When considering a wooden workshop for your garden it's important to ensure you do your homework. With many choices available to you it's very easy to buy on price - and price alone. This can be a very bad decision, certainly if you want to have a workshop that's going to last. This is why you should consider seriously these Platinum Junior Wooden Workshops which are based on the Super and Supreme range of workshops.
Although the name is Junior they certainly are not junior in quality. They boast T&G redwood timber throughout, they have the superb Onduline roofing, all the cladding, framing and floor are fully pressure treated and which comes with an expected 15 years freedom against rotting. The Onduline roof also is designed for 15 years protection from leaking. They have screwed diagonal bracing in all corners which give immense strength. And besides all that they have eaves height of 1.8m rising up to 2.4m on all workshops except on the 4ft and 5ft workshops. All of these features ensure these should be the workshop you choose for your garden.
These Junior wooden workshops are constructed solidly in a choice of T&G redwood deal (NOT inferior whitewood) claddings of 15mm or 20mm thick (finished thickness). Combining with 19mm (15mm finish) floors and 16mm (12mm finish) roof - which is covered with Onduline Boarding with its extra long life. You will find that most garden workshops are made from the inferior whitewood - not on these timber workshops.
If you choose this garden workshop for your garden it will be made from the superb long lasting redwood deal ensuring the longest life for your building. Besides the great features of the timber used these workshops boast toughened glass (not cheap horticultural, plastic or perspex) ensuring the greatest strength and peace of mind for when the grand children come round. Naturally the windows are joinery made and not just banged together with some nails like most other workshops available. With diagonal corner bracing these buildings are built to last.
There is a large range of sizes available as standard and also a range of styles. However we can supply a workshop to suit you in the size you want. Your timber workshop can also be made in a style to suit you. The door and windows can be moved, you can have extra doors or windows or no windows. You would like a partition then that's fine as well. We never forget that the workshop is for you and should reflect your wishes and requirements so don't be afraid to ask. Do not settle for second best
When spending your hard earned money, where ever possible, you should take the opportunity to view your potential purchase beforehand. This will give you an chance to inspect the building in detail and to ensure it will meet your needs and also the description given on the web site or brochure. This is where we are different to most wooden workshop companies selling on the internet as we have a show site where you can see a selection of workshops for your inspection and is situated between Woking and Guildford in Surrey where you can see for yourself.
By taking a look yourself you can see the attention to detail on these Junior workshops which would be impossible by looking on a web site or brochure. Great peace of mind before spending a lot of money. The question to ask is what have those other Timber Workshop companies got to hide if they won't let you see their products before purchase>
Besides all the great features as standard and the opportunity to view before hand we also will assemble your new timber workshop or garden sheds workshop free of charge. How good is that? This will save a lot of hard work as assembling a garden workshop can be hard work, certainly a building made as well as the Junior Apex one. Other firms may claim it's easy to erect, mainly because they don't offer an option to do so, but don't be fooled. Besides the hard work it's important to ensure the workshop is built correctly to ensure the longest life for you new building. This will ensure it will stand up to everything 'Mother Nature' throws at it. However if you want to assemble your new workshop yourself then we can offer a discount on our list prices for you.
With the advent of the Internet there have, naturally, been many 'fly by night' companies set up to fleece people from their hard earned money. By the same token there are many which offer first class service and are in the business of looking after their customers so you need to be careful. 1st Choice Leisure Buildings have been involved in the garden workshop and garden storage business since 1979 (before Maggie Thatcher) and we were the first company in the UK to offer their products on the web back in 1996.
So besides the long time in the business we have always been looking at keeping up to date. However we stick to the old fashioned principles which most people value. This is backed up by the independent FeeFo organisation which show the opinion of earlier customers have of 1st Choice Leisure Buildings. By taking a look on sites like this you can get a feel for how good (or bad) a firm is and will enable you to make a judgment before spending your money on your new wooden workshop.

How To Ensure Shed or Summer House Door is Right for You
The garden shed or summer house door needs to be designed to work for a very long time so it is important it is made correctly. You will find decent shed and summer house manufacturers take their responsibilities seriously and will ensure they will stand the test of time.
As well as the importance of having ledges AND braces on the garden shed door it is important to have THREE hinges as this will help to transmit the weight of the shed door across and onto the door frame. If there is only two then the door may bulge slightly in the middle. With a joinery made door then only two hinges are required as the weight of the shed door is supported by the jointed frame.
There are various ways for the garden shed door to be kept closed. The very minimum you want is to have a pad bolt with a turn buckle top and bottom on your door. The pad bolt is a sliding bolt and when closed you can put your padlock onto it to protect your valuables. The turn buckle is simply a flat piece of metal with a hole in the middle. This is screwed onto the garden shed frame and when turned will hold the shed door tightly into position. This will help to stop any movement on the door when there are large changes in weather conditions through the year. - Continue reading --
