To ensure the very best quality, we only use slow-grown White Spruce Timber, which is harvested in cold climates to ensure solid, dense log rings. This gives the wood superior strength and longevity, and a much more consistent colour than the likes of Pine.

There is nothing more annoying than being in the middle of building something and finding that you don’t have the right fixings to continue. We include all of the screws, nails and fixings that you will need to put your garden building together – not many of our competitors are that thoughtful. This eliminates the need to worry about the type of screws or the length of nails you might need to get started – it’ll all be with your delivery.

Fixings Included

Wish to customise your Garden room? As the wall panels supplied are of the same size, this means that a wall panel can be replaced by a window panel (for instance) and the wall panel used elsewhere, the doorway (2 panels) can be changed with any mix of 2 panels.

You could put the door on a side aspect and have a wall of windows to the front aspect if that is how you want your Dominator to look.

Customise the Dominator to a configuration that works for you!

Dominator Configuration DIY

A low U-Value means that your walls, roof and floor radiate less heat, in reality, you keep cool in the summer and warm in the winter whilst having lower energy costs. The Dominator has low U-Value walls, roof and floor thus keeping your running costs down. The walls have a U-Value of 0.63, roof U-Value is 0.49 and the floor U-Value is 0.64.

The lower the U-Value the better! Be weary of any competitor products on the market that don’t advertise U-Values.

Fully Insulated Dominator

All of our garden buildings have pressure-treated floor bearers as standard. This treatment prevents the timber bearers from rotting for up to 10 years and causing your garden building to sink. Pressure treatment forces the wood preservative into the timber rather than simply dip treating (essentially just covering the exterior) like many companies still do. Who wants to have to annually deconstruct and re-treat the bearers each year!

Due to this costly but effective process, we can offer our customers a genuine 10-year guarantee against rot and insect infestation on the bearers.  We do however recommend applying a good quality water repellent to the timber to prolong the longevity of the timber. Shockingly many of our competitors still offer untreated bearers to keep their costs down, so beware!

All our Pressure Treated timber is for Use Class 3

Pressure Treated Bearers

Rotten Untreated Floor Bearers

Lightweight and flexible. SuperFOIL is ideal for use in Garden rooms like the Dominator. It is preinstalled in the roof and wall panels and is just unrolled across the ground bearers for floor insulation. As it comes on a roll the floor installation is quick and very easily installed.

 

If you had any doubts as to the quality of the insulation, don’t!  Firstly, it’s made from 40% recycled material, so it’s great for the environment, but not only that it’s of a high enough standard that it can be used in homes as part of roof, walls and floor insulation.

 

When comparing competitor products, be sure to check what insulation is used. Some competitors may use cheap materials such as bubble wrap which is nowhere near as effective!

Garden office insulation

The bearers of your garden building are pressure treated to help protect your garden building from the ground up. We provide a 10 year guarantee against rot and insect infestation for all pressure treated timbers.

Unlike some competition, we can offer a genuine 10-year guarantee against wood-eating fungal and insect infestation on pressure-treated timber.

10 Year Guarantee on Pressure Treated Timber

Purlins are the large timbers used for structural support in buildings. We use very thick, heavy duty roof purlins to support your garden building.  At 140mm x 45mm they are amongst the thickest purlins available on the UK market. Competitors will often use thinner purlins to keep their costs down which means their roofs will not be as strong as ours. Using thinner purlins risks the roof collapsing or sagging during extreme weather – and that’s the last thing anyone wants!

Heavy Duty Roof Purlins

This garden building is under 2.5m high. Why does this matter? Under permitted development rights, buildings under 2.5m high can be placed as close as you want to a boundary (eg. a fence line) without planning permission. Garden buildings that are over 2.5m high need to be placed over 2m away from any boundary (eg. a fence line), which could lead to a lot of wasted space. If you want to find out more about permitted development rights see our planning guide

Both our doors and windows are fitted with internal beading used to secure the glazing in place. This beading style is typically found in uPVC windows and is a proven method of security. However, there are still some companies that externally bead their windows. Allowing intruders to remove the glazing from the outside of your garden house and gain access.

internally beaded windows

Security is important for your garden building, to ensure all your belongings and any valuable equipment is safe. Our uPVC doors feature an industry leading 12-point locking system. Meanwhile, the windows feature multipoint locks with secure key locking handles.

Our 12-point locking consists of four shoot bolts, three mushroom headed espagnolettes, three hook bolts, a locking latch and a 6-pin euro cylinder. The windows feature a multi-point locking system consisting of mushroom-headed espagnolettes which move in opposite directions into metal keeps. Why would you risk your possessions by using less?

So, if you are comparing garden buildings, don’t forget that our uPVC windows and doors offer additional security benefits!

Unlike some, we only use full-length cuts of shiplap cladding on our garden offices, which comes in a substantial thickness of 15mm. The advantages of using shiplap cladding is it is robust and sturdy.

Our cladding interlocks, creating a strong watertight bond that allows rain to run off the office quicker, it also creates an attractive, professional appearance, that’s certain to wow potential clients if you’re running your business from home.

Ventilation is essential for the longevity of the Garden Building. This is to ensure airflow and minimise moisture at all times. We have provided ample vents to ensure that condensation is never a problem. Some competitors charge you extra for these or do not even offer them.

Vents Included with cabins

Get your garden office up and running quickly and easily thanks to the full panels provided. No need to waste time building up walls or fixing doors together.

DIY Garden Offices Easy Build Panel System

When constructing your log cabin, you do not need to worry about putting our timber windows together, as they come preassembled. So you simply need to slot them in, and fit the finishing touches. After all, we take pride in our DIY-friendly designed products. Many competitor products require you to painstakingly construct the windows and other hardware, such as window trims, and install the glass.

Did you know? You can also add a little character to your timber windows with some stylish Georgian bars, which we supply as standard. However, this is entirely optional and up to you. Not all products offer Georgian bars, so be sure to check the product specification.

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.

 

This garden room is 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.

 

The Dominator Garden Office contains floor, roof and wall insulation made from SF6 SuperFOIL, which is proven to retain heat better than polystyrene or rockwool. The Dominator also features 28mm double glazed units to aid in retaining heat.

We do not currently offer installation. All our garden buildings have been designed on the basis that any competent DIY customer will have no problem installing a product themselves in a short amount of time.

You do not have to be an expert at DIY to build a Dunster House garden building, as we do provide you with comprehensive pictorial instructions. Also, if you prefer video tutorials, we do have a selection of videos on YouTube which will support you in building your product.

We totally understand that DIY is not for everyone and it can be very overwhelming to start building your own garden product. Therefore, you may want to consider getting in touch with a local carpenter or handyman to install it for you.

If you do take on the challenge to put your garden building together, we are always here to help. Do not hesitate to contact us at any stage of putting your product together and we can provide you with all the assistance you may need. Contact our customer service team via email at [email protected].

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.

This Garden Office contains floor, roof and wall insulation. The type of insulation we use is called Polyisocyanurate, which is proven to retain heat better than polystyrene or rockwool. This Garden Office also features 28mm double glazed units to aid in retaining heat.

Due to the unique design of a Dunster House product, in the vast majority of cases our garden buildings can be installed without the need for planning permission.

However, there are a few other factors to consider:

As all properties are different in size, shape and style we can only advise based on how we have designed our products, not on your property.

When to consider planning permission:

  • If the garden building exceeds over 2.5m tall – the majority of Dunster House buildings do not exceed this.
  • If you intend on putting an outbuilding in front of the main elevation of your property (as it was originally built or as it was on 1st July 1948) will require Planning Permission.
  • If you live in a listed or graded building
  • If you live in a designated area such as areas of outstanding natural beauty, national parks, world heritage sites and conservation areas.
  • If there is a possibility that over 50% of your garden would be taken up by outbuildings.

Still not sure?

If you are still in doubt, we highly recommend getting in contact with your local authority before making a final purchase.
