Updated: Mar 3, 2020

When you need a quiet space to escape from everyday stress, a place in your garden that’s flexible enough to turn into an office, kid’s playroom or even rent out on AirBnB! Inoutside’s room are beautifully designed and fully-functioning studios to suit work or lifestyle option that offers a warm winter haven or a cool summertime retreat. The possibilities for your backyard room are endless, here are 15 uses for an Inoutside room:


For the growing number of people now working from home either full or part-time, our multi-purpose provide a comfortable, secure and professional working environment removed from the usual distractions associated with working from home. You can now separate your office from your home to regain more space in your house, while bringing balance back into your life. By day, heat and light can be controlled using solar-sensitive glazing or fitted blinds. Temperature controlled interiors can also be created, with optional climate control featuring air conditioning and heating. All utilities can be connected—water, waste, electrical, telecommunications, Foxtel and broadband internet.


With property prices rising, creating more space in your home as cost-effectively as possible means a contemporary and inexpensive granny flat could be a viable option for your new backyard room. Our innovative designs provide a modern twist on granny flat designs and can be tailored so you can achieve the ideal space to enrich your lifestyle.


Imagine being able to rent out your room and provide your guests with an unforgettable stay? Whether it's in your own backyard or set in the country as a rural retreat, let your visitors feel at home in a comfortable environment and you get to make a bit of extra income too!


The kids are getting bigger but the house isn't? Maybe you have an aspiring drummer, or need somewhere for your teenage to hang out with their friends? This insultated soundproof room provides a great teenage retreat where you know they're close by in a safe environment.


Offering more privacy than a public leisure centre, and more tailored to your needs than a gym membership, your own home gym is an ideal investment in your continuing fitness schedule. Constructed from strong steel base there is no need to worry about future sagging from weighted gym equipment. And your room provides a cool space for working-out as it is designed to be thermally efficient with optional air- conditioning and bi-fold doors that open into your garden.


Tripping over the games consoles and toys inside the house? Create a space just for the younger kids. If you need a games room to encompass a number of activities (maybe table tennis, electronic games or Lego), then this is it.


Entertainment rooms have become the norm in most houses. This is a space to relax and unwind in your own garden setting, and sit back and watch your favourite movies and sporting events on surround-sound cinema. This is the room that caters for all your family’s media needs.


If your hobby or career follows an artistic path, our backyard retreats offer a balance of light, design and facilities to inspire you. With optional large retractable bi-fold doors, create harmony by letting the light and fresh air into your workspace. We can also incorporate an optional small sink facility and/or toilet.


The kids are on their PlayStations or tablets, your partner’s on the internet working or just surfing. Is the fight to get on-line becoming a real chore? If so, then why not create your own garden computer room. Secure wireless broadband internet connection is available.


Create your own sanctuary away from everyday distractions. Grab a good book, a cup of tea and relax in your very own library.


An outdoor music room offers the perfect place to practice or simply listen to your favourite music. Or if you need a soundproofed music room or recording studio, our buildings offer excellent soundproof construction features as standard, with optional double-glazed windows and doors for the complete package.


Work in a comfortable climate – not a hot tin box! We can create a work environment with optional electrical power points and lighting to suit your requirements. The structure is robust with a fully structural steel base to withstand the weight of a heavy work bench and a high-impact wall system that you can directly fix hanging tool racks and shelving too.


If you have valuable goods that needs to be kept secure, clean, moisture free and safe – the garage simply will not do! Whether it is expensive IT or camera equipment, quality furniture or appliances – keep them locked up in your outdoor room.


If you are lucky to have a pool in your garden, then an adjourning Pool Room equipped with showers and maybe even a kitchenette will make it easier to change and relax without accessing the main house.


If you are a business owner in the field of yoga, pilates, martial arts, hair and make up or more and need space to operate your business, forget leasing fees and run your business from home! You have privacy away from the main house and a professional environment to operate your business from home!

These are just some examples of how people have used their Inoutside room and there are many more options to explore! Whichever suits your need, it is a versatile room that adds value to a house, grows with your needs over time and more affordable than you think! Interested to find out more? Why not email us at
