"It was great to have built Video Production Director Andy's 3m Hampton Stone studio with Golden Oak frames last year. From his email and photos we have just received, it sounds like he's still loving his garden studio:-
"I am living the dream with my Hampton studio. It looks great, and critically, it's very well insulated, storing the heat incredibly well. Very impressed with the installation process, it took less than a day and the guys were very polite and courteous. Their customer service has been amazing too, before and after the sale, always on hand to answer any questions. Compared to other studios on the market (and I did a lot of research) I'd say Sanctum are brilliant value for money and I'd highly recommend them." ... See MoreSee Less

Always lovely to receive positive feedback from our customers - thank you Paul from Colchester!
I cannot stress enough how great this company and its studios are, from start to finish the process was quick and easy. The three fitters arrived right on time on the wettest day of the year so far. They just got on with the job right away even though they were cold and wet and managed to get the job done ahead of schedule. If you have any doubts about buying one of these studios, just look at all of their good reviews, they speak for themselves. ... See MoreSee Less

We love this new 4.7m x 3.5m Contemporary Studio with bespoke 1m overhang installed this week in the beautiful village of Parbold. A Western Red Cedar deck of 1m was added and flush downlights inside and in the overhang. The interior finish will be completed with a plastered and painted interior. Lots of light floods inside through Slide and Swing doors and two fixed full height windows. We are pretty sure Les and Maggie will soon be enjoying a G & T in the sun on their decked area! Big thanks go out to 3 of the Sanctum team who not only worked hard in the heat but who had to endure a horrendous trip home with a normal 45 minute journey turning into a 6 hour trip. ...

Looks great 👍🏻
Amanda contacted Sanctum back in March after speaking to a number of alternative suppliers and visiting the Ideal Home Exhibition. We were delighted that Sanctum was Amanda's choice for building her garden room and this 3.6m x 3.5m Contemporary Studio with overhanging roof was installed at the end of April. Amanda was so pleased - "Thank you so much for everything, the lads did an amazing job turning things around so quickly and they were all very friendly and approachable". ... See MoreSee Less

The rain finally stopped in Barnes for the installation of Alistair's 3m x 2.4m Hampton Studio with Western Red Cedar panel. It was a tight squeeze to the left but just look at it sat there at the top of the garden! ... See MoreSee Less

The sun has since come out in Barnes, and Alistair and family are delighted with their Hampton studio! Ordering through Sanctum was a great experience - from them putting me in touch with a recent local buyer whose studio I was able to visit, to clear instructions from the very helpful Sam Cullen on planning installation in a tight corner, to the super-informative website with ample gallery photos to help make choices. Then on the day Gary, Anthony and Jack did a very efficient job despite the occasional shower, and got the studio up in less than six hours - with no problems and no mess afterwards. They were also flexible with a couple of space constraint issues, friendly, and helpful with their advice on maintenance. Most importantly, we now have a wonderful little studio at the bottom of our garden! It's early days yet, but this looks like a great product at a great price - and we can thoroughly recommend Sanctum and the Hampton.😀
Thank you Michael for this fabulous review. We are delighted you are so pleased with your new Hampton Studio. Michael opted for the 3m model and it was up in record time. As soon as it was in place Michael emailed Sanctum HQ with his feedback:
Just to say that we're very pleased. Your team were amazing, and really nice too. We're really impressed and will get painting later on today. Safe to say we love it and you'll be heartily recommended whenever we get the opportunity. All the best, Michael ... See MoreSee Less

Great to hear back from May in Surrey who is using her Contemporary Studio, installed in 2017, as a gym. May opted for a 4.8m x 3m cubed studio with lots of glazing and some Western Red Cedar decking. How lovely to hear that "I’m always recommending you! As my personal trainer puts it when he walked in , ‘Now this, is a game changer’. We love it, a wonderful and functional addition to our garden. ... See MoreSee Less

We love Buffy and Mick's 5.4m x 3.5m Contemporary Studio with overhanging roof. With it's 3.6m French doors, side opening window this studio does look very special. This is what they said:
"Hi there Sam, just to follow nick’s email, the studio is fab. Gary and his team were wonderful, and they worked so hard. It was a real shame that it rained that day, but it didn’t deter them.
I’m really looking forward to moving in and will send a photo when we are installed"
"I’ve just been into our finished studio for the first time. We’re very pleased with the result and would like you to pass on our thanks to Gary and the team for their excellent (and speedy) work.
We would be happy to recommend your services to others.
Thanks again" ... See MoreSee Less

Last week it was a busy one for team Sanctum with Hampton Studios being installed in Surrey and Somerset. Trudy loves her 3m model and is looking forward to getting the drums in there. Alison was really happy that we could squeeze her in for April as she was looking to have her 2.4m model as soon as possible. She too is really pleased and commented on our "efficient delivery and installation'' and "helpful and friendly team!" ... See MoreSee Less

Rainy Brighton was the destination for this lovely 3m x 2.4m Contemporary Studio with EPDM cubed roof. The interior was plasterboarded ready for the customer to finish it themselves. Flush inset downlights and a dimmer switch were added with a slimline heater to provide a little heat for those cooler days. Becky and Andy could not be happier and as soon as the team had left we received this:
"I would like to send a big thanks for the most amazing job the team did. From the moment they arrived (on time), until the moment they departed (ahead of time), they were magnificent. Really lovely chaps all of them, and what a brilliant job. Even though your guys were here on the only inclement day for the last few weeks it did not deter them. in fact I think they preferred the rain to the sun…. There was a great atmosphere, and a few little extra bits were taken in full stride. It was a great pleasure to have them all here, and a wonderful garden room now sits proudly in our back garden. Please pass on or gratitude to all the chaps.
Big thanks too go to Andy not only for this great testimonial but also for being Top Southern Tea Maker. Ever. ... See MoreSee Less

We love Andy and Vicky's 5.4m x 3m Contemporary Studio with overhanging roof and French doors. An internal partition and external side door were also added to house a storage area.. Sounds like they love it just as much as we do:
"Just wanted to say a huge thank you to you, Gary & the team for planning & installing our lovely studio. To say we’re pleased with it is an understatement. Everyone who has seen it, including our garden designer, is highly envious & a few have said they are going to look into getting one too. Thanks also for being so flexible with working around the landscaping work, it was much appreciated. We would readily recommend Sanctum to anybody. 😊 ... See MoreSee Less

This week has been a challenging week for our amazing Sanctum team in Birmingham. After not one, but two van break-ins they still managed to get this studio up and looking fabulous. We were contacted by Tom back in September - he knew exactly what he wanted and when he wanted it so we were happy to book his installation for 6 months later. Tom's 3 x 2.4m Contemporary Studio with overhanging roof now stands proud in his garden and this is what he said:
"Brilliant garden studios and fantastic company! Sam and the team at Sanctum were great. Excellent communication throughout the design and build process. The building team were friendly, professional and very diligent in getting the studio completed. The build quality of the studio is very high and it's a perfect addition to our garden. The new studio is fantastic - Chris and Anthony did a brilliant job. Many thanks for all your help". ... See MoreSee Less

Amazing company, they installed our studio in 2012 and it’s still stunning.
The Sanctum team are really excited to have recently installed our newest garden office locally – the Quad Pod. This prototype was installed for Michelle in Chorley and she is absolutely loving it. We’ve got a couple of tweaks to make and then we’ll be officially launching this fantastic new studio. Keep following us for further information but in the meantime please do let us know what you think… ... See MoreSee Less

I love my pod.. I work from it every day. Even on the coldest of days it’s still toasty and warm. Its got electricity, Wifi, and all the mod cons... It’s the perfect place to work, nestled in to the top terrace of my garden. I then simply shut the door, and walk the short walk home, and leave it all behind me for the day.. I couldn’t have asked for better! Xx
Looks amazing! Well done guys
Ooh i like this
We love this week's installation in Preston with it's bespoke roof and features. Mr P wanted something quite specific so we came up with this bespoke 6m x 3.5m Contemporary Studio design. The customer is absolutely delighted and loves his new garden room. ... See MoreSee Less

The team are in the North this week - first stop Middlesborough for this 3m Hampton Grey with opening window at the front. Neil is super pleased with his new garden room and this is what he had to say: "just a note to say that Anthony and the guys were absolutely fantastic. Highly professional, tidy and a credit to your team. I am really pleased with the office and the service and I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Sanctum Garden Studios to others. Thanks Neil and enjoy your garden studio! ... See MoreSee Less

Margaret from Devon is thrilled with her new 3.5m x 5.4m Contemporary Studio with overhanging roof. For the perfect fit the Sanctum team built this one with the roof sloping in a different direction. UPVC French doors with an additional single door and extra windows were added to the front and sides and the studio interior was given a plasterboard finish ready for Margaret's plasterer to skim and paint. After a muddy two days this gorgeous studio was ready. ... See MoreSee Less

It's been a long time Facebook! Things have been a little crazy at Sanctum HQ and for the installation team who have certainly been doing the miles up and down the country over the last couple of months. It's been a very busy start to the year and 2019 looks to continue in that way with only a couple of installation slots remaining until May. Here's a selection of our most recently installed studios. We love them all! ... See MoreSee Less

Jodie Wellings check out this company, comes recommended from a friend 🙂 x
We love this 5.4 x 3m Contemporary Studio with overhanging roof just installed in Nantwich. James opted for the new Easifold doors - a cross between sliders and bifolding doors with additional fixed and opening windows. The customer looks pretty happy with the studio too! ... See MoreSee Less

When Sebastian originally made contact in April this year he had narrowed it down to two garden room suppliers. In May he made his decision to opt for the other supplier based on price. Sadly things didn’t pan out for Sebastian with this company and we were approached again in August with an urgent requirement for a 2.4m garden room. Sebastian chose a 2.4m x 2.4m Hampton Grey Studio and needed it installing as soon as possible. We were delighted that Sebastian had come back to us and he too was equally delighted that we could fit him in:-
“Having been previously and repeatedly let down by another company who were meant to be building me a garden office, I finally ran out of patience and decided to look for someone with more credibility to build me an office, which is when I came across Sanctum Garden Studios. Sam was very accommodating and sympathetic to the fact I had recently been twice let down at the last minute and found me the first available slot for my 2.4m by 2.4m Hampton studio to be built. All correspondence was very polite and professional, and Sanctum did everything they could to accommodate any requests that I had. The 2 man team arrived at 9am and by 3pm they had already packed up and left! I must say that before the office came I was a little nervous if the 2.4m by 2.4m size was going to be big enough, but now I am in it definitely is, easily. With just me and my desk in there, and some drawers there is comfortably enough room. Heating and cooling was also a big point as I will use the office 5 days a week all year round, but so far it has been easy to hear with a 400w electric panel heater and if it gets too warm then just having the door slightly open sorts that out – it is very comfortable. All in all I am very pleased.” ... See MoreSee Less

Great news if you are thinking of purchasing a garden studio for 2019 – we will be holding our 2018 prices for all bookings taken up until the end of December this year - and your installation can take place at any time in 2019! And for all January installations you will get an additional discount of £250.
Sanctum’s last price increase was well over a year ago but alas our suppliers have been steadily increasing their prices so we have to pass this on from January 2019.
You will see our studios across the UK from Inverness to the Isle of Wight and even in France and we still believe we have one of the greatest value, best quality garden room ranges out there. Just take a look at our testimonials which speak for themselves.
For a full price breakdown or further details please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your requirements or any initial questions. Or if you’d rather talk please call Sanctum HQ at 01204 460450. ... See MoreSee Less

Duncan and Diana in Leicester love their artists’ studios – one each with an interconnecting door! We think their studio(s) look fantastic in their newly landscaped garden. To fully maximise their available garden space and to ensure that they each had enough room they chose a 7.2m x 3.5m Contemporary Studio with overhanging roof and two sets of French doors making it easy to enter their own studio. The top half of the internal door was glazed to add further light, and so they can of course see each other! ... See MoreSee Less

It's always lovely to get great feedback and we love sharing this from artist Jacqueline in Bradford Upon Avon who seems to be very happy with her Sanctum Garden Studio! Jacqueline's new art space is a 3m x 2.4m Hampton Grey and she is already making good use out of it.
"Chris and Anthony were lovely, and so efficient, please thank them again for me. My partner, a surveyor, came to see the studio on Tuesday evening, bringing his electrician friend who is going to sort out the power in the next couple of days. They were both very complimentary and the electrician made a comment about how well the electrics were set up - something about it being correct and that people often get it wrong . (Sorry I don’t recall exactly what he said, the technical details being outside my knowledge anyway! Point being that they were both impressed!)
I wanted to see the studio up and get a feel for it before making final decisions about kitting it out. I have now almost decided on shop-fitting style wall storage for my art materials and a custom made wall easel that will hold different sized canvases. Very best wishes, Jacqueline

It's been a busy October for the Sanctum team with installations across the UK from Berkshire to Wiltshire, Essex to Hertfordshire and Surrey. November is just as crazy with visits to Norfolk, Cheshire and Yorkshire. We are gearing up for 2019 with an exciting new range and have just confirmed one installation for next March!
In the meantime we've got lots of photos to share - the first ones are of Gavin's studio in Reading. Gavin chose a 3m x 2.4m Contemporary Studio with EPDM rubber roof, our new Slide and Swing doors (a great concept being a cross between bifolds and sliders) and an opening window. Gavin sourced his own plasterer to skim and paint the interior after opting for a plasterboard finish. Thanks Gavin for your feedback: "The Sanctum Studios team delivered and erected our studio without any of the last minute problems that I had anticipated. They worked quickly and efficiently to get our studio installed and the finished job looks great. Thank you so much" ... See MoreSee Less
