The home of affordable, high quality garden rooms and garden offices by craftsmen who care.
All of our garden buildings are flat roofed and smaller than building regulation sizes. It needs to be 2m within your boundary, and 5m from your house for fire regulations. Usually built under 2.5m high - check with council to confirm permitted development or any other rights or restrictions.
Our cabins are made from high quality wood (mostly sustainable Cedar), with at least 100mm of insulation in the walls and roof, and are double glazed to a high standard. The flat roof gives maximum height and strength.
We only build a limited number of bespoke cabins each year. All of our garden studios and buildings can be adapted to fit your exact requirements, and prices include installation and delivery!
Our garden offices are the ideal solution for working from home. Away from the distractions of a busy office environment and the clutter from everyday life around the home, they can be tailor made to suit your garden and your needs. A garden office from Vista Buildings is a cost effective way to boost your productivity and improve your work live balance.
If you are looking for a den / man cave to escape the kids, or a playroom for the kids to escape from you, or even a spare bedroom for in-laws a garden room is a great solution. They come fully insulated with A* double glazing, can be soundproofed, fully plumbed in for kitchens and en-suites and can even have sky lights. Why not create yourself a garden retreat from as little as £5,200.
Finding space for your home gym can be tricky, but if you get it right you can create a really motivating environment that you will want to work out in. With beautiful views, airy and light spaces and a commute just outside your back door, sweaty expensive gym memberships will become a thing of the past!
Andrew Best of STuDS has sent through details of a gym building they have recently created in the grounds of Bath Lodge Castle Hotel. Andrew and his team are specialist timber frame designers and were asked to create a contemporary design to contrast with the historic castle. The mono pitched building was orientated so the glazing faces south to harness the natural light and warmth from the sun – this is a good tip for anyone looking to build a garden room whether it be a gym like this or a garden office.
I just want to place on record how delighted Julia and I are at the completion of our 'Alpine Retreat' here in Harrow after just seven weeks! You have made my original concept come true in every sense. It was a pleasure to watch you at work, an improvising artist in wooden medium. Nothing was too much trouble for you. Many, many thanks and sincere appreciation for all your efforts.
Roger is a true craftsmen, he took our bespoke concept for a garden office and turned it into the most beautiful garden office where I can sit and work away from the distractions of the house. The building was constructed considerably faster than we expected and was finished to a standard far beyond our expectations. Working with Roger was an absolute pleasure, his garden studios are excellent value and excellent quality. I am so glad that we didn't go for an imported flat pack!
I wanted a studio where I can paint in peace and with good light but also a place to sit alone or with friends and that is exactly what Roger has created. The building was constructed very quickly to a very high standard. It was a pleasure to work with Roger. My site was a little awkward and he adapted the design to make it work in the space. I looked at many different options and am glad that I chose a local craftsman. Roger did everything from preparing the site to recommending a good electrician, and included a storage are for art materials. All I had to do was paint the inside.
Roger made a beautiful garden office for me with the area of about 30 sqm which is made from natural wood.I'm quite happy of his job & more importantly he has a very good character & friendly behaviour.This natural shed together with Roger's positive philosophical beliefs will definitely brings positive energy to every ones house.
We have a British Timbermasters work studio in our garden and we are very happy with it. Contrary to most log cabins available on catalogue, Roger helped us design a space that fitted exactly our requirements. Our contemporary studio has a vast glazed surface – including two double-glazed skylights – that makes this space airy and a joy to work in. Not to mention the fact it really looks great. As it is fairly recent, we have not been through a winter yet, but in-built insulation should be more than sufficient to keep us warm. We find this is a superior alternative to your box-standard catalogue offering: the price of log cabins may look cheap, but when you factor in all the indispensable extras (ground posts, insulation, electric network, finishes, etc), you probably end up paying more than what you’d spend for a bespoke cabin created by Roger and his team. So at this price point, we found that British Timbermasters offers excellent value for the money.
Roger from British Timbermasters built my garden room. The space was limited in width so Roger custom made it to fit the space perfectly. I was surprised how quick it was and Roger was always polite and punctual. I am very happy with the finished result
10/10 - if there was a scale provided then this is what my recommendation would be for Roger Taylor having provided are garden office. Roger said it would be complete by a specific time and it was to an exacting quality. The build was fast, considerate and the result exceeded expectation. The build included consultation, delivery, dry lining and insulation, all electrical fittings inside and out and waterproofing. All we needed to do was paint it to our own requirements and pay £120 to have it connected to the house mains. If, like us, you are looking to move from renting an office and paying £600+ a month to rent then choose this company. We paid it off it 12 months and we are now rent free with a beautiful addition to our garden where 4 of us work very comfortably. We are a year on and still as happy - it will be good when the business stops as we already have plans to it in to something else. We will be using Roger again to build a posh shed and would continue to highly recommend him. Outstanding!
We have had our log cabin for a number of years now and have been delighted with it. Roger took the time to design exactly the sort of cabin we needed and it was built just to this specification; our cabin has a small indoor pool inside it and having been using it at least 4 times per week over the past few years I can say the cabin has been an excellent addition to our home and garden.
Roger enthusiastically helped me design my club house and gave some good practical hints. The building was delivered on time and the boys soon got on with it to have it up and functional by the agreed date. It is heavily used but still looks as good as the day it was completed, we always get great feedback from customers staying on site.
