    "I’m sure you have 2 have some sort of planning permission if you go over 3 or 4 course of bricks not a 100% on it so would recommend seeking proper advice before just going ahead and building it.

    "Brick sheds usually do not need planning permission,only if you exceed a certain height then you will need a planning application"

    "Brick sheds have no building regulations however may require planning permission if close to your neighbours boundaries depending on the size, Best way to find out for sure is to ring your local council planning team or use their online portal as each council have different planning requirements , With regards to doing it DIY what takes you 3 days would probably take a bricklayer 1 day so I would question how much you could earn in your job in 3 days and is it worth the stress? Bricklaying looks easy but it's not takes years to become any good."
