Garden buildings placed within 2m of a boundary will require to be below 2.5m in overall from ground level before planning is required.

All of our buildings are made within 2.5m overall height. Some areas may still require planning such as areas of outstanding beauty or listed grounds.

If a garden building is more than 2m from a boundary the overall height for a dual pitch is increased to 4m before planning is required.

Side access with a minimum of 2.2m height clearance is required if possible. However, if this is not possible, our sectional buildings can be made in sections suitable to suit restricted access if noted at the time of purchase.

We complete 90% of our buildings within our workshop which means less time on site. Our usual installation time is 1-2 days. Internal finishes such as electrical fit-outs , insulation and internal cladding can add on an additional day.

Yes and we love a challenge! All of our buildings are made from scratch in our workshops. This allows us to make buildings of all shape and sizes. We can make buildings as bespoke as the mind can imagine, so feel free to send your ideas our way!

Or in some cases just pressure-treated timber bearers and packing.

For those seeking a more substantial foundation, we offer the option of a fully reinforced concrete base with a brick course build-up. This method provides a high level of stability and longevity, ideal for larger or heavier timber buildings. The combination of reinforced concrete and a brick course ensures a solid and durable base that can withstand the test of time and environmental factors.
