Questions and answears

Do I need planning permission to install a garden Room?

You can install a garden room with up to 25Sqm of interior floor space without planning permission. So most rooms will be exempted from planning under Class 3 of the General Exempted Development provisions of the planning regulations.

What are the terms of payment?

Three stage payments

  • 30% Deposit
  • 30% when foundations are complete
  • 40% when room is delivered.
What is your exterior cladding made from?

We have two types of cladding composite and timber. 

1. Timber cladding – Black Charred Larch Timber.

By using the ancient Japanese Technique of ‘Shou Sugi Ban’ to weatherproof and preserve the timber it is burnt to a black charred timber finish. We use this look to create our minimal Scandinavian design look. This finish can fit perfectly into garden designs and becomes an ideal backdrop for planting. 

We can also finish our timber structures in Cedar cladding as this is always a popular option.

2. Composite Cladding

For a maintenance free option we have composite cladding. 

Who will build the garden rooms?

Zen Space staff will build all bespoke and timber structures on site. The average build time will be two weeks onsite. Our modular maintenance free range will come prebuilt and lifted on site with a crane.

What type of windows and door do you use?

We install PVC double glazing and  Aluminium double or triple glazing on request.
