This is one the main reasons as to why building a garden room has an advantage over building an extension and why garden rooms are worth it. Building an extension can be a long and tedious task, as it requires a lot of preparation, with architects and planning permission requirements.
When you commission an extension to your home, you will be required to pay for custom architectural design work and will likely need to receive planning permission for the construction. Our garden rooms rarely require planning permission, which is a major advantage of investing in a garden office rather than building an extension. However, there are a few exceptions where planning permission may be required, such as if you are planning on using the unit as a self-contained living area but again, one of our design experts will advise you through this. Check out our FAQ page, where we answer many questions regarding planning permission, maximum building sizes and building regulations.
