High-quality garden rooms designed with you in mind

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?

Like any type of garden building, a garden gym does not require planning permission as long as it meets specific requirements. Garden gyms are permitted developments, but your garden gym should be no larger than 10m x 10m, the eaves should be a maximum of 2.5 metres high, the overall height should be under 4 metres with a dual pitched roof or 3 metres with any other roof. If it is located within 2 metres of a property boundary, it should have a maximum height of 2.5 metres.

Can I build a gym in my garden?

Yes, this is a very popular use for a garden room. As long as the garden building is made to a high quality and is strong enough to be used for your workouts, it’s a great option. Many of our models, like The Dawn, can be used as garden gyms.
