How big can I build a cabin without planning permission?

You can build a garden cabin without planning permission as long as you make sure it is under 10m x 10m in size, and it does not go over 3 metres in height in most cases, or 2.5 metres if it is located within 2 metres of the property’s boundary. Most of our garden cabins are within these specifications so you do not require planning permission.

What can you build in your garden without planning permission?

If you do not want the hassle of applying for planning permission, your garden room must meet specific requirements. As well as the maximum size, you can only build a garden room that is up to 50% of your garden’s total area, which includes your front garden. It must also not be used as a permanent bedroom. There are also some specific requirements for listed properties and those in Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Please ask if you would like further information.

Can you sleep in a log cabin in your garden?

You can comfortably sleep in one of our high-quality insulated log cabins, and many people use their garden rooms as guest rooms. However, there are rules about living in a garden room. If you want to use your garden room as a permanent bedroom, it’s best to seek advice from a specialist.
