We found Southwicks after looking online for both local and national suppliers of Log Cabins. At first we considered a self-build but this seemed like a daunting task, certainly compared with building a simple 6 x 8 shed anyway. Jon invited us to see a build in progress and we were sold there and then. At first the cost was more than we had budgeted for but the end-to-end service Southwicks provide enabled us to move straight in on completion.
We chose our own exterior lights and made additional personal choices like chrome handles inside and out (instead of gold), chrome spotlights, etc. and this was no problem for Jon and the team.
Thank you to Jon, Dave, Dan and Lee for giving us the little piece of New England we were looking for in our old English garden.

Jon and the team at Southwick's provided a great all-in-one service and were very responsive to our needs. The quality and speed of the construction were very good, we are very pleased with the final product and would happily recommend them to others.

Working from home and needing more space was my problem. Southwick’s solved it. I researched various companies on the internet and chose Southwick’s to provide a quotation for a number of reasons; the complete service offered, the fact that they are a local business and, above all, the testimonials to which I now able to add mine. From the time Jon first spoke to me and visited us at home, I knew I need look no further. The price for a complete service was in line with what I had anticipated. The complete service turned out to be just that. Beyond that was the pleasure of dealing with such charming and helpful people. Jon and his team were an absolute pleasure to have on site. I placed my order close to Christmas and the original time estimate given by Jon was that the building would be installed in January. However, much to my delight, Jon was able to bring the works forward and to complete the whole job in the week before Christmas. I am delighted with the finished product and the new working environment which It provides. I cannot recommend too highly.

We are so delighted with our Southwick's cabin.
Not only is it a joy to behold but it's so practical.
I'm already visualising all the seasons we'll be able to enjoy from our new room,
It looks like it belongs in the garden and just blends naturally with the surroundings,
I love the idea of a fully insulated outdoor retreat.
I'm sure everyone will want one before long!
It beats the expense and upheaval of a conventional extension and feels far more creative.
The Southwick's team ; Jon, David and Lee were hardworking, reliable, friendly and professional. It was clear they really love their work and take the upmost pride in building these beautiful cabins.
I would highly recommend them to anyone considering having one built.
Look no further!

We looked into a bunch of garden-office options and eventually went with Jon. He was clear about what he was going to provide, and once we agreed, got on with the task without much fuss. We now have a splendid garden office, constructed and decorated to a high standard. In all our dealings with Jon, he was friendly and amenable to accommodating changes to our schedule because of delays in removing trees, soil, etc. He also constructed a made-to-order small lean-to for regular shed storage behind the office space. We would not hesitate to recommend his skills to a friend.

"Southwicks insulated garden rooms has been amazing. From the first consultation to the finishing coat of paint they have surpassed all of my expectations. The workmanship is second to none and the speed in which the building was erected and finished was so much quicker than I had anticipated. Jon and his team were always exceptionally friendly and a pleasure to have around the property. Nothing was too much trouble and I would highly recommend them to anybody who is looking for an office for work or an additional room for their home."

' We are extremely pleased with the design and quality of our garden room and there was flexibility to suit our requirements. Choosing a design to suit the space was made much easier than expected and this was very straightforward. The work was carried out with minimal disruption. The finished product, both inside and outside, left us with nothing more to do than move in! Our friends and family have been very impressed and we could not be more pleased.'

Jacqui and I are very happy with the results and I wouldn’t be surprised if you get another local order on the basis of the feedback from our neighbours who are all very impressed. Your design service for a bespoke product that made the best of our space, the quality of the product and the way it was constructed so quickly with a minimum of fuss were all excellent.

We are absolutely delighted with our brand new garden office, and we can't wait to move in! When you first embark on choosing a supplier for your little dream retreat, it's hard to decide whether you ought to opt for a shell supplier and then engage with other contractors to do the fitting and finishing work. But the result of our choice and confidence in Jon's bespoke service, provided by him and his family team of Dave and Sophie, is now there for all to see. Setting an example to all, he turned up promptly when he said he would, and he and his team worked hard and skillfully throughout the week or so that was required to convert raw materials into a beautiful finished product. A very satisfying experience, both for us and for Southwicks, as I know Jon was pretty pleased with the result himself! Thanks again,

A very professional job
Unable to carry out the build ourselves due to medical reasons, we noticed Southwicks Garden Offices on the internet. We needed a building different than what was on offer by most other firms, so we approached Jon to design a bespoke log cabin to details we provided. He and his team came up exactly as we wanted for a price that was within our budget.The build took two weeks to complete and now we have our cabin, looking far better than we had hoped. The quote included base, fully insulated and equipped and ready to move into.What surprised us initially was that you specialise in kitting your buildings out with complete insulation to walls, ceiling and floor, electrics, heating, fully painted inside and out, double-glazed, all finished off with quality carpeting and guttering. A total solution within the quote. Jon, Dave, and not forgetting Sophie, your rock-steady handed painter, you can be proud of what you have achieved, especially since this was new ground for you all. I will be singing your praises to all of my relatives and friends, indeed to all those who wish to know, for some time to come.A highly professional job carried out by dedicated professionals - well done and thank you.Whoops - it would be remiss of me not to thank Rolfe (the cocker spaniel) for entertaining our two shelties over the same period.

To say that I am over the moon with the cabin that Jon and his team have built for me would be a understatement. From the start to finish it was a professional and well managed project. Nothing was too much trouble, even when I asked for a different than normal design in what seem to me a quite small space. This is a ‘can do’ company that I will have no hesitation in recommending. A big thank you to Jon and the team for making something that could have been stressful so stress free.

Many thanks to Jon and his team who did an excellent job. From the initial planning to the final construction everything went very smoothly and the work was completed ahead of schedule.
We are delighted with the result and making good use of the extra space. We would recommend Southwick’s to anyone that is looking for a garden office, a hobby “shack”, or just somewhere to sit and watch the birds in the garden!

Southwicks have just finished our new garden studio, and we are absolutely delighted with the results. Jon and his team have been really committed to the project from start to finish, keeping us well informed on progress/deliveries etc, and both listening and advising when it came to deciding on the design and finish.
We now have a practical work space that is attractive both inside and out, and much admired by any visitors! We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Southwicks.
