If you want to enhance the looks of your garden, you may want to consider adding a cottage-type shed. This type of building addition will add both charm and practicality to a garden space. You can find these types of buildings online that can be designed per your specifications.

However, if you choose to add local bespoke garden buildings in Bolton, you also have to follow planning permission guidelines. These guidelines mandate the following:

  • A building that is located within two metres of a boundary should not exceed 2.5 metres in height.
  • If a building is over two metres from a boundary, it should not surpass four metres in height.
  • If a building is under 15m2, building regulations will not apply. If the shed is between 15m2 and 30m2 and is over one metre from a boundary, the regulations will not apply.

If you wish to get rid of your current garden building, you can have a disposal service come and collect the building and dispose of it. That way, you will be free and clear to erect the new shed. Most homeowners have a concrete base laid before the building is built. To minimise the entry of water, the base should be undersized.

Knowing the above details is necessary if you wish to design your own bespoke building. You can make plans on online software to see how the building will eventually look. If a building is delivered and installed, the installers need to access a site that is at least one metre in width to deliver the various section.
