Best for a big garden

Impress your family and friends with your stunning entertaining space, or just use it to relax with a cuppa. However you choose to use yours, we're sure that it will be a much loved addition to your garden!

Best home office

As our garden rooms come with insulation built in, this will give you the ideal environment to separate yourself from your home and get into the mindset for work. Our top pick would be the 3 x 5 Insulated Garden Room, which is ideal for getting stuck in with the work you need to get done. Whether you're running your own business, or working freelance, this garden building will give you the space to dedicate to work.

Best for hobbies

If your hobbies centre around creating things, then it's important to have a lot of light to see what you're working on - especially if painting is your way of relaxing. You can choose where to place the windows and doors in our insulated garden rooms to best suit your garden, which will allows you to make the most of the available light. Our 3 x 4 Insulated Garden Room is the best choice to make the most of the available light in your garden.

As with any building, it's important to maintain it on a regular basis to keep it in great shape. Simply coating your building with a suitable wood treatment will go a long way to ensuring your new insulated garden building will look it's best for years to come.
