Platinum Modern Sun Store Potting Sheds for Your Garden

By utilising your garden and with the addition of this Sun Store potting shed you will be able to enjoy delicious fresh produce at your table allowing you to enjoy a little of the 'Good Life'. However before taking the plunge you need to do a little homework to ensure you won't be disappointed. It's natural to be attracted to cheap prices but there is always a reason an item is cheap. And this mainly stems from the quality of materials used and the care taken in construction. Often using cheap potentially dangerous glass, cheap inferior whitewood and OSB floor and roofs. By buying 'cheap' you can often end up regretting it afterwards.

This modern Sun Store Potting Shed is based on the Platinum Supreme workshops following the same principles. The attention to detail is key to these buildings from the quality of timber used, the brass hinges & 5 lever mortice lock on the stable door, the high grade polyester roofing felt as well as the quality of construction. This includes diagonal bracing in the corners and the screwed joints throughout. A super bench and opening window is also standard. Add in the pressure treating of the floor, cladding and framing and you have a potting shed which is going to last and will be the very best for your garden.

Extra Thick Floor as Standard & Choice of claddings

You can choose from thick 15mm (finished thickness) shiplap or 19mm (finished thickness) loglap redwood T&G cladding for your SunStore potting shed. 19mm (15mm finish) timber is used on the extra strong floor and the roof is 16mm (12mm finish) roof covered with a heavy duty polyester felt. There is an option to upgrade to Onduline if you wish. Solid long lasting redwood timber is standard and not the cheap inferior whitewood commonly used on most potting sheds. The timber used for the cladding, framing and floor is also pressure treated with a design life of 15 years against rotting.

Crucially on a building with a large expanse of glass toughened glass is used as standard and provides great safety in the garden. A prime consideration if children are playing in there. The more commonly used horticultural glass is potentially very dangerous and should be avoided at all costs. Some suppliers use plastic or perspex but this scratches and is noisy when it's windy. Add in the screwed diagonal bracing and the attention to detail is obvious.
