What is a wooden garage?

Wood garages and timber car ports, provide additional storage space for domestic dwellings at a cost effective price. They are much cheaper to build than traditional brick or block buildings, and are much more sympathetic to the environment as they use natural sustainable materials. Wooden garages and car ports are a perfect environment for modern and vintage car storage, as they maintain a much more ambient temperature than concrete or brick. They are the damp free option that blends naturally into the garden surroundings.   

Our Wooden Garages

Wooden garages from Warwick Buildings are available in a wide variety of sizes and shapes, covering single garages, double garages, triple garages and even larger buildings. We can either build to our standard sizes or bespoke square or rectangle designs. Simply use our free online design tool to build your perfect, wooden garage, timber cart lodge or single slope buildings that don't require planning permission (subject to conditions).

Timber
Cart Lodges 

Built from the same materials as our other timber garages, the wooden cart lodges exchange the front garage door for posts and curved bracing. This popular design gives the appearance of an Oak Framed garage at a fraction of the cost, especially when clad in feather edge boarding. Use our online price calculator to design and build your cart lodge, choosing the size, cladding and roof materials, along with any personal doors and windows.

Mono Roof
Garages

Designed specifically to avoid be within permitted development, the Mono Roof garages are 2.5m high for planning permission reasons. Available in single, double, triple and quadruple sizes up to 6.1m deep, the mono roof wooden garage is a modern addition to both traditional and contemporary houses. Use our online price calculator to design and build your cart lodge, choosing the size, cladding and roof materials, along with any personal doors and windows.

Wooden Workrooms

If you like the look of the garden rooms, but only need the construction level of a wooden garage, then the timber workroom may be the perfect solution. In reality, it is a garage with a wooden floor, with garden room doors and windows instead of garage doors. If this fits the bill, then contact us to explain how you would like one of designs transformed using our standard components. It may be that you don't need any garage doors for a ride on lawnmower, or you have the skills to insulate and line the inside yourself. Either way, we are here to help create the perfect workshop.

What will your wooden garage be

Storage. Workshop. Business Unit.

Our customers lead the way in how to create a garage workshop, that stores modern and vintage cars ranging from Sprites and Midgets to Cobras and Mustangs. So if you've got an Aston, a Ferrari or a Maserati, and would like a storage solution, that's insulated with a car lift, then contact us for details.

What I should have done

Take a look at our customer experience, as he lists the 5 things that he would have done differently when building his new wooden garage.

What else do I need?

Wooden garages will require a concrete pad and a single course of bricks, set to the plan that we provide. Because this is an important part of the project, it makes sense to read more about what's involved via the link below.

Wood

Established in 1988

Warwick Buildings have been providing garden rooms and offices for well over 30 years, maintaining the staff and improving the knowledge base, as we constantly strive to improve. The family business has a wealth of knowledge in the industry, and is proud that over 50& of the new business comes from recommendations. The following gallery provides just a snapshot of the 20,000 plus buildings that we have installed since we started out to change the world.  

How we build our wooden garages

Our garages are constructed in sectional format, meaning that the wooden panels are pre-built in the factory ready for efficient assembly on site. The advantage of this system saves time on site and material wastage combining functionality with a cost effective design. This also allows better quality materials to be used during construction at an affordable price, built by trained craftsmen and assembled by skilled erecting teams. A triple skin layer skins the PEFC redwood timber frame and includes a DPC that sits directly onto the customer's base, consisting of concrete and a single course of bricks. The frame itself is bolted directly into the concrete base, with our individually designed fixings, that are placed within the cavity frame. These fixings can be hidden later if required, when paneling the inside (if desired).

Personal doors are pre fitted into the sections, as are any windows that are added into the customer's individual design, and the garage doors are simply fixed into place with minimum fuss on the day.

The roof trusses are spanned with purlins, to support the sterling board, breathable membrane and final roof covering, with the calculations for the timbers easily passing structural regulations. Additional overhangs are also included to protect the building at the eaves, and provide a much more sympathetic appearance to the pitched roof.

Our teams of fitters install single and double garages within  single day, whilst larger buildings can take two or three days on site.

Do wooden garages need permission?

Great News... A wooden garage is within permitted development

Wooden garages are classed as outbuildings and are therefore considered to be permitted development. You must still abide my some rules which are as follows: 

Not to cover half the garden 

Behind the front line of the house.

No more than 2.5m high if close to the boundary.

Buildings more than 2m away from the boundary can be 3m tall for a flat roof and 4m tall for a pitched roof.

I need a taller height timber garage, and close to the boundary 

What are my options?

We would recommend contacting the local council, and putting in a planning application. It isn't that daunting, and here's a low down of what is required. 

1. Elevation drawings - we can help you with those.

2. Two online maps (from planning portal) to show the location of your site, and the position of the garage on the plot.

3. Fill out the form on the Planning Portal site - you are having an outbuilding. Please note that the form covers everything you can think of, but some or lots do not apply to you, so you may need to add 'not applicable' to some questions.

4. Pay the fee via the online payment system.

5. Wait 6-8 weeks for a decision. It is usually favourable if you can demonstrate a need for a wooden garage, especially as it is considered a temporary structure.
