Garden Buildings

Garden Buildings

Premium Quality Construction

We only use top quality joinery grade redwood tongue and groove shiplap cladding and our framing comes planed, with rounded edges. Roofs and floors are tongued and grooved solid wood; we do not use chipboard products in our construction. Our Garden Buildings are manufactured from FSC® certified timber, which is your guarantee of our environmental credentials.

All Buildings are drenched in premium quality golden brown wood preservative and standard roof finish is a high performance IKO Challenger polyester 180 green mineral felt, the same as we use on our Timber Garages and Equestrian buildings.

We offer an optional cladding upgrade to thicker 19 x 125 pressure treated rebated planed shiplap on any Garden Building. (standard on Heavy Duty Workshop)

Each building is checked for quality and comes 100% complete, down to the last nail and screw. Full instructions are supplied should you wish to put the building up yourself or if you live in Zone 1 on our delivery map you can use our professional erection service.

Enhanced security upgrades are available at extra cost on all garden buildings excluding the Playhouse. These include bolted door hinges, Secure by Design shed shackle and Sold Secure padlock.  Please see brochure or price list for more information.

We display a full range of buildings in our High Street, Strood showground.

Frequently Asked Questions

This will usually depend on the size, height and location of the proposed new building.

If you are positioning the building close to a boundary or in front of the building line of your home when viewed from the road, then planning consent is usually required.

If the building is to be behind the house, more than 2.0m from a boundary and provided the ridge height is less than 4.0m, then you may not need permission, assuming it is for non business use. Most garden sheds and chalets therefore do not need local authority permission.

However, if you live in a listed property or within a conservation area then planning permission is nearly always required.

The Government Planning Portal contains a wealth of additional information and includes an interactive guide covering most circumstances.
