"When the choice of materials and construction detail come have a shed classic"


The Woodford model offers versatility in design with a choice of windows, doors and roof styles. The exterior cladding is a deep 6" (150mm) 'Unsorted grade' shiplap which is virtually knot free after we have further 'graded' in house.

Attention to detail as always with our buildings continues with a door frame with top drip bar and bottom sill, a solid door of framed, ledged & braced construction and a mortice lock plus lever handle. Again the windows have a substantial frame, sill and include one vent per twin unit. A breather membrane is fitted between the framework and cladding acting as a vapour barrier making for a moisture resistant interior. 

Available in either apex or pent style roof with a choice of door positions. Both styles have a minimum internal height of 6'6" (1981mm) so head room won't be a concern. The 'Woodford' shed is perfect for storing your garden tools, lawn mower etc but also if you want a building for your hobby or even trade it's ideal too.

Standard exterior finish consists of 2 coats of a Thorndown paint system in a choice of colours or can be mixed to RAL codes.

Teknos Paint System

Water based microporous paint specifically designed for exterior joinery. Incorporates resin systems which when dry are both flexible and breathable, allowing timber to move naturally through the seasons while minimising cracking and peeling associated with solvent based coatings.

Firstly we apply by spray two coats of 'Antistain Aqua' primer which prevents knot resins seeping to the surface plus enhancing adhesion of the top coats.

Secondly we again apply by spray two coats of 'Aquatop 2600' microporous topcoat which gives extended protection against weathering, UV degradation, mould and fungal attack. Re-paint cycle up to 7 years.

Osmo Natural Oil

Available in an opaque or translucent finish Osmo offers a genuine top quality product which doesn't flake, peel or blister. Easy future maintenance, just ensure the surface is clean and dry and apply another thin coat. Choice of colours plus can be mixed to RAL codes.


Residential grade tiles by 'Isola' with a life span of 25 years plus. A combination of glass felt and thick, flexible bitumen produces a product that is both strong and flexible. Wind rated to 120 mph. Colours available grey and red.

Please note these are not to be confused with the lesser grade felt-tiles used on many garden buildings manufactured throughout the UK.  

Cedar Shingles

Premium grade 1 'Blue Label' Western Red Cedar shingles. These are knot free shingles which we secure using stainless fixings to certified battens. They give a beautiful look to a roof from when first installed to when weathered to a natural silver grey colour. The life span is up to 30 years plus.


Residential 100mm/4" half-round gutter with down pipe. Important option in aiding a low maintance timber building by reducing water contact from roof run-off. Water butts can also be installed if required.

Double Doors

These can be a standard pair width of 152cm (60") or a door and a half pair width at 114cm (45"). Framed, ledged & braced door construction, hinges can be either galvanized T-hinges or Stainless bearing hinges.


During construction we can install a ply-liner between the panel frame and the breather membrane. This gives a durable and attractive interior finish. It can be left natural or have a clear coat or painted finish.

Insulate & Ply-line

Once your building has been erected we can install 50mm (2") Celotex to the walls and roof which we then cover with a hardwood faced plywood. If electrics are being installed we undertake after the 1st fix. With regards to the floor we install at the factory, priced separately.


"What options are there regarding the base on which to erect my building?"

Option 1 - Concrete base - The most popular base for your building is a concrete base. A professionally fitted concrete base offers a sound solution. Recommended contractor details available for no obligation quote.

Option 2 - Concrete Base with dwarf wall - Omitting the floor and erecting on a 50 x 100mm wall plate plus DPC is another option when you don't require a timber floor. 

Option 3 - Timber chassis with 'timber feet' - If you have an area such as grass, gravel or 'un-level' concrete, slabs or a combination of either we can supply a 'Timber Chassis' to erect your garden building on. It's a heavy duty frame which supports the whole floor. The timber chassis is levelled using timber 'feet' throughout. Ok for non permanent installations due to timber feet life span.

Option 4 - Timber chassis with galvaized 'ground screws' - This option of timber chassis is an alternative to concrete, again feet are located throughtout to support the chassis. It offer a solution for longevity but issues may arise due to the area under the chassis attracting rodents.
