Timber garden room

Bespoke Timber Garden Rooms & Outdoor Buildings

Do you need more space at home but don’t want the upheaval or expense of moving? If so, why not consider building a bespoke timber garden room? Not only are they a relatively inexpensive way to add extra space, they can also add extra value to your home.

Garden offices have become incredibly popular in recent times due to people working from home and needing that all-important extra space to retreat to. However, timber outdoor buildings are amazing for all sorts of different uses. Maybe you want a gym or a dance studio at home. Or maybe you need additional sleeping space for guests or a den for your ever-growing teenagers.

Whatever it is, we can design, construct and install something that will be both practical and beautiful, right in your backyard.

So, what’s entailed? Let us walk you through the process.

Creating a design that works for you

The first step is deciding on what your garden room will be used for. You don’t have to restrict yourself to one use though… you can choose from many versatile options that work as an office during the day and hangout space in the evening, for example. The possibilities are endless.

There are many off-the-shelf modular options for garden buildings, but if you cannot find the size or style you want, we offer a complete bespoke design, build and installation service. So, we can design your outdoor building from scratch, advising you along the way to help you make the choices that are right for your home.

Planning your timber garden building

Once you have identified what your garden building will be used for, you need to consider several factors in the planning phase:

Planning restrictions

While most timber garden rooms don’t need planning permission, they do need to comply with UK planning restrictions. Buildings that are closer than 2 metres to your boundary must be kept under 2.5 metres high, which usually means a flat-roof design. If you want a sloping or dual-pitched roof, your garden building will need to be more than 2 metres away from your boundary and have a maximum height of 2.5 metres at the eaves and 3 or 4 metres at the highest point, depending on the type of roof.


If you plan to use your garden room as an office all day every day, there will be different considerations than if it is more for occasional use. Where it lies in your garden is also a big factor. Do you want it in full sunlight or partially in the shade? Do you want to see it from your house?

Materials, look and style

Your timber building will be part of your garden, so you want it to look nice. You can also choose the type and colour of the wood, doors and windows. And then there’s the roof – sloped, flat, rubber-covered… or you could even go for an eco-friendly, living green roof!


If you plan to use your garden room as a study or office then you’ll need to consider power and internet services as a minimum. People often add in heating, plumbing and water too, especially if the room is going to provide extra living space.
