Garden Workshop


Garden Workshop Customer Stories

A DIY enthusiast wanted a workshop space where they could retreat to and tinker with tools to their heart’s content, so they opted to have one of our Superior Sheds installed in their splendid garden.

Superior Shed turned Garden Workshop

Our Superior Sheds can be made in a variety of different sizes to be as big or as small as required and they can also be made in either an apex or pent roof design. Our customer opted for their garden workshop to have an apex roof design and measure 3.0 x 3.0m in size. The apex roof gives this garden workshop an eave height of 2.0m, allowing plenty of headroom, which is an important factor for an efficient workshop. There is an opening window included in the design to allow fresh air to circulate, which is also necessary when working with tools that may produce dust or sawdust.

Inside our customer's Superior Shed turned Garden Workshop

Internally, the customer opted to add one of our sturdy workbenches, running along the gable end of the interior, measuring 3.0m. Our workbenches are made from oak-faced plywood and are 600mm deep for a solid, sturdy finish. Our customer has also retrospectively fitted a power socket too, which they have used to plug in speakers so they can listen to music while working inside. If you wanted a shed that was already supplied with electrics, we can install our electric pack on our Superior Sheds that consist of 4 double 13 amp switched sockets, a gang light switch, a waterproof double external 13 amp socket, an 8-way consumer unit and a fluorescent single light fitting. We can also fully line and insulate our Superior Sheds and install a heater, so they are comfortable for use throughout the year.

Aesthetically, the exterior of the shed is clad with rustic weatherboard style cladding, which gives it a classical and traditional look. It is painted in a two-tone fashion, with a contrasting colour on the doors and windows. The two opaque, natural shades selected by the customer from our vast range of options are Sandstone for the walls, and Ivory to highlight the door and windows that are both from our Exterior Paint System. The roof is covered with our grey slate-effect tiles and Georgian windows have also been selected for an attractive, timeless look. There are also other roof coverings and window types for you to choose from as our buildings can be as customisable as you wish.

Other features added by our customer include white guttering along the fascia boards to keep off the wetter weather, and our security pack feature, which offers security screws on the door hinges that are impossible to unscrew and a heavy-duty sliding bolt with a fully encased 7 lever lock. Our security pack offers that additional peace of mind and significantly reduces the risk of being burgled. 

We can cater for a wide range of personalisation options and offer additional extras that allow you to create your dream building, whether you want something simple or a shed to use throughout the year.
