Frequently asked questions

Do I need planning permission and/or building regulations?

Garden buildings are considered permitted development and do not require planning permission. However, rooms must be less than 2.5m in height and under 30sqm. We are able to give you advice on planning permission but information can also be found on the Government Planning Portal website.

In most cases garden rooms are also exempt from building regulations.

Will I be able to use one of your rooms all year round?

Yes, we use 110mm Structurally Insulated panels with an additional 25mm insulation to the interior, 110mm Structurally Insulated Panels to the floor and 90mm insulation for the roof.

Can I have water and drainage to my room?

Yes, please contact us for further information.

What options are available?

The list is endless as all rooms are made to order.  Popular options are bifold doors, underfloor heating and artificial grass roof.  Please contact us and we can provide advice and a visualisation.

What is the standard build specification for your rooms?

Please click on our Products page for further information.

What is the lead time for installation?

Typically 6-8 weeks from confirmation of order but we aim to fulfil orders as soon as possible

How long do rooms take to build?

This depends upon the size of the room but installation is usually completed within 7-10 working days.

What payment options do you offer?

Payment can be made by cheque, direct bank transfer or debit card.  Most major credit cards are accepted but are subject to an additional charge.

What access is required?

Ideally we would need access via the side or rear of the property.  However we know this isn’t always possible so access through the property is satisfactory.

Do I need to clear the site?

The site should be obstacle free wherever possible.

How much deposit is required?

In most cases we don’t require a deposit.  Our payment terms are detailed on our quotation.
