The price of the garden studio will depend on its size, specification level, and whether you choose a modular design or
commission a custom design. There is no rule of thumb, buildings of size x will cost x number.
Normally, a small single-person studio with an area of about 2.4m x 2.4m square, with insulation, house-quality doors
and windows, and wires with sockets and lighting fixtures, starts at about $6,000, including VAT. You can expect a quality studio,
which you can use at this price all year round. You need to confirm with the supplier whether the price includes the basis. In some cases,
this is not the case, although the supplier will undertake the work, this is an additional cost.
The price has risen from this starting point; we recently saw a one-off garden studio designed by an architect for $90,000!
A budget between $13,000 and $20,000 will buy you a reasonably sized building with reasonable design features,
such as floor-to-ceiling glass, cedar facades, and plastered interiors.
Generally, you will pay a higher price for a garden studio with higher thermal insulation than a garden studio with
lower thermal insulation. Although the initial expenditure may be annoying, in the long run, it is worth it,
because you will be more comfortable working in the studio, and the cost of heating and cooling will be less.
Buying as much insulation material and glazed glass door as possible will be one of the key suggestions we provide.
When buying a garden studio, it’s not just the building you need to budget for. There are usually hidden costs,
such as delivery and connecting electrical equipment to the main power source.
We have compiled a guide to discuss the cost of budgeting when buying a garden studio.
