Garden Room Directory


Timber Rooms is a well-established name specialising in bespoke garden living annexe designs. Concentrating their efforts in the South East of England, they ensure each project receives the individual attention it deserves. Timber Rooms offers a comprehensive turnkey service, managing the entire project for clients from the initial design stage through to the final connections to mains services, leaving you with a fully functional, ready-to-use living space.

Timber Rooms garden annexe buildings are designed to comply with Full Householder Planning Permission and Building Regulations. As part of their turnkey service, Timber Rooms will handle the planning approval process on your behalf.

As the photos above demonstrate, no two Timber Rooms garden annexes are the same. This personalised approach stems from their commitment to understanding how each client intends to use their new living space, using this information as the foundation for their designs. Whether you are looking to create a bedroom with an ensuite or a multi-room garden home, Timber Rooms can bring your vision to reality, providing a comfortable, move-in-ready living space.

Following initial design consultations, the Timber Rooms team will tailor the size, shape, and configuration of the garden annexe to meet your specific requirements. They are not limited to rectangular footprints; they can create bespoke shaped buildings that optimise the available space.

Internally, Timber Rooms can install partition walls to divide the building’s footprint into multiple rooms. They will work closely with you to decide on the division of space and the configuration of doors and windows that each room requires. Timber Rooms completes their interiors to a high standard, with plastered and decorated walls and ceilings, coupled with quality wooden flooring.

Timber Rooms can incorporate kitchens and bathrooms into their designs, handling all associated groundwork and connections as part of their turnkey service.

Timber Rooms specialises in multi-layer structures based on a traditional insulated timber frame core. This build-up results in a highly insulated building that is comfortable to use all year round and fully compliant with Building Regulations. In addition to their mono-pitched roof designs, Timber Rooms also offers pitched roof options, creating stylish interior spaces with vaulted ceilings.

Externally, Timber Rooms offers a variety of exterior cladding options, from durable timbers like Western Red Cedar to maintenance-free composite boards available in a selection of colours. Timber Rooms can enhance the indoor-outdoor lifestyle that garden annexes promote by incorporating covered outdoor areas into their designs. These areas can be used as seating or dining areas, or to accommodate an outdoor kitchen or a hot tub.

Examples of Timber Rooms exterior finishes

As their name suggests, the Timber Rooms team has a passion for working with wood! A closer look at these photos reveals their meticulous attention to timber exterior cladding—note how the lines of the cladding on the walls align seamlessly with those on the soffit of the roof canopy, and the mitred boards that frame the decking.

Timber Rooms offers a range of timber claddings, including Western Red Cedar and Siberian Larch, which are celebrated for their natural durability and aesthetic appeal. Timber claddings like Cedar and Larch are naturally resistant to rot and fungal attacks, offering a long, low-maintenance lifespan.

While Timber Rooms is known for the crisp lines of its contemporary designs, it can also create more rustic looks. When clients have requested a more traditional appearance, waney edge cladding has been used to add texture and character to the garden room, particularly within a cottage garden setting.

Alongside their timber options, Timber Rooms offers composite wood finishes available in a variety of colours, as demonstrated in the examples above. The composite finishes selected by Timber Rooms are dimensionally stable and resistant to rot and fungal attacks. These finishes maintain their appearance without the need for repainting, making them excellent low-maintenance choices.

Timber Rooms can also incorporate exterior lighting into their designs, adding an extra layer of aesthetic style to the building and extending its usability into the evening.

Examples of Timber Rooms interior finishes

Timber Rooms finishes the interiors of their garden annexes to a high standard, featuring plastered and decorated walls and ceilings, complemented by a selection of flooring options. As demonstrated in these photos, this provides a quality backdrop that allows you to imprint your style with the furnishings.

During the design process, the Timber Rooms team takes time to understand how you plan to use your new space and can incorporate features such as kitchens, bars, and bathrooms to enhance the versatility of your building, both now and in the future.

To further customise the space, Timber Rooms can divide the floor plan of their buildings to create multiple rooms. They install partition walls to achieve room sizes and configurations that suit your specific needs, each completed with high-quality internal doors, framed with architraves.

The designers at Timber Rooms are adept at positioning glazing to ensure that views and connections with the garden become integral parts of the design. They offer a diverse range of door and window styles, from floor-to-ceiling windows to narrow rectangular windows that can be positioned high on the wall, and can also integrate skylights to flood the room with natural light.

You can choose from a variety of door styles and sizes, including bi-fold doors. If you wish to create a seamless transition from interior to exterior spaces, the Timber Rooms team can design the floor structure so that the internal flooring and the door threshold are flush with the external patio or deck surface. This careful attention to detail facilitates smooth movement between indoor and outdoor areas.

Timber Rooms will collaborate with you to design an electrical specification that meets your needs. They can include hardwired electrical connections, audiovisual cabling, and heating and cooling systems. As part of their turnkey service, Timber Rooms’ electricians will manage the final electrical connections between your house and the new annexe.

Timber Rooms can incorporate a kitchen into their designs

Many of Timber Rooms‘ clients opt to include a kitchen area in their garden annexes. During the design phase, the Timber Rooms team collaborates with you to determine the optimal position for the kitchen and to select the style of units and their layout. They can design all types of kitchens, from compact snack stations to larger kitchens tailored to the needs of the most enthusiastic cooks.

Incorporating a drinks bar is a popular choice for garden rooms designed as entertainment spaces. As demonstrated in the photos, Timber Rooms can also integrate outdoor kitchens into their designs.

The Timber Rooms team manages the plumbing and electrical connections as part of their comprehensive turnkey service. As a result, the bathroom will be fully operational and ready to use as soon as the installation team departs from the site.
