The Garden Room is exactly what you’d expect – a room for your garden. The Garden Room, which begins life as a humble shipping container, can be used for a multitude of purposes. If you can think it, we can build it! We began creating and converting Garden Rooms from 10ft, 20ft and 40ft shipping containers for homes across the United Kingdom after experiencing continued and increased demand for space saving solutions. Garden rooms are the perfect alternative to a permanent structure, and much less costly than a home extension, which is exactly why they are becoming a popular choice for home owners across the UK who are looking for a cost-effective solution to surplus space at home. Converted shipping containers are the best answer to additional space without the stress, large budgets and lifestyle changes that are essential to moving to a new house or extending your home.
Whether the use of your garden room is for a home gym, office, studio, man cave, children’s playroom – the choice is yours – and as they are made from anti-corrosive steel, they are unequivocally developed to withstand the test of time. The price is fully set at the beginning of the order, and the Garden Room can be fully customised to your exact needs and usually built within 2-4 weeks – no two garden rooms are ever the same! It’s a smooth process to get your Garden Room in-situ and fit for purpose. We’re pleased to offer a delivery service to any UK mainland address where our professional team install your converted Garden Room on site. All Garden Rooms are covered by a comprehensive 5-year structural guarantee against any defects, so you can rest assured that you’re Garden Room will remain to be in top condition and if not, we’ve got your back.
