Garden Room Extensions
Updated: Jan 9
What Is A Garden Room Extension?
Garden Room Extensions are growing in popularity as a practical and cost-effective way to extend a house. We define a ‘Garden Room Extension’ as an evolution of a traditional conservatory, as you are able to create additional space within your home which can be used all year round without necessarily requiring building regulations or planning permission*. It is important to note, that in order to not require building regulations approval a ‘Garden Room Extension' must have an external grade door separating it from the main house. If this is not the case and you require an internal wall to be removed then building regulations approval will be required.
Do Garden Room Extensions Take Long to Build?
OffPOD Garden Room Extensions are modular and steel-framed, meaning that build time is much faster than traditional methods without any compromise on quality or durability. Once the foundations are laid a typical 4m x 4m OffPOD Garden Room Extension can be completed within 2 weeks, this includes decorating and all electrical work! An extension of similar proportions built traditionally may take 6-8 weeks and that’s without taking into account the all too common delays.
It may come as a surprise that a Garden Room Extension can be completed in such a short period of time however we at OffPOD are able to do achieve this through meticulous planning, preparation, and organisation. Every extension build, no matter how big or small comes with a fully comprehensive project plan which ensures all aspects of the build run to schedule. OffPOD operates in a very different manner to some more ‘traditional’ builders, in that each project has its own dedicated team who will work 8am to 4pm every day until the project is complete.
How Long Does It Take To Get Your Garden Room Extension?
Depending upon the time of year and demand, construction of your Garden Room Extension can be ready the begin in as little as 4 weeks from when the initial deposit has been made. This means that within 6 weeks of parting with any money your home extension can be completed and ready to enjoy!
As part of our consultation process, we have architects on hand who are able to create digital renders to scale which demonstrate how the finished extension will look. We will also superimpose the design onto your property, to give you true-to-life insight into how the finished build will look. This can also be hugely advantageous when weighing up different design features and elements, as you will actually have to opportunity to see how they work with the overall design and the rest of the property before committing. OffPOD strives for perfection and the satisfaction of our customers, so we go the extra mile to ensure that the end product is everything it was supposed to be and much more.
Considerations For Your Garden Room Extension
Location & Size
Despite Garden Room Extensions being able to be built onto any part of your house, you need to consider how much space you have, and where best to place the extension. It can often be a toss-up between increasing living space and losing some of your much-loved garden. OffPOD is more than willing to work with our clients through such decisions which can be a little daunting at times.
The price of a Garden Room Extension is really dependant upon the specification of the build as well as other aspects such as groundworks and access. A typical 6m x 3m OffPOD Garden Room Extension, to be used as a dining room or lounge would cost in the region of £28,500 ex vat
OffPOD builds steel-framed Garden Room Extensions, this means they a durable and engineered to last. These garden rooms offer an impressive lifespan and should last just as long as a traditionally built extension. For additional peace of mind OffPOD Extensions all come with the offering of a 10-year insurance-backed guarantee.
From garden offices to guest bedrooms, a Garden Room Extension can incorporate any design style. Additionally, Garden Room Extensions can be designed to complement your garden design/theme or be rendered or brick slipped to match the exterior of your house. There are no limitations to what can be incorporated into your build. Ultimately we aim to bring our client's creativity to life.
Although officially a Garden Room Extension doesn’t necessarily have to adhere to building regulations ours still do in terms of the insulating properties. Ultimately in order to achieve a space that will keep you warm in the winter and cool in the summer a high level of insulation is a necessity
It is always a good idea to look and see if the location of your extension is going to require additional groundwork other than just laying the foundations. If there are any drainage systems or manholes which will require relocating then such a service can add significant cost to your overall budget and increase the time it takes to complete the project.
