They can all be customised and made to measure with bespoke and custom features.

We also offer information, guidance and advice on planning regulations and legislation on garden rooms. If you need more information or need to arrange a site visit, free of charge; contact the HGR Team today.

Perfect Home Office

Most of us simply use the extra space the garden room provides as a place to relax away from the main house, others have had the building specifically created to use as an Studio, art room, sound-proofed music room, gym, granny annex, self-contained accommodation,garden office, outdoor dining room, beauty therapy room, guest bedroom, children’s play room …the list goes on.

With the growing number of homeworkers and home-based businesses in the UK, the most common use of the extra garden space is the garden office. This is the perfect option for a home business officebecause it allows you to keep your home life and work life separate.

Before installation you should consider the following:

  1. 1. Useable all year round and adaptable.
  2. 2. Cool when warm / warm when cold.
  3. 3. Secure and Inhabitable
  4. 4. Positioned for ideal lighting throughout the day.
  5. 5. Simple foundation system.
  6. 6. Consider landscaping outside area, to complement garden room
  7. 7. Power supply and office utilities connection
  8. 8. Build time.
  9. 9. Consider materials depending on activities/work purpose.
  10. 10. Low running and maintenance costs.

 

Garden rooms in general are a fantastic, modern, innovative creation that allows you to gain extra space without the hassle of moving house or building an old-fashioned conservatory. In most cases garden rooms require little or no planning permission, but it’s advisable to check with your local authority before installing one.

Granny Annex Most Efficient

A Granny Annex is the most efficient and cost effect way of keeping elderly loved ones close to us and our home. It gives you loved a sense of independence, and gives you the sense of impartiality in your main home because the Granny Annex is built detached from it. It’s a win, win solution for all family members concerned. Most elderly loved ones do not want to impede in their loved ones lives and homes in their later years, which is very understandable because the last thing they want is to be a burden. The Granny Annex ensures that they have their own space and stay close to you, without hindering in yours.

The granny annex garden room is not only a great piece of mind solution, it is also a practical one. With the ever rising costs of care homes and nursing homes, building a granny annex is the more cost efficient. Starting at £18,000 compared to a year in a care or nursing home costing in excess of around £30,000. The initial outlay of a granny annex could seem expensive; most people utilise the sale of a loved one’s home to supplement the funding of an annex, making it a very cost effective solution.

Another invaluable aspect of a granny annex is the fact that it can be fully independent from you main home. The granny annex can have fully fitted bedroom(s), bath room and living area with a kitchen. Studies have shown more families are happier with loved ones living in a granny annex garden room compared to those living in care or nursing homes.

Garden Living Space

In our homes we always seem to need more space, it may be space for different reasons, but we always seem to need more. This desire and need has been recognised, to some extent by the government, as they announced relaxed extension planning for home owners.  Whether it’s minor to full-on home extensions, most home owners are striving to create a bit of extra room for the added requirements of modern family life. One way to tackle this problem is with a garden room, which come in various styles, materials and sizes.  Garden rooms, the majority; are ‘space consciously’ designed and built to accommodate that extra room and space we all seem to crave for.

The idea of the garden living space has picked up over the last couple of years, because of various factors. Morden life is very space conscious and always seeks to do more with less, garden rooms, garden offices, garden sunrooms and pods are designed and built to fit that bill. You don’t need to have a huge garden or back yard space to build a garden room space, a pod can just be big enough to fit you and your desk, laptop, iPad or computer game console, still succeeding to detach you away from the congested feeling of the family home, accommodating you with space to focus on your projects or leisure activities.

Over the last decade the number of run from home businesses has increased and this has been an influence to the need for garden rooms, specifically the garden office. The garden office allows you to work away from home at home, once you have left the outbuilding home office in the evening you can leave the files, computer and work telephone in your garden office and unwind without any distractions.

Garden rooms are also useful spaces to host or move certain features from your main home. Contemporary takes on the garden room has seen them extend to art studios, craft rooms, music rooms, gyms and of course games den/hangouts for those who have teenagers, ‘who need their own space’.

Depending on the size and location of your garden room or garden office in some cases you don’t even need planning permission or Building Regulations Approval.  Of course there’s strict exceptions so do check the latest buildings and extension regulations and consult your local council’s planning department just to be sure.
