The Process

Going from our website, to your garden...

Here's how it works

1. Choose a design you like

Look at the designs below and choose which you think would work best in the space you have. Everything is customisable so any changes you want can be made.

2. Get in touch and we'll take a full brief

What will you use your Garden Lodge for? A home office, a gym, a man cave? The more we know, the better we can design your lodge around you.

3. We'll create your lodge in 3D

We'll supply you with 3D models of your Garden Lodge so you know exactly what it's going to be like before you order. Once you're happy with everything, we'll complete the order.

4. We build you new Garden Lodge

We can supply builders or you can use your own. We'll send everything needed to site along with detailed instructions on its construction. Happy days!

Permitted Development

This information has come from the Government website.

Near boundaries

If the outbuilding is within 2 metres of the property boundary the whole building should not exceed 2.5 metres in height.

Height limits

Outbuildings must be single storey with a maximum eaves height of 2.5 metres and maximum overall height of 4 metres with a dual pitched roof, or 3 metres in any other case.

Area permitted

Outbuildings and other additions must not exceed 50% of the total area of land around the original house. Sheds and all other outbuildings (see intro) and extensions to the original house must be included when calculating this 50% limit.

Balconies, decking and platforms

Balconies and verandas are not permitted development. Raised platforms such as decking are permitted development provided they are no higher than 300mm.

Principal elevation

Outbuildings are not permitted development forward of the principal elevation of the original house.

The term original house means the house as it was first built or as it stood on 1 July 1948 (if it was built before that date).

Listed building

Outbuildings are not permitted development within the grounds of a listed building.
