Q:
What is a Garden Office?
A Garden Office is a garden building used to create an office away from your home, separating your work life from your home life.

A Dunster House Garden Office is made from slow-grown spruce, 4mm toughened glass and polyisocyanurate insulation, creating a thermally efficient, smart looking product.
Q:
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.
Q:
Do I need planning permission?
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.
Q:
Is This Garden Office Insulated?
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 feature 28mm double glazed units to aid in retaining heat.
Q:
Where can I visit you? Do you have a store near me?
We currently have 9 distribution centres across the UK. All our business is via our company website and phone - contact us. If you wish to view a particular product, we are happy to arrange a video call or send a pre recorded video to your email address.
Q:
Do you install?
Unfortunately, we do not offer installation currently. 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 cs@dunsterhouse.co.uk.
Q:
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.
Q:
Does this Garden Office need treating?
This 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.
Q:
How long will it last?
Your 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.

Delivery Service

All of our products are delivered using our own fleet of vehicles, not sub-contractors. We have a large number of vehicles dedicated to delivering our quality products so we can guarantee maximum care is taken during the delivery process.


Our deliveries take place Monday to Friday between the hours of 8:00am and 6:00pm.


When the delivery vehicle is unloaded, it is important that you check to make sure all of the items and instructions have arrived and are correct. You will also receive a component list to check your items against. If anything is missing or damaged, it is essential that you note this on your paper work when you hand it back to the delivery driver.


Prices for our delivery services can be found on individual products.


Please note that goods will be delivered to the first point of contact at the front of your property e.g. on your driveway. This must be within 20m from the delivery vehicle (Safely Parked at Kerbside). Our team will be responsible for assessing the risk of carrying out an assisted delivery upon arrival at the property. If they feel that there is no clear access as stated above, they will have to leave the items at the kerbside.

Thank you for taking the time to read about our terms and advice during this period. We hope you can enjoy your Dunster House garden product for many years to come.

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.

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.
