Garden OfficeIf you are looking for a great way to work from home, a garden office from Cabin Master makes a lot of good economic sense. Garden Offices are growing in popularity, and with good reason. People want to have more usable space on their property and also remove commute times from their already busy lives. Factor in what you will save on rent and rates with your office in town and you will have paid off your garden office studio in no time at all. At Cabin Master, we build solid garden offices that will last for decades with little maintenance required.
A Business Case
The cost of our garden offices depends upon size, style and finish. Below are some of the pros and cons of having an office in your garden as opposed to an office in your house (bedroom) or local town.
- Similar cost to renting an office.
- No more rent after year 2.
- Be more professional with your clients.
- Keep work and family life separate.
- Add value to your home.
- Offers tax advantages.
We only use FSC produced Western Red Cedar or slow grown PEFC/FSC Scandinavian Redwood exterior cladding over BBA certified breathable membrane to ensure all our buildings meet our strict quality control standards. The walls are constructed from Structural (C16) timber and are fully insulated with KingspanTM thermal insulation boards (or similar).
The interior walls are lined with FSC NeatmatchTM Moisture Resistant MDF interior wall board ready for decoration and our roof system is finished with Firestone EPDM single piece rubber membrane roof covering complete with purpose made verges and gutter trims finished in black. Black uPVC guttering and downpipes are provided as required.
Advising you at every step
On our initial phone call we will establish the size and style of building that you are looking for so a CAD drawing can be created. The next step is to come and survey your site and give you an idea of what you will need to stand the building on, we can advise you on different types of foundations and bases and give an idea of the sort of costs involved. Some people want to provide their own base and some want us to provide the base for them. For planning we have an Architect (Ian Nelson) who can give you information regarding planning permission as well as deal with your local council if you want him to. In most cases our Garden Rooms come within permitted development and will not require permission.
Every component we use in our Cabin Master garden rooms is guaranteed for quality and durability. Each building comes with a 10-year workmanship and labour guarantee, plus the guarantees of each individual component or building material included. Below are some typical examples:
- 10 year guarantee on building materials.
- 1 year metalwork guarantee (including hinges, handles and ironmongery).
- 5 to 20 year guarantee on UPVc doors.
- 10 year guarantee on window frames.
- 5 year guarantee on glass window units.
- 10 year guarantee for Pilkington Conservatory Roof Glass.
- 18 month guarantee for polycarbonate roof panes.
To build our garden rooms we make use of only the best raw materials and building components, and fully qualified local contractors.
- Timber: Forest Stewardship Council Approved timber suppliers.
- Roofing: For flat roofs we use high performance EPDM rubber roofing. For sloping roofs we use Kerbit SBS roofing shingles.
- Doors & Windows: Double glazed, energy efficient uPVC doors and windows for peak energy efficiency.
- Insulation: High quality silver-backed foam insulation from Celotex, Kingspan, Extratherm or similar.
- Finishing: FSC approved MDF interior boards with Neatmatch damp resistant coating.
Our design team are on hand to turn your vision into a reality. Your ideas and sketches are transformed into a CAD Drawing which is then perfected until you are 100% happy. The design is then sent to our factory where the cabin is created.
