A garden office buyer recently emailed us to ask if a garden office can be attached to the house like an extension. This is a question we have been asked a few times over the years. The answer is a simple yes they can, but not all garden office suppliers offer this service.
Garden office designers like Swift Garden Rooms will happily work with you to create a garden office that is attached to your house. They will design a building especially for you, in keeping with the layout and style of your house.
A garden office extension can include all the features of a standalone garden office such as high levels of insulation and large expanses of glazing, but with the convenience of flowing off from a room in your house.
With the change in Permitted Development rules relating to extensions a couple of years ago, you now have a lot of flexibility in the size of extension you can add to your house without having to apply for Planning Permission. Designers from specialist firms like Swift Garden Rooms will advise you on your options when you book a free site visit.
A garden office extension is a very quick way of extending your home. Once you have finalised your design and layout, the building will be manufactured off-site. All the parts will then be delivered to your site for a streamlined building process which can take a couple of weeks from start to finish. Because the bulk of the work goes on outside your house, there is very little disruption to family life as the build progresses.
Working with a firm like Swift Garden Rooms is a fully project managed process. They will organise all the different trades and delivery of the materials, all you have to do is to sit back and watch your new room take shape.
