Building Regulations (2)
If you intend to live permanently (self-contained) within your building, and it isn’t classified as a caravan (click this link to understand what constitutes a ‘caravan) then it will need to full planning regulations.
Building regulations are in place to ensure your finished build is safe, efficient and long-lasting. Our timber frame and twin-skin log models are designed to fully comply with UK building regulations (including the new Eurocode 5) as standard. In fact, we can build to stricter, Scandinavian regulations and Tek10 for ultimate performance and future proofing. Not all buildings/instances require building regulations, but if you intend to use your new building for sleeping accommodation, and it can’t be classed as a ‘mobile home’ building regulations will usually be required.
