How long will it take to complete the garden room?

All garden rooms are completed within 2 weeks.

Will we need planning permission?

All garden rooms are built in accordance with guidelines laid out by the government. We will notify you in the survey meeting if there are any issues. No permissions are required if:
(1) The structure is below 2.5m high and no bigger than 15 sqm.
(2) No bigger than 30 sqm within 1 m of the boundary. Full details of the restrictions are on the requirements page or can be found on

What is the payment structure?

A 2% deposit is taken on confirmation of the size and specification of the garden room.

A further 48% is taken after the first week of construction with the remaining 50% payable on completion.

Who will install the building?

Herts Garden Rooms only use our in-house team of tradespeople, ensuring the highest quality service.

Will you need access to our property?

We will need access to a power point for the duration of the build, otherwise access is only required to connect the electrical supply. We use a portaloo service to minimise disruption.

What happens with any building waste?

All waste products are removed to an off-site skip.

Will our lawn be damaged during the construction process?

We lay ply sheeting on top of the surrounding area and take care to try and ensure the surface is not damaged during the build.

How can we get a bespoke garden room?

We will assess your needs during our initial survey visit. We will then design a bespoke cad layout of your individual garden room for your approval.

Can we have a garden room built in the winter?

We offer construction dates throughout the year.
