Need Additional Space at Home?

Introducing the Universal Containers Garden Room.

Universal Containers designs and builds bespoke shopping container conversions, all unique to individual specifications. Now, we’ve launched our latest conversion project to the public – the garden office.

It’s no secret that space is a luxury in your home, and it’s not always possible to transform a spare room into an office environment that is fit for purpose. However, the garden offices we’re converting offer a cost-efficient, easy solution to this problem, giving you the opportunity to create a garden office out of the home but close enough for convenience.

How Would You Use Yours?

A lot of people argue that a shipping container isn’t suitable for an actual home but when it comes to outbuildings, such as garden offices, people up and down the country are jumping on the container bandwagon! As a drastically cost-effective alternative to a home extension, you can choose a more casual, open design with a very low investment in comparison – a no brainer if you’re looking for extra space.

The process to arranging the conversion of your very own garden office is simple – purchase our most popular shipping container – a 20ft used cargo container – and put your own personal stamp on the conversion works to create an innovative, personalised garden office unit!

Do I Need Planning Permission?

For the most part, you do not need planning permission for a container garden office in your garden. Where planning law is concerned, container garden offices are effectively temporary buildings and do not have permanent foundations, like your house or conservatory does. However, as a general rule, you would need to seek planning permission if:

  • You live in a conservation area
  • Your home is a listed building
  • You wish to locate your garden office within 5 metres of your home
  • Your office will take up more than 50% of your garden space
  • You want to locate your garden office between your home & the road outside your home EG. in your front garden

It may be the case that if you answer yes under any of these circumstances, you might not require planning permission, although it’s always best to check with your local authority.
