Looking for a garden shed that’s got more of a wow factor?
Introducing the posh shed. You won’t find gardening equipment, tools, and bicycles piled inside here! Our posh garden sheds can come fully lined and insulated as well as with a range of customisable options. Your posh shed could be a calming yoga studio or a hobbyists’ workshop, or even a cosy living area to relax in. It’s as much about what the posh garden shed is used for as it is about the additional features that make it a unique and versatile space that you’ll be using as much in January as you will in July.
What is a posh shed?
A posh shed can be whatever you want it to be. It differs from your standard garden shed in that it has more style and presence in your outdoor space and is considered more of a garden feature than something to be hidden away into a dark corner. As well as having aesthetic appeal, it may be much more functional than your typical garden shed. With multiple building styles to choose from, and the opportunity to have it lined and insulated along with other exciting customisable options like roof material and external paint colour, your posh shed can be as posh as you’d like it to be.
Why have a posh shed?
One of the great things about a posh shed is that they help you live an easier and happier life. Whether it’s as simple as looking out of your window onto your garden and seeing your beautiful posh shed fit seamlessly into your planting scheme, or if you have a pretty, functional space to turn into your new yoga studio. A posh shed could be used for anything and there are many reasons why you should consider investing in one.
The benefits of a posh shed
Your posh shed is designed to make your life better, easier, and more enjoyable. A space you can call your own, design it to fit perfectly with your home and garden, as well as providing a space for you to use how you like whether that’s for socialising, working, relaxing, or getting creative.
A posh shed wouldn’t be posh if you couldn’t enjoy it for 12 months of the year, whether it’s 30 degrees in the peak of summer or -3 covered in glittering frost, which is why being fully lined and insulated is a must!
Customised by you
Your posh shed will be everything you imagined it to be. When journeying through our building configurator you will be able to choose exactly what you want from the outside in. Pick your favourite style and start making decisions on how you want it to look, from choosing the cladding and exterior colour to the window and door positioning, to the interior colours and flooring. You’ll create a building you love that will fit seamlessly into your outdoor space and with your existing home.
Whatever you plan to use your posh shed for you will be gaining extra internal space which can be used throughout the year meaning it will never be made redundant or wasted. You may even decide that initially you could use the space as an office for 6 months and then change it to a chillout room in the summer, the space is adaptable and will always be valuable to your home.
Our shed features & considerations
Our posh garden sheds come in a range of styles and sizes whether you’re looking for something small and traditional or large and contemporary or something in between…we have something for every taste. When considering which style is going to look best in your garden, keep in mind it’s intended use. If you are planning to use your posh shed as a hobby workshop then something with more wall space might be preferable, whereas if it’s going to be your new yoga studio you may favour full length windows to create your place of zen.
Customised Paint Systems
With all of our posh garden sheds, you will get the opportunity to choose the external and internal paint colours. We have our own range of paints that you can choose from, or we also have a selection of 12 Farrow & Ball paints available. If there’s a colour you’d like that we don’t have, we can either colour match it for you or we are able to buy in additional Farrow & Ball colours at extra cost.
Fully lined & Insulated
The majority of our posh sheds come fully lined and insulated as standard. To insulate the walls of our buildings we add a breathable membrane between the studwork and then we fill the cavity between the external cladding and internal tongue and groove lining with rockwool. The roof and flooring is insulated with special rigid foam boards which again fit into a cavity between the inside lining and ply layer.
Having a power source in your posh shed can be very useful! We offer an electric pack extra which will pre-install LED spotlights, 4 double sockets, 1 external double socket, and 1 8-way consumer unit to your very posh shed. Not only will you have sufficient light but you’ll be able to plug in a heater, a radio, your hobby tools, and whatever else you plan to elevate your space with. You will need to get a qualified electrician to run the electric from your home to your posh shed and connect it up.

Chap in charge was very friendly and his communication skills were excellent. I was kept up to date continually and given practical advice where necessary. They left the area immaculate, I was really impressed with the whole procedure and will certainly highly recommend Crane Garden Buildings.

I was particularly impressed with the installation crew who completed their task cheerfully and uncomplainingly in what were awkward circumstances, that is they had to park their large rig in my neighbour's long and wide-access driveway and hand-carry every component of the build the 100 yards or so to the site of the base. They worked non-stop throughout the build which was completed mid-afternoon.
