20ft pink garden room

This garden room is one of our most stand-out jobs of the year. With its eye-catching colour and the large bi-folding doors it makes a great addition to a back garden, as a place to hang-out, invite company over, or just to get a bit of peace and quiet from the rest of the household. Garden rooms, popularly referred to as "man-caves" or "she-sheds", are the newest trend in home improvements and lifestyle and a converted shipping container offers the opportunity and flexibility for a bespoke build. And you can even take it with you if you move house!
