There are NO Scams – Short Cuts – Tricks This will entail you submitting detailed drawings, sizes, and profiles of what you would like to the planners.

Pay a planning application fee, then wait and see if you will be allowed your dream cabin.

So at this very early stage, unless you have not only planning but detailed planning consent including building control regulations, this is only a dream!

A lot of people are simply not aware of these facts, start getting themselves all excited calling and emailing for quotes. But the very simple facts are 90% of residential planning applications are refused.

Why Are They Refused?

There is a lot of confusion around the way different Local Authorities handle requests for this sort of application.

Putting it simply.

Once Planning Consent is issued. Sometime in the future, someone could apply to change that Log Cabin into a full blow domestic brick-built house.

This is the main reason why 95% of applications for domestic residential log cans are refused.

  • Size of the Cabin
  • Timber Thickness
  • Type of roof covering
  • The distance the fitters have to carry the building to its base

Above are just a few of many factors that will drastically change the fitting prices they charge

Size of cabin 

Obviously the larger the building the more time it will take to assemble along with the complexity of that building. Does it have a Veranda? Overhanging Roof? Recessed Doors? Odd angles on the Roof?

Timber Thickness

Nowadays buildings are available in many timber thickness, we are seeing some suppliers using very thin 19mm boards and calling them log cabins?

To us, that is thinner than the timber we use on a workshop or heavy duty shed. 28mm / 44mm and even 70mm or the norm.

The issue is some of these very thin lightweight boards are prone to twisting and warping so can in fact take longer to erect and a good quality 44mm timber.

So as you can see we will need to know the full product details of the building you have bought. copy and paste the link, that way they will know exactly what building you have bought

Type of roof Covering 

Some cabins come with basic lightweight roofing felt that is just stapled or tacked on, others come with overlapping felt shingles which take considerably more time to line up and fix.

Then you have to top-grade torch on roof coverings where the extra thick polyester felt is heat bonded to the timber roof.

As you can clearly see a big difference in the quality of roof coverings and the amount of time it will take to correctly fit that covering.

THE GROWING POPULARITY OF MICRO HOMES

There is a growing trend of the purchasing of micro-homes or tiny houses that people are buying because of several factors that make sense to a lot of people.

Many of these homes are no larger than a couple of hundred square feet and have minimal room for much else than very basic living accommodations.

One big advantage is the cost of maintaining a home is incredibly lower than that of a more traditional home.

A typical micro home may have a small living area right next to a very small kitchen, with an adjoining bathroom area, and the sleeping area can be on a second level or a loft.

The entire square footage may be no more than 500 or 600 square feet. The home may be sitting on wheels so that it can move wherever the owner wishes to go.

One builder of the homes says, “If you don’t like your neighbor, just move!” The homes are relatively inexpensive, ranging from around £10,000 to £45,000 and can be put together by the factory of the manufacturer.

If it is mobile, you can park at any location that would accept a motor home or a travel trailer, or on any land space where it is legal to do so.

You will find some of the homes like this in some pretty remote areas as in most cases they do not require planning consent as they are effectively mobile homes – like a caravan so can be moved if requested to do so.

A selection of suppliers including ourselves can provide you a wide variety of homes that range in size from 261 square feet all the way up to 874 square feet.

They also have cottages that are larger and are designed to be constructed to be built on-site by your own contractor. There are multiple floor plans for each of their homes, with some homes being up to 24 feet in length.

There are upstairs and downstairs bedroom arrangements and many kitchen designs. All of the Tumbleweed homes are built on wheels, except for the cottages. They are made of wood and are very attractive.

Custom Made Micro Homes

Here at City Sheds and cabins, we will be more than pleased to quote you for a custom made, bespoke micro or mini home, either fixed or mobile. You are only limited by two things, your budget available to you and your imagination!

Other examples of micro homes are similar in that they are very small and utilitarian in space but put together in such a way as to be fully functional and comfortable.

They can withstand normal weather fluctuations of winter and summer, and if a serious storm threatens, the home can be hooked up to your vehicle and you can just drive away, without having to worry about being swept away by the storm.

Some people might be put off by the smaller space, but proponents of the concept claim that you can only be in one place at a time anyway, so the overall space of the house doesn’t matter.

There is a marked tendency to not have a lot of clutter, perhaps because you don’t have a lot of stuff. The micro-homes can also be used as a second structure on the property of a more traditional home, such as use as a guesthouse, an office, and rooms for returning children or aged parents.
