This 3.36m x 3.36m garden room was built by Vivid Green for an episode of Love Your Home & Garden. The room needed to have easy, level access for a wheelchair so the whole family can enjoy it.
Vivid Green built a contemporary 3.36m x 3.36m garden room for Alan Titchmarsh’s Love Your Garden. You can by the same spec building for the special price of £16,999 inc VAT.
Vivid Green created this family chillout room as part of a wider garden transformation. The family wanted to create a room with an inside-outside feel. Two sets of bi-fold doors have been used to create a corner of glazing that emphasises this connection.
This 8m x 8m x 4m L-shaped garden room by Vivid Green is been designed to create an entertaining space for the family. The building also incorporates a large secret storage room.
Vivid Green was one of the first firms we featured on The Garden Room Guide when we launched back in 2009. They have just launched a new website showcasing their contemporary designs.

Often the best recommendation for a product is from people who have brought it, here are a selection of testimonials from customers who have brought garden rooms from Vivid Green. See the slideshow below for photos.
“Vivid Green have provided me with a flexible and functional garden office, which has greatly enhanced my ability to work from home successfully. The team were professional, adaptable and a joy to work with.” Mr M, Harpenden
“The workshop is very beautiful and I look longingly at it whenever I’m in the kitchen. Even just as it is, whenever I’m in it I feel an exciting sense of space and light. Somehow it makes me feel very positive and excited and I hope in the future it will encourage creativity. When it’s a sunny day, looking through the doors you see the light streaming in. I think it’s all helped by knowing very selfishly it’s my space! You’ll be pleased to know that a friend came round yesterday and when she saw it she stopped mid sentence to exclaim how beautiful it is. When I’d described it, she really hadn’t imagined it to be so good looking.” Mrs D, Hanwell
“The product is excellent and the company providing it are flexible about the design. The product was erected quickly and without fuss and there was no snagging list at the end. Most satisfactory and so very superior to the cheap and nasty ordinary “shed”. This is not a shed but a house in the garden.” Mr C, Carshalton
“A very worthwhile installation despite the initial high outlay. It’s a very versatile room that can be used all year round thanks to excellent insulation and low-cost underfloor heating, and it keeps us all sane as our son does his drumming practice away from the main house!
I am also impressed by the heating/insulation, it’s very efficient. The nerd in me did a little test with a temp/humidity recording gauge, and even with the heating switched off completely the inside temperature dropped by only 2 deg C overnight, compared to 10 deg C outside.” Mr G, Exeter
“I am very pleased with my Vivid Green office. It is roomy, light, airy, stylish and the underfloor heating ensures consistent temperature control. From the original quotation through to completion, the Vivid Green team was a delight to deal with.” Mr W, Oxford

Vivid Green designs modern garden buildings with particular attention given to their environmental impact, and as such buildings are designed to maximise solar gain, have high levels of thermal insulation and minimise any waste.[caption id="attachment_277" align="alignleft" width="110" caption="The Winterhouse by Vivid Green"][/caption]
Vivid Green offer two standard designs The Penthouse and The Winterhouse but also offer a bespoke design service which allows the customer to tailor their garden building to their needs and tastes, for instance you may have a difficult site or want a building with more than one use such as a workshop with separate store area.
The garden buildings offered by Vivid Green are built with SIP’s – structural insulated panels which is a very efficient form of building both thermally speaking and at the speed they can be put together – which is a saving in embodied energy, typically garden buildings are installed in less than eight days on site.[caption id="attachment_278" align="alignright" width="110" caption="Quality Windows and Cladding"][/caption]
On top of the SIP’s framework Vivid Green’s buildings are well specified with high quality windows and doors with triple point locks and glazed with performance double glazed units. There is a wide choice of external cladding such as cedar, larch or Douglas fir which are all fitted with quality stainless steel fittings.
Vivid Green’s garden buildings are suitable for year round use and are fitted with thermostatically controlled under floor heating which they estimate costs less than 50p a day to run during the winter, this type of heating is ideal as it allows you to place furniture where you want rather than make allowances for wall mounted heaters.
The Penthouse garden building starts at £7,790 plus VAT for a 4.25m2 footprint, for more information visit Vivid Green at www.vividgreen.co.uk/
