Year-Round Use


Our Classic Office is fully lined and insulated (walls, ceiling and floor), and the windows are double glazed. This allows you to use your new building all through the year, it also increases comfort and decreases noise levels, as well as finishing the building in a beautiful manner.

Insulation

For the roof we have a 4 tier lining and insulation process; we insulate between the ply layer and the internal matchboard tongue and groove lining, and finish the building with our heavy duty felt on the roof. For the walls, we insulate your building by trapping a breathable paper membrane between the studwork, which acts as a moisture trap before filling in with insulation.

Lining 

Solid pine horizontal natural matchboarding will give your building a warm, cosy feel.

Natural Matchboard Lining

We line your building with our highest grade tongue and groove matchboarding (15mm) offering a natural, warm feel.

Year-Round Use

The insulation in the walls, floor and ceiling, along with the matchboard lining and double glazing will allow you to use your building in comfort all through the year.

Electric Pack


For lighting and using any equipment in your building, you may wish to consider our electric pack to enable you to use your Office all year-round.

Professionally fitted by qualified electricians who take all the wiring to a consumer unit ready for you to connect to your electricity supply. Internal wiring will be fitted behind the internal lining. We can also supply your building with a heater.

Base


All our buildings require a level, solid concrete base of the correct size.

The single most important part of installing a garden building is the base. Bases must be:

  • LEVEL
  • Of the correct size
  • Square i.e. have right angled corners

A concrete base supports your building in the best possible way, adding longevity, as well as creating a substantial distance between your building and surface water.

Concrete base in a customer's gardenWe can supply a 100mm deep reinforced concrete base ready for your building, laid by our professionals, in advance of your building being installed by us. The site must be clear and reasonably level for us to do this.

The base should always be a minimum of 50mm out of the ground to prevent surface water or puddles affecting your building i.e. rotting it.

The base you have must be made to the plans we give you when you order your building, whether we install the base, or you get a trusted builder to do it for you. 

Bases for larger buildings, and in particular garages, need to be built to exact dimensions - we create special base drawings for our garages, since they sit directly on the concrete base and must be anchored into place.

Please note: If you intend to fully or partially surround the building base with hard paving we strongly suggest the installation of a French drain between the paving and base to prevent rain bouncing off the hard surface and driving up under the building, which in turn could cause damp and rot. A French drain is a simple small trench, dug around your building and filled with aggregate that will allow surface water to drain away.

Always get your garden building base laid by a professional, whether that is us, or a local builder you trust.

We constantly strive to ensure all our materials and techniques are the best that we can source and provide. We lead the market in producing exceptional quality timber buildings. Couple this with our personal and bespoke service and you will be totally delighted with your building.
