The Outside Room


Ken Clement has been crafting and delivering portable, custom-made rooms in Canterbury and across the South Island for the past two and a half years, with his wife Tracy as marketing manager. From art studios, libraries and craft rooms, to man caves, music studios and sleepouts, the made-to-order rooms are double-glazed, lined with hardwood ply and fully insulated, with a ranch slider opening to a generous deck and veranda.

Stylish, durable, weathertight and maintenance-free, up to three windows can be positioned to maximise light and views. The rooms are timber framed with a Colorsteel corrugated iron exterior in a range of colours, with doors in a choice of black or sandstone grey. Ken has 23 years’ experience in the building industry and is dedicated to producing the best quality product.

From design to delivery, the entire process takes up to four weeks, without the need to complete home renovations or deal with the council. “Because they are under 10sqm, there are no council requirements; and all rooms are wired with a caravan adapter and come with an electrical Certificate of Compliance.” With a strong focus on eco-friendly construction and practices, not only do the rooms look fantastic, but they are built with almost zero wastage – everything is recycled. A low-interest finance option is also available.
