People have been building extensions onto their homes for many years. Whether it is to add space that can shelter family or favourite house guests, or if it was to add a bit of character to your designated workspace, yoga/meditation room or children’s playroom, the reasons for extending a home are endless. Unfortunately, extending off your home can be quite costly and depending on what is being built, you may need to consult with your local council and neighbours to obtain the required planning permission. This could require a lot of paperwork, a solicitor’s involvement and even rising charges depending on the size of the extension.
So, how do you avoid all the high fees and red tape? People all across the UK are getting around this by installing eco-friendly and cost-effective garden pods, hubs and bespoke builds that provide so much more space to work with than a traditional extension. As long as the garden space is for domestic use only and doesn’t take up more than half your garden, planning permission is not required. That means your new garden space can be equipped with a full bar, as long as you don’t charge your friends and family for the G+T’s. These types of spaces are perfect for watching the game in a “man cave”, hosting a boozy brunch in the “she shed” or for working off some of the quarantine weight in your very own yoga studio or personal gym. These areas are used as an escape from the pressures of everyday life.
