So you’re interested in buying a lodge for a new development?
Frequently asked questions
Yes. Pinelog lodges are heavy and they should always be sited on appropriately prepared foundations. We generally recommend either a concrete raft or strip footings. We will supply drawings once an order has been placed so that you can engage a local contractor.
Yes, but it is likely the lodge home would be built to building regulation standards, rather than to BS EN 3632: 2015. This would incur additional costs, which we can discuss with you.
We work with a number of independent holiday parks throughout the UK and some of these offer our lodges for sale. Contact us for further details.
If you are interested in a lodge for residential use, we recommend you contact a suitable residential park directly and discuss your requirements with them. A useful website to search for a park is justlodges.com
Pinelog lodges are classed as a mobile home and can therefore be sited wherever permission exists for a static caravan.
It may be possible to site a lodge within the curtilage of your own home as ancillary accommodation under the terms of “Permitted development”. However, we would strongly advise you to discuss and check this point with your local authority or local planning consultant.
Should you wish to site a lodge on a separate piece of land then planning permission for a mobile home will almost certainly be required.
You are responsible for making sure that all utilities/services (water, electricity, waste drainage, gas etc) are brought to site. You will also need to arrange for a plumber and electrician to make the necessary connections and to carry out final commissioning once the lodge has been delivered.
