Recent Build Highlights

It’s been a while since we posted news of recent Gembuild garden office projects here so we thought we’d highlight just a few for you now.

Banbury, Oxfordshire, garden studio:

Extended Colgate garden office/studio in Banbury OxfordshireFirst up is one which is hot off the press (a February 2014 build) from the market town of Banbury, Oxfordshire. Here we built what we call an ‘extended Colgate’ (internal dimensions 3.6m x 4.8m) with a ‘Sussex Barn’ real slate roof and beautiful timber cladding in larch. This garden studio included extra windows and french doors with double-glazing throughout (thank goodness – it was windy and raining for most of the build!). These garden rooms also feature, as standard, power points, telephone point, lighting (various inside plus a security light outside), carpet tiles and Venetian blinds. Further details of our ‘Colgate’ range of garden offices, rooms and studios is available here and prices start, at time of writing, at £7535 + VAT (that’s for the non-extended 2.4m x 3.6m version).

Burgess Hill, West Sussex, garden office/studio:

Extended Colgate 25 garden office or studio building in Burgess Hill, West SussexSimilar to the above, we also recently completed an ‘extended Colgate 25’, this time being a garden room which has a lower (2.5m) roof height to fit in with planning regulations i.e. when sited within 2m of a boundary fence – see our Planning Permission Guide for more information regarding roof and eaves height and how it affects Planning Permission. We’ve also been busy building a similar garden office/studio in Tamworth, which included air conditioning too, but came with a different exterior finish.

Bognor Regis garden music studio, West Sussex.

Faygate 25 music/recording studio in a Bognor Regis garden, West SussexBack in November, we built this one in Bognor Regis, West Sussex. This is one of our ‘Faygate 25′ garden buildings (again the ’25’ denotes a 2.5m height so it’s allowed to be situated within 2m of the property boundary). In this instance, the customer asked us to build in a sound booth because the garden studio is going to be used as a music room and sound recording studio – we do these for singers and musicians quite often. The Faygate garden room has internal dimensions of 2.4m x 3.6m as standard (although this can be extended if required), and prices start at £7,235 + VAT at time of writing. Find out more here.
