Wooden Workshops

Prime Stables design and install a wide range of bespoke wooden workshops which provide a fantastic outdoor space for a hobby room, DIY area or even additional storage. Made from durable, pressure-treated timber, our premium wooden garden workshops are built to last and withstand inclement weather conditions and frequent usage.

We build a wide range of timber frame wooden workshops to suit your budget. Our Royal range is manufactured to the same high standard as our Prime range, but with the addition of our most popular extras, including matching black ridge, hook and band hinges and gable end vents. Whatever your requirements, our bespoke service allows you to decide which features work best for you.

The Benefits of Timber Workshops

When in need of extra storage space or an additional room reserved for hobbies or DIY projects, a wooden workshop or shed is an excellent all-round solution. There are several advantages which are unique to timber frame workshops, including:

  • Durability: Garden workshops require superior durability in order to withstand varying outdoor conditions. Timber is an excellent material for these types of buildings due to its incredibly hard-wearing quality, maintaining its integrity to create long-lasting structures.
  • Sustainability: Timber is one of the most sustainable materials available, given that it is naturally renewable and has a lower carbon footprint than other construction materials.
  • Cost-effective: Outdoor timber buildings provide a cost-effective solution for extra storage. With high-quality timber coming as standard and with all of our wooden workshops manufactured in-house, our competitive pricing ensures that your timber building is worth every penny.

Our Range of Premium Heavy Duty Garden Workshops

Our entire range of heavy-duty garden workshops is built using the highest-quality, pressure-treated timber to ensure that your structure is not only fit for purpose, but also provides an eye-catching addition to your outdoor space. 

Our team personally designs, manufactures, delivers and installs each of our wooden garden workshops, overseeing the entire process in order to deliver superior-quality buildings every time.

Will a Wooden Workshop Require Planning Permission?

It is always recommended to explore whether your project requires planning permission ahead of time, to avoid additional costs or delays later in the process. For freestanding wooden workshops, planning permission is most commonly not required, however there are certain stipulations for this to be applicable, including:

  • The building should be single storey, and if placed less than 2m from the property boundary, should have a maximum height of 2.5m from ground level.
  • If the building is placed more than 2m from the property boundary, a garden workshop can have a maximum eave height of 2.5m, with an overall height of 4m for a dual-pitched roof and 3m for a pent roof.
  • The purpose of the building should not be liveable accommodation.
  • No more than 50% of land around the original house should be taken up by the wooden workshop.

Additional consideration must be taken if:

  • You intend to build the carport or garage within the curtilage of a listed building, even if it is intended to blend in and offer a similar rustic appeal.
  • You intend to build the carport or garage at the side of a property on designated land.

Our planning permission guide provides more information, but to ensure that you are complying with regulations in your area, you can contact your local planning authority (LPA).
