Garden rooms to suit your lifestyle
Garden rooms created using our experience of building sustainable, environmentally-friendly homes.
Alexander Antonio Garden Retreats is a family-centric company, and we build every project as if it was for ourselves – in fact we have built one in our own garden.
If you want to extend or add to your home or an existing garden building or garage, we can do this very cost-effectively too.
Work and home - together but separate
With so many of us now working from home for all or part of the time, maintaining a good balance between family life and work can be a challenge. Why not create a dedicated space that is environmentally friendly and beautifully built?
Insulated and ventilated to the highest standards, and with underfloor heating included, it’s an excellent year-round solution. If your retreat has multiple rooms you can create the perfect temperature in each one with independent controls.
If you want the perfect setting for your new business, a beautifully designed high-quality space in your own garden will be ideal. When you welcome your customers it will certainly create the right impression. Whatever you’re planning, from your own home-based medical or dentistry consultation rooms to a yoga studio, you will have the space and quality you want. As a business investment you can even recover the VAT.
Designed for you
Everything will be designed and specified to meet your requirements whether you want a petite 2.5 square metres of solitary space or a generous 8metre by 4metre gym. We will advise you about Building Regulations and planning requirements. If you have a larger project in mind, we can work with architects, structural engineers, and quantity surveyors. You will have a dedicated project manager from start to finish.
An easy process
Only when everything is agreed will we ask you to sign the contract and pay your deposit, and then the process will begin.
Normally, the first thing to do is order the materials and high-quality German doors and windows. While these are being delivered we will complete your project plan so you can be confident that everything on site will go smoothly.
Step by step
We will visit and make a pre-survey of your garden and at this stage advise on any restrictions or planning regulations that need to be adhered to. If necessary we will provide information that can be submitted to the local authority planning office.
Once you are happy with every aspect of your project we will start by ordering your double glazed quality windows, sliding or French doors and other materials. Delivery times can vary but will usually take six to eight weeks. We’ll keep you updated as your order progresses.
While we wait for your deliveries, we will carefully plan all aspects of the work. This can include water and sewer connections, if needed, electrical installation and lighting for indoors and outside, all the internal decoration and finishes.
When we have confirmed delivery dates we will agree a convenient time for the work to be completed. Depending on your project the structure can be watertight in as little as one week. Then all the interior details can be completed.
