Benefits of adding a garden building to your property
Adding a garden building to your property can offer a multitude of benefits. Firstly, it provides a versatile and adaptable space that can be customised to meet your specific needs and lifestyle. Whether you’re seeking a home office, gym, studio, or simply a tranquil escape, a garden building can serve as an ideal solution. With our skilled design and construction team, we can assist you in creating a garden building that not only satisfies your practical requirements but also complements your home’s style and aesthetic.
In addition to this, a garden building can enhance the value of your property. As an independent structure, it increases your usable living area without the cost and inconvenience of a conventional extension. Moreover, it adds an attractive and functional feature that can enhance the overall appeal of your garden.
Furthermore, choosing a garden building means you have the opportunity to personalise the space to reflect your individual tastes and preferences. With a diverse range of materials, finishes, and features to choose from, you can create a garden building that is entirely unique and personal to you.
Garden Building uses
Our garden buildings are ideal for home studios. Whether you’re an artist in need of a private studio to work in or a musician who needs a place to practice at any volume without disturbing your neighbours. We can construct a bespoke garden building to meet your desires for creativity.
Whether you’re working from home or running your own business, a garden office gives a peaceful and productive space to concentrate, away from home distractions. Today, working from home has several advantages. More time for family and leisure activities, quality workspaces, and cost savings all contribute to better mental and physical health. What could possibly be better than having a garden-building home office?
TV room and Games Room
At the end of the day or week, what happens to home offices? Many, as we’ve discovered, transform into excellent family spaces. Huge TV or projector displays create spaces for gaming, TV, or even home movies. Your family space is kept at a pleasant temperature thanks to the excellent insulation in our garden buildings. They also have low operating costs. In actuality, heat will be held in after your workday is over.
A granny annexe can be built for less money than moving or constructing a conventional home extension. Because it is constructed apart from your primary property and is insulated to residential standards, a garden building is the perfect place to host guests, your in-laws or parents, or rent out a room to earn additional cash. You will save time and money by not having to find temporary lodging throughout the development phase, and you won’t have to worry about dusty or noisy construction sites disrupting your daily routine. Please be aware that you might require planning approval if you want to live or sleep in your garden building.
Garden Building FAQ
This is really easy. Simply a garden building suitable in size for both uses and an external door into each. Then build an internal wall and save money by not plastering the shed area. A neat and tidy way to solve two problems.
If you want an occasional-use structure, then a lower-cost and lesser insulated building may suffice. If you plan to use it year-round, then invest in a building with good insulation and low-cost appliances as both will help recoup your investment. If noisy inside or need to be very quiet inside, then consider upgrading the acoustic insulation. We recommend a physical Cat 6 internet supply over less reliable WiFi.
Most buildings less than 2.5m high can be within 2 meters of a boundary without considering planning. As well as ‘kerb appeal’ of the front facade, consider the view out and how the sun can affect glare and heat ingress inside.
Up to 30 square meters of floor area usually does not need permission. Up to half the area of a garden.
Some are. Look for timbers from sustainable sources, the best insulation in walls, windows and doors and general quality that will ensure the building lasts. Modern base systems such as ground screws and pads can help avoid the movement of many tonnes of waste moved from site and new materials arriving. More locally sourced materials and recycling of waste materials will help reduce your carbon footprint too.
Non-treated and cheap timber structures with poor insulation sat directly upon non-insulated concrete can attract dampness that will start rot and reduce a building’s useful life to a few years. Quality insulated and ventilated structures can last as long as a brick-built house. Like the Elizabethans, Georgians and Victorians, many of their good designs and quality timber-framed buildings still exist today.
Convection electrical heaters create instant heat whilst underfloor and radiators are slower to heat up. Forget gas appliances as regulation changes will outdate these. Log burners look great and need to be professionally installed.
Electrics can be connected but your existing home consumer unit (fuse box) will need to meet current Building Regulations and be up to the task. Water and waste can be installed but this could require a pump due to distance and the need for Building Regulations for the structure.
Now that’s a question with no simple answer. Simple being key. A low-cost building with less insulation and features will cost from £3000 but will not last as long as a high-quality building. Installation fees will vary depending on attention to detail and the type of base you require, as will internal and external finishing details. We offer one timber that costs twice as much as a cheap version and we have another that costs five times as much. With so many variations, we recommend that you budget between £1000 and £2000 per square meter of the base. Bi-fold doors, roof lights and interior fittings can push this higher.
This differs considerably. A solid building capable of meeting Building regulations will be known to stand up to the test of strong winds and snow loading that our weather often brings. Lessor buildings may suffer from a movement that presents itself as cracks on internal corners and joints.
This means minimal waste as fewer materials are used meaning there’s less to deliver, resulting in a quick, clean site build.
Insulation at its best
Our walls contain up to 20 times the insulation of other buildings for lower heating bills.
Wood be good
Our refined methods allow us to keep timber use to a minimum. All materials are separated and recycled, with as little as one rubble sack of waste per order.
Using British Made and local materials allows us to reduce the carbon footprint of materials whilst supporting our economy.
