When researching your garden room options, you will quickly realise that some companies include more in their quote than others. Some companies will offer just the building, leaving you to organise the installation of the foundation with another company, and then at the end of the project, the connection of the electrics with a local electrician.
There are then companies that offer what is known as a turnkey service whereby they handle the whole project for you, from initial design to final decoration. This service includes the installation of the foundation and any groundworks to connect to the mains services and the final connection to the electrics and plumbing & sewerage if you choose to add a w.c. This means as the installation team leaves the site, you can move straight in and start enjoying your new room.
Garden Spaces offer this type of end to end service. They describe themselves as a 'One Stop Shop' taking care of their customers' needs 'in house' - be that water, waste, electrical connections. They also handle the Planning Permission application and Building Control approval if required. This type of project-managed service removes the stress out of the build, allowing you to sit back and enjoy the process.
Garden Spaces are a long-established, experienced name in the industry. Alongside their tailor-made garden rooms, they build large complex school buildings under their Education Spaces brand and high-spec garden homes under their Annexe Spaces brand. So, the Garden Spaces team has capacities and capabilities beyond most small garden room box providers.

The photos in this article are of a bespoke garden gym building with a secret storage room - we will share more details about this project in a few days.
Be aware of the differences when comparing prices
When comparing companies take time to research what is included in the price quoted. Turnkey projects like Garden Spaces offer are going to appear more expensive than a quote that just consists of the building, with delivery, the foundation, electrical connection etc, charged as extras.
While turnkey may seem more expensive at first glance, the project managed service with materials and trades arriving at the correct times, so you can sit back and watch your garden evolve, is worth its weight in gold, in our opinion.
