Width: 4.90m
Depth: 6.10m
Height: 2.49m
External Area: 29.89m2

This recently completed Garden Studio in West London ticks all the right boxes for flexible use. A space for an office, relaxation area, en-suite shower room and also a storage room too. Complete with a pressure treated decked area at the front of the Garden Studio, perfect for sitting and catching the summer sun throughout the day.

The Garden Studio took around 4 weeks to complete, where we looked after all aspects of the build – Including the concrete slab foundations, construction and glazing, right through to the plastering, flooring and decoration. We even installed the electricity, bathroom suite, as well as connected up to the mains water and drainage system.

As the customer wanted a shower and toilet installed, this Garden Room required building regulations to be signed off by build control. The customer also chose to upgrade to engineered oak flooring which was laid in the living and bathroom areas.

Features such as aluminium bi-folding doors, a matching roof trim and natural Western Red Cedar timber cladding complete the modern look. Our customers are delighted with their new Garden Room. Scroll below to see our video, floor plan and more images…

Multi-Use Garden Office built in Hertfordshire

Flat roof Garden Office built by Garden Lodges

Garden Office
Width: 3.36m
Depth: 4.66m
Height: 2.49m
External Area: 15.65m2

A Garden Office suitable for a multitude of uses and doesn’t require planning permission were the main aims for the Muggleton family in Hertfordshire. So we designed a 15.65m2 Garden Room with a flat roof design and UPVC glazing, under 2.49m in height.

The Garden Room will be used as an office during the weekdays, so internet connection was vital. At weekends the Garden Room becomes a hangout for the Muggleton’s teenage son and daughter, so enough room for large comfy beanbags and wipe clean laminate flooring for any spills was also required.

The Garden Office is suitable for all-year use, as we construct all of our Garden Buildings using structurally insulated panels (SIPs) – keeping you warm in the winter and cooler in the summer months. For extra security, obscured glass was installed to the two casement windows to the side and rear of the Garden Room.

Our UPVC French doors and fixed frame windows that you can see either side of the entrance are also really insulated for both sound and to the elements. So if the teenagers decide to play loud music, it won’t bother the neighbours.

Al of our Garden Offices come fully plastered and painted in matt white emulsion as standard, as well as chrome down lights and finished in Western Red Cedar timber panels. Our prices are all-inclusive, so they include everything from the foundations, laminate flooring, decoration and the fitting of the electrics.

Non-Planning Garden Office – a Perfect Fit in West Sussex

Garden Office Horsham
Garden Office recently constructed in West Sussex

Width: 2.48m
Depth: 2.48m
Height: 2.49m
External Area: 6.15m2 including recess

The Midwood family wanted a low-cost Garden Room to use as a Garden Office, which was built quickly so that they could use it as soon as possible to work in. The flat roof Garden Studio measures 2.48m x 2.48m and is under 2.49m, so in this instance, did not require planning permission.

The customer was interested in a standard non-planning range, particularly the O-Line model. Built in just 2 weeks, we looked after everything from the foundations to the construction, plastering, painting, lighting and laminate flooring.

We also installed the electric armoured cable and internet connection via a CAT 5 cable, which ran from the main home to the Garden Room. The Garden Office was large enough to fit an office desk, chair and storage unit, and still had enough space to fit in more furniture, if required.

Our prices include:

  • Foundations.
  • Construction using SIPs.
  • UPVC sliding doors.
  • Painted wood finish.
  • White gloss skirting boards.
  • White matt emulsion decoration.
  • Laminate floor.
  • RCD breaker.
  • Internal wall lights.
  • Single light switch.

He shed… She shed… Naming your garden room

‘She Shed’ was coined in April 2015 to describe a wooden structure used as a retreat for its female owner. The term was first used in the fun article on “The Lighter Side of Real Estate” called “Introducing “She Sheds”: Women’s Answer To The Man Cave”.

The term ‘Man Cave’ has come to be known as a place where the male owner can go to enjoy his favourite activities away from day to day life. ‘She Shed’ has come to be the term used for the equivalent for women, and ladies looking for somewhere special we have been busy sharing lovely examples of ‘She Sheds’ online.

‘She Shed’ isn’t one of our favourite names, garden rooms are so much more than sheds. Whilst reading through some of the commentary on the latest ‘She Shed’ trend we have come across some great names, which could be considered instead of ‘She Shed’.

‘Shedquearters’ – for a garden office, we love this! Also someone suggested ‘Snuggery’, commenting on the Houzz article on ‘She Sheds’. The Houzz user explains why they like this gender neutral suggestion, conveying a warm and cosy place for relaxation. Another reader comments “I might call mine an ‘Imaginarium’” we loved this too!

For our customers, ‘garden buildings’ is popular name, ‘garden studios’ and ‘garden office’ are also frequently used. Many of our customers call their building an ‘annexe’, other names reflect the usage of the space, gym, dance studio, yoga studio, play room, etc.

Whatever your preferred name for your garden room, we thought this was a great opportunity to scan our archives to find some of our favourite buildings a.k.a. ‘She Sheds’ constructed for female clients. We have designed some wonderful rooms for female owners, the majority have been designed to enable the owner of the ‘She Shed’ to work from home. Another popular choice for our female clients has been for a studio for practical work, such as painting, sculpture, upcycling and much more.

Garden Studio with Sedum Roof Completed in Winchester

Garden Studio Winchester
Garden Studio with Sedum Roof completed in Winchester

We’ve just finished a stunning new Garden Studio in Winchester for a customer who wanted a flexible garden room, where they could use it as an arts and crafts room, reading room, garden office and even an extra guest room, if needed.

We worked alongside the customer’s garden landscaper so that the setting of the Garden Studio was also beautiful. Choosing a Western Red Cedar timber clad exterior was the best choice for the Garden Room to fit in with its natural surroundings.

Our customer chose to upgrade their glazing to aluminium and lighting to a wireless control. For extra insulation and an eye-catching, ecological design feature, we also fitted a Sedum roof which has many positive benefits.

Powder coated aluminium floor to ceiling and casement windows and bi-folding doors were installed to give a premium look and feel to the Garden Studio. Benefits of choosing aluminium door and window frames are that the joinery is extra strong and weather resistant compared to UPVC, as well as being more aesthetically pleasing.
