The garden shed or summer house door needs to be designed to work for a very long time so it is important it is made correctly. You will find decent shed and summer house manufacturers take their responsibilities seriously and will ensure they will stand the test of time.
As well as the importance of having ledges AND braces on the garden shed door it is important to have THREE hinges as this will help to transmit the weight of the shed door across and onto the door frame. If there is only two then the door may bulge slightly in the middle. With a joinery made door then only two hinges are required as the weight of the shed door is supported by the jointed frame.
There are various ways for the garden shed door to be kept closed. The very minimum you want is to have a pad bolt with a turn buckle top and bottom on your door. The pad bolt is a sliding bolt and when closed you can put your padlock onto it to protect your valuables. The turn buckle is simply a flat piece of metal with a hole in the middle. This is screwed onto the garden shed frame and when turned will hold the shed door tightly into position. This will help to stop any movement on the door when there are large changes in weather conditions through the year. - Continue reading --
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 --
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
