Garden Spaces have created a stunning, custom designed living space for our family at a fraction of the cost of a similar sized extension. Their experience and expertise made the whole process from design to build, simple and remarkably stress free. The build itself was incredibly fast and finished beautifully with high quality materials. Could you please pass on how brilliant we thought Ashley and Alan were.


The original intention was for this striking studio to be used as an 'annexe' however requirements changed and it has become additional living space for the teenage children. As such, planning was not necessary however due to its size and the inclusion of a WC, Building Control inspections and sign off was required.
