Garden Office Location To Boundaries
Single pitch roof 2.5m high garden offices under 15m2 (e.g. Up to 5.5m x 3m) are required to be sited at least 0.5m from any boundary.
Single pitch roof 2.5m high garden offices over 15m2 (Above 5m x 3.5m) are required to be sited at least 1m from any boundary.
In order to construct your new garden office on site we need the construction area to be clear of any sheds, trees, rocks and shrubs etc.
The ground on which the garden office is to be built must be relatively firm and not slope more than a foot within the dimensions of the garden office.
Our prices include the cost of installing a concrete pile foundation system which is suitable in 99% of all installations.
Site Access And Parking
he installation team will require parking at the property for at least one large van.
The van need to be parked fairly close to the construction area for the duration of the project. Unrestricted access between the vehicle and the actual construction site is important.
We cannot transfer materials through a very tight alleyway which twists and turns or has a height restriction of 2m or less.
The installation team will be booked into local accommodation during the construction process and will stay with you until your garden office is completed.

On the first day the team will discuss the exact positioning of the garden office in your garden, unload the necessary materials to the site area and start to prepare and install the concrete pile foundations and garden office timber base.
Each installation teams is very experienced at constructing all types and sizes of garden offices and have many years experience. During the construction the team will consult with you at every stage of the build.

Our build process is very flexible and allows you to make important decisions on site without worrying about them beforehand.
Once completed the installation team will tidy and clean the garden office and remove any debris and excess materials from the site area. They will ask you to inspect the garden office and check all aspects before leaving the site. On completion of the garden office the balance payment will become due.
