Our timber garden workshops offer plenty of height at the eaves (6ft 4in) and these timber workshop sheds are all fully planning compliant ready to use Without Applying For Planning Consent which means they are under 2.5m (8ft) high. This is a very important factor as there are lots of manufactures who have over produced buildings that do not meet these requirements and as such are discounting them and not telling you that they may require planning permission.
Apex or Pent ( single sloping ) Roofs are supplied at the same cost in our Timber Workshops Range so working out a price will be much more simple , just select from our list of most popular sizes below and you can place the door and windows where you want ( within reason ) at no extra cost.
What ever size timber garden workshops you eventually decide on, it will require a suitable solid and level base.
You have a number of options available to you. A timber frame base made from pressure treated timbers is a very popular option but requires a fair amount of preparation. Second and most popular is a concert paving flagged based , laying a thin layer of sand on a prepared level area and then placing the paving flags on top generally gives a good well spread base allowing the full weight of the garden workshops to be spread more evenly over the base.
All our Quality Garden Workshops are available in both popular Apex and Pent - Single sloping roof versions for the same price.
These garden workshops have the very same heavy duty 3 x 2 framework and cladding as the popular apex timber workshops. This Pent roof timber workshop range are made to order so you can have your door and windows sited any where on the building to suit your individual needs .
As standard every workshop will be provided with a Heavy Duty Mineral type roof covering.
This covering is normally nailed or stapled to the timber surface within our normal fitting service . Should you require it fitted in a different way or stuck down with adhesives you will need to discus this with us prior to delivery to pre arrange a mutually agreeable fee to cover any extra work involved.
The real way to cover a workshop roof is with either a rubber sheet , corrugated or tiled effect or a commercial polyester torch on roofing felt .
This polyester felt is nearly double that of the Heavy Duty 40Kg. It also has polyester stands woven into its construction and is fitted by melting a special layer of tar with a high pressure blow lamp as you can see in the small video next to this section.
We uses 22mm thick T+G boards nailed on to 75 x 50mm timbers .
Please Note the floor bears underneath our workshops and any of our timber buildings will always run the length unless you confirm via a dated email you wish them to run the short direction. We will not accept the excuse i told some one over the phone , we do not accept alterations ot design or spec over the phone due to the likelihood of disputes and miisunderstandings . Please provide all information in writing so there can be no confusion.

Some questions we are regularly asked about our workshops
Yes all are buildings are made in sections to make it easy for our fitters to carry in to your property before assembling.
The size of these sections will vary depending on the size of the workshop and the timber thickness being used. The simple fact is these sections are very heavy and bulky to handle so getting the optimum size is important.
If you have a tight space or access issues we need to know about this in advance so the sections can be made to a size that will not only fit through that space but also be structurally sound enough to keep the building strong
A few factors really , it is not just the timber or the framing thickness but also how the building is constructed over all
A true workshop will have a lot more use than would a normal garden shed. The hinges will need to be more of a commercial grade if the door is to be opened and closed many more times compared with your average garden shed
The same goes for the overall amount of framework we use in our workshops. It is very easy to cut corners and leave very large gaps between the main uprights to save money , but we do NOT do that . We spread out the uprights to give a good solid feel to the building
The simple answer to that is yes of course we can
You are only limited by two things? Your imagination and your budget !
Simply send by post or email a sketch or drawing of your ideas along with your budget and we will tell you within days if it is possible to provide that building within that budget . Or at the very least offer you some sort of alternative or solution near to your budget
Use this link to our heavy duty garden sheds web page , which explains the difference between the two buildings. But simply in this case it is the cladding thickness. Our heavy duty sheds have the same extra strong 3x2 framework but clad with the thinner 12mm T+G boards to help reduce the cost overall
Every ones idea of what would be classed as a large workshop differs depending on your situation really . If you only have a small or average garden or yard then having, say 14ft x 8ft workshop could be classed as a large workshop
But if you have larger premises or say you where a farmer then a 60ft x 12ft could be classed as a large workshop. No matter what size we can provide it for you and at a price that will make you happy simply send your ideas .
Not if you buy one from our selves, why is that? Because we make the vast majority of our buildings so they are planning compliant with max overall height of 2.5m which is what you are permitted to have if you intend to site the workshop within 2 meters of any boundary on your property. The main reason for this is the shadow any such building may or may not cast over next door!
However if you intend to use your new wooden workshop for any sort of commercial reasons , it is likely you will need to obtain planning permision. We do not make the rules only advise you of them it it advised to contact your local planning office if you have any concerns.
Any advise on this matter please contact us and we can advise on any issues you may be unsure about.
Not as standard for the prices quoted , but we do offer 2 services.
1- Straight forward insulating which includes under floor, the 4 walls and the roof . We use a foil based bubble flexible insulation that is very light weight and offers a higher insulation value to that of 40mm foam based insulation. The price guide for this is £5 per square , see notes below for working out sq footage. This will leave a foil based look on all walls and roof but still enable the main 3x2 structure exposed so you can eventually line the walls your self or simply leave them as is.
2- insulating as above but then lining the inside walls and roof with smooth plywood , we have a very approx price for this which is £12 per sq foot. This has been calculated so if you simply times the length and width of the building you are interested in say a 10 x 10 which will work at at 100 sq ft that building will cost you a total of £1200 to have it lined and insulated on site
This is just one of many options available and we will be more than pleased to discus your individual needs at more length.
Having you new Garden Workshop lined and insulated will make it into a much more practical building that can be used all year round , especially with our cold long winters the thought of going to work in a cold damp workshop can be a little off putting.
Once again not in our prices quoted on this site . Providing power to your new timber workshop will need some serious consideration as there are a few practical and safety factors you will need to look into.
How much power will you need ? If it just a few sockets and a light then usually there is not much of an issue , any thing more will depend on the spare power you have at your fuse box. Remember when your house was built , usually no consideration would have been made to supply power outside and why should there have been !
Do you have a spare fuse at your house main fuse board ?
How are you going to get that power to the workshop ? It will usually need an armored ( strengthened ) cable buried under ground . If you only have soft soil or turf then it wili be straight forward . But what if you have a paved area will you need to lift those paving flags to get cable through ? None of this we are able to help you with at this stage as we simply can not see what is needed from our office .
We would recommend you send some pictures to give us a better idea of the overall situation and offer our advise.
No is the simple answer , as most of the sections are very large , bulky and simply to tall to fit thought a standard height house door way.
However in some cases it is possible to make the workshop in smaller sections enabling them to be carried thought a restricted door way . This will usually add around 5% to 10 % of the buildings over all cost . It is not just the extra time and materials needed in the factory but the extra time we need to spend on site re assembling and strengthening the sections again .
So we would strongly advise you to send us some images or short video of the access issues you have so we can advise of the best way forward . In some form or other we are usually capable of over coming most issues and will simply come down to you having to spend more money to achieve this !
The simple answer is No - But we do now and a again change and renew some of our show buildings. These ex show workshops are usually either 10 x 8 or 12 x 8 as we try and keep the same size and style on each show site, it would be very rear to have anything larger.
How ever we do get offered used buildings on the odd occasion. We get enquiries from people who have moved into a property and have no use for a large workshop the previous owners once used . We always ask them to email us a picture and details where the building is sited along with their contact details
We will be more than happy to pass on these details to you and can even quote for the dismantling and re fitting of that building.
