If you are a crafter, having a dedicated space to unleash your creativity can make all the difference. While working on creative projects within the house certainly has its conveniences, there is something special about having a fully insulated garden studio as your personal craft haven. This is where garden studios truly shine, providing a customisable and purpose-built environment perfectly tailored to your creative requirements. This 3m x 2.4m building by Sanctum Garden Studios is a great example of a garden craft room.
Unlike other types of garden buildings, such as sheds or summerhouses. Garden studios are fully insulated and double-glazed, meaning you can comfortably use them throughout the year. Regardless of the season or weather conditions, you can escape to your creative sanctuary and immerse yourself in your craft without limitations. Unlike working inside the house, where you might need to pack up your materials at the end of the day, a garden studio allows you to leave your projects undisturbed, ready for you to pick up where you left off during your next session.
Crafting materials and equipment requires a safe and moisture-free storage space. With insulation in the floor, walls, roof structures, and specialist membranes for moisture control, a garden studio ensures that your valuable supplies remain in optimal condition. Collaborating with experts like Sanctum Garden Studios enables you to strategically position doors and windows to maximise space for material storage. Just imagine the convenience of having all your supplies neatly organised and readily accessible within arm's reach!
One of the unique advantages of purchasing a garden studio lies in the opportunity to work closely with the studio designer to bring your vision to life. From selecting the internal finishes to choosing the door and window configuration, you can create a naturally light workspace that inspires creativity. The glazed doors and various window styles that are available not only establish a seamless connection between indoor and outdoor spaces but also provide views of the surrounding garden and its ever-changing seasons, which can be creatively inspiring.

One of the key factors that led Michelle to choose Sanctum Garden Studios was the flexibility offered by their foundation system. Unlike other options that require laying a concrete slab, Sanctum's studios come with their own foundation system designed by a structural engineer. This feature not only saves the time and effort of organising the installation of the concrete slab with another company but also saves you money, as Sanctum Garden Studios include the foundation in the overall building cost. A 3m x 2.4m Contemporary Overhang building starts at £14,995, including VAT.
As we can see, Michelle's craft studio is a lovely light space. This is thanks to the French doors and a small opening window that can be easily opened for ventilation. The studio's interior features light grey laminate flooring, white melamine walls, and directional lighting - all included in the studio cost.
Buying a garden craft room from Sanctum Garden Studios is a quick process. Lead time from placing your order is 4 to 6 weeks. The streamlined installation phase for this project was completed in two days on-site, meaning minimal disruption for Michelle.
All that remains as the installation team leaves the site is for your to organise for a local electrician to run the cabling from the junction box on the outside of the studio up to the house. Then your craft studio is fully functional and ready to use.
