Garden log cabins give more space at home

Our garden rooms are the outstandingly practical, attractive and cost-effective way to give yourself extra space at home. The space you need for hobbies and crafts, a teenage den, an office or music room. Space to stretch out and enjoy your garden to the full, thanks to the Norwegian Log Effect™.

Our garden log cabins are 9-30m2 (130-323 sq.ft.). We have developed our standard range over the years to satisfy virtually all requirements, while our bespoke design service is available should you have specific needs.

We can also help you make more of the space available in your garden, because our patented jointing system means we aren’t limited to walls at right angles. We can fit your garden room elegantly across a corner, for example, or in another nook in your garden.

In most cases, you won’t need Planning Permission or Building Regulations approval for our garden rooms (unless you incorporate a bed). You can read more about this in our guide, or contact us for straightforward advice.

Quick and clean installation

With our log technology, you can be enjoying your new garden room far faster than with traditional building methods. The way we work dramatically reduces the amount of time we spend on site, and we carry out all our work as cleanly as possible, with minimal disturbance. We really do appreciate that we’re working in your garden, which is precious to you in so many ways.

We usually deliver our garden rooms as relatively small components. If necessary, we can carry every component through a standard domestic doorway, giving us access to gardens where we can’t use a crane.

On some sites, we may be able to deliver our garden rooms as modules, which we pre-assemble in our own factory under ideal conditions. This reduces the time needed on site to just a few days.

Cost-effectiveness, speed and simplicity make our wooden garden rooms the sensible alternative to traditional conservatories and extensions. There’s no disruption to your main house. No need to find and coordinate builders. No messy conventional foundations.

Furthermore, consider how difficult it is to keep a conservatory warm in winter and cool in summer. Our eco-friendly garden rooms have a high level of natural insulation, thanks to the robust solid log, giving you comfortable year-round use with minimal running costs.

Most frequently asked questions

Do I have to prepare my own base?

If you wish. We’ll provide a drawing and specification for the base when we receive your order. Or we can handle it for you. Our service includes providing a quotation for the base and associated works once we’ve inspected your site.

Do I need Planning Permission for a building in my garden?

In most cases, no, provided it satisfies all the criteria for Permitted Development. Outbuildings are considered to be permitted development, subject to the following conditions:

  1. The outbuilding is not to the side of a house on designated land (includes national parks and the Broads, Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, conservation areas and World Heritage Sites). Note that outbuildings are permitted development within the grounds of a listed building.
  2. The outbuilding is not forward of the principle elevation of the original elevation of the house.
  3. The outbuilding and other additions must not exceed 50% of the total area of land around the original house. Sheds and all other outbuildings and extensions to the original house must be included when calculating this 50% limit.
  4. The outbuilding must not itself be separate, self-contained living accommodation.
  5. The outbuilding is single storey with a maximum eaves height of 2.5 m and a maximum overall height of 4 m with a dual pitch roof, or 3 m in any other case.
  6. If the building is within 2 m of the property boundary, the whole building must not exceed 2.5 m in height.
  7. Any veranda is no higher than 300 mm.

We strongly advise that you check with your local Planning Office before proceeding. If you want to avoid all planning issues, take a look at our Contemporary buildings. They feature a different, distinctively contemporary, look, and fall within the 2.5 m height limit for planning close to boundaries.

Can you construct to my own design?

Provided the main component of the building is log, we can build a structure of almost any size within reason, and for a wide range of applications.

Testimonials

“I wanted a gym, space for entertaining and a playroom – our Garden Room does it all. We were even able to have a tool store attached. It looks delightfully elegant, yet it’s so strong and solid.”

Lorraine Rich

“Modern, open – fits our type of house and all our criteria. It’s so light and airy… makes me even more creative. So impressed with the building team, construction had very low impact on our lifestyle. Superb workmanship.”

Paul & Françoise Read

It’s warm and it’s cosy; it’s solid and it’s quiet. The fragrance of pine reminds you of Scandinavian forests and summer evenings. Your imagination starts to take you places. You imagine a wood burner, perhaps a desk or why not just some space to think?

Our show home is 28 years old, yet customers still say it looks and feels brand new. That’s the quality of our workmanship and the materials. When you step into a Norwegian Log building you’re stepping into a feeling and just like our buildings it’s one that will last.
