Bespoke Garden Rooms
are our speciality
The Executive Garden Room approach
- what makes us different?
* We are an established supplier of garden rooms with extensive experience.
* We specialise in bespoke garden rooms, each room we build is unique to suit your individual requirements, it can be any shape or size (subject to planning) for example to fit into a corner of your garden, to ensure it is sympathetic to the surroundings and minimises the loss of garden area.
* Our garden rooms are highly insulated, we investment 8% of the cost of the build on insulation materials, minimising your ongoing running costs. Only PIR Insulation is used in our buildings (no soft mineral).
* Our rooms are built on a concrete base, there is no void under the building eliminating rat and fox nests. The internal finished floor to ceiling height is 2.15m, giving a greater sense of space and a light and airy feel.
* We specialise in garden rooms with bathroom/kitchen facilites, the ground works and trenching to supply all services are included in our price.
* All our buildings are sheathed in 18mm OSB (3) structural board.
* The roof is finished with 3 layers of Delta torch on mineral felt totalling 8mm thick, we believe this is a more tried and tested method than EPDM which is only 1.5mm thick.
* We will clad the building in either Western Red Cedar or Cedral Weatherboard, a painted finish which does not fade with age and has a higher fire rating than cedar and is useful if building within a metre of the boundary.
* Our garden rooms are permanent structures and comply to Schedule 2 of the Building Regulations 2010.
* The average build time is 2-3 weeks.
* We offer a turnkey solution, managing the whole build process and pass you the keys on the handover day.
* Our prices include foundations, heating and electrical connection to the main house - we have no hidden extras
Our garden rooms can be used for a garden office, studio, music room, gym, pool room, playroom, sun room, granny annexe or just a room to relax and enjoy your garden.
Latest Client Feedback :-
I had been researching companies to install a garden room and was ready to commit to another when a friend mentioned Executive Garden Rooms. I went to see her room and was very impressed on how professional it looked.
I liked the idea of a concrete base rather than having a void under the building and also the fact it was plastered internally. They were able to offer a more bespoke service of design to suit my needs. I am so glad I went with EGR.
They have been professional the whole way through the process, from the planning and then the build. Ben was on site punctually every day and Allison would send me the week’s schedule every Sunday. They finished on time and left the site clean and tidy and the room looks magnificent.
They were also on hand to advise me through a situation which arose due to a disgruntled neighbour. At this point I was so happy to be with a professional company who I could trust had built everything to plan and knew how to handle the situation calmly.
Thanks Ben and Alison!

After researching several companies and talking to EGR by phone we decided that they fitted our requirements best, particularly in terms of incorporating an acoustic build.
The work was completed on time, on budget and completely to our specification. The studio is superb and Ben and the team couldn’t have been more helpful while doing the work. Alison was a great help in the office and always responded to emails exceptionally quickly (even once while I was in IKEA buying shelves for the studio!) and gave excellent advice.
I certainly would and already have recommended Executive Garden Rooms to my friends & family.
- H. Brett-Jones, Esher
My father who the room was for, my husband and I felt that Alison and Ben came across as being the most professional of the three companies we approached. They also really listened to what we wanted and were honest about what could be delivered in the budget we had.
My husband and I wanted to provide an extra room at the end of our garden for my father. From the beginning Alison and Ben were honest, reliable and completely professional in their approach to this project. The build went ahead smoothly and we were so impressed with how hard Ben and Paul worked each day. They also kept the site so tidy and returned it to such a good state after the build. My father is just so happy with his accommodation and remarks almost daily how warm it is and how it was built to such a high standard. We would absolutely recommend EGR to anyone who wants some extra space.
- M. Dempsey, London
After a lengthy search online and visits to several suppliers I considered that the design and specification of EGR were superior.
Thank you Ben and Alison. We are delighted with our new garden room and the experience of seeing it being built. A great design with good materials, exceptional workmanship and exceptional value.
As a retired construction industry executive, I am not easily impressed but this was impressive.
If anyone wants to know what good looks like in a construction project then watch Ben build a garden room. No fuss, no waste, no delays, first class workmanship and right first time. I doubt that there is a better building or builder in the UK market.
- E Donald, Dorset
We selected Executive Garden Rooms as our supplier because :-
· The rooms looked great, solid, well insulated and modern looking buildings not a log cabin.
· We could specify dimensions and fittings.
· The speed with which the product could be delivered.
· It was a turnkey solution.
"We are really pleased with our new garden room. The whole process from start to finish only took 3 1/2 weeks which was amazing considering we had services put in for a kitchen, shower and a toilet.
If there was an Olympic category for building, Ben would be a gold medal winner! The work was of a high standard and any concerns we had even down to a plug socket being millimetres out (we are a bit sad that way) were corrected.
EGR handled the planning application (we wanted permission for sleeping overnight) and it couldn’t have been easier.
The room is solid, well built and really warm (warmer than our house!) and very quiet because of the effectiveness of the insulation.
We love our new room, if you’ve got space do it, you won’t regret it."
- S. Watson, London
I cannot thank Alison and Ben enough for the amazing quality of their work. On the administrative side, Alison was always on top of everything, even putting up with my ridiculous work schedule and hours, which had me away from home for several months leading up to (and during!) the build, and which could have made communication difficult. No time was too inconvenient and I could always rely on her to get back to me swiftly on those rare occasions I wasn’t able to get through first time.
On the construction side Ben was amazing. He would arrive bang on time every day and get to work with zero fuss. The hours he was putting in were quite incredible, especially as he hardly ever appeared to take a break. I can’t believe how quickly everything went up, and the quality of the finish is impeccable. He took my last minute additions and changes on board and even came back to check on the building a couple of weeks after the finishing date, just to help sort the last couple of niggles.
All in all our experience was just perfect, I can’t recommend EGR highly enough, they are that winning combination of friendly, approachable and utterly professional. Thank you for giving us the most amazing room, we are hugely grateful.
- A. Fisher, Wembley
Having only recently moved into our new home in Devon, we were clear that the most urgent change was to create a working space (office/study) for both my wife and I to pursue our careers based from home.
EGR worked like clockwork to complete the full construction from ground works to handing over the keys in 3 weeks. The end product, including the views, gives us the ideal and versatile space, with all the services installed in a high quality, well insulated, secure building.
We are delighted with the outcome and the office was immediately furnished and is in continuous use. Not only has it provided us with the ideal office environment for us both to work in, but it has released the pressure on the house."

Right from our initial contact via e-mail we were impressed by the efficiency and professionalism of EGR. This was reinforced during the initial site visit and subsequent negotiations.
For family reasons we needed accommodation in close proximity to an existing property. An annexe was considered to be the ideal solution, so we set about designing a floorplan that was adapted from previous house builds that we had undertaken in France.
We contacted 3 providers of Garden Annexe buildings and held consultation with them on site and by e-mail. We were then able to review initial designs and quotes in order to ascertain the most suitable solution.
Having decided to work with EGR, we held regular discussions with Alison in order to further refine our project. For each aspect of the interior (kitchen, bathroom, flooring, etc.) we were advised the budget allowed for in the quote and given free choice as to the products used. Anything above or below the budget was adjusted in a list of Contract Variations.
Alison handled all contact with the local planning office and a date was set for the project to commence. From day 1 through to completion, Ben was on site every day and worked tirelessly to keep the project on track and complete on time.
Each weekend we received a plan detailing the works scheduled for the forthcoming week. Any variations decided during construction were accommodated where possible.
Regular liaison between EGR and Building Control ensured that the project met building regulations and approvals.
A thorough clean was carried out prior to handover as well as an explanation of how certain features worked (heating, etc.).
At the conclusion of the project, all we had to do was add furniture. A real turnkey solution.
The result exceeded our expectations. The build and quality of finish is excellent. It is a really pleasant environment in which to live.
From beginning to end (and beyond) Alison and Ben have listened, communicated and delivered. Without hesitation we would recommend their services to anyone that might be considering an annexe.

I have been a beauty therapist for over 16 years and I finally made the decision to work from home but I didn’t want to work in my house, so I started to search the internet for companies that could build me a studio in my garden. I looked at dozens of websites but kept going back to Executive Garden Rooms as their website is so informative and easy to understand.
I knew I would still be working while the build took place, so I wanted a company that I could trust and that supplied all the different trades to carry out the job from start to finish. From my 1st phone call with Alison (admin) and my 1st meeting with Ben (builder), I knew they understood what I needed and I felt confident that they could build me what I wanted, to the high standards that I needed for my business.
What I have is an amazing, modern, insulated studio with 2 treatment rooms, a toilet and air conditioning and because the studio is completely bespoke, it sits perfectly at the end of my garden. I get endless comments on the brilliant quality of the studio and how wonderful it is!
I am so pleased I took the big step of working from home and I would highly recommend this wonderful family run company to build you what you want/need, from start to finish.
When a new client comes in, they always say how warm and comfortable it is in the studio. Best thing i ever did - thank you :-)
- N. Rogers, London
We were so impressed with our initial meeting with Ben who gave us total confidence that our new room could be designed to our specific requirements First impressions are so important. We wanted a building which is a bespoke design with solid foundations, that included site clearance. The turn key service that Ben and Alison were able to provide for us was very important.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Executive Garden Rooms to our family and friends. Ben and his team worked incredibly hard in all weathers and it was a pleasure to have them on site.
Ben and Alison have given us a beautiful room that we enjoyed from the day we were handed the keys. Everything was completed on time and to the agreed budget.
Alison was able design the windows so that we have an uninterrupted view, through the room into the garden from our house. Incorporating the existing electric supply from our greenhouse into the garden room on a separate fuse, was no problem for Ben and his team. Ben and Alison kept us informed at every stage of the build, which made such a difference
If you are thinking of a garden room, then do consider Executive Garden Rooms. They have lived up to and exceeded all our expectations.
Ian & Mary, Bromley
We chose Executive Garden Rooms because they were the only company who we felt really wanted our business. Other companies couldn’t even guarantee they would open their show rooms at the weekend for us to meet with them, whereas a director from Executive Garden Rooms came to meet us and discuss our exact requirements.
Throughout the initial selection process and prior to any commitment, the team at Executive Garden rooms helped us with the design of our building and gave us detailed options at every stage ensuring we knew exactly what we were spending and where we could prevent unecessary expenditure - meaning we got exactly what we wanted within our budget.
We were also keen on Executive Garden Rooms’ turnkey approach. From knocking down the existing garage to applying the last coats of paint, everything was managed by Executive Garden Rooms, which meant there were no hidden costs and no tricky scheduling of different tradesmen to organise.
We felt EGR offered the best value for what we wanted and from the very start seemed to be the most professional and reliable of the companies we contacted.
We could not recommend Executive Garden Rooms highly enough. Their professional, friendly and helpful approach from our very first contact right through to receiving the keys to our new building was exemplary and their complete ‘turnkey’ service provides exceptional value with none of the hidden costs we kept finding elsewhere.
- A Cole-Morgan, Oxon
Having narrowed down to three suppliers, I chose Executive Garden Rooms based on their very relaxed, knowledgable and efficient service. They were competitive on cost, and understood the exact brief that I required.
Executive Garden Rooms were superb from start to finish. I initially chose them due to their extremely knowledgeable, professional, and no pressure consultation. They clearly understood my brief, and were able to answer any questions I had regarding the construction of the home office quickly and effectively. This continued throughout the design process, and everything was agreed down to the last detail.
On site, they were excellent. Everything was completed on time, and to a very high quality. At no point did I feel that I needed to be there, and any slight modifications were undertaken without hesitation. All the professional tradesmen were exceptionally polite, and worked exactly to specification. A fantastic addition to my property.
I would have no hesitation in recommending them in the future.
- T. Monger-Godfrey, Brixton
The garden room has truly made a huge difference to our lives. From being the office that we needed for Helen, as well as a place for our Gym equipment, to our own little private cinema. Saturday Night is Movie Night! We can't thank you both enough for building a life changing addition to our garden.
- Iain, Wokingham
We chose EGR's because they have an excellent, informative website which showed me that they were likely to meet all my criteria. I was looking for outstanding insulation values, provision of a concrete base, full building regulations construction, velux rooflights and on-site management. The ability to deal with planning was an added bonus.
From beginnng to end the whole project ran like clockwork, keeping to a planned daily work schedule, come rain or wind.
After just a day or two I relaxed in the knowledge that we were in very hardworking, capable hands. Ben masterminds the whole operation and has a highly skilled team. The work has been completed to a very high standard.
We live in a small courtyard development, accessed through an archway into a shared space. Ben took the trouble to liaise with neighbours and to ensure that deliveries did not inconvenience them. Alison is an amazing administrator and was so helpful even down to choosing every last detail. They both have a wonderful ’can do’ attitude. I cannot praise or thank them enough. I am delighted with my painting studio.
I would recommend Executive Garden Rooms to our friends & family without a doubt.
- M. Withers, Devon
After doing lots of research on the web, we invited 3 companies to come and have a chat and give us a price. It was quite obvious from our first meeting with Ben that his professionalism and passion for his product shone through. The key factor for us was that EGR’s offered a turn key service which was just what we were looking for, we didn’t want the stress of having to tie up with different trades to get the project finished.
From our very first meeting with Ben, we knew that EGR’s were the company we wanted to build our garden room. The room was to be used as a holistic training studio so needed to be finished to a high spec and be a safe, inviting environment for students to learn in.
From day one we knew we had made the right choice, Ben and his team were on time and worked tirelessly through the rain without any complaints! Ben was on site everyday and with the help of his tradesmen the structure soon took shape.
If there were any problems we never knew about them. Ben was true to his word and organised all the trades and didn’t bother us with any of this. Great!
The project was finished on time without any hiccups. While Ben is on site, Alison is at the end of the phone or email answering any queries and giving valuable advice if needed.
We now have an amazing holistic training studio which is a wonderful environment for our students and tutors to work in.
If you are thinking of adding a garden room for personal or professional use then please consider Executive Garden Rooms, you will not be disappointed. Thank you Ben and Alison.
- Enver and Mandy Zeqiri, Kent
I wish that all work done on our property was as easy as our garden room. Alison, in the office, was hugely helpful and dealt with all of our queries and requests in a friendly and efficient manner.
Ben has an incredible work ethic, which makes having him and his team onsite a real pleasure. Not only were they quick and efficient, but also tidied up after themselves (very important with three small children wanting to explore the building site). Ben was also very good with the neighbours, and took time to chat with them and put them at ease.
We chose EGR's as our preferred supplier as we wanted to have a solid base to prevent animals nesting underneath, all in all a very successful project, and I would have them back anytime…
- J Holden, Ealing
I can’t speak more highly of the work done by Ben and his team. I knew I was in good hands right from his first visit, when we discussed my ideas at length and he gave me plenty of expert advice before I made my decision. I was impressed by the fact that they only do one job at a time and Ben is permanently on site to project-manage.
We live in a typical London terraced house so the only access to the garden is through our somewhat cramped flat, and it could have been an utter nightmare, particularly during the foundations-laying phase, plus of course I didn’t want to upset the people living in the upstairs flats by making a mess of the common hallway. No problem on that score, thanks to the extreme care they took to cover carpets and clean up after every day’s work.
The whole job went incredibly smoothly, all the different trades-people were magnificent, they worked amazingly hard and always with a smile so it was a real pleasure to have them around the house and garden, indeed I felt quite tearful when it came to say goodbye, not the usual feeling when you’ve “had the builders in”, this is mainly due to Ben’s amazing people management skills, a lot of CEOs of much bigger outfits could learn a lot from his utterly unflappable approach.
I was consulted on every last detail of the job and all the admin, including the planning permission, was organised by the super-efficient and very friendly Alison who runs the office.
The end result is a deluxe, energy-efficient office space for me and a really good–looking addition to our home that blends in beautifully with its surroundings and has done nothing to detract from the appeal of our lovely garden in which you can easily forget you are only minutes away from the heart of London.
I would recommend Ben and Alison and their team unreservedly to anyone wanting a superb new room, designed and built to the highest standards, and not involving any stress
- L Makins, London
After meeting Alison and Ben at the Dorchester show we were impressed with quality of the rooms and their professionalism, the rooms were very competitvely priced for the quality of the build.
Our garden room was built in July during the wettest three weeks on record in Dorset!! Despite this Ben worked through the most appalling weather so the building was finished on time and all the sub contractors were here on their scheduled days, except the roofer who came on a Sunday morning as it was the only dry day of the week! – this was exceptional service and meant the room could begin to dry out for the internal works.
We had a bit of an issue with the door and window quality but Ben and Alison did not hesitate to sort this out very quickly for us. Overall we are mightily impressed with the room and it will make our business so much more organised. My quality of life and well-being will also hugely improve as I have moved from a cramped bedroom with only a roof window to a lovely view of the garden and so much additional space! Thank you!
