Our Process

When you buy a garden room from Contained Living, you are in the driving seat throughout the design process. Your dedicated Customer Success Manager will guide you through the design process to ensure your garden room is exclusively bespoke to you.

  • Survey

  • Design

  • Manufacture

  • Build

  • Use

Assessing your needs

The first step in creating your ideal garden room is to understand your needs. When we receive your enquiry, a member of our sales team will contact you to discuss your needs in a bit more detail and arrange a site survey to assess any special requirements such as foundations and logistics.

Upon completion of the site survey, we will prepare a quotation along with a detailed proposal explaining the key features of your garden room.

Your garden room, your way

Once you have accepted our quotation and made your Design Payment, you will be assigned a Customer Success Manager who will be your point of contact throughout the journey of creating your exclusive garden room.

The Customer Success Manager will discuss the design options with you to ensure your garden room is designed to fulfil your exact needs.

You will be able to customise everything from the size and layout of your garden room to the cladding, interior finishes and even locations of electrical accessories.

Once you are happy with your garden room design, we will send you a design pack including:

  • 3D renders of the exterior and interior
  • Floor plans
  • Elevation drawings
  • Mood board showing your design options
  • Technical specification

Along with your design pack, we will send you a digital Authority to Proceed (ATP) certificate for digital signature. We require this to be signed prior to commencing manufacture.

Precision engineering

Once we receive sign off for your design, we will start the manufacturing process and ordering materials from our supply chain.

We will send you a manufacturing schedule with key dates and will keep you updates on the manufacturing process and photos at milestones.

2 weeks before completion of manufacturing, we will contact you to arrange a delivery date and commencement of site installation.

Elite craftsmanship

Our installation team typically comprises a team of 3 who will lead the build process. Although the size of the team will vary based on the size of the garden room and site-specific conditions.

For certain aspects of the work, we may use tradesmen from our trusted supply chain but worry not, we conduct a thorough vetting process on our supply chain, to ensure they are qualified, experienced and competent.

During the build process, our Installation Lead will be you point of contact on site. On the first day of the build, the Installation Lead will introduce himself and the installation team then talk you through the build process. The Installation Lead will verbally discuss daily progress and any issues with you at the end of each day (if you are available) and we will issue a status report at the end of each day with photos and a list of activities for the next day.

Throughout the build process, our installation team will conduct a daily clean up and will endeavour to minimise mess, undue noise and disruption.

Our installation team will be dressed professionally in Contained Living branded clothing and will conduct themselves respectfully at all times.

Upon completion of the build, our Installation Lead and Customer Success Manager will conduct an inspection the garden room with you, showing you how to use key features and allowing you to identify any issues or concerns which will form a snag list.

During the inspection, any snags, issues, defects and/or comments will be recorded on a digital inspection app, which will be signed by the Installation Lead and Customer Success Manager, who will also request you to sign.

Your place to live, work or play

After the Build Completion Certificate has been signed off and keys handed over, we will issue a Building User Guide (BUG). This guide will contain details on how to use your garden room and any systems or components installed within it. The guide will also contain records of each stage, including the various stage sign-off certicates, receipts of payment and a warranty certificate.

Any agreed upon snags that can be rectified immediately will be cleared then and there. We will make arrangements for any snags that cannot be cleared on the spot.
