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!
Base construction service
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.

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 --
How To:- Choose Materials for Sheds & Summer Houses Floors
Different garden shed manufacturers use different types of materials for their shed or summerhouses floors. Whilst some are suitable for outdoor use there are many which should not be used as they are not designed to stand up to the wet British climate and are likely to fail quite soon after delivery.
Chipboard floors:- These are made from wood chips, as its name suggest. These are stuck together and compressed to make a solid material. Absolutely ideal for kitchen cabinets or anything used indoors but outdoors are susceptible to damp. Just a small amount of damp can make the boards fail. As soon as water gets into the shed floor it will be absorbed into the chips making the board swell and then disintegrate. There is nothing you can do to repair this and your garden shed floor would need replacing, or at the very least, a floor section - Continue reading --
Beware Killers Hiding in Your Garden Shed
Our garden sheds are places where many activities take place such as using it as a garden workshop, for potting plants, for a recreation room away from the house, maybe as an garden office or for storing items away. What you need to consider are the potential dangers in our sheds as, sometimes, because we are relaxed we can let our guard down and take unnecessary chances. When we are in a working environment we have other work colleagues who look out for us as well as the dreaded 'health and safety' rules which stops us doing many things but actually does makes sense a lot most of the time.
Some areas to be aware about in your garden shed is the handling of natural products such as compost because ailments such as legionnaires disease are possible. Fertilisers and pesticides are other products in your shed with which you need to take very careful steps with. The best advice in these instances is to always use gardening gloves to protect your hands from any contamination and for fiddly work there is the option to use latex gloves which give full feeling in your hands but still offer protection - continue
