With our versatility in design, size and finish we can provide you with a Garage that will meet all your requirements.
The robust construction will give you a long-term building for use as a workshop with a sturdy concrete floor, a place to store your vehicle(s) in, or for multiple uses with the help of a partition.

Our Timber Garages are available in a range of sizes:
3.0 x 4.8m (10 x 16ft) to 4.8 x 6.0m (16 x 20ft)
Our timber doors are framed, ledged and braced, mortised and tenoned made in our workshops by our in-house joiners to ensure their quality.
To accommodate 2 double doors in your garage you will need to allow a minimum of a 5.4m frontage. You can also add a personnel door to the side of the garage.
If you would like an up and over door as part of your new garage, please source the door of your choice from a local company and provide us with the dimensions (up to 8ft wide). We will make the building to your specifications, leaving an aperture ready for your garage door company to come in once we have installed the building.
We make our own windows within our Joinery Works to ensure quality. They are glazed with 4mm toughened safety glass as a standard safety feature. All garages come with 6 windows and you can choose where to have them, it is possible to add windows or not to have any. We can make the windows opening and we offer Georgian effect or Velux® roof windows as alternative choices.
Our windows measure 610 x 610mm (2’ x 2’). They are made from 75 x 50mm framing and finished with 4mm toughened safety glass.
Our timber cladding is machined from very high quality Redwood grown in Northern Sweden, close to the Arctic Circle.
Due to the low temperature in this part of the world, these slowly grown trees produce a much more dense and stable timber than others. The timber mill we partner with, and have very close links to, is FSC® certified like ourselves.
We machine our cladding into particularly thick boards, and because it's a slowly grown timber with an exceptionally close grain, the additional benefits of our cladding are its strength and durability. We machine a capillary groove into our shiplap to reduce the risk of water ingress; and also give our shiplap rounded edges so that paints and stains grab and adhere with maximum effectiveness and coverage.
We clad your building in shiplap as standard, but we also offer weatherboard cladding for a more rustic finish.
Due to the main uses of garages (storing your car inside, or using it as a workshop with heavy items inside), our Garages are set on to a concrete base and do not have floor boards to allow these heavy items to sit on a floor sturdy enough to support them.
With our Timber Garages, we offer a wide range of roofing material options, so whether you want a simply designed garage, or something a bit more attractive, we can help.
Our Timber Garages are exceptionally strong and robust. We have devised a unique Security Pack that will complement this structure and be of benefit if any items of value are to be stored inside.
Since the introduction of our Security Pack in 1994 theft from our customers sheds has been virtually eradicated. We offer a 3 step Security Pack consisting of window bars mortised into the window frames, non-returnable screws are used on the hinges of the door, and we have worked with a lock manufacturer to produce our unique 7 lever security lock.
Our Garages come treated with light oak wood preservative as standard, which protects the timber from fungi and woodworm and gives the timber a natural looking sheen. We also offer three paint ranges to choose from: these are Exterior, Farrow & Ball and Sikkens, to give the best possible paint options for your building.
- High quality exterior paint.
- Weather resistant and protective.
- Fully opaque four coat system.
- Inspired by nature and the soft neutral tones of traditional colonial buildings.
Farrow & Ball
- High quality exterior paint.
- Water resistant and anti-fungal.
- Rich, fully opaque colour.
- Specially selected colours from the Farrow & Ball paint collection.
- High quality coloured wood stains.
- Long lasting protection.
- Mid sheen finish.
- Allows the grain to be seen through the stain.
Lining & Insulation
In order for you to use your building all year-round, to increase your comfort and decrease any noise levels, we can line and insulate our Timber Garage, which also finishes the inside off in an attractive manner.
If you choose to have the oak faced ply lining, insulation in the walls and ceiling will be included as well. Floor insulation can be chosen separately.
To finish off your Garage, both aesthetically and for practical purposes, you can choose any of these extra features for your building to suit your requirements.
For lighting and using any equipment in your building, you may wish to consider our electric pack. 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 any internal lining, and we can also supply your building with a heater, if you so wish.
If you choose to have an electric pack, you will get:
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:
- 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.
We 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.
