1st Choice Leisure Buildings, A Family Business, Established 1979
With over thirty years experience in the garden & leisure building industry we can easily spot the difference between a good quality building and an exceptional one and we positively refuse to lower our standards. You can find cheaper buildings but you won't find better. All of our partners have been carefully chosen to offer the finest selection of buildings, with the best after-sales service, at the very best prices.
We believe that it is vital that you are given the opportunity to inspect a building before parting with your so we have established an easily-accessible display site near Guildford in Surrey where you can come and view sixty buildings from all of our main ranges of buildings. You can browse at your leisure without worrying about any high pressure salesmen pouncing on you (not that we would employ that type in any case!). If you need any help then we are there to advise.
Our full range of timber (not log cabins) and concrete buildings will be installed free of charge at the time of delivery providing there is a suitable base. And if there isn't, don't worry, we can build that for you too for a small extra charge. Optional fitting service for log cabins.
Some companies stockpile buildings outside which can often result in weather and storage damage. Each and every one of our timber buildings is individually constructed by craftsmen in our UK factories and delivered direct to your garden using our own vehicles. Doing things the right way takes slightly longer, of course, but isn't it worth the wait to get a building which will last?
No two gardens are the same so why restrict the building that sits within? Every timber building leaving our UK factories has been individually designed for you. This may seem like a minor difference when comparing us to our production line rivals but it is actually quite a significant one. We're not just talking about a wider door or moving a window: every aspect is fully customisable to your precise requirements. Take a look at our gallery for some examples!
We offer a full base construction service (cost-effective timber subframe, concrete or slab options) to most areas. This is an oft overlooked service which we are proud to offer alongside another important service: site clearance and the removal of existing timber and concrete buildings (we also have contacts for those with Asbestos roofs).

This is a commonly asked question and you will find that most garden sheds, workshops, summerhouses and log cabins are exempt from most planning limits provided the building is more than 2m away from the boundary or less than 2.5m overall height. You will find this will cover most situations but it's YOUR responsiblity to check for your own location. You can do by calling your local council and asking to speak to the planning officer. This will ensure you won't have any issues afterward.

The main purpose of the roof is to protect your valuables from rain and snow thus keeping them dry. Besides this is helps to ventilate the shed and aids the long life of your building.
There are several designs for a shed roof such as an apex roof, sometimes referred to as a gable roof which looks like an upside down 'V'. This design is very popular in Britain as it is quite attractive when situated in your garden. The basic design consists of two roof sections meeting in the middle of the shed or summerhouse. This roof can slope in either direction, certainly the better garden shed manufacturers would be able to offer this.
