Garages and Outbuildings

empl-1Henley Construction has built many garages and outbuildings all over the Yorkshire region and beyond. Existing garages and outbuildings can also be adapted and transformed into many different uses, whether its stables for horses, storage or a kid’s play room. Even if it’s simply a structural shell to be later transformed into a ‘Granny flat’. We have also been commissioned to even build bespoke outdoor wood fired ovens in both refractory concrete and fire bricks.

empl-2If you want to put up small detached buildings such as a garden shed or summerhouse in your garden, building regulations will not normally apply if the floor area of the building is less than 15 square metres and contains NO sleeping accommodation.

empl-3 A typical floor for a garage generally consists of hardcore, sand blinding, DPM (damp proof membrane) and concrete. It is considered to be good practice to place reinforced mesh within the concrete as this can reduce the chances of cracking from the load (weight) of a vehicle.  The floor will not normally need to be insulated.
