Our garden offices are fully insulated using superior insulation products from manufacturers including Isover, Celotex, Knauf and Kingspan (The main market leaders).

Concrete & Steel Foundations
You do not need to provide a concrete base for our garden offices.
To save you the expense and inconvenience, we use specially designed, concrete pile foundations combined with heavy duty galvanised steel legs and plates. The steel legs can be adjusted which means we can install our garden offices onto either flat or slightly uneven surfaces.
Your garden office will be raised off the ground to allow a vented space underneath. This ensures that the structure will not be affected by rising damp.
