Self-Build Garden Room Plans

Our plans are a great fit for those wishing to begin an outbuilding project and want to gain a head start with a modern set of plans and working drawings. You can use the plans to either self-build, or give to a builder for pricing and building the structure for you. The service is suitable for those looking for:

  • Garden Room Plans
  • Home Office Plans
  • Garage Plans
  • Home Bar Plans

Not just a set of plans…

Our service goes way beyond a set of plans. We’re experts in brick garden building design and construction and we provide video tutorials, manuals, tech support and fixed-price project management assistance at reasonable rates.

If you want to self-build or project manage your garden room, this information source will keep you ahead of the game. Read on to find out more.

Why do we sell our plans? 

We are limited to the amount of building projects we can undertake each year and the distance we can travel, so the next best thing for us is to share our knowledge and experience through our plans.

As market leaders in the design and development of brick garden buildings, we have created designs which are both aesthetically pleasing and technically advanced. We share this knowledge with our clients and offer technical support along the way for those who want to achieve the same results for themselves.

Key features of our build plans

  • Level threshold design for accessibility and maximum headroom
  • Most aspects of the construction methods suited to self-builders
  • Maintenance free design aspects throughout the build
  • In-built insulation for year round use
  • Permitted development ready

Our designs are based on a timber frame with a brick outer shell (construction typical of self-build homes), which creates the benefit of an extremely durable exterior with low build costs overall. Surprisingly, the cost to build in brick can equal or better that of traditional timber garden room construction if done using our plans and principles.

The service we provide offers fully detailed plans plus all technical working drawings, so you can request accurate quotations from builders and provide construction details that specifically help save on costs. Alternatively, use the plans yourself if you’re looking to project manage or self-build, with the backup of our project management services.

Supporting materials for self-builders

For self-builders, we include a pre-recorded video walkthrough (above) where one of our experts explains the plans and build process step by step, so you can fully understand the task before you start.  

We also include tech support to help save money and time, whether you’re building the project yourself or allowing someone else to do it for you.

Why do we build in brick?

blue brick

You may have guessed the answer to this question, but let’s summarise. The majority of UK housing stock is built from brick, stone or block because it suits our climate, requires the least amount of maintenance, and lasts longer than virtually any other building material.

Building regulations also state (in many cases) garden buildings over 15sqm must be made from predominantly non-combustible materials if built within 1 metre of any boundary.

Building with brick makes sense in many ways if you want to eliminate the stress of annual maintenance and guarantee compliance with planning law.

Design

Our unique Monopitch-Premium™ design offers architectural features crafted in 3 distinct styles to suit your preference and needs. Whether it be a modern looking garage or workshop, or a contemporary home office, bar, or garden room, you’ll find a style to fall in love with.

Doors and window positioning, style, and sizes can be adapted (if required) to your preference at the time of construction.

Our 3 styles cover the majority of people’s demands, but if you need something a little more unique, you can opt for our bespoke planning service. See below.

Expertise and experience

Decades of experience in the garden building space means we’ve done the hard work when it comes to the technical design, ensuring the most efficient and cost effective construction methods are interwoven into the very DNA of our plans.

The building you create will also be compliant with permitted development regulations, meaning in most cases you will not need to apply for planning permission or building control approval – saving considerable time and money.

With years of expertise in the industry, we understand that our clients are looking to construct a building that is aesthetically pleasing, cost effective, secure and maintenance free, and that’s what you can expect from our Monopitch Premium™ range of garden buildings plans.

Which plan is right for me?

We offer three levels of service depending on your needs. Pick a plan that works best for you depending on your involvement and skill level in the build process.

Premium plans

Our premium plans will be delivered to you in two formats, a digital pdf and a large A2 paper version.  This allows you to send pdf copies to builders to get prices, and have a set of physical working drawings for the jobsite.

Premium plans are NOT to scale, but are customised with your sizes and property details, perfect for contractors and self-builders.  Not to scale drawings are a significant timesaver in terms of the time they take to be produced, but also in cost, potentially saving hundreds if not thousands of pounds for your build.

Premium+ plans

Premium+ gives you all the benefits of our premium service, plus enhanced technical support and project management assistance. If this is a first time build project, you will likely benefit by having a technical expert on hand to help you with decisions and queries throughout the entire build process.

Premium+ gives you access to support via email and telephone, and we’ll complete a virtual site survey (via photographs and Google Earth) with a written report before you start any work.

Bespoke plans

We also create bespoke plans.  Just let us know your requirements, and we’ll provide you with a quotation for your specific project.

Bespoke plans can benefit when planning consent is required, or you have your own ideas for a more complex project. Plans will be drawn to scale and window and door positions will be exact to your requirements.  We will still apply our same advanced design principles to all custom work as we do our Premium planning package.

You’ll also receive our Premium+ enhanced tech support.

Time and cost savings

There’s no doubt you will save both time and money by ordering your self-build plans with us.  We specialise in garden buildings only, so our knowledge of permitted development in this field is extensive and arguably more researched than that of a general architect.

Not only will you save on the plans, but we’ve engineered our buildings to be as cost-efficient to build as possible, in both material choices and construction time.

We appreciate the things that matter the most to you with garden buildings, like maximising headroom, creating level thresholds with adequate drainage, plus a 100% maintenance free aspect to all external building components.

Access to resources and support

We want to make sure that your project is a success, so we’ll be there when you need us.  If you get stuck or have questions along the way, you can rest assured we’ll help and point you in the right direction.

Start your project today

Choose a package that best suits your needs. If you have experience in previous self-build projects or you have a qualified builder undertaking the build, our premium package will be perfect for you.

If this is a first time self-build, or you are undertaking parts of the construction yourself, our Premium+ or bespoke package is probably best suited to your needs…

FAQ’s

Do I really need a set of plans?

Any professional builder will need a set of plans to accurately price a project such as this, otherwise your quotes will not be like-for-like, and you won’t be sure exactly what you are getting for your money. Once the project is underway, a builder will need the plans to use as a guide to build to the correct specification and remain within the specific permitted development planning and building regulations for outbuildings. If your are self-building, the plans will effectively become your set of instructions to complete the build.

What if I need help?

We’ll always help if you or your builder have general questions. If you feel you’ll need technical support during the build, opt for our Premium+ or Bespoke package to receive our project management assistance.

What is your refund policy?

All plans are customised specifically to your order and therefore are bespoke services so we cannot offer refunds, but we will always rectify any mistakes or make alterations whenever required until you are completely satisfied , free of charge.

What can I use the plans for?

For any detached garden room application such as gyms, home office space, pub/bars, garages & workshops etc. Window and door types, sizes and positioning can be modified during construction.

Can I use these plans with a planning application submission?

Absolutely. Planning application drawings do not have to be at scale providing the sizes are displayed and we mark-up all plans with your desired sizes.

What about building regulations?

Although our buildings are designed to comply with permitted development, there are times when you may need to apply for building control approval. Our plans are compliant for submission with most building control applications in England and Wales.

What happens next?

Choose your prefered package and checkout (alternatively you can email or ring us to complete your order). We’ll contact you via email to ask for the information needed about your project so we can complete your plans.

We usually complete and return your plans package within 5 – 10 working days, which will include your plans and points of contact etc. Your paper plan copy will be sent via Royal Mail post.
