We're considering getting one of these for future #wfh and it seems they're quite expensive so I want to get it right.

These firms have been recommended to me: Bathstone Garden Rooms and Green Retreats.

I'd love to know if anyone has used them and did/didn't like them, or if there are any other good firms out there.

The wee house company, if you're in Scotland

I have had a bad experience with Crane so would not recommend them.

We used green retreats and I can’t say anything but glowing things about them. We are really pleased. That said, they’re pricey.

I presume you've had a long hard think about working out there in the winter & with no toilet etc.

I worked in a friends one for about 18 months (with her for her business) it wasn't too bad in the summer, but I couldn't face a second winter if defrosting it, using oil heaters & getting wet/cold to go for a wee etc.

I don't know which brand it was, but in itself it was nice & well made etc.

I'd look at an extension or seeing if we could Rejig the current layout/go up into the loft etc myself.

Goid muck whatever you decide!!

Thanks so much all. I am wondering about could we get a shower/loo in there too, but haven't yet looked into it and that may not be possible.

OTOH it would be at the end of our London garden, so the loo wouldn't be a million miles away.

Other ppl have recommended green retreats to me so good to hear @WellTidy thank you

I go to workshops in a Green Retreat garden room, it’s great and would be the one I would use, I have looked and they are pricey but they do everything and you don’t need ground works
