How big should a man cave be?
There is no fit size for a man cave, but it is always important to remain mindful of the size of your existing space and what you wish to use your man cave for. Our expert sales team can guide you on the ideal sized building for your garden however we do offer buildings from 1.2 x 1.8m to 4.8 x 6.0m.

Do I need planning permission for a man cave?
All timber garden structures, including man caves, are subject to planning permission rules; however, the good news is that the majority of our buildings won't require planning permission for installation.
Whether you need planning permission will all depend on where you wish to place the building in your garden and if you should live in an area that has been designated as a national park or similar. Providing certain criteria are met and the building is considered permitted development, you can proceed without needing permission.
In the case that you do require planning permission, our expert team can guide you in the process to ensure it is a smooth, stress-free experience.
