Who Are Eco Space Co?
Eco Space Co is a local business established in Poole, Dorset.
It was founded by two friends with a shared passion for sustainable living and beautiful design.
Doug started his career running small building projects including home extensions and garage convertions later becoming the founder of the well established Eco Log Burners Ltd which he founded when the need for Sustainable heating was only just beginning to gain awareness.
Doug first came across the idea for Garden rooms a few years ago after feeling he and his family needed more space, but lacked the finances to move and didn’t want the hassle or extra expense of having an extension built on to his property.
He felt trapped and useless and when he started working from home (before covid) but he knew something had to change.
One day Doug was sitting outside looking at the bottom of the garden thinking about how it was such a waste of space that wasn’t being used, that’s when the idea of building a garden room dawned on him.
He got his friend to give him a hand and they set to work, but while building the garden room Doug could see that some of the building techniques weren’t aligned with his values.
So he started to research the options available that would make building a garden room more sustainable.
He started to research with his friend Ben and together they developed a system that would cause a low impact on the environment but also a minimum amount of disruption that usually comes with most building projects.
After building his garden Office this became the first office for Eco Space Co and the benefits were apparent straight away,
Ben has over 13 years of carpentry experience, Mostly building luxury boats, fitting kitchens and creating pods. Ben loved the work but didn’t like the fact that most of the products being used were extremely damaging to the environment.
After his own struggles with needing more space, he could see that garden rooms were the most hassle-free solution and if they could be made more environmentally sustainable then this would align with values of Sustainability.
After working together researching all the different eco options Doug and Ben decided to join forces to help other homeowners looking to create a hassle-free space while looking to nurture a happier and greener home.
With this shared vision for low carbon, high-quality sustainable living and forward-thinking building techniques, Eco Space Co was born.
