi-fold door with a slim profile. Aluminium doors and windows are available in 3 different colour options with 4 choices of colours for the handles and hinges.

The doors are fitted with a multi-point lock that is insurance recognised. The windows are fitted with standard residential locks.

The windows and doors come as standard with 28mm thick double glazing but can be upgraded to triple glazing at an additional cost.

Groundwork Requirements

For the last 30 years, we have tested the various options that are available for the garden building groundwork ‚Äď remember‚Ķ this is not a garden shed.¬† The available solutions are a concrete or paving slab base, ground-screws with a timber frame, suspended floors on piles, or timber decks above ground level.

The conclusion is… the best solution for the building is a ground supporting base.
A ground supported base is either a concrete pad or a paving slab base, and requires the soil to be dug out, and shuttered around the perimeter. The shuttering has a damp proof membrane, half filled with compacted hardcore, and finished with either concrete or smooth slabs. The slab needs to be flat and level, constructed to the same size as the building, and can either be done by your local builder or by one recommended by us.

The easiest solution is often a ground screw base, as this requires less man power, machinery and raw materials. It is also something that we can provide as a option for  majority of cases. This would only be suitable on sites that are clear of debris, solid surfaces, and level within 200mm.

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 access do I need in to my garden for you to install the building?

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.

What size vehicle are the buildings delivered on?

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.

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)

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.

Testimonials

  • Brilliant Company

    Brilliant Company, have dealt with them on more than one occasion, outstanding staff and service, would certainly recommend

    Keith Walker

  • 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.
