Home Photography Studio
Thinking about starting your own business with a home photography studio?
Our garden buildings are the perfect way to create extra space at home, expertly suited for your home business needs.
Working from home and having your own business opens up so many opportunities. Being free to pursue your passion professionally has great financial benefits, as well as giving you the freedom to create your perfect work/life balance.
Creating a professional workspace for your business can be difficult, especially if you are trying to work from home. Just imagine, bringing customer’s through the privacy and bustle of your home to a spare room in the house – doesn’t paint the picture of a professional outfit.
A garden building from Green Retreats has proven to be an expert solution for a quality home photography studio. Our buildings are a complete product with no hidden extras or costs.
Cost-effective, rarely needing planning permission and installed in just 2-5 days – meaning starting your home business might be more achievable than you think!

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.
WORK FROM HOME WITH A HOME PHOTOGRAPHY STUDIO
To make a success of your home business, you need to be sure that your working environment is conducive to a productive day. A garden building helps to give the perfect work-life balance.
Being able to close the doors and walk away at the end of the day is a blessing that those of us who have worked from home before will appreciate.
What’s more, our buildings are fully-insulated to the same high standards are a modern home, making them warm and dry all-year-round. As well as being fully insulated in the walls, roof and floor, we also include a radiator in the price of every building.
Your business can also run at any time of day that suits you too, with interior and exterior lighting included in the price.
QUALITY AT EVERY CORNER
Your photography studio building will be a lasting investment into your home and lifestyle.
Every building from Green Retreats comes with a comprehensive 10 year guarantee and is designed for a 30 year life. What’s more, each building is completely maintenance free, giving you one less thing to worry about.
We design and build our garden studios ourselves, using only premium grade materials for a superior result. Most of our building materials are sourced from within the UK too.
BUILT WITH CARE TO THE ENVIRONMENT
We are green! We take our responsibility to the environment very seriously. Our factory and offices are completely carbon neutral and we contribute zero waste to landfill.
Where possible, we also use recycled or second-life materials in our construction where quality is not compromised. Find out more about how we care for our environment…
Yes, we can install partition walls in any of our larger sized garden rooms. Please enquire for more details.
Underfloor heating can be installed as an optional extra, however the heat retention properties of the floor in all of our garden rooms are so efficient, that it is not essential.
We are only able to construct buildings that are either square or rectangular within the Green Retreats range.
Our garden rooms must be free-standing due to the nature of their construction, meaning we cannot build them as a ‘lean-to’ extension. However, our construction methods mean that 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.
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.
We use the industry’s leading providers for our insulation and double-glazing for excellent thermal retention.
The floor and roof panels are filled with market-leading high-density polyurethane insulation.
Our highly efficient walls are filled with A* fire-rated natural Rockwool insulation and engineered with a layer of PhotonWrap multi-foil, an air-open reflective insulating breather membrane.
All windows and doors are fitted with Pilkington K™ Optiwhite double glazing. Our double glazing is 28mm thick as standard and 28.6mm for our acoustic pack.
To order a building we simply require a £200 holding deposit to secure your installation date. Your £200 remains refundable until 8 weeks prior to your chosen base installation date.
8 weeks prior to your base installation date you pay 50% of the balance, which allows us to put your building into production. Upon build completion and sign off, we will require the remaining balance.
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 an wall-mounted radiator.
