Eager to create a stunning garden room with your own two hands?

A self-build structure is a fantastic solution – especially if you want to stay within a set budget!

To help you determine how much you should be spending on a DIY garden room, the knowledgeable team at Vivid Pods answers the most common self-build garden room cost queries below.

How much does it cost to self-build a garden room?

As you might imagine, there’s no exact cost when it comes to constructing a garden room yourself because these structures differ when it comes to size, finish, and function (whether you require electrics, plumbing, plastering, a modular or bespoke design).

However, according to Checkatrade, the average price of a mini garden office delivered for self-assembly in the UK is £5,250 – with more affordable options costing £2,500 and the premium kits priced at £8,000.

You will also need to consider any additional costs associated with buying required tools and labour.

Here at Vivid Pods, our DIY garden room kits start at £3,671.00for a 2.4m x 2.6m Starter DIY Kit, making our range affordable when compared to the average UK price.

Should you hire a builder to construct your DIY garden room?

If you’re not a natural DIY-er, then it may be wise to hire a builder to construct your garden room on your behalf.

Similarly, if you don’t have enough free time to construct the garden room before you want to begin using it, it’s best to seek professional help from an experienced contractor. Bear in mind, however, that this will increase the overall self-build garden room cost.

On the other hand, if you have the tools and the know-how, following the instructions included with our DIY garden room kits shouldn’t bean issue.

If you plan on designing and constructing your DIY garden room from scratch, you may want to at least consult with a builder prior to starting construction.
