We were recently asked by i-build Magazine to contribute to an article on self build garden rooms. The article is worth a read as it covers the main aspects you need to consider when building your own garden room. It also looks at some of the garden room kit options available.

Tools to help you start designing your garden room
We have recently updated our Self Build Garden Rooms website, its now much easier to access our tutorials on learning to design a garden room using the FREE 3D modelling tool Sketchup. Within a couple of hours you should be comfortable enough with the tool to start playing with ideas for your own garden room.
A look at elements of garden room design
We have started to look at different aspects of garden room design and how you could implement these features into your own designs. Our first article looks at designing a garden room with shed. This has become a very popular design trend over the last year or so and we look at the different layout options adopted by professional designers.
There’s a book to guide you through the self build process
We have also written a book which looks at different aspects of designing and building a garden room, from the rules & regulations you need to comply with to a look at the materials and building techniques adopted by professional garden room designers.
We can safely say it is the most comprehensive publication on the subject. Learn more about what is covered in the book.
Find self build garden room kits
Our new Find a Supplier tool lists suppliers who sell their garden rooms in kit format for you to put together. This is a great idea as you have the benefits of a tried and tested design and building system, but the challenge of building it yourself.
