This is a basic and smallish summerhouse (1.98 m x 2.29 m), but good vfm in my opinion and reasonable quality.

Be aware that this comes as a flatpack. Delivery service direct from the manufacturer was friendly and quick. Be aware though that assembling the summerhouse properly will take some time.

Oh - and yes, I know the image is photoshopped.

how long did it take you? ;)
#2
Longer than I'd thought ... :roll:
You definitely need help at some stages (to temporarily hold bits in place etc.), but the more hands, the better. Don't expect to finish it in one day.
#3
Probably a silly question - but do you need a planning permission?
#4
Its wooden so you don't need planning :)

Depends if it's nailed or screwed together, and also depends on your covenant.

agreed if you are pretty handy should easy be done in a day for most.

I managed to put this up in a day with one other pair of hands helping.

and with regards to planning you will need plannng if it is visable from the road or a bridal way. or over 2.5 meters tall and within 2 meters of the boundry.if below 2.5 meters hen you can put it right upto the boundry if wanted.

I'm sorry to have to poke my nose in but whether or not it is nail or screwed together is not a guide on whether planning is needed. Neither is whether or not is made from wood. It is all based on proximity to your nearest boundry once up and the height of the ridge of the roof or eaves dependant on different factors. Also the type of house you own is a factor in certain circumstances.

See here for absolute confirmation of recent planning regs changes (Oct 08).

If you live in a conservation area OR green belt virtually everthing needs planning permission. Anyway this is a good price if you have the space and need one !

Sorry guys but your planning advice is dangerous. There are no black and white rules without checking with your local authority. The nail and screw info is wrong, as is the built of wood belief and the visible from road or bridleway etc.
The heights do not exceed the regulations as Saggy470 said, but it will also depend on other factors such as the positioning of the building and whether your property is a listed building etc.
You may also have had your permitted development rights removed completely under the original permission for your house. You need to ask your local planning office for advice - most have an easy enquiry form just for this purpose and it could save you a lot of grief later. Most authorities do not charge for this service but if you ask after you have built it there will normally be a charge so play safe and check first.
Sorry to be a killjoy but I do this as my job and we are always amazed at the 'old wives tales' surrounding planning and the trouble they can cause people.

Key point was it depends on your local situation.

totaly agree, but also make sure you speak to somebody who knows what they are talking about in the planning dept. I was told i needed planning as it was withing 2 meters of the boundry and the height did not matter... which was wrong and after getting plans drawn and submitted the local council decided to call me 2 1/2 months later to tell me I didnt need planning after all and sorry for the bad advice. nice little delay on getting the cabin and a couple of hundred out of pockets for the plans to be drawn up.
