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 work from your garden room whether it be rain or shine. Completely sealed and insulated just like a room in your home, our garden rooms can be used during the freezing winter months, and during the pouring rain.

Follow your dreams and explore the potential of running your own home business from a home business suite by Green Retreats, the perfect garden office, garden studio or garden workshop.
Yes, we can install partition walls in any of our larger sized garden rooms. Please enquire for more details.
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.
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.
We offer a complete electrical connection from your house to the garden room at an additional cost, which will be confirmed at your design consultation. However, you are more than welcome to use your own preferred electrician for this.
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.
We offer two solutions for internet connectivity. The first is called ‘Home Plug’: Simply insert one of the plugs into a wall socket and connect the included patch cable into your home router, then insert the other plug into a wall socket in your garden room. This method sends your internet signal through the power network of your home and replicates your home Wi-Fi in your building.
The second solution is to run a full armoured CAT 6 network cable from the router in your house to the garden building. This will usually follow the same route as your main power cable and we can quote for this at your free design consultation.
Our windows and doors are double-glazed to BS7412 specification and feature tough Pilkington K double-glazing which is both safe and thermally efficient. All windows and doors are fitted with high security (insurance grade) multi-point locks and bolts with a 5-lever locking system.
As standard, all of our buildings are clad in maintenance-free Scandinavian Redwood. Also included are a 2.3m French or sliding door set and an opening lozenge window. We also include a choice of four flooring options, three double plug sockets, a choice of internal lighting, an external light, a 2-way consumer unit (fuse box) and a wall-mounted radiator.
We use a concrete pile foundation system. This comprises a series of piles in a grid system spanning the entire building. Our composite floor system is then laid on top of these. This is included in the cost of your building.
Our piles normally go to depths between 300mm and 600mm. The depth is assessed by the base team on the day of installation, and on some occasions due to ground composition the piles may be shallower or deeper.
