Do I need any permits to install a garden shed?
Before making the purchase, we recommend checking local regulations. The answer depends on the corresponding municipality, and requirements may vary from one municipality to another.
Do I need a building permit to construct a wooden house?
In Spain, the construction of a wooden house is not always allowed by municipalities. Legislation regarding prefabricated wooden houses requires compliance with specific regulations. Each locality establishes its limitations and conditions for construction, so it is advisable to inquire about the current urban planning regulations in the municipal area. To obtain a certificate of habitability and permits for water and electricity connections, a dwelling must be built in an urban area with a technical project supervised by an architect.
What is included in the shed kit?
The kit includes all prefabricated wooden pieces, the necessary hardware to assemble the house structure, doors and windows, floor and roof boards. For an additional cost, we offer optional products such as asphalt shingles, thermal insulation for the floor and roof, etc., as well as assembly services.
Not included: technical project, construction permit, foundation, electrical installations, HVAC, plumbing, sanitary fixtures, appliances, furniture, or the application of wood protector.
What are the windows like?
The windows are tilt-and-turn made of knot-free laminated glued pine wood, with double glazed tempered glass.
What does the insulation kit consist of?
The thermal insulation kit for the floor and roof consists of rigid panels, such as Kingspan Therma TP10 with a thickness of 30 mm or similar, OSB boards, and screws. The insulating material is a rigid polyisocyanurate panel with an aluminum coating.
What type of wood protector do you offer, and how is it applied?
We offer Remmers HK Lasur, a highly resistant wood protector specially designed for outdoor use on exposed wood. It has impregnating action, leaving an “open-pore” finish that allows the wood to breathe to regulate moisture and facilitate its release. The finish quality is entirely natural, showcasing the wood’s grain. It should be applied directly to clean and dry wood. It can be renewed without the need for sanding.
When applying the wood protector, it is essential to observe the following:
- Stir the paint with a stick every 20 minutes to prevent the pigment from settling at the bottom.
- Apply two coats.
- Use a brush only for painting (never use a roller) and ensure an even layer.
- Avoid drips and runs of paint, as they leave darker stains that are impossible to match later.

What type of foundation do you recommend for wooden sheds?
The shed should be constructed on a stable and level base. The suitable foundation type depends on the ground and the size of the house. You can find more information about different foundations here:

Can I assemble the shed myself?

What is the process of building a large wooden house or a bedroom log cabin?
- After choosing the model, but before placing the order, we send you the plans so that you request a building permit from the building department of your local town hall.
- Build the foundation of the house (we don’t do it). To lay the foundation and prepare the electrical and plumbing installations, we send the house plans. With the help of the plans, a local company will carry out the works.
- We deliver the house kit and carry out the assembly. The result is a house assembled and ready for the next steps.
- A local company will paint it and install everything you need to live in, such as bathrooms, kitchen, appliances, furniture, etc.
