    Get Your Garden Room Ready for Summer 2024

    The green-fingered among us will already be getting their ducks in a row for the start of meteorological spring next month.

    But for those considering a garden room project this summer, although it may seem a long way from BBQ season, preparations also need to be started sooner rather than later!

    So, how can you get your garden room ready for summer 2024?


    For traditional garden rooms

    Design your garden room

    Before you can build your garden room, you need to design a structure that meets your needs and ideal budget without breaching the requirements held by permitted development.

    This design process can be tricky if you are starting from scratch, so it is best to pay a design team or landscaping architect to ensure your designs can be made into a reality – just be aware of the cost of this endeavour.

    Choose your construction materials

    Thanks to the ever-increasing prices of construction materials, you will need to carefully balance the vision in your mind and the price of materials – especially if you go for costly metals and glass panels.

    Task a specialist with garden room construction

    Once you have a design and you have decided on the materials you will need, it’s time to find a construction team capable of bringing your vision to life.

    This is especially true if you consider that the average total length of garden room design build can be anywhere around 23 weeks!

    Similarly, with average prices of traditional garden rooms ranging anywhere from £8,000 to £150,000, it is especially important that you find a good quality but competitive construction team that can also complete the build in a timely manner.


    Consider a storage container garden room

    If you haven’t got the price of a house deposit stashed away and want to enjoy the British summer this year, you could also consider a shipping container garden room.

    Constructed in line with your personal preferences and installed in your garden within a month or two – a converted container garden room can be stylish and inspiring, as well as economical and fast!

    But how is it possible to construct a beautiful garden room in a cost-effective way with a fast turnaround?

    The highly skilled team at Gap Containers can make an affordable and attractive garden room container possible by:

    • Using an in-house design team

    Our experienced and friendly design team can capture your vision and advise on how best to achieve it – with your budget and needs in mind – as well as the rules of permitted development.

    • Constructing from plentiful and inexpensive materials

    Used shipping containers are in abundance and are readily available for use in container conversions.

    This not only makes conversion projects less expensive but also saves the waste of solid, metal structures that have plenty of life left in them – which is much better for the environment.

    • Cutting construction and installation time

    By using ready-made shipping containers, our talented engineers can use the shell to create your dream storage container garden room – which rapidly speeds up the construction process.

    At this point, our team will also add the more aesthetic elements of your design, including windows, doors, electrification, insulation, wall coverings (internal and external), built-in storage, and much more.

    Similarly, installation time can also be cut down by using containers, after custom delivery and installation from our highly trained experts.


    Contact Gap Containers for your custom container garden room

    With such economical and effective garden rooms possible thanks to shipping container conversions, the rise of container garden rooms could be the next biggest trend of the summer – going on to rival the backyard bar of the lockdowns.

    To be sure to get yours before it’s time to light the BBQ or for a bespoke quote for a shipping container garden rooms, feel free to call us on 0870 240 9405 or send us an email to and our team will be in touch.
