Sheds & Workshops Make Organising And Securing Your Belongings A Breeze
Well made Platinum buildings are the answer to the problem of what to do with all the stuff and clutter the average family accumulates in the course of everyday life. With lots of thrifty styles, types and materials to choose from, there are cheaper sheds to suit any purpose and any location. You can find plans online, in books of plans available at your local home improvement centre, book store or library, or you could draw them up yourself.

Many online websites offer free building plans. There are also companies that market them through the mail. Many cheap buildings are available as kits. And some only consist of the framework, so you would need to purchase all the wood, felt, hardware, doors, and so on, separately. Others include everything you need to build your new building quickly and easily. With pre-cut timber, packets of screws, nails and hardware and all the other components necessary, you can make your cheap shed reasonably quickly.

Whether you build your shed from scratch or decide to purchase a complete building, you will need to lay a foundation first. This can be post and beam or gravel, but most people prefer concrete. You may need to hire someone to lay the foundation for you, but it’s well worth it. Getting a good, solid foundation in place will ensure that your building will continue to add value to your property for a good, long time.

These buildings can be bought in several venues and from a variety of companies. Look online to get an idea of prices, materials and appearance. Once you have done some research, visit local garden centres to get a good look at them and to see what is available in your area. Armed with complete information, you will be able to make a wise and informed decision regarding the type of shed you want to purchase.

Cheap sheds come in heavy-duty plastic, metal and wood in a variety of colours. The type you choose will depend on several things. You will want to select a material that is appropriate for the kind of weather you usually have in your area. Additionally, you’ll need to check any restrictions in your area to determine what materials, colours and sizes are allowed when building a garden shed.

The intended purpose of your shed would also be a deciding factor in the type you purchase. If you plan on keeping perishables, such as animal feed or dry goods, you may want to get a metal shed to deter rodents but be aware of condensation and damp inside. If you need a very secure shed for keeping valuable tools or a motorcycle, metal or wooden sheds are both appropriate choices. If you want a shelter to keep your lawn chairs and cushions, pool toys and that sort of thing, a timber shed is an inexpensive, easily assembled solution. However, these wooden buildings can be built free of charge for peace of mind.
Give Some Thought Before Choosing Your New Building

When buying a garden building, you may think it’s very straight forward. Open up a browser on your computer and type in the size you need and then look for the lowest price. Seems easy? But, unfortunately, it’s not if you want the best value building to meet your needs. There are many different grades of structures available, a bit like all the different cars available. All will do a job, but they won’t all do everything, so you need to decide what is important to you.

If you want the very cheapest building then look just on price but if you want it to last then research what it is made from. What type of timber, how tall is it, does it include a proper floor, toughened glass and free assembly as not everybody wants to struggle to build a large building.

All our wooden Platinum sheds are available in more or less in any size to suit youa>. All of these include free assembly saving you loads of money and making life just a little easier. They can be made bespoke to suit your needs in a range of styles, sizes and finishes.

All wooden building have toughened glass as standard for safety and feature good height, strong doors and are complete with ‘proper’ timber roofs (no chipboard or OSB boards used).

Before buying a shed or workshop, try to find the time to see it before going ahead. That way you can be sure it will meet your expectations and won’t be an expensive flop. Don’t regret not doing so.

By taking a little time and writing down what is important to you and how long you are hoping the building to last, you will then be able to shortlist suitable models. And the best bit of advice is to visit a show site and see examples of wooden buildings so you can make your judgement as to how good they are – or NOT.

Take a look at our workshop or shad images to see what other people have done with their bespoke buildings as this may inspire you to come up with ideas which will be right for you.
