Leisure Room with Large Decking in Larch Wood

Siberian Larch Decking‘If you’re reading this testimonial, you’re probably at the precipice of making a supplier choice. There are three things we learnt on our journey which you may find helpful:

(1) Material selection is probably the most critical decision, and Norwegian Larch sits above any other option – trust us, we did a lot of research. It’s not cheap, but it gives the building a sustainable integrity that you will only feel once it’s up. If it’s good enough for the Norwegians…
(2) Its’ all about attention to detail, working with craftsmen who love their job, and will go the extra mile to get it right. It was a good decision not to go with under-floor heating, the insulation is so good even on a cold winter’s day – better than the house we live in.
(3) Push the limits of creativity – you’re likely only to do this once. The lovely thing about working with Nordic Wood, is the team don’t stick to the rule book – and this is what sets them apart.

The only thing which was frustrating, is they don’t discount. I guess you don’t need to when you’re good.

During the build we ate together, drank together and laughed together – and were fortunate to create something special which hopefully our kids kid’s can enjoy in the future. One word. Epic.”

Home Office

“I had decided to install a garden office and, after Home office web
researching options on the web, I attended a few exhibitions. 
A number of companies offered a rather impersonal sales approach and typically offered a standard product to very similar designs. I found Nordic Wood to be genuinely different in their approach to insulation which was an important aspect for me. Olaf was very knowledgeable and was able to work with me to design exactly what I wanted. Once I was happy with the design I paid what I considered to be a very competitive price.

Construction started on the date promised and the whole unit was built in a timely manner. The carpenters were friendly and courteous. The workmanship is excellent and, 18 months on, shows no design of deterioration. If I needed another building I wouldn’t bother going elsewhere.”

Garden Room web“We are thrilled with the bar and cinema room that Nordic Wood built for us.  We gave them a deadline for the rugby world cup opening and despite many changes by us they were flexible and met the deadline.  The quality of the build is exceptional and the guys who did the work were not only the nicest, friendliest, most patient gentlemen who were an absolute pleasure to have at my house, they also took such incredible pride in their work.  I cannot recommend them highly enough and I want to build another Nordic Wood room in my garden just so that I can deal with them again.”

Garden office and recreational room

It was built to our exact specifications and integrates perfectly into our small garden and has added a whole new dimension to our living space. The bi-fold doors are wonderful in Summer as they open the room up to become part of the garden. The team were fantastic throughout the entire process – design, build and aftercare; nothing was too much trouble and they even fitted a behemoth dog flap for our great dane. We have had our cabin for over a year now so it has been tried and tested in all weathers and the insulation is fabulous so it is a cosy useable space all year round. Our cabin has been built to a very high standard with great attention to detail by skilled craftsmen and the end result is really fantastic! Thank you Nordic Wood!”

Office & Leisure Room

“We urgently needed some more space in our house but didn’t have the time nor the money to do an extension. We looked into garden rooms as they do not need planning permission and can be erected very quickly. We spoke to a few companies in our search, but Nordic Wood came across as the most genuine, accommodating and reasonably priced of them all. We had 7m x 3.5m cedar clad building erected. Throughout the build, the guys were brilliant. Nordic Wood accommodated some minor changes we made along the way with no hesitation and we were delighted with the finished project. We use the building every day. It has multi purpose use – an office; an art audio, an exercise room, a TV room and we have frequently had people stay the night in it.  We’ve added value to our house and it has been frequently admired. In fact two of our friends went ahead and commissioned Nordic Wood after seeing ours!   Thank you Kris, Olaf and the team at Nordic Wood”

“Right from the start of meeting the team at Nordic Wood we became aware that this company was not only very professional, but that they totally understood what would be needed to make the end dream possible. There are a lot technical facts that go into the building of the cabin, with the insulation and the construction, all of this is taken care of with the teams excellent knowledge. There is a lot of research that has gone into the timber treatments and the type of material that are used within the layers of the walls, floor and ceiling. They have their own planning officers to make sure that all goes very smoothly.

They have a team of carpenters that come to the site to construct the cabin, these men were extremely professional as well, working through all weathers to complete the cabin within the time scales promised. The team were always at hand to ask any questions, always at the end of a phone making it easy to be in constant contact. Their relaxed approach is second to none in as much as nothing was too much trouble. We have finished our project now, and have had a visit from the Director to make sure we are happy. And indeed we are, very happy.”

A Garden Office and Family Room

“In May this year Nordic Wood were commissioned to design and constructkelly web
a 5m X 3m garden office and family room. From the start I was impressed by their knowledge of the products available and how they could use this to best suit what we were looking for. There was no “hard selling” and Nordic were open to suggestion we made. Installation commenced in July and we were very happy with the work ethic and behaviour of Nordic’s team. Having construction works undertaken at home can be a stressful experience; this was the opposite. The team were constantly mindful of where they were and always keep the place tidy as they worked. Even our neighbours remarked how impressed they were! The end product is of high quality and meets all our requirements. It’s a great space and has provided an extension of our house into the garden. The end to end process Nordic offer is very professional; being a family run business they take their customers very seriously and we were very satisfied with the result. Thanks Olaf and the team!”

“Working from home can be challenge for anyone, but when you have heavy machinery, garment rails and a large pattern cutting table  to accommodate as I do it can be almost impossible. So a garden studio seemed like the perfect solution and after looking at a lot of companies I chose Nordic Wood for the build. Both because I liked their down to earth honest approach and because they were able to customise their garden room to suit my crooked space.  

Everyone I have been in contact with at Nordic Wood was a real pleasure to deal with. Tess and Olaf were patient in answering my many questions and the carpenters were all extremely polite, cheerful and professional. Dan and Johan who did the bulk of the project have such attention to detail and the studio is absolutely beautiful as a result.

The studio is bright and airy, the heat pump works a treat and the wood features are perfect. It has been a joy to work in this space and I feel more energised and productive as a result – it has exceeded my expectations!. Now that spring has finally made an appearance and I have spent time in the garden I have discovered the added bonus of the studio enhancing the look and atmosphere of the garden too. A real beauty inside and out and completely worth the investment. I can highly recommend Nordic Wood – in fact my neighbours have already placed an order after they saw the great work they did for me.”

A Nordic Room to fit an angled gardenFront

“Having been looking for a suitable company to build our garden cabin for sometime, we were delighted when we met Olaf and Tess at the Grand Designs Exhibition ExCel Centre. Due to the irregular shape of our garden, the cabin needed to a one off  “bespoke” design which proved impossible for other companies to manufacture. After giving them a simple plan, Nordic Wood came up with technical drawing, complete breakdown of materials and a competitive price. Once a site visit had been made, construction started by their friendly and efficient carpenter teams. Despite challenging weather conditions within a few weeks our cabin was finished and we are extremely pleased with end product. We would highly recommend Nordic Wood”

“From the first phone call  to discuss our requirements, through several site visits to assess if our plans were viable, and on to to construction and finishing I have nothing but praise for the company and those involved in it. During the initial contacts there was never any “hard sell”, only a presentation of the service provided and at no time did we feel in any way pressured into anything we were unhappy with. We worked closely with Olaf and Tess who ensured we fully understood the process, the costs involved and the timetable of works.

Once our requirements were finalised, professional drawings were produced which allowed to confirm the cabin would meet our expectations before any commitment was made. Once construction began, the workmen were friendly, conscientious and respectful of our property and any issues which arised (few did) were dealt with without fuss to our satisfaction. The electrical sub contractor used was also very efficient and pleasant to work with. The after sales support was also first rate, the advantage of working with a smaller company being that you get to know the person on the end of the phone. We are extremely pleased with the end result which has enhanced our property considerably. For someone who usually will not undertake a project of this kind with out a known recommendation I could not be happier with our choice of Nordic Wood to build our cabin. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone thinking of a similar undertaking and can say it has been a pleasure to get to know them.”
