Extend your home without the need for planning permission


A garden room is a modern and practical solution for extending your home, Traditional home extension methods such as loft conversions and conservatories tend to be costly, time-consuming and complicated to implement. At Green Retreats we design and construct our garden room buildings to avoid the need for planning permission – meaning that most properties will not need to apply for planning permission at all.

How do we do it?

Garden rooms are class as outbuildings, same as a shed (albeit a posh-shed!) Outbuildings are fine to built on most properties so long as they are under 2.5m in height. Easy! All garden rooms from Green Retreats come as standard at a 2.5m height.
