Are you planning a new building for your garden but unsure whether to go for an insulated stand alone garden room or a traditional garden shed or wooden summer house?
Making the right choice between the two options for your garden depends on your needs, preferences, and budget. In this blog post, we’ll explore the key differences between modular garden buildings and wooden garden sheds to help you make an informed decision.
Garden Shed Or Garden Building?
If you need a simple storage solution for garden tools or furniture and don’t require a living or working space, a garden shed might be suitable for you. However, if you desire a durable, comfortable, and eco-friendly space that can serve as an office, living area, or rental space, a garden room is the ideal choice.
Garden Sheds For Sale
Typically, a garden shed is a small, basic structure designed for storage purposes. It is commonly constructed from panels of wood or MDF, making it an affordable option. However, garden sheds are not insulated and are not built to withstand harsh weather conditions.
While they serve well for storing outdoor furniture during winter or housing garden tools like lawnmowers, they are not suitable for living or working spaces.
Garden Rooms For Sale
On the other hand, a garden room is a fully insulated structure that complies with building regulations. It is designed to be a habitable living space, just like any other room in your house. Unlike garden sheds, garden rooms are built for year-round comfort and durability.
They are constructed with proper foundations and high-quality materials, providing unparalleled structural strength and longevity. Garden rooms are versatile and can serve as home offices, annexe accommodations, gyms, or even small living quarters.
Insulation and Comfort
One of the significant differences between garden sheds and garden rooms lies in their level of insulation. While you can opt for an insulated garden shed, it still may not provide the same level of comfort as a fully insulated garden room.
At Myndstone, we use Structurally Insulated Panels (SIPs), one of the most effective insulation materials in the industry. This ensures that our garden rooms stay warm in winter and cool in summer, providing a pleasant living or working environment all year round.
Durability and Eco-Friendly
Garden sheds generally have a short lifespan of around 5 to 10 years, and they are more prone to damage during extreme weather conditions. In contrast, garden rooms are built to last over 60 years, making them a more durable and long-term investment. Additionally, the eco-footprint of a garden room is relatively lesser than that of a garden shed.
At Myndstone,, we are committed to sustainability and use 65% less timber than other garden room providers. Our materials are sourced from carbon-neutral production facilities, making our garden rooms 100% recyclable eco-builds.
