Do I need to get planning permission?

Our garden rooms are designed to comply with the latest regulations and come under permitted development rights, so you most likely won’t require planning permission. Under permitted development, you are allowed to build on up to 50% of your rear garden as long as the building complies with the permitted development rules and regulations.

Unless you live in a Conservation Area, you will probably not need to seek permission from the local authorities.

How should I prepare my site?

The site must be clear of any obstacles but you will be advised at Site Survey.

Will my garden room have to comply with any building regulations?

All of our buildings are built to comply with current building standards.

Do your garden rooms come with heating? And what about electricity supply?

Electrical connection comes with all our garden rooms. Heating is for frost protection only, unless otherwise specified.

Can I have a toilet and/or kitchen in my garden room?

Bespoke features like bathrooms or kitchens are available with some of our room types, however installing a bathroom will require a building warrant which we are happy to help with.

Can I have underfloor heating?

Yes, electrical underfloor heating can be installed.

Can a garden room be attached to the house?

Yes but this will be classed as an extension and will more likely require planning permission.

Will weeds grow under the garden room?

No, because when we’re installing the ground screw base, we put a weed suppressor membrane to stop the weeds growing.

How long does it take?

It would take up between 7-10 days before your building would be ready for use, depending on the size of your garden room.

What’s included in the price?

All our prices include the complete package: design, off-site construction and on-site installation by our fully trained professional installation team. Interior finishings and electrics are also provided.

When will my Shedlands building be delivered?

It will take approximately 4 to 6 weeks, subject to availability. Please check with the sales team for the most up to date availability.

What guarantee do you provide on your Garden Rooms?

We offer a 10 year structural warranty alongside the manufacturer’s guarantees on our garden rooms.

Do you offer finance?

Yes, we now offer finance through Ideal4Finance.
