Why buy a summer house?
In addition to being a great way to add space to your home, summer houses also offer a number of benefits.
Whether you're looking for a peaceful retreat, a fun entertainment space, or a practical storage area for garden tools and equipment, a summer house is the perfect solution. It’s also a great way to add value to your property. If you ever decide to sell your home, a well-built summer house can be a strong selling point, as it offers additional living space without the need for a costly extension.
Even on those days when the weather isn't great, you can still have time outside in your summer house. This can be especially useful if you have children, as it gives them a space to play and be creative without being cooped up indoors.
If you're considering adding a summer house to your garden, you may have some questions about the process. Here are some of the most common questions and answers to help you make an informed decision - and if you need more info, check out our freesummer house buying guide.
How do I choose the right summer house for my needs?
First consider the available space in your garden, as well as the intended use of the summer house. If you plan to use it as a storage area or workshop, you may need a larger building, but a smaller model may be suitable for a reading nook or outdoor dining area. Budget and design preferences are also important aspects of the decision-making process.
Do I need planning permission for a summer house?
Most summer houses don’t require planning permission as they fall under the category of outbuildings, which are considered to be permitted developments. However, there are a few conditions to be met – our guide togarden building planning permissioncan help out here. If you have any doubts, or are considering more specific requirements, it’s best to consult with your local planning authority.
How do I maintain my summer house?

Keep the surrounding area clear of debris and foliage to prevent any damage to the structure.

Yes – if you ventilate, insulate and heat your summer house, you can use it any time you like, whatever the temperature outside.
How long will my summer house last?
With proper care and maintenance, you can get years of enjoyment from your summer house.
Can I install utilities in my summer house?
Yes – you can install electricity, plumbing and internet connectivity to your summer house. This is particularly useful if you plan to use it as a home office, studio or guest house. However, it is recommended to hire a professional electrician and plumber to ensure safety and compliance with building regulations.
How do I secure my summer house?
To ensure the safety and security of your summer house and its contents, it is recommended to install locks and a security alarm. You should also avoid keeping valuable items in your summer house, and consider adding security lighting around the perimeter.
