Garden Shed and Car port question
 
1 Attachment(s)
Hello,
Does anyone know where or who to buy this this kind of construction from? I am looking to have a garden shed / garage, and this looks like a good option. Thanks

Obi can supply something similar.

Your first stop should be your local planning office to understand whether you can build one.

Thanks, I am studying my local Building and zoning regulations.

As for OBI, I checked but I only found some on OBI.de, and there all made of wood.

Any other suggestions welcome.

Bauhaus also has some I believe.

In addition to Obi and Bauhaus, look at Hornbach.

Oh, and start buttering up your neighbors now. Before going too far you might want to informally canvas them to get an idea of where they stand. If one objects to your building application you might find you have a long, bumpy, and expensive road ahead of you. (Yes, even for a small garden shed!)

Two things that make or break a building application in my little village: using a local architect/builder/engineer (as opposed to an outsider) and Vitamin B (or lack thereof).

Of course, you might live in a more laissez-faire community than I do. YMMV.

Very much, this.

Maybe you shouldn't be looking into some DIY solution from a store but instead the more expensive solution of getting a local builder to put one in.
