FAQs Garden Rooms


We are sure you have lots of questions regarding our Garden Rooms and we have tried to answer most of them here, however if there is anything you wish to know please call or drop us an email and we will get straight back to you.


Why are your Garden Rooms superior to other cheaper versions on the market?

Our Garden Rooms are manufactured from Scandinavian slow grown Redwood Pine. It is a very dense sap rich wood which retains warmth very well and because its 120 years old it does not buckle, twist or split like some of the other types of wood used by our competitors.


We only use commercial grade roofing shingle that is designed to contract and expand in varying temperatures. It has a 40 year manufacturers guarantee. Click here for more information. Our garden rooms are also highly insulated click here for more information.


Where can I see one of your Garden Rooms?

We have a BBQ Cabin and one of our Garden Rooms in our showroom located here we would love to show you around and if our opening times don't suit just give us a call and we will arrange a time more convenient to you.


Do I need Planning Permission for a BBQ Cabin?

In most cases you do not need planning permission as our Garden Rooms are under 4m high, however we do advise you to check with your local planning authority.


What type of base do I need?

A concrete or timber base needs to be in place before the Garden Room can be erected. This is something we can provide for you at an extra cost or you may prefer a local builder to quote you for the work.


How much maintenance does the Garden Room require?

We recommend that you protect the outside of your Garden Room initially with at least 2 coats of Sovereign or any major wood preserve and then an annual coat thereafter.The flooring can be protected with either a paint or stain for easier cleaning, or you may wish to use rugs or carpet.We advise leaving the interior walls natural to allow the wood to breath.


Can I build my Garden Room myself?

We employ our own teams of expert fitters who will erect your Garden Room in only 1 day and building it yourself would invalidate any Manufacturers Warranty that we give.
