You will see the term ‘turnkey project’ listed on many garden room suppliers websites, but what does this mean?
Well, when you buy a turnkey garden room your supplier handles everything, and all you have to do is turn the key in the door and move into your new room.
Turnkey garden room projects often cost a little more than other garden rooms, but you are paying for the peace of mind that everything is being handled for you and that you are dealing with one firm throughout the build, and pay one fixed price, so there are no hidden costs.
Turnkey garden room projects typically include:
- Handling of any Planning Permission application
- Site clearance and preparation
- Installation of foundation system
- Installation of the garden room
- Internal decoration of the room
- Connection of the electrics to the mains supply
When looking at turnkey projects ask the supplier what they include in their package. We have seen the term turnkey used on projects that include everything on the list above bar the electrical connection to the mains supply. This isn’t a difficult thing to arrange once your garden room is built, but it is a significant cost, so ensure you know where you stand.
