Oak Garden Rooms In All Shapes and Sizes
Frequently Asked Questions
Made to measure
The 3D designer above shows a couple of the most popular sized Garden Rooms that we sell: the 3 x 3m and the 4 x 4m.
Because each Garden Room is hand-made from scratch, we can make any size you'd like, with any design or roof shape. You're not just limited to square Garden Rooms, they can be made to fit any area, even if every side needs to be a different length.
Each room is designed on computer first to make sure every single measurement is exactly what you need, then our craftsmen use their knowledge and skill to translate the design into the exact angles and cuts to bring it to life.
Each frame is constructed in our yard so you can be confident everything fits together correctly. While in our yard, all of the joining pieces are labelled, so when your builder comes to erect the Garden Room at your home, it's simply a case of matching the marked pieces back together.
Supply of Oak Frame
As oak specialists, we provide the oak frame and softwood rafters for your Garden Room. There are many companies across the UK that will offer you advice on the many different types, features and standards of glazing that can be custom made to fit into our Garden Room frames.
We provide the glazing strips to hold the panes in place as well as all of the measurements that your glazer will require.
Roofing your Garden Room
Your kit comes with a full, structured timber roof with three beautiful Oak Trusses and supporting softwood rafters.
You can optionally purchase cedar shingles from us too. Untreated shingles are the most common and will still last 20+ years. Treated shingles have a 25+ year lifespan but are a very dark brown colour. Untreated is the most popular choice.
The oak frames are strong enough to take slate tiles if you'd prefer. These can be sourced from a standard builder's merchant.
You will need further roofing materials to fully seal and optionally gutter and insulate your garden room roof. This advice can vary from builder to builder based on their previous experiences. We can talk to your builder about different options if required.
Groundwork and Supporting Brickwork
As with any building, the ground will need to be properly prepared to provide a solid foundation for your Garden Room. You should ask your builder to take a look at your location as each case may have different requirements. We can provide a PDF guide for a standard type of foundation that your builder can use as a starting point.
The standard Garden Rooms in the 3D builder above are designed to sit on a shallow course of bricks that are not provided in the kit.
Because our frames are hand made each time, if you'd prefer to have the bricks higher we can accommodate this without problem.
Regardless of the height of bricks you choose, all of the measurements will be specified for both the bricks and the oak frame in the technical drawings we produce when you order. Your builder can then work to the drawings knowing that the oak frame will site perfectly on top.
Our Oak Garden Rooms are delivered ready for assembly at your site by you or your builder. Allow an approximate 8 week (from drawing sign off) lead time for us to make and deliver your bespoke Oak Garden Room.
