Green Retreats have recently completed this contemporary garden room which is to be used as a lifestyle retreat for the owners, and it certainly looks a wonderful place to chill out!
Dab Den is offering a unique opportunity to buy their contemporary garden room show building and save £7k on their RRP.
Dab Den explains the proposition:
We decided to sell the Show den we have up at Happy plant Garden centre, North of Aberdeen so we can build one of our new designs. As much as I love the existing Den, and will be sad to see it go we are very excited about the prospect of what we are about to build.
This is a really good quality den, built out of SIP panels, clad in High grade Siberian larch, with toughened double glazed, argon filled, aluminium and powder coated sliding doors, with timbertech decking.
Internally there is under floor heating, slate look laminate flooring, a built in, modern white gloss cupboards. The internal wall as the timber detail of the external wall.
We have a few dens being built in and around Edinburgh over the next few months so getting all the planning applications and building warrants submitted so that the customers are ready with their new den for the springtime.
This seemed like a good time to get ready to launch our new products in the New Year.
The Den is pick up only – you will need a crane to transport it but we have the design for the structural brace that will assist in the move. We will assist in every part of the move to make it as simple a transaction as possible, but at an RPR of 21,000, this is still very much a bargain.
We are looking at offers of 14K but this is negotiable for a quick sale.”
This is too good an opportunity to miss and this garden room would make a fine addition to any garden.

Those Garden Rooms launched a new range of contemporary garden rooms at last week’s Grand Designs Live exhibition in Birmingham.
The new ‘Aspect’ range incorporates a stunning range of oversized bi-folding aluminium doors from Greenways Contemporary to maximise on as much glass as possible, as Those Garden Rooms’ Barry Chatham explains:
We have been able to ensure the doors fit so that they are tight up against the floor and the ceiling, giving a stunningly open feeling to the world.”
For more information on the new Aspect garden room visit the Those Garden Rooms website.
Atelier the creators of stunning contemporary garden rooms have launched a new website www.atelierzone.com . Atelier’s new website includes computer generated drawings of each of the five modules, prices and specification, technical information, details on special offers and finance options available.
Garden rooms come in two main categories, traditional or contemporary design, which you choose is entirely dependent on taste.
Traditional style garden rooms have pitched gable, or hipped roofs and details like verandas with balustrade. Traditional garden rooms often have wooden casement windows and French doors.
Contemporary garden rooms on the other hand have much crisper lines and single pitch or flat roofs. Contemporary garden rooms have large expanses of glass and often walls of folding doors, which fold back to create a flowing indoor outdoor space. Doors and windows are often made of aluminium or UPVC which continues the modern feel.
Whilst traditional garden rooms have roof coverings like cedar shingles or clay tiles contemporary garden rooms have modern roof coverings like EPDM rubber and sedum roofs.
When it comes to external cladding a contemporary garden room is often finished with cedar tongue and groove cladding which starts off a reddish brown but with time weathers to a silver grey colour. Traditional garden rooms on the other hand are often finished with shiplap or tapered weatherboard and are often painted.
When you go inside the garden room, contemporary rooms are normally finished with plasterboard and a skim of plaster this gives a crisp finish and the feel of a room in the house. Traditional designs can also have plastered interiors although some companies line their rooms with wood panelling either in the form of vertical tongue and groove boards which once painted gives a soft shaker style finish or plywood lining which can also be painted.
Whether your taste is the traditional or contemporary design a garden room is a versatile addition to your home.
