A Summerhouse Can Add Value And Saleability

Adding a summerhouse is a versatile option for those looking to increase their floor space in their existing property. It is also a viable approach for those looking to ultimately increase the resale value of their home. It’s a common problem: your family has grown but your home hasn’t. You could solve it by extending or by upsizing, but both can be costly and disruptive. A third option is to create a room in the garden like a summerhouse.  A simple but versatile structure away from the house that takes advantage of the space in the garden. Summerhouses allow you to expand the space in your home, without intrusive or complicated extensions, while simultaneously adding value.

An article in the property section of The Telegraph states that investing in a garden room can add substantial value to your property. In the example offered, it is reported that an investment of £6,653 could add £35,611 to an average priced home in Surrey.  https://www.telegraph.co.uk/property/uk/add-50000-value-home-just-seven-days/

Planning Permission

Summerhouses do not disturb the existing structure at all, but can add value as well as creating a selling point. Summerhouses aren’t classed as permanent buildings so the same planning permission rules don’t apply. Building regulation consent isn’t applicable making a summerhouse a practical solution in creating additional space.
