We have developed a range of buildings that can be used as a permanent living solution called The Annex. These buildings may look a little bit like the Green Retreats garden buildings but are actually made entirely differently to be a ‘proper’ house. The Annex buildings comply with building regulations and are signed off by building control. They also come complete with kitchens and bathrooms as well as plumbing.

Whether you’re looking for something more compact and cosy, or a large open space – we have something for everyone.
All of our building sizes are based on internal footprint measurements to allow customers to start planning their space layout and get an idea on the actual useable space they are adding.


Our buildings are crafted using only premium sustainable and locally sourced materials for a superior finish. Every building comes with a comprehensive 10-year guarantee for quality, and are designed for a 30 year life.

Fully insulated to be as warm, dry and comfortable as a room inside your home. Find out more about our construction methods…

Our Transparent Pricing

We include everything needed to get your building up and running within your quoted price – including base installation and VAT. As well as this you will receive a french sliding door set, flooring, plug sockets and much more to get you started as soon as construction finished.

Built to last, our buildings are suited for all year round. Meaning you can exercise at the comfort of your home whether it be rain or shine – no need for trips to the gym in the rain! Completely sealed and insulated just like a room in your home, our products can be used during the freezing winter months, and during the pouring rain.

garden office ideas


Yes, they are warm enough to use throughout the year as they are all well insulated and come with a free-standing oil filled radiator as standard.

Yes, we can install partition walls in any of our larger sized garden rooms. Please enquire for more details.

Our garden rooms are not designed to be lived in as they do not comply to building regulations. If you would like to live in a garden room, The Annex is part of The Green Retreats Group and offers garden annexes with full planning permission, which comply with building regulations.

Whilst our garden rooms are temporary structures and are moveable. It is worth considering that the costs to move a building is chargeable to you and can equate to an amount that does not make moving the building viable.

Our garden room structures will need to remain free-standing due to the nature of their construction. However, we can build as close as 400mm to any solid obstacle, such as your house.

We are only able to construct buildings that are either square or rectangular within the Green Retreats range.

We don’t offer a completely soundproof solution for your garden room. We do, however, offer an acoustic pack which reduces the transfer of sound to approximately -45db – however, this is not ‘soundproof’. Although we use industry-leading acoustically laminated glass, this is the least effective component of our acoustic pack. Please bear in mind that the more glass you opt for in your garden room, the lesser the effect the acoustic pack will have.

Planning permission is not normally required as our buildings fall under permitted development (built under 2.5m high externally). Most houses, even in conservation areas and areas of outstanding natural beauty (AONB), have permitted development rights. Flats and listed buildings have no permitted development rights, so will always need planning permission. Don’t worry though, as planning is a relatively simple process for our garden rooms and we are on-hand to help with this process.

If you are looking to install a bathroom or other facility that would require water to your building, we would be happy to liaise with your plumber of choice to ensure they are comfortable carrying out all plumbing work required to and from the building.
