Garden Office POD, Dorset. Mr P contacted Garden Retreat mid 2018 he had recently left his job as a Mortgage adviser and decided he wanted to start up his own business.  To do this Mr P wanted to separate his home and work life by having a dedicated work area to enable him to focus on his new venture. The initial specification was to have a modern contemporary building with plenty of light but at the same time have the building clad in Cedar which not only looks and smells beautiful but also has an exceptionally long service life.

This contemporary garden building is constructed using an external cedar clad and bitumen paper to ensure any damp is kept out of the building.  The walls are constructed using a 75mm x 38mm timber frame, 50mm polystyrene and a 12mm grooved ply inner lining to finish the walls. The total thickness of the walls is 100mm which lends itself to all year round use.  The floor is manufactured using heavy duty bearers, 75mm Celotex and a 12mm ply floor which can either be carpeted or a vinyl floor can be installed for a hard wearing and an easily clean option. We can install a laminated floor if required, please contact us for further details

As this Garden Office was for business purposes Mr P took advantage of our Financing and Funding Option which removed the need for the initial capital expenditure.



Here is the building erected and checked before it was installed at the Customers address.

The roof is insulated and comes with an inner ply, metal Rolaclad roof covering and internal spot lights.  Also within the electrics pack there is consumer unit, 3 double sockets and a switch. We also install sockets with built in USB charging points which is very useful and this building also has external spots to light up the porch area.

This particular model was supplied with one set of 2300mm wide black uPVC multi-lock patio doors and a  black uPVC picture window which provides a modern look and lots of light. The building is designed to be modular so during the ordering process you have the opportunity to choose where you want the windows and doors to be and you can add more windows of various sizes as required.

If you are interested in this design or would like something similar please do not hesitate to contact us for a quotation?
