How Much Does a Garden Building Cost?

Garden buildings add value to your home and provide an extra living space that you can tailor for your own needs. They are a great alternative to a full-blown extension, and can range from small summerhouses to large garden offices, playhouses and more. Typically, garden rooms cost between PS8,000 and PS150,000 depending on the size and features you choose. Some companies specialise in particular types of garden building, while others build bespoke models to your own design.

The biggest factors in the price of a room are the materials used and the design features you select. For example, some companies use more expensive cladding and premium grade insulation to create an energy efficient building. This makes a difference to the price of a building, and may influence your choice of supplier.

Another major factor is how the building will be installed on-site. Most companies offer a professional installation service, and this will usually add to the overall cost of your garden room. Some companies also charge an additional fee to supply and install electrics. This is especially important if you plan to use your garden room as a home office, and will require you to engage a certified electrician to connect an armoured cable from the mains to the building.

Many manufacturers will provide a detailed specification and breakdown of costs for their garden rooms, which should make it easy to compare quotes and decide which company is best suited to your project. Some companies will even provide a 3D model of your building, so you can see how it will look once completed.

Most companies deliver and assemble their garden rooms nationwide. The majority of delivery charges are calculated by the distance travelled, and can be quite high. A typical charge is PS6 per mile, and it’s important to factor this into your total costs when comparing prices.
