Garden Room Regulations Made Easy


Hassle-Free Garden Room Construction

When it comes to building a garden room, we understand that dealing with complex regulations and planning permission can be a daunting process. That's why we've made it our mission to simplify the construction of your garden room. Unlike many extensions or loft conversions, our garden rooms do not require building regulations approval or planning permission. This means you can enjoy the benefits of extra space without unnecessary hassle. As long as the structure doesn't exceed a height of 2.5m and has an internal headroom of 2.2m, no additional planning is required. Our streamlined process ensures a smooth and stress-free experience, allowing you to focus on creating your perfect garden retreat.


Guidelines for Detached Garden Buildings

At House of Garden Rooms, we believe in making garden room construction as straightforward as possible. Our products have been designed with simplicity in mind, which is why they typically don't require planning permission or application for Building Regulations Approval. If you're considering small detached buildings like garden sheds or summerhouses, you'll be pleased to know that building regulations usually don't apply. As long as the floor area of the building is less than 15-20 square metres and it is situated at least 1/2m away from the boundary wall, you can enjoy your garden retreat without worrying about building regulations. Our expert team will guide you through the process, ensuring compliance with all relevant regulations and creating a seamless addition to your outdoor space.


Regulations for Larger Garden Rooms

If you're looking to create a larger garden room, our team is here to assist you every step of the way. With a floor area between 15 square metres and 30 square metres, these garden rooms offer ample space for a variety of purposes. While specific regulations come into play for larger structures, the good news is that you typically won't need to apply for building regulations approval. Our experienced professionals will ensure that your garden room is positioned at least 1m away from the boundary wall of your property, adhering to the guidelines. It's important to note that these spacious garden rooms must not include any sleeping accommodation. By working closely with our team, you can confidently create a bespoke garden room that meets your requirements while staying compliant with regulations.
