Why a garden office hasn’t just to be a place of work

 

When you first think of a garden office, you may imagine somewhere where someone is hard at work writing emails, working on Excel spreadsheets, or simply writing a business plan.

However, a garden office can be used for so much more. A garden building allows you to build a fully detached wooden structure, often away from your home. This means that some customers may want to use the room as a music room to play their favourite records. Alternatively, you may want to use part of the room as your place of solace to unwind while reading a good book.
So, why not split your garden office into two parts: a place to unwind and listen to music, perhaps, and a place to work?

 

Two rooms in one

Many people like to have two rooms within a garden office, one that’s solely used as their place of work, another which is used to unwind, perhaps to play retro arcade games or watch a film.

For a minimal expense, we can build an internal wall, plus a door, so you gain two rooms within your garden office.

 

Outdoor space

What’s great about hiring Kingsley to build your garden office is that we can completely transform your garden if you would like to hire us for this landscaping work. Often, therefore, customers hire us to build raised decking. The decking boards are either made from composite or softwood. This creates a perfect outdoor seating area—somewhere to enjoy a nice bottle of chilled wine after work, perhaps?

Therefore, we can build the decking and a new pathway leading up to the garden room, enhancing your whole garden.

 

Keeping fit

Even the most committed gym-goers have days where they say, you know what, I am not going this evening; I fancy a bit of television and chocolate.

The thought of having to drive to a local gym in Bristol on a cold winter’s night can lead many people to say, “I will go tomorrow instead.”

But what about if you have some excellent gym equipment that you like to use, all within your garden office? Therefore, one side of the room could be a dedicated area to improving your fitness. The area could be air-conditioned, so even on a hot summer’s day in glorious Bristol city, you could improve your strength or get fitter on your exercise bike.

Therefore, we can build a garden office, where the internal rooms are constructed to have one side used as an office and the other as a garden gym.

 

Can be used 365 days of the year

Here in Great Britain, our weather can sometimes change in the blink of an eye. One minute, a nice, warm summer breeze can flow through the garden; the next, a heavy downpour accompanied by gusts of wind.

Our summers can be boiling hot, and our winters are the complete opposite. Now, this is worth bearing in mind when buying a garden room from any company. The reason for that is simple: You want a garden office you can use at any time of year.

You don’t want a garden room that cant be used in the winter months because it too cold. So, when you hire us, we have builders who will hand cut panel insulation, and place this between the timbers in the roof, in the floor, in the side walls.

This type of insulation is very high quality, it helps keep warm air in, cold air out, through having a reflective foil coating and a thick layer of insulating warm.

 

Good lighting

When you’re working at your desk, some people might work in their garden office for more than 8 hours daily. Somebody is about to start a new business venture in Bristol; they could be working much longer hours.

So, you have to think about how you can reduce eye strain.

One way to do this is to have good lighting and large bi-folding doors, complete with blinds inside the doors. Or you could have a good-quality Velux roof light installed within the roof, allowing light to come down and light up the room.

 

Are you able to build an eco-friendly garden room?

When you see all the building materials laid out to build a single garden room, you may well be surprised as to how much wood, glass and rubber is used to make the roofs.

This is why its so important that as a construction company, we purchase FSC timber, and that we buy high quality building materials, that last longer, therefore needing to be replaced less.

This is why when many homeowners are on Google looking for “eco-friendly” garden rooms we are often the company that, gets hired.

 

Here are just some of the ways we can make your garden room more eco-friendly:

– Green living room (great for insects and wildlife)
– Solar panels
– Rain water harvesting
– Composite cladding and decking that’s made from recycled materials

 

Focal point?

Perhaps your home in the West Country looks out over meadows, trees, or a lovely slow-moving river. What is great about choosing our local garden room company is that our buildings are not flat-pack, so the customer can specify how large the windows are and where they should be placed. You can also have floor-to-ceiling windows that let in a lot of light.

 

What size garden offices can you build?

We can build huge garden offices that are so compact they fit into the corner of your garden and do not take up much space at all. Our garden offices range in price, with a starting price of 18k. It’s clear why so many people e-mail and call Kingsley daily to get a well-built, brilliant garden room built by our business.

What makes your company’s summerhouses superior to some other wooden buildings?

 

Summerhouses in Bristol

 

Introduction

Many gardens in Britain don’t get used much during the winter. During the summer, the homeowner might just have a garden bench or, let’s say, a patio and chairs to sit on.

However, what many people now want is a comfortable room, perhaps with a 3-piece sofa, television, and coffee table so that they can spend time in their garden, yet they have the comfort they have while they are sitting in their house. This is why so many residents in Bristol call us to build a bespoke summerhouse so that the homeowner can enjoy spending time in their garden right throughout the different seasons.

 

Why should we hire you to supply and build our new summerhouse?

We have already built many garden buildings. We are chosen because our buildings are bespoke. We come out and have a conversation with the customer about what they would like to use the building for.

If the room is going to be used as a garden bar, we can build a bar area for the customer. If it is going to be used as a place of work, the customer might want air conditioning, more power sockets, and large bi-folding doors to let more light into the room.

 

Could you provide some information about your experience in installing foundations for summerhouses?

We offer two main types of foundations for your garden room; these include ground screws, which are the cheaper option. We can also build a solid concrete base, but this will be more expensive simply because concrete is more expensive. For the vast majority of garden bars, garden offices, and garden gyms we build, usually, the customer will opt to have the foundations made from ground screws.

The price difference between having ground screws and having a concrete base is vast; this is why the customer often opts for ground screws. They provide a solid base when installed correctly. Therefore, the customer receives a strong foundation for the garden room to be built, yet this can be obtained for a fraction of the price of concrete.

Are you able to install all of the electrics for us?

Yes, we can install the electrics for you, from LED lights in the decking to dimmer switches and power sockets in the garden room.
Can you build a low-maintenance summerhouse?

Yes, we can; we understand that the customer might be a busy professional; therefore, during the summer, they won’t have the time to apply varnish or oil to the outside of the building. Thus, when our sales representative comes and meets with you, we can offer recommendations for different types of low-maintenance cladding. We can provide steel cladding, or we would highly recommend getting composite cladding. This type of cladding comes in a massive range of colours and can even look similar to wood, but the best part is it doesn’t need painting.

 

How large can the building be?

We can build the garden building to any size the customer would like, including any width and any length.

We can also build the garden room in any shape you like. For example, you might want a square, rectangular, or perhaps even circular garden building.

What’s the starting price for a new summerhouse?

The starting price for our garden rooms is just 18k. At this moment, we do not offer finance on our summerhouses.

Can we add a green roof?

Yes, we can. We can offer a quote to build a green roof on top of your garden room. This can look amazing in the summer. You could grow different plants, which is great for wildlife and insects.

 

Can we use solar panels?

Many customers are concerned about the running costs of getting a new garden room built. Mostly, the concerns are about the increase in electricity that the building will use. Therefore, to offset some of this use, we could install solar panels and an inverter. We have qualified electricians who can do this work for you.

What type of doors can we have fitted to our summerhouse?

We can fit bi-folding aluminium doors, which are the most popular type. These are premium options, and we think they are the best. If the customer wants to spend less, we can offer UPVC doors and windows.

Can you build a patio/decking in front of the building?

Yes, we can. We can build a patio made from a range of different stones or decking made from softwood or composite.

 

Why not call our sales team today?

If you are thinking of getting a wooden summerhouse built in either of the cities of Bath or perhaps in Bristol, then do give us a call today. We can come out and meet you and offer you a free quotation. We build garden bars, offices, and gyms; if you would like a quote, call us today.

Did you know that we exclusively build garden buildings in Bath, England?

 

Introduction

Our company, based in Bristol, is renowned for crafting quality insulated garden buildings. What many may not realise is that we also serve Bath, constructing a variety of garden rooms each year. We believe it’s important to share why so many Bath residents choose us for their garden structures, whether it’s a gin bar or an insulated corner garden office.

 

Why is your company so popular when it comes to building garden rooms?

The main reason for our popularity is our long-standing presence. We haven’t just appeared overnight and started advertising on social media that we can build a garden room in your area.

Our buildings are not just structures, they are investments in quality and durability. Unlike mass-produced summerhouses, which are stapled together and then flat-packed and sent to the customer for them to assemble themselves, our buildings are meticulously crafted, insulated, and built to last. And for your peace of mind, we offer a long-guaranteed period on our buildings.

 

So, what type of garden buildings can you build?

Our garden rooms are used for a massive range of different purposes, from a place where a company director can sit and complete some work for their business to a room that’s a dedicated vodka bar.

Whether our garden buildings are going to be used as a place of work or somewhere to unwind after a super busy day, every building that we construct is very well built. We employ experienced carpenters, electricians, and joiners. This means that your garden room hasn’t just got to be an empty room with freshly plastered walls.

Instead, our construction company can install a bathroom or a kitchen, install the flooring, and bring in painters and decorators to decorate the room for you.

 

What is the starting price of a garden office/room to be built in Bath, West England?

Our construction company’s starting price for building an insulated garden office or room is 18k. We can then offer many extras if you want those installed in your garden room. For example, we offer air-conditioning, solar panels, or composite decking to be built out the front of your garden room.

 

We want a garden room built, but can it be used in the winter when it’s really cold?

Some people have a common misconception when purchasing a summerhouse: it can only be used during warmer weather. This is true for some buildings if they are not correctly insulated.

Some garden buildings are wooden sheds with OSB boarding and no insulation. This is no good, as here in Britain, as we all know, our winters can get mighty cold. So, you will need insulation, not just on the side walls but also on the roof and the flooring. So, when you hire Kingsley, you will hire a construction company that will ensure that we add insulation throughout your garden building.

This means that whether you want to use the building on a nice warm sunny day in July or you want to use the building in December, our buildings can be used even if it is cold outside. Plus, because we employ electricians, our electricians can install the electric radiators for you. What’s great about this is that our customers in North Somerset really like that we supply a brand of electric radiator that can be switched on remotely from your smartphone.

So, let’s say you’re meeting with friends in Bath city centre and ask your partner if you’d like a drink in the garden room when you return.

Then, remotely from your smartphone, whether it’s Android or Apple, you can simply switch the heating on. By the time you get back home, the garden room will be nice and warm, ready for you to enjoy that bottle of wine back at the house.

 

Has your summerhouse/garden room company built many wooden buildings in North Somerset?

We most definitely have; we have built many garden rooms right across North Somerset. Most of the buildings we construct monthly are used as a place of work. More people than ever are now working from home; therefore, these customers want a well-insulated, well-built room that they can use throughout the year. Because our buildings come crammed with so much insulation, such as panel insulation, this insulation helps to keep the building cooler in the summer and keep the warm air in during the winter.

 

How do we arrange to obtain a quote?

We have estimators working six days a week offering quotes across North Somerset. So, we can come out and offer you a quote, and a time that best suits you.

Call us today, and we can arrange a time to come and offer you a free quote.

 

Garden Room Bar | We build garden bars / Gin bars across South West

 

Bespoke Garden Room Bars

Would you like a garden room bar/gin garden bar built this summer, 2024?

 

 

Perhaps you would like a garden building created that looks like an authentic English pub when you walk inside. Your garden bar, therefore, has a dart board, English ales on draft and also comfy Chesterfield sofas.

Instead, you might enjoy drinking luxurious British made gin’s or vodka and want to dedicate the whole room to these quality spirits?

Therefore, you might have a luxury bar built by Kingsley Build so that you have hundreds of bottles of gin.

Therefore, these buildings make great places to socialise and have your family and friends over to throw a party.

We can install a quality sound system, which can be integrated into the ceiling so that you can play your favourite music late into a summers evening.

Our builders can build an outdoor seating area with glass balustrades raised from the garden level could also be created, offering a place to enjoy a refreshing drink.

 

Can we use this garden bar / garden room right throughout the year? Will it be fully insulated?

It can sometimes seem that our summers are all over, and done and dusted in the blink of an eye and that we are back to wet and cold British weather.

Therefore, homeowners want the reassurance that when they purchase a garden bar from Kingsley, it can be used during the autumn and the winter months as well, so that you are not just purchasing a building that can only be used for a few months a year.

Our garden buildings can be used all year around

 

 

So if it’s cold and drizzling outside in the middle of winter, you only have to walk into a Kingsley-built garden room and it will be nice and warm inside once the heating has been switche don. Because we use quality insulation (we can use panel insulation, fibreglass or sheep’s wool insulation), you can therefore pop on the heating inside, and in a short period, your garden bar will start to warm up and be nice and cosy inside.

 

What are the main benefits of purchasing a garden bar?

Most rooms within people’s houses serve a practical purpose, such as being a kitchen, a bedroom or a living room. However, purchasing a garden bar can become your place to unwind; you can fill it with the things you enjoy, perhaps a jukebox with Elvis Presley songs on? Perhaps someone to enjoy drinking whiskey, perhaps somewhere to paint an oil painting? So you keep your canvasses in there?

 

Do you enjoy playing snooker?

You may want to have a full-size snooker table fitted within your garden room? We can build a garden room large enough for you to play snooker in.

 

 

Perhaps you like to watch films, then we can build a cinema garden room for you.

Pool table/garden room

Many people have garden rooms so that they can have a full-size pool table installed within the building.

Then you can listen to your favourite music while playing pool with your friends.

 

 

Can you build an area outside the garden bar that can be used as a seating area?

We have built a huge amount of composite decking, infront of garden rooms.

So we can build large area infront of your garden bar that can be used as seating area, great for enjoying wine with friends during the summer.

The decking could have glass balustrades surround the composite decking, and it could have composite steps leading up to the decking.

 

Are the garden bars you build bespoke?

When a customer, let’s say in Bath, England, wants to have a garden bar built, it might be very different from the design the next customer wants built. Every week, our builders are therefore building, very different garden rooms. Some are huge buildings, with multiple rooms inside, however some garden buildings we build, are used as places to work in, and sometimes are small buildings.

 

We can build any size of garden room

One customer might want a small room built the corner of the garden; this might be used as a place to go down and have a pint of English ale and perhaps catch up with a friend on the decking.

Another customer might want to push the boat out and have a huge garden bar, a huge area decked with composite decking, we can also build large garden rooms.

Are you able to install the electrics into our garden bar for us?

Sometimes, some customers require a considerable amount of electrics and wiring to be installed in a garden bar; for example, there might be underfloor heating, LED spotlights, speakers, surround sound systems, lighting in a decking, there might be solar panels added to the roof and much more.

Therefore, hiring a separate electrical contractor to do all this work can be quite expensive. However, we can take care of all this work for you, and this work can be included in our quote.

So, for example, when you tell our estimator that you want LED spotlights fitted, surround-sound speakers, and lighting in the decking, they will listen to this and include that in our quotation that we will email to you.

 

Do you only build garden bars in set sizes? Or can you build a bespoke garden room?

Some garden room companies pre-make the buildings within a factory, for example on an industrial estate in Bristol. Then, they might tell the customer they have four different-sized garden bars to choose from.

So, as a customer, you might be limited to what size garden rooms some companies can offer.

However, our business is completely different. We build bespoke garden bars, meaning that you can specify the exact width and length of the garden room you want built. Our builders also can build any shape garden bar, whether its rectangular, we could even build a circular garden room.

The building is, therefore, 100% bespoke.

 

Can you take care of all the groundworks for us, such as digging the trenches and building the foundations?

Yes, we can, whether it’s installing the water pipe or waste pipe or perhaps levelling the ground with a mini excavator we can offer to do all of the groundworks. We can undertake all of this work in Bristol for you, and we will include it in our quote.

 

Our garden room company can therefore, offer to do the following groundworks in Bristol when building a summerhouse:
– Build the foundations
– Dig the trenches for the waste pipe / water supply
– Level the ground and remove any excess soil

 

Will we need to seek planning permission from Bristol City Council before the garden room is built?

For most of the garden bars we are building around and in Bristol, quite often, the garden buildings will not require planning permission to be sought from Bristol City Council. However, before that assumption is made, you do need to speak to one of our team or a qualified architect to see whether planning permission is needed or not.

We or your chosen architect will advise you whether, in your particular circumstances, planning permission is required or not.

It is sometimes the case that some garden buildings will require planning permission to be granted, and no construction work should start until planning is granted.

If planning permission is needed from say Bath City Council, or Bristol City Council, it can take several months sometimes for this to be obtained so this does need to kept in mind, as if planning is needed, it can mean that your construction company has to wait for planning approval, before they build your new garden bar.

 

 

What sort of access is needed to build a garden bar?
Ideally, we would need rear or side access to your garden; normally a side garden gate is usually sufficient for us to bring the building materials into your garden.

In some circumstances, an Victorian property on a terraced street, sometimes there might not be any rear or side access at all.

We would, therefore, need to visit the property to come up with a plan for how we could bring building materials through the house to build your new garden bar. Often, the vast majority of the building can be brought in bits and taken through the building. However this will normally increase the labour costs quite significantly and, therefore, the cost of the bill.

Therefore, we will need to come out and see how we can bring the building materials such as timber, glass, and rubber roofing through the house.

 

Do you offer to build garden rooms at an affordable price?

 

Affordable garden rooms

There are no two ways many us residents of the United Kingdom are feeling the pinch of what is often dubbed “the cost-of-living crisis”.

Everything from a can of beans at the local supermarket through to the cost of heating your home has increased in cost

 

Affordably priced garden rooms

Therefore, many residents in the UK are considering what to buy and not what to buy right now.
Therefore, many homeowners might have put off those more luxurious items, such as gaining a garden room, for another year. Perhaps the homeowner wanted to convert their attic space, yet they are delaying this as the cost may seem too expensive.

However, we are pleased to say that across Bristol, our order book is filling up with customers wanting quality garden offices.

Here’s why so many are hiring Kingsley to build their garden offices and rooms:

– Low cost cladding options available bringing the build cost down
– Low cost window and door options available bringing the cost down
– Low cost, long life roof options available

 

Garden rooms from just £18k

Therefore, there are ways to reduce the cost of acquiring a garden office or building a garden room- that’s if you hire us. Some companies do not alter the construction method to bring the cost down.

We are different, we will explain to the customer that we can offer you construction methods, which will help to bring the cost down of building your new garden room. For example, adding UPVC doors and windows, rather than using aluminium framed windows and doors.

The construction methods we use will not sacrifice quality of your garden room, yet often items, such as the doors can be substituted for lower cost options, which help save the customer money.

 

What is the cheapest method that you can use to build a garden office/garden room?

Ground Screws

 

Using ground screws rather than the concrete base.

You might think that concrete is relatively cheap to purchase, yet good quality concrete is rather expensive building material if a lot of it is needed.

Not only can concrete be expensive, and a lot of CO2 is used when manufacturing concrete as well, so you do have to consider, are there more eco-friendly products available for when building a new garden room?
Thankfully the answer is yes, and lower cost option than using concrete, and an option that’s better for the environment is to use ground screws.

The reason is ground screws, on much cheaper than using a concrete base, is simply because our ground screw installers can install these in a matter of a few hours with a powerful drill.

This saves time, it also means not one dollop of concrete is ever needed, meaning that we never have to call a concrete delivery company and wheel barrow it into the garden, which can be labour intensive.

 

Low-cost cladding

Hardwood cladding and certain brands of composite cladding can be very expensive to buy. These look brilliant and are popular, but there’s no two ways about it—they are costly especially to buy certain hardwoods from local timbers merchants.

Therefore, as this article is all about building affordable, low-cost garden rooms, why not consider these two options: opting for steel sheets or softwood cladding?

Softwood cladding requires more maintenance because it is more susceptible to wood rot. Powder-coated steel sheets require much less maintenance. However, many people don’t like the appearance of metal sheets clamped to the outside of the building. Therefore, you might want to opt for Thermowood is made from natural wood.

 

Expert sales team

We have a highly experienced and knowledgeable sales team.

We can therefore come out and chat with you about how much you are willing to spend, then we can start to build and design your garden room within the budget you have available.

 

Does your company offer garden room finance?

Although we don’t directly offer finance for our garden rooms, some customers do arrange finance themselves from lenders.

 

Regardless of how much you pay for garden room the quote will always include the following:

  • Quality insulation
  • Well-built, durable construction
  • Guaranteed to last
  • Double glazed
  • We have a well-built roof
  • Built fast by an expert team of garden room builders

Can you build a garden room for us that’s wholly clad using Shou Sugi Ban (Yakisugi) cladding?

Our team, based in the vibrant city of Bristol, is akin to a colony of hard-working bees, diligently crafting garden rooms that stand head and shoulders above the rest. Our expertise and dedication ensure that our garden rooms are a testament to quality and craftsmanship, setting us apart from other businesses in the industry.

There’s a rising trend among our customers in Bristol- they’re increasingly requesting garden rooms with Yakisugi cladding. This special, high-quality cladding, created through an ancient technique of wood burning, not only transforms the wood’s appearance but also enhances its durability. The demand for these unique garden rooms is on the up, and we’re here to meet it.

So, as more Bristol residents want a garden room built by a company that can complete them with Shou Sugi Ban, we thought it would be a good idea to write a blog post explaining the benefits and why you may want this constructed in your garden.

 

What is Shou Sugi Ban wood?

Shou Sugi Ban timber has been used for centuries in Japan.

So, in Great Britain, many homeowners have Shou Sugi Ban garden fencing and garden rooms built using this timber. It produces a garden office or room that looks brilliant but is also very different from a garden room with varnished softwood cladding. The burning process paints the wood in a deep, mesmerizing charcoal hue; it’s this captivating appearance that enchants many homeowners. This is also combined with the fact that this is an ancient process used by the Japanese to protect the wood, so no nasty chemicals need to be applied to the wood; you are simply using quality wood and heat to produce this appearance.

 

 

How is Shou Sugi Ban (Yakisugi) produced?

We often do not char the wood ourselves; we usually buy the timber that’s been through the Shou Sugi Ban or Yakisugi process from an expert. The reason is that the outside of the wood needs to be charred perfectly. Overburnt and the wood will be weakened. Not enough heat is applied, and the charring process will not be completed to a level to protect the wood, so we buy our Shou Sugi Ban or Yakisugi from a supplier. This ensures that we are using the highest quality Shou Sugi Ban wood in our Bristol garden rooms, giving you peace of mind about the durability and appearance of your garden room.

 

Dates back to the 18th century

So, even though Shou Sugi Ban timber is regularly featured in many interior design magazines, and many Bristol homeowners want to use it for their garden fencing or the outside of their summerhouse, it’s not new. It’s been around since the 18th century and has been used in Japan for a long time.

 

Does Yakisugi or Shou Sugi Ban strengthen or weaken the wood?

When you see someone applying a large flame to the wood and charring the outside of the wood, many people think the wood is becoming weaker just to achieve that appearance. However, if the process is done right, the wood actually becomes better protected and can, therefore, last longer. The reason is that the process helps to form a protective layer, helping to protect the wood.
However, this is only if the Shou Sugi Ban is done right. Some companies overburn the wood or do not burn it for long enough. This is why you must buy it from a supplier that guarantees the wood will last a specific period.

 

Weatherproofing

Another reason so many people, when they have a Bristol garden office or room built by our team, ask us to clad the outside with Shou Sugi Ban (Yakisugi) is that it helps protect the wood from the elements, such as the rain. The wood can, therefore, be weatherproofed.
What we would say is Shou Sugi Ban (Yakisugi) timber can vary greatly, depending on the wood that’s used, plus also how well the heat has been applied to the wood. Therefore, you do need to pick a supplier that guarantees the wood.

 

Chemical-Free
When you think of all the wood paint needed for garden fencing and decking, then the varnishes and the oils required to protect the cladding of some garden rooms, this can be a lot of chemicals needed.
Another reason garden room companies, landscape gardeners, and homeowners choose Shou Sugi Ban (Yakisugi) cladding is that the wood is protected from heat. Therefore, layers of chemicals are not added; this is another reason this wood is used, as many homeowners want to move away from using chemicals in their gardens, where possible.

Garden Room Companies Bristol

Our team has built many garden rooms in South West England. These rooms can be used for various purposes, some as garden gyms and cinema rooms, and we have built many garden offices.

For any garden room you would like our builders to build, we can add Shou Sugi Ban (Yakisugi) timber to the outside. Then we can talk to you about how we can make the garden room even more comfortable for you; perhaps you would like air conditioning added, maybe you would like underfloor heating, maybe you would like extra thick insulation to make keeping the room warm very simple.

We offer to build garden rooms with a meagre starting price of 18k. This is why our team is out working all year round, come summer, spring, winter, or autumn, building our garden rooms and garden offices in the city of Bristol. We have full-time sales staff available on the phone to answer any questions you may have.

Plus, we can also arrange a good time for our sales staff to come and meet you in your garden. We can answer any questions you may have, from explaining the hundreds of different cladding options we can offer—metal, wood, and composite—to the different brands of air-conditioning units we can also add to the building.

We build luxury garden bars right across South-West England.

 

Garden Bar S.WEST ENGLAND

From Exeter right through to Bristol, our builders are busy-bees throughout the year building luxurious garden bars for our customers. In this article, we will explain why so many homeowners call us each week, to ask our construction company build a garden bar for them.

Great place to socialise
When you have a party with friends or family over coming over, some people like to have the gathering in a garden, or within their garden room. Therefore, you can enjoy the sunshine with your friends and family and make the most of the good summer weather. Your garden bar can therefore be a great places to socialise and enjoy a drink or two with friends.

 

 

Our garden bars can be used right throughout the entire year

The description of the “Summerhouse” does infer that you can only use the building during warmer weather.
However, we are building so many insulated garden buildings throughout South-West England that can be used throughout the entire year.

Our construction company predominantly builds garden rooms in Bath, Exeter, and Bristol. We normally have a full order book throughout the year simply because our buildings are so well insulated and come with a long guarantee period.
Our garden buildings can be used 365-days a year

So whether it’s Christmas Day, and you may want a Christmas party in the room, or its the peak of summer in July, you can throw a party and use your garden bar as place to enjoy time with your friends.

Plus, if it gets chilly outside, you can turn on the heating system, and the room will be nice and warm in a short period of time.

Our garden rooms, which we build in South West England, are often used as multipurpose spaces. These garden rooms can be helpful for a wide range of purposes, from exercising to simply reading a book and enjoying a glass of wine.

What’s great about having a garden building constructed is that you will potentially have a large building constructed in your garden that can be used for many different purposes.

For example, it could span the entire width of your garden- so could be used as a bar, to play pool, or somewhere where you can workout during the entire year.

 

 

Pool/snooker room

Many people like to play pool or snooker; so if you have a large garden room built, it can become a place where you can go and enjoy playing a pool game, perhaps on a summer evening.

 

Can you offer us a brochure or a price list?

Our sales staff can send to you a PDF sales brochure, which explains more about the luxury garden buildings we construct in England.

Additionally, we have sales staff who can come out five days a week in person and meet you within your garden, to offer advice and often provide you with a quote on the spot if it’s a more simple construction.

If the customer wants a more complicated build, such as a garden room, that has a “living roof”, a roof on which we can grow plants or, the customer wants a large bathroom fitted, we might need to return to the office and calculate the cost.
We will always aim to get a quote back as soon as possible after we meet you, we often send out a detailed breakdown of our estimate within 48 hours.

 

Do you only build garden buildings within Bristol?

You might have seen our construction company a lot of work around Bristol. However, we don’t just build garden rooms in the city of Bristol. We have a large team of staff, ranging from qualified electricians to architects, which means our construction company is able to build any type of garden buildings throughout the entire Southwest of England. So we can see the garden rooms building as far as Exeter and right through Bristol.

 

Can you arrange for us to obtain planning permission for our garden bar?

The vast majority of garden bars that we construct—often these buildings—can be constructed straight away and are what is called permitted development.

Often, we do not, therefore, need to gain planning permission from the local council to build our garden rooms.
However, with that said, some of the garden buildings we construct do require planning permission.

When we come out and offer you a quote, we can then tell straight away whether we think planning permission is needed or not.

Now, it’s worth noting that if your garden bar requires planning permission, say from the local council, such as Bristol City Council, you could be waiting over a month for planning permission to be granted sometimes by the council.

You might have to wait even longer sometimes if the council is processing a lot of planning applications at that time.

 

We are planning on playing loud music in our garden bar. Are you able to soundproof the entire garden bar?

Because the building is a timber construction, soundproofing it completely is often not possible.

However, what is possible is that our builders put soundproofing; into the ceilings, the floor and walls for you.
The brand and quality of the soundproofing you choose will depend on how much sound is contained within the room.
When you combine this with triple glazing, this can further help to include the noise on the windows and the doors. Again, we would say this soundproofing can help to contain the sound within the room, but it doesn’t completely stop some sound from escaping from the garden room.

 

 

We want a company that employs qualified electricians to install the electrics. Are you able to do this?

Many of our customers like the fact that they don’t have to manage multiple tradesmen when they are having their garden room built. For example, suppose you hire a different UK garden room company, in that case, you might have to hire a separate painter and decorator, electrician, or groundworks company to install the trench, waste pipe, and water supply.

However, our customers like that we have all these tradespeople, from the plumbers, through to the painters and decorators working for us in-house. So, we can take care of all the work that is needed in-house.

Whether you want the room completely painted and decorated or electrics installed, or all the plumbing work taken care of, we can complete this work for you.

Perhaps you need ground works completed; whether its digging a trench; we can take care of all this work for you within our quote.

Does your business build garden cinema rooms in S.West England?

 

Garden Buildings | Garden Cinema Rooms

 

Many homeowners here in Great Britain are having garden buildings constructed by our construction company. These garden buildings are not just to being used as a place of work or to exercise but where they can enjoy watching a film. Whether that’s one of the latest Marvel movies, or perhaps you prefer a romantic comedy, many people have a garden building constructed by us to be used as a garden cinema room.

 

Garden Cinema Rooms

We can install within building soundproofing, this can be placed in the walls, ceilings, and floor soundproofing. This means that you can watch your favourite films are as loud as you would like.

Then, our electricians can wire in all of the surround sound speaker system, including the subwoofers, the projectors, and all of the power points you will need.

Often, the projecter is mounted onto the ceiling and then projected onto a plasterboard wall. We can install the projector for you.

 

How can we control how much sunlight comes through the bi-folding doors?

If you’re watching a film, the last thing you want is to be squinting while trying to watch the film because the sunlight is too bright.
You may well be struggling to watch the the movie because you can’t see it because the sun light is so bright. Therefore, We can install bi-folding doors within the actual glass panels that can be quality blinds which you can adjust, to control how much light enters the building. It can be controlled by a remote or by manually turning a stick to rotate the blinds. Therefore, you can control how much light enters the cinema room whilst your watching a movie.

 

Are you able to take care of installing all of the electrics within the garden building?

The electrics will need to be installed within the cinema room, and often, a deep trench must be dug in the garden, in order to lay the armoured cable. What’s important is that whichever British garden building company you hire to construct your cinema room, that they use a qualified electrician to do this work.

We always use qualified electricians

Our qualified electricians can take care of everything from installing LED spotlights to the strip lights made of LED that can change colour when you click a remote button.
Our electricians also install the electric underfloor heating, the electric radiators, the electric power sockets, and all of the speakers.

 

Are you able to organise for us that we gain the the planning permission needed to construct our garden room?

Whether we are building a cinema room in Bath, England, or the building is being constructed in somewhere in Bristol, there are different local councils where we will need to apply to gain planning permission.

Some of the rooms we build do not require any planning permission at all. However, when we chat with you, we understand the size of the garden building being built, we can, therefore, offer an opinion on whether planning permission is likely to be needed or not for your garden room.

 

If planning permission is needed, our architects can apply for planning permission for you

If planning permission is needed from the city of Bath County Council or Bristol Council, we have a full-time architect who can apply for planning permission for you- helping you to save a lot of time.

Our architects can therefore create all of the CAD drawings that are needed, and the notes needed to be sent to the local council. We can, therefore, take care of all the paperwork needed for you to obtain planning permission for your new cinema room.

 

We can build a cinema room as large as you would like

We have worked in some truly massive gardens within Bath and some massive gardens in Bristol also. This allows the homeowner to construct a garden building as large as they would like, thats as long as they can gain planning permission for the building.

Therefore, you can build a cinema room and design and build it the way you like.
For example, you could have a kitchen area built within the building, another side room could be added that could be used as a bathroom.

There could be a totally separate room with its own separate entrance that is used for an entirely different purpose, such as doing yoga in the mornings.

How secure are these buildings? Can they be locked up at night?

When you consider that within a garden cinema room, there will be top-quality speakers made by well-known brands such as Samsung, you will want to have good-quality locks installed on your garden room.

Therefore, we can install quality locks on the bi-folding doors and window.

Our electricians to also install CCTV right around the building if you would like this added to your garden room.

Depending on what brand of CCTV you would like, you can get mobile alerts on your phone if somebody approaches your garden building, say when you are on holiday.

 

Are your home cinemas warm enough to use in winter?

We want to use our cinema room 365 days a year.

How warm are these buildings during the winter months?

 

When you see our builders working in your garden, they will often be cutting the insulation with a handsaw. We use thick our insulation, that’s really thick panel installation when we are building our garden rooms.

The insulation we use, looks a bit like a giant sandwich; it has two reflective outer coatings and a dense foam centre. It’s superb at keeping the cold air out and the warm air in during and the winter.

Now, this insulation can be pretty expensive; depending on the thickness, so some garden room companies might use it sparingly.

However, our company is different, and we cram this insulation into the walls between structural timbers, we put it into the floor between the wooden joists and put it into the roof between the roof timbers. This means that all around the rooms we build are fully insulated, making it simple to keep warm.

We answer some frequently asked questions relating to our garden offices

 

Introduction

When we get calls from our clients every week, the vast majority of our customers would like a garden office constructed.

In our opinion, this is the most common reason people would like a garden building constructed.

As we all know theres been a significant increase in the number of people working from home in recent years, so often many Bristol residents need quality garden buildings built so that they have somewhere to work comfortably whilst at home.

Would a garden office be comfortable to work in?

How can we regulate the temperature?

When you walk into a steel shipping container or, let’s say, a wooden garden shed on a hot summer day, it can feel boiling inside, right?

The heat can be considerable and perhaps even unbearable. Now, when you consider that a garden room will often have a black rubber roof, this can attract the sun’s rays, and the heat can become trapped within the building.

Therefore, the building can become unbearably hot unless you have a way to regulate the temperature.

This is what often separates cheap, low-quality, low-cost summerhouses from high-quality buildings which are built with ample insulation installed. We can install a small conditioning unit and add multiple electric heaters as well. Therefore our garden offices can be used all year around and in any weather.

How long does a garden office last for?

This depends on your options you select, yet our garden room company our ever installs premium-quality building items such as double-glazed aluminium bi-folding doors. Therefore each aspect of our buildings are guaranteed for different period of times.

When we come out and chat with you, we can tell you how long the windows are guaranteed for, how long the roof is guaranteed for, and other aspects of the building are guaranteed for.

Will a garden office add value to my home?

When a potential buyer of your home walks into a garden room built by us, they will see it’s a very well-constructed garden office, they may want to work the building themselves Monday through to Friday.

Will we need to seek planning permission to have a garden office constructed?

This will depend on many factors, such as the size of the building that’s being constructed, how close it is to your neighbours house, and other aspects of its design.

What we will need to do is come out and have a look and see whether or not you require planning permission.

However, with that said, we would say that the vast majority of the garden buildings that we construct, don’t need planning permission.

However, sometimes, planning does need to be sought, and if this is the case, you might have to wait several months before planning permission is granted from the council.

Do you have any experience building many garden offices?

We most certainly do; we have built many garden offices. Some of these can be built with a toilet so that you have the added convenience of having a lavatory within the building if you would like this installed into your garden office.

How secure are these buildings?

These buildings can be secure because they can have double-glazed bi-folding doors fitted, with a good-quality locking mechanism installed.

Quality locks can also be added to the windows as well. For an additional price, we could install a CCTV system as well.

 

How much does a garden office cost?

Prices do vary. We offer a starting price for a garden office pod of just £18,000. The average typical price of a garden office that we build is around £25,000. The higher-end garden rooms are much larger, can come complete with a bathroom and a toilet; these are around £40,000.

We have a full-time sales staff who can come and chat with you within the Bristol area and answer any questions you might have.

An FAQ for garden offices with a toilet

 

Introduction

A lot of people when they’re having a garden office constructed, may plan to use the room for a large proportion of the week. For example, a self-employed person might easily spend 50+ hours a week, busy working away in their garden office.

Therefore, it can be a slight irritation let’s say, if you have to keep running across the lawn to use the toilet within your house. This is why it’s much more convenient, to get a bathroom installed within your garden office. You might even want to have a shower cubicle installed as well, so that you can have a nice refreshing shower within your garden office after work.

We are now going to answer some commonly asked questions regarding garden offices with a toilet.

How much does a garden office cost that also has a toilet installed?

When you’re building a garden office, or any type of garden building for that matter, and it has a toilet and a wash hand basin inside, you must consider that often there is a lot of groundworks that needs to be completed. We often use a mini JCB excavator to lay utilities such as water pipes, and the soil pipe to the garden building.

This will allow you to flush the waste away from your toilet because it will be connected to main drains. However, sometimes especially when somebody owns a large property, the main drains might be some distance away from the garden building. Therefore, a mini JCB excavator might be working for some time digging the trenches and laying all the pipes, so this does have to be kept in mind.

Average cost

If we were to ask to provide an average cost for us to build a garden office complete with a toilet, it would be around £35,000, that’s for an average size garden office, complete with a small side room to have a toilet installed and wash hand basin. Costs do vary, it does depend on the size of the garden building and how far the building is from the main drains.

How will I keep warm during the winter within my garden office?

Now this is a great question, owners of garden offices must consider how they will heat the room. It can be tempting to purchase a flatpack summerhouse for a relatively small amount of money. However what a lot of homeowners quickly find, is that in the winter it’s freezing inside these buildings, because there is no insulation inside.

So in the summer months it might be baking hot inside a garden room that has no insulation, and you might feel as though you might pass out because it is simply too hot within the building.

Therefore the two extremes are normally exist when you buy really cheap wooden summerhouses, in that they are nothing more than a glorified wooden shed. They are therefore hard to keep warm in the winter, and hard to cool in the summer.

Will you be able to install ventilation into the bathroom as well?

So, a lot of people when they are having a garden office or room built, often use the room for multiple different purposes, often it’s a place to work, but also often it’s a place to work out after work- as you might have a lot of gym equipment within the building.

Therefore when a shower cubicle needs to be installed, and you take a hot and long shower, this produces a lot of steam.

You don’t want this steam to circulate around in your garden room because it could cause damp issues, and possibly black spores can start forming on the plasterboard if there no ventilation installed.

So our highly skilled electricians can install one or perhaps multiple electric ventilation fans, the same type you would have installed in your bathroom, you just simply pull the cord and the fan switches on to extract the steam from your bathroom.

Can we pick our own bathroom suite?

Most definitely, what we can do is offer your quote for a garden room, where we supply the bathroom suite, or sometimes the customer will want to purchase it before the building is constructed.

Therefore, the customer can purchase the bathroom suite themselves. Some of the garden buildings that we construct in South West England are truly massive, so sometimes our customers will have copper crawl legged baths installed, also with a large wash hand basin, and also a large toilet as well.

At the same time, some customers might have a small garden in Bristol’s city centre, and therefore require a compact toilet and corner wash hand basin. Our Bristol plumbers can install of this for you.

 

We are sold on the idea of getting a garden office built, how long will it take the build?

This does depend on how much groundwork is needed, and the size of the building that is being constructed.

What we would say is that the vast majority of garden offices that we build, are built from start to finish in less than three weeks.

Now this might amaze you how quickly our builders can build these buildings, yet one of the reasons why these buildings are constructed so fast, is that we you something called plastic ground screws.

Now, what this does is it allows us to build a garden office in a short period, because we haven’t got to build concrete foundations.

As you might know, concrete is rather expensive, therefore organising a concrete pour to lay a large concrete slab, can cost a lot of money. Therefore, using ground screws, which are drilled into the ground using a massive drill, we can build a garden office / room quicker and cheaper than what some other companies can build it for if they used concrete foundations.
