Building an insulated garden offices is a fantastic way of adding space to a home for far less than it would cost to extend a home in the traditional way. A great feature of garden officess are that once they have been designed and finalised, they can be built for a fixed price, and so there are no concerns about the possibility of growing building costs.

Sustainable Garden Rooms

Another great feature of garden rooms is that they are sustainable. The environment is considered at every stage. For example, during construction resources are used as efficiently as possible, and the materials used are as environmentally responsible as possible. In fact, almost everything about garden rooms is environmentally friendly as they are built using sustainable materials and feature energy efficient insulation. What is more, the quality craftsmanship and materials that are used to create garden rooms ensures that not only do they look great, but that they will last for many years. As a result, garden rooms are a great addition to any home.

Garden Room Flexibility

Garden Room Flexibility

The flexibility of garden room design is a huge draw for many. Garden rooms can literally be whatever an individual wants them to be, because almost anything is possible with a garden room. For example, garden rooms can be used as home offices for those who would lack the space to work from home otherwise- a great way to reduce an individual’s carbon footprint by completely eliminating the need for a commute! Other great uses of a garden room include a bespoke home gym, a really interesting guest bedroom, or as an attractive art studio.

Bespoke Garden Rooms

Bespoke Garden Rooms

Executive Garden Rooms specialise in bespoke garden rooms, each room we build is unique to suit your individual requirements, any shape or size (subject to planning) to fit into a corner of your garden. It is important not to overpower a rear garden with a building that is too large, we work closely with each client to ensure the garden room is designed to sympathetically fit into the surroundings and to provide the internal space required. Gardens with limited access to the rear garden ie. terraced properties may require materials to be carried through the property, EGR’s are very experienced in hand digs where the spoil and materials have to be carried through the house.

One of the very first garden rooms that we did back in 2006 was for a lady in Bishops Stortford, she was a mobile hairdresser but was sick of travelling so much for her client base that she’d built up & it was stressful trying to organise her diary to make her appointments as economical for travelling as possible.With kids as well this was getting more & more difficult so we were asked to come out and see them at their lovely home in hope to provide a perfect solution for where her clients could come & have their hair done, and that we did. Design & budget discussed, we came back a few weeks later to build her very own hairdressing salon in the garden, a gorgeous cedar Contemporary Garden Room that eased the pressure from travelling the busy roads & gave her back some family time & quality of life again.

Where to buy Garden Offices

Where to buy Garden Offices

Outdoor Loving Rooms are Manufacturers of Premium Garden Offices, manufactured using sip panels using Polyurethane Foam and OSB 3 Panels.

View our wide range of Garden Offices online and with our partners we can provide a service from concept to completion.

Predominately the sips system is used to build houses, initially in America and Europe since the 1930’s, but is becoming the Architects and contractors preferred method of building here in the UK.

Outdoor Living Rooms have taken this system and engineered it to produce high insulated, structurally efficient buildings and introduced it to many sectors. It enables us to offer the buildings of the future, with cutting edge design, long building life spans and a thermally efficient shell.

We have introduced this system for the next generation of Garden Offices, eliminating condensation and introducing stylish looks, to modular portable commercial buildings which no longer look like steel boxes.

Outdoor Living Rooms are the first SIP manufacturer to offer such a diverse range of products, all of which have been designed and manufactured from our sites in the Ribble Valley and Blackburn, both in Lancashire.

Outdoor Living Rooms set out to create a true Sip Kit, that companies and individuals can construct with ease, and produce buildings with style.

Garden Office

Garden Office

A garden office is an office in a garden. This is usually separate to a house, being used as a dedicated office space by a professional homeworker or by a home-based business. In the UK, planning permission is not normally needed for a garden office if you are only using it as a home study and if it is similar in size and construction to a garden shed. A garden office used as a home study does not need planning permission as long as it is not more than 4 metres tall for a pitched roof, at least 2 metres from the property line and does not cover more than half of the garden area. If you are running a business from your garden office it will need planning permission regardless of its size or position within the garden. This is because working at home, in the garden, can cause a problem for neighbours. The cost will depend upon the facilities and will be between £5,000 and £60,000. Internet and telephone connections may be required and this can perhaps be achieved by use of a wireless network based in the main building.

Lancashire

Lancashire

Lancashire (/ˈlæŋkəʃər/, /ˈlæŋkəʃɪər/ or, locally, [ˈɫaŋkɪʃə(ɻ)];[2] archaically the County Palatine of Lancaster; abbreviated Lancs.) is a county in north west England. Although Lancaster is still the county town, the county’s administrative centre is Preston. The county has a population of 1,449,300 and an area of 1,189 square miles (3,080 km2). People from the county are known as Lancastrians.

Lancashire emerged as a major commercial and industrial region during the Industrial Revolution. Manchester and Liverpool grew into its largest cities, dominating global trade and the birth of modern capitalism. The county contained several mill towns and the collieries of the Lancashire Coalfield. By the 1830s, approximately 85% of all cotton manufactured worldwide was processed in Lancashire.[3] Accrington, Blackburn, Bolton, Burnley, Bury, Chorley, Colne, Darwen, Nelson, Oldham, Preston, Rochdale and Wigan were major cotton mill towns during this time. Blackpool was a centre for tourism for the inhabitants of Lancashire’s mill towns, particularly during wakes week.

The creation of Lancashire Enterprise Zone was announced in 2011. It was launched in April 2012, based at the airfields owned by BAE Systems in Warton and Samlesbury.[34] Warton Aerodrome covers 72 hectares (180 acres) and Samlesbury Aerodrome is 74 hectares.[35] Development is coordinated by Lancashire Enterprise Partnership, Lancashire County Council and BAE Systems.[34] The first businesses to move into the zone did so in March 2015, at Warton.[36]

In March 2015 the government announced a new enterprise zone would be created at Blackpool Airport, using some airport and adjoining land.[37] Operations at the airport will not be affected.[38]
