Bespoke garden room prices
On their websites, some manufacturers of modular garden rooms feature price configurators. They allow you to choose options for your building and immediately see how those options affect the entire project cost.
If you're interested, look into these businesses:
The bespoke design is the way to go if you want a structure that is more specifically tailored to your requirements. We are frequently questioned if garden rooms with bespoke designs are significantly more expensive than their modular counterparts.
Customised designs typically cost extra, but only sometimes significantly more. When we compare bespoke quotes with modular ones, there is often a price difference. However, this is typically because customers select non-standard sizes and include additional designer elements!
As a guide, companies will give you a price per square meter cost to work out your budget. This sqm measurement is the footprint of your building, so width x depth.
Typically, the smaller the garden rooms footprint, the higher the cost per square meter. For instance, the price per square meter of a 4.5sqm garden room is nearly three times that of a 20sqm garden room.
We have researched the market to get an idea of bespoke design prices and ploughed the information into our calculator:
Bespoke prices are more than they were
When we started monitoring bespoke garden room prices to compile this guide, the price ranges were literally half what they are today.
Brexit and the pandemic affected material supply, and this has increased prices on essential components like OSB sheets dramatically. The price increases have largely remained in place and are now hit by inflation!
A few thoughts about bespoke garden room prices
Your building's footprint size will affect the price per square meter. Smaller buildings will have a higher price per square meter than larger ones. This is because you have the price loading of the doors and windows, electrics and other main structural components.
The bespoke garden rooms we are seeing are getting bigger, which means many projects now fall into the zone where they must comply with Building Regulations. Complying with these rules requires changes and additions to standard garden room specifications, which has a cost implication.
A Building Regulation compliant garden room specification will cost you more per square meter than a standard specification. Bare that in mind when considering the size of building you want to create.
