The local building regulations can vary from region to region. Sometimes this also depends on the surface that is built on. In most counties it is sufficient to make a simple building notification. Please inform yourself before purchasing a shed with your local community/municipal authority, if an building approval is necessary.
Our standard approval plans can be downloaded on our web site. For our design outbuilding CasaNova we provide a building plan with detailed measurements and structural calculations on the basis of EU-wide approved EN norms. You can also find these structural calculations on our web site under “Service” /Downloads.
Before you purchase a shed, please think about the suitable foundation as well. Attention! Our sheds can be only set up on an even surface! Only our Biohort ground screw foundation allows to balance slopes of up to 10%.
The patented ground screw foundation is ideal to balance slopes and unevennesses of the floor of up to 10%. It consists of high-end aluminium planks, the aluminium frame and stable ground screws and can be loaded with up to 200kg per m². You can order this solution directly when ordering.

This is the easiest foundation option. With the aluminium floor frame which we offer as accessory, the shed can be set up easily on gravel and can be secured to the ground with the ground anchors that are included. For this purpose, the turf is removed for about 10 cm. Then you fill the excavation with gravel and make sure the gravel level is even.

Foundation slabs (paving or concrete slabs) laid in a bed of gravel are a good and inexpensive solution. For the foundation, the turf is removed for about 10 cm and the excavation is filled up with gravel. Please make sure the gravel level is even. We recommend laying a vapor barrier in the gravel bed. Afterwards you lay the foundation plates, which are available in various colours and surfaces in any DIY store. We recommend using the aluminium floor frame with this foundation option.

A reinforced concrete plate in a gravel bed is a qualitative high-end foundation option. The soil is scooped frost-free, the the excavated soil is filled up and compacted. As a next step, a 3-5 cm thick levelling ground with gravel is made and the vapour barrier is laid in the levelling ground. Then the concrete foundation is erected with 1-2 layers of steel mesh.

The aluminium floor frame allows for the erection of a point foundation - even on uneven and resilient ground. The point foundation has to be established on the given place with at least 30x30 cm side length - please note our point foundation plans . The earth excavation for the point foundation needs to have sufficient depth. The excavation needs to be filled with gravel and compressed - this level is the basis for the following conrete level.

We generally advise to assembly every Biohort shed with floor frame. This provides enough stability and corrects any unevenesses in the foundation. If you want to go without a floor frame, it is very important that you establish a clean and level foundation.
Exception! If you have decided for a Biohort ground screw foundation (available as accessory in the Biohort online shop) you don’t need a floor frame and floor panels. The ground screw foundation is a complete solution which includes frame and floor panels.
If you do not want to stand directly on the ground inside your shed, we recommend our aluminium floor panels. In order for the aluminium checker plate floor to be optimally laid, you need the aluminium floor frame. Please note: The floor plates need to be relined. This can be done with a filling or with XPS hard foam plates of 2-3 cm thickness (not part of the delivery scope).
Attention: The Biohort ground screw foundation already contains floor panels.
Accessories for the interior can be supplemented at any time afterwards.

When configurating your shed you can already decide between standard or double-door. Further, you have the chance to order an additional door as accessory or to change the door stop from right to left.
As a standard, the shed Europa is equipped with a double-door. On our wegsite you can order an extra wide door or exchange the standard door for an extra wide door (against payment of an extra charge) in the “accessories” section.
As a standard, the gutter is equipped with a connection nozzle for a garden hose. The rain water downpipe set offers an elegant solution to drain the rainwater away from the roof. As a result, flushing of pavement slabs, as well as an above-average water retention in case of rain around the shed can be reduced.
A set always consists of 2 rain water downpipe sets and the fixation material.
Whether as a shelter for firewood, for mopeds and bicycles or as a roof for a cozy garden lounge - side canopies offer additional storage space and are versatile! At Biohort, we offer side canopies for our models Europa and HighLine. You can install up to 2 side canopies per shed.
