Being a truly bespoke company, we have a wide range of internal finishes too
Plasterboards are fixed to the walls and ceilings and skimmed to give a luxury and homely feel. Recessed electrical sockets are fitted as standard.
Skirting boards are provided in either oak or white finish. Due to the nature of plastering, the completion of your garden room with this option will be several weeks longer to allow for drying time.

Window & Doors
All doors and windows are fitted as standard with hard coated, low-e Pilkington K Optiwhite ‘extra clear’ double-glazing, which is argon filled and fitted with a Planitherm layer and Swisspacer providing superior insulation and energy efficiency.

We have developed our own unique, tried and tested, concrete pile foundation system to ensure your garden room is perfectly level. What’s more, the price of our foundation system is included in the standard price of your garden room. Our concrete mini pile system is significantly more environmentally friendly than a solid concrete base, but remains just as effective. We can use our concrete mini pile system on sites with a surface undulation of up to 200mm, which means less prior groundworks and upheaval for most customers.
Depending on use and soil we also use galvanised ground screws or an insulated concrete raft.
