If the building is shorter than 2.5m tall you should not require planning permission, (unless it’s more than 50% of your garden or to be put in your front garden). Planning permission rules can vary by area so we would strongly recommend checking your local council rules before ordering from us.
We'd recommend any flat and level base be put in place before you start construction of any of our buildings. The material can vary so long as it creates a flat and level base, many cutomers opt for Concrete, Paving Slabs or our popular Ecobase and EzeBase options available above. The floor of the building comes with bearers which lift the building off the base and allows the flooring to have a gap between itself and the ground this helps slow down or stop any rotting that could occur if the wood is kept in standing water.
The building should be treated once fully assembled and within one month of recieveing the product. All the treatments we supply ensure the building will only need to be treated once a year, but always consult the directions on the treatment that you have purchased. Pressure treated building dont need to be treated annually but may need to be topped up in its later life.
