A few weeks after launching The Garden Room Guide in October 2009, the first garden room company we wrote about was Booths Garden Studios. We have gone on to write nearly 100 articles about their buildings.
Today, Booths Garden Studios are one of the leading names in garden room industry, having built thousands of garden rooms over the last decade. They stand out in the market as each building is designed to be maintenance free for 25 years. Twenty-five years = Quarter Century is where the QC in their range names comes from.
To ensure the maintenance-free status, the Booths team have chosen a palette of tried and tested materials for the exterior of their buildings. The walls are finished in plasti-coated leatherette embossed steel panels which don't require painting to maintain their appearance. This is mixed with uPVC doors and windows which require nothing more than a soapy sponge to stay looking good. The roof is finished in EPDM, which is a highly durable rubber membrane which is fitted in one sheet for optimum performance.
From small garden rooms to self-contained annexes
There is a Booths Garden Studio for every garden and intended use. There are designs for small gardens right through to multi-room living annexes. Interestingly, Booths Garden Studios offer both planning friendly, living annexes that can be built under the Caravan Act.

Cost effective and fully featured designs
Alongside their high spec QC6 which offers lots of design features to choose from, flexibility in size and layout, Booths Garden Studios also offer the QCB range. The QCB mixes popular features in standard size buildings at a great price point.
It's been interesting watching the Booths range of garden room evolve over the last decade. The team are constantly honing the specification of the QC range. When we first featured them in 2009 we were writing about the QC2, today they are producing the QC6 specification, and knowing the Booths team, you can bet the QC7 is on the drawing board!
Popular design features
A signature design feature of a Booths Garden Studios is the floor to ceiling glazing. This offers a great connection between the room and the garden beyond. You get to choose the combination of windows and doors that works for you, with the QC6 range. The QCB range features a fully glazed front wall made from a mix of door and long windows.
