How long does it take to build a garden room?
Our average garden room build time is 20 working days, however this will depend on any additional services you require. As we use structurally insulated panels for our garden rooms, the actual construction part of the garden room is relatively quick and easy.
For larger, more intricate garden room projects, that may involve plumbing in bathrooms or kitchens as well as electrics and media equipment, a bespoke timeline would be required.
Many clients choose to have their garden landscaped or paving added after the garden room has been constructed, which would also require extra time.
Why not book a free site survey with our ITTGR team to guide you through the process, provide you with a quote and an idea of timings for your garden room project.
