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 --
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 --
Sophie Dahl, the super rich model, has invoked fury among many people with her asking for £500,000 to save the garden shed which her father, Roald Dahl, used to write his many highly popular children books in. Sophie and her wealthy husband, Jamie Cullum, a jazz star, are aiming to raise this enormous sum so the 1950's built garden shed contents can be moved to the nearby Roald Dahl museum.
However actor and writer, Nicholas Pegg, wrote on Twitter 'Top model (& Jamie Cullum's wife) Sophie Dahl wants us to raise £0.5 million to save her best selling grandpas shed. Am I'm missing something?' I tend to agree with him. He later went on to post 'A preposterously wealthy family pleading for cash for its legacy? It sounds like a lost Dahl story'. Another Twitter user also angry tweeted 'Roald Dahl's shed needs to be renovated - Sophie could earn that on one modelling job. The Big Stingy Giant'. All classic childens stories but surprisingly children were totally banned from this creative area used by the great author - continue Reading

With our display site you can view our range of buildings although at the moment we do not sell any wooden sheds or heavy duty workshops called the Kidderminster but maybe in the future.
The workshop was delivered this morning and looks like it will last for many years - a very solid construction. The two guys putting it up did a great job - very efficient , I was amazed how quickly they put it together.
