A Country Mile from Your Average Garage

Create Extra Space Over your Oak Garage


Have you got a bit of space you have been eyeing up for a potential garage or home office? Why not have both!

If you are looking to add space without extending onto your house or moving, a garage with a room above creates the perfect solution.

Our Room-Over Standard Garage range provides an envelope for all sorts of uses:


  • Garage
  • Workshop
  • Games Room
  • Man Cave
  • Studio
  • Leisure Area
  • Home Office
  • Spare Room / Living Quarters
  • Storage

Here at Country Buildings HQ we have our office located in none other than one of our very own standard Room-Over Garages!

Both the ground floor and 'room over' are used as office space and create a perfect working environment. Using habitable specifications, the structure exceeds building regulations and provides a comfortable atmosphere with minimal heating, even in the winter.

Many customers have turned the upstairs space of their garage into living quarters or home offices, gaining valuable extra space from a relatively small footprint. See how we have used our space in the image below.

Oak Garage with a Room Over


A Country Buildings 'Room Over' Standard Garage range starts at 6m Deep on The Little Gloucester extending to 6.3m on The Gloucester garage; this provides great space below and maximises the available space above. New models in our Room Over range include The Winchester garage and The Portchester garage.

Bespoke Design


The benefits of using a standard design are found in both time and cost efficiencies. With the drawings done, the necessary structural calculations made, workshop and site plans all prepared, we take all the design side of a bespoke building out of the cost and save you time in the process.
If however you find that one of our standards inspires you move towards a more bespoke design, to suit specific needs, we have a team of designers who can deliver whatever specification it is you are after.

If you would like to see a room over outbuilding in the flesh, come along and visit the Oakwrights Country Buildings office Monday – Friday (Saturdays available by appointment) and have a tour of our state of the art production facilities and discuss your ideas for your project with one of the team. If you don’t have the time to make it to Glorious Herefordshire, our local Design consultants are on hand to visit you.
