If you’re looking to improve the image of your garden whilst also adding a level of functionality and purpose to it, then a garden room is the perfect way to achieve this. Not only do you have a private space and Garden offices for you to conduct your professional/personal duties, but it also serves as an aesthetic pleasure too!

However, you may be put off by the perceived potential drawbacks; such as cost, time and regulations. Ask any garden room builders you know, and they will give you the answers you need. Don’t know anybody who specialises in garden buildings Yorkshire and beyond? Have a read through this piece and see if it puts your mind at ease!

The Cost of Garden Buildings Yorkshire

It is extremely difficult to give you a standard quote for a garden room because each design is bespoke. The cost of a summer houses Yorkshire depends on what amenities you have, the size and the materials needed for the construction.

Regardless, the installation of a garden room is no small project and a level of patience and skill is required during this process. Better still, the recruitment of specialist garden room builders is recommended above all else!

Does Size Matter?

When it comes to deciding how big you want your garden room to be, you must take good care in thinking about the size. Once an installation is completed, it is difficult to reverse the decision if you then decide to upscale or downscale.

The question of whether size matters is thrown around quite a lot in today’s society and in regards to garden room installations, yes it does. You don’t want a garden room that’s far too big for its purpose but at the same time you don’t want to cram yourself into a tight space. Think carefully!

Do I Need Planning Permission?

This question often confuses people as the regulations don’t exactly make it crystal clear. In short, the answer is no, so long as you meet certain criteria. The installation of a Garden buildings Yorkshire comes under ‘permitted development’ and therefore permission does not need to be sought so long as

·         The garden building is placed within or less than 2m of the boundary of your property or;

·         The maximum overall height of the garden building does not exceed 2.5m from the existing ground level.

If your garden building of choice does not meet this criteria, you are best advised to seek planning permission from your local authority. However, if your property is a listed building or sits on designated land, you are exempt from any planning permission rules.
