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.

The roof on garden sheds and summerhouses is a crucial part of your new garden shed so it is important that the right materials are used in its construction. The main purpose of the roof is to protect your valuables from rain and snow thus keeping them dry. Besides this is helps to ventilate the shed and aids the long life of your building.

This roof can slope in either direction, certainly the better garden shed manufacturers would be able to offer this. The pitch, or angle on the apex shed roof tends to be in the region of at least 15 degrees up to about 25 or 30 degrees. This allows water to flow easily off the roof and away - Continue reading --
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
