Building With Boxes have tailored one of their standard designs to maximise the views of this unusual site.
We are having to eat our words with this post, we have been known to say that suppliers who offer standard designs don’t have a great deal of flexibility when it comes to customising their designs, and that if you want a garden room tailored to your individual needs you need to go down the bespoke design route, but we were wrong!
Not every garden is flat and square, and can appear problematic if you are thinking of building a garden room, but this is where bespoke design comes into its own!
Is an off the shelf garden room or bespoke garden room best for you? This guest post by Swift will help you decide

Swift Garden Rooms explain the benefits of bespoke garden room design in their latest guest post.
In an industry full of contemporary design it’s refreshing to see a company that specialise in traditional style garden buildings, full of character and design features. Phoenix Timber Buildings are specialists in bespoke design meaning that every building they create is unique and tailored to the customer’s specific needs and tastes.
As well as being able to create tailor-made garden rooms, offices and studios they are also able to design and build traditional garages, premium summerhouses, workshops and sheds.
As each building is made to order it can be finished exactly how you want, Phoenix can offer a completely finished ‘turn key’ option where your garden office is ready to move into and start work straight away or they can supply a ‘shell’ with a long list of options that you can pick and mix such as cladding, insulation, internal finishes and electrical systems this offers the customer flexibility on finish but also control over cost.
Phoenix Timber Buildings are competitively priced and garden office and traditional garages start at £2,040 for a 10ft x 8ft (£30 per sq ft) for the basic shell. Prices are inclusive of delivery and assembly on site.
Buildings can be installed on site in less than a week and come with a guarantee which includes two years call out against faulty parts or workmanship.
Based in Farnham, Surrey Phoenix Timber Buildings have a show site which is open 9 – 5 seven days a week, which offers customers the valuable option of seeing the quality of the workmanship before buying. Phoenix also have a section on their website where you can buy ex demo garden buildings at massive discounts, but you have to hurry buildings at a 40% discount aren’t around for long!

Blue Forest stands out from other garden room manufacturers because they build tree houses. Tree houses are no longer only the domain of children – far from it, Blue Forest create magical, inspirational spaces for adults.
Don’t think because you don’t have a suitable tree you can’t have a Blue Forest building as they can deliver a whole range of unique structures.
Blue Forest specialise in bespoke design, creating a building specifically tailored to your needs and tastes. Blue Forest are happy to work on a ‘Design Only’ or a ‘Design and Build’ basis, a small fee is taken up front – typically 4% of the construction cost, this covers a comprehensive site survey and a unique bound design portfolio which includes specifications, itemised quotation, construction schedule, scale plans and 3D rendered images of the proposed designs.
For the level of individual service they offer Blue Forest’s buildings are reasonably priced, as a rule of thumb prices range between £170 -£250 per square foot of floor space, if you have a fixed budget Blue Forest can work within these parameters.
Blue Forest has a strong emphasis on sustainability – the materials chosen and the techniques of craftsmen create a building which with a little maintenance will last in excess of 60 years.[caption id="attachment_323" align="alignleft" width="300" caption="Inside the Hightec Hideaway by Blue Forest Ltd"][/caption]
Because of the uniqueness of each building it’s difficult to list all the materials used but Blue Forest buildings are clearly well specified and comply with Building Regulations. Planning permission will normally be required but the Blue Forest team is well equipped to offer advice and guidance.
