Modern Garden Room
A ground supported base is required for this building in the form of either a concrete pad or a paving slab base, which can be provided for you by a local builder.
Ground supporting bases require the soil to be dug out, filled with hardcore and compacted down, before finishing with concrete or smooth slabs. Each base is priced individually due to site conditions, and done by a local builder due to the logistics of organising a skip, hardcore, concrete and access. Remember – this is not a garden shed…if you want the building to last, then you need a ground supporting base.
A local builder keeps the costs sensible and will be able to provide you a more suitable price for a slab base, simply because the site requires an initial visit, preparation, removal of soil, and purchase of materials using local sources. For those who don’t have a contact – we can provide recommendations
For more information refer to the FAQ about why the groundwork is not included.
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.
All of our modern garden rooms come with the choice of unpainted* T&G lining boards or unpainted* 12mm plywood boards with joining strips.
*Please note, these buildings have been painted by the customer after installation.
If you would prefer to plaster your modern garden room after installation we would recommend choosing the non-insulated, non-lined and no electric option on the configurator. Alternatively, you can add your own plasterboard on top of the lining provided.
All of our modern garden rooms come with a 15mm plywood floor which sits on floor joists. The floor is insulated with 70mm PIR insulation and has a DPM built-in. We offer 4 different colour options of the laminate floor which are included in the overall cost of your modern office. Alternatively, you can choose to supply and fit your own flooring on top of the 15mm plywood.

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).
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.
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)
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.
Warwick Garden Rooms and Offices need a solid paving slab or concrete base to support the weight of the building over the complete area of the floor. This is known as a ground supported floor with the concrete pad classed as a floating pad which allows the natural movement of the ground conditions to change without compromising on the base. Ground supporting bases require the soil to be dug out, filling with hardcore and compacted down, before adding concrete or smooth slabs. Each base needs to be priced individually and done by a local builder due to the logistics of organising a skip, hardcore, concrete and access. Remember – this is not a garden shed…If you want your garden room for a long time, then you want the best base for it. And if you want the best base, then you want a concrete base.
Whilst we understand the customer prefers an all in one package, we have regularly looked at ways to suspended floors on small concrete pillars, provide groundwork teams, and design steel chassis as a way to do the whole job – however the cheaper alternatives being the steel chassis, and the pile foundations do not provide a strong enough solution as a base for a garden office. The base of your office or garden room is one of the most important parts of the building. Not only does it give your building a secure and safe place to stand, but it also protects it from flooding, pests, rodents, and other damaging elements.
To keep the costs sensible – a local builder will be able to provide a you cost effective price for a slab base, simply because the site requires an initial visit, preparation, removal of soil, and organisation of materials using local sources.
What is wrong with the steel chassis?
The steel chassis option provides a solid support around the perimeter, and has purlins across the centre to support the middle of the building. This construction will need ground supporting in the corners and at regular intervals under the purlins, hence the need for concrete piles to be installed and packed up so stop any bouncing. In theory this sounds like a good solution, however the steel ringbeam of the chassis will lift the building off the ground and therefore needs to be hidden from view adding additional cost to the materials of the garden room and the labour on site. The overall costs are usually greater as the labour on site to set up the chassis, plus the chassis itself quite often equate themselves to a concrete base cost.
What about the pile foundations.
Supporting the structure on small piles of concrete and plastic packers is a quick and easy way to create a level platform for the building to rest on, however this again needs an initial site visit, and some additional finishing off materials to hide the void under the floor. Companies that include the groundworks within the price of the building can also hide the cost of the base within the building itself, which then begs the question – is a ‘quick base’ going to stand the test of time?
What about a wooden platform?
This is often the base that is provided by companies that build the structure completely on site. It isn’t a bad solution as the timbers used as the base will support the floor – however they are likely to be above ground level, thus impacting on the internal height of the building. This option comes down to cost, as the garden rooms that are built in situ are more expensive to construct on site, compared to a factory build, simply due to time taken to carry the components from the store to the can, and from the van to the garden. It may offer a finish that you ultimately prefer to see, however that essentially comes at an inflated cost.
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.
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.
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 maintainace 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 maufacturing faults, corrosion and rot for 10 years from the date of installation.
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.
Everything was exactly as promised - thank you!
