What is a Contemporary Garden Office?
A Contemporary Garden Office is a garden structure used to create an office away from your home, separating your work life from your home life. It is made from WPC (wood polymere composite) with 28mm double glazed windows and doors.
What foundation do I need for this Contemporary Garden Office?
We recommend a flat, level concrete base at least 100mm bigger on each side: e.g. A 4m by 3m building would have a base of 4.2m by 3.2m See more details here.
How high is this Contemporary Garden Office?
It is 2.46m (8' 0") high
Is this Contemporary Garden Office insulated?
This Contemporary Garden Office contains floor, roof and wall insulation called Polyisocyanurate, which is proven to retain heat better than polystyrene or rockwool. This Contemporary Office also feature 28mm double glazed units to aid in retaining heat.
Does this Contemporary Garden Office need treating?
This Contemporary Garden Office is made from WPC (wood polymer composite) which needs very little maintenance. This eliminates the need for annual treatment application. We recommend wiping the external walls down with warm soapy water every now and again to stop them from getting stained.
What colours are available to purchase with this product?
The office is supplied as standard with a neutral colour of WPC for the external panels and bare MDF on the internal panels. We do not offer or supply paint or treatment for this product, but it can be painted to your preference using a Multi Surface Paint, similar to 'BEDEC Multi Surface Paint'. We have used 'BEDEC Multi Surface Paint' for over eight years now and found it had fantastic adhesion, wear and colour fastness.
How long does it take to build?
This garden office will take two able-bodied people approximately 1-2 days to build, but this is a rough guide and is likely to vary based on external factors such as weather, tools, foundations and expertise.
What tools do I need to build it with?
We provide all the screws and fixings you need to assemble your garden office. All you need is a tape measure, hammer, battery drill, spirit level, hand screwdriver, clear silicone, a caulking gun and a ladder.
How long will it last?
Your Contemporary Garden Office is designed with the intention to keep it extremely easy to maintain and as long-lasting as possible. WPC is a very hard-wearing composite material which, being made of wood-plastic, is able to withstand harsh conditions over a number of years. The pressure treated bearers that the building stands on are guaranteed against rot and insect infestation for 10 years.
Can I install heating?
Our garden offices are well insulated but a small electric or fan heater is a good idea to keep the building warm inside. If you choose to install electrics, speak to an electrician about heating.
Do I need planning permission?
All our garden buildings are designed to be under 2.5 metres tall. This means that it is unlikely that you will need planning permission to install one in your back garden. If you are still unsure, take this quick survey or speak to your local planning office.
Can I fix items to the walls?
Yes, items such as pictures and clocks can be fixed directly to the MDF internal walls. If you want to fix something heavier to than this we would advise using the timber stud in our panels as the fixing point.
Can I install additional flooring materials such as carpet?
Yes, we provide the garden office ready for a choice of flooring to be added. Carpet tiles or standard carpet will give a nice cosy home office feel, and is easily installed. Laminate flooring is cost effective, easy to clean as well as being resistant to stains or scratches. You may want to add some skirting for a neater look.
Do you offer any guarantees or warranties on this product?
We offer a genuine 10-year guarantee against rot and insect infestation on pressure treated timber, which covers the floor bearers of your product.
Can I install electrics such as ceiling lights?
Owing to the multitude of possible configurations available for power and lighting we have left these offices for customers to supply and create their own, exactly how and where they want them. We always recommend that you consult with an electrician for the best advice but we would suggest that the most discreet routes into the office for the electrics would be the rear corners at either high or low level.

How to Lay a Base for your Contemporary Garden Office

A flat and level concrete base is the ideal Garden Office foundation, but if you already have a paved or decked area that you want to place your office onto, that is also a great idea. With any base, the most important thing is that it is flat, square and one hundred percent level.

Concrete Base

There is no need to add a run-off of any kind.

1. Mark out your area

When preparing a concrete base, the first thing you need to do is mark out the area that you will be using. We recommend that the base is the same size as the external dimensions of your bearer plan plus an additional 100mm on all sides.

2. Dig your foundations

You might wish to excavate some foundations for your concrete base, approximately 200mm deep for the base to sit in. This helps to flatten the surface, and you should use a spirit level to make sure that it is completely straight and that any incline is levelled.

3. Add compacted hardcore

Many customers like to add a layer of well-compacted hardcore at the bottom of the foundations to pour the concrete onto. If you choose to do so, you may need to use some timber to frame the hardcore and hold it in place.

4. Pour on the concrete

You can then add the concrete mixture and be sure to level it off using spare timber or some tools. Many customers decide to get a local builder or handyman to lay the concrete for them. After the base is ready, the rest of the build is easy for the competent DIY'er to complete.

Concrete Base

5. Double, Triple Check

If your base is not completely square and level, the build of your garden office will be more difficult and you may find that your product develops problems in the long term. Before you start building, double check that the base is flat using a spirit level and then keep one close to hand as you will need to continue using it as you install the panels. If the spirit level indicates that the base is uneven you will need to use packers.

6. Lay your bearers

Use the bearer layout provided at the beginning of your instructions to judge the size of your base and to assemble your bearers.
