Garden Room Installation | How long does it take to build?

21st March 2022

Considering and planning your garden room is an exciting feeling and there is no doubt your first question is “how long will a garden room installation take?”. We aim to make the process as stress-free and as simple as possible for our customers, yet ensuring you receive a high-quality garden room that meets all your needs and expectations.

At Green Retreats, we pride ourselves on the ability to design and develop your garden room perfectly bespoke to you. So, once you have created your final design with our team, it is also important to consider the timelines to build each additional feature you may have added which can typically contribute to the installation period.
