Get into your garden more
Pricklysauce garden rooms are a fantastic addition to your home and garden. Design led with thoughtful detailing, use of materials + specification and a high quality of joinery and carpentry techniques.
Each garden room is unique, a bespoke place designed around your own specific requirements.
Add a garden room as a beautiful sculptural element to your garden, make it adaptable to your use - a micro studio, a sauna, a bike store, a creative workshop or an office with a purpose made work desk / bed unit that smoothly flips over to provide a double bed for those occasional sleep over by friends and family, a place to sit out and enjoy a barbecue on a summers day...
The garden room is available in un-insulated or fully insulated options, and with the addition of electric underfloor heating that will make it a year round addition to your home.
As much of the garden room will be manufactured off site as possible dependent on the final design, to enable as swift a build as possible. All works are undertaken from groundworks up, all that will be required in addition is for a suitable electrical installer if power and lighting are required.
Pricklysauce garden rooms are designed to comply with the permitted development rights and except for specific location planning conditions should generally not require any planning permission.
If planning is required drawings can be prepared for your local planning authority.
As each garden room is an unique project no two cost the same!
For an approximate calculation the un-insulated garden room would be in the region of £500 +/sqm and an insulated garden room would be in the region of £1000+/sqm for fabrication and building on site.
Location, materials and design will all play a part in the final costing though an accurate cost will be provided at design stage prior to an order being placed.
Addition+ Fully Insulated Garden Room
Completed summer 2015, fully insulated addition+ garden room as an artists studio and place to enjoy the evening sun with a glass of wine.
Sawn larch cladding to the exterior, curved galvanised wiggly tin roof, larch deck, double glazed doors and windows with Douglas fir timber frames.
The interior is fully insulated with electric underfloor heating, the walls and ceiling clad with joinery grade birch ply, red vinyl floor covering to add a splash of colour and easy to clean.
Approximate dimensions - 3m x 5m excluding deck.
Completed spring 2016, a funky bike shed designed to be visually light and to store four bikes and an off-road unicycle!
The shed has the unique function of the bikes hooking onto a scaffold pole slider allowing them to stack into a small space that reduces the visual size of the shed.
The bikes are slid out for the clients to choose the one that they want to use.
The extended roof area allows for maintenance of the bikes undercover with all your tools and bike bits handily stored in the shelving built into the door of the shed.

Scaffold Board Shed
A maker space for the clients to be creative with their pottery and wood working, completed autumn 2016.
The design was led by the usage and the only access being through the house. A utilitarian design made fully from rough sawn scaffold boards that provides a glorious uninsulated creative space.
An additional storage slot was provided at the rear for storing long pieces of wood + metal.
Materials - Rough sawn pine scaffold board, structural ply and black wiggly tin.
This is such a great little building that I dearly would like one myself!
A big end boxed shelving window allows loads of natural light in with the addition of strip glazing at sitting height and fully glazed doors.
A large overhanging eave at the big window end, solar shades the work space and an intergrated bench seat provides a place to relax and barbeque in the garden.
The scaffold boards form the framing for the shed which in turn become a massive adjustable storage shelving for tools and materials.
The front facade is designed with external shelves to be populated with pot plants, a place for seedlings to be grown, adding changing colour to the front of the shed.
