Build your own garden office

We’re rather excited by the new range of self build garden rooms / offices offered by Building With Boxes, they’ve cleverly combined all the latest building techniques, with a sharp style, and we are sure the concept will prove very popular with those of you looking to build your own garden room / office.


The Building With Boxes range is produced by Building With Frames who have extensive experience in housebuilding, and they have adapted this experience in modular building for the DIY garden office sector.

Whilst we know there are a lot of people who fancy building their own garden room, this range is not limited to just the self builder, the kit can also be purchased, delivered to site and constructed by a local builder.


The Building With Boxes design unitises the popular Structural Insulated Panel (SIP’s) building system which has revolutionised the garden room industry, not only are they quick and easy to install, but they create a highly insulated building which will be comfortable to use all year round.



The garden room kits include everything you will need  to build the room (the groundworks need to be organised seperately) and the list includes some high spec materials, such as Alu Clad high performance Rationel windows and doors.

The self build range comes in four standard sizes which are available off the shelf, for quick delivery:

  • Micro: 2.4m x 2.4m £5,760 plus VAT but including delivery
  • Modus: 2.4m x 3.6m £8,640 plus VAT but including delivery
  • Max: 2.4m x 4.8m £11,520 plus VAT but including delivery
  • Mega: 3.6m x 3.6m £12,960 plus VAT but including delivery


As you can see the prices are very attractive and you could make a significant saving building the room yourself compared with similar specification fully installed garden rooms.
