The Potting Shed

The Potting Shed is a high end space for additional storage such as bikes, garden items or glamping units. 

The design allows for either a small porch cut out area or larger veranda along one side. 

Customise your Potting Shed by installing a wood burner, adding additional windows or replacing the standard plywood internal walls with a natural plaster.


If your space is to be for renting as accomodation then you will require business use planning permission. Have a read of our planning guide to help you navigate the route for your project. Alternatively you can give us a call to discuss your project.


The Potting Shed will be prefabricated at our workshop and brought to the site and erected there. We bring the space to site flat packed and then erect and finish on site. This space will have a structural timber frame and then is wrapped in a sheet timber material (plywood or OSB) before the exterior material is applied to the outside of the structure. We are a solutions-based business and can solve most access issues to get a space into your preferred location.



The materials are subtle and durable allowing for regular use and for the cabin to complement its surroundings. The Potting Shed comes as standard using these materials:
  • Structure : Timber structure (Timber frame or stud)  
  • Insulation: Optional Upgrade (shed) Essential if cabin
  • External Cladding: Black VM Zinc crimpt seam or Tata Urban colourcoat
  • Internal walls: Call for options
  • Windows/door: double glazed Rationel windows and door

We specify fittings and fixtures from leading brands that we work with such as Rationel windows, Clearview stoves and Lindab guttering. We can tweak the specification as required though the cost may vary. Grains, textures and colours may vary from those shown.


We recognise that by adapting a design and introducing you to further options it will give you the flexibility to tailor the aesthetics and functionality of the space and ensure its specific to your project. This Concept was developed as a shed yet could easily be customised into contemporary cabin space.

Simple design amendments can often be undertaken for a small charge, although changes that affect the structure, will result in re-engineering and remodelling the design will have a larger impact on the final design and build costs.

Life Space Cabins Service 

We specialise in the design and build of amazing smaller spaces. We like to take responsibility and have fun with each of our projects. Each project will come with a varying need for project management, we can take care of the whole project or agree on a suitable package of works for your budget.

As standard Life Space Cabins will offer guidance on helping you choose the right cabin for your site, plus light-touch guidance on planning permission.

We can come to your site and give an appraisal which can cover market demand (rental), access, site location, service infrastructure, engineering and independent planning advice (from one of our expert consultants).

We will always make you aware if your project costs are likely to extend beyond the standard. 

The best thing to do is call us on 01364 705057 or contact us to chat through your ideas and to see what is possible.
