Custom Made Buildings
Made to Measure Timber Buildings
With over 35 years of hands-on manufacturing experience, City Centre Sheds Liverpool know this trade inside out.
Our experience in manufacturing Custom made sectional timber garden and commercial buildings are vast.
No matter what your ideas are large or small and within the bounds of Practicability, we will make what you need – Obviously as long as you have the money to pay for it as well !!!
Will always play a major part in having a custom made building produced, as it simply takes more time setting out / cutting and manufacturing a none standard building.
Certain things like door and window positions with standard sections are not what we would class as custom made and as such would not attract any surcharge.
The first thing we ask any client who is looking for a bespoke / custom made Timber Garden Building is – What is Your Budget?
Just an idea will do, for now, we don’t need to know the finer details at this stage. We ask this question for one very simple reason.
The Internet? This one thing alone has caused so much confusion in most trades nowadays, eBay and other discounts online selling sites advertising items at less than cost most of the time, which end up being a scam.
What happens is a certain element of clients see these silly prices then expect every product to be the same price – they are not. DO NOT judge a building on price alone, you need to compare components and how its made.
Can you go and see most of these so-called cheap products?
DO they only advertise a mobile phone number?
You have to learn the hard way sometimes.

WHAT IS YOUR BUDGET FOR A CUSTOM TIMBER BUILDING?
It is a simple fact that to have a Building made to your requirements will cost more than a stock building.
Even if the building is smaller by a few inches it will usually cost around 20% more to have those alterations made due to the amount of labour it takes resetting Jigs and cutting Timber to the new size. Time is money as well all know!
We have recently completed a number of very unusual Shaped Custom Timber Buildings when the front half was traditionally square but then the back half went into a sharp corner.
This took us over twice as long to make as the same sized completely square Building. The floor had to be made first then set on to a flat area in our workshop so we could individually make each wall one by one so they meet up correctly at the joints.
Once this was completed the roof then had to be measured and tailored to suit, very time-consuming. But a really nice building, in the end, check out the images on our Timber Buildings Gallery
The next step selecting your custom timber building
Simply send us as much detail as you can and include a photo of the area you intend to site the building so we can get a better idea of your needs ! as we may well have a better solution for you?
Remember all our Custom Timber Buildings are made in a selection of Timber Thickness and Qualities so and the idea of your overall budget will help us to speed up the process, as it is no good us prices for some all singing and dancing Bespoke Building at say £3000 when you only have £1000 to spend.
General price guide for custom timber buildings
As a very general guide you can expect to pay at least 20% and more for a custom timber Building that the nearest equivalent sized basic Building, but a lot simply depends on the complexity of the overall structure and the quality of the Doors and Windows you will require in that building as well as the timber thicknesses
The Process Of Building a Custom Timber Building
Residential Buildings Made To Measure
You Need to Talk with Local Planners
- Building Cost
- Cost of erecting
- Cost of a Base
- Electrics / Water supplies
- Other items
The next step is to actually begin the construction of the home. During this phase, you can be as involved or uninvolved as you wish.
If you want to be a hands-on client who monitors every step of the process, that is perfectly all right. If, on the other hand, you just want to back off and let the construction proceed apace, this is also acceptable.
