Aroha is the Māori term for 'Love'.

In New Zealand the term Aroha encompasses, 'Breath of Fresh Air' and 'The creative force of the spirit.'

This in essence is what we create in our clients’ gardens, We breathe new life into empty space for people to enjoy all year round. In addition no two projects are ever the same as our team’s creative imagination seeks to produce something truly special in each and every design we work on.

Aroha Escapes was formed in 2014. Originating from a local house builder we found that the bigger the home we built the more a client would be looking for a detached room at the end of their garden to be used for a yoga studio, office, gym or simply somewhere to relax in. Having seen the satisfaction of our clients at the end result of our joiners building the very first garden rooms the potential demand was recognised and Aroha Escapes was formed.

After many years of experience and having a established a great reputation for producing prefabricated garden rooms we have evolved into creating a wider range of projects including school classrooms, holiday accommodation and constructing new homes. Working closely with architects and engineers we strive to deliver the very best in modular buildings.

Based in Ayrshire, we have worked on residential and commercial projects across Scotland and developed a reputation for our professionalism and the superior quality of our work.

We aim to take away the stress of building your own modular project by handling the process from enquiry to planning and final construction with our very own expanding workshop team in Stevenston.

Frequently Asked Questions

Most frequent questions and answers

Absolutely not! Each garden room is bespoke and will be designed & built to your specifications. Our consultant will discuss the numerous options available.

Typically not. We’ve designed our garden rooms to fall within the Permitted Development Rights guidelines for Ancillary Buildings. Some restrictions may apply but our representative will review and discuss these at the site survey/consultation.

We offer galvanized screw piles, concrete slab and concrete/timber post options which all have their place. Most clients with relatively level gardens opt for the metal screw piles as they’re installed on day one of the build with little mess which allows for the erection of the base and walls on the same day.

You absolutely can! We can recommend a HETAS approved retailer/installer and work closely with them during the design and construction of your garden room.

We supply full electrics including the fuse box and connection to your main fuse box at no extra cost. All electrical work is completed and certified by our electrical subcontractor. We also offer upgraded lighting and ethernet connection options.

We offer our clients the choice of either composite (fibre cement board) or timber cladding. The fibre cement board comes in many colour choices and can be specified with wood grain effect or smooth. Timber options include IRO heat enhanced boards, Siberian Larch & Western Red Cedar. Most of our garden room clients prefer the composite cladding as it’s low maintenance and requires a simple soap and water wash.

Yes you can. We’re happy to discuss your ideas and pricing at the survey/consultation.

This is absolutely something that we can offer but will require a building warrant. This can be discussed at the consultation meeting.

You can but the design and construction will have to meet planning approval and the latest building regulations.

You certainly can. Our garden rooms are constructed with fully insulated walls, ceilings & floors, as well as double glazed doors and windows. Because our garden rooms come with full electrics as standard, you can include wall-mounted electric panel heaters, or an oil filled convector heater for additional warmth.

Not at all. Our team will review the profile of your garden and advise the appropriate foundation options.

Not at all! Because we offer a bespoke service, you can specify your desired shape at the consultation.

The walls and ceiling will be fitted with 12mm plasterboard and skim coat plastered ready for you or your decorator to add paint or paper.

Because everyone has different flooring preferences and there are thousands of options, we do not include finish flooring. We’ll install your supplied flooring upon our 22mm chipboard sub-floor at no additional cost. We’ll supply and install the MDF skirting board once we’ve installed the flooring. *Additional charges may apply for flooring other than vinyl click or laminate.

Absolutely you can! We offer composite decking that looks like real timber as well as your typical timber decking boards as options. The composite decking boards are maintenance-free and are available in numerous wood grain depths and colours.

The first step in the process is for one of our representatives to meet you at the location for the initial consultation. We’ll then create 3D renderings of your desired design and provide them to you with our detailed quotation.

Assuming you’re ready to proceed, then we’ll send over the contract for review and execution and provide you with a start-on-site date.

The size of the garden room ultimately determines the amount of time required to complete but our typical duration is rarely longer than two weeks.
