Types of Garden Rooms We Build

Our garden rooms are built out of timber wood or composite cladding, our builders will provide a luxury building that is fully electrically wired, insulated and double glazed. Most gardens rooms are standalone buildings at the back of the garden, but some people also have them attached to their homes as garden room extensions.

These multi-functional spaces can be used for just about any occasion such as a work space / home office, celebration, or play area. It is something that people consider having built to escape regular house activities and to have access to their gardens all year round. The room offers you the opportunity to easily get away from inside your house which was a godsend during COVID-19 .

You will have seen other outdoor garden buildings such as log cabins, gazebos with wooden structures, garden sheds, garages, and summer houses usually all made of timber. 

A garden room can be designed according to the purpose of the room. Let’s have a look at some of the garden room ideas

Contemporary style garden room: the word ‘Contemporary’ means present. A contemporary garden room style is suggested to people who want a modern garden room for entertainment or functional use as an office space. A well-lit, double glazed, electrically wired and fully insulated room with a touch of modern architecture can be an attractive and perfect working environment, away from the disturbances of the daily home activities.

Shepherd’s hut garden room: as the name indicates, the shepherd’s hut garden room will be perfectly blending with the garden and will impart a rustic and cozy look. The colours are chosen to match the garden and it will be the perfect room for any activity

Dual-use storage and living space: if you have quite a big garden room it can be split into two and can be used to store things and as a living space as well. The living space can be designed to a gym room, games room or a perfect guest room where someone can stay a night or longer.


Garden rooms are very durable with solid walls and a roof and are designed to let in maximum sunlight. A garden room can last up to 30 years and can be built with very low costs compared to an external extension of a house or other outdoor garden buildings. And if for any reason you want the garden room removed at some point, it is much easier to move a garden room than demolishing a permanent extension or garage.

Garden Offices

A garden office is a type of outdoor garden room built outside the house strictly for work purposes. In this era where working from home or “wfh” is the new trend, an outdoor working space can help you to work peacefully in your own space, without any disturbance or distraction from your family and home activities.

For more information on the garden offices we design visit our garden office Scotland page.

Garden Pods

Garden pods are really just a small garden room which can be installed anywhere in your garden. Often garden pods can be crane dropped into your garden, meaning a rapid installation time. Garden pods can be used as a garden office, small music studio, games room or very basic sleeping space. A garden pod can be designed in any shape and look very stylish from the outside compared to a garden room. 

Garden pods tend to all look very alike. Most are either just small garden rooms or dome style pods which have become very popular in the hospitality industry or other oval type shapes. 

Garden pods are similar to garden rooms but are usually smaller and have a more stylish design. A garden pod can be set up within 1 to 3 days and will be ready for use immediately after the installation.

Also, the cost is lower due to less materials being required and the quick and easy installation.

Garden pods are far easier to maintain, and you can expect them to last for decades if well looked after.
