Summer garden houses made of the best-quality wood
Lugarde uses the best quality timber for its houses. The timber comes from the cold climates of Northern Europe and because of the low temperatures trees grow at a much slower rate. That means that the growth rings are closer together, resulting in our timber being more stable and durable.
All of our timber is kiln dried in specially designed drying rooms to approx. 14%-16% moisture content, as a result, wood shrinkage is significantly reduced. At Lugarde we also cut all wooden components ourselves to ensure that everything fits seamlessly together. The corner connections of our wooden summer houses protect are suitably water and wind resistant. At Lugarde we have the most beautiful bespoke summer houses available, even with panel systems for summer houses.

In many cases, you may not need planning permission for a summer house in your garden, as long as certain conditions are met. These conditions often include.
Size and height restrictions: There are usually limits on the size and height of the structure that can be built without planning permission. These limits may vary depending on your location, so it’s important to check the specific regulations in your area.
Permitted development rights: In some cases, you can take advantage of permitted development rights, which allow certain types of development without the need for planning permission. However, these rights may have limitations, such as restrictions on the location within your garden or if your property is in a conservation area.
Distance from boundaries: There may be requirements regarding the distance between the summer house and the boundaries of your property. Again, these requirements can vary, so it’s important to check the regulations specific to your area.
Land use and purpose: The purpose of the summer house is also a factor to consider. If it is intended for residential use or as an additional living space, it may be subject to different regulations compared to a structure used solely for storage or as a garden shed.
It’s important to note that if your property is a listed building, located in a conservation area, or subject to any additional planning restrictions, obtaining planning permission may be necessary regardless of the size or purpose of the summer house.
To ensure compliance with local regulations, it is recommended to reach out to your local planning department or consult with a professional architect or planner who can provide specific guidance based on your location and circumstances.
To keep your summer house warm during winter, there are several strategies you can consider.
Insulation: Proper insulation is crucial for retaining heat inside the summer house. Insulate the walls, floor and roof using materials such as fiberglass, foam boards, or insulation blankets. This helps prevent heat loss and maintains a comfortable temperature inside.
Double-glazed windows: Install double-glazed or thermal windows to reduce heat transfer. These windows have two layers of glass with an insulating gap in between, which helps retain heat and minimize drafts.
Weatherstripping and sealing: Seal any gaps or cracks around windows, doors, and other openings to prevent drafts. Use weatherstripping materials such as foam strips, door sweeps, or caulking to create a tight seal and keep cold air from entering.
Heating options: Consider installing a heating system in your summer house. The choice of heating depends on your preferences, budget, and availability of utilities. Some common options include electric heaters, wood-burning stoves, or even underfloor heating.
Curtains or blinds: Use heavy curtains or thermal blinds to add an extra layer of insulation. Close them during the night or when the room is not in use to retain heat and prevent heat loss through windows.
Floor coverings: Use rugs or carpets on the floor to provide additional insulation and prevent cold drafts from coming up through the floorboards.
External shading and landscaping: During the summer months, consider using external shading devices such as awnings or trees to block direct sunlight from heating up the summer house. This helps maintain a cooler interior temperature, which can also assist in keeping it warmer during the winter.
Proper ventilation: Although it may seem counterintuitive, good ventilation is essential to prevent moisture buildup, which can lead to dampness and mold. Ensure that your summer house has proper ventilation, such as vents or extractor fans, to maintain air circulation without excessive heat loss.
Remember, safety is paramount when using heating appliances, so follow all manufacturer’s instructions and guidelines to prevent any hazards.
Additionally, consult with a professional if you have specific concerns or require assistance in optimizing the heating system for your summer house.
