Bespoke garden buildings

The GardenLife bespoke timber building design service

Request a quote for the full bespoke design serviceDespite our extensive variety of timber building designs, GardenLife accept there are instances when only a truly bespoke garden building will fit the bill (such as the examples in the slideshow below). We are therefore happy to plan and build timber buildings using bespoke designs, and we can provide a free no-obligation quote for individual requirements; just check the details below.

Bespoke garden building design service

Request a quote for the full bespoke design serviceTo provide you with a free no-obligation quote for a custom timber building design we need a rough floor plan detailing the size of the required structure. We also require a specification outlining the number of rooms and an indication of the number of windows and doors in each wall. The more information that can be provided the more accurate the quote will be, and you should consider the following before you get in touch with your requirements:

  • The log thickness on bespoke designs must be 44mm or greater
  • Wall thickness can be offered in the following dimensions ; 44mm, 70mm, 88mm, 114mm or 134mm. When log thicknesses is 88mm or higher we use laminated timber for added strength and structural integrity
  • The floor area of the proposed garden building must be greater than 12 sqm
  • The building must be square or rectangular in shape - at the moment we are unable to offer a bespoke service on corner or octagonal type buildings
  • For buildings that will need to go through UK building regulations we would need specific requirements detailed by a UK based architect or structural engineer. We are able to provide basic architectural drawings but structural requirements for snow/wind loads etc must be provided by a professional engineer to be appointed by the client
  • All doors and windows must be double glazed with the choice of either our "summer house" quality or "living house" quality.

All our standard designs are produced in batches; this allows us to offer the great value prices detailed on our site. By nature a bespoke design requires more attention and price-wise they are more expensive on a cost per square meter basis. In some cases it can be cheaper to adapt a standard cabin by purchasing extra doors and windows or internal walls. In these instances we would of course be happy to fit modifications to standard designs on site.

We have manufactured many bespoke designs both large and small from garden rooms to three and four bedroom lodges and would be very interested to quote for any customer requirements. Please don't hesitate to call if you would like to discuss any potential projects.
