If you’ve been dreaming of a glorious garden room, you’ve come to the right place!

Here at Vivid Pods, we want to help every homeowner find and enjoy their ideal garden room – regardless of how much money they have to spend.

This is why we’ve created an exciting and innovative range of SIP (Structural Insulated Panels) garden rooms that can be easily assemble during your own hands.

Cutting out third-party assembly costs, you’ll be able to save money, but how much exactly? Read on to find out how much it costs to build your own garden room with SIP panels.

How much does it cost to build your own garden room with SIP panels?

The exact cost of building your own garden room with SIP panels will naturally vary depending on the number and quality of the required SIP panels.

However, according to Checkatrade, you can expect to spend around “£154 per m2 of wall to build with structural insulated panels – £82 for the panels and £72 for the timber framing.”

While this is “five percent more than the cost of materials when building in brick,” the savings on labour and installation time can make building your own garden room with SIP panels a more budget-friendly alternative.

Similarly, SIP panels are also energy efficient, providing sought-after insulation that helps the building to retain heat and regulate the temperature more accurately.

As a result, you could benefit from long-lasting energy savings, too.

If you do decide to build an SIP panel garden room from scratch, however, you’ll need to take into consideration any additional costs associated with sourcing planning drawings, fixtures, tools, and materials.

One way to make the assembly and planning process quicker and easier, while also keeping costs down, is to invest in a pre-manufactured SIPs kit.

Here at Vivid Pods, our Starter DIY Kits start at just £3,671 – a fraction of the price of garden rooms that are professionally assembled on your behalf.

On our website, you’ll find an impressive selection of self-build garden rooms that come complete with detailed instructions and all the fixings any competent DIYer or builder needs to construct their very own garden room.

With optional extras like tool hire, labour hire, and foundation installation, we can provide as much or as little support as you need.
