A step by step guide to tell you everything you need to know ahead of ordering one of our garden rooms and help explain our order process from start to finish.
We have created 3 standard ranges; The Finsbury, The Mayfair and The Dulwich. However all of the components are interchangeable, enabling us to offer a complete bespoke service and help you achieve the garden room you desire.

Select your style
We have 3 different designs of garden rooms on offer; The Finsbury, The Mayfair and The Dulwich. All of which bring their own unique style to your garden. At this stage, it is just about selecting the overall shape of the building as all of the windows and doors are interchangeable and the same applies with the external cladding, but more on this later.
Decide on the size
The next stage is to agree the size of your building. Please remember all of our sizes are external and therefore the maximum size of the building. A couple of things to consider when making this decision:
Free Site Survey
We offer a free of charge, no obligation, site survey to all potential customers. We feel this is an important part of the decision making process, to ensure the designated area is suitable and assist you in designing your ideal garden room. We will discuss the construction process, measure your garden space and assess the access to your premises. Depending on your location this will be either a visit to site or via sykpe.
Our garden rooms have been designed to comply with permitted development rights and therefore planning permission is not usually required. If the building is being placed within 2m of your boundary it should remain under 2.5m in height, if it is placed 2m or more away then you can increase the height up to 3m. To find out more about permitted development take a look a the planning portal by clicking here.
Choose your doors & windows
As standard all of our buildings come with the uPVC doors & windows as shown in the display image, see below to see what included for each model. However all of the doors and windows can be changed / added / removed or upgraded to aluminium if you wish.
What's included as standard?
The additional options
Choose your external cladding
As standard the prices include 21mm Grade A Larch cladding. Larch is an extremely durable type of external cladding, it comes in a range of warm hues; from orange to red-brown, but over the years it weathers to a very desirable silver-grey. The colours are striking yet inoffensive and natural, creating a natural feel to the building.
We do also offer cedar and composite cladding, which can be placed on any building. Cedar cladding is renowned for it’s ‘natural beauty’; the reddish hue, tight grain patterns and soft texture make it a popular choice. Composite cladding offers a completely different look; one that is ultra-modern and available in a wide variety of different colours and grains.
All of 3 cladding options offer minimal maintenance and be fitted horizontally or vertically.
Finalise internal options
There are so many different ways you can use your garden room and these various different uses will effect how you would like it finished internally. For example, a workshop would be better suited with a ply line finish whereas an outdoor living area would benefit from a full plaster finish and internal painting.

- The Finsbury – open plan 1 room

Internal walls can be added for £100 per linear metre. Internal doors can be added for £450 inc VAT. Door as shown in the image.
Laminate flooring is included in all of our garden room prices. You can select the colour of the floor from a wide variety, here are some of our popular choices.
To ensure your garden room is finished as exactly as you would like it, we offer a number of optional extras for you to consider. Please contact the office for further information.
