We have included a separate document that looks at the traditional concrete slab foundation, if that is what you prefer. Learn more

Since we launched our sample plans, we have had emails asking about the build-up of a cold roof on a garden room. Making use of insulated roof panels and creating a eaves detail or a roof canopy.

With our new 3in1 - 3m x 3m Cube Garden Room Sample Plans we have tried to answer these questions showing you a typical build-up of three different roof types - cold roof, warm roof and insulated roof panels.

In one set of plans, we have designed a popular 2.5m high cube shaped garden room to showcase the different build-ups.

The original version of these plans utilised a concrete slab foundation, but they take a lot of work to install and are quite expensive. So, in this update we suggest plinth foundations, the build-up we show would also be suitable for ground screws. We have included a separate document that looks at the traditional concrete slab foundation, if that is what you prefer.

Interesting fact

The majority of people who buy our sample plan sets actually end up building a different size garden room! They use the information in the plans to create their own design. Using our SketchUp models as a starting point.

The sample plans come in PDF format so they can be read on a variety of devices.

Cost Comparison

Each sample set of plans comes with a spreadsheet which estimates the materials needed for the project and their cost.

You can open these spreadsheets in Excel or the free Google Sheets application.

Material estimates & costings

The sample plan set comes with a spreadsheet where we have estimated the materials and costs for the project. We have also added an overview list of materials which you could use for pricing your own project.

The spreadsheet also includes a comparison of the self-build costs with those of buying a similar specification garden room on a full-service basis.

Cost Comparison

Cost comparison

We have compared the estimates to build each garden room with the costs of buying a comparable specification building on a full-service basis.

Cost Estimates

Material & cost estimates

We have estimated the materials needed from the measurements on the plans and costed them out.

Material Lists

Material list

From our estimates, we have totalled up the materials needed for each garden room specification to create a handy shopping list.

Layered SketchUp Models

The sample set of plans comes with the SketchUp models used to create them, so you can explore the build-up in further detail and modify it if you like.

We designed them in the Pro version of SketchUp but the models can be opened in the SketchUp for Web which is free to hobbyists.

Layered SketchUp models

With the 3in1 - 3m x 3m Cube Garden Room Sample Plans package, we have included the layered 3D models we used to create the plans. These models can be opened and played with, in SketchUp for Web the free version of the popular software used by garden room designers.

You will be supplied with two models used to create these sample plans. One has the scenes from the sample plans which you can explore in more detail. The other, allows you to turn different layers on and off and tweak the design as required.

These models are valuable as you can explore and measure aspects - even on your phone via the SketchUp Viewer app. 

You can even edit these models to modify the design to your liking.

Layered SketchUp Models

Fully layered models

These are the models we used to create the sample plans. Each element is on its own layer so you can switch layers on and off to explore the build-up further.
