Single & Double Garages
At Dunster House we offer a massive range of single and double garages as well as carports in all shapes and sizes. No matter the space you have in your garden and your personal preferences, our selection will not disappoint.
Our single garages are enough to fit in small gardens but spacious enough for your vehicle to go in and out without worrying about damaging your car. The double timber garages provide ample space for 2 cars as well as some extra room for storage.
No matter which size timber garage you choose, rest assured your selection will last for many years to come with our premium features which are included as standard in the price. All our timber garages come with 4mm toughened glass in our windows and doors for increased safety and security. A much better alternative to 3mm horticultural glass, commonly found in garden buildings. Our toughened glass is a lot harder to break and if it’s ever broken, it breaks into small pieces rather than large shards. In addition, it’s also much harder to scratch than the plastic alternatives styrene, acrylic or Perspex.
In addition to our fantastic optional extras that will help you personalise your wooden garage building to reflect your needs and style. Why not add decorative fascia to your wooden garage? Our Alpine style fascia pack is perfect if you’re looking for a stylish finish to your timber garage. Likewise, you can paint your single and double wooden garages with our high quality wall preservatives. Our range of colours will not only add character but also protect the timber from the elements and prolong the life of your garage.
Wooden Garage Workshops For Sale UK
If you’re looking for a superior alternative to a brick garage then our wooden garages might just be what you’re after. They are not only cheaper but built with the highest quality materials and include features that others may not offer. Add space and value to your home with premium quality wooden garages. Our wooden garages are made with slow grown spruce and pressure treated perimeter bearers that protect the lowest part of the garage against rot and insect infestation for up to 10 years.
We know how important it is to prevent condensation build up in your wooden garage building. For this reason, we have included ventilation as part of our timber garage kits. We use two pairs of plastic base plates, one round and one square. The external round vents are chamfered to help direct water away from the hole, the inner square vents have an integral fly screen to prevent insects from entering through the vent. The pair of vents allows a flow of air through your garage to help keep out musty smells.
Pressure Treated Garages
Our pressure treated garages are the ideal solution for your car, motorcycle or gardening equipment. However, don’t confuse them with our range of timber garages. Our pressure treated garages boast an important difference to our massive range of timber garages and workshops. That is, every piece of timber is pressure treated, not just the perimeter bearers.
Pressure treatment is a much more costly but effective form of treatment compared to dip treatment, as we use a large tank that uses high pressure to force treatment deep into the wood. We take the extra step and pre-cut the timber before treatment so the ends won’t be exposed. Due to this, all of our pressure treated timber carries a genuine 10-year guarantee against fungal decay and insect infestation.
Wooden Carports Garages
Our wooden car ports offer easy access to your cars and vehicles without having to worry about opening and locking doors behind you. A heavy-duty solution with full pressure treated timber that will stay free from rot and insect infestation for up to 10 years which is something not many competitors can offer.
We only use full lengths of timber in our wooden carports and timber garages, which is something we’re proud of. We don’t glue separate offcut pieces together with finger joints. You can rest assured that our wooden carport kits will not only be stronger but look better too.
Workshop Garage For Sale
Home improvements and DIY projects will never be easier if you have one of our own workshop garages to house them in. Enjoy your hobbies in your own space and free up your home from garden tools or leftover bits of craft.
Our garden workshops will impress you with their high-quality features such as the adjustable storm braces that tie the garage roof to the rest of the building. This way, the workshop building is able to withstand stronger winds and allow for the natural movement of the garage which helps prevent gaps appearing between wall logs as they settle and move.
Additionally, our wooden workshops come with either 2 or 4-point locking systems. Our industry leading 4-point locking system features a hook, locking latch and two roller locks. Whereas the 2-point locking system benefits from a hasp and staple fastener which is fitted to the garage door.
Maintain Your Log Cabin Garage
Our experts recommend choosing the right treatment for your log cabin garage and that you treat it as soon as it’s built. At Dunster House, we offer a variety of wall preservatives that are solvent and water based. In addition to selecting the best log cabin treatment, it’s also important that you re-apply treatment when required. This will depend on the log cabin preservative you have chosen.
Furthermore, creating an environment that aids moisture control is an important element in maintaining your log garage. Make sure measures are in place for the roof, foundations and surrounding drainage to help shake off extra moisture and prevent rot and insect infestations.
We use pressure treated perimeter bearers to protect the lowest part of the building. We use a large pressure treatment tank that forces the treatment deep into the timber at high pressure. Due to this effective process, we offer our customers a genuine 10-year guarantee against rot and insect infestation on the bearers.
To ensure no gaps form between logs, our wood garages feature adjustable storm braces. The storm braces attached to the wall logs can be tightened or loosened to allow for the timber to settle.
Don’t forget, your garage is made of timber, a natural product that will contrast and expand according to the UK’s unpredictable weather. Once the timber garage is erected, there will be a period of “settling” as the wood reacts and adjusts to surrounding climate. Splits and cracks may occur over time but that shouldn’t compromise the quality of your garden building.
The use of interlocking tongue and groove timber in our log cabins help with the strength and stability of the walls as well as the natural expansion and contrast of the timber.

Planning Permission For Garages & Carports
You may have found exactly what you’re looking for, a wood garage to your exact taste and measurements. That’s great! However, before placing an order for your garden garage, it’s important to familiarise yourself with any planning permissions or building regulations that may apply in your area.
The good news is that most of our log garages and carports don’t require planning permission. This is due to our unique designs that utilise the maximum width and height available to us. Giving you as much space as possible, without the need to opt for tall garages.
Although we have a wide range of under 2.5m high log garages, some exceptions may still apply. This is why it’s vital that you check whether you’ll need planning permission or not.
To make it easier for you we created a quick step Planning Permission questionnaire to help you determine whether you’ll need planning permission.
Head over to our Planning Permission Quiz and the official government site for more info on building regulations.
