How do you build a garden gym?

Building a garden gym follows a similar process to building any garden room. However, it’s important to make sure the floor is strong enough to withstand the use of heavy equipment. You will want to make sure your gym is large enough for all the equipment you plan to use, and you may even want to consider a separate shower or changing area for extra comfort. ""

Whats a good size for a garden gym?

Garden gyms can be any size you want, but they must be under 10m x 10m if you don’t want to apply for planning permission. However, they don’t have to be this large. In general, a garden gym of 3m x 3m is about the smallest you will probably want it to be. 5m x 4m is probably more common, but it depends on how you will use it and the size of equipment you want it to keep inside.

Do you need planning for a garden gym?

If it is located within 2 metres of a property boundary, it should have a maximum height of 2.5 metres.
