In The Self Build Garden Room Guide ebook we talk about the self-build kits available from Building With Boxes. We have just learnt that Building With Boxes has launched a new range of self-build garden room kits aimed at the trade market. They tell us they are also happy to supply these kits to self-builders like you.
The kits are available in two standard sizes; their Box 1 is 2.4m x 2.6m, and Box 2 is slightly bigger at 2.4m x 3.6m. They are a relatively simple, yet popular design and could be a good choice for you if you’d like the challenge of building your own garden room, but do not want to go to the lengths of designing the building and quantifying the materials.
The kits include a highly insulated SIPS core structure, double glazed doors, exterior cladding, roof covering and the plasterboard sheets for the interior. An electrical pack is also included, but it is worth checking to see what this actually includes as you may need more sockets, etc. for your intended use.
What’s not included:
The kit does not include the foundation system. As we explain in The Self Build Garden Room Guide, you have lots of choices when it comes to the foundations when building a garden room.
While plasterboard sheets are included for the interior of the room, you’ll have to organise the plastering and decorative finish. You’ll also need to think about floor covering.
How much do the kits cost?
The 2.4m x 2.6m Box 1 will cost you £4,670.37 + VAT = £5,604.06
The 2.4m x 3.6m Box 2 will cost you £5,344.42 + VAT = £6,413.30
We are not sure from the information we have been sent if there is also a delivery price from Building With Boxes Cornwall HQ to your home, our guess is there would be.
On top of the kit price, you will have to budget for a suitable foundation system, internal decoration and the connection of the electrical system by a qualified, certified electrician.
