The perfect combination – a wooden garage with a carport and a garden house

Do you need more storage space at home? Or maybe you are looking for a place in your garden where to relax after a long day? But you also need to take care of your car? Wouldn’t it be nice to have a single timber structure for all of your needs? If so, a multipurpose garden building is what you are looking for! One of the most popular combinations of the multipurpose garden buildings includes a carport and a garden house added to a wooden garage. With a multipurpose garden building like this, you will get enough space to park your car, store your belongings and even have a place for your hobbies!

Garden house for hobbies or relaxation

If you have a hobby that needs an extra space or you just need a quiet place to concentrate, it is a good idea to expand your living space outside your house. A garden house is great at giving you that extra space you need for pursuing certain hobbies like playing music, painting, knitting, and woodworking. What else is great about having a garden house – you can leave all your equipment or painting tools in the garden house; therefore, you get more free space at home!

In turn, if you don’t have a hobby that requires a separate room, but you are looking for a place in your garden to spend time with your loved ones, use the garden house as an extra living space. Invite your friends for a cup of tea or throw a garden party – it is up to you how you choose to use your outdoor living space!

Garage for storage

A timber garage can serve for different purposes. In a multipurpose garden building with a garage and a carport, you can choose whether to use the garage area for parking your car or for storage! A garage is large enough for garden furniture, bikes, and even a scooter, but, if you need to store a lot more, you can install a garage storage system for your tools or a storage cabinet set for your belongings.

Carport for your car

If the garage area is the space you need for storage, then the carport is the place for your car! Just as good as a garage, the carport will provide the necessary protection for your car. In addition, on daily basis, a carport is definitely easier to use than a garage. No more struggle opening the doors when trying to park your car or rushing in the morning!

Extend your home into the garden – add a garden building to your house!

Nowadays a garden building – a summer house, a log cabin or a gazebo is placed in almost every garden. Depending on the needs of the inhabitants of the particular household, garden houses can be used in different ways. Some invest in a garden house to set up a guest house or gym, some – to extend their living area for everyday needs, creating a garden office or arranging for extra storage space. Mostly these garden houses are placed in the garden as separate timber structures which require appropriate insulation to serve as a proper living area. But have you ever thought about adding a garden building like a lean-to- veranda or a gazebo with glass sliding walls to your home in order to extend your living space? Read on to find out how to extend your home into the garden!

Functionality of a garden building

A garden building is a great investment for many reasons. Whether you tend to use it as a home office, a playroom for kids or a storage area, it will help you to extend your living space noticeably. The way you are going to use it is totally up to you – all you need to do is to decorate it according to the intended purpose!

Imagine how a garden building could ease up your everyday life if it would be attached to your home – for example, you’ll be able to go to your home office without ever leaving home!

What to consider?

The main thing to consider is whether you choose a closed or a semi-closed wooden structure as the extension to your house. If you choose a semi-closed garden building, like a gazebo, you will be able to fully use it only in the spring and summer. However, if you choose a lean-to veranda with glass sliding walls, it will add an all year round living space to your home.

In the case you are planning to add an extension to your home in the form of a lean-to veranda or a gazebo, you might have to apply for a planning permission. As the planning permission regulation may vary between municipalities, we advise you to contact your municipality, to find out all the details.

Are you ready to extend your living space in your garden? Take a look at the range of garden buildings at and find the perfect match for your house.


What to consider before buying a summerhouse

Have you found the summerhouse of your dreams? Are you going for a standard model or a bespoke design?  When you decide to invest in a garden building, there are many things you should consider, in order to achieve the result you were looking for. The most important, of course, is to decide how you are going to use the summerhouse – as a she shed, a home office or a lounge for your family and friends. You should also pay attention to different aspects of sizing, colour and the roof type. Keep reading our advice for buying a summerhouse to find out more!

Size and shape

First of all, when choosing a summer house for your garden, you must consider the size of the garden area where you want to erect your summer house. When you know where exactly you want to place the summerhouse, you can choose one that would fit your garden perfectly both regarding the size and shape. Remember that the right garden building can perfectly complement your garden’s theme!

Colour and type of roof

After the right size and shape have been chosen, select the colour and the roof type. When choosing the right colour, you can either just decide on your favourite one or match the colour of the summerhouse to the colour palette of your garden. Regarding the roof types – choose between the classic apex or pyramid roof, or go for a modern look with the asymmetric roof!

Thickness of walls

Another important aspect to consider is the thickness of timber walls. The standard wall thickness varies between 28mm and 44 mm. The thicker the timber walls you choose for your garden building are, the more solid your garden building will be; therefore, you will be able to enjoy it all year around!

Doors and windows

Doors and windows can affect the functionality and appearance of your summerhouse. Consider what type of windows and doors would you like to have, and if they can provide the security you need. You might want to consider having sliding glass walls to fully enjoy the view of your garden!
