AMC Garden Rooms

Creating an art and craft studio is a popular use for an AMC Garden Room. They can tailor the size and layout around how you like to work. For instance, they created a compact pottery studio for a client with a small courtyard garden. The AMC design team worked with their client to create a comfortable, light-filled studio space. The clever design included oversized doors and windows, which make the bijou room feel bigger.

AMC Garden Rooms utilise a multi-layer build-up which creates a room like a timber frame house, so you can be assured that your materials and creations are stored in optimal conditions.

Manufactured in their Cambridgeshire workshops using traditional insulated timber framing techniques, the building components are delivered and installed on-site by their dedicated in-house team. The AMC team can handle every aspect of the project, from the initial design to the final connections.

AMC Garden Rooms offer four ranges that are the starting points for a personalised studio design. Each range has been designed to comply with Permitted Development rules. By clicking the links to the profile pages, you will find a handy garden office cost estimator calculator.

Clarity: With the Clarity range, the roof extends beyond the walls to create an attractive eaves detail.

Unity: The Unity range has a strong contemporary form with its cubist lines.

Holkham: The Holkham range features a dual-pitched roofline and tiled roof, which adds a lot of character and creates a vaulted ceiling inside the room.

Garden Pod: Small but perfectly formed, the Garden Pod range can slot into the smallest of gardens.

Each range can be configured to create the size of the building that works best for you, and you have considerable flexibility in terms of customisation with regards to doors, windows layout, and cladding finishes – they offer a wide range of durable timber finishes and low-maintenance composite claddings.

Inside, AMC Garden Rooms are finished to a high standard with plastered and decorated walls and quality wooden flooring. The floor plan can be divided with partition walls to create multiple rooms. In these instances, AMC fits quality internal door sets complete with architrave. If you want to create a storage room, it can be fitted out with OSB boards, which offer a durable finish strong enough to support storage systems.

AMC Garden Rooms can incorporate kitchens and bathrooms into their designs. They work closely with you to configure your ideal layout and to choose fixtures and fittings that complement your style. The AMC team can handle all the groundworks and connections to the mains services as part of their overall project. They also offer off-grid eco-toilets if you want to create a cloakroom without the work of connecting to the mains services.

If you plan to use your garden studio as sleeping accommodation, even only occasionally, it will need to comply with Building Regulations. Discuss this during your free design consultation as AMC Garden Rooms can adapt the specification to comply with these rules, leaving you with a room that offers the greatest flexibility now and in the future.

Each of AMC Garden Rooms’ ranges is designed to comply with the Permitted Development rules. Where planning permission is required, AMC Garden Rooms can handle the process on your behalf.

AMC Garden Rooms can handle the entire project for you, from designing the building through to handing over the keys to the ready-to-use creative studio. This process includes installing the foundation system, although they can work with a suitable existing base if you have one, which would be explored during the free design consultation.

Examples of AMC Garden Rooms exterior finishes

AMC Garden Rooms offer one of the widest ranges of exterior cladding options that we have seen. They provide both durable timber claddings and composite cladding finishes that require minimal maintenance. You can choose from Canadian Cedar, which has a rich reddish-brown colouring, and English Cedar, which is a paler honey colour with a more distinctive grain pattern. Both types of Cedar have long-term low maintenance lifespans thanks to their natural resistance to rot and fungal attacks.

Larch and Thermowood are also low-maintenance wood cladding options that AMC Garden Rooms provide. Larch, with its high resin content, is naturally durable and boasts a rich honey colouring and an attractive grain pattern. Left unfinished, it weathers to a silvery grey colour, or it can be stained for a coloured finish. Thermowood, a treated Redwood, undergoes high-temperature treatment that enhances its structure, resulting in a highly durable finish. Thermowood has a brown colour and an attractive, knotty grain pattern.

AMC Garden Rooms also offer Pine cladding, which will require treatment and ongoing maintenance but can be a cost-effective solution for those looking to maximise their budget.

AMC Garden Rooms offer composite wood cladding in a variety of colours. The boards feature a stylish brushed texture that enhances the contemporary look of AMC Garden Rooms. They also offer Cedral cladding, a cement fibre board available in various colours with a lovely wood grain pattern. Both finishes are dimensionally stable and resistant to rot or fungal attack, maintaining their colour without the need for repainting.

AMC Garden Rooms offer the flexibility to mix cladding finishes, which can be very attractive and cost-effective. Focusing on an expensive cladding material like Canadian Cedar on prominent elevations and using a low-maintenance Cembrit cement fibre board on less visible walls can be a good way to maximise your budget.

AMC Garden Rooms can configure the doors and windows to meet your requirements. They provide both uPVC and Aluminium door & window options fitted with multipoint locking systems and double-glazed windows. You can choose from a range of door and window styles, including bi-fold doors and tall windows that offer a lovely connection with the garden.

Examples of AMC Garden Rooms interior finishes

Internally, AMC Garden Rooms have a high-spec contemporary finish, akin to what you would find in a well-specified new house. The walls and ceilings are plastered and decorated and complemented with wooden flooring. In instances where the floorplan is divided into multiple rooms, quality internal doors are fitted, and the rooms are completed with skirtings and architraves.

AMC Garden Rooms offer a well-specified electrical package, which can be tailored to your intended use. Additionally, they provide the option of a hard-wired internet connection between your house and the garden room. They also offer a range of heating options, including freestanding or wall-mounted electric heaters, underfloor heating, or air conditioning. During your free design consultation, you can discuss all the options to personalise the electrical specification.

The AMC Garden Rooms team can handle the final electrical connection between your house and the garden room, or you can engage a local electrician to do this for you.
