When contacting us, we will require that you have a base before we are able to construct your product. It is essential that all garden buildings are assembled on a firm and level base, constructed from an appropriate, durable material.

Without the correct base, buildings can be very difficult to assemble. This may lead to the future deterioration of the product – such as doors dropping out of alignment, or the source of water leakage.

Bases can be made of many materials including:

  • Concrete or Paving Slabs
  • Wooden Shed Bases
  • Plastic Shed Bases
Concrete Base


A clear route is required from the lorry to the prepared base, with no access restrictions. The sections are often large flat panels which may be as long as the building. Possible restrictions include:

  • Archways
  • Narrow passages
  • Sharp corners
  • Flights of stairs

It is not normally possible to lift large panels over fences and walls.

Please advise us if there are any access restrictions, steep inclines or long distances at the site.



Having invested in a quality garden shed, it is very important to look after it well to ensure a long life. If treated and maintained correctly you should be able to enjoy your shed for many years to come.

Treat your shed with a preservation treatment at regular intervals to get the longest life out of your shed.

Tips for treating your shed:

  • Check the instructions of the preservative treatment carefully and make sure you buy one that is suitable for your shed. When choosing your treatment, check it is for use on planed wood and not designed for use on sawn timber.
  • If the wood has been stained, painted or varnished, remove this before treating the wood.
  • Wait for a spell of good weather to treat your shed.

What type of base is required?

It is essential that all our timber buildings are assembled on a firm and level base, that is constructed with appropriate, durable materials. Without the correct base the building can be very difficult to assemble. This might also lead to issues with the building – such as doors dropping out of alignment, water leakage which would result in shortened life expectancy of the product. Please call us if you would like further information and examples of our preferred bases.

What materials are used?

All of our products are built using high quality 20mm thick shiplap cladding. 2” x 2” framing is used through the building (3x2s in workshop spec). Tongue and groove flooring on a 2” x 2” treated framed base as a floor. Heavy duty black Ultrapol felt is used as standard on all products.

What if I have poor access?

A clear access route is required from our lorry to the base, with no access restrictions. Possible restrictions can include archways, narrow passages, longer than 50ft to base, sharp corners and flights of stairs. Please advise us if there are any restrictions so we can discuss options.

How long will installation take?

The length of time the delivery team will be on site can vary depending on the size of the shed and access, but should only take a few hours.

How often do I need to treat my shed?

We recommend treating it 6 months after delivery, and then yearly thereafter, with an oil-based treatment that can be purchased from our workshop.

Can I provide my own UPVC doors and windows?

We will happily build the shed with your UPVC doors and windows; we just ask that you arrange to deliver them to us before the shed is built.

How do I pay for my order?

We request that all payments are made by cash or bank transfer. The details can be given upon request.
