Timber Garages

Timber Garages

A wooden garage from Passmores is attractive to look at, environmentally responsible and excellent value for money.

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's bound to be a building that's right for you.

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°).

For something a bit out of the ordinary please email us a sketch of your requirements and we will be delighted to provide a quotation.

Passmores offer a tiling service within 100 mile radius of our factory in Kent and we will be delighted to quote to supply and fit natural slates, fibre cement slates, interlocking concrete tiles or plain tiles upon request.

A Passmore building clad in sawn featheredge weatherboard, usually stained dark brown or black and under a 35 degree pitch plain tile roof, frequently provides a solution for garaging within the grounds of a listed building.

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.

We have over 35 buildings on display in our showground village in Strood, Kent. As well as a full range of Garden Buildings we also display examples of single and double Garages, Carriage Houses, Open Barns, Equestrian buildings and a Club Range with verandah.

Great service, polite and amenable workers. We are extremely pleased with our new pavilion.

Mrs. S. Kent

I have purchased Workshops from other companies, none of them were as well made as the one from Passmores. As far as the Garage goes its in another league.

We were looking for a traditional style Clubhouse and are very pleased with the quality of the building as well as the design. It was a pleasure dealing with a group of individuals who could not have been more helpful throughout the long process.
