Concrete Pad Foundations – Requiring minimal excavation, your RAPOD sits upon small supports lifting the structure off the ground creating the required ventilation gap beneath the building. These pads negate the use for unattractive, unsustainable concrete slabs and are a lot cleaner and more sustainable than conventional systems.

The frame of the building is constructed in KLC Timber, a modified variety of radiata pine with durability and stability properties such that the structural frame of your pod is guaranteed by RAPOD for 10 years and comes particularly protected from insect damage and fungal decay.

The Basics
In most cases planning permission is not required for a RAPOD Garden Room. (Standard Height – No more than 2.5m)

In some cases it can depend on the land you are living on and its natural properties. We can aid you in applying for planning permission and identifying the building regulations.

Please do not hesitate to ask us if you have any questions regarding planning permission.

You can visit the government’s Planning Portal website to find information on planning applications and the process you will need to follow, as well as the regulations that apply should you wish to make the building habitable.
