Garden Buildings and Their Benefits

Garden buildings are a great way to create additional living and leisure areas when any kind of expansion to the main residence is not practical. They offer year-round, fully insulated comfort and will add value to your home.

If you’re looking to boost your home, read on as we bring you some great ideas for your garden building and the benefits that come with constructing one.


Just for fun…

Build a special place for your kids to play with a dedicated fort, playhouse, or tree house. Your child will love having their own area of the garden and you can get as imaginative with the design as you’d like!

Garden office/workshop

Whatever your vocation, you can work from the comfort of your own home with a garden office or workshop. A dedicated workspace will save you money on rent, insurance and commuting costs, whilst ensuring your home doesn’t get cluttered with any tools of the trade.


Although we might not get much sun in the North West, summerhouses are still as popular as ever. Serving your home as a relaxing outdoor retreat, summerhouses can now be fitted with electrics, double glazing and insulation, meaning that even if the sun isn’t shining you can enjoy your home from home all year round.

Living space

If expansion to your main residence is not feasible, garden rooms are a great way to add additional living space to your home. Whether you’re looking for an annexe to accommodate a relative, en suite facilities, or a utility room, garden rooms are a great way to capitalise on every inch of your house.


Is there anywhere better to workout than the privacy of your own garden? If you like the idea of getting fit but want to avoid crowded health clubs, hefty fees, and travel costs then a garden gym could really be something to consider.


Garden buildings have so many advantages you may start to wonder how you ever managed without one. Not only do they provide your home with an extra function you may also benefit from:

  • Extra storage space
  • Increased value to your home
  • Fast installation
  • Cost savings
  • Added convenience
  • Wow factor
  • A place to get away from daily life
  • All this, plus with garden buildings there is rarely need for planning permission!
