Some of the new planning rules to bear in mind for England are:
Cabin living can supply almost any garden cabin modified to 2.5m ridge height other than the two storey models. State your preference when placing an order.

Do I need planning permission for a log cabin or garden shed?
The following advice may make planning permission unnecessary but we strongly advise all our clients to seek written approval from their local development control officer before starting construction.
Cabin Living cabins are less than 4m high with a pitched roof.
Cabin Living would still suggest a 0.5 metre gap to allow maintenance of your boundary and cabin.
Contact your local development control officer. It is likely they will ask you to submit a plan indicating where and what you intend to build.
Your council should not apply any fees for this type of enquiry as this is not a formal planning application.
Information to include with your submission:
It is advisable to point out in your accompanying letter that your cabin is 5m from your home(if resident in Scotland), less than 15sqm if you propose to place it close to a boundary, less than 4m high with a pitched roof, and less than 50% (or 30% for Scotland) of the garden area.
This will help to demonstrate your familiarity with planning rules.
Councils do vary but response to this type of enquiry is normally fairly quick. One week or so.
This may seem like a time consuming process but obtaining approval secures peace of mind and ensures that if you sell your property in the future you can furnish your buyer's solicitor with written approval from development control.
