    Do you need planning permission for these ?
    Smiill95's avatar
    Planning permission is NOT required if:
    • You are building a single-storey outbuilding in your premises (e.g., your backyard).
    • Your selected building does not feature a balcony, platform (raised more than 300 mm from the ground) or veranda. We have ensured that our wooden structures featuring veranda are not raised more than 300 mm from the ground.
    • The roof of the building is up to 4 m in height (double-pitched) or up to 3 m in height (single-pitched). The eaves must be up to 2.5 m in height.
    • The ridge height is up to 2.5 m (if the house is built within 2 m of the boundary) or 4 m (if the house is built more than 2 m from any boundary).
    • The newly built structure will be used for non-residential purposes only (e.g., lounging, storage, or remote working).

    If you answered “yes” to all the statements above, you will likely not require Planning Permission for your building. However, in each individual case, we recommend double-checking with your Local Planning Authorities. For your convenience, we have uploaded an application letter sample for your Local Planning Authorities (download here). Regarding the planning rules related to the location of the building, please refer here.

    Found that on their FAQ.

    Probably a stupid question, but is the roof included?

    None of the descriptions mention the roof (they mention flooring and doors/windows) and the roof options on the page are extra on top of the price.

    American homes are timber so why wouldn’t this last?

    It has to be treated for a start and then maintained. It will also need to be well insulated and well vented. You will also need appropriate foundations, etc, etc. With the right setup it should last 40 years if maintained right. Any longer is a bonus

    Sears Modern Homes were homes sold primarily through mail order catalog by Sears, Roebuck and Co., an American retailer. From 1908 to 1942, Sears sold more than 70,000 of these houses in North America, by the company's count.

    Be even further amazed.

    I believe their houses were well respected, and there's no shortage of them still standing today.

    I live in a pebbledashed concrete bunker that was made in the 60's as part of the overflow towns project, never intended to be used this long (IIRC approx 10-15 year life), to make it look better from the outside all the drains etc are internal which absolutely astounds me, and the council just keeps on finding ways to keep using them. To me this kit home would be the height of luxury.

    So to have it installed £32,798, metal roof £11,481, guttering £2924 already £166k into it and that's without services & connection, concrete pad, landscaping etc. It doesn't mention kitchen or bathroom fitted, is it first fixed even? Mohoney yes you're right it would be getting on for £250k.

    It's a lovely idea but even if you got permission to have one would it make sense? You'd be hard pushed to get a mortgage as it's not of standard construction so you'd have to fork out your own cash, and you'd have a job ever selling it because the buyer would struggle with funding, and would it even appreciate like bricks and mortar? I doubt it, I'd think it would be more like a park home or a new car, it would depreciate.
    There must be a market for it or they wouldn't be selling them. Im struggling to think who that market would be??

    People who rent them out as a holiday get away and charge 1200 for a week self catering. 5 years it's paid for itself.
  16. Bargainhunter_13's avatar
    Think the finished cost would be close to 350k.
    Land, footing/slab, drainage, gas, electric, phone, fencing, plumbing, electrics.
    Absolutely no point in this structure.
  17. steve.james's avatar
    These look great and many options but the biggest problem is planning permission as they work slower than snails would if they could !container-housing.co.uk/con…tml
    abigsmurf's avatar
    The planning permission is always the killer. There's no shortage of companies that offer pre-fab houses with turnkey finished where you can get an incredible modern, well insulated house built and filled with appliances for around £200K.

    The problem is that land without planning permission where the chance of getting planning permission is uncertain costs £20K. Land where planning permission has been granted costs £150K+ . It's utterly insane how difficult it is for the average person to build a new house on a bare piece of land.

    And spend another £90k doing it up🙈 decor from the 80s looks good though!!

    Sorry am I stupid to think or is it a full prefabricated house that can be planted in your backyard (big enough) or an empty piece of land?
    Jonwillis's avatar
    Basically yes, it's more like a flat pack house, think IKEA expert level. So you need to build it, including the base/foundations and adding facilities like plumbing and electric so that will add probably £30k or more to the cost.
    Then you'll need to pay for planning permission as well as buy the land of you don't have a plot already for it.

    I wouldn't say it was a prefabricated house. They can look more like normal houses and they just arrive on site and drop the walls, floor and room in place by a crane, taking just a couple of days. (edited)

    Nope. They’re due to go up again in the next few months thanks to wood shortages.
