My garden room was completed a month ago now, and the entire experience was as stress free as you could want for an installation like this! There’s been no teething problems thus far, and throughout the process the communication and responsiveness from Jamie & Gabs was fantastic.

I’d seen a few unfavourable reviews which did leave me slightly nervous, however those nerves were completely unfounded.

If anyone is in the market for a garden room do yourself a favour and look no further than Sdhp!

We’ve had our garden room for 3 years. Another member of our family just got their latest model and it look’s cracking. We’ve had great service throughout and they still check in with us now. Ours I actually prefer now as it looks more a part of the natural garden as it matures. In the lakes we’ve had awful rain & heavy snow and the roof still looks perfect.

Not sure why there are any bad reviews, our small sample of 2 experiences has been great. Perhaps other people don’t follow the simple aftercare???

From initial quote right through to installation I was kept up to date & told of any delays that might occur. Thankfully all went according to plan & I’m sitting writing this review from my garden room!! Thanks guys v pleased

My second garden room! We had one installed in our last house installed 3 years ago, hasn’t needed any maintenance at all. We bought a new one this year, that did need another screw in the trim after a few months which they quickly came and sorted. Great product and great aftercare.

Sheila H.

Was a little sceptical when reading some reviews on here alongside having a slight delay on site, however I am really happy with the end product.

The build took 2 days in total, and the install team were friendly and know the product inside out. The whole room seems of a really high standard, which tbh you would expect at this price point. Thanks to Gabrio for project managing also.

We had our room installed back in 2021. It was pretty much perfect.

I’m not sure how anyone can leave a bad review. Like any build project, there were niggles, but hardly anything at all. The door needed a tiny bit of adjustment once the room had settled which was done easily. They also replaced a faulty light.

After a full year there were some areas that needed more stain. The wood does expand and contract as its a living material, but never had any problems. Maybe other customers aren’t taking the proper care, but we re-stain once a year, keep it ventilated and don’t store anything up against the outside which can attract damp and cause issues.

This year we had a bit of trim come off when a branch hit the roof! It came down with a real thud but the roof held up very well, and only a bit of plastic trim came off. They quickly sent me a replacement piece free of charge, even 2 years out of warranty.

Shout out to Jamie and Gabrio who are always responsive and made the whole thing seamless.

I had a wonderful experience with the SdPh team. They all have been great and really helpful throughout the entire process! Love my garden room

Had my Darcie installed last week and wanted to wait until we had moved all our stuff in before I reviewed. The whole purchase, delivery and installation was flawless but I wanted to see for myself having used it over a week if it was, insulated, well built and as good as promised. I have to say I am completely and utterly over the moon with it. It’s amazing and completely transformed our garden space and allowed us the extra room we needed. We have half as a nice storage area and the other half is an open plan entertaining area that flows out to the decking. It’s truly amazing… as soon as it stops raining I’ll be adding pictures too… thank you guys!! Wonderful all round.

Darren H.

The best! I had a fantastic experience working with SDPH. I have a wonderful garden room. It was done on time and without a mess. I couldn’t recommend them highly enough!!!


We are delighted with our garden office, we’ve had it a few months now and it’s great, I prefer it to when I used to use the spare room in the house as it feels separate. I was worried it wouldn’t feel solid but the build and finish quality is incredible. And I must say the lady we dealt with when ordering was great, talked us through everything we needed and made it so easy. The team that came and installed were super quick also. My wife wants a second one for a studio for herself, we’ve recommended them to everyone we know. Must say, solid 5 stars

Robbie I.

I live my garden room. It’s a great working spot. Excellent Service.


Astrid V

Everyone at SdPh was super helpful throughout the process – even when we kept changing the design – and we’ve now got a great new garden room full of potential. The builders were very efficient too. It shot up and only took a day to build.


Mark T

From start to finish I have been kept informed of the whole process, your team have been great to deal with, all the fitters were professional polite and cleaned up after the build.

I would certainly recommend SdPh to my business colleagues, friends and family.

Thank you for a great smooth transaction.


Paul M

Had my garden room installed in December and was complete within the day. Whole experience took around 4 week and everyone was really responsive, install team were great as well.

Gary L

Great journey throughout the website, easy to choose exactly what you want and understand the process from start to finish. Great to be able to customise my design exactly as I wanted. Very helpful if you pick up the phone and have a chat also. In the end I realised they didn’t offer delivery
overseas, but they let me use the design free of charge for a local builder to use and offered to assist in technical knowledge as well.

Jaya Mathur

This company are absolutely amazing from the first contact until my garden room was completed today it’s been a fantastic experience to work with them, nothing was too much trouble for them, I changed my mind on a daily basis but nothing fazed them, the guys that built the room were excellent from the minute they arrived and didn’t stop till the job was done. Well done to everyone at Fora Garden Rooms and thank you all so much for my amazing garden room

Christine M

The whole process has been impressive from the design stage where detailed drawings are produced with their many requested alterations to the on scheduled delivery to the final build. The finished product is as per the drawings and looks even better in the flesh.
One misdescription on their brochure is it saying the shed can be built in one day. The fitter said “no way” – the minimum period of an average build is 3 days.
That apart it has been wonderful experience and very pleasing from start to finish and a great product at the end.
Highly recommended !!!

We had our new garden office installed two weeks ago and couldn’t be happier with it. It’s added much needed space for my wife and I to work in and transformed how we use the garden. The build was incredibly quick and the installation team took every little hiccup in their stride (including having to share the smallish garden space with another team of tradesmen doing work on the back of the house!). Great communication and so far great value.e whole process has been impressive from the design stage where detailed drawings are produced with their many requested alterations to the on scheduled delivery to the final build.

Matt R

Super pleased! With my garden room Jamie and Gabrio have been really helpful.

Really impressed with builders, really hard working, friendly and resolved an issue with a neighbour. I would highly recommend SdPh. Really happy! thank you


Sarah J

I can’t fault anything. Pre sales and project management was great and kept us informed of progress throughout. We live on a sloped property and thought this may be an issue but the friendly installers took it in their stride. The build itself is solid and appears good quality and has been a great addition to the house. Special thanks to Gabrio for managing the project.


Neil H

I liked the way I could pick all aspects, and get an immediate price.  And the cost was lower than other people.  Painless  from design to construction, it was all good. The install team were great and I’m very happy with it.  Still makes me smile to see it there

Steve G

We had our garden room installed last summer by SdPh and we couldn’t be happier. The whole process was completely professional and efficient right from designing our layout where we spoke to the team who made great suggestions for how we make the space work with our plans. When it came to installation the team were so friendly, efficient and flexible. I’ve never worked with a team who were so passionate about ensuring we were happy with the final product – when they were finished they invited us to the garden for the big reveal!

Helen W

Wow, the Cedar finish is incredible.


Absolutley love our new garden office space, it doubles up as a bar & outdoor DJ area with the double doors opening into the garden. We wanted to save cost on the interior so went with the OSB finish and it looks the bomb!


Sergio I

Garden outdoor insulated bar and DJ area. Teak stain & anthractite doors on the outside


Danny W

Communication between the customer and project manager was poor and when there was a problem which could have been avoided with proper project management there was no way of getting hold of anyone.! Despite following it up still nothing back, very poor given you have to pay up front for everything. Build team are great though. At the moment I wouldn’t recommend this.

Gary C

Can’t recommend SdPh enough for building our garden room (Office). Great service from Lewis in sales and the installation team worked non stop and left the site very clean.

Darren K

Great service from all the team at SdPh from start to finish. Nothing was too much and any issues were ironed out in no time.

Install guys were outstanding, and took all the stress out of the delivery and ground level.

Really pleased with the new space. Office by day, soon to be man-cave by night.


Ian M

the garden room is awesome – I may be looking for an additional 3 across the UK for my satellite offices  

Vish J

We love our office pod.  The finished result was better than our expectations. The build team worked so hard to make sure everything was perfect. Really good quality and everything we wanted. Thank you.                                                                                                         

Naomi M

I only yesterday returned home after a time away with my bubble !! The garden room, which I always loved is looking splendid . I know there were a few hiccups but SdPh were very quick to put these right so thank you. I now have time to make it into a lovely place to both sit and work in!

I know I made the right choice when picking your company. My only thought is that I wish you had a catchier name like ‘Special Spaces ‘ or some such which is easier to remember and pass on!!!!! Just a thought !!!


Karen S

The install went well on the whole and your team were very accommodating, friendly and professional.

David C

The team have finished our building and we are completely thrilled. Only one snag is that we don’t have the correct length electrical cable (10m not 25m) but your team will be sending over one tomorrow. Your build team were all fantastic chaps and workmanship is great – thank you so much now we just need furniture 😁

Elatia S

Brilliant contact throughout from both Jamie & Gabrio, help & support at every step of the journey, and the build team were fantastic, they really grafted hard! I cannot fault this company, and best of all I have a beautiful garden room that is now my home hair salon. Thankyou so much everyone involved!


Victoria C

Adam & Gabrio please pass on my thanks to your installation team. The have done a great job on the build and the room is fantastic. Now all I have to do is paint it and move my stuff in but I’m very happy with it. Thanks to all of you!


Simon M

The end to end process of choosing, designing, ordering and installation has been a dream. My garden room is everything I wished for and thank you so much for making this so easy and helping my dream come true.


Cathy Z

Excellent service from start to finish. Great communication throughout the process. Construction team were courteous, efficient and hard working. Our garden building looks fabulous, we can’t wait to get it fitted out as a home gym!

Mark L

So excited and happy with my beauty cabin! I absolutely love it and can’t wait to be able to work in it! Highly recommend… very professional, done in a day , was the worst conditions weather wise too!

Abigail C

SdPh have just finished building me a gorgeous garden office/workshop. There was a few hiccups along the way but Sam made sure to get things sorted straight away. I’m super excited to start working out there! 

Nicole M

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to Sam and his team @ SDPH rooms for our stunning garden studio!
From the moment we got in touch with the guys they were so attentive and listened to what was important for our garden studio.
We’d already done our research and got in touch with other companies but SDPH definitely stood out from the rest, not just for their modern designs but also the price point and the quick turnaround. We had our garden studio delivered within a month, and built in one day. The builders arrived at 8am and left just before 6pm!
It has been a total game changer for us having the extra space in the garden, I can escape and wfh in the garden office which conveniently doubles up as a snug in the evenings.


Angelica L

Buy it now!!! Really really nice. I wanted a seperate store on the back and a bigger overhang and there designer Sandra created me my own in a few hours. Good price, good product good service.

Arthur T

I went for the 5m Lakeside, picked all the things I wanted and the company had it test built and installed within a couple of weeks, and installed it for free! Would highly recommend, very professional!

Tammy R

I LOVE IT!! Installed in 1 day and it is sooo nice to have a dedicated space to work from home, for covid and for the future! Garden looks miles better now as well – thanks Jamie & Gabrio!

Sarah K

Really nice new addition to the garden. I had to wait an extra week for a brighter blue colour that wasn’t one of the choices hence only 4 days. But quick service, really good comms from Adam our account manager. Just moved in my desk and a nice freestanding raditor!

Amit K

The smoothest process from start to end. From choosing the decoration i wanted, the order was placed the same day and they had a spare installation slot the next week! Great job SdPh, I love my cosy new office/hideaway from the kids!

Malcolm D

Very reliable company, quality product, hassle free it!

Sheila H

I cannot fault SdPh from start to finish.

Pre sale: I was guided through the process on the phone by a really helpful team. Lots of options to choose from and I paid over the phone with my credit card to help spread the payments over the year.

Post sale: One of the team kept me informed on how the test construction in their workshop was going and double checked photos of my patio for the delivery. We agreed a date which I had to push back 1 day for personal reasons which they accomodated.

Install: They built the entire thing within a day. (although someone came back the next day to replace one of the faulty light bulbs) All the electrics are seamless and I just plug it in every morning with the cable provided into my garage plug socket.

It looks really high quality, too early to see how the product weathers over time, but they give a 10 year warranty (and I have added a waterproof coating to all the wood to help keep it looking nice! Thanks SdPh Team! 

Meshack S

Having seen competitors’ offering, I was blown away by what Sam & the team had to offer. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend their services. Very reassuring seeing the pre-build pics!

Adam W

I went for the smallest option without any of the extra electrics or additional windows. It looks perfect but I wish I had choosen to have the electrics now and I am told they cannot retro-fit them which is rather annoying?!
