Frequently asked questions
1. DO I NEED PLANNING PREMISSION
Outbuildings and garden sheds are considered to be permitted developments. Whilst they typically won’t require planning permission before construction can get underway, there are certain limits and conditions that need to be considered when looking for a garden shed permission:
Garden sheds and outbuildings must be one story, and eave heights cannot exceed 2.5 metres. Overall height cannot exceed 4 metres if a dual pitched roof is present or 3 metres with any other type of roof.
If a garden shed will be situated within 2 metres of a dwelling house boundary, the maximum height is 2.5 metres.
Eave heights cannot exceed 2.5 metres.
No raised platforms, balconies, or verandas.
Outbuildings should cover no more than half of the area that surrounds the original home.
Outbuildings are not allowed on land in front of a wall that forms the principal elevation.
With buildings, containers, and enclosures found on designated land (including natural parks and other conservation areas), planning permissions will be required.
Any outbuilding within the curtilage of a listed building will require planning permission.
Log cabins should be at least 5 metres from the main dwelling.
Remember that these development allowances are to houses and not maisonettes, flats, or other buildings, and if you are considering constructing a garden shed or another outbuilding on one of those premises, you should consider guidance for those specific properties.
2. CAN I CUSTOMIZE THE CABIN TO SUIT MY REQUIREMENTS?
Yes, cabin size and construction are fully customisable. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.
3. WHAT TYPE OF BASE DO I NEED?
A concrete base is the recommended foundation for these buildings; however paving slabs can also prove suitable providing the hardcore is sufficient.
Timber and sleeper bases are not recommended as these tend to move and settle as the ground conditions change.
4. HOW LONG WILL THE CABIN TAKE TO ASSEMBLE ON SITE?
Each garden office can typically be erected in 1-10 days. The usual timescale from placing an order to delivery is between 4 and 6 weeks.
5. CAN I HAVE CARPETS OR LAMINATE FLOOR FITTED?
Carpets and laminate flooring are easy to fit after assembly. We would be happy to supply and fit laminate flooring – please discuss your requirements at the design appointment.
6. ARE THESE BUILDINGS SUITABLE FOR USE ALL YEAR ROUND?
Yes, our customers use these buildings all year round as garden offices, bedrooms, gyms, external workrooms, studios and small business units. Insulation, heating and air conditioning requirements will be discussed with you at your design appointment.
