FAQ

Welcome to our FAQ’s page where hopefully you will be able to find the answers to the questions that most people ask when considering a building for their garden – everything from do I need planning permission and if so what the building regulations? to questions concerning quality and build and even HMRC and VAT implications.

We have provided many of the questions that we regularly get asked however if you can’t find an answer then please do not hesitate to contact us.

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.

BS 3632:2015 Residential Park Homes

Sets out the minimum standard for residential buildings (below UK Building Regulations). It usually applies to caravan and park homes. Although this standard has been updated, we feel this is a substandard specification – offering inadequate insulation and flimsy build quality – so all our buildings, including our park homes, go far beyond this. We build to full residential house standards and UK building regulations, or beyond.
