In the UK, permission is required when building a wendy house anywhere nearer the public pavement or road than your original home. With that considered, it is typically best to opt for building a wendy house in the back garden, and ensuring that it does not cause any obstruction for neighbours.
Depending on your plans for building a wendy house, it may be that you require planning permission to put your plans into action.
With all the legalities out of the way, it is important to remember that building a wendy house is an extremely physically demanding task. Alongside the typical DIY slips, trips and falls, you can incur myriad other injuries of varying severity.
The risks of building a wendy house
Common injuries when building a wendy house include those sustained through tool-related accidents. Lacerations, and even amputations, from working with saws is seen frequently. Bruising, broken bones from hammers, and nails impaled into the fingers and hand, are other typical injuries.
When building a wendy house at height, slips and falls can also present a severe risk. Depending on the grounding and the nature of the fall from height, head injuries, fractures and even fatalities can occur.
Claiming compensation for building accidents
