Garden Buildings

For working from home, guest accommodation, hobbies room, play room, sanctuary…. whatever you wish to call them these bespoke buildings are a useful addition to any garden.

As all our buildings are handmade to order we can help you with a design to suit your garden and your budget. They can be any size or design stained to blend in to their natural surroundings or painted, to a colour of your choice, to make them into an attractive garden feature. We recommend Sadolin Superdec paint for all our designs.

With prices starting at around £4,000 garden buildings make an economic alternative to building an extension and, in most costs, planning permission is not required.

All timber is FSC sourced and pressure treated for durability. We offer a choice of roofing, from felt to cedar tiles as well as sedum/green roofing. All the windows are glass and double glazed.

As well as Offices and Studios we are also able to design and construct Boat Houses, Gyms, Potting Sheds, Mini Barns for Tractor and Garden Machinery storage and heavy duty Garden Sheds. We are also in the process of designing a Mini Shed to conceal oil and gas tanks in the garden (please contact us for further information).

As well as constructing more traditional style garden studios and offices we also offer stilted buildings which can be enlarged to provide novel accommodation for visitors as well as being a fun escape for children and teenagers! Our buildings can be fully insulated and heated for use all year round.

We are always planning new structures and timber designs for the garden to delight and excite our customers. If you have a particular construction in mind, we'd be delighted to help you bring your building to life.

To enable us to offer the same quality of garden office/studio at a more affordable price we are now able to offer our customers the option of self assembly flat pack buildings. You can have any style or size you wish and each kit will be accompanied with clear instructions. These buildings are supplied to 1st fix with your choice of roofing. Please note we will always be only a phone call away should you require any additional help installing your building!

At present we are only able to install our larger buildings up to 2nd fix to customers in the following counties - Dorset, Devon, Cornwall, Somerset, Surrey, Hampshire, Gloucestershire, Wiltshire, Oxfordshire, Berkshire, Sussex and London, but we can erect them nationally to the stage of 1st fix.

Planning permission regulations were revised in October 2008.

This now means that as long as you comply with a basic set of rules, planning permission is not normally required, even if you live in a conservation area. You can read through the information via the following link If you would like us to process a planning application on your behalf we are now able to offer this service subject to your postcode.  Please call us a for advice on 01798 869919.

"Thank you so much for the garden building which you erected this week.  We are very pleased with the design and build quality.  Having done our research before buying from GD Timber Designs, we know it represents good value.  Thanks also for the way you dealt with us - you delivered exactly what you promised and on time.  Thank you also for the chicken house which we hope will have occupants next week.  We look forward to dealing with you again when we have finalised plans for a summerhouse."  Sophie & Chris Polden, West Sussex
