Garden Rooms FAQ

What is included in the price?

Our prices includes a full installation service, though excluding excessive preparatory site clearance if any.

The only other requirement is a power supply cable laid to the garden room to connect electrical power from the meter box to the garden room consumer unit.

Do I need planning permission?

All our Garden rooms are 25 sq metres (270sq ft) or under in floor area. This means they fall within the exempt category of the planning laws. Exempt development is any development for which planning permission is not required. However it is possible that you have used up some or all of your 25 sq meters already in your garden. We will be happy to carry out a site visit and advise you on your planning exemptions.

Ultimately it is your responsibility to ensure that the building of the garden room on your site complies with planning regulations. For full details on the Irish Planning Regulations check out http://www.irishstatutebook.ie/2001/en/si/0600.html

What are my options for internet access, phone and fax services?

The simplest, and usually cheapest, way to get internet and phone access to your building is to use a wireless router and a dual cordless phone. Instead of using a traditional fax machine there are many software applications available that allow you to send and receive faxes using your internet connection.

Alternatively you can run a telephone cable to your garden room from the external junction box of your dwelling.

What are the payment terms?
