The Woodford Shed...

Choosing a 'genuine' quality shed can seem a bit of a minefield and certainly frustrating understanding which is best value for you.

Not wanting your new garden shed in a year or two to start looking sorry for itself with issues such as a sagging roof, a door which either drops or jambs, dampness due to not being watertight and a overall exterior starting to look quite ugly...generally an uninspiring shed sitting 'large' in your garden and certainly not a pleasure to use.

At Frenchmoor we can take the stress away because we have a solution in the versatile 'Woodford' shed. A timber garden shed or shall we say building for those of you that want a more substantial construction, better design detail...a building to last. Choosing the 'Woodford' shed you'll know with confidence each time you step inside you've purchased a building that will last and be future proof for a change in can also make for a perfect workshop.

"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) shiplap for that smooth finish.

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 and braced construction and a mortice lock plus lever handle. Again the windows have a substantial frame with top drip bar and large sill. A breather membrane is fitted between the framework and cladding acting as a vapour barrier making for a moisture restistant 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 treatment is 2 coats of 'Osmo' Natural Oil Woodstain as recommended by architects for it's qualities of finish and longevity.

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 brush 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 brush 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.



Residential grade tiles by 'Isola' with a life span of 20 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 nails 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.  

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

Option 1 - Timber Chassis - 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 can be levelled using timber 'feet' as required.

Option 2 - Concrete Base - The ultimate base prep' for your building is a concrete base. A professionally fitted 'reinforced' concrete base will always be the best solution...ask for a quote.
