Lodges and Cabins
Use Your Garden
Do you need extra living space? Would you like your own bar, gym or hobby room in your garden? Are you developing a new holiday let business or upgrading your existing holiday lets? Are you seeking extra income via Air B&B? Or would you like your elderly parents close by whilst enjoying thier own space and freedom?
We offer bespoke garden buildings, annexes, log cabins and lodges that are designed to your specification.
In most cases you will not require planning consent as they fall within the regulation that mobile homes and garden buildings fall into but we can advise in each unique situation.
We do recommend speaking with your local authority in each situation and we can help you draft a letter of notification.

Typical Construction Methods
Our typical onsite construction is as follows;
8 x 2 softwood, treated, structural grade floor that is sat on either a concrete pad, an easy pad with adjustable foot or anchored to the oak supporting frame. The floor is then insulated and boarded. We then use a 4 x 2 treated softwood frame that is OSB boarded, wrapped in breathable membrane and battened for cladding. The walls and roof are insulated up to 150mm using a Kingspan phenolic insulation.
Depending on your chosen internal layout we may need to use a lightweight tile system like a Tapco slate but if we can incorporate internal structural walls then normal tiles can be used.
Numerous cladding options available.
