FAQ - Wooden Garden Workshops
As standard we use a heavy duty 26Kg Green Mineral Roofing Felt .
But we offer an upgrade option to Commercial Grade Torch On Felt – This is applied by heating the under layer with blow torch and allows an amount of the Tar to melt and bound directly to your new timber workshops roof.
- Felt Shingles
- Corrugated Sheets
- Full Tile Effect
Or you can even opt to provide your own roof covering – say tiles to match your homes roof ?
In most cases unless you live in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty or National Park ( suggests you do local checks first ) .
You will not normally need to apply for planning as we make all our buildings under 2.5m total hight as standared .
Every Local Authority has slightly different interpritations of the Gov guidelines so it is always worth checking before you place an order .
Yes all our Workshops are made in sections that will be bolted / screwed together once on site .
Most workshops will NOT be able to be carried through a House due to the hight of the sections . We can how ever make and alter the componants if needed .
If you have this issue it needs to be discused before ordering !

All our Workshops are Pressure Treated before they are made in our factory .
This gives you a minimum 25 year life span and much longer if you raise the building slightly out of any holding water .
See here for advise
How ever you must still water proof any sort of pressure treated building with a quality shirt based treatment .
Ask our friendly staff of advice
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.
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 renew some of our show buildings. These ex show workshops are usually either 10 x 8 or 12 x 8 to 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.
