Outbuildings are a popular home addition that is becoming increasingly common within residential properties. If you’re looking at ways to extend your home, an outbuilding could be an ideal solution. Providing such a vast amount of additional space, you can use our products for a range of different purposes. Whether you need new office space, a dance studio or even extra living space – we can help.
Our garden room buildings cater to such a broad audience due to their versatility, and they can be customised and tailored for any purpose. We can even install partition walls to break your room up for different purposes, consider options like a home gym with a shower room.
As a lone-standing product, outbuildings are ideal for anyone looking to not only increase space available at home but also to add privacy. Located in your garden, outbuildings provide the luxury of having your personal space where you can retreat whenever needed. We offer various building finishes and styles to suit every home type. Whether you’re looking for something modern, or a traditional log cabin-like design, we have something for everyone. With the unpredictable UK weather, it is imperative to customers that their space will last, and is built to withstand the harsh elements. Our materials are all high-quality with immense durability, ensuring quality and longevity of your outbuilding.

Benefits of a Outbuilding
Our fully insulated buildings mean that they can be used year-round, keeping you cool during those summer months and toasty during the winter.
Due to the construction and design of our buildings, they can be used for a multitude of purposes, giving you the choice of how you use it.
With family homes growing ever smaller, a separate outbuilding in the garden frees up more valuable space in the house without taking space away through extending.
SPACE FOR THE KIDS
Create a separate area in the outbuilding and teach kids responsibility with a space that feels like their own. Turn it into an adults-only space once they’ve gone to bed.

WHY A WOODEN OUTBUILDING?
With so many different ways to extend your home, why should you choose a wooden outbuilding? We believe in total transparency with our customers, especially with pricing. All of our buildings are priced using the internal footprint. We have price grids on our website for customers to look through to show starting costs for our varying building sizes.
We also include everything needed to get your space up and running as soon as it is complete. This includes heating, insulation, lighting, doors, windows and much much more. Not only this, but base installation and VAT will also be included in your building quote.
OUR OUTBUILDING SIZES
We aim to provide a seamless process from start to finish. Our buildings are constructed from sustainable or locally sourced materials at our factory. Every building we install is carefully insulated for use all year-round.
If you have any questions at any point during your process with Green Retreats, our friendly team are always on hand to help!
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.
Yes, they are warm enough to use throughout the year as they are all well insulated and come with a wall-mounted radiator as standard.
Yes, you can. We will liaise with a plumber to ensure that any necessary openings are in place, ready for the plumber to connect the required services.
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 to building regulations.
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 do not offer bespoke building options. However, we do offer many different sizes and styles to suit your tastes and budget. You can start to design your building using our visualiser.
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.
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.
Yes, all of our buildings come as standard with a free-standing oil-filled radiator. We also offer a variety of heating options including wall-mounted radiators, underfloor heating and air conditioning.
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 and are double backed for optimum performance. 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.
