building an abri de jardin

Recommended Posts

This house is in a protected area and the word has gone out that there will be no more wooden abris de jardin, but that something in parpaings with a tiled roof, with a crepi painted to match the house is ok. So, can anyone please give me an approximate cost for building a small shed of say 4 metres by 2 metres with a tiled roof (modern tiles). Or a cost per sq metre for such simple structures, svp?

Thank you.

Very rough, tiles could be a little less or hugely more.

Obviously this depends on if you are going to do all or part of it yourself or pay someone else for the complete structure.

I also live in a protected area and had to comply with the regulations similar to those you describe.

I paid an artisan to do the foundations and walls and completed the rest of the work myself. It cost me around €5000 for a structure 4m x 3m.
