Are you inspired to design and build your own garden room or office?

Well, you've come to the right place!

Basically if you want to build your own garden room you have two options - buy a kit or design your own building from scratch

A garden room kit is like putting the pieces of a jigsaw puzzle together

A garden room kit is a great idea if you are looking for the challenge of the build but with the peace of mind of a tried and tested building system.

With garden room kits you are supplied with the materials and an assembly guide to put the building together.

All styles are available in kit format from cubist contemporary designs through to whimsical cottage style buildings.

We have researched the market for you and have put together a guide to what's currently available.

If you want to create something unique you'll want to design your garden room from scratch - we can help you do this

We've designed and built garden rooms ourselves and have a unique position in the market where we get to learn about the different building systems and materials used by professional garden room designers.

We have gathered together all this knowledge into the Self Build Garden Room Guide - we can safely say its the most comprehensive guide on the subject and will walk you through the thought process of a professional garden room designer.

The Self Build Garden Room Guide eBook is now in its Third Edition

The garden room market is adopting new materials and building techniques all the time. Since we launched the Second Edition of the guide in July 2015 several new systems have been adopted - particularly when it comes to garden room foundations.

We have therefore gone through The Self Build Garden Room Guide and updated the different sections with details of new materials that  professional garden room designers are using.

We have also added a completely new chapter looking at garden room design trends which might give you inspiration for your own project.

By buying The Self Build Garden Rooms guide today you will be getting access to the PDF eBook and will be able to access the content in the members' area of this website. You will also get free access to future updates of the guide.

"If you are thinking of building your own garden room, then this guide will be your bible."

"In this guide we will share our two decades of experience in the garden room industry, to give you an insight into the materials and building systems professional garden room designers use. You can then apply this knowledge to your own garden room design”

The Complete Self Build Garden Room Guide = eBook + sample set of plans

When we first wrote The Self Build Garden Room Guide we decided against including a sample set of plans, as the chances are so great that you intend to build a different size or style of garden room.

Over the years, though we have been asked several times by our self-builders for examples of 2.5m high garden room build-ups. We have been happy to help along the way, but decided now is the time to create a sample set of plans.

We have drawn up a set of plans that show the build-up of a 3m x 3m garden room with a canopy roof. The 70-page document includes 10,000 words of text explaining the different steps of building a 2.5m high garden room with a warm roof.

Even if you plan on building a different size garden room, these plans will give you valuable insight into the design of a 2.5m high garden room.

As well as the plans we have estimated the materials you would need to build this room along with estimated costings for the project.

FAQ's

Does the guide include a set of plans?

The basic eBook package (£39) does not include a set of plans. It is designed to show you the different building systems and materials used by professional garden room designers. You can use this information to design your own garden room.

The more expensive The Complete Self Build Garden Room Guide package (£75) does include a set of plans for a 3m x 3m garden room with canopy roof. This building is designed to be 2.5m high which makes it Permitted Development friendly.

Even if you plan to build a different size garden room, you will find these plans useful as they showcase the typical build-up of a 2.5m high garden room. We also explain our choices when designing each element.

We plan to draw up plans for other sizes and styles of garden room. If you buy The Complete Self Build Garden Room Guide package (£75) they will be added to your account as we publish them.

Do you sell the plans separately?

No. The Self Build Garden Room Guide eBook and any Plans and Costings we produce need to be read in conjunction with each other.

Throughout the Plans, we make reference to the materials you might use. We explain these materials in greater detail in The Self Build Garden Room Guide eBook.

The eBook also contains valuable information about Planning Permission and Building Regulations which you should be fully aware of before contemplating building a garden room.

In short, The Self Build Garden Room Guide eBook can be read without the Plans element. But, the Plans and Costings need to be read in conjunction with The Self Build Garden Room Guide eBook.
