Description

The Waltons 4m x 3m Retreat Traditional Log Cabin provides a stylish addition to any garden and boasts a high quality construction, meaning this building can be enjoyed by you and your family for many years to come. The large roof overhang fitted to this timber cabin is perfect if you want to place a bench underneath and enjoy the views of your garden whilst under cover.

This log cabin is finished in tongue and groove joints that have been created using quality Baltic FSC certified Pine, making this building completely weatherproof. An added bonus of this method of construction is that it helps to retain the heat inside, this cabin really can be used all year round regardless of the weather. Pre-fitted, paned, glazed windows allow natural light to flood the building, resulting in a bright and well ventilated interior space that you will love spending time in.

A classic apex roofline means there is a huge amount of headroom on the inside, ideal if you want to install standing shelves or standing lamps. Mineral felt is included with this building as standard to help protect the roof from the weather causing potential wood rot and decay. The fully opening double doors are fitted with a lock and key so you can keep the building safe and secure when you aren’t at home. The base is pressure treated for maximum durability and the overall structure of the building is stable and sturdy thanks to thick timber framing.

Planning Permission

This is in no way binding and is dependent on Local Authorities, but may be used as a guide

Applications for approval normally involve a fee, normally related in some way to the value of the development.

Where the development is more than just a simple extension, it is worth considering employing an architect to draw up the plans, submit them to the Local Authority, obtain the approval and then to oversee the work. A professional architect will have professional insurance in case anything should go wrong and should know the Local Officials and their particular foibles.

Every application for Planning Permission or Building Regulations is, to an extent, unique. While the following are general rules, it is impossible to define all the regulations applying to a specific development - Local Authorities have some thick books of rules rather than just these few pages. It is always good advice to consult your local planning/building control officers early to avoid any costly abortive work. If work is carried out without the necessary approvals, the local authority can issue an enforcement notice requiring (at best) retrospective approval or (at worst) demolition of the work completed.

Although the functions of Planning Officials and Building Inspector are separate, the two will often be found in the same building; they are normally very helpful and offer authoritative guidance.

Normally Planning Permission or Building Regulation approval is not required provided that:

• Sheds and greenhouses do not cover more than half of the area of the garden; not including the area occupied by the house.

• It contains no sleeping accommodation and the floor area does not exceed 15 square metres.

• No point is less than one metre from a boundary.

• It is not more than 3m high for a flat roof, or 4m with a ridged roof.

• Overall height from ground level to ridge must not exceed more than 2.5 metres within a 2 metre range of any boundary. A building with overall height exceeding 2.5 mtrs in height and placed within 2 metres of any boundary will require planning permission.

• Height of the eaves must not exceed 2.5 metres

• No part projects beyond any wall of the house that faces a road.

• The outbuilding is for use only by those who occupy the house.

• A Log Cabin should be more than 5 metres from the main dwelling and up to 50% of the remaining garden can be utilised with this type of building.

• No verandas higher than 30cms from ground level.

Building Regulations do state that structures built of combustible material (i.e. a wooden shed) must be at least 2 metres from the main house.

If at all in doubt contact your local authority for clarification. No charge will be made if no planning permission is required.
