Full installation service included
Our full range of timber and concrete buildings will be installed free of charge at the time of delivery providing there is a suitable base. And if there isn't, don't worry, we can build that for you too for a small extra charge.
Uniquely we can even install our range of metal buildings. We make a small extra charge for this service but, unless you're a DIY fanatic, it is something of a bargain!
Beware of 'next day delivery'!
Some companies stockpile buildings outside which can often result in weather and storage damage. Each and every one of our timber buildings is individually constructed by craftsmen in our UK factories and delivered direct to your garden using our own vehicles.
Doing things the right way takes slightly longer, of course, but isn't it worth the wait to get a building which will last?
Design your dream building!
No two gardens are the same so why restrict the building that sits within? Every timber building leaving our UK factories has been individually designed for you. This may seem like a minor difference when comparing us to our production line rivals but it is actually quite a significant one.
We're not just talking about a wider door or moving a window: every aspect is fully customisable to your precise requirements. Take a look at our gallery for some examples!
We offer a full base construction service (cost-effective timber subframe, concrete or slab options) to most areas. This is an oft overlooked service which we are proud to offer alongside another important service: site clearance and the removal of existing timber and concrete buildings (even those with Asbestos roofs)
We can also undertake many other landscaping projects - fencing, decking, etc. - within 60 miles of our office.

Helpful Guidance When Buying Summer Houses or Sun Room
How To Guide:- Fixing and Types of Shed Summerhouses Windows
The windows on sheds and summer houses rely on the windows to let light in so are crucial to your enjoyment of your new garden building. The way these windows are fixed to the building is also crucial so you need to be aware of the method used. The reason for this is so that you don't end up with leaking windows which can be a nuisance.
There are various ways as to how the windows are secured into place. You will often find that they are 'dry fixed' using timber beading. This is a very good way of keeping your shed or summerhouse dry provided the beading is pushed up tight against the glass. Some building only use small nails or brads to secure the glass in place and this can sometimes leak. Another option is with a mastic or sealant around the outside edge of the glass and the shed wall or even with sealant behind the glass.
When I had my garden shed company, which I started in 1979, we use to use the dry fixing method but this was supplemented with a window ledge with a recess cut for the glass to sit into. The beadings were fixed from inside the shed or summerhouse and pressed tight against the glass. This was also more secure as the beading could not be removed from outside - Continue reading --
Helpful Guidance When Buying a Garden Sheds or Heavy Duty Workshop
How To Keep Our Garden Sheds Safe
Our garden sheds in Britain are well used garden buildings and into which we store a great deal of valuable items however we don't always realise how valuable these items are and how much it would cost to replace. If you just take the value of the larger items such as the lawn mower, the hedge cutters, garden tables and chairs these on their own come to a great deal. Add in the number of bikes for the kids, maybe the golf clubs and other sports equipment and maybe you will give security more thought to ensure that your shed is as secure as possible.
Beside the monetary value there is the hassle of dealing with the insurance company, hoping that they will pay you replacement value, and that is if they even cover your garden items in the shed, which is unusual. You will also always have the feeling your privacy has been violated, not the same as some one getting into your house but never the less not very nice.Continue reading --

Garden Sheds wins Lottery Money
The legendary huts and garden sheds at Bletchley Park, where the dedicated men and women during the second world war worked helping to save the lives of thousands and also shortening the war, are themselves being helped by a massive grant of £4.6 million from the Lottery fund. This is a welcome change from the usual rubbish causes which they come up with.
The grounds of Bletchley Park was home to many of the garden sheds and huts which housed many workers however very few knew what their work was for. The huts, which were built quickly, could be cold and draughty but that did not matter - what did matter was the end results. Gathered together were the country's most brainy mathematicians including many masters of chess as the logic required in chess was a required thought process. To start with all they had to work with was basic calculators (nothing like what we have today) slide rules, pens and paper - continue reading
