Information On How To Order An Oeco Garden Room
Once you are ready to order an Oeco garden office, room, studio, lodge, pod or soundproof music room please take the time to read the information below to fully understand the process and basic requirements necessary for the successful installation of our garden buildings.
All our prices include the complete on site installation by our own employed professional construction teams from foundations to internal electrics.
Each Oeco garden structure is typically installed within 5-7 working days (dependent upon size) and normally without the need for planning permission.
The vast majority of our structures are installed under the governments permitted development rules. In brief the building must normally be installed in the rear garden and must not take up more than 50% of your total garden area.
Planning permission would be required for those customers living in A National Park, An Area of Outstanding Beauty, A Conservation Area, The Broads and A World Heritage Site.
For additional information on planning please do not hesitate to contact us.
Location To Boundaries
Garden Rooms, Office, Studio And Pods
Single pitch roof 2.5m high structures under 15m2 (e.g. Up to 5m x 3m) are required to be sited at least 0.5m from any boundary. Single pitch roof 2.5m high structures over 15m2 (Above 5m x 3m) are required to be sited at least 1m from any boundary. Single pitch roof 3m high structures must be located at least 2m from any boundary.
Apex pitch roof 4m high structures (any size) must be located at least 2m from any boundary.
We will endeavour to establish the site conditions before our fitters arrive on site. In order to construct your new garden room on site we need the construction area to be clear of any sheds, trees, rocks and shrubs etc. The ground on which the structure is to be built must be relatively firm and not slope more than a foot within the dimensions of the building.
Our standard prices include the cost of installing a concrete pile foundation system which is suitable in 95% of all installations. If the ground area comprises mainly of deep soft, sandy or top soil customers will have to provide a concrete base or slab prior to the installation.
Site Access And Parking
Our installation teams will need parking at the property for at least one, and normally two large vans. The vans need to be fairly close to the construction area for the duration of the project.
Unrestricted access between the vehicle and the actual construction site is important. We cannot transfer materials through a house, or through a very tight alleyway which twists and turns or has a height restriction of 2m or less. Our fitters will be booked into local accommodation during the construction process and will stay with you until the structure is completed.
Order Confirmation & Deposit
Once you have decided upon the structure size, design style, type of doors and windows and any additional options required please contact us to place your order. Our sales staff will happily advise you on all aspects and provide you with any additional information that you may require prior to ordering,
Upon receipt of an order we will require a 50% deposit of the total order value. Please note this is a fully 100% refundable deposit should you cancel the order prior to the installation date. Once the deposit has been paid a receipt and order confirmation complete with an installation start date will be provided.
Installation Start Date
Our installation teams normally commence construction on a Monday. Our fitting teams cover the whole of the UK.
The installation team will normally arrive at your location in the afternoon on the first day. The teams will then be booked into local accommodation and arrive early each subsequent morning.
On the first day the team will discuss the exact positioning of the room, unload the necessary materials to the site are and start to prepare and install the concrete pile foundations.
Our joiners and installation teams are very experienced at constructing all sizes of garden rooms, offices, studios, lodges, pods and music rooms. During the construction the team will consult with you at every stage of the build.
Our on-site construction process is very bespoke in that you will be able to choose the exact location and position of any doors, fixed glass panels, windows, electrical sockets, lighting, switches and any additional options such as internal walls, partitions and doors.
Once completed our installation team will tidy and clean the garden structure and remove any debris and excess materials from site. They will ask you to inspect the garden building and check all aspects before leaving the site.
On completion of the garden room the balance payment will become due.. Our qualified electrician will then call to test the internal electrics and provide an electrical certificate in readiness for your local electrician to connect a supply from your house to the consumer unit inside the garden building.
