The team at Moonalabs have recently launched a range of hardwood garden offices. The Moonalabs range stands out from the mass of Cedar clad cubes on the market, as they have chosen Teak for the exterior cladding of their buildings. You might think that the use of hardwood, particularly Teak, will make the Moonalabs range expensive. But far from it, prices start at £11,294 for a fully insulated 2.2m x 2.2m building (including heating, assembly, foundation, electrical cabling, ground work and VAT).
Durable Teak Cladding
Teak cladding is not only beautiful, but Teak also has the highest decay-resistance among all woods, giving the garden room a long, maintenance-free lifespan.
Teak has been the material of choice for garden furniture designers for years because of its high oil and rubber content, which helps it repel moisture. These qualities make it a good choice for garden office cladding.
Moonalabs’ Teak boards are fully seasoned and based on customer preferences, coated with linseed oil which adds a lovely dark lustre and helps repel moisture further, or sealed and sanded to achieve the natural teak colour.
The Moonalabs team ensure that all of the Teak they use comes from responsibly managed FSC certified forests. For each tree that is cut down, more than one is planted.
Stylish Garden Office Design
The Moonalabs garden office design is stylishly simple in its appearance. We like the solidity of the Teak cladding, the large glass panels and the French doors with large Teak handles.
Customers can choose the position of two openable windows anywhere in the pod, including the back. A Teak clad door is fitted with a four-bolt security lock.
Inside, you have a choice of real wood veneer for the walls. This is a lovely alternative to the plain white interiors, so commonly offered in garden office design. You can also choose from a range of HPL laminate designs and colours.
Moonalabs Come In Different Sizes
The Moonalabs range come in sizes from a comfortable 2.2m x 2.2m up to a large 9.2m x 5.2m. The Moonalabs team tell us that the size of their offices is customisable for the customer's needs.
Modular Design For Quick Installation
Moonalabs prefabricate their offices in their workshops; this means the modular panels are constructed in optimum conditions. The modules are then delivered to the site and assembled by the Moonalabs team. With this system, on-site build times are typically just a day.
Moonalabs garden offices are designed for comfortable year-round use with a multi-layer build-up that includes a steel frame, marine plywood and 100mm of Glasswool insulation, in addition to an oil-filled radiator encased in a Teak radiator cover with shelf.
Moonalabs is fully wired electrically. A medium-sized garden room will comprise six LED lights encased in solid Teak, three power sockets and two USB charging points. There is also an ethernet port for an internet connection. The electrical installation is included in the price and is performed by a qualified electrician.
Moonalabs are available throughout the UK
The Moonalabs range is available for installation throughout the UK. Lead times are typically 7 to 9 weeks from confirmation of order. The range comes with a 10-year warranty for peace of mind.
