This garden room / cabin was designed as a two room space; a small space for a home office and music room and the larger glazed end space as an occasional family hang-out. The cabin is 7.5m x 3m, designed to fit perfectly into the customers unused garden area.
The home office / music room end of this cabin was clad in a very durable metal standing seam panelling and incorporates hand made double glazed windows. We also installed heating, data and power.
Another look at our home office for Ed and Fi. The whole project included building the decking, raised veg beds and the handmade fire pit, crafted from an old gas bottle.
We used British waney larch cladding for this large 6.5m x 5m cabin. We have designed and made this space to be used for creativity, yoga and the kids Xbox! The added decking area captures the westerly sun.

Visible beams and a beautiful light poplar plywood have been used in the design by Cabinmakers. All of the interior finishing was handmade by us, including the bespoke sink unit for John's clay and creative work
We design all of our fixtures for our cabins and garden rooms and craft these ourselves. This special sink unit was designed to reuse John's Belfast sink (minus the plants) and has a hot water heater and washer tap for his clay works
Tongue and groove radiata pine plywood boards were used throughout the interior of this cabin. We also build a sound proofed double sided storage wall that separates the two room cabin.

A double ended home office space for Ed and Fi. Both work regularly from home and needed a space to get away from the kitchen table working. The kids also love it!
The raised veg beds and fire pit come into their own for the children and adult gatherings.

Beyond our expectations!

There is a touch of magic at the bottom of our garden … Matt and Ed have applied their very special fairy dust to transform an area previously occupied by an old bomb shelter, compost heap and junk collection. We now have a beautiful honey coloured garden room, with a bike shed on one side and a massive log store at the back, all covered by one simple roof. The team managed extremely well to combine my multiple needs into one elegant design and have followed this with quality construction, way beyond my expectations. As much of the fabrication takes place in Matt and Ed’s workshop to reduce time on site, the cabin takes shape very quickly once it arrives, with separate sections being fitted together with impressive precision. We are very happy with the result!

Absolutely fantastic experience - highly recommend

5
Cabinmakers have just finished building a garden office for us in Backwell. We are delighted with it. One of the things that really makes Cabinmakers stand out is the way they work with you to design something very bespoke. The space we had for the cabin was a bit awkward but they were able to design a cabin that made a virtue of the uneven ground we had in our garden. Not only that, but they used their artistic eye to come up with a whole range of details that make our cabin feel that extra bit special (such as a gorgeous window seat, ultra stylish lighting and statement tiling for one of the outside walls).

Cabinmakers were also great to work with. Their information was exceptionally clear, they kept us up to date with the works and they were very easy to share a space with while the build was taking place.

Finally, Cabinmakers value sustainability in all that they do. This was really important to us and it's clearly really important to Matt and Ed.

Cabinmakers are brilliant and have delivered a top quality, beautifully designed cabin

5
Cabinmakers - Matt and Ed - are an absolute joy to work with; - creative and with great ideas on how to improve my original rough ideas and sketches. They have delivered a cabin that is even better than my original expectations. The quality of materials, craftsmanship an attention to detail is brilliant, and their commitment to low carbon, sustainable construction principles aligns with what I was looking for. These guys are an expert partner with whom you work with to realise your vision. They keep you involved in progress at every step, so you can make the best choices of products and materials that meet your requirements. For sure, they are not cheap - but quality and excellence has a cost and the end product is genuine value for money in my view - a beautifully designed and built cabin that will be a pleasure to use. So if you're looking for a new garden room / cabin or similar then I would highly recommend them.

A great space delivered on time and on budget

5
We asked Cabinmakers to build us a cabin in the garden for a variety of uses including a home gym, art space, and home cinema.

We were impressed with the process from start to finish. The use of a shared design board really allowed us to get across the look and feel we were after. This combined with the CAD designs helped us to visualise the space and make tweaks in the early stages. What we liked particularly is how this design then translated to the use of appropriate materials taking into account our preference for groundscrews over a concrete base and timber windows / cladding instead of PVC.

When onsite Ed and Matt were patient yet professional; happy to explain to us the process as well as involve us when decisions were needed. We felt very comfortable with them around and found the combination of Matt's design and project management background along with Ed's carpentry and attention to detail left us with a fantastic product that we will use for years to come.

First class service from Cabinmakers

5
We received a first class service from Cabinmakers (Matt & Ed). Their professionalism from consultancy through to design was excellent. Their vast experience and knowledge with design and materials ensured that their proposal was aligned with our brief, beautifully designed and within budget. We're really excited about the next stages once our main house works are completed! I would highly recommend Matt & Ed to anyone who's looking for a professional yet friendly company to build their dream cabin and promise you that you won't be disappointed.
