Construction

Do l need to prepare the ground?

We all know what happened to the house built on sand. The life of a building depends upon its foundations, so it is vital that your base is firm, level, well drained and large enough to accommodate the building you have ordered. Ideally, your garden building should be installed on a flat concrete slab, which is unlikely to sink or break up. A thickness of 50 to 100mm is sufficient. Alternatively, you could use concrete paving slabs or decking bases. However, you will need to make sure that they are level, will not sink and completely cover the area upon which your shed will stand. If you have any doubts concerning the base, seek advice from a local builder.

Will l need help with assembly?

Many hands make light work, and we recommend you rope in the help of at least one friend to help you assemble your shed.

How long will it take to assemble?

Depending on how handy you are, the shed should take about half a day to assemble.

What tools do I need to assemble my building?

All of the sheds are slightly different, but you will only need basic DIY tools. Please refer to the instructions that will accompany your product for further details.
