Project Description


John’s journey: John was looking to buy an off-the-shelf summerhouse and turn it into a garden office by putting insulation on the walls himself. He quickly realised that would seriously impact the internal space & by chance saw us on facebook.

His brief: A garden office to work from home & usable all year round & all on a strict budget. John was happy to do some of the work himself to bring the cost down but wanted a quality finish.


Working to such a strict budget meant we had to think hard about our construction method to see how we could deliver to the restrictions yet not compromise on our quality. He opted for upvc doors and windows and a slightly less expensive cladding. We developed a new construction method for Johns garden building that eliminated some of the more costly wet trades while still giving a beautiful finish.  John also got involved by roping friend and family in to lay the foundations themselves under our guidance.  We always maintain tight cost control & on this job, we excelled ourselves.


“it’s been great working with the guys through every bit of the process, having a laugh and making good friends with them. They would pass the beer challenge. I am over the moon with the office & my neighbours have all commented on how good it looks. Nothing has been a problem for them and they have bent over backwards to help me by understanding exactly what I did & didn’t want”
