Feedback: I spoke on a couple of occasions to Premium and they were able to accommodate my requirements without any problems. Installation was quick and problem free. Everyone I have dealt with has been polite and considerate. What a shed! Beautifully constructed, well insulated and looks well above average as sheds go. It is quite a lovely addition to the garden and makes a great workshop for me to work in. Many thanks!
Response: Thanks for your feedback. We enjoy being able to offer the customer what they would like rather than forcing a limited range on them. That's one of the best bits about being a small family business. I'm pleased the Traditional, which is one of the best sheds available, meets all your needs. Regards, Robin
Garden sheds are really good value and for the extra space they give are really priceless. The addition of extra storage or a garden workshop or hobby room means they are very versatile. In many homes, certainly modern homes, the gardens are quite small but you can still find a garden shed to fit the space you have. Whether it's a small garden shed in the back of the garden or along side the house between the house and a fence then the Diamond Shoreham shed is the answer as these will fill a gap as small as three feet.
In the house built pre-war and even up to the early sixties gardens were much larger and you could select a large garden shed which would become a popular outdoor area used on a regular basis. Most of us who live in these pre-war houses, like me, don't always appreciate how lucky we are with this expanse of garden which can be used for so many things.
Cost wise garden sheds are justifiable if you have a little spare income, if things are tight, then it's hard to justify the extra expense as these outdoor buildings can be patched up for a few more years. As times improve then in a few years the economy of the country should have picked up, I sincerely hope so as so many people are going through a very difficult period, and you can spend a little time deciding what shed will be right for you at that time.
However, over in Canada, an enlightened council in Stratford, Ontario, has decided to buy garden sheds for its residents who are in state supported housing (similar to our council houses or community houses). They are spending $136,000 (£76,474 on purchasing timber garden sheds and these sheds will provide storage for garden items such as bicycles, lawn mowers and garden equipment.
This inspirational idea was supported by Bill Tigent, the town council's social services director, who successfully persuaded the council committee that the spending on these sheds would be worthwhile. This project was brought into fruition because of concerns from some residents that people were storing garden equipment outside and this scheme will improve the standard of social housing in the town.
This scheme in Stratford, which is located on the shores on Lake Huron, will improve the quality of life for residents as they will be able to get out and about in their gardens by having these garden sheds. Only recently it was reported a family in Australia had been living in a garden shed because they could not get any social housing. Whether the residents in Stratford use their sheds for this purpose remains to be seen.
