Benefits of Wooden Sheds and Garages
What makes our wooden garden sheds better than those our competitors have to offer? The answer is very simple: We don’t cut corners on the quality or design. Whether it is a garden storage shed, a workshop shed, or a wooden garage, we think that everything must be beautiful and long-lasting. We focus on designing products that will complement your garden and home. All our wooden garden sheds have been designed as carefully as our garden summer houses.
Wide Range of Products
Most wooden garages are small and don’t have enough space to accommodate your vehicle and a storage shed. Our dedicated Hansa Garden designers are focusing on creating multifunctional cabins that meet all of your needs. We offer a wide range of products including several garage and carport combos, double garages, wooden garages with storage rooms, and wooden carports with tool sheds.
You can choose between double garage doors or ‘up & over’ garage doors. Classic standard double doors are more affordable and easier to install, especially if you plan on assembling the kit yourself. On the other hand, timber garages with ‘Up & over doors’ are more user friendly and match the modern look. You can add a motor to the doors to make them self-opening and closing by using a remote control, so there are remote systems that can be operated from inside the car for both options.
You can change features such as wall thickness, windows, and doors and choose the options that are more convenient for you. These changes can be made during the wooden garage or wooden shed installation without the need to make remarks or changes when ordering.
Our wooden garden sheds and timber frame carport kits come with solid flooring and strong 28-44mm or 70mm thick walls, screws and fixings, premium garage doors and windows together with detailed assembly instructions. All you need to set up your timber frame garage or garden shed are tools, two adult DIY persons, and two days.
Once your wooden outbuilding has been installed, it is time to pick your favourite colours and finish the exterior. We recommend and supply Remmers HK Stain. It is one of the best decorative wood preservative stains you can buy in the UK to paint and protect your timber garage or any other wooden garden building. All our flat pack garages and she are supplied with black roofing felt. We recommend that you spend a little extra on Icopal roof shingles to upgrade the outer look of your wooden garage and extend the life span of your roof. Icopal roof shingles have fifteen-year factory guarantees. They have been tested in the roughest weather conditions of Finland.
A safe place for your vehicles
Our timber-framed garages provide a safe environment for your vehicles. As mentioned above, our wooden car garages are carefully designed to accommodate all of your tools and equipment and you can opt for a garage and garden shed combo. A timber garage is not only a safe haven for your treasured vehicle. It has space for your DIY projects as well as for the storage of your garden equipment. All of our wooden garden buildings, whether we’re talking about small wooden sheds or spacious double garages have 40mm walls or 70 mm walls, so quality is guaranteed. Additionally, our products are all waterproof packed during shipping, so your product will arrive at its destination in pristine condition.
Our wooden sheds are eco-friendly. We use the best type of wood – slow-grown Nordic spruce that is harvested from sustainably-managed forests. This makes our wooden garages and garden sheds durable, robust, and allergen-free. Minimizing the impact that our products have on the environment is very important to use, so we focus on sourcing our raw materials by using clean and efficient trucks.
Another notable benefit of our timber garages and garden storage sheds is the quick assembly. A timber cabin, be it a small garden shed or a large double garage can be assembled in a matter of days by just to people with some DIY experience. The assembly process is easy – the first step is ordering your wooden carport kit online, the next one is waiting for it to arrive, and the third and last step is setting it up in your backyard. If you don’t have a lot of time on your hands or DIY experience, we recommend opting for our assembly services. In doing so, our team of experts will build your timber frame carport kit or your garden shed in one or two days.

How to build a wooden garage/garden shed?
Wondering how to build a wooden garage and storage shed? Building a single purpose outbuilding or a garage and shed combo consists of several important steps. First, you need to assess the available space, measure it, clear it, and level it. An important part of the assembly of a wooden cabin is the foundation. The best foundation for a timber garage is a flat and stable concrete foundation.
There are many suitable bases for wooden car garages, but paving slabs and concrete are the most popular choices among our UK customers. Making a concrete base is a costly and time-consuming process, but this type of cabin base is stable, long-lasting and probably the best possible base for a wooden garage as it suits any size and type of outbuilding. Paving slabs are a good base for wooden garages and carports. They are easy to build, affordable, and don’t involve as much work as concrete slabs. Another advantage of paving slabs is their aesthetic value and the fact that they can easily be extended or removed altogether if you don’t need them anymore.
When it comes to garden sheds, most clients will opt for a Rapidpads base or a concrete base. These are the best types of bases for wooden garden sheds. Rapidpads base can be achieved for almost three times less budget compared to a concrete base. Since it is still a very stable and safe base for almost any type of wooden garden shed, Rapidpads are gaining huge popularity.
Not sure how to build a base for your wooden garage and carport? The Summerhouse24 assembly team can take care of the base, installation of the timber frame carport kit, insulation as well as certified electrical works.
Do you need planning permission for wooden garages and garden storage sheds?
According to the UK planning laws, timber garages and garden sheds are considered ‘outbuildings’. In general, planning permission for wooden car garages and storage sheds varies from one property to another.
In general, ‘outbuildings’ belong to the category ‘permitted developments’. This means that no planning permission is required for a wooden garage or a wooden garden shed as long as it follows a few rules:
- It doesn’t take up more than 50% of your garden or the total area of land surrounding the main property.
- It is not built further forward of the main elevation than the main house.
- It will not be used as a permanent living space.
- It is a single-storey structure without balconies, raised verandas, or raised platforms attached to it.
- If it is has a dual-pitched roof, the wooden car garage can’t exceed the maximum total height of 4 meters and the maximum eaves height is 2.5 meters.
- When built within 2 meters of the boundary of the main house, the wooden garage can’t exceed 2.5 meters in height.
In the case of Listed Buildings, it isn’t allowed to build any outbuildings on the property and the grounds surrounding it. Also, if your property belongs to the category National Park, conservation areas, areas of national beauty, or world heritage sites, you will have to ensure that your wooden car garage complies with certain rules.
According to these rules, you cannot build a garage or a garden shed that is larger than 10sq. meters in total if it is being placed less than 20 meters away from an outer wall of the property.
It is important to mention that building planning isn’t an exact science and there is no precise formula. Each situation is different and there can be exceptions, so it’s always wise to check with your Local Planning Authority before you have your outbuilding installed.

How much are garden sheds and wooden carport kits?

The prices of our garden sheds will vary based on size, layout, wall thickness, and the number of windows and doors.
Timber garages prices start from £3000. This is the minimum to get all necessary details and components delivered. Additionally, you need a good and stable base and you may consider our assembly service depending on your DIY skills and the time you have. The cost of a concrete base, including materials and work, is around £1500-£2200 and using professionals to get your garage installed will cost approximately £900-£1250. Taking into consideration all the above costs, meaning that all you do is order your choice of timber frame carport kit and leave everything else to professionals, you can still have your garage built within a £6000 budget.
All of our wooden garages used to have 44mm wall thickness. But lately, we have created many similar 70mm wall models – 70mm is much more solid and sturdy, but of course also more expensive. We don’t offer the cheapest products on the market because we only produce sheds starting from 44mm walls. This makes our sheds more expensive, but they are also of better quality, stronger and sturdier sheds. This is a conscious choice and we don’t want to compete with companies offering low quality cheap sheds.
