Wooden Garages Made From The Finest Swedish Timber

Wooden Garages Made From The Finest Swedish Timber

Passmores wooden garages are attractive, environmentally responsible and excellent value for money. 

Made from ethnically-sourced forest in Northern Sweden, each piece of timber is hand-machined at our manufacturing centre in Rochester, Kent. Our depth of knowledge, experience and expertise, means your garage will be built to last. 

As part of our production process, we use strict controls to ensure every timber building is built to the highest standards and with the environment in mind. Each garage comes with full certification under the Forest Stewardship Council® Chain of Custody scheme (FSC® License Code FSC-C013961). This means we can trace back the source of timber that made your garage. 

 

Wooden Garages Size Options

Our traditional free standing wooden garages are available in 30 standard sizes from 4.8m x 3.0m (16' x 10') to 7.2m x 7.2m (24' x 24') so there will most certainly be a building that is right for you and your home.

Every timber garage that we manufacture can be specified with a 22° pitch boarded and felted roof or with a steeper pitch to suit conventional tiles or slates. Typical roof pitch for slates and interlocking concrete tiles is 25°- 30° and 35° for plain tiles (maximum pitch on 7.2m (24') span is 30°).

Tiled Roof Wooden Garages

Tiled Roof Wooden Garages

Our wooden garages are ready to be tiled, once built. The strength of the roof's construction means they can be finished in a number of high-quality tile designs to match the external aesthetics of your home. 

Tiled wooden garages certainly give a more premium feel to your home than a standard felt roof finish. When you opt for tiles, we have options that include high-quality inter-locking concrete tiles or standard plain-finish tiles. A tiled roof also provides your garage with greater reslience against the weather over the long-term.

Frequently Asked Questions

This will usually depend on the size, height and location of the proposed new building.

If you are positioning the building close to a boundary or in front of the building line of your home when viewed from the road, then planning consent is usually required.

If the building is to be behind the house, more than 2.0m from a boundary and provided the ridge height is less than 4.0m, then you may not need permission, assuming it is for non business use. Most garden sheds and chalets therefore do not need local authority permission.

However, if you live in a listed property or within a conservation area then planning permission is nearly always required.

The Government Planning Portal www.planningportal.gov.uk contains a wealth of additional information and includes an interactive guide covering most circumstances.
