What is considered an outbuilding?

Understanding Outbuildings

Outbuildings are auxiliary structures on your property like sheds, garages, workshops, and summerhouses. They serve various purposes, from storage and vehicle protection to spaces for hobbies and relaxation.

Key Functions:

  • Sheds: Store garden tools and outdoor equipment.
  • Garages: Protect vehicles from weather and theft.
  • Workshops: Space for DIY projects and hobbies.
  • Summerhouses/Greenhouses: Relaxation or plant cultivation areas.

Insurance Considerations

The function and contents of these structures dictate their insurance needs. Tailored coverage is crucial to protect against damages or losses, ensuring both the outbuilding and its contents are safeguarded.


Selecting and insuring outbuildings wisely enhances your property’s value and utility, protecting your investment in the long run.
