“Steel framed garden room pods”

"Light Gauge steel framed building systems"

...Each stylish garden room pod design is built in a steel frame which is manufactured by Metal Frame Construction Ltd (MFC).  We choose this building method as we wanted to build the garden room pods off site and simply deliver them as a turnkey unit, that means we can deliver by articulated lorry and lift them onto the site by crane.  One of the other advantages is that this means it can be easily made air tight, it is stronger and we have ensured that there is a high insulation by wrapping ceilings, walls, and floors.

The garden room pods made with a steel frame have many advantages, some of the benefits are that steel will last a long time, it will not twist, rot or crack unlike other building methods.  So all the investment you make by purchasing your pod will be retained as your steel framed pod lasts much longer than other building methods.

Light gauge steel is robust and strong, because we have manufactured the Garden room pods in this system it allows the garden room pods to be lifted easily into position on site. It also means that if you decide to move home that the pod can move with you.  Simply lifted out by crane and put onto a lorry and transported to your next location.
