Time at Home – Time to Self-Build?

Changes to the way that many of us work has meant that more of us are working from our own homes (or gardens, when the weather permits it). With children at home at school and young adults home from university, many households have all family members at home at the same time, putting space under pressure and quiet space at a premium.

For many, a spare bedroom, dining room or conservatory may offer a space to work away from normal family life. However, particularly where there are challenges with children at home, vulnerable people or simply difficulties with achieving quiet and productive workspace, finding a suitable place to work or have some space, can be a challenge.

Typically, it will take the confident installer approximately one week to complete the shell installation, with internal and external finishes to follow. You don’t even have to have a hard standing or concrete base to install the garden room on top, as these rooms can be installed on a more simple concrete pad system. This can be done yourself, by digging a series of 400mm x 300mm holes (depending on ground conditions) which are filled with post mix. Collectively, these will form a strong and solid base for the DIY garden room to sit upon.

Future SIPS offers a variety of different models of flat pack garden rooms. These designs are based on our most popular garden rooms produced and installed by our sister company, Future Rooms.

Each garden room kit can be purchased in a range of sizes to fit your space and these are available to order now. Lead and delivery times are currently approximately 2 – 4 weeks.

We can also offer a bespoke DIY room package if you would like a specific shape or size to fit your garden space.

Really, really pleased with it

Really pleased with it all and enjoy sitting and taking in the view, glass of wine in hand of course! We did new decking immediately outside of it, in order to open the bi fold doors fully as an extension to the room.  All in all, really, really pleased with it.

Such excellent service!

My wife and I just wanted to thank Richard, yourself and the rest of the team for all the support, ad hoc technical tips and advice that we got whilst building our Garden Room. I know that I visited the showroom 2 or 3 times and Richard and the team, even though quite busy, showed us every courtesy and help. Such excellent service! I have finally completed the build of our 3 x 5m Garden Room, and we are very pleased with it.
