What are the advantages of your outdoor buildings?

There are countless benefits of having a quality builder like Grand Outdoor Designs install a luxury outdoor building at your property. Not only do you stand to:

  • increase the value of your home and
  • make more space, you’ll also
  • enjoy the outdoor buildings utility, and
  • create an area of your own that you can retreat to, as well as much, much more.

What sort of use could I make of Grand Outdoor Designs’ outdoor buildings?

What you do with your outdoor building is your call! Because of the bespoke nature of the Grand Outdoor Designs service, as long as you can imagine it, we should, within reason, be able to accommodate. We have experience in building and assembling:

  • studios
  • gyms
  • saunas
  • pool houses
  • guest annexes
  • home offices
  • steam rooms
  • cinemas

Will I need planning consent in order to start work?

Not all outdoor building projects will require planning permission. If, for example, you refrain from building on the front elevation of your house, or the proposed building measures less than 3 metres high, you may avoid the need for planning consent. However, if restrictions do apply, or you’re thinking of something a little more ambitious, Dave Bowler, our expert on planning, will be perfectly qualified to assist you.

I have an idea for an outdoor building of some description, what’s the next step?

Simply get in touch with the team! We’re available on 0845 3 66 66 55, and look forward to speaking with you about your vision for your very own outdoor building. We will arrange a thorough consultation to discuss your requirements, and following that, we’ll ascertain whether there are any planning issues, liaise with local authorities, involve architects and begin the construction work.

How much will an outdoor building cost?

As our buildings are all entirely bespoke, rates for construction vary from project to project. But if you drop the team a line with an outline of your requirements, we’ll be able to provide you with an estimate figure. 

What areas do you cover?

We cover within a 15 mile radius of our base in Surbiton, Surrey. We have completed bespoke outdoor buildings in Putney, Barnes, Fulham, Raynes Park, Merton, Weybridge, Leatherhead, Oxshott and Walton on Thames and Wimbledon.

Aren’t there cheaper options available on the market?

As a high-end builder, there are of course more inexpensive options for outdoor buildings available. But where other companies may offer more basic structures, Grand Outdoor Designs prides itself on providing its clients with all-inclusive outdoor rooms. So whether you want internal and external lighting, sustainable materials, energy rated windows and doors, we’ll be able to provide all this and more.

What makes Grand Outdoor Designs different to its competitors?

We offer our customers a fully bespoke service. Because everything that we create is completely made-to-measure, you’ll never have to worry about your home lacking individuality or style through mass-produced products.
