Project Managed

With proper planning and a compressive design down to the smallest detail we are able to prefabricate our work in our workshop. We understand the importance of a clear, honest and reliable service. 

Whilst our primary business is the design and build of high quality, bespoke garden offices we also undertake a variety of timber design and build projects. We have included a small selection of some of our past projects below that we hope demonstrates our dedication and attention to detail and our love of using timber within construction.

Most of our projects are prefabricated in our workshop, designed to the smallest detail, we can accurately plan tonsure a smooth and hassle free installation.

Planning Permission

Previously planning permission legislation stated you had to leave a one metre gap between your building and any garden boundary if the internal floor area of your studio exceeded 15 sq metres. This is no longer the case

Provided your building is less than 2.5 m in overall height, you can now extend up to 50% of the area of all your garden. The area of your garden is all your land except the part the house stands on, so the area includes the front garden, side gardens and back garden, less the area of any other buildings, fuel tanks etc.

No buildings are to go in front of the front elevation of the house, same as before.

The 30 sq m max size rule, no longer applies either, the 50% rule replaces it so garden rooms, provided they are single storey, can now be a lot bigger, depending on your garden size.

If you are in a conservation area, then you cannot have anything at the front or side but no longer need permission to place a garden room in the back garden within a conservation area. Before you had to ask for permission wherever it was sited, if you were in a conservation area.

Within the garden of a listed building you need full planning as before.

Within Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty etc, the rules are the same as before, max size of 10sq metres at least 20 metres away from the house.

You must apply for planning permission if it is being used for overnight accommodation whatever area you are in.

This is our understanding at present of the national rules, but some councils may have local waivers and variations, always check with your local planners first.

In all cases, building regulations do not apply ONLY if the building does not contain any sleeping accommodation.
