10 steps to designing your perfect garden room

 

 
A garden room or a garden office is a building that you might choose to use on a daily basis. Therefore it’s important, that the room is well designed so that you are comfortable throughout the different seasons.

Whatever the weather can chuck that your garden room, it needs to be ready to withstand our British weather, so from heavy rain, sleet or hail, the building needs to withstand our, well wet climate.

Equally your garden room needs to be comfortable, it needs to be insulated, and just as you like to switch on the air-conditioning within your car on a rather hot summers day, well this is going to be the same for your garden building.

So, we thought it would be a superb idea, to give you 10 points to consider when you’re thinking about having a garden building built in Bath, England.

 

Number 1) Which roof are you going to opt for?

We believe a garden room is only as good as the roof that you add to it, and you might be rather confused by that statement.

You might be thinking, well shortly a roof, is just a roof? How can this define how well built the garden building is?

Well there are some roofs which don’t last that long before they need patching up or fully replacing. Then there are some really high performance roofs, that are guaranteed to last, even if it’s absolutely raining cats and dogs non-stop, your garden room can be able to stand all of that heavy rain.

So what would we recommend opting for?

Well would most definitely recommend opting for a company that guarantees the roof for say 10 years. We would also recommend a rubber roof, we would actually recommend a rubber roof which has insulation underneath, so for example a thick piece of panel insulation, because as we all know, heat rises, so its important that all that heat doesn’t just escape through the roof. A thick piece of panel insulation, can help to retain that heat for that bit longer.

 

Number 2) Think about the cladding

It’s a bit like when you cut wood with a hand saw or you chop some logs within your garden, you might get that nice waft of freshly cut timber entering your nostrils.

And this is the same for your garden room, you might get that nice pine smell, when the buildings built, and you walk inside, and on the outside the wood might look brilliant.

However soft wood, especially pine, if it’s not correctly sealed, and by that we mean if the timber is not varnished or a specialist wood oil applied, then what can happen is that the wood starts to become water stained, that’s as the water runs off the roof and its absorbed by the timber walls.

As it absorbs the rain water, and continues to hold that water, the wood may start to rot and it may start to change colour to a grey or even to a black colour.

This can make your garden room look all and tatty, even though you might have only had the building built let’s say three years ago.
So, what would we recommend?

Well, composite or metal cladding is often more expensive than softwood, but we think it’s definitely worth forking out for what is called composite cladding or steel sheets, as they simply last longer.

This type of cladding is simply brilliant, is comes in a range of colours and it never needs painting.

 

Number 3) Consider your garden rooms security

It’s really important, especially if you’re going to keep valuable items such as your Apple Computer, printers and lets say a camera within your garden room, then the building has good security.

What would we recommend?

We would recommend CCTV which switches on when motion is detected your garden, we would recommend having aluminium framed windows and doors and that each window or door has quality locks installed.

We would recommend a floodlight which is triggered when motion is detected within your garden as well.

So, when we are installing a garden building within the city of Bath, we would recommend top of the range CCTV is installed, and you may want to get alerts to your smartphone, if the is motion detected in your garden.

 

Number four) Decking

When the weather is really nice outside, when it’s nice and warm, and there is a warm summers breeze in the air, your likely to want to sit out on your decking, enjoy say a nice espresso? and what better place than on your decking?
So why not have composite or wooden decking built in front of your garden room?

What would we recommend?

We would highly recommend choosing composite decking, which our carpenters can build.
And why do we recommend opting for say Millboard composite decking, well that’s because it won’t ever suffer ever in a million years suffer from woodworm-because its not made from 100% wood, so this simply meaning it lasts much longer than timber decking.

 

Number 5) toilet and wash hand basin

You may want to have a toilet and a wash hand basin installed within your garden room? That’s especially if you’re spending a huge amount of time within the room, and if your going to be drinking a lot of coffee or beer in there!

Number 6) Storage space

Sometimes, a garage may need to be demolished, or a wooden shed, that’s to make way for a new garden room to be built. However, this does pose a slight problem, that is where exactly you will keep lawnmower?

This is why we would highly recommend incorporating into the design of your garden building, that you have a side storage room. A room with a separate door, which opens up into a small room, ideal for storing say those fold-up aluminium ladders.
Within the room and store items such as yours strimmer as well.

 

Number 7) Triple glazing

We would highly recommend opting for triple glazing for the bi-folding doors, and the windows as well, this can help to improve the energy efficiency of the whole building, as well as helping to make much quieter inside.

 

Number 8) Hire an experienced garden room company (we have over 10 years experience building garden rooms in South West England)

When you search on Google.co.uk, for “garden room companies” well there are hundreds of builders in Bath, within England that build summerhouses.

However when you start so whittle down the list of highly experienced garden companies, you will find there are much fewer companies that have been building summerhouses as long as us.

We have literally built a countless number of garden buildings, we have been building these for over 10 years, so we are highly experienced in building garden rooms.

We believe this is important because we can make our garden buildings extra strong, plus because they are so well built, we can offer you a super long guarantee on every single building which we construct.

 

Number 9) Built fast

You might have just been offered a new job? Yet that role involves you now working from home much more often, so now it might be a bit of the scramble to find a garden room company which can build your building quickly for you.
Thankfully we have a large team of staff, so when a customer needs a garden room built ultra quickly, we are the company to call.

 

Number 10) Electric installation

Sometimes, some companies when building garden buildings, they ask the customer, to find an electrician who can install all of the power sockets, the lighting and also the LED lights outside.
However, when you hire Kingsley to build the summerhouse, we have electricians as part of our team, so included within the quote, will be the price to install the electrics.

How long does it take your company to build a garden room?

 

Here in Great Britain, how long it takes various garden room companies, to build a garden room, varies massively depending upon which company you choose to hire. Some companies like ours, need to bring in JCB excavators, and we need to bring in that a lot of tradesmen to build our buildings.

However, some of the company’s, just south flatpack summerhouses, which the customers asked to build themselves.

From the structural wood, which is kiln dried, and FSC approved, through to installing roof windows made by velux windows, every single aspect of the building will be very high quality.

For example, Quinn insulation panels can be added to the walls, we can also use fibreglass made by rock wool if you would prefer?
We can also add or your filled radiators made by dimplex radiators as well.

You might even want us to purchase a Sony television and to mount this on the wall, and to fix the brackets to the wall, so that even the television is installed for you.

So, it very much depend on the of building that you purchase, for example be flatpack will it be bespoke.

For example, some buildings can be advertised, as “do-it-yourself, summerhouse”, and sometimes have written within the product description, will be estimated time to build the buildings. However often it does depend on whether your DIY expert, or whether you are not very good at DIY. For example, often next to a screwdriver icon, will be how long it will take to construct the building. For example, the company might say it can be built in say three days. However, if you not very good at do-it-yourself might take substantially longer.

Quality does take time to build

All of our garden buildings are 100% bespoke, simply meaning that every single one we build, is built differently and to different dimensions. So one week we could be building a truly massive garden room, which is going to be used as guest accommodation with ensuite bathrooms.
The next week we can be working right in the fantastic city of Bath, in England building a garden office pod which is just large enough to have place a d perhaps a few shelves as well. No two buildings we build are ever the same, so they are not therefore mass produced in say a light industrial unit.

Instead, our estimator will company building materials then we will get those delivered to your garden, so that our builders can start work as soon as you would like.

We always use quality FSC wood, a lot of hourglass that we use is Pilkington quality glass, plus also if you hire us to install air conditioning, we can install a quality air conditioning unit, for example you might want to have a Samsung air conditioning unit installed and we can supply this and install it for you.

Built the way you like

Instead, the whole building is constructed, to the design that you would like. So for example you might want oak cladding, a sedum roof and you might even know the exact colour you want the inside of the garden room painted, with a nice quality Farrow and Ball paint. We really do like Fallow and Ball paint it’s really good quality paint.

We can paint the inside of your garden room for you, we can use crown paint, we can use dulex paint, we can also use Farrow and Ball paint.

Bespoke

This means that every piece of wood needs to be cut by hand in your garden, we use quality Dewalt hand tools to construct our garden rooms.

And it does take us on average three weeks to build the entire building. We sometimes also use a micro digger, made by JCB, to help clear away any shrubbery, to level the soil and to also help unload our skips.

 

The problem with flatpack garden rooms

The problem with pack garden rooms, that are assembled by the customer, is that sometimes you don’t have much of a choice in terms how large the building is.

So, for example, you might end up with a summerhouse which doesn’t fit the contours of garden.

Let’s say that you have a cottage, and a blend of your garden ends at a sharp point it might be hard to find a summerhouse to garden, if you’re planning on buying a flatpack building is.

However, our builders can construct a garden room to fit the contours of your garden, meaning that there is less wasted space in the garden room will fit perfectly into the dimensions of your garden.

Quality

As any good builder will tell you, any building is is only strong as the foundations which supports it, if the foundations are weak, doesn’t matter if it’s a summerhouse, a house or a block of flats, if the foundations are not built solid than the building could break apart and sometimes relatively quickly.

For example, a thin foundation, made of concrete, might start to form cracks, and break apart.
We’ve seen some summerhouses which have been built off concrete blocks, that is breeze blocks, laid in the garden, or patio slabs and then this summerhouse built upon it. This is no good at all, cutting corners like this is a total false economy, that’s because the actual building could sag, break apart that need demolishing becomes structurally unsafe.

We can use ground screws, to dramatically speed up the construction process

If you were to watch our builders, construct the summerhouse, using time lapse video, perhaps you’d want to set up let’s say a Go pro camera. You will see that we can install the foundations, using ground screws very quickly.

We use a Dewalt drill, to drive the ground screws deep into the ground, provide solid foundation to build the summerhouse upon.
What makes our garden building such high quality, is that we can use Pilkington Glass, we can use aluminium framed windows and doors, so the last very long period of time. We can also use composite decking made by mill board which is a very high-quality brand, we can also use Farrow and Ball paint on the inside if you would like this used.

We can also install a quality air conditioning system, perhaps like a Siemens air-conditioning system?

So, installing ground screws doesn’t take much longer but it will provide a much stronger foundation. Plus, if ground screws are not suitable for your garden, perhaps the ground is to boggy, and to wet during most of the year, or we could actually do is build a large concrete slab raised the whole building off the ground.

What’s important is that a solid foundation is built is suitable for your garden.

 

Bespoke bathrooms

Just as you hire a plumber to install a nice bathroom suite, for example you might want nice quality bathroom made by Tavistock? You might also want a shower installed made by Mira, Mira make fantastic quality electric showers.

We can then install quality bathroom tiles, toilets, wash hand basin as well as a shower. This means you can have a complete bathroom suite installed within your garden room.

 

On average how long does it take you to build a garden building?

The vast majority of our buildings, our built in less than three weeks, this includes everything from building the base, that is the concrete foundations all the ground screws right up to finishing off the garden room by giving it a lick of paint.

However, we are often asked to build some very high value garden rooms, sometimes which are used as guest bedrooms, so they have a large bedroom area, and often also have an ensuite. For these garden rooms, which can range of to £70,000, sometimes it takes us longer to build these buildings.

However the customer is often happy to wait for us to build our garden rooms, , because they know that they are receiving a very high quality building that is made to last, and often the construction process can’t be rushed. And often for example when we’re installing a large bathroom, there are a lot of tradesmen which are needed, such as tilers, plumbers and electricians, so we need to stage the work so that each tradesman can do the job.

 

Do you build garden buildings made of brick and blocks?

Yes, we do, we employ bricklayers and block layers, which can build a garden building, we also construct garages as well.
For us to build a garden building made using bricks and blocks, this does take us longer to build, because we need to mix all of that cement, and building a brick wall, does take us longer than building the building using timber.

However, the garden room made using bricks and breeze blocks and cement, will last longer than a wooden summerhouse.
So, we would highly recommend, having a quote from us, to build a timber summerhouse as well as us offering a quote to build the building you breeze blocks and bricks.

How long does it take you to build a garden room complete with a bathroom?

To build a garden room that has a bathroom, does take us longer, because we need to bring into your garden a mini excavator to date all of the trenches. To do this work by hand would take as too long, so often we use a micro digger, by JCB, we use the JCB excavator to dig the trench, then we can lay the soil pipe and also the pipes needed to connect a water supply to garden room.

The mini excavator then often needs to dig a long trench, and we need lay the trench and is also any excess soil needs to be added to a waste skip.

There are ground workers need to lay a plastic pipe, aka the waste pipe, we also need to connect the water supply up to the garden building as well.

This does take us longer because of all that extra work digging the trench, laying the pipe and connecting the water supply as well as connecting this to the toilet and wash hand basin and the shower.

We need a garden office built quickly; how quickly can you build it?

Sometimes we are asked to construct a simple garden room, these are sometimes called garden office parks, that is a garden room that is relatively small.

Often our builders are able to build these in a short period of time, so for example you might have started a brand-new job, let’s say you’re now working from home in Bath, which now means that’s you now need a garden office built.

You might therefore be eager to get a garden room constructed, so that you can start using the room is your place of work during the week.

And sometimes can build the whole building in less than two weeks

Have a nice solid foundation to start building the summerhouse upon.

Why pay more?

There’s a good reason why we build hundreds of summerhouses throughout the South West of England every single year, that’s because we offer fantastic prices.

What different types of garden offices does your company build?

Garden Buildings South West England

 

 

A garden office is a place were sometimes the owner will be spending in excess of 40 hours busy working within the room per week.

The room must therefore be super comfortable, be a place that’s also warm, that’s cool within summer, that has plenty of light coming through the windows and doors, so the room is light and airy during the day.

It should be a place where you enjoy working.

Why choose Kingsley Build to build your garden office?

 

Our garden offices are built to last, constructed in your garden and not in a factory, we use quality building materials such as rubber roofing, which simply means, the room is built to last. We build our buildings to last, and we are so confident that that they will last, that every building, no matter if it costs 17k or 70k to build, will come with a long guarantee.

So, we thought it would be a good idea to offer some food for thought, to provide you with some ideas on how we could build your garden office and to explain some of the different options that our company can offer.

A garden office that’s complete with bathroom

 

When you have a garden office built, it can make a become a great place to work, a space that quiet, that’s light and airy, somewhere you enjoy working. We this is especially during the summer, the summer breeze can flow through the room, and when you’re looking out over your lawn and the birds are singing in the background- you might just think, well why didn’t we buy one of these before now.

But sooner or later, after drinking all those espressos you’re going to need to go to the bathroom, and this can mean a fast sprint across the lawn, to use the lavatory within the house. So why not have a complete bathroom suite built in your garden office? Or if you would prefer just a toilet and a wash hand basin?

Rectangular, square or triangular?

 

Your garden office if its built by us, hasn’t just got to be a standard rectangular shape, that’s because all of the buildings we build are bespoke, every building we build is different. We can build it to any shape that you would like.

For example, you might only garden which ends at a point, you might therefore want a triangle shape garden room.

Or let’s say that you own a new built detached house, the garden might not be very long at all might be very wide. You might therefore want the thin rectangular garden room, a garden room which spans the entire garden?

Alternatively you might want a circular garden room, and we can build this for you.

Sometimes, our clients will have contacted a local architect to design their garden building, then we can offer you a quote from the architect’s drawings, for how much it cost us to build your garden building.

We have built many garden offices

What’s great about hiring our company is we have built many garden offices across the South West of England, from Exeter down to Bristol. This means that we are highly experienced in building garden rooms.

 

 

Multiple rooms

We can build multiple separate rooms within your garden building.

For example, the main use of the building, might be to use the building as an office, so you might want a large main room where you can complete your work.

You might also want to have a separate room within the building, so there’s a partition wall, and is within that room it could be used as say your yoga studio, as a place for you to work out, you could simply be somewhere that has a reclining chair seat, and watch the football after work?

Therefore we can build multiple rooms within your garden building, the building can therefore be used for multiple different purposes.

 

 

Soundproofed

Sometimes our garden rooms are built at the far end of the customers garden, and all that separates the property from the main road could be a garden fence.

Therefore, during the day, and night, at the end of your garden, you may be listening to cars, trucks and buses whizzing past your garden.
Therefore for some people this might be distracting, listening to all that road noise as they are trying to complete their work.

We can therefore install soundproofing out into the walls, the floor and ceiling, this won’t totally eliminate all of that noise, but what it will do is reduce the noise you hear within the garden building, if you combine this with triple glazing, then you will have a quieter room to work within.

 

 

Cost’s less than you might think

When you go on social media, let’s say on Instragram, and you start to look at various garden offices this have been constructed throughout the United Kingdom, then you might think that these garden buildings cost an absolute arm and a leg, right?

 

 

You might think well a garden office is totally out of our budget?

However, we build garden offices at very competitive prices, with prices start from just £18,000, offering fabulous value for money so you might so have seen a garden building which we have built on Facebook, or on Instagram, and you think, that’s totally out of price range.

But often when we tell people the price, they are pleasantly surprised with how affordable our garden offices are.

The other advantage of choosing our company is we can build a garden room extremely quickly, sometimes in less than 3 weeks.

So let’s say that you’re starting a brand-new job, and your new job wants you to work more from home say 3 days a week, so you may need a garden office constructed in the South-West of England and we can do this for you.

We have a team of builders that travels all over the South West, and often, the vast majority of the garden offices that we construct, are fully complete, and ready to move your furniture in in less than three weeks.

The benefits of having a sedum roof added to your garden building

 

When we think of the design of most garden rooms, we typically think of a square or a rectangular building, and the building is almost typically built using wood.

Often the customer then opts for a flat roof, that’s often made using either fibreglass or perhaps using rubber roofing.
And both of these types of roof are brilliant, if they are installed correctly, and if the company offers a long guarantee on the roof to offer the owner the peace of mind that the roof will last.

 

Green roofs

However, a lot of people prefer to have a green roof, which is sometimes also referred to as a “sedum roof”.
In a nutshell, this type of roof basically allows you to grow plants, grass or perhaps even vegetables on the roof.

We are going to explain the advantages and also some of the disadvantages of choosing a sedum roof.

What are the main benefits of opting to have a sedum roof added to your garden room?

 

Grow more plants

Some people don’t want their garden building to be the focal point of the garden, the centre of attention within their garden.

Therefore, some people opt to have a sedum roof installed by us, so that they can grow plants on the roof, they may also opt for composite cladding added to the outside, in a light or dark colour of green so that the building blends much better into the background of your garden.

There the garden building can blend more into say a holly bush behind the building, or into the trees.

The great thing about a sedum roof is that you can grow many plants, flowers even vegetables on the roof, which means that it’s great for the insects, it’s great for the birds, but visually your garden building also we think will look brilliant, and blend much better into the background of your garden.

Good for the wildlife

Wherever you can grow more plants, this normally means that more insects will quickly follow, which is good for the environment. What you could do is grow a lot of wildflowers on the roof of your garden building this would be great for the bees.

Just looks better

Let’s say that you’re looking out of the top upstairs window within your house, would you rather look down at a rubber roof, or perhaps you would look down and you see a green roof, that is covered in wildflowers, perhaps poppies growing during the summer?

 

Flowers

You might even want a huge amount of lavender growing on the sedum roof? And as you look out of your bedroom window you will see perhaps hundreds of honeybees or busy collecting there nectar from the lavender.

So, what are the disadvantages of opting for a sedum roof?

Well, the main disadvantages is the weight, if you’re going to add a lot of soil onto the roof, this can place a huge amount of strain onto the roof, due to all that extra weight, therefore the building needs to be constructed so that it can support all this weight.

Therefore, the garden building roof needs to be much stronger than how a normal garden room is constructed, it needs to be able to withstand all of that weight of the soil pushing down on the roof, and also you have to imagine the extra weight when the soil becomes completely saturated with water during heavy rain.

Thankfully we have the builders which are capable of building an extra strong garden room capable of withstanding all of that extra weight that the sedum roof will add to the garden room.

 

The disadvantages of a sedum roof

The cost

The cost to build a garden room, complete with a sedum roof, will cost a lot more to build than a normal garden room, that doesn’t have a sedum roof, the extra cost to build the roof could therefore be seen as a disadvantage to purchasing a sedum roof.

On the other hand, if you’re planning on staying at your property for perhaps a long period of time, you do have to consider the benefits of having a sedum roof, in that how it can visually improve the appearance of your whole garden.

For example, imagine your garden is a mass of lavender, wildflowers and other plants which are growing, and you have these growing all around your garden as well as on the roof of your garden room, this will simply look absolutely brilliant and it will create a place that you will want to spend time.

For example, sure you might be working in your garden office during the day so you can’t see the sedum roof from the inside, but just imagine on a summers evening, your sitting in a deck chair in your garden looking out at your garden room and the sedum roof, and you’re watching the birds land on the roof, the bees collecting their nectar, and you can see the lavender plants gently swaying in the wind on the roof, this will make a great place to spend your summer evenings.

 

Which areas do build garden buildings?

The vast majority of the garden buildings that we build, are mostly built in the fabulous Victorian city of Bath, which is a brilliant city in South-West England.

We are regularly building garden buildings in Bath, and we don’t just build garden buildings for residential customers, sometimes we are hired by companies to build wooden buildings, that are then used for commercial use, such as owning a small cafe, coffee shops or simply a place where people do yoga as you might run a company running Yoga classes in Bath.

Therefore, if you would like a garden building, built then why not give us a ring today? Prices start from 18k, so we offer great prices too.

We also build garden games rooms

 

 

How do you like to unwind after long day at work?

Do you enjoy playing snooker or watching the football on large screen television?

Or perhaps you like to simply sit in a comfortable chair, and enjoy a really nice glass of whiskey on the rocks?

We can build a games room for you, and in this article, we are going to explain why we are one of the best companies here in the U.K to contact when you want a garden games room constructed.

So, what exactly is a garden games room?

 

A lot of people like to play a game of snooker, or perhaps play retro arcade games, or simply like to collect and put together large jigsaw puzzles? Having a garden building built, that’s used as a games room, is now becoming very popular here in the U.K.

However, sometimes, the homeowner won’t have the space within their home, to dedicate a whole room to playing snooker for example, after a snooker table takes up a huge amount of space.

However, you might have quite a large garden, so why use part of your garden, to be used as a games room? With a starting price of £18k its clear see why our phones are very busy, booking in customers who want a garden building built by Kingsley Build.

So, a games room is simply a garden building, that’s often totally detached from your main house, that’s used as your place to simply go and unwind and enjoy a beer, watch or rugby, or simply a play of cards.

Are games rooms popular?

 

Most definitely, we have not built a huge number of garden buildings, which are used as a game room.
One of the reasons why we think games rooms are becoming more and more popular, is because if you walk into any top London pub, you will often see that for a very long period of time these great British pubs up within London often filled the pub with board games, like Jenga, often there will manysnooker tables retro arcade games, and possibly even Twister, so you can enjoy good quality beer and enjoy time with your friends.

A lot of people now want to replicate this great atmosphere created in many London pubs within their own home, they want a building that is freestanding from the house, that’s fully air-conditioned as well as heated through multiple radiators, so it can be used any time of the year, and to use that space as a place where the occupants can unwind perhaps enjoy playing a few games of snooker while drinking ale?

How much does a games room cost?

 

This does depend on design the building, for example, if you were to have hardwood cladding, perhaps want mahogany cladding on the outside, which is very expensive, this can increase the cost of the building, quite substantially. However on the other hand, if you were to opt for say Thermo wood, well, this type of cladding much cheaper for us to purchase, we can build a larger garden room at a lower cost.

Therefore, which cladding you choose, whether it be hardwood, composite or softwood, can have a huge bearing on how much the garden room costs.

Would you like a music room built?

 

Your music room could be used as a place to simply sit and listen to music, alternatively it could also be used as a place where you can practice playing a musical instrument, perhaps you play the electric guitar?

Just imagine for a second, that within the room you have a nice comfortable chair, perhaps a nice leather Chesterfield chair, and also fitted within the garden building is top of the range, simply brilliant quality speakers. Therefore you can listen to your favourite music within your garden room.

So, whether enjoy listening to jazz, or perhaps you enjoy listening rock ‘n’ roll, or perhaps you enjoy classical music, just imagine having a room which has really high-quality speakers installed, so you can sit nice and comfortably while sipping on a nice cocktail perhaps? This has to be a great way to unwind after a long and busy day at work, are we right?
So, why is our garden room company so popular?

This is an excellent question, because there are quite literally thousands of different businesses to choose from, which can build your games room.

However, there is a reason why we Keep getting chosen as the construction company to install a garden room, even though we are often not the cheapest company by a country mile.

The reason we are often hired, is because our buildings are built so they are exquisite quality, hand built on your garden by our master craftsmen. Our garden rooms are built to be durable, long-lasting therefore even though our company might often more expensive than what some other garden rooms might offer, they offer fantastic value for money because they are so long-lasting.

Arcade games

 

Perhaps you like to play old arcade games, everybody likes to play Pac man, right? Or alternatively Perhaps you like more modern games such as call of duty? Well you could dedicate the whole garden room to being used as a place to play arcade games or perhaps more modern games such as super Mario Bros’s?

Do you Fancy a game of snooker?

 

Often when you walk into a local pub, the snooker table will already be occupied, and might be occupied the whole night by a group of friends which continue to use it until the bell rings for last orders!

However, when you own a garden bar, what’s great about owning the garden bar is you could have a full-size snooker table inside, therefore there’s no waiting around the snooker table become available, because quite simply put you own the snooker table, plus you own the whole building. So there’s no waiting for the snooker table to become available, and there’s no queueing at the bar, because you owned the bar.

Perhaps you just enjoy doing word searches putting together puzzles?

 

You might be in your retirement, and you might live in the absolutely fantastic city of Bath, a city which we really like’s fantastic architecture.

Also the city of Bath, is a city where we build a huge number of garden buildings every single year, for the great residence of bath England.

Now you might be in retirement, and you simply want a room where you can go and unwind during day, perhaps to watch a bit of television, perhaps to complete a word search, or perhaps put together a puzzle?

And what’s great about having a garden building, constructed by us is, you could have a good quality building constructed, that is insulated, and we never used cheap low quality insulation that it’s used by some companies, no instead we use top quality insulation, which is very thick and our insulation does an excellent job at retaining the heat within your garden room.

So, with the flick of a switch, the radiators could be switched on, and after a short period of time the room the whole building will be nice and warm, and that warmth will be kept in the building for longer, thanks to that extra thick, top quality panel insulation which we have put into your summerhouse for you.

So, whether you want to wander down to your garden building in December, when it’s cold outside, or perhaps during July when it’s very warm outside, you can have a top-quality garden building built within your garden, that’s fully insulated, so even if it’s completely freezing outside, you could be warm garden building.

 

How long will it take you to construct a games room?

 

This is very difficult to say, because not one of our garden rooms are ever the same, there always a different size and also, they are often are built to have very different designs, for example some have metal cladding on the outside, and some have hardwood cladding, such as oak, which is more expensive and takes longer to add to the building.

Yet for most of our games rooms that we build, often are fully built in less than three weeks.

What features are absolutely essential when buying a garden building in the U.K?

 

We build Bath Garden Buildings

 

 

 

 

If you are currently shopping around to purchase a new garden room, then you might think, well they all look rather similar- they’re all the same, right?

You might think, the mostly made of timber, most have bi-folding doors, most even have similar cladding on the outside, such as Canadian red cedar- so they’re all pretty much a standard design, right?

Well not really, sure, a lot of companies which build quality buildings, build them similar to how other companies build them. However, this doesn’t mean that everything you will need, such as top-quality insulation, will always be added to the garden room.

 

 

 

 

Why it’s important, to hold your horses, and shop around when buying a garden room

The quality of a garden building can vary hugely between which companies you choose, so we thought it would be a good idea to write an in-depth article explaining what we think is essential when buying a garden room.

So, this is going to be quite a long article, so we would recommend sticking the kettle on, and making yourself a nice cup of tea- while you’re at it, why not treat yourself to a few biscuits?

 

 

Long life cladding (we always recommend composite)

 

The problem with using some types of soft woods, such as pine, is that some types of softwood can rot if they’re not properly maintained.

For example, let’s take pine as an example, when it’s freshly cut, it looks brilliant, it has a nice colour, and even smells brilliant when it’s cut.

However, if the wood is not properly sealed, and by that we mean if it’s not properly varnished or painted, then it can start to absorb a large amount of water. Which means two things, damp can start the occur within the building, but also, the wood can actually start to become water stained, so can actually start to turn black.

So we would most definitely, recommend instead opting for composite cladding, it is often more expensive, then softwood, however it’s often guaranteed to last.

Plus, the great thing about composite, is that once it’s been added to the side of your garden room, you can pretty much not have to maintain it at all.

If you were to choose a softwood option, then you might have to paint it every single year, or varnish it, otherwise it might start to turn water stained.

 

 

Durable roof (we always recommend rubber roofing)

It rains a lot during the winter here in Britain, but also it rains a lot in the summer months as well. Which means that, we would most definitely recommend, purchasing a roof, which is guaranteed to last say a minimum of 10 years.

So, what you need is a long-lasting, but really durable roof, that is able to withstand our wet British climate.

For example, when we got hailstones, bearing down on a roof, if the roof is not really high quality, and water can start ingress into the roof, and eventually cause a leak within the summerhouse. Nobody, wants to be spending say 20,000 on a garden room, and then after a relatively short period of time, have water leaks from the roof, and having to put plastic buckets to collect the drips of water!
So, we would recommend a rubber roof, that has a long guarantee.

 

Decking

It’s important to think about muddy shoes for a second, because within your garden office or your room, you might have a nice hardwood flooring on the floor.

But also, often you have to walk through your garden, and even if you have a pathway leading to your garden room, you are still going to get mud on your shoes, which will eventually can end up within the garden room.

Therefore, you don’t want the inside of your garden building, to look like Glastonbury music festival! In that there might be mud everywhere.

 

Alarm system and quality locks

Within your garden building, you might have many valuable items, such as an Apple laptop for example.

We would therefore recommend that the windows and doors, have high quality locks fitted.

We would also recommend a quality alarm system is fitted, which provides you alerts to your smart phone.

 

Toilet and wash hand basin

If you’re using your garden building, as a place to work, so you might be working within your garden office say 30 hours plus per week, then we would recommend having a lavatory and a wash hand basin fitted.
If you got a long garden, you’re not going to want to be running down your garden to the house every time you need the toilet.
Therefore, we would recommend having a toilet and wash hand basin fitted.

 

Rock-solid foundations

We’ve heard of garden rooms, being built and patio slabs used as the foundations, this will not work.
The problem with this is, the weight of your garden room is going to bear down on those pavement slabs, potentially causing them to break or sink into the soil. Then, what can happen is, the whole garden building moves, causing large structural damage.
So, a word to the wise, purchase a garden room that comes with rock-solid foundations, either have ground screws installed, which we would recommend our installed by a specialist ground screw company, which guarantees how much weight they can carry.
Or alternatively, have a thick concrete foundation installed.

 

 

 

 

Many oil filled radiators

A lot of our customers, use their garden building, as a place where they work full time. So, it’s important that the room can be easily heated, and that it doesn’t take forever and the day for the garden office to warm up.

The solution we believe, is to pack the walls with really good quality insulation (panel insulation or sheep’s wool insulation) .Yet also, to have more than one oil filled radiator fitted. Plus, we would recommend opting for oil filled radiators, which can be switched on remotely, using an app on your smartphone.

The reason for this is let’s say that your starting work it’s 9 AM, at 8:30 PM, while you’re having breakfast within your house, you could simply switch on your smartphone, and switch on your oil filled radiators, so before you step foot within the garden room, it’s nice and warm for you to start work.

Do you run a business from home? Here’s how a garden building could help you

 

We are most certaintly a country of entrepreneurs, innovators and business great minds- we are a country after all that the great Brunel came from, one of the many great innovators, who made this country the great place it is. 

Yet, a lot of businesses, and innovators, can’t sometimes get their business off the ground these days because of very high running costs, that’s to say the costs of commercial rent, business rates, utilities, are just too much for some businesses to pay, especially when their just setting up.

So, we think we have the solution.

A well-built garden room, built by us, it doesn’t cost the earth, its built quickly, its long lasting.

So, that means no rent, and when you consider how much it costs to rent a small shop today, well, lets put it this way, it costs a lot of money.

 

  • So, do you run a beauty business, such as installing hair extensions?
  • Are you a self-employed web designer?
  • Do you sell items online, and need somewhere to store your stock?

Well, why not call us, we build garden buildings starting from 18k, you will own the building, so no paying rent.

 

A quiet place to get your work done

So, whether you’re sending off some invoices, working on improving your company website, or simply writing an e-mail, often a lot of people like somewhere quiet, somewhere where you can concentrate on getting your work done.

In your house, you might be distracted, by say someone running the hoover around, or someone knocking on the front door, trying to sell you double glazing.

So, a garden building, allows a nice quiet place, where you can get your work completed.

 

Do you want to meet your clients at home

So, do you run say a beauty business?

You might sell hair extensions, so, instead of renting a place on the Highstreet, which might cost an absolute arm and leg to rent, you could have a large, luxury garden room built, complete with a kitchen to make clients a tea or coffee, and a bathroom.

You the have the best of both worlds in our view, you’re not paying high rental costs, to rent a shop on the Highstreet- also, when works done, in between seeing clients, your house is less than 30 seconds walk from the garden building-just think of the petrol you will save!

Barbers, nail saloon, freelance web designers- why not buy a garden room from us?
Calling all you great entrepreneurs, often in less than 3 weeks, we can build a garden building, and prices start from an unbelievably low 18k.

So, why not give us a ring? And we can tell you more about our garden rooms.

 

Costs less than you might think

When you see a garden room on say Instagram, and it has large bi-folding doors, good quality cladding, and it well built, well, you might be thinking, that’s going cost an arm and leg- but what if we told you, that we offer to build quality garden buildings, which are bespoke, for 18k.

We offer great prices, so whether you’re a barber, perhaps you’re an accountant that works from home, or perhaps you’re a interior designer, and you need a place that you can run your business from, we have the perfect solution, a well-built, long lasting garden room built by us.

 

Do you build large garden buildings?

We do yes, all over the U.K we build large garden rooms, for example, you might want a garden building which spans over 10 metres wide. However large you want the building to be built, we can build a garden building to any width and length that you would like.
Our buildings can be so large, sometimes, customers have 3 members of staff comfortably working inside. Within the building can be a bathroom, so why rent? When you own the building outright, when you have a garden building by us.

Less commuting time

So, let’s say you’ve seen your last customer of the day, and you’re a mortgage advisor, well, rather than having to hop in the car and be stuck in traffic, burning diesel or petrol, well, instead, you can just lock up the building, and walk back to the house.
Just think of all that fuel that you save!

 

Get better value with us

So, there’s garden rooms, then there’s garden rooms-and what we mean by that?

Well, a garden room can either last a very long time, and be brilliant quality, and offer the owner excellent value for money.

On the other hand, some companies construct garden rooms, which quite simply just start falling apart. The roof may even start leaking within years, so for example, let’s say on the roof it has an OSB board, which is just a wooden board, and to make it waterproof the builder might have used tar felt roofing.

However, if the tar felt roofing is low quality, then it might start to rip, it might come away from the wooden board, then leaks can occur.

 

Solar panels

We can also offer to install very high quality, solar panels, which can be fitted directly onto your garden room roof. Because most garden rooms, have a flat roof, it makes a brilliant space, the place solar panels. And, there might well be a spot in your garden, which receives a lot of sunlight right throughout the whole day-therefore it makes good sense, to be turning the light into an electric.

 

Don’t pay high rental costs

We mentioned this point earlier, but it’s most definitely worth mentioning again. Let’s say that you run a business, you have a few quiet weeks, well often, the rent will stay the same, as a fixed cost. This is what forces many businesses in Britain into bankruptcy, because, the operating costs, how much it cost to rent a business premises is a lot of money.

However, if we build a garden building for you, at an affordable price, then you will own the building outright.

Therefore, you won’t be paying rent, you will own the building, which means that you haven’t got to worry about finding the rent every single month.

Easier for you, less traveling

travelling back and fore work, depending on how far your house is from the work of course, can be an expensive business. For example, there’s the costs of diesel, petrol but also entering clean air zones, and all these costs can add up quite a considerable monthly expense.

However, by owning a garden building, you will have the convenience of working from home, therefore you won’t be commuting as much, so your travel expenses will be less.
We have now built so many garden buildings used as garden offices or a place of business

 

All year around use

So sure, most garden room companies, picture the garden building, on a nice hot summer’s day.

And on a nice hot summer’s day, when all the flowers are in full bloom, grasses nice and someone is pictured enjoying a nice glass of wine, on the decking, well the summerhouse will look absolutely brilliant.
But what about winter, when all the flowers are dead, is called outside, and you might not fancy to drink your bottle of Chardonnay on the decking when the weather is subzero.

Well thankfully, all of our garden buildings are insulated, with top quality insulation. So, they are a piece of cake to warm up inside, because all you have to do is switch on the electric oil filled radiators. In a short amount of time, you will be nice and warm inside a garden building that’s been built by us.

 

How much do your garden buildings cost?

We offer some of the best prices to build bespoke buildings, prices start from £18,000. We can also create 3-D drawings, so you will know exactly what the building will look like, prior to it being constructed. For example, you might want to change the rubber roof, to a sedum roof.

We can change the drawings and send them to you, to see if you approve.

 

Can you add a bathroom within our garden building?

Yes, we can add a complete bathroom suite, we can even add a large claw footed Bath, if you would like when installed within your bathroom? Why not push the boat out, and have a freestanding bath made from copper? These looks brilliant in any bathroom.
We can completely tile the bathroom for you, as well as installing an electric towel rail, also we can put an extractor fan within the bathroom as well.

Here’s why so many people are buying their garden offices from us

 

Introduction

Throughout the city of Bath, many homeowners are choosing Kingsley Build to construct their garden office and rooms. And the reason is, we offer super long guarantees, much longer than what some other companies are offering, and the reason we can do that, is because we build quality, and we only ever use top quality building materials.

Whether its roof lanterns, top quality bi-folding doors, or composite cladding, we only buy quality. And this means, you be obtaining a long lasting, durable, energy efficient garden office.

Within this article we are going to explain, through seven different reasons, why so many people hire us to build their garden office.

Made to last

The main reason, why hundreds of people have choosing Kingsley build, is quite simply because, each of our buildings is bespoke, and extremely well made. Our buildings therefore last the test of time, and we are so confident that they are well built, to a very high standard, then we offer a long guarantee on every single building which we construct.

Therefore, the reason why, we’ve built so many garden offices in Bath, in England, is because our customers have the peace of mind that they have bought quality garden building, which is guaranteed to last. Where some companies purely focus the whole business around profit, our company is completely different we focus on quality, this means that we then get recommend it by our previous customers to their friends and family.

Therefore, we have built quality garden offices on a street, and the buildings have been shown to neighbours, who then gone on to ask us to build a garden office for them as well.

And what’s great about our buildings is, they look fantastic once they are built, but you can return back to them in three years’ time, and they still look brilliant.

Now this is not the same for some garden rooms, sometimes garden offices built by other companies, sometimes develop leaking roofs, and another common problem is that the cladding is low quality so it becomes stained with the rain. So, where it might have been a nice freshly cut wood, the look brilliant when the garden building was installed, because it’s a softwood hasn’t been properly varnished, sometimes the rainwater can make the softwood to black and even start to rot and decay.

So, our company is different we are about building quality garden buildings, which are made to last

Reason number 1) Insulated, so you are nice and warm in winter

We use panel insulation, panel insulation has a thick centre, that’s normally made from white or yellow coloured foam. On the outside is a reflective backing, and this comes in various thickness, it does an absolutely amazing job, at keeping the warm air in your garden office for longer. When you combine with quality oil filled electric heaters, and the insulation is placed not just in the side walls, but it the ceiling and the floor, when the heating switched on, you will be nice and warm while working in your garden office.

 

Reason number 2) long lasting roof

Some garden room companies, save money buy fitting a cheap roof, the roof might only last then 3 years before leaks occur, and either the roof need redoing, or sometimes, the whole garden room needs replacing.

This is why on all of our garden rooms, we fit a rubber roof, there more expensive to buy but when fitted right, by highly experienced flat roofers, a rubber roof can last a very long period of time. The reason is, a rubber roof, is made by one single piece of rubber quite often, and this means with a rubber roof, there’s less to go wrong, plus rubber is highly durable, so it lasts a long period of time.
And our opinion because here in Great Britain, it rains a lot, the best roofing option for any garden office, is to have a rubber roof fitted.

 

Reason number 3) quality bi-folding doors

So, all bi-folding doors are all same, quality, right?
Well, not really-let us explain, some bi-folding doors open easily, help to improve the energy efficiency of the building, and look great.

However, on the other hand, some bi-folding doors can be clunky to open, have gaps within the frame and where the doors meet the frame, meaning they’re not energy efficient, and then, there some that mist-up and condensation appears in the window frames.
So, our garden offices, always come with quality bi-folding doors, the company we use to manufacturer the bi-folding doors are not the cheapest supplier, but they do build quality, and that’s why time and time again, we return to buy from them. Because they build bi-folding doors, which are made to last, and open and close smoothly. And they also come with quality locks, and locking system, so that’s another reason to hire our garden room company, because we only purchase top quality bi-folding doors.

 

Reason number 4) plastered and painted

We can fully plaster the inside of your garden office, then we can return when the plaster is dry, and completely paint the inside for you. Will you opt for Dulex, Crown or perhaps Farrow and Ball paint?
Whichever colour you select, we can paint your garden office for you, then its just a matter of bringing in your furniture, and you will be ready to start working in your garden office.

Reason number 5) Super long guarantees

Some companies don’t guarantee their garden offices for that long at all, simply because they know the garden room, may develop leaks. Or the cladding might rot, or simply because they know the building is not insulated, and doesn’t have a breathable membrane, so is likely to be damp.

Our garden rooms are completely different they are made to last, they are high quality, and this is why, we have built hundreds of garden offices, and on every building, we build, our company Kingsley Build offers a long guarantee, whether it’s a garden bar, garden gym, or a garden office, we offer very long guarantees.

Reason number six) 3-D designs

A garden room, will be in your garden for a very long period of time, therefore it needs to look brilliant.
And we can offer you hundreds of different exterior cladding options, we can offer composite decking, with glass balustrades and also a sedum roof.

And we can help you to visualise what your garden office will look like, before we started work on constructing it, we can do that by creating 3-D designs.

Once you see the designs, you might instantly think, yes, that’s exactly what I want built. Then you may call us, give us the go-ahead, and we start constructing your garden office the following week.

Alternatively, you might not like the look of the cladding, you might want to change it to a different colour, for example you might have had grey composite cladding, and now you want a green colour cladding. We can change the drawings, send them to you for approval, and once you approve the designs, we can start the construction work for you.
We can create the 3-D drawings at a very low cost.

Reason seven

Demolition of your existing garage, or shed. At the end of your garden, might be a garage which is seen better days.
The roof might have fallen in, and you therefore no longer use the garage or the shed.

You might want us to demolish your garage or shed, and we work with highly experienced demolition contractors, which can take away your old garage or shed, and then in its place we can build you a garden room.

Are you interested in a quote?

For the past five years, we’ve been building high-quality garden offices and rooms throughout the Cotswolds, Bristol and Bath. We are therefore an established business, we build bespoke, very high-quality garden buildings. Our prices start from just £18,000, so therefore if you would like a garden bar, garden office or perhaps a garden gym constructed, then why not give us a ring?

 

Why are garden bars so popular?

 

Introduction

We’ve built a huge amount of garden bars, ranging from a gin bar, filled with hundreds of various bottles of gin, through to a garden bar which is stocked with local ciders.

Garden bars are popular for a range of reasons, after all, in some bars, a pint of beer is now getting close to 7 pound a pint!
Separate to that, another reason is the garden bar makes a great place to meet your friends and your family. Because the building is insulated, it means that you can use it during the winter or the summer. Therefore, even if it’s snowing outside, you can still go to your garden bar and a nice refreshing pint.

 

Do your garden bars come in a flatpack form?

No, one of our garden bars, are built in your garden, they are lots therefore flatpack. Instead, our garden bars, are built to the exact dimensions you want, plus you can specify which cladding, which doors you would like, as well as choosing from other options, such as air conditioning.

Is there a long waiting list, before you can start work?

No, sometimes we can start work, on building your garden bar, the very next week. For example, we might come out and meet you, let’s say on a Saturday morning, to offer you a quote, then sometimes, we are able to start construction work on the Monday if the quote is approved.

With that said, during the summer is normally our busiest time, and sometimes there is a waiting list of active it can start work.
Normally, however during the winter we can start work more or less straightaway, on building your garden room.
Will the garden building, be built in an environmentally friendly way?

We can use, reclaimed timbers, to construct the building. You could also choose to have composite cladding, which is very easy to clean, but it is also made using recycled plastics. We can also add multiple solar panels onto your roof for you.

Plus, we could use extra thick, panel insulation, which does a brilliant job at retaining heat during the winter.

If you would like a more environmentally friendly insulation option, we can even offer sheep’s wool, insulation we can add, sheep’s wool into the walls, and this does an amazing job at helping to keep the warm air within your garden building during the winter.
Are your builders highly experienced?

Yes, we employ some highly experienced carpenters, they are able to build the whole building, so that it is really well built. We are so confident, that your garden building, will be built to last, with our company offers a very long guarantee period.

In matter of fact, we guarantee our garden buildings to last much longer than what some of the companies guarantee their buildings for.

So, if you’re looking for a garden room company in Bath, which guarantees their garden rooms for a long period of time then why not contact us.

The reason why guarantee our garden buildings for so long, is because we use rubber roofs, high-quality cladding, and also very good quality bi folding doors, when all of this is constructed by our builders, we know that we have built a durable and long-lasting building, that’s why we are able to offer a long guarantee.

How much do garden bars cost in the UK?

Prices do vary depending on which garden room company you hire; however, our prices start from just £18,000. This is for insulated garden bar, complete with a long-lasting roof, bi folding doors, as well as all of the electrics installed as well.

Have you built many garden bars?

We most certainly have, we’ve built a large number of buildings, which have been used as a bar.

Often, people like to watch the rugby for the football, and to enjoy a pint of draught beer as they watch the game. Therefore, a garden building, makes a perfect place to have your friends over and to watch the latest football match.

So, whether you support Manchester United, or perhaps you’re an Arsenal supporter? Why not have a garden bar built, so that you could have sky TV installed, you could have a large bar, so that you can pull a pint of beer while supporting your football team

 

Can you add a bathroom to our garden bar?

Yes, we most certainly can, we can add a complete bathroom for you.

 

What are some of the main benefits of owning a garden bar?

No queueing at the bar, and no taxis
waiting for a taxi, especially in the rain, can be a little bit annoying. So can queueing at the bar, especially when people pushing the bar.

Therefore, when you own a garden bar, you won’t have to queue at the bar, because you’re your own landlord. You can pull yourself a nice refreshing pint whenever you want.

Just think of all that money you will save, in Bath Somerset, not having to pay the taxis, and not having to buy expensive rounds at the bar, after all should a pint of beer becoming close to 7 pound a pint in some pubs?

 

No last orders

When that bell rings at the local pub, you have to make your last orders, before the landlady or landlord shuts the pub the night.

However, what is great about owning your own garden building, stocked with your favourite ales, beers and spirits, is that there are no last orders, and instead of having to wait for a taxi, at the end of the night, you can simply walk the length of your garden back to your house.

It’s clear therefore why hundreds of homeowners, living throughout Bath, which is a city within England, have already had garden bars built. Especially when you consider locally there are fantastic breweries, for example having tried Bath ales? We would highly recommend having a pint of Bath ale, it’s a great tasting pint.

 

Kitchen/bar

We can build a massive garden bar, within the building could be a kitchen area. This is great for preparing perhaps a salad, or a tasty pizza with some pasta. Then you could take the food outdoors onto your decking, to eat, or you could eat it within your garden bar.
Complete landscaping plus garden bar

We understand that when a lot of people in Bath, want a garden bar constructed, they also want to improve the whole garden at the same time.

For example, they might want a patio, or perhaps a pizza oven built, what’s great about hiring Kingsley, is that we can build a garden bar for you, but what we can also do is, offer you landscaping services.

 

For example, we can build a patio, or perhaps you would like decking built?

We can also build a pizza oven, so that you could have authentic woodfired pizzas.

 

We can also lay new turf, or perhaps you would like artificial grass laid?

 

How long does it take to build a garden bar?

This does depend on how large the garden bar is, as well as whether you want ground screws used as the foundation, or would you prefer a concrete base?

If you would prefer a concrete base, then this will take us longer to build, because when we build a concrete base we have to wait for the concrete to dry before we can start work on building the rest of your garden bar.

 

Why our garden offices make such a brilliant place to work

 

 

 

Are you a budding entrepreneur? Or, alternatively, do you work for a business, that’s now asked you to switch to working from home more often, so that your now hybrid working?

In either case, you’re going to need a place where you can work comfortably, after all, for many of us, working full-time, we might easily be working well over 30 hours a week, so the garden building needs to be comfortable.

We’ve now built many garden offices, we have also demolished many old garages, sheds and greenhouses, in a part of a garden, where the homeowner might not have used that area of the garden that much at all before.

We can cut back old hedges, remove an old bush, and demolish your garden shed; it’s place we can then build a garden office.
We can build garden offices which are simply top quality, offering a place where you can comfortably work, that is quiet, that is comfortable, that insulated, and the best part is it’s only a short walk from your house.

So, when you own a garden office, and haven’t got to travel to a workplace on a daily basis, just think of all that diesel, electric and petrol you will save not having to drive back and for the office.

In this article we are going to explain why we think a garden office simply makes a brilliant place to work.

 

Soundproofed

A lot of people like to work in a room which is nice and quiet, so you don’t want to have the distractions of someone shouting up the stairs, what’s for dinner each day?

You also don’t want to hear cars whizzing past outside, so what we would recommend is having soundproofing added to your garden office. Our builders can do this for you at a very competitive price.

We can even offer double glazing or triple glazing, both of which can help to keep sound out.

Therefore, once you walked into your garden office, shut all the windows and doors, you have a nice quiet place where you can concentrate on getting your work completed.

 

Switch off

If you are running your own business, then it is entirely possible that you will be working very long hours every single day.
However, if your office is within your house, you might want to keep going back to say your Apple laptop, and check your work e-mails to reply to clients even when the working day is over, you might therefore find yourself, replying to work emails at eight p.m.!

However, if you own a garden office, you can shut your computer off, lock the door on your garden office, and leave work within the garden office until the following day.

 

Fully insulated

Buying a garden office is a bit like buying a winter jacket, there are some jackets which look fashionable and look brilliant, but they don’t do a very good job at keeping you warm in the winter.

And this is the same, for some summerhouses, they may look brilliant, but if they are not insulated, they are not going to keep you warm in the winter.

So, sure we can make your garden room look simply brilliant, but we can also build your garden office so it’s fully insulated as well, so it doesn’t just look brilliant, it also helps to keep you nice and warm in winter.

This does an absolutely fantastic job at keeping the heat within the room.

 

Light and airy

Have you ever worked in a large office, working under artificial light all day, with no natural light coming through the windows?

What are the benefits of buying an insulated garden office?

 

7 August 2023

 

A lot more people than ever before, have now made the switch to working from home. Or at least, are now hybrid working, so they are working from home part of the week. As you drive through most large cities, you will see that a lot of the large office blocks are now for rent, and are vacant, as even large employers are now asking their employees to work from home.

This is meant that garden offices, which are well insulated, well built, and now in more demand than ever.

However, with that said, the building has to be suitable to be used all year round. Otherwise, during the cold winter months, you may find that if you buy an uninsulated garden building, that it’s simply way too cold to work within. This simply means that the building needs to be well insulated.

 

So, what types of insulation would we recommend?

We would recommend:

• Panel insulation
• sheep’s wool insulation
• Fibreglass insulation

 

 

Why not also have underfloor heating?

For a low-cost, we can also install underfloor heating. Having underfloor heating installed will make it much more comfortable for you to work within your garden office during the winter months.
We will of course install insulation into the floor, however by having underfloor heating, the floor will be nice and warm, helping to keep your feet warm during the winter.

With rising energy prices, it’s crucial that you pick a company that can build an energy-efficient building
sometimes, the cheapest quote, to build a garden building, might not be the cheapest quote when you consider the cost of owning a garden building.

For example, if the building is poorly insulated, then all of that he to discover simply escape through the ceiling and through the walls.
And when you consider how costly electric is at the moment as well as gas, well you going to want to make your garden building as energy-efficient as possible.

We build very energy-efficient buildings, and we think the best way of doing this is to put very thick panel insulation into the ceiling, is the floor and into the walls.

We can even offer to install solar panels, which can offset the running costs of owning a garden room.

 

 

Warm in winter and cool in summer

Here in Great Britain, our seasons are very different, they could be described in terms of polar opposites terms of temperature. That simply because we can go from applying suncream, and wearing sunglasses, through to our winters where we have to wear multiple layers of clothing, and even thermal clothing because our winters can be so cold here in Britain.

However, when you’re busy working away within your garden office, and your writing numerous emails, well it’s not going to be comfortable for most people to spend the whole winter in a cold garden room wearing thermal clothing. Instead, you’re going to want to be nice and warm working in your garden office.

So, the solution is, to purchase a well-insulated garden building, which are sometimes described as fully insulated garden rooms.
However, when you hire us, to build your garden room, the whole building will be insulated, which simply means that it’s easier to keep warm in the winter and cool in summer months.

 

 

How do you ensure that your garden offices can be used all year round?

Describing a garden room that’s insulated, the word insulated can be a rather vague description, that’s because some garden room companies put insulation into the walls which is wafer thin, and sometimes the insulation, might only be as thick as a piece of cardboard!

What’s needed instead is for the building to be insulated, that’s the same quality insulation as you would use if you were to construct an extension onto your house. You want insulation that is very thick, that’s going to do good job at helping to keep the building warm within the winter.

So, we can offer you different insulation options, the options that we can offer you, we can offer you panel insulation, we would also highly recommend considering sheep’s wool insulation. We can also place rock wall into the walls for you. What’s crucial is that the building is well insulated.

 

 

Breathable

It’s really important that your garden room and garden office has a breathable design, otherwise inside the garden building moisture can quickly build up. And this can lead to the plasterboard becoming damp, and possibly showing signs of black spores, which can be damaging to your health.

It’s therefore important that your garden building, is built, so that it has a breathable design.

 

 

Triple glazing or double glazing

It’s really important, whether you choose wooden framed windows, UPVC windows or perhaps aluminium framed windows, that you choose quality double glazing.

We also can offer to install triple glazing as well, and this can really improve the energy efficiency of the garden room.

 

 

A very high-quality roof

Underneath the roof, needs to be high quality roof insulation, otherwise when you have the electric radiators on within the garden building, the heat will just simply escape through the roof. Therefore, it’s important that the roof is well insulated, and also that you pick a quality roof that will last a very long period of time, we would highly recommend picking rubber roof.

 

 

Oil filled radiators

We can install, oil filled radiators, if you have a large garden building, instructed by us then we can place many oil filled radiators in every single room.

What’s great about our oil filled radiators, is that they can be switched on remotely from your smartphone, such as your iPhone.
You can therefore switch on your heating within your garden room on your phone, so while you’re having breakfast in your house, you can simply switch on your phone, and you can switch on the heating within your garden office.

Then when you’re ready to start work, in your garden office, all you have to do walk in and start working, the room will then be nice and warm because you will have switched on the heating on say one hour before you start work.

 

 

Why rent office space?

Even renting one desk, in a shared office space, in a large city can sometimes be very expensive, for example, even renting a single desk in shared office space, can sometimes cost between £300 and £500 per month depending on location. This is expensive when you consider that all you have is a single desk, within a shared office space.

Plus, if you’re renting shared office space, and sometimes it can be a very noisy environment to work within.
So, what’s great about getting a garden office built by us, is that you never have to pay expensive prices to rent the office.

Our Prices start from a very low starting price of just £18,000, so you will only your own building, therefore you won’t have to pay expensive rent to a company to rent the office space.

 

 

Built in less than three weeks

The vast majority, the garden offices that we construct, are fully built in less than three weeks.

With prices starting from just £18,000, it’s clear to see why we are fast-growing garden room company.

Which exterior cladding will you choose for your garden building?

 

Introduction

We build a lot of garden rooms within the city of Bath, which is within South West England every single year. And our customers, can choose from a wide range cladding options. For example, our customers can choose from metal cladding, hardwood cladding, softwood cladding and also composite cladding.

We are now going to talk about, some of the more popular exterior cladding options that our customers choose when they are having a garden office or a garden room constructed.

Canadian red cedar

A lot of our customers, when they are having a garden building constructed, choose to have Canadian red cedar timber. This is a very popular, Canadian red cedar is white expensive timber to purchase, but it does look absolutely brilliant on any garden room. Often because this is quite an expensive timber to purchase, our customers may just choose to have the front of the building clad with this timber.

Then what can do is clad the other three sides with steel sheets, this will lower costs for us to build the garden room.
Alternatively, if you would like the whole building clad with Canadian red cedar, then we can clad the whole outside using this timber.

 

Oak cladding

We can also clad the outside of the garden building with oak, again this is an expensive option, but oak looks absolutely brilliant once it’s added to a garden building.

Composite cladding made with recycled plastics

We can also offer to clad the entire outside of your garden building, with composite cladding, and the composite cladding can be made from recycled plastics.

A lot of different products are now made using recycled plastics, for example, some park benches, decking even waste bins can now be made from composite.

Composite can also need to look like timber, for example the composite cladding need to look like it has a wood grain even though it’s composite, and made from recycled plastic.

If you are looking for a cladding option which is environmentally friendly, then we would recommend composite cladding, which is made with recycled plastics. There are many other benefits, to choosing composite cladding, the main benefit is it doesn’t ever need to be painted.

The other benefit is composite cladding is extremely long-lasting, if you pick a good quality brand, and we can recommend good quality brands to you.

Steel cladding

A lot of buildings, such as buildings that are built on farms and many commercial buildings, are built using steel cladding. The reason why steel cladding is used, is because it’s long-lasting, it’s low maintenance, and also its relatively low-cost. We can therefore clad the outside of your garden building using steel cladding, this type of cladding comes in a range of different colours, for example you might want steel cladding which is green, grey or black?

Softwood cladding

The lowest cost cladding which we offer, is softwood cladding, for example cladding which is made from pine. This type of cladding looks brilliant, yet it is very low-cost, therefore if you are having a large garden building constructed, which requires a lot of cladding, then why not have it clad with pine softwood. Our builders, can also varnish the cladding for you, we can then recommend varnishes which you might want to then use yourself in the future to protect the wood.

A well-known company within Bath

We’ve now built so many garden buildings, we are well known company within the city of Bath. We are well known for building high-quality buildings.

 

Experience

We have over five years’ experience, building bespoke, garden rooms of exquisite quality across South-West England. We only use the finest quality timbers, plus we only appoint top quality manufacturers of roofing, doors and windows to supply us with these products.
Our garden buildings are therefore often miles apart in terms of quality, when compared to some other garden room manufacturers. We are so confident in the quality of our product, that we offer a very long guarantee on our garden rooms.

Built to last, made in Bath

Our garden rooms are not manufactured in a light industrial unit, through being stapled together with a staple gun, and then flat packed to a customer. No, instead every single building, is handmade, within Bath in your garden.

This means that the building is not flatpack, instead, we bring the timber, the nails and the roofing into your garden and construct the hall building within your garden completely from scratch.

Made to last

There are some companies, which manufacture summerhouses, which are all about profit, thinking about ways in which they can build the entire building as cheaply as possible.

However, we turned this idea totally on its head, what with thinking about instead, is how can we build the building so it is superb quality, so that we stand head and shoulders above our direct competitors. How can we engineer quality into everything we do? This is the mindset that we take when we are building a garden building.

Therefore, some companies might simply around a few door suppliers, and opt for the cheapest price, after all the bi folding door, is it bi folding door, surely?

Well, we beg to differ, a bi folding door can actually be an absolute breeze to open, with minimal effort to open and close the door. On the other hand, there’s the cheap UPVC bi folding doors, which don’t open and close easily at all, in matter-of-fact they might need a hard shove to open, and this can mean that it can be difficult to get in and out of your garden room.

However, when you hire Kingsley, you don’t have to worry about the quality of any of our building materials, because everything from the doors, to the flooring to the roof simply top quality, we have gone through great lengths to make sure that we only obtain top quality building materials.

We know our customers in Bath, in England, want top quality garden rooms, and that’s exactly what we deliver, and we partner with door suppliers, roof suppliers and also timber suppliers, that simply supply us with very high-quality doors, flooring and roof.

 

Guaranteed to last

There are some companies which manufacture log cabins, and they would like you to purchase them online and to assemble yourself as a do-it-yourself project. And yes, hey presto, over the course of the bank holiday weekend you might have built a large log cabin within your garden, it might even cost less than £7000.

Yet if the timber starts to rot, the roof starts to leak, and the building becomes damp and smelly, this is a total waste of time and money. Then you have the expensive demolishing the building, placing it in a skip for it to be taken away.
Our buildings are more expensive, they start from £18,000, however you have total peace of mind that they are guaranteed to last a long period of time.

 

Don’t pay over the top

There are some companies which charge allots to build a garden building, even though our buildings are very high quality, they start at a very low price, just £18,000. Some other companies in Bath, within South West England, can’t even come close to this price, yet we can offer low price, because we have a large team of installers.

Our installers, install hundreds garden rooms every year, so they can build any size garden room easily and very quickly.
In matter-of-fact, sometimes we are able to build a concrete base, and the entire garden building in less than two weeks. This is absolutely astonishing, when you consider the quality of the buildings we are building.
