Have you been longing to extend your living area or create a space in the garden but are worried about the cost of a garden room? Do you have a penchant for DIY and would love a summer project? Some of our partners offer self-build garden room kits, allowing you to keep costs down. We take a look at some of our favourites here.
The Bradwell Corner 28mm is perfect for adding sheltered outdoor living space to your garden. This uniquely shaped garden room fits perfectly into the corner of your garden and can be built in about 10 hours.
The Dalton 44mm by 1 Click Log Cabins is perfect for a home gym, office or even playroom. This garden building is 3.75m x 4.35m and can be built by two people in one or two days.
If you were looking for a gazebo – perhaps this Outdoor 44mm Timber Shelter might be perfect for you. Two people can build this 2.4m2 structure in about 6 hours. It comes with charming built-in internal benches.
The Domeo 2 is one of the smaller garden buildings offered by Vision Garden Rooms. It can be built by pros in a couple of days and may take the more unseasoned DIYer a week. Perfect as a BBQ Room or studio with outdoor space, the Domeo 2 comes in 6 different colours.
The Domeo 4 has wall to wall windows and would make a perfect garden office or hobby, or craft space because it is flooded with natural light. It would also make a great playroom allowing you to see the kids clearly from the garden or your house. Impregnation and rain gutters can be added as optional extras, but it will take about a week unless you’re a trained professional if you want to build this yourself.
Perfect as a yoga studio or other retreat or quiet space is Japan. This gorgeous garden room, complete with double glazed windows and truly allows you to embody nature with large doors and multiple windows that allow natural light in.
The Lugarde Sutton Summerhouse is one of the larger DIY garden buildings available. With a building floor area of 40m2, this combines a summerhouse, home gym or office with folding doors that lead to a lovely terrace area.
If you are looking for a perfect home working space, the Lugarde Gilbert Garden Home Office offers the ideal solution. This self-build garden room has two double-glazed windows with air grates and a double door that is double-glazed and allows in lots of light and air.
We think this Lugarde Desmond Summer House could make a fantastic guest room. It combines a 3m2 enclosed space with a 1.82m by 3m open room perfect as an outdoor relaxing area. This summer house could also be a great way to include a hot tub with storage and changing space attached. Made of solid pine with upgrades available to the walls and roof, this is a great space to consider!
We have only looked at a handful of the available DIY garden rooms, but it is clear to see many incredible garden buildings that could make a brilliant summer project you can enjoy for years to come! You can browse all the self-build garden rooms here.
