Comprehensive Range of Quality Sheds & Outdoor Storage Buildings in Metal, Vinyl & Timber


The appeal of a personalised space which provides not only a practical solution to storing a selection of items, but offers an escape from the daily grind cannot be underestimated. The humble garden shed, has traditionally been the territory of the male section of the home. Used for keeping tools and building materials clean and dry, and for doing DIY jobs or repairs in. But the shed is increasingly being seen as a multi-use area for all members of the family.

During the economic downturn in recent years, the versatility of the shed has come to the fore, as people have begun to utilise this space in a variety of ways. Sheds are frequently used as offices, and can be customised in a way that facilitates a productive environment. Heating and electricity can be installed to give your shed every available comfort and office requirement. People all over the UK are running businesses, painting pictures, entertaining friends, making crafts and even writing books in their sheds. Authors who have produced great works in their sheds include, Roald Dahl, Dylan Thomas, Earnest Hemingway and Louise de Bernieres.


TV Presenter, Ben Fogle has some thoughts on what he calls his own ‘little urban utopian retreat’. A family man approaching 40, Ben sees his garden shed as a ‘man cave’ or ‘Den’, allowing him to relax and mull ideas over in an atmosphere of peace and quiet. His shed has been fashioned from items and curiosities collected during his travels and expeditions. His ‘explorer’s shack’, consists of recycled and up-cycled things like wooden cladding from pallets, wooden doors from an old museum, lights salvaged from a ship and windows from an old factory. It is also home to a tiny wood burning stove, children’s turret, tiny trap door, ladder and fireman’s pole.
