The Winchester Traditional range of garden offices and garden rooms are based on a modular design in sections of 1200mm and 600mm by 2134mm high. There are a range of standard buildings sizes which have a number of windows and doors and you can decide where you want to position them during the ordering process.

The standard Traditional Garden Office is supplied with one uPVC half double glazed door and two uPVC cottage style casement windows, further windows can be added if required and are listed in the ‘Additional Options’ section below.

The Traditional Garden Office is manufactured with a pitched roof and comes with either slate grey or red/brown felt tiles. The ridge height is around 2.8m depending on the size of the building. You can reduce the ridge height to 2.5m to stay within planning rules if required. In addition to this the building comes with 3 double sockets, spot lights, a consumer unit and switch. There are also a number of additional electrical options to add to the building if required.

If the standard sizes are not suitable we can manufacture the offices to suit the size you require. If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact us.

The Traditional Garden Offices or Garden Rooms are constructed using 1 1/2″ x 3″ (38mm x 75mm) selected framing. The framework is built and clad with 16mm nominal x 125mm tanalised shiplap cladding on the exterior, providing you with a 25 year rot resistant finish.

The interior is lined with 12mm brush grooved plywood, to provide a high quality and attractive finish, with cavity filled 50mm polystyrene insulation. Skirting and appropriate moldings are also fitted to provide a professional finish.

The floor has a 12mm plywood finish, and sits onto 1 1/2″ x 3″ (38mm x 75mm) tanalised floor joists with 75mm Celotex insulation underneath the plywood. A second level of tanalised bearers lifts the floor away from the concrete base to provide the necessary air flow beneath the building.

Pitched Roof
The pitched roof version is specially designed to provide maximum head room, with a clear span between each gable end wall. The inside of the roof is lined with 9mm plywood, and the outside of the roof has 12mm sterling board and 50mm polystyrene insulation fills the cavity.

Felt tiles are also fitted to the pitched roof of the office on top of an underlay felt to provide both a long lifespan and an attractive finish. The felt tiles are available in either Red/Brown (Clay effect) or Slate Grey.

The pitched roof ridge height, depending on the building size, is between 2.8m and 3.2m high as an average height. On smaller buildings we can drop the ridge height down to accommodate a 2.5m maximum height which will satisfy UK planning rules. If you need further advice on planning please call us for advice, or click here planning portal.

Guttering and down pipes are supplied and fitted as standard to the front & back of the pitched roof. Please note the roof overhangs the walls of the buildings by 6″ (150mm) at the gable ends, and 1′ (300mm) to the front and the back – this is in addition to the size of the building. We can however adjust the overhang sizes in the event of space restrictions.

The mono roof design has guttering to the rear only, or to just one side depending on the slope of the roof.

The guttering and down pipes are supplied in either black or brown.

The lights, sockets, and wiring are all in place ready to be connected by a qualified electrician. Standard offices are complete with a consumer unit (with breakers), a light switch, lights (with bulbs & transformers), and sockets, although more can be purchased to suit your requirements.

Please note that all sockets and lights will need a qualified electrician to connect the wiring at both the consumer unit end, and the socket / light end to comply with the current regulations. In addition to this your electrician will also need to connect the electric feed from the external power source to your office.

All our buildings included delivery and installation although please contact us for delivery prices if you are located in Cornwall or Scotland.

All our buildings are installed buy our fully trained crews who have many years of experience.

Our installation crews will require clear access free from obstacles, trees, vegetation, overhead cables from the delivery vehicle to the site where the building will be erected.

They will also require 400mm clearance around the building to allow your building to be erected safely with clearance suitable for ladders and steps. If there is less than 400mm please contact us to discuss the options.

Sections can be as large as 3.0m x 2.4m hence we will need to know of any obstacles, bends or height restrictions before manufacture takes place.

Delivery & installation takes place on the same day via a 7.5 tonnes lorry – 28 feet long x 8ft wide.

A majority of buildings are installed within a single day, however larger garden offices, triple garages and commercial units will require more days on site. We will indicate the estimated assembly time at the time of order.

We will require a postcode for the site address and sufficient parking on the day of delivery to allow the installation crew to park as close to the site as possible.

Should your site be further than 30m from the parking location, please contact us prior to manufacture to ensure that we can deliver and install safely.

Please note that on some occasions we can take sections of buildings through the house but there is a surcharge to do so as the sections need to be made smaller and we require more staff on site to carry the sections through the house.

If you have any questions or queries concerning delivery and installation please do not hesitate to contact us.
