Building regulations for bespoke log cabins play a different role to that of planning permission.
These guidelines are designed to ensure your outdoor huts and gazebos are safe, and apply to log cabins that are more than thirty square meters internally. Many building regulations will not apply to your log cabins, but working with professionals will ensure you stay within the law.
One of the most important building regulations for your garden cabin room is Part A, and this relates to the stability of your structure. Many log cabins are modular, and therefore have the rules of Part A already integrated into the design.
Other regulations must also be examined to see if they apply to your building. These include rulings dealing with issues like fuel storage, drainage and sound insulation. Fire safety is a Part B regulation, and stipulates that your barbeque lodge, school cabin or garden office cabin is fireproof. This will generally only apply if the structures are close to other buildings.
Glazing regulations tend to apply to bespoke log cabins, and state that windows below a certain height are fitted with break safe glass. Part H deals with waste disposal and drainage issues, and could be relevant to some log cabins or hot tub garden rooms.
