What’s the difference between a normal garden office and one that is “luxury”?

Garden Offices Wales

Picture, this it’s spring time, you’ve got to start work, and you’ve paid to have a garden room built, yet the one you’ve purchased, well its below par. It has a leaky roof in some places, the bi-folding door needs a weight-lifter to close, there’s a draft that comes from below the windows, and all this in a space that you wanted to work in, and send your morning e-mails!

So now you can see what we are getting at, there’s garden offices, then there’s garden offices, there’s the “well, it was cheap, as long as they can build it quickly” type of wooden building, and there’s the Kingsley garden offices, which are on a completely different level.

Now you might be thinking, well how, what makes your wooden buildings “luxury” surely a wooden building is just that, a timber building? Well, no, its not the quality can vary so massively you be shocked.

To a garden room you want to spend time in, to one so low quality you may contemplate knocking it down after a short-period!

So, this is why Kingsley is simply so popular, so well-known throughout Wales for building absolute quality.

We simply never ever compromise on quality, it’s the hall-mark of what we do.

Don’t compromise

Nearly all building materials can be substituted for something cheaper, and that’s the exact approach some summerhouse companies take, that is how cheaply can I build it, how low can I offer the summerhouse for, will this undercut a rival’s price, and we believe this is not the approach to take, that’s not to build summerhouses or garden rooms as cheaply as you can, as after all it’s a space you should want to spend time in, a space you enjoy working, a space that you have helped to design.

When the drip, drip, drip sound comes from the roof, after a short amount of time, you will have wished you picked another company, a company like Kingsley, that offers luxury garden rooms within Wales.

Quality always comes first at Kingsley

So, how does Kingsley make sure that our standards are kept high?

Well, we design every single garden room around you, that’s to say when we meet you in your garden, that’s here in Cardiff, or anywhere in Wales, we listen to how you want your wooden building built, for example dimensions, which roof, where you want the outside lights placed, whether you want a large wooden deck to the front, which flooring you want, for example, then we build the whole luxury garden office or room around you.

We then purchase only very high-quality building materials, for example, we handpick the timber from a timber yard, we only appoint roofing contractors, not on price, but on the basis, we know the quality of workmanship will be high, we also only order bi-folding doors on the basis, the quality is perfect.

Designed the way you want

This means when a homeowner here in Wales wants a luxury garden office, they come to us, that’s because we offer quality.

Built all over Wales

You can be rest assured that when you hire Kingsley, you will be hiring a really experienced team of project managers, estimators, carpenters and other tradesmen such as roofing contractors and electricians, that’s because we have built garden rooms all over Wales, that’s in Newport and in Cardiff.

When you hire Kingsley, we can completely project manage the whole build, we make it completely stress-free for our customers. As soon as we meet with you in your garden, we can discuss options, often then we need to go away and make a few calculations, as building material costs, such as timber do fluctuate, we then can come back to you with an estimate.

Then if accepted, we can book you in as soon as possible, we begin by laying what is called a concrete slab on most builds, sometimes we can build off an old concrete base, we do need to evaluate each job individually as to what is required, once we have a foundation, our carpenters can start working building your brand-new luxury garden office for you here in Wales.

Quality roof covering


We never compromise when it comes the quality of the roof, some companies, when they are building summerhouses here in Wales, sometimes opt for the cheapest type of roof, however, we know that its absolutely key to purchase a quality roof, one that’s either a fibreglass roof, or a rubber roof, but for this to be installed by our highly skilled roofers.


Some summerhouses do not have wall insulation, however we believe this is essential, so when you hire Kingsley, we will use insulation in the walls of your garden office.


When you hire us to build your luxury garden office, we can offer you many different types of wooden cladding, for example, would you like pine, red cedar, metal cladding, thermo wood or perhaps beech wood? We can offer you so many different options.

Windows and doors

When a homeowner appoints us to build their new garden room, or garden office, often they want bi-folding doors, however, as someone who’s thinking of purchasing a garden office, you should know that the quality of bi-folding doors do vary massively, so do pick a business which only provides quality bi-folds.

Some look the part, but are far from it

When comparing various summerhouses, or let’s say garden rooms, its important to compare on quality, as some can be built rather cheaply. However, we focus on quality, so you can be rest assured that when you hire us we build quality.

You might spend most of your day working within your garden office, so don’t hire the wrong company

If you’re planning on working from home, let’s say you run your own company, or let’s say you’re working for a company, yet they have allowed flexible working, so for half of the week, you now work from home, you are going to want to work in a quality wooden building, that’s made by experienced carpenters, so if you want a quality garden room in Wales, well, why not call Kingsley?

Really good carpeners

Workmanship is so important, whether you want a large garden office, or let’s say a truly large L-shaped summerhouse, we are the company in Wales to call, we have really highly skilled carpenters, so why not call us, if you want a luxury garden office or room built.

What makes the summerhouses that you build in Cardiff “luxury”?

Summer is nearly here, yet with that said, lockdown is still with us, this has meant that more and more of us wants to invest in our gardens. This stands to reason, as we will be travelling less to say beautiful parts of Wales, such as the Brecon Beacons, because of lockdown restrictions which mean we have to stay locally.

This means that more and more Cardiff residents are wanting to spend an increased amount of time in our gardens, so you want to invest in a summerhouse to enhance the garden. Perhaps you have plans to create a cinema room, a home gym or perhaps you want to build a summerhouse to use as a home bar?

Whatever you want to use your Cardiff summerhouse for, we can help. We have built many luxury summerhouses throughout Cardiff, this includes in Llanishen, Roath and also in Cyncoed.

We can’t think of a better way than to enhance any garden, than investing in a Kingsley summerhouse, below we are going to explain what makes our garden rooms and summerhouses “luxury”.

We will also answer some of the frequently asked questions that we often get asked when providing quotes.
Yet, before we dive straight into answering the frequently asked questions, we would like to say that’s we can offer free quotes within the Cardiff area, we also work in the surrounding regions as well.

This means if you would like a timber building constructed, and to be built to an incredibly high standard then why not give Kingsley and his team a call today?

Okay, so all summerhouses are the same shortly? They’re all made from timber, right?

Now this is a mistake that many homeowners make, thinking that they just need a summerhouse to be built to certain dimensions, and some may overlook how well-built the actual summerhouse is, in terms of the quality of the building materials that are use.

Now here’s the thing while looking to buy a flat pack summerhouse online, there are likely to be hundreds of online websites which sell wooden buildings like this, however what we were to say is this the quality can range massively.

Where one company might offer an incredibly well-built and sturdy summerhouse, using quality timber such as red cedar wood and perhaps with really good-quality insulation panels and a good roof covering, other companies do not offer anything like this, they may offer substandard summerhouses, built cheaply to be offered on a form of special offer.

Therefore it’s easy to purchase substandard summerhouses, for example ones which have inferior pinewood. Now there’s nothing wrong with pine, yet sometimes the wrong type of timber is used.

For example, some companies might supply a summerhouse which simply slots together, yet with that said it, what can sometimes happen is that sometimes a company will supply a wooden summerhouse, yet is made from a pinewood which is not treated for use in our wet damp climates.

Now when you can imagine how wet and cold our winters can be, you can see that if the wood used in the construction is not a certain grade and quality, it’s entirely possible for wood rot, or wood worm to set in very quickly.

So, whether you purchase a brand-new impressive summerhouse built by Kingsley, or by another company, we would ask you to make sure that you are purchasing a summerhouse that is well-built and uses quality timber throughout.

We have a rough sketch, of how you would like a summerhouse to be built, can you offer a quote from this?

Sometimes a customer would like a rough ballpark quote for us to build a summerhouse in Cardiff, Wales that’s the say, they do not want somebody out in a garden to offer an estimate just yet, they would like just to gain a rough idea of how much garden room will cost, in terms of a rough idea of prices.

Sometimes, not always, we can offer a quote via e-mail, by just looking at summerhouse designs that you like.
For example, some customers scan a picture of a summerhouse they’ve seen in the interior design magazine, others source a photo of a wooden summerhouse they like, and then ask is for a quote.

If we are able to gain from the picture a really good understanding of the construction, for example how the windows and doors are to be built, the roof covering used, and also the dimensions, plus also the different cladding, then sometimes we can offer a quote via email.
We need a Cardiff summerhouse built in a short amount of time, are you able to build such a timber building quickly?

We have an experienced team, our team also covers the whole Cardiff and the surrounding areas, we build really impressive summerhouses.
Yet, every single one of our timber buildings is built to order, it’s totally bespoke in that regard, as such it’s difficult to give you an accurate timescale as to how long it will take us to build, however if you e-mail or call us, we will endeavour to give you a timescale for how long it will take us to build your new summerhouse for you.

So, what makes you summerhouses such high quality?

We go to great lengths to ensure we deliver quality and every single time we are appointed to build a garden room in Wales, to do this we carefully source our timber, and we only use building materials that we know will always be of a high standard, for example we only use a certain manufacturers, which make our aluminium bi-folding doors, so that we can offer a consistent level of quality to every customer.
Do you just build summerhouses within Cardiff?

We have a team that travels all over South Wales as well as South West, so we do cover a wide geographic area, we offer free quotes within those areas.

Are summerhouses used as a term to also describe garden rooms?

Yes, some customers do get confused as to what is the difference between a garden office, garden room, a log cabin and a summerhouse- however often these are terms that are used interchangeably, and are therefore used to describe a timber building that’s built in your garden.
I have a design in my mind that I would like the summerhouse to be built, are you able to build this?

Yes, if you are able to tell us exactly how you would like your wooden building to be constructed, for example some homeowners have a really good knowledge of building materials, so they know which wooden cladding they want, which type of roof they would like, how they want it to be built in terms of colour of the bi-folding doors, then we are able to offer to build a summerhouse exactly as the specification that’s described to us.

Why does the quality of even bespoke summerhouses range massively?

Now a lot of customers do incorrectly think just because it is a “bespoke build”, that any company will offer quality, however even if the timber building is not flat-pack, it instead made to order in your garden, this doesn’t necessarily mean that you will be obtain quality from all companies.

That’s to say, even though the building is built to be bespoke to your own requirements, to ensure that the company is building the wooden summerhouse to a high standard, and that you are obtaining high-quality building materials, such as a rubber roof, which should be correctly installed by a roofing contractor, you need to pick a reputable business, like Kingsley.

Will it take long to build my new summerhouse?

This does depend on the complexity of the summerhouse, now you might say, “well surely all summerhouses are roughly the same dimensions” but they are not, some are truly large, for example some are “L-shaped Summerhouses” and some are so large that they are sometimes used as guest bedrooms, because they have separate rooms, some even have ensuite toilets and showers, so you do need to provide an accurate description of what the customer would like, and then we can provide a rough timescales.

We live in a terraced property within Cardiff, will this make it difficult or impossible to have a summerhouse built at the end of our garden?
We have built summerhouses at the back of terraced housing, as long as the customer is happy for us to use the house as a method of taking building materials through, if there is no other option that is, then it is entirely possible for us to build a summerhouse within a terraced house’s garden, we would need to visit your property, to see if we can get the building materials into the correct location in your garden.
We would like some different design features, for example, we would like a skylight fitted, and also like composite decking, is this possible?
Some customers will want different design features, for example somebody who is working from home, let’s say architect, may want natural light to flood from the roof and via the bi-folding doors, so we can install rooflights as well, if this is what customer wants.
We can also offer you many different design options, for example on your Cardiff summerhouse, you might want LED lighting outside?

You might want composite decking, or hardwood flooring inside the summerhouse, you and walls painted a certain colour?

So simply put, we can build exactly what you want, as per your specification

So, you build luxury summerhouses, can you build anything else?

Some customers do ask is to also replace the wooden fencing, and to also replace the decking, sometimes the customer does not want a brand-new garden room built, and then have say an old fence or old decking near the garden room, the whole garden can be refreshed, and that’s something that we can offer as a company here in Cardiff.

How do I arrange a quote?
We offer free estimates throughout Cardiff and all of the surrounding areas, for example, we also travel to Newport in South Wales.

Therefore if you want quality summerhouse or a quality garden room then do give our company a ring today.
