Can your garden rooms be used during the coldest of winter days?



When you purchase a garden building, it’s a substantial purchase for most homeowners. It’s not a building you’ll just want to use on the odd warm summer day- you may want to use the building right throughout the winter as well.

And a lot of our customer will want to use, say, their garden office, even if it’s absolutely freezing outside.
Therefore, this raises the question, can the building be used throughout the winter?


Our buildings can be used 365 days a year

There are some garden buildings, built by some companies you might not want to venture into during the winter unless you wear a thick ski jacket and perhaps good quality thermals underneath.

And that is because you might have purchased a building that looks fabulous during the summer, perhaps you went to see it in a local summerhouse show room, yet come the winter, you might be frozen within the garden room due to the lack of insulation.

Therefore, you need to hire a construction company like ours, which will spend the time discussing all the various insulation options we can offer. Sometimes, customers will want multiple layers of insulation to ensure the room can be used right throughout the year.


We can offer the following types of insulation:

– Sheeps wool
– Panel insulation
– Rockwool insulation


We also construct garden rooms during the winter months

Some landscaping companies do most of their work during the summer months, so they might not build many garden rooms during the winter.

However, we have a full-time team installing garden offices and rooms during the winter as well in autumn, spring and summer months.


How can we heat the garden room?

Heating the garden room is very simple to do; you can simply just switch on oil-filled radiators, and the room will be nice and warm very quickly.


Will drafts be coming through the walls?

You can see sometimes shards of light coming through the external walls in some cheap, low-quality log cabins. In winter, huge drafts will therefore be flowing into the building, and it will be tough to keep warm as well as very expensive, in terms of running costs, due to amount of electric that will be needed to heat the room.

Our buildings are different; they have a breathable membrane fitted on every wall, outer wooden cladding that helps keep the rain out, internal insulation then keeps the cool or warm air in, and plasterboard, which helps keep the room nice and warm.



Are your buildings guaranteed to last?

Yes, we offer a comprehensive guarantee on all of our garden buildings.

We also want to work within the building during the summer, so how would you keep the building cool on those warmer days?

It’s essential to think about how you will heat the garden building, but also, equally, how you will cool the room come the summer months.

We could add a high-quality air conditioning unit for you, so cooling the room is an absolute piece of cake.


What about security?

We can add locks to the windows and doors for you, plus they will be double-glazed, making the building more secure.
For an additional cost, we could install security lights, which switch on automatically when somebody walks past the building.


What about muddy boots in the winter?

We can build a pathway leading to the garden building for an additional cost. Therefore, you could be walking on stone or concrete, making it less likely that you walk muddy boots into the log cabin.


Do you offer summerhouse finance?

Currently, we do not offer finance, yet we offer some of the most affordable prices to build a garden room.
Our house located in Bath, England, hasn’t got rear access to the garden.


Are you still able to build a garden room for us?

Yes, because our garden buildings are 100% bespoke, the building materials are not constructed using flat pack construction methods.
Instead, individual pieces of wood can be carried through the house or a side access leading to your garden.

We can, therefore, build a garden room in most gardens within the city of Bath.

We understand that within the city of Bath, in South West England, there is many Victorian houses, and therefore, sometimes there isn’t rear access available to the garden for us to carry building materials into the garden, because it might be long row of terraced housing, and therefore there might not be side access neither.

Therefore, what we can do instead is walk the building materials through the house and then start work straight away on building a garden room for you


A range of different insulation options for you to select

Some companies may only offer you one type of insulation- for example fibreglass insulation.
That’s because some garden buildings might get mass-produced within say a warehouse, therefore they may only come with one type of insulation.

Our garden buildings are different from flat-pack summerhouses- our buildings are instead bespoke, so the customer can specify which insulation options that they want.

If you’d like a more eco-friendlier option, then why not select sheep wool? If you would like a different kind of insulation that is really good at keeping heat within the building, then why not opt for thick panel insulation? This can do a fantastic job of retaining heat.


Underfloor heating
Many people like underfloor heating in their homes, for example, they may want this within the bathroom or within the kitchen. This makes walking on the floor, during the winter much more comfortable during a freezing cold morning.
But you might be spending considerable time working within your garden office during the winter months; therefore, you might also want the garden room floor to have underfloor heating. Thus, the floor could radiate heat throughout the building while you’re working.

Do you run your business- could you benefit from purchasing a garden office from us?




You might run a freelance business, for example, you might be a web designer? You might be looking at renting an office? Yet, then thought, well, what about getting a garden office built?

Such a building is simply great for remote working or just having a place to run your business and meet your clients.

Being comfortable

For some of us, we spend most of our waking hours in work. So, this is why its crucial, that your comfortable. That you have a room that you enjoy spending your time, it may have artwork on the wall, a large window to let in all that fresh air and natural light.

What’s great about purchasing a garden office from us, is you can design it to your exact requirements.

So, floor to ceiling windows, no problem, large bathroom and kitchen- you got it, we can build the whole building the way you like. If you have an active lifestyle, why not have a separate room, and place some gym equipment in there, that offer a great place to have a quick run after work.


Any shape or size you like

Our British gardens, well they come in all sizes, from back gardens not large enough to swing a cat- through to gardens so large, well, you could get lost in the amount of woodland you may have.

So, what’s great about hiring our team to help design and build your garden office, is every part of the building is bespoke. Its 100% designed the way you like, so if you have enough room, and you gain planning permission, why not have a truly large garden office? It could also be used for multiple purposes, such as a gym / office?


We can build internal walls to create meeting room / office

So, let’s say you’re a freelance web designer for example, you might want one room to use as your room to complete work.
Yet another separate room where you meet your clients, with a large meeting table, perhaps a white board, so you can note down some ideas?


Why rent expensive office space?

Even an office, that’s the dimensions of the internal space of a broom cupboard, in some cities can cost an arm and a


Toilet and kitchen area


If your going be working in your garden office, then you might want us to install a bathroom.

Some customers have a complete bathroom suite, including shower, toilet and wash hand basin.

Yet, if you haven’t got that much room to spare, there are some really innovative spaces saving solutions. For example, there are toilets, which have fitted into the top, a wash hand basin, helping you to save so much space.

Alternatively, a lot of our garden rooms, are often used for more than one purpose. For example, someone running their own business, might be using the majority of the building as an air-conditioned garden office.

Yet, some of the room, might be used as a gym, therefore, you might after a workout want a nice refreshing shower, and we can install a shower for you.

We hope article has helped explain some of the benefits of owning one of our garden offices.


Quality for less

We build superb quality, long lasting, durable garden offices, yet our customers are always pleasantly surprised with our prices. We can build a garden office for just 18k, so if you would like, to get a quality building built by us, why not call us?


Bath and beyond

We are a well-known garden room company in Bath, yet, our team, which consists now of over 10 installers, travel up and down the country building everything from luxury gin bars, through to yoga rooms.

Garden rooms are now massively popular in the U.K, and we have a very strong reputation, for building quality garden rooms, at competitive prices. Why not get on the phone today and give us a ring?



Have your garden office built the way you like


Here at Kingsley Build, we have now been designing and building garden offices for over 10 years. As these buildings are places where our customers spend a huge amount of time, its so important that the buildings are carefully designed, so that they are comfortable, well designed and built rooms.




For some people, they may spend easily 50+ busy working in their garden office. So, means one thing, the room needs to be comfortable, but more than that, it’s an opportunity to design and build a building around you, you have quality speakers embed the ceiling, so when you want to blast 10 minutes of classical music, why not?

Why not have a space dedicated for massaging chair, so when work gets tiring, a little wearing, you could jump in the massaging chair and just have 10 minutes of the back being massaged by the chair.

Or, why not just have a nice kitchen area, with an area you can make nice refreshing espresso?

The building can therefore be designed around you.





Switch off when the doors are closed

The lines are somewhat now blurred- with home working? And what do we mean by that?

Well, it’s all too easy to keep working longer, and longer, and longer hours. To keep walking back and answering e-mails at 8pm, just because the laptop is there, and when you walk past on the kitchen table, you see instantly that your boss, or client has e-mailed you.

So, then you think, I will quickly e-mail back- then that message turns into 7 more messages that evening- sound familiar?

Yes, so its important to divide work from your personal life.


And how do you do this?

Well, that’s simple, with a well-designed garden office.

You can have a huge garden office, with a pathway leading to it, and when the working day is done and dusted, you just have to lock the room up and walk back to the house.

The garden office will be locked up for the evening, lights switched off, and the room closed until 9 am the next day.
So, this helps you to divide your work life, from your personal life.



Thinking of moving home in the next few years?

So, what might be thinking is, we need a garden office built, but we plan on staying at the house for only 3 years or less, so you, think, do we really want to pay say 30k on having a garden office built?

And this is true, yet, you also have to think, well, you are enhancing your house as well, when someone views your house to buy it, they may want to buy it, because they like the garden room as well.

We always say this, say there’s 3 very similar properties for sale on the street, they very similar houses. Yet your house, its different because you’ve hired Kingsley Build to build a garden office for you.

If that person or couple, who are buying your house, also work from home, they may well be more inclined to buy your house, rather than the other houses on the street, because yours, has a well-built, garden office.



A room with a view

Who’s worked in a large office block, stuck under artificial light, with stuffy, stale air?
It’s not nice.

So, a garden room, can be made so its completely different, an oasis in your garden, a place to work, yes, but you could fresh air flowing in, a huge window that you open to let breeze blow across your face.

Fresh air, and the smell of freshly cut lawn in the summer, flowing through the bi-folding doors.
The walls, painted a nice colour green, or even having some art work, to further enhance the space.

Then some really high-quality speakers, which sound fantastic, like Bose speakers, so when you want to blast some music, and have a break, with a cup of earl grey tea, why not?



Wall art- make it your space

Why not put up some painting, or your favourite movie actors- it could be the fantastic, Alan Ford who played Brick Top in Snatch- he played that role fantastically we think.


Or maybe you Brad Pitt?

Or maybe AC/DC is your favourite ban of all time, make the room yours, add a lot of wall art, and personalise the space.

Renting meeting space can be expensive

If you have a meeting with a client, then renting meeting space can be rather expensive.

So why not have a room, within the garden office, that’s used for meetings?

A room, with small table, a water fountain, and a white board.

This way you haven’t got to drive to a place to have a meeting, with your clients, they can come to you, and you have the meeting within your garden office.


Do you build large garden offices?



Sometimes, a customer, will be running a business, perhaps with their partner, or an employee. They don’t want to rent expensive office space in the middle of Bath city centre, so instead they may hire us, to build an extra-large office for them, complete with bathroom.
What’s great about hiring Kingsley Build, is we can build a garden office to the dimensions, and the shape that you like. So, for example, you may want a very large wooden building, split in two, so that two people can comfortably work, each room might have its own toilet, and there’s a shared kitchen area to the side.

We can build a garden office, to any size you like.


Would you like a free quote

Kingsley or Seb, can meet you anytime that’s convenient for you, they can come and meet you, and we can sometimes offer you a quote on the day we meet. Sometimes if the garden office, is larger, and need a kitchen, a bathroom, decking, sometimes, we need to go back to the office, and calculate some costs, and often we can get back to you with a quote, to build a garden office in Bath, and often we can provide a quote, in less than 48 hours from meeting you.




Are garden offices worth the expense?




You might be an entrepreneur or an employee that’s now working 40+ hours a week from home. And you’re mulling over a question you have been thinking about for some time-that is a garden office worth the expense?

Now, we have to be honest, we are rather biased here, as the majority of the buildings we build, are garden offices.

However, with that said, there are some major benefits from having a garden office built, such as:


Peace and quite

Let’s, say that your boss sends one of those demanding e-mails, for example, “I need that report on costs, sent to me by the end of the week”- and getting work done at short notice, well, that can be majorly stressful.

What can make it even more stressful, is having to work in a noisy house, with people asking you “what’s for dinner” and “what did you think of last nights episode of Strictly Come Dancing”- all while you have a look across your face, which say, leave me alone, I have to get this work done.

So, a garden building offers a place of calm, peace and quiet, where you can walk down, with your espresso in hand, and start work in a building that’s nice and quiet.


Easier to keep to the 9 to 5 hours?

I will just put the washing in the washing machine, I will just clean the kitchen, I will just answer the front door to the double-glazing sales person- well this all takes time.

Add up of this time, and what happens? Well, you might fall behind on your work, and you might work, later and later into evening, eating into your social time, and time where you just might want to unwind while watching Netflix.

So, by keeping your nose to grinding wheel (that’s a figure of speech) you can get your done quicker. And what would allow you to be more productive?

Well, having a garden office, that has a toilet, wash hand basin, a kitchen, so you don’t have to leave that room, you have everything you need, which may help you to focus on getting your done.

Then when work is done, you can return back to house. Yet because you have completed your work in a garden office, away from the distractions of house work, and other distractions, you might find that you have got more work completed when working in your garden office.


We have built so many well made brilliant Bath garden rooms

The fantastic and amazing city of Bath, is an area in U.K where we think garden buildings are in very strong demand. The reason being, people often love their current house, yet they can’t extend it anymore, and they don’t want to move. Yet, they often have ample space in the garden, where a garden building can be built, so it offers a place to work, watch the TV or simply do a puzzle in the afternoon.

So rather calling a local estate agent, and having to go through the hassle of moving house, why not have a huge garden room built, with bathroom, a kitchen a huge area, you could use as living space, rather having to move house in Bath, England.

And often in Bath also, there are many business owners / entrepreneurs in the city of Bath, these people might want to rent expensive office space.

They may want the convenance of just walking to the end of their garden to use their garden office.

Plus, a garden office can be bought, then you don’t have to worry about paying expensive rent to a landlord to rent an office premises.


More comfortable

So, you might currently be working on the kitchen table, using the same seating you use to have your dinner.

Now the kitchen table, might be great eating from, but ideal for sitting for huge length of time, working on say completing that Excel spreadsheet.

Instead, you will want a comfortable office chair, a good quality desk, so a garden office allows you to have a place that more comfortable to work in.


Regulate the temperate how you like

You might like to room to cooler, or warmer, yet changing the temperature the house, might take quite while before it reaches a temperature that you like and that your find nice and comfortable to work in.

Yet with a garden office, its often a smaller room, that can be crammed with insulation, simply meaning that its easier to warm, its easier to cool. However, with that said, this doesn’t apply to all garden rooms, as some are simply absolutely low quality, and have drafts, no insulation at all, and floor might be freezing.

So, you need the room to be insulated, quality heaters installed.

Also, you will need quality air conditioning system.

And don’t forget will need energy saving glass, quality doors, windows, and just a good quality build, to make sure no really strong blasts of air are not coming to the room.


More than one use

Life shouldn’t just be about working, and this means your garden room hasn’t got to just be a place of work.

You could have your desk and shelves in one corner, yet the rest of the room could be full of gym equipment.

So, when the working day is over, and you want to starting working on improving your fitness, well, you haven’t got to get stuck in a lot of traffic, and listening to beeping horns, with people road rage at say 5:30, instead, you could finish work, and just jump on the treadmill and running.

That’s what’s great about having a super large garden room built, you can use it for many different purposes.

You could even have a sperate room built, that’s just got a nice reclining chair, huge TV, a nice chiller cabinet, so you can watch live sports, crack open a refreshing can of beer or perhaps just fizzy pop and watch the football.


A great place to work

A lot of people, perhaps even hundreds of thousands of people, have switched to working from home full time. After covid meant that businesses had to change how their employees work, that couldn’t work in huge offices, because of the spread of covid, more people worked from home.

And now because so many businesses have seen that their employees can work from home, and be productive, many companies now want their staff to work from home either part time or full time.

So, you want a building which can you can work within, that’s well insulated, that’s quiet, that looks brilliant in your garden. Then why not get a garden room built by us?


Do you build composite garden buildings?


So, when you’re shopping on Google to buy a new log cabin or perhaps a summerhouse, you will often see many companies, which focus on building these buildings out of composite rather than wood.


And this might you thinking, well what are the benefits of composite?

Well, we think composite has so many advantages, when compared to wood, there’s environmental reasons, as some composite is made from recycled plastics. There is also the benefit of saving time, because on a nice warm summer’s day, most homeowners, don’t want to spend most of the weekend, rubbing oil into the wood, or painting it, to protect the wood for another year.

This is one of the main advantages of composite, is that it doesn’t ever need rubbing oil into the composite or painting it. Where with most wood, because the wood is a natural product, if the wood grain is not sealed, then what can happen is that the wood can start to rot, so what is needed is regular maintenance.

However, with composite its simply brilliant product, because it save you so much time, because you never ever need to paint it.


How much does a composite garden room cost?

Our prices start from £20k for garden office pod, the cost will vary, this depends on the size of the building and also, which optional extras you might like. There so many extras to pick from, from high quality speakers embedded into the roof, through to adding air conditioning.
What are benefits of picking composite summerhouse?

So, its true, for us to build a summerhouse, to 100% clad the outside with thermowood, well this would be a cheap option, than opting for composite exterior cladding.


So, why should a homeowner, fork out extra money, on composite cladding?

Well, we think, paying that little for composite, makes sense for so many reasons, mainly time, because, you will want to be using your summerhouse, as place of work, or let’s say to exercise within the building. You’re not going to want, say spend a lot of time, painting the wood or staining it with various wood care products.


So the main benefit of composite is that it doesn’t need painting.

Yet, some really top quality brands, they make exterior composite cladding, with each piece of cladding actually has a wood grain effect. So the composite cladding can actually look like real timber, yet you have the massive benefit, that the composite wont incur wood worm, and doesn’t rot like timber. Because here in Great Britain we have so much rain, and its cold for a lot of the year, this makes our climate more susceptible for wood rot to start to set into the timber.

Yet with composite, you cant incur wood worm, because the product is not made from timber.


Is composite guaranteed to last?

Yes, there are now many manufacturers of composite garden rooms, but also, different brands of composite.
We would recommend, paying for a top quality brand, because some cheap composite, well we have seen it buckle, that is change shape, when exposed to very strong sun light.

So you want a quality brand, that’s both for the exterior cladding but also for the decking as well.


Why choose composite rather natural wood?

A lot of our customers will still opt for natural wood, exterior cladding, such as red cedar wood, even though this type of exterior cladding does require some maintenance.

Yet, if you want a type of exterior cladding, that you don’t have to maintain, because perhaps for example, you are elderly and don’t want to be painting, or adding oil to the outside of the summerhouse, then we would recommend two options, that is powder coated steel sheets, or to opt for composite cladding. Our garden room company offers both options, and when we meet you, we can tell you about the different colour options we can offer.


Can the room be air-conditioned?

Yes, whether we are building a garden bar, a home gym, or perhaps we are building a garden office, we can a air conditioning unit for you. So even on the warmest, hottest of summer days, you can be nice and cool within the garden building.


How many different colour options can you offer for cladding?

We can offer many different colour options, when you choose composite cladding. Some of the options have been manufactured so that the cladding looks more like natural wood, however, some homeowners, don’t want the cladding to look like timber, they want a modern looking building, so a very popular colour is charcoal, or a light grey, used combination with dark grey aluminium bi-folding doors and windows. This makes a very durable, low maintenance, and a high quality building.


What foundations do you use?

We can offer two main options, to help save you money, we would recommend opting for ground screws. Yet with that said, within some gardens in the city of Bath, the ground might be boggy, and doesn’t drain well, therefore, you might need instead a thick concrete slab.
If you need a concrete slab, this is a more expensive option. So if you can, we would recommend using ground screws, as these are much cheaper, our builders can install them quickly and will help to save money, because they are much cheaper than opting for concrete.


Can you also build composite decking?

Most certainly we can build composite decking. We can build a huge decked area, truly masisve, so you could have party with yoru friends, on the decking.

Also you might be using your composite log cabin as a place to work, so when want a break, and enjoy some of the sunshine, you could sit out on your composite decking, and have an espresso coffee?


Does composite cladding require painting?

The decking and the exterior cladding, if made from composite, doesn’t need painting, staining and you don’t need to apply wood oil to it at all, so it does require any maintenance. However, what we would say, is some composite cladding lasts longer than others, so if you do opt for composite do pick a quality brand, which is guaranteed to last.

What we would recommend considering when purchasing a garden office




Purchasing a garden office, well, it’s most certainly a substantial purchase for most homeowners.

You’re undoubtedly going to want to use the building for many consecutive years to come, as a place perhaps just to do your yoga routine, or perhaps you will be working in their 6 days a week?

 Therefore, it is absolutely imperative, that the building is well built, in a nutshell it needs to be made to last. So the company will need employ highly experienced staff, and is constructed using building materials which ensures the longevity of the whole building- so for example, good quality bi-folds need to be used.

We have written this article to provide you with some food for thought, as to some of the things that you need to think about when purchasing a garden office in the city of Bath.


Planning permission and conservation areas

There are some areas, for example an area of outstanding natural beauty with in North Somerset, where some properties might have various terms and conditions in terms of whether you can build a garden building within that conservation area or not.

Therefore, planning permission might be needed from Bath County Council, before the builders can even start to pour the concrete for the slab, or sometimes it’s not possible to build a garden room in some areas at all, if it’s a conversation area, that does not allow garden rooms to be built in a certain area.

So, we would recommend firstly contacting your local council, whether that be Bath County Council, or your local council, to see whether there are terms and conditions in terms of gaining planning, to say whether you are allowed to build a garden building within your garden or not.


Most garden rooms we build are built under “Permitted Development” Planning Law’s- however its still important to check

For the vast majority of garden buildings which our team of builders constructs, whether that be a garden bar or perhaps a huge air conditioned garden office, often the building can be constructed under what is called “permitted development”. What this simply means is that sometimes, but not always planning permission is not needed for a lot of our customers. So if you are simply unsure whether you need to gain planning permission or not, talk to one of our friendly and super  helpful sales staff, and they will be able to tell you.



Have a good understanding of the insulation that the construction company will use

It’s entirely possible, for a garden room company to simply specify that the building is indeed “insulated”. But well insulated is the room, is the really important question


There’s insulation then there’s insulation

However, enquiries do need to be made to the construction company, as to how good the quality insulation actually is, if it’s nothing more than just say a cheap layer of thin aluminium foil, which is backed on to say the back of the plasterboard, while this is no good at all at keeping the really cold air out during the winter. In matter of fact, if the insulation is low quality, then your going to have jack-frost nipping at your toes, when your trying to work.

It’s not going to provide enough insulation to keep the room nice and warm during the winter.

You are going to need much thicker, and more insulation if you want to use that building during the winter months.





Make sure that you pick the right type of roof- we would recommend paying that bit more a rubber roof

Some companies might fit a roof which is more suitable to be fitted to a low-cost garden shed, than it would be for a garden building.

This is no good as the building will not last that long at all, water is likely to ingress into roofing board, plus the sidewalls might start to incur water staining on the plasterboarding, within the building within a short period of time.

We would recommend a rubber roof- installed by a roofing company

What you want therefore recommend a better-quality roof is used, and what you really need is a roof that comes with a guarante, this is so that you have total peace of mind the roof is guaranteed to last on the building.




Consider daylight

So what you don’t want is for a garden building to be placed say under the shade of a large tree, and not much natural light to be coming into the building during the day.

So what you should consider is how the daylight will illuminate the building, and if it’s quite a shady area with why not consider also having roof lights fitted as well?


Consider a pathway

Some companies do not build a pathway or some kind of concrete walkway to the building, but for an extra cost we can actually build this for you also.

The reason we say this is because sometimes a customer who has never had a garden roof before quickly discovers that in the winter it incredibly difficult to keep muddy shoes and mud out of the building.

However, with a concrete path or another type example resin or perhaps just made of flagstones, you have walkway straight of the garden building help you to keep floor cleaner for longer within the building.


Think about energy efficiency

There are companies such as ours which will give you a cost not just build a garden building, but also to include a large battery, complete with solar panels, the batteries need the power the garden room, or you could actually feed power into the grid.

We can therefore build a garden building has solar panels fitted to the roof.

Garden Music Studio


Garden Music Studio’s

Date: 30/10/2023

Author: Kingsley Hyden Jones




Bespoke garden music rooms

We build bespoke garden music rooms all over the United Kingdom

Bespoke soundproof garden music rooms and garden sound studios. Made to specification, insulated for temperature and sound.
So, most garden rooms are designed just to stop heat escaping, through adding various types of insulation into the walls. However, a garden music room, well this needs to be built differently, if you want to stop a lot of noise escaping and annoying your neighbours!


Garden Music Rooms & Soundproof Studios


We can build soundproofed garden studios

For many, making music is an essential part of life, whether as a career or a much-loved hobby. However, finding a space to practice or play can be a challenge – especially if you live in a crowded neighbourhood. Fortunately, garden music rooms provide the perfect solution. These fully insulated and sound-proofed garden studios offer a peaceful haven where you can make all the noise you want without disturbing your neighbours. Whether you’re a seasoned musician or just starting out, an acoustically treated garden music room is the perfect place to let your creativity flow.

So, here in the wonderful island we call Great Britain, a lot of us, have relatively small gardens. Yet, we may well be a music producer, or lets say someone who likes to play the piano each evening after work. So whats needed is a sound insulated garden room, yet, it must also be insulated, otherwise, well its going be mighty freezing in that room otherwise.


Sound is an amazing thing. It can be soft and soothing, or loud and jarring. And it can travel through the air, transferring vibrations to the objects it comes into contact with – including walls, floors and ceilings. Therefore, dedicated garden music rooms and sound studios are a popular solution as they contain the sound and minimise these vibrations from travelling.
So how do we minimise sound from escaping?

Well, there are a large number of companies that provide sound proofing materials. The cost of these vary a lot, depending on quality, yet, there are some top quality makes out there, that simply do an amazing job of helping to prevent sound from escaping, yet also, don’t take up much roof, when added to the walls.

Soundproof Garden Studios


We can sound proof your garden studio

At Modern Garden Rooms, we are experts at soundproofing garden buildings. We use high-quality materials and modern construction techniques to ensure that your garden music studio is fully soundproofed, so you can be confident that the sound will stay within your garden walls.

So, screws, nails, so all fixings, if you use this to place the plasterboard in place, then you nail this to the structural timbers, the structural timbers then are adjoined to the outside cladding. So, if the garden room is not built in a way that is designed to keep noise in, then basically the room just becomes a giant drum.

So far from preventing noise from escaping, the walls, can send sound waves flowing through your garden, your neighbours garden, and your neighbours, neighbours garden. And sure you may well be enjoying listening to that latest drum and base track you have just finished recording using Cubase, but your neighbours, well they may well be less enthusiastic about listening to it!

So the the solution is not just in adding sound proofing, but also designing the whole buildings to minimise sound escaping, so the walls will need more insulation, built in a different way, and we would recommend paying a bit more for, triple glazed doors and windows.


Needs to be well built

What’s for sure is there’s no point in ordering a top of the range sound insulation board, then for the carpenters to leave large gaps, around the windows and doors, allowing sound to escape, so the whole building needs to be well built.
Noise tests
So, the only way of knowing how good the building is, is to carry out a noise test, of playing music, and using a decibel reader outside the building, to record how loud the noise is. Its perfectly possible, that during construction, more sound proofing is required, to bring the noise down to an acceptable level. Therefore, the building does need to be carefully designed, yet, more sound proofing may be needed, if the decibel readings are still too high.


Ways we create Soundproof Garden Studios

• We can install triple glazed windows and doors
• We can offer you a range of different sound proofing options
• Thicker wall insulation can be used

What features would you say are essential when purchasing a garden office?


You may have made the decision that you would like a brand-new garden office built, yet when you start to shop around the various companies that offer to build these freestanding buildings, you notice that the prices often vary considerably.

For instance, the quotes that you start to receive within your inbox, they might vary between £10,000 and perhaps up to £40,000.

This might have you rather confused initially as to how the prices of such a building can vary by so much.
However, the construction of the garden room can often vary between which company you choose. One company might us just ground screws when building a garden office, another company may just use just concrete slab.

Therefore, we thought it would be a really good idea to write a very helpful article, explaining some of the features that your garden building should include.




When the rain and sleet and hail are lashing down on your house, often a house will be well equipped to cope with this amount of harsh weather conditions. For example, there might be a concrete render on the building, really good quality Victorian bricks helping to keep that rainwater out.

However, when we start to visualise the construction of a garden office, the majority of the building is made from timber, so it’s important that here in United Kingdom you think about how that building is able to cope with out wet, cold and some might argue rather long British winters.

First things first, what we would recommend is that you have a high-quality, long lasting rubber roof fitted, this should come also with a long guarantee period.

Secondly, we would recommend picking a type of cladding, that’s a low or offers close to zero maintenance required.
If you were to ask to recommend two types of cladding, we would recommend steel sheet and composite cladding, both are low maintenance.



We would recommend making sure the roof is guaranteed to last

This is something that some homeowners might overlook when they are purchasing a garden room, because the roof is sometimes something that the buyers don’t think too much about. Yet the quality of the roof is so crucial, to ensuring the longevity of the garden office.

If you are going be working in the garden room in the summer, we would recommend air conditioning is fitted
So your brand ne garden building might be built during the autumn or the winter period- where you are more concentrating on how you will keep the room warm.

However, it is equally important to think about how comfortable you will be in building during the summer months as well.
This is because the roof is often made of a flat roof, a rubber material which can attract the sunlight and because the front elevation of a summerhouse is often made mostly of glass, the building can heat up quite substantially during the summer period.

So what we would recommend an air conditioning system fitted, now this might sound rather expensive at first but we offer you a range of different air conditioning systems made by different manufacturers.



How are you going heat the room during the winter?

Sometimes, some companies will actually install the electrics and also a really good quality electric heater.
Yet what you have to think about is will the electric heater be sufficient for heating the whole garden building, or might the small heater not be enough to heat the room,

What we will do when we come out and visit you is have a chat about the different types of insulation that we can offer.
We can offer sheep’s wool insulation, hemp insulation and also panel insulation as well.

Then we will recommend how many electric heaters that you need, if it’s a large garden room you might need three for example.


Is the glass used for the windows and doors energy-efficient?

This is another important factor to consider when buying a garden office, will all the windows be good-quality and double glazed, as otherwise a lot of heat might simply escape through poorly constructed doors and windows.



What a guarantee on the bi folding doors?

In our view there are bi-folding doors, then there are bi folding doors, what do we mean by that statement?
Well quite simply put, there are some bi folding doors which are simply great at keeping the heat within a garden building, and with relatively little effort the doors should open and close easily as well.

Also they should have good security features, such as excellent quality locks.

What’s the guarantee on the whole building?

It’s important to ask your garden room company how long do they offer a guarantee on the whole building for?



What maintenance will the cladding on your garden room require?

This is another really important point to consider when buying a garden office, is to have a conversation with your garden room company about the different pros and cons of the cladding options that the company offers.

They may want to offer you a cheap type of cladding made of softwood, but after a short period of time, let’s say after just one year, the garden room might start to look a bit tatty if the wood becomes water stained, and need the all cladding taken off if the cladding suffers from wood worm as well.

So we would recommend choosing composite cladding, sure it’s not be the cheapest cladding option to choose from, but when you think over the long term, composite requires hardly any maintenance at all, so we think its definitely worth the extra expense.

How your company built many garden offices/garden rooms within Somerset?



Somerset is a location within the UK full of entrepreneurs, as well as many homeowners who now work from home. Some may work from home on a “hybrid” basis, some other employees may work from their house on a full-time basis. This means over that the last three years; our garden room business, has seen a huge increase in demand for our company to build garden offices.

With prices starting from as little as £18,000, it’s clear to see why we are so popular right across South-West England.



Why choose our company?

Yet, when you start to shop around, you may notice that there are literally hundreds of businesses offering to build these buildings. So, from a customer’s perspective, it can sometimes be rather confusing, as to which company you should choose.

Some garden room companies may advertise on a noticeboard within a local shop, some may well be landscaping businesses which build the occasional garden office. Then There’s us, where you may have seen our many Mercedes sprinter vans, and our online marketing campaigns or alternatively you might have even seen as working in your street?


We have already built, many garden offices across Somerset. Here’s some of the reasons why:


• We offer a long guarantee period
• We use top quality timber
• We employ highly experienced electricians

Perhaps for example you started working for a large plc business, yet they now want you to work from home three days a week. Where before you might have worked in a large city, such as Bristol, yet now you’re working from home more often, you may want us to build a garden office as fast as we can for you.

Therefore, the homeowner, will want a garden office built by us as quick as possible. The great news is, that we are often able to build a garden building, in less than three weeks. This is incredibly fast, when you consider that we need to often use a JCB mini digger to level the ground. We need to build the foundations, we need to complete all of the structural work, then we need to add the cladding, plaster the building inside and also at the electrics.

You haven’t got to hire a electrician, because we can do this work for you

Even if your garden building, is right at the far end of your garden, we can still install all of the electrics for you. Our fully qualified and highly experienced electricians, can install the power sockets, the outdoor and indoor lights, as well as also the fuse box for you. This means, you haven’t got to call around various electricians, to obtain a quote, because within our quote we can take care of installing all of the electrics for you.



Do you build garden buildings all across Bath and Somerset?

We have been building garden offices right across the whole of Bath and Somerset for a long period of time. Our company director, has been building wooden buildings now for over 8 consecutive years. We can therefore offer a wide range of different garden buildings, for example we can build eco-friendly buildings with a sedum roof, which cladding made from recycled plastics.

We can also build very large garden gyms, complete with a canopy, to offer a roof over a hot tub. We can also build a large room, that air conditioned there can be used as the gym area, we can also build a large bathroom so when you are finished exercising, say on the rowing machine, you might want to have a quick shower within your garden gym?



How much does a garden office cost to build?

Our prices, for our garden buildings, start from just £18,000. The average prices between 25,000 and £30,000.


Guaranteed to last

We believe that one of the main reasons why so many residents within Somerset call us to build their building, is because we offer such a long guarantee period on all our wooden buildings. Therefore our customers have total peace of mind, that they have purchased a very high quality building, made to last, and because it’s so well built, we can offer you a long guarantee.

When you purchase a wooden building online, from a difference company it might come with a short guarantee period.

Yet, often homeowners want to use a garden office, often they want to use it for a number of years, they don’t want to have to fix any problems such as a leaking roof after say three years of use. This is why many homeowners contact us, because the building comes with a long guarantee. Plus, we install top quality building materials, for example we install rubber roof’s, that we know will last a very long period of time.

Therefore, once you purchase a timber building from us, you will have the peace of mind that you have purchased a quality building that’s made to last. That’s why so many people in Somerset, call Kingsley, because our company has a very strong reputation building garden buildings that are built to last.

Do you build Bespoke garden buildings?

In Somerset, many homeowners, have fantastic views over the surrounding countryside.
For example you might a rural property, that have say large garden, and you might want a garden building constructed, so that you can work well looking out over the surrounding countryside. You might be able to see acre after acre of British countryside, alternatively you might live near Woodland, or let’s say a stream, therefore we can build a garden building, within your garden, so that you can look out over the countryside while working.

Built to any size that you would like, from 3 m x 3 m to 7 m x 7 m plus

Sometimes, in Somerset’s and the surrounding areas such as the Cotswolds, often to people will work within a garden building for let’s say easily 40 hours plus per week. For example, it might be a start-up business, that is run by a husband and wife, and you may want want a comfortable place where they can run their business from. We can therefore build a well insulated, air-conditioned, spacious garden building that would be absolutely brilliant to run your business from.
Are we still able to use your garden buildings during a freezing cold winter?

It’s all well and good browsing through various summerhouses for sale online, some might be well below £10,000 to purchase.

However, these buildings might well be as much to use as a chocolate teapot within the winter months, if they can’t be easily kept warm, and sometimes these buildings can be freezing cold inside, simply due to a lack of insulation.

Sometimes the owners might have multiple electric fan heaters on, trying to heat the room to a comfortable level, yet because there’s no insulation all of this warmth might simply escape through the roof in a matter of seconds. Not only is this bad for the environment, the electric bill is likely to be considerable when trying to heat a summerhouse that has no insulation.

Therefore quality insulation needs to be installed into the roof, walls and floor

So it’s most definitely worth paying more for a well-insulated garden building, and you will see our builders diligently cutting the panel insulation and placing it into every part of the building. This will mean that the building is fully insulated.
Panel insulation therefore simply does an excellent job at helping to keep the building nice and warm within the winter. Still need to have electric heaters, yet they hot air can be retained for longer because they will be panel insulation within the building.

And because our buildings have panel installation crammed into the walls, they can be warmed very easily through electric heaters.


Do you offer finance?

Currently at the time of writing, we do not offer garden room finance, however, our prices are often cheaper than some of our main competitors. For example, prices start from £18,000, so our garden rooms are offered at a brilliant price.

We can build a garden building to any dimensions that you would like?

Do you offer to supply flatpack garden buildings and to deliver them to Bath, England?

There are now many companies, which supply what is called flatpack garden buildings. This is a bit like IKEA furniture in that is delivered in a flatpack form, with a set of instructions, that you can easily follow and build the building yourself.

However, currently at the time of writing, we don’t supply flatpack garden buildings. Instead, we offer a service, where we build spoke garden rooms. You state to the exact centimetre, how large you want the garden room to be in terms of the width and also the length the building

We want a garden building constructed , yet why should we pick your company?

Well, this is a really good question, and that’s because you as the customer are spoilt for choice when it comes to picking a garden room company.

There are now so many garden room companies to pick from in Bath. In matter-of-fact, in the South-West of England, there are now hundreds of garden room companies, so why exactly should you pick us over all of these competitors?

One reason is, a lot of our customers often pop along to a garden room which we are currently constructing in Bath. And as soon as they see the quality of our workmanship, the quality of the wood that we use, and sometimes they have a quick chat with our customers, and they say how polite how hard-working and how happy they are with their garden room, then we are often the company that that person chooses because they can see that we have built so many garden buildings right across South-West England.

We have built garden rooms in gardens within Exeter, right through to Bath, and often we are cheaper than a lot of other companies.

How much extra will it cost to add a quality kitchen and bathroom to our garden office?


Date: 29th of September 2023

Let’s say you would like a garden office built in Bath, South West England. You might be working within your garden office for the vast majority of the week- lets say, in excess of 50+ week for some people. Therefore, for a lot of owners of garden offices, it’s sometimes inconvenient, to keep popping back to the house to make a refreshing cup of tea or to use the toilet.



Therefore, when you want a quick toilet break, often you don’t want to be opening the bi-folding doors, and running through the garden to access the toilet in your house.

Therefore, a lot of people want a quality kitchen and a quality bathroom installed within their garden office. So, we thought we would write a rather handy guide, explaining how we can add a bathroom, as well as a kitchen, and how this improves your garden office.


Small bathroom

So, you might have a relatively small garden because you may live within central Bath, let’s say in a large Victorian house, yet your garden might be quite small? So, you might be restricted in terms of how large the garden building can be. You might even think it’s not feasible to add a bathroom into your garden office?

However, a lot of the time, we are able to put a small bathroom within most garden offices that we construct. For example, our highly experienced plumbers are often able to install a small compact toilet, with a small wash hand basin within most garden offices we build.

There are some garden room companies, which don’t install the plumbing all the electrics.

However here at Kingsley Build, we can take care of all of this for you.

So, if you would like a small bathroom, that is just a toilet and a wash hand basin, then we can install this for you within a small bathroom for you.


We can also install a large bathroom- with a shower, toilet and wash hand basin

A lot of our customers in Bath, within England, don’t just use their garden building as a place to work say 9 to 5 every weekday. Sometimes part of the room also has a lot of gym equipment in, so during the week, the owners might spend a huge amount of time either working and perhaps exercising within their garden building in the evenings.

Therefore, you might want a large bathroom installed, with a large shower, that is a large shower tray and enclosure and a powerful power shower?

You might also want a wash hand basin, a toilet, an electric hand dryer and a large enough space for you to store an ample amount of towels and also cosmetics and skincare items within the bathroom.

You might therefore want a large bathroom, so what we would often suggest is having a large garden office or garden building constructed. And also think about whether you would like the building to be an L shape, as this might allow you to have more internal room to fit that large bathroom into.


You must also consider mould, mildew and condensation

Garden buildings, are mostly constructed of wood, as well as plasterboard, and these two building materials are great and perfectly suited for use when constructing a garden building.

However, you do have to think about ventilation as well, so if you’re going to have a kitchen installed or you are going to have a bathroom installed, or possibly you would like both installed within your garden room? You do make sure that the garden room doesn’t become damp, due to poor ventilation.

It won’t take long for black spores, mould and mildew to build up on the plasterboard, if the garden room company hasn’t installed an ample amount of electric extractor fans.

Our electricians will carefully install extractor fans into the walls, into the kitchen and into the bathroom to make sure that moisture is taken away from these two rooms.


We can dig all the trenches

Now, the reason why it costs more for us to install a bathroom or a kitchen into a garden building is because we need to bring into the garden a JCB mini excavator, we need to dig the trench for the waste pipes, and when we’ve dug the trenches, we will then need to take away the excess soil and we need to lay the water pipes as well.

This is quite a lot of work and this is why it costs more for us to install a kitchen or a bathroom.



We can install a good quality kitchen
When you’re taking a break from work, whether your going to want a refreshing cup of coffee, perhaps a cup of tea or perhaps a nice herbal tea?

You may want a nice kitchen installed, perhaps some nice high-gloss white kitchen cabinets, a good quality fridge freezer made by Samsung and perhaps you even want a dishwasher and an area where you could put your microwave or perhaps your air fryer?

And we can build a luxurious kitchen for you within your garden building.


So, would you like a garden building that has a kitchen and a bathroom installed?

The great thing about picking our company is we have already built so many garden buildings within Somerset, for example within Bath that already have a kitchen and they already have a bathroom installed.

Our builders therefore have a huge amount of experience, building garden buildings that have a kitchen and also have a bathroom within the building.

Plus, we can often build these buildings in less than one month, so we can build them quickly yet they will always be built to a very high standard.

So whether you live in a grand Victorian house in the middle of Bath, or perhaps you live on the outskirts of Bath, England in the countryside in a large farmhouse? We can build a luxurious garden building for you.

Monday through to Saturday, we offer free quotations throughout Bath Somerset, so if you would like a garden building that has a kitchen, and also has a bathroom within the building then why not call us?

Here are some helpful tips for when you are designing your summerhouse in the U.K


So, when we think of a summerhouse, we may purchase the building during the summer months, and our gardens are in full bloom and the bumble-bees are darting between the flowers collecting nectar.

Yet, because our seasons are so different, ranging from our boiling hot days in say July, to our freezing cold winter nights in the middle of December we have to make sure our British summerhouses can withstand this change in our weather. So, we do have to think about how we are going to heat and also cool our summerhouses, to ensure that they are comfortable for use throughout the year.

For example, when we are building a summerhouse we can offer:


  • Air conditioning (we can supply brands such as Samsung Air Conditioning systems)
  • A fully insulated building (we would recommend panel insulation)
  • Electric heaters

As our company has now designed and built hundreds of different wooden summerhouses in Bath, we are in a good position to advise you as to some of the things that you might want to think about when designing and building your brand-new summerhouse.

Insulation is so important


What you don’t want to happen, is to have a building, that’s taking up a large proportion of your garden, and you can’t use it during the winter months, because it’s too cold to use.

In matter-of-fact, if the building is poorly designed and built, you might not even be able to use it during the summer as well, that’s because it could be too warm inside to use and be hot and stuffy inside, and that’s because the correct insulation has not been added to the building.


So, why is that?

Well, picture this scenario if you would, let’s say that it’s a warm summers day in the middle of July and it’s rather roasting hot outside.
You have to pop into your garden shed, to retrieve the garden strimmer, as you want to cut down a few of those annoying weeds around the pathway. Yet when you walk into the garden shed, you notice how hot it is- so hot inside your wooden garden shed, you actually feel that you might faint from the heat.

That’s simply because the sun has been beaming down on the wooden summerhouse, it’s been beaming down on the tar felt roof, and the heat is now trapped within the garden shed causing it to be extremely hot inside that wooden building. This means it makes it hot and stuffy in that room and most definitely not a place that you want to spend much time within the garden shed.

Well, this is exactly how a poorly designed summerhouse can feel, it can feel when you walk in to a poorly designed and built summerhouse, that it’s hot and stuffy inside, then during the winter months, it could be the polar opposite, it could be incredibly difficult to keep warm if it’s poorly insulated.

So, what’s the solution to this problem that some summerhouses incur

The solution is to have the same type of insulation that used in most when constructing most modern housing. That’s the say when a large construction company is building multiple houses, let’s say 100 brand-new homes, often you will see during the construction that they are adding panel insulation to the walls.

Panel insulation, is fantastic quality that’s why we use it in the vast majority of our summerhouses.

You most likely have already seen this type of insulation, it shiny, it’s reflective, it has a foil backing, and then it has a thick centre, and that centre is full of insulating foam.

So, panel insulation helps to keep the warm air within the building for longer during the winter months. During those hot summer days, it can help to reflect the heat and keep it outside, and you also have an air conditioning system running, it can help keep their cool air within the building by reflecting it back into the building and reflecting the warm air out.

So, our number one thing that we would urge you to consider when you’re purchasing a wooden summerhouse, is what type of insulation will the company be supplying?

And we would recommend opting to have very thick panel insulation. Thick panel insulation isn’t cheap, in matter-of-fact you might be surprised by how much it costs per square metre, this is why we would say to you, make sure that your garden room company are installing panel insulation into the walls, and that it’s very thick.

The reason why this is so important is because, its place behind the plasterboard, so you might not actually get to see it. But if that panel insulation is not there, then during the winter is going to be very cold within that building.
Now it’s time to consider the roof for your summerhouse

Some companies supply a roofing felt which is as thin as paper, this is no good, the tar can be easily pierced by say a cat running across the roof.

For example, a cat with particularly sharp claws might scratch the roof or by then just simply walking across it, this could potentially pierce the tar felt to pierce, causing water leaks to occur within the summerhouse.

So, what would we recommend? Rather than using low quality tar felt?

We would recommend having a rubber roof fitted by us.

Underfloor heating

When you think of underfloor heating, you normally think of this type of flooring installed in a luxurious house, for example installed within a luxurious bathroom.

But what you have to consider is that some people will be working within their garden office for 30, 40 potentially 50 hours plus per week.

And when you’re busy working within your garden office, your going to want your feet to be nice and warm, and as the floor heats up can actually start to radiate heat up into the building as well, helping the whole room to be nice and warm.

So do make sure that you obtain a quote for these optional extras, as they can help the room to feel much more comfortable.


Sometimes your summerhouse will be positioned within your garden in such a position where the sunlight will be beaming down on the summerhouse windows and doors, causing the inside of the room to be brightly lit within the building.

What can actually happen is that you might be working away on your Apple computer, you might be working or let’s say a Excel spreadsheet, but you might be squinting your eyes, trying to concentrate on the numbers on the Excel spreadsheet, because the light coming into the summerhouse midday might well’s be so bright it actually is blinding.

So do think about getting blinds installed, and what we would recommend is getting blinds installed within the double glazing unit, this means that it’s much neater, and also you can simply just twist the plastic poll and the blinds can move into any angle that you would like.

Alternatively, you might be an entrepreneur, starting a brand-new business, and you’re going to be working night and day, in your garden office to make your business a roaring success.

Garden rooms can therefore be used for a wide range of different purposes, within this article, we are going to explain some of the common uses, for why so many people across the United Kingdom contact us to have a garden building built by Kingsley.

In no particular order, here are some of the popular uses for our garden rooms.


A garden bar


For a lot of us, when we’ve had a long and busy week at work, we might like to pop down to the local pub, to have a catch up with friends, to watch the football and to enjoy a nice glass of ale perhaps a glass of gin is more your cup of tea?

So, you could have multiple comfortable sofas, a nice bar area where you can prepare drinks, and perhaps a large screen television, to watch live sporting events on?

As a place to work

A lot of people now work from home, where for years and years, they may have worked in the same office block in the middle of town, a lot of employers are now encouraging that their staff work from home or perhaps adopt hybrid working, which simply means working from home for a few days a week.

So therefore you might want a garden office built, so that you can have a place where you can go and work.

We would say, the most common reason why people contact us, in the areas of Gloucestershire as well as other surrounding areas such as Bath and also Somerset, is because they want a well-built garden office constructed. Maybe we will have already built a garden office for that persons friends or family, so we might have come recommended, because that person knows that we can build very high quality garden offices.

We can soundproof the room as well, so when you step inside, close the doors, close the windows you will have a nice quiet room, where you can concentrate on your work.

We can also make the room nice and light, we can add huge bi-folding doors, which stretch the entire width of the garden office. We can add a roof lantern, which allows a lot of lights to come into the room, we can also build Windows as large as you would like. So for example, they might be a position in the garden office, where you can sit and look out over amazing views which might surround your property. You might have a property, that has sea views, so why not on that side of the garden office have a huge window, so large that you could place your desk in front of it, and enjoy looking out of the window at the sea, whilst you work.


A place to meditate or to enjoy yoga

A lot of people now enjoy practising yoga and also meditating, therefore you could have a garden room built, that offers a nice quiet place, to enjoy yoga meditating while listening to music.

Do you enjoy playing a musical instrument?

You might enjoy, for example playing a brass instrument, such as the saxophone?

You might therefore need a place where you can practice playing the saxophone, we can therefore build a garden room, that can be used as your place to play your musical instrument.

We can also soundproof the building for you.


You like a garden gym built?

For some people, they spend a lot of time at the gym, however travelling back and for the gym, that takes up quite a bit of time.

And when you go to the gym, that might be at a time that a lot of other people want to go to the gym at the same time as well. Let’s say that you visit the gym just after 530, you might find that a lot of the treadmills are taken, a lot of the cycle bikes are occupied, and you can’t find a free rowing machine to use.

This might mean that your left waiting around, for a piece of gym equipment to become available.

However, driving home from work, and instead of driving to the gym, instead you can just go home, and then you can just go to the garden gym whenever you like. All of the equipment will be available, because you own it, so you will be saving time, not just by not having to drive to the gym, but also because you won’t have to wait for gym equipment to become available, because you will own all of the gym equipment, the dumbbells, the cycle machine or the treadmill.

A lot of people are therefore looking to improve their health and fitness, by having a garden gym built. Our company, is able to build very large, air-conditioned garden rooms, which can be filled with a lot of gym equipment.

So, if you live in the areas of Somerset England, or perhaps in Gloucestershire or the Roman city of Bath, perhaps you are looking to improve your fitness? If you are looking to get a garden gym constructed, then we are most definitely the company to call. Our salesperson, can show you previous garden gyms which we have already built for customers.

Would you like a garden music studio built?

Our company builds quality garden music studios right throughout the United Kingdom.

So, whether you like occasionally playing the saxophone, or perhaps your are a full-time artist, and you need a place where you can record your music, why not have a garden music studio built by us?

Perhaps your a singer the likes to sing classical music, well you can sing to your hearts content, in one of our soundproofed garden buildings.

We can add soundproofing, as well as triple glazing, which can help to really reduce the amount of noise that’s heard outside of the building.

In this article, we are going to explain why so many musicians, come to us to have their music studios constructed. We shall also explain the many benefits of hiring Kingsley, to build this building for you.


Why does your company asked to build so many music studios?

We are asked, to build so many music studios, simply because we have experience builders, that scan build a high-quality building, that’s soundproofed. We can also install triple glazing, whether that be into the bi folding doors, the French doors, and into the Windows. We can also add extra thick panel insulation, because the panel insulation, and the centre was made from foam, this can also help to improve the soundproofing of the building.


Can you install all of the electrics into our music studio?

Yes, we have qualified electricians that work for us, our electricians, can install the lighting, that both indoor and outdoor lighting. Our electricians also of the power sockets, the electricians can also install the ventilation if you were to have a kitchen, or a bathroom installed.

You might also want solar panels fitted to the roof? And our electricians can install these for you.


Can you also install a kitchen area?

Perhaps you are a DJ, or Sunday that simply likes practising playing a musical instrument, for long periods of time. Therefore you might want a kitchen installed, so that you can make a refreshing cup of tea. We can install the kitchen, and we can also supply and install the appliances which are needed, such as fridge freezer, dishwasher.


Are you able to install triple glazing?

Yes, if you are having a music studio built, then we would recommend soundproofing is added to the ceiling, to the floor and also to the walls, but we would also recommend having triple glazing as well, this will further help to keep the sound within the building.

Crowded neighbourhoods

Perhaps you live on a residential housing estate, where the houses are closely built together? Or perhaps even just have one neighbour next to your house, because you live in the countryside, but because your house is in close proximity to theirs, you still need a soundproofed garden room constructed so that you can really play your drums loudly.

You might also find that practising your musical instruments, let’s say the piano, even though you enjoy playing the piano very much, the other family members live with within your house, well, they might not want to listen to you practice for long periods of time, they might even find this rather annoying you practising on your violin for long periods of time.



Therefore what is needed is an insulated room, that you can use anytime you like, that’s completely soundproofed and then you can practice playing your musical instrument whenever you like, whether your recording a new beat, or perhaps singing into the microphone, and because this is all completed within a soundproofed garden room, it can be soundproofed and it shouldn’t then your neighbours, because the room will be soundproofed. Many people come to us because they know will add very high quality soundproofing, which is very effective at reducing the noise heard outside the building.


How much does a soundproofed garden music studio cost?

We travel up and down the country, building quality music studios, one week we could be building a garden studio for an artist in the West Country, the following week we could be driving up to London to build a music studio for a different customer.

We can build a soundproofed music studio, with prices starting from just £25,000, the price then increases depending on how large would like the garden building to be, and whether you would like for example a bathroom to be installed as well?


How good is the soundproofing?

We can put quality soundproofing into the floor, into the walls, into the ceiling, and this can drastically increase the amount of noise which is heard outside of the garden building. What we can also do is install high-quality triple glazing, which does an amazing job of helping to keep the noise within the building.

Therefore, when you put a decibel reader outside of the building, and we the musician is inside, practising playing the piano, we are sure that you will be impressed by how much the noise has been reduced outside of the building, and also how much noise is contained within the building.


Temperature controlled garden rooms

It’s important to regulate the temperature within your music studio, for two reasons, one when you’re practising say playing the piano, will want the room to be at a nice comfortable temperature while you’re practising playing the piano.

At the same time, if you have music equipment, such as a grand piano you’re going to want to keep the room at a regular temperature to ensure that that music equipment is kept in a room which is at the right temperature.

Therefore what we can do is install air conditioning, made by Samsung or another good quality manufacturer of air conditioning units. We can also install underfloor heating, and also oil filled radiators, these can be installed so that there is a thermostat within the room, so that when the temperature falls below a certain temperature, the radiators can automatically switch on and start to warm the room.

When you combine this with really thick, really high quality panel insulation, this can help to keep the warm air in, during the winter months, and during the summer, where you want the room to be cooler, the same insulation can help to keep the warm air out of the building during the summer.




Let’s say that you are a musician, you may know exactly how you want your music studio to be built. You know how many rooms you need, the exact dimensions of the building, as well as also way you want the Windows and doors to be.

You might also want a kitchen area, you might want a bathroom, and you might want a very large area to place all of your music equipment. Therefore, we are the company to call, simply because our garden rooms are bespoke, so we can build them exactly the way you would like them to be built.


Guaranteed to last

Garden rooms, whether they are used as a place to enjoy an alcoholic beverage after a long and tiring day at work, or perhaps they are used as a music studio, where you enjoy playing the drums, often these buildings will cost in excess of £20,000.
You therefore want them to last as long as possible, and this is another reason why our company is often chosen to build garden rooms, simply because we guarantee the whole of the building to last for a long period of time.

We travel right across the United Kingdom, building high-quality music studios, we can therefore offer you a free and also no obligation quotation to build a music studio for you.

We can also offer to design 3-D drawings, which will show you exactly what your music studio could look like once built.

We now also build garden office pods


11th of September 2023


Garden office pods

By a country mile the most popular type of garden building that our company builds, are garden offices.
As more people than ever, are now working from their home, whether it be on a part-time basis or full-time often they a need a garden office as a place to work.


Why choose our company?

What’s great about our company, is that you can have a building constructed, that is bespoke, that’s also built to the exact size that you would like.

So, we can build a building, which is compact, that is not much bigger than a small greenhouse, or we can build an entirely different type of garden building, which spans the entire width of your garden and has multiple rooms.


Do you have a small garden?

A lot of homeowners here in the United Kingdom, might have a small garden, this is especially so if the property is a new build, because often they will have much smaller gardens when compared to some much older Victorian properties, which sometimes have very long gardens.

And you might be currently thinking, that a garden building, won’t be suited to your garden, because your garden is simply too small to accommodate a garden room?

However, this is where you can benefit from purchasing a garden office pod from us.

These buildings are small, and therefore often fit into the corner of a garden, and are just large enough, for the homeowner to fit a small desk within the room, as well as a bookshelf and an office chair.

However, despite these buildings being relatively small, you have to think of the benefit that they offer you.

They offer a quiet place to work, as well as the following benefits:



You might want a garden room built that’s totally detached from your house, and we can build a garden office pod for you, and this building can be completely detached from your house.

This means that, you will have a nice quiet room for you to work within, that’s totally detached from your house.



We can add top quality building, which has soundproofing to the walls, which is really good quality soundproofing and is can help the room to be nice and quiet inside.


Thick insulation

Even though the garden office pod, if a small building, it can still be very well insulated, so that you can use it in any weather.


But what exactly is a garden office pod?

Garden buildings are often referred to under many different names. For many years, they were simply described as “wooden summerhouses”- however as these buildings have become more popular, they are now used as gyms, as a place to work, and also a place to enjoy a refreshing pint of beer perhaps on a warm summers day.

Therefore garden room companies, therefore now describe their buildings, as everything from “garden bars” right through to “garden yoga studios”.

Yet a garden office pod, is simply a garden office that small in size.

In matter-of-fact a garden office pod, if it’s put behind a tree, within your garden, you might not even see it at all.
If you have a small garden, it can be fitted into the corner of most gardens easily. So, even if you have a small garden in Bristol, or in Bath, often we can still help you to design and build a garden office that will fit into your garden.



Always weigh up if you are buying a quality garden building or not

Prices for garden office pods vary massively here in the U.K (they can vary between 10k and 70k) yet just as the price varies, so does the quality of these buildings as well. Some buildings, when their built to a high standard can give you years and year of use, and require very little maintenance.

Some other garden buildings, can be a right headache from the get go- and what we mean by that is, sometimes they can develop leaks, sometimes the gaps between the doors and the actual building can sometimes allow strong drafts to come through.


Build quality

So, build quality is of massive importance, we build buildings that are very high quality. Our company has a very strong reputation for building garden office pods, which are of the highest quality. Once your neighbours have seen the quality of the buildings we build, your family and friends, they are likely to want one too, because they are high quality but also affordable.


Make sure that you can use the building all year round

As we all know, here in Blighty, our winters can get mighty cold?

Now you not likely to be very productive, in work, if you are shivering away in your garden office because your freezing cold.
So, you’re going to need a well-insulated building, which can be heated up at the flick of a switch, and that’s exactly what we can offer.

Our highly experienced builders, can cut what is called “panel insulation” made by Quinn insulation, they can put it in the cavity of the walls, the floor and also the ceiling, which will help to keep the building nice and warm for you.


How long will we have to wait to obtain planning permission?

So, let’s say that you are about to start a brand company, and you want a garden office to work in, in order to help start your business. Or lets say you’ve just landed yourself a new job, and they have asked you to work from home say three days a week. You’re going to want to have a garden office built as quick as possible.


Yet after reading online, you may now be thinking that you may need to obtain planning permission from Bath County Council before we can start to build the garden office for you.

When you call us, our builders can come out and meet you, we can sometimes offer you a quote there and then. At the same time, we can offer you advice as to whether we think that you will need to seek planning permission from Bath County Council, or whether the building can be built under what is called “permitted development” instead.

If the building can be constructed through “permitted development”, then our builders can start work more or less straightaway for you, if however you do need to seek planning permission first from the local council- then an application will need to be made with

Bath County Council, and it’s likely that drawings may need to be created by an architect to show the size of the building that you want built.


You are likely to be pleasantly surprised with our quote

Sometimes, some homeowners delay getting a garden building constructed, because they have heard that it might cost in excess of £50,000 to build!

However, when our quote comes into your inbox, you are likely to be pleasantly surprised with the price.

That’s because we can build luxurious garden buildings, which are guaranteed to last, which are very high quality and we can offer them with starting price of just £18,000.

We are therefore a very popular garden room company, because we offer fantastic quality buildings, but they are offered at very affordable prices to British homeowners.


As large as you like

In this article, we have concentrated on describing the benefits of owning a garden office pod, which is normally a small garden building.
Often these are placed in the corner of a garden, and if they are behind say a large holly bush you might not even see them from your house.
With that said, our company is still capable of building massive garden buildings, so much so, we can build a building that has multiple bedrooms, ensuites and even a large living room. So, we can build any sized garden room, prices vary between 18k and 70k.
So, when you hire us, we have the carpenters, the joiners, the electricians, the site managers, the architects, roofers, painters and decorators to build for you a building as large as you would like.

Why not call us for a quote?


Which features can make a garden room feel luxurious?



The word luxurious, well it has to be one of the most overused words in marketing, surely? After all, if used to describe everything from teabags through to high-value cars.

And if you were to grab a nice cup of tea, and you were to start having a look at various garden room company websites, well if you were to count up the amount of times that they use the word in “luxury” on their website, it can be a term that’s heavily used that’s the sure.

We all know what luxury means when it comes to high performance car, perhaps we you want it to be fast, have sporty styling, and perhaps an interior which is somewhere where you like spending time?

But what about a garden room?


Surely these are just four walls and made out of wood?

Well, what we would say is that garden rooms can be extremely luxurious, this article we hope to give you some food thought, that is some ideas that you might want to incorporate into the design of your garden room.

So, if you want a luxurious garden building, you’ve most definitely come to the right place.


Huge triple glazed windows

Here in Great Britain, we are lucky enough to have some spectacular scenery to look out onto, perhaps it’s Rolling Meadows within the countryside?

Perhaps alternatively you might be lucky enough to be able to look out of your window at the Atlantic Ocean, and have a view as far as the eyes can see, and you might see the occasional large vessel, passing through the waves?

So what we would recommend these having a garden building built, which has a large panoramic glass windows, perhaps you would like them to be triple glazed, which allows you to enjoy and take in the views that surrounds your property.

What’s around your property?

Do you look out over Woodlands?

Do you look out over the sea?

Do you look out over our splendid British countryside?

Why not create your garden building, so that it has huge windows and doors, so that you can simply sit down on a nice comfortable sofa, or perhaps a reclining chair, and you can take in the views which around your property.
What would make this space feel even more luxurious, is to have aluminium framed windows which stretch from the floor to the ceiling.

We would also recommend having top-quality, bi folding doors fitted, which open and close very easily.
What we would also recommend that they are triple glazed windows and doors, so that when the doors are shut, the room is nice and quiet, so much so that you can hear a pin drop.


Quality audio

We could install within ceiling, top quality speakers. For example, there are some fantastic manufacturers of audio equipment, for example we really like the brand Pure, it’s a fantastic company. They produce really high-quality audio equipment.
And imagine walking into your garden building, switching on your audio equipment, and really enjoying listening to the music as loud as you would like, what do you like listening to, jazz, classical or perhaps rock ‘n’ roll is more your cup of tea?


Underfloor heating

Picture the scene, it’s really cold outside, in matter of fact, you can see your breath as you breathe, and your fingertips are feeling rather freezing when you’re outside for any period of time.
Yet then imagine walking into your garden building, and when you take off your shoes, you instantly feel how nice and warm the floor is.

It’s really nice, it’s really warm, and that’s because you’ve invested in a high quality underfloor heating system, which we have installed right throughout the garden building.

So whether you’re on a call for work, or perhaps you’re just simply enjoying painting an oil painting, your feet can be nice and warm when they’re touching the floor, despite the fact that the temperature outside the garden building might well be freezing.


Air conditioning systems

There are many companies which produce very powerful air conditioning systems, that in a matter of minutes the temperature within the garden room can start to plummet.

So, imagine, it’s a really hot summer’s day, and as soon as you put ice cubes within your drink they start to melt, that’s when your outside in your garden on say a hot day in July.

And you know that you have some work tasks that you would like to complete in your garden office, and you would like the room to be nice and cool, you don’t want to feel overly hot, so imagine just with a few clicks of a remote control, and you can hear your air conditioning systems switching on, and then within a matter of minutes, the room is nice and cool, so much so that you feel the cool breeze blowing on your face.

We can therefore install a high-quality air conditioning system.

If you were to ask is which brand we would recommend a make of air conditioning systems, we would highly recommend Samsung air-conditioning systems, they offer some fantastic quality air conditioning systems.


A really high-quality bathroom

When you walk into a five-star hotel bathroom, they often have impressive bathrooms, really large spacious bathrooms and they are well equipped, for example with a Dyson electric hand dryer, a really powerful shower, made by say Mira, which make quality showers, as well as heated towel rails.

All of this can be incorporated within the bathroom of your garden building, you could even have a large bath or perhaps a shower installed, where you can simply have a nice refreshing wash within your garden building.


Are you sold on the idea of having a garden building built?

We build luxury, and we now have over seven years’ experience of building luxury garden rooms in Great Britain.

Over a nice cup of tea, we can discuss how you would like your garden room built, and we can then offer you a quote in a short period of time.

Are you thinking about having a garden bar built?


A garden bar, can make a brilliant place to socialise with your friends, to enjoy a nice pint of beer, and news never got to worry about, the bar not stocking what you like, because you own the bar!

We have built countless garden bars right across the United Kingdom, the becoming more and more popular, as people want a space where they can unwind, enjoy spending time with their friends, have a place where they can enjoy a drink right throughout the entire year.


So, what is a garden room bar?

We can design a building, that’s detached, the has its own bathroom, that insulated so it can be used right throughout the entire year.

Some garden buildings, are not suitable for use in winter. However, our buildings are, we talk to our customers, about what insulation they would like installed, for example the cheapest option is fibreglass, however we would recommend opting for panel insulation. Some customers, one of the most environmentally friendly option, so they opt for sheep’s wool, and we can place this into the walls for you as well.

As part of our team, we have experience joiners, the can build a bar for you, they can build the bar out of softwood or they can build the bar out of hardwood for you.

Then when you walk into your garden building, you might think you’ve actually walked into a real bar, it could be a wooden bar which stretches the entire length of the building. There could be a huge television screen hung on the wall, to watch live sporting events, then why not get really comfortable sofas, so you can have your friends over, have a chat and you will feel like you are in a real bar.



We travel up and down the United Kingdom, we build garden bars right throughout the country.
One of the reasons we are selected, to build a garden bar is because every building we build is bespoke. So you might have drawings that have been created by an architect, because you know exactly the way you want the building to look. Alternatively, over a nice cup of tea, we can discuss which options you want, we can then create a set of 3-D designs, once they have been approved, our hard-working builders can start work on building the garden bar for you.


Long guarantee

Some garden room companies, don’t guarantee their buildings for a very long period of time. Often because they know, for example the tar felt roof what last that long, alternatively, the cladding that the company uses, might not last a prolonged period of time.

However, the buildings that we build, all come with a long guarantee.


Why not have a garden bar and pool built?

We can build an extra-large building, which can house a full-size pool table, therefore you could have a large bar, stocked with all your favourite drinks, ranging from whiskeys through to gins, then, you could add a full-size pool table added within the room.

So, after a long day at work, you might want to go down to your garden bar, have a few games of pool, perhaps placing darts, or have a card game your friends. All while enjoying an alcoholic or non-alcoholic beverage.



We can take care of everything

With some garden room companies, they offer super low prices on their websites. Yet, you might quickly find that you need to hire your own electrician, you own plumber or your own painter and decorator to finish off the garden room.

One of the reasons why waste so popular, is we have all of these tradesmen in-house, so we can offer you a quote to install the electrics and plumbing and to complete the painting and decorating. Some customers, might want to hire their own tradesmen, such as their own electrician, so we can offer you a prize not to install the electrics.



Why go to the pub?

You might have a pub right on your doorstep, so it might be an absolute piece of cake, to get back and for the local pub and to see your friends.

However, in area such as Bath, a lot of people, within the West Country, might live in rural locations, so it’s harder to get to the local pub. Therefore, why not have a bar, builds within your garden, and have all of your friends come over to visit you. You might even want to have a jukebox, so that you and your friends can select their favourite music to play.


Will we need to obtain planning permission, from Bath County Council?

A lot of the garden buildings, we build, are built under permitted development, which simply means that sometimes, our builders can get straight to work in constructing your garden building.

However sometimes, planning permission is required, we will need to seek planning permission from the local council. When one of our sales team, comes out and meet you, that either Kingsley, Seb or perhaps Josh, they will be able to advise you whether we will need to seek planning permission or not.

We would say, that the vast majority, of the summerhouses, garden bars and buildings that we built, do not need planning permission. However, as every single building we build in is different, we will need to have a chat with you, about how large you want the building to be, and then we can advise you whether we think you need to seek planning permission or not.

If you do need to seek planning permission, then sometimes it can take many months to obtain planning permission for your garden building.

This does need to be kept in mind, because you might want the garden building built in a short space of time, however if planning permission is required, then it can take a long time, sometimes it can take a long period of time the planning permission to be granted, but once granted, often our builders can start work very quickly.



Have you constructed, many garden buildings within Bath?

Yes, we most definitely have, we build a large number of garden gyms, garden offices and garden bars. We are well known for building very high quality, well built, garden buildings which are offered at very competitive prices.

How much does a garden gym cost? And what are benefits of owning one?


The right throughout the entire year, we have enquiries from customers, who would like a quality garden gym constructed. A lot of people, now want to improve their health and fitness, whether that’s to shed a few pounds, or perhaps you have a marathon coming up?

We think, that a garden gym, makes it convenient and super easy to start your workouts whenever you like.

You haven’t got to jump in the car, wait in traffic, and then have to then wait even longer, to use the piece of gym equipment you want, when you get there, because the gym might be full of people.

And then when you finally do find a treadmill that is free, it might be rather dirty, covered in sweat and dust, and this might deter you from visiting the gym as much as you want, because the gym equipment might not be ready clean at your gym?

However, all of these disadvantages of using a local gym, can disappear, once you only your own garden gym built by us. It can be a luxury building, with air conditioning, top of the range gym equipment, a really good quality sound system, and also heaters, which can heat the room even on the coldest of winter days.


So how much does a garden gym cost to construct in the city of Bath?

Well, a lot less than you might think, we have built many garden gyms, for just £18,000, the average price is around £30,000, yet we can build a garden building anyway you like, so we can build a very luxurious garden for you.

It could even have a huge bathroom, with a heated floor, it could have a heated towel rail, and a huge walk-in shower, meaning that once the workout is finished, and just walking enjoy a nice refreshing within your garden building. We can design the bathroom so that it is ventilated and also so that it is heated.

So, we can build a garden gym for you anywhere within the United Kingdom, we are regularly travelling up and down the M4 motorway building so many garden gyms, and we don’t just build them in the summer we also build them right throughout the winter months as well.

You could have a luxury garden gym built for just £18,000, and when you consider that this room could help you to lose weight, it could help you to really improve your fitness, because you would have your own gym, at the end of the garden, that whenever you want to start your work out, you can just walk down there and start exercising whenever you like, that could be it’s 7 AM in the morning or it could be at 1 AM you can work out whenever you want to when you only garden gym.



How long does a garden gym take to build in Bath?

This very much depends on access to your garden, if you have a rear lane, when you have side access to your house, then often we can build most garden gyms, within the city of Bath, in less than three weeks.

However, some Victorian properties, don’t have a rear lane, and also the house might be terraced, so there is no way of taking the building materials, such as the plasterboard, the wood for the windows down the side of the building through a garden gate, because you might not have a garden gate.

However, we can take the building materials through your house, it might take us longer to build a garden building, but we can still build one for you anywhere within Bath. So, if you live in a terraced house, we can still build a garden building in your garden.



Super clean

When you visit a local gym, sometimes the gym equipment is not as clean as you would like. Of course, there are some gyms, which keep their gym equipment nice and clean, but there are some which don’t, and for example the treadmill could be sweaty, covered in dust and it could be dirty, with all then feet running on it.

So, one of the advantages of owning your home gym equipment, is that it’s only you, for the people that use your garden gym, that will be using it, so it’s much easier to keep that gym equipment clean.



Would you like a garden gym constructed?

We have a huge amount of experience, building garden buildings.

We have now been building garden rooms for over five years, we have built many summerhouses within the city of Bath. We also build garden rooms right throughout the West Country, one of the reasons why our company is so popular, in the West Country, is because we offer long guarantees on every single building that we construct.

We also employ, very experienced tradesmen, for example, some of our joiners, they have over 10 years’ experience, building structures such as gazebos, summerhouses as well as also decking.

We have built many buildings, within Bath, and that’s because we often come highly recommended by our previous customers, who recommend us to their friends and family.




Once your neighbours see the quality of our garden rooms, often they will want one built as well, therefore often our company builds many garden buildings, on the same street, for example we might build easily five garden buildings on one street in Bath, and that’s because, we often come highly recommended.

Would you like a garden room constructed with a hot tub?

Hot tubs are popular right throughout Bath and the Cotswolds, with many homeowners only one. Often, they are used during the summer, as a great way to cool down and perhaps enjoy a nice glass of bubbly champagne.

However, here in Great Britain, the weather is quite unpredictable, one day can be boiling hot, so much so we are smothering ourselves in waterproof sun cream. The next day, the weather can change, almost in an instant, with fine drizzling rain.

However, you might still fancy a quick dunk in your hot tub, you might want to sit in your hot tub even if it’s raining, therefore a lot of people have a quality gazebo, or sometimes a garden building, which has a large extension known as a canopy, which can offer a roof and side walls to the hot tub.

Therefore, a lot of people get on the dog and bone, that’s phone, to give us a quick call and ask us to build a luxurious garden room, with a canopy to the side. Sometimes, some of our customers have truly massive Jacuzzis built, sometimes these Jacuzzis are so large they can comfortably sit seven people, who are all enjoying the bubbly warm water. What a great way to have a nice plastic glass, and to enjoy some champagne or perhaps good quality wine?


Hot tub garden rooms

Often, our customers ask us to build a garden building, which has a huge decked area, the decking area can be made of composite. Then we can build a large canopy, the canopy can be very large, so that it completely offers a roof over the Jacuzzi. Fitted then into the roof of the Jacuzzi, can be really good quality outdoor speakers, for example you might want speakers made by Bang and Olsen, or perhaps you would like the speakers made by Bose, or perhaps made by Sony.

We build luxurious hot garden rooms, and often our customers know exactly how they want the building built, where they want the outdoor lights, what colour they want decking to be, they may even know what cladding they would like clad on the outside of the garden room, and we can build that for you.


Quality decking

When you step out of your hot tub, you’re going to want to step onto quality decking, in order to dry yourself off with a towel. You’re going to want the decking to be very low maintenance, you’re going to want it to last a long period of time and also be extra strong at so that you get good value for money. What we would recommend opting for composite, good brand of composite and have also composite steps built up to your Jacuzzi.

The composite steps, will allow you to easily get in and out of the Jacuzzi.
Outdoor lighting

On a summers evening, you might want to go and have a quick dip in your Jacuzzi, yet it might be pitch dark outside.
Even if it is pitch dark outside, you can have quality LED lights, which can switch on all around your garden room, or perhaps you would like them to just switch on to illuminate your Jacuzzi.

Then your Jacuzzi will be eliminated, and you can enjoy having a dip hot tub.



Once you’ve had a soak in your Jacuzzi, you might want to wash off and go to the bathroom to have a nice refreshing shower. You might want a power shower , so that you can have a wash, therefore we can install a complete bathroom within your garden building for you.
Just like going to the gym.

You could have a massive garden building, that’s air conditioned, which also has multiple electric radiators, and you can fill it with top quality, some of the best quality gym equipment. You could also have a complete bathroom as well, so when you’ve finished working out, say lifting all of those heavy dumbbells, you can simply jump into your power shower and have wash.

Just like in most luxurious health clubs, and spas, often is a large Jacuzzi with powerful water jets, which can help you to unwind, you could also have one of these fitted to the side of your garden building.

Therefore, after work out, let’s say 30 minutes of fast running on your treadmill, you might want a quick wash off in your shower, which is within your garden building, then you might wish to spend the rest of the evening soaking in your hot tub.


Bath and beyond

We really like the Victorian city of Bath, we think it’s a fantastic place with great architecture and some fantastic homes, some of which date back before the Victorian era, and some are more modern.
Whether you have a modern house, or perhaps you have a housemaid it Bath stone, which dates back to the Victorian era, we can build a garden room for you. You might live right within the main part of the city, she might have a small garden, if so, we can build a small garden room for you.

Alternatively, you might own a country mansion, on the outskirts of Bath, and you might have acres of land? We can build therefore a garden room as big as you would like, because you have so much space where we can build it to.

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, 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.
