Summer houses are deemed to be ‘permitted developments’ which means that planning permission should not be required as long as they adhere to the following rules:
As buildings increase in size they tend to increase in height, but we can manufacture most of our garden buildings to be under 2.5 metres in height, if required. Make sure to check with your local council, as planning permission regulations can vary depending on location. This list is not exhaustive - for more information, please visit the government Planning Portal.
If we didn't build it, we don't sell it. We're proud to say that every garden building is made in our own mill in Leeds. This gives us complete control over the manufacturing, from start to finish, so we can ensure only top-grade timber makes the cut. Our expert craftspeople and precision machinery mean our sheds and log cabins are built to the highest quality – Tigers always stay sharp.
We offer 20-year protection against general timber rot and decay. That said, many people find our sheds last more than 25 years, because we build them to be the toughest around. We treat our timber with a specially formulated preservative, developed over many years – for a weatherproof, lifeproof seal. We call this protective stain our Tiger Skin. It's our iconic mark of quality. It's why, along with our expert 8-point quality check, that spans from forest to factory, you can trust a Tiger to survive.
We’re not afraid to say it – our sheds aren’t the cheapest. But they’re the best value. You get what you pay for. Here are just few of the features you only get with a Tiger:
We only use slow-grown, high-grade FSC-accredited European softwood, sawn in our own mill so we can oversee the quality. Better for you, better for the planet.
