Garden Room with Canopy

GARDEN ROOM WITH SIDE CANOPY

Green Retreats is proud to present our latest optional extra for customers! We have just launched our new side canopy option, available on our Expression design or the TGO1 building from our brand The Garden Office.

The side canopy creates a stylish outdoor living space that is sheltered at the top and back. This versatile addition to your garden room is perfect for a hot tub enclosure or alfresco dining solution, as well as a great alternative to a pergola or gazebo.

PLANNING PERMISSION

Planning permission is generally not required for our buildings.

Our garden buildings are classed as outbuildings which fall within your permitted development rights, making them as hassle-free to have installed as a typical garden shed.

If you do not have permitted development rights at your property, or need to apply for planning permission for any other reason, we will take care of the application process for you – giving you one less thing to worry about.

SIZES

As long as the total size of the building is kept under 30 square metres and the height is less than 2.5m then planning permission should not be required. We cover these aspects by only offering these options as standard. The total size of your building includes the garden room and the overhang together.

POPULAR USE IDEA

HOT TUB SHELTER

A great idea for your garden room canopy could be to create a hot tub shelter.

Our garden room buildings are the perfect retreat to relax in away from the stresses of home. A hot tub is a perfect partner for your garden room, both making the most of the outside space and promoting outdoor living. Your shelter gives added privacy and protection from the weather come rain or shine.

We have teamed up with Hot Tub Hub at our Buckinghamshire showroom to display some of the UKs best hot tub designs alongside our garden room buildings!

PATIO AREA

Outdoor living and making the most of your garden with a patio area is a great way to increase the feeling of space.

FAQs

The canopy is available on the Expression from the Green Retreats range and the TGO1 from The Garden Office range. Available only on building with a maximum depth of 4m or less and the total footprint of your building including the canopy must not exceed 30 square metres. 

Yes, they are warm enough to use throughout the year as they are all well insulated and come with a free-standing oil filled radiator as standard.

Our garden rooms are not designed to be lived in as they do not comply with building regulations. If you would like to live in a garden room, The Annex is part of The Green Retreats Group and offers garden annexes with full planning permission, which comply with building regulations.

Whilst our garden rooms are temporary structures and are moveable. It is worth considering that the costs to move a building is chargeable to you and can equate to an amount that does not make moving the building viable.

Our garden room structures will need to remain free-standing due to the nature of their construction. However, we can build as close as 400mm to any solid obstacle, such as your house.

We do not offer bespoke building options. However, we do offer many different sizes and styles to suit your tastes and budget. You can start to design your building using our visualiser.

We don’t offer a completely soundproof solution for your garden room. We do, however, offer an acoustic pack which reduces the transfer of sound to approximately -45db – however, this is not ‘soundproof’. Although we use industry-leading acoustically laminated glass, this is the least effective component of our acoustic pack. Please bear in mind that the more glass you opt for in your garden room, the lesser the effect the acoustic pack will have.

Planning permission is not normally required as our buildings fall under permitted development (built under 2.5m high externally). Most houses, even in conservation areas and areas of outstanding natural beauty (AONB), have permitted development rights. Flats and listed buildings have no permitted development rights, so will always need planning permission. Don’t worry though, as planning is a relatively simple process for our garden rooms and we are on-hand to help with this process.

We offer a complete electrical connection from your house to the garden room at an additional cost, which will be confirmed at your design consultation. However, you are more than welcome to use your own preferred electrician for this.
