Art Studio, Auchterarder

Our client approached us to build a garden room to maximise the time they could spend in their garden, which benefits from sweeping views of the Perthshire hills. They wanted to create a dedicated and peaceful outdoor space,
flooded with natural light, where painting and yoga could be enjoyed. They were also keen to incorporate a bespoke and spacious decking area to enjoy socialising with friends and family and a flat screen inside for movie nights and sports events.

  • Architect: JML Garden Rooms
  • Size: 13 SQ.M


On the site of the proposed garden room was an old hen house which had to be removed. Due to the sloping gradient of the site, it was necessary to dig out the hillside and build a small retaining wall to the rear.

Our client was insistent that the garden room should reflect the traditional features of their home. To deliver this we sourced reclaimed Scottish slates and cast iron down pipes to ensure the modern structure of the garden room would not look out of place next to their home.

Services Delivered

We carried out all works, from the landscaping and civils works necessary to prepare the site, to the construction and finishing of the garden room. This was completed with a reclaimed Scottish slate roof, cast iron downpipes, triple glazed Aluclad windows and doors, Siberian larch cladding and a bespoke, curved deck in Millboard. Our skilled joiner fitted bespoke MDF wall cabinets and drying racks, which were then painted to store our client’s art materials and art work.

Our client was delighted with the finished product, which is now used as a multi-functional family space. She uses it daily for painting and yoga, her husband uses it as a man-cave to escape to and indulge his passion for sport and opera viewing on the flat screen TV, and her daughter found the space ideal to escape the bustle of the household and concentrate on her exam revision.
