This is the interior of a garage conversion and a great example of how fantastic a small space can become. Behind the camera is a loo and shower room, making it perfect for sleepovers as well as general day to day use.
This photo shows one of our Annexes. This one built in South Oxfordshire. All have to be built to building regulations, though like this one, not necessarily requiring planning permission. Difficulties connecting to main drains are overcome with a ‘sump and pump’ solution.
A lovely cedar clad ‘L’ shaped garden office built in Surrey. 2.5m high so no planning permission required. As always, all groundwork, foundations and landscaping completed by us.
This is one of our most popular garden rooms which includes an integral storage shed.
With dimenssions of 4.5m x 4m x 2.5m high it does not require planning permission,
and gives a very spacious room.
A 5m x 3.5m x 2.5m Garden Room built in Buckinghamshire. No need for planning permission. French doors with full height glazed panels to either side and on the corner to give plenty of internal light, a wonderful sense of space and great views of the garden. Cedar clad with white UPVc doors and windows.
This oak framed and oak clad garden room complete with w/c and balcony. Built in a garden North of Oxford and prone to flooding, we built it on stilts for protection. This needed planning permission and building regulations .
This 4m x 3.5m x 2.5m high Garden Room in Oxford has bi-fold doors across the front elevation, a roof overhang with lights and wall mounted TV and surround sound speakers. It has a green ‘Sedum’ Roof. No Planning Permission required.
Taller than normal, this Garden Studio built in London is 2.8m high and so required planning permission. Although sometimes difficult to be granted permission in small gardens, it has the advantage of a 2.4m higher internal ceiling height. This compares to 2.1m high for the standard 2.5m high building.
Small but beautifully formed! This 3m x 2.5m garden Office built in Wokingham is ideal if you work from home. High levels of insulation make it ideal for year round use. All our buildings are bespoke so windows and doors positioned for the best outlook.
Built in Buckinghamshire, this flat fronted garden gym does not have a roof overhang, but the glazed section is recessed with outdoor recessed lights fitted above the doors / windows. We have installed a three sash bi-fold door to the right of three full height glazed panels. All in ‘oak’ UPVc.
This 5m x 3.5m x 2.5m high oak clad games room built in Reading. The front elevation has a full width bi-fold door (shown open) to give full access to the garden. No planning permission required.
Not only do we design and build bespoke garden rooms we also build and install interiors. These are a set of purpose built bookshelves.
The shelves described above were built for this garden office built in Wokingham as a permitted development. Doors are sliding partio doors with a full height glazed panel either side.
Another small bespoke garden gym built near Henley-on-Thames . Home to the famous Leander rowing club and Henley Royal Regatta, it is not surprising that it has been designed specifically for a rowing machine! Clad with shiplap timber painted seagrass blue.
We get involved with some of the best projects! This is a bespoke wine store with tasting room and w/c and shower. Built for Dropmore Vineyard in Berkshire it provides the perfect setting to impress new customers.
Much of our work is the refurbishment of existing outbuildings, and this is one. Built in Twickenham, this old brick outhouse was converted to a warm snug office with a spare bed for guests.
This garden office in Isleworth has a hipped slate roof and brick cladding on the front elevation to reflect the house. As with most home offices we installed CAT 5 cable for wifi connection.
This looks like a new build, but is in fact the refurbishment of an old garden room. Originally cold and damp, we insulated walls, floor and ceiling, damproofed drylined and skim plastered.
After installing a bar, fireplace, pool table, TV and dartboard it became the most popular room in the house!
More storage than garden room, this chalet style extension built onto the rear of an existing garage provides all the storage needed for a family at Henley on Thames.
We have built many gyms and saunas but not many Bikram Cabins! These are specialist rooms to exercise in hot humid temperatures, so include a sauna heater and lots of insulation. Built for a famous actor in his beautiful garden it was a pleasure to build.
This is the most exciting Pool House we have built. Housing a changing room, sauna, shower room, steam room and w/c it is a beautiful building complete with a thatched roof.
The sauna is finished in cool white wood and contrasting slate floor.
Again, built as a permitted development this 2.5m high garden room incorporating a kitchennette, shower room /wc and two large rooms has been built for flexibity and multiple uses. Plenty of glass gives great views down the garden and a feelng of space inside.
This stand alone sauna built in London has been designed to match the existing building seen in the foreground. Built of oak and cedar on hardwood decking it fits in perfectly at the end of an established garden with swimming pool.
Built in Kingston, this Garden Room is designed for a home office with perfect views across the garden. Built to reflect the black timber cladding on the house it is another example of how we work hard with clients to meet their expectations and wishes.
Not typical of our work, but a good example of our flexibility, this hipped roofed, oak framed structure was built near Slough to house a garden kitchen and outdoor entertaining area.
This 2.8m high garden gym required planning permission which was easily obtained via Hampshire County Council. The front elevation is recessed allowing lights controlled remotely from the house to be installed under the roof overhang. This is always a very popular feature.
Another example of our flexibility is this outdoor seating area and pool room. Built near Streatley on Thames it was designed largely by our client and built by us. Ceiling spotlights and LED lights flooding down the rear tiled wall makes it quite a spectacular place to sit at night.
This is the refurbishment of a very old timber framed outbuilding near Henley on Thames. Converted intio a self contained annexe, we retained all the original features including windows and cedar cladding.
The sloping roof is reflected in the sloping ceiling of the interior seen here. We installed a kitchen, w/c and shower room to make spacious accommodation and valuable asset to any property.
We don’t often install Scandinavian Log Cabins, but this project was interesting and built for a family needing more space for children. We also undertook the landscaping.
This looks like a new build,but is in fact the refurbishment of an old workshop in the garden of a London property. With potential for multiple uses, this continued life as a workshop.
This large 3m high garden office / annexe built in a garden in Henley on Thames is clad with hardwood iroko. The internal ceiling height is 2.8m so very high and spacious. It really is a ‘home in the garden’
Built in Weybridge Surrey, this 5m x 3m garden office is the perfect size for a large home office. It is one of our popular cedar clad designs with a recessed front elevation enabling outdoor lights to be installed beneath the roof overhang. Doors and windows are oak UPVc
This Buckinghamshire garden room, like many others, has an integral storage shed. Very useful and very popular to store all the garden tables and chairs, equipment, bikes and other bits and bobs we all accumulate. As with most, we clad the shed door with the same material as the of rest of the building, so as you can see in this photo, it is very difficult to see. To the far right of the front elevation – if it helps!
Another cinema/tv room in this building from East Mosley. We work with suppliers of sound and cinema systems to provide the best acousts possible. Cables and wires hidden in the walls during construction for a tidy uncluttered finish.
This is the building designed for the family cinema shown above. Full width bi-fold doors open up to make the most of the extra space created by the decking in front.
We can build and design garden rooms to your exact and prefered style. This one shows green doors and horizontally clad cedar. On the interior we had parquet flooring – it looked fabulous.
This is another small and unusual Garden Studio built near Wantage. An existing brick boundary wall provided the studio’s rear wall from which we built an oak and brick building. Walls are our standard timber frame and the bricks are ‘brick slips’, fixed to the front as you would bathroom tiles, and you really can’t tell it is not a brick built studio. An added feature to this is a small wood burning stove in the back corner – lovely and cosy.
Believe it or not, this is an old stable block! Redundent as far as horses are concerned but too useful to waste, so we were asked to convert it into a fully insulated garden studio / gym. It worked very well!
You can tell by the moss on the roof that this is a refurbishment! Concrete panel garage are so easy to convert into really useful, well insulated, cosy, dry rooms for whatever you might want them for. Panels can be removed to be replaced with doors and windows, and the whole thing has a new lease of life. This one from Maidenhead has been used as a gym / yoga room for a home fitness instructor.
At Caversham near Reading we combined a refurbishment with a new build garden gym. The building on the right is a new cedar clad gym built up against an existing garden wall – great for saving space. The building on the left is a refurbished brick built garage. With rebuilt roof, new damproofed floor and walls it became the perfect workshop / storage shed, while the exterior was clad to match the new build perfectly.
Nearly finished… This refurbished garage is going to be a library. Built in Oxford it will be the perfect reading room for a family of students and lecturers!Shelves made to measure.
This is a rather special garden gym with a special interior.
A full height vaulted ceiling with exposed rafters makes this a gym to be propud of! TV screens take the bordom off training!
We became ‘international’ with this garden room, complete with garden kitchen. It has a green sedum roof and is the only Garden Room we have built in Guernsey, the Channel Islands.
Lighting is always very important, and this annexe near Marlborough, Wiltshire shows why.
Another great example of effective lighting is this pool house we built near Wargrave.
This garden room built near Putney shows one of our alternatives to cedar cladding. ‘Brick slips’ are fixed to our standard timber frame building to give the appearance of a brick built structure. Their life-span is the same as bricks, and they look great!
Larger than most of our projects, this garage with gym has a tile roof and black painted featheredge timber cladding. Built near Windsor it replaced a similar building in too poor a condition to be repaired.
Another large building, this one a garage-cum-workshop. Now the home to some very lovely classic cars!
From large to small! This is a very interesting little building. Designed entirely for domestic storage, it is fully insulated and crammed with shelves and clothes hangers. With underfloor heating it keeps everything perfectly protected and dry – just like an indoors cupboard. With multipoint locking it is secure as well!
A long narrow garden office 8m long and 2.5m wide. It is 2.8m high, so needed planing permisison, but despite being narrow on the inside works very well as a home study. Lighting above the recessed corner section makes it very attractive in the evening.
Nearly finished. This is one of our Oak Framed Garden Rooms built in Berkshire. Constructed for clients with a listed property it had to comply with the necessary regulations, but makes a lovely space for use as an artists studio.
This very popular style of cedar clad, flat roofed garden room suits many of our customers perfectly. They are incredibly flexible and surprisingly big on the inside, so whether gym or office; music room or artist’s studio they can be adapted for whatever you want. And being flexible means that if you sell your house, prospective owners will view it as a valuable asset to be used in their own special way.
We have built several of these garden rooms with open fronted seating areas to one side. This one has a small office behind the french doors, and the ever popular storage shed behind the double door to the left. A well protected seating area positioned to catch the last of the evening sun makes a wonderful addition to your garden.
