SIPs Garden Rooms Explained

SIPs garden rooms main building components are Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) which consist of two oriented strand boards that hold an insulated foam between them. These SIPs panels are pre-built at our factory where we can shape them to fit any design needed. The composite construction of the boards incorporating the insulating foam means that your room will remain warm in winter and cool in summer.

Each SIP has a given U Value which is directly linked to the SIP’s thickness. A U Value is a method of measurement that informs us of how easily heat passes through a wall. We use 4 thicknesses here at PS Contracts: 72mm, 98mm, 122mm & 147mm. You can see their U Values below. Remember, the lower the number, the better the insulation and thermal retention.

SIP Thickness 72mm 98mm 122mm 147mm
U Value (lower is better) 0.44 0.29 0.22 0.17
Weight per 1.2 x 2.4 Meter Panel 46kg 49kg 52kg 55kg

All our SIPs rooms come with double glazed windows and doors which also aids stabilizing room temperatures and provides a professional touch to your room.

 

The External finish for your SIPs garden room is provided by either redwood pine cladding or cedar cladding. Both of these options deliver outstanding looks and durable long lasting weather protection.

 

The roof is fitted with a rubber covered EPDM flat roofing solution which fits perfectly for SIPs garden room builds and offers durability and weather protection that is second to none.

Do you need a smaller cozy space from which to work or a larger room to make into your own garden bar complete with sliding front door access to allow guests easy access to mingle?

Your room can be whatever you need or would like it to be. Check out this list of garden room uses.

SIPs Garden Rooms as a Home Cinema

Sips Garden Rooms make great home cinemas and are ideal for film enthusiasts who love the big screen and want a dedicated room to enjoy their passion. Whether you kit your room out with a projector setup or an extra large TV, you will be enjoying the big screen experience in your own garden.

There is nothing better than sinking down in big comfy chairs and watching the latest Hollywood blockbuster. Work a surround sound system into your build so that film puts you in the centre of the action.

Dimmer lights and mood lights are also a great idea for a home cinema, so you can get the atmosphere just right!

Movie nights are better with friends, so make sure you have enough seating so everyone can enjoy the screen in comfort. Add a small bottle fridge and a microwave for easy access to your favorite drink and hot popcorn and every night can be night at the movies.

SIPs Garden Rooms Make Great Offices

SIPs garden rooms are an ideal solution if you need a home office. If you sometimes work from home, a SIPs garden room is the ideal place to get your work done. Build your room with productivity in mind making sure that you have access to home wifi and kit it out with all those things that make your working life easier.

 

One of the great things about having a garden office is that you can furnish and decorate your space in a way that is personal to you rather than the corporate gray scheme of your work office. Your individual touches and view looking out over your garden will make your personal office a place you will want to spend time in.

 

Expect your productivity and your creativity to increase as your office garden room gives you a quiet space that promotes uninterrupted focus. Being apart from your main house means that all those usually family distractions are removed so you can zero in on your work. Add a filter coffee machine (or tea!) and a small sound system to listen to your preferred work music and you will find your office hours flying by.

Your Questions Answered

Will I have to get planning permission for a garden room installation?

Most garden rooms do not require planning permission.  There are certain circumstances where planning permission is required by Law and we advise you contact your local planning department if you are unsure.  In our experience most Garden Rooms do not need planning permission and all of our rooms are within the allowed dimensions for domestic dwellings.  There are positioning restrictions may apply and if your  property is on a heritage or a listed site you will need to gain advice from the local planning authority. Please call our sales team for further advice.

What preparation do I need to do to the site before installation?

Your site will need clearing by yourselves and we suggest to our clients that they  use either a concrete slab or Ground screws.  There are other methods you can use such as prefabricated steel or timber frame structures or preformed concrete pads. All of the Sips kits we offer are a range of standard sizes. Chat to our sales team for further information on 0800 920 2838

Will I be able to choose extra windows, or move the position/dimensions from the plans?

P.S Contracts only offers standard sizes. Currently we do not cater for  bespoke sizes.  Chat with our sales staff about your project. Structural integrity is important and cannot be compromised but we aim to deliver your dream space. Call our sales team for further guidance.

Will I be able to decide where my electrical sockets and switches and lights units are placed?

Yes! Though they must  conform to electrical codes of practice. Your electrician will be able to advise you on this.

Do you provide a custom install and build service?

Yes we do, though our SIPs kit is constructed to a high standard and we supply all screws, glues and fixings for a manual self build. Any joiner or competent DIY person can install one of our kits.  Chat to our sales team on 0800 920 2838 for more guidance on our build and install services.

Are your garden rooms secure?

Our garden rooms is designed with foreplanning for security, all windows and doors meet industry standards  to ensure they will pass home insurance levels of security.

What is the estimated build time of my garden room?

Build time will depend on access to your build area, the site preparation (ground levelling), and  any upgrades or specification changes you may have ordered. Usual build time for standard units on a level ground is about two-three days, this will see the room erected and watertight.   We try to allow another two days for the interior and exterior cladding; electrical wiring typically will add another two days.  This is considered to be a fast build when compared to regular building work and extensions.

Will I need to insulate my Garden Room?

You will not have to insulate your garden room.  The Structural Insulated Panels (SIP’s) technology we  use to construct our  rooms is built with insulating properties during manufacture. SIP’s panels are used for the buildings floors, walls and ceilings.

Where can I put my garden room on my property?

Unfortunately there are some restrictions, though these are not too harsh and usually you can place your room more or less where you want it. Be mindful of utilities routing.

Can I have a water and electricity in my garden room?

Yes you can. Your chosen Utilities companies will carry out necessary work to your underground supply pipes. Please be aware that planning permission will be required if your garden room is to be used as a living/sleeping accommodation.

Are there any guarantees for materials and works?

Yes, our kits carry manufacturers guarantees on all materials supplied by P.S Contracts.  Have a chat with our team for more information: 0800 920 2838

Do you offer any finance for your SIPs Garden Kits?

Yes! PS Contracts has a range of different finance payment packages. Call our our sales and finance team for a friendly informal chat: 0800 920 2838

Do you offer a delivery service?

Yes, we  are able to deliver throughout the UK.  Deliver costs can vary between  £350-£1000 depending on where you are in the UK. Our flat pack garden rooms are shipped  from our Blackburn factory.

Is anyone able to build and install this kit?

If you are competent at DIY or if you are already working in the building trade then then answer to this is yes  If you skills lie elsewhere then we suggest that you seek the help of a joiner to do the install. P.S. Contracts SIPs Garden Rooms have been made with simplicity of construction in mind.

I have a sloping garden, will this affect the build?

Yes.  You will need to level the ground and build a retaining wall.  Checking with the planning office is a good idea to see at what height the 2.5m allowed for permitted development starts.

Can I attach my new garden room to an existing building?

Yes. If you leave the original wall or door in place then the build will fall under the rules for permitted development.  Removing a wall or will mean the garden room becomes part of the house and therefore will need planning permission.

Is the garden room supplied with all the screws and fixings needed?

Yes.  We give you all the fixings and screws need to complete your build.

Do you provide advice / help service for building my new garden room?

We provide full instructions for building your new garden room we do have a fitting / build service.

I have access issues to my build site. Can my garden room still be delivered and installed?

Yes.  Our garden rooms are delivered in modular pieces and if need be can be hand loaded off the pallets and carried through a home doorway.

Benefits of SIPs

  1. Better energy efficiency, our U-values are as low as 0.10 W/m²•K  which saves energy and reduces running costs.
  2. SIPs Minimises cold bridging. The Y-value is the total loss of heat expected from all thermal bridge losses in all of the buildings junctions. PS Contracts  SIPs rooms have a typical Y-value of 0.025 W/m².K which exceeds the construction details values of 0.08 and 0.04 W/m².K respectively.
  3. Build Speed. Rapid assembly is possible due to the large format SIPS system which lowers build time and reduces construction cost.
  4. Superior air tightness performance. A low number of panel joints by virtue of our large format panels combined with tight panel tolerances of ±2mm.
  5. Rare construction defects. The solid construction of the SIP system eliminates building settlement upon completion – this results in a reduction of time required for post-construction snagging.
  6. Environmentally friendly. SIPs contribute positively to the environment and help to lower CO2 levels. Only recyclable materials are used in manufacture and construction of our SIPs.

Garden Rooms

Garden rooms are the ideal addition to your home if you would like to expand its available room space. Easy to assemble, garden rooms can be used as home offices, home gyms, garden bars or just an extra fun room in your garden for you and your friends to hang out.

Do you have a need for an extra room in your home?  Many people find that they require extra space for a hobby or for work that their current house cannot provide.  Or it may be that you have a garden that you love and would like a room situated somewhere within its bounds so that you can appreciate it more.  There is nothing nicer than being able to work or relax in a beautiful purpose built room and enjoy your garden at the same time.

All About Garden Rooms

The mental image that many of us get when thinking about garden rooms are calm relaxing spaces in which to escape the hustle and bustle of the main house so that we can either just take in the garden or be surrounded by our garden as we apply ourselves to either work or a hobby.  The nature noises of the garden help tune out distractions allowing us to be more productive, taking advantage of the positive atmosphere a garden room provides.

Outdoor rooms have been a feature in gardens for many years. Historically known as Summer Houses, they are spaces that allow us to enjoy our little slice of nature from the civilized comfort of a purpose built room.

With modern technology, garden rooms are now created from pre cut flat packs that can be assembled quickly and easily.

They are usually built separate from the house with a specific purpose in mind, be it rec room, office space or relaxation area.  Garden Rooms really do give you the ability to create a small intimate space that is an extension of yourself that you can really enjoy, a little escapism that breaks you away from your main home building.

Garden rooms come in many shapes and sizes to fully accommodate any needs you may have.  Most can be built without planning permission and their level of finish depends on only your allotted budget.  Some people do not need every whistle and bell for their requirements, whilst others want only the very best for their garden retreats.  All tastes and all budgets/needs can be catered for.

Example Uses For Garden Rooms.

When planning garden rooms, it is best to have a specific purpose in mind.  Most people turn to a garden room as a solution to the particular problem of available space in their main house, or the need for peace and quiet away from a particular boisterous home so that they can concentrate on productivity or to relax.

Garden Rooms As A Home Office

Garden rooms make a great home office and is a great way to improve your productivity as you work. The ability to break away from the bustle of a busy home and seclude yourself in a purpose built work space can really aid your focus and removes the stress of trying to hit important deadlines whilst other members of your house go about their normal lives. No more telling younger children to turn down the cartoons or the older children to turn down their top 40 covers; it’s just you focusing on the job at hand.  Add to that some freshly brewed coffee and some of your favorite productivity music and you can see why lots of people make a garden room home office their preferred work space.

Garden Rooms As Breakout / Game Spaces

Sometimes you just want to have some friends over, lounge in comfy chairs, shoot some pool or break out your favourite console for a co-op session of taking out some bad guys. Garden rooms are the perfect place to chill with friends and play some games as you catch up. Throw a mini fridge into the mix with some choice bottles of your favourite tipple and you are in for a fun get together.

Switch out the tipple for pop and you have a great space for the kids to hang out, a space of their own that leaves the rest of the house blissfully quiet (that is until the pop and snacks run out…..)

Garden Rooms Make Excellent Gyms

Garden rooms are a great option for your home gym.  They are affordable and convenient way of keeping in shape in total privacy. Never miss a gym session again because of time restraints or travel problems. With your gym right there in your garden, you can work out for as long as you like without interruptions from other gym members. Being away from the house means that you can concentrate on your exercises and get into the zone without the danger of your focus being broken by the rest of your family.

Garden Rooms Are Your New Pubs

Garden rooms can be made out to be a functioning pub / bar is a great way to entertain guests. When you really want to move the party out of the house into the open air, a conveniently located pub at the end of the garden is a great boon. Optics on the back wall, bar out front sporting a beer pump and bucket of champagne on ice and you will be serving up a storm.

Garden Rooms for Hobbies

Garden rooms are a great choice if you want to purposely build a space to help you fully pursue and enjoy your hobby. Once you decide to build your own specifically to house and enjoy your hobby you can really customise it to exactly what you need. From artists, painters, photographers to model makers, authors and fashion designers; all can benefit from a purpose made space for them to follow their passion.

Garden Rooms For All Year Round Use

Our garden rooms are made with insulated sip panels, insulated splines and have double glazed windows and doors, making them perfect for all year round use.

In the UK we are blessed with 4 evenly spaced seasons and we understand that it can get quite hot in summer and a bit nippy in winter, which is why all of our garden rooms are made with fully insulated panels and splines. Insulated panels and joins will keep you warm in winter and cool in summer. Needless to say that insulated panels will not be all you will need, but coupled with a small modest heating and cooling solutions, they will definitely keep your room at the right temperature once you have it exactly how you like it.
