Frequently asked questions

How long will it take to complete my garden room?

Our pod range typically takes just 2 – 4 working days.

Our budget range typically takes 3 – 7 working days.

Our standard range typically takes 1-3 weeks.

Our bespoke range typically takes in the region of 2-4 weeks.

And lastly, our commercial (and schools) range typically takes around 2-4 weeks.

What will my garden room be made from?

Our garden rooms are made from SIPS (structurally insulated panels). They are incredibly cost affective, hard wearing, easy to work with and offer excellent insulation.

If you’ve got any questions at all about SIPS, we’d be more than happy to answer them.

Will I need planning permission?

The vast majority of garden rooms don’t require any planning permission. As a general rule, if the garden room is no higher than 2.5m and under 30msq in total, then the unit can be built under permitted development.

Each location is of course different and we will advise along the way if this is something to factor into your build.

Full details on garden room builds can be found at planningportal.gov.uk

What is the payment structure?

A 40% deposit is taken on confirmation of the start date of your project.

A second invoice of 40% plus any additions is issued on the first day of the project, followed by the final 20% on completion. An amount is kept back for completion of any snagging.

Will you need access to my property?

We only require access to your property when connecting the main power supply to the fuse board and this usually takes just a couple of hours. We require one socket connection and sometimes a water supply too.

We will require access to your garden for the duration of the work. If access to the garden is limited, we can discuss solutions with you and find a way that works.

We have access to a portaloo service so our install team is fully self sufficient during the build and you won’t be disturbed at all.

What happens with any building waste?

All waste products are removed to an off-site skip.

Will my lawn be damaged during the construction process?

We cannot guarantee that your lawn will not be affected whatsoever, however we take as many measures as possible to avoid this.
