Give Some Thought Before Choosing Your New Large Garden Shed
When buying a large 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 a big wooden building 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 large sheds available in more or less in any size to suit you. All these sheds 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 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 big shed, 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 buildings so you can make your judgement as to how good they are – or NOT.
Large Sheds Are A Valuable Resource In Your Garden
The gardens of the UK, which can include small and large garden sheds, are one of our prized possessions because of the many uses for it. It’s a place to relax with family, friends or on your own so you can enjoy the solitude. It’s a haven away from the day to day tribulations of life, and the greenery in the garden makes you realise what a great world we live in.
We tend to look after the garden and buy many items to use in it or to help us enjoy the garden. The cost of these varies from very inexpensive items, such as packets of flower seeds, which we can watch and admire when the colour bursts out as they grow, to highly expensive summerhouses with all the ‘bells and whistles’.However, in the sensible world, you will find that large treated sheds are among the top five garden items.
And it not hard to understand why. With the sheer versatility of what can be done with them and the sheer number of sizes and designs, from companies such as 1st Choice Leisure Buildings, you will find that the garden building can meet your exacting requirements. Add in that most of the other garden items bought will be stored in then it’s only amazing that it’s not number one.
Research carried out found that garden table and chairs are the number one purchase by homeowners followed by plants and flowers. The essential lawnmower is then high on the list, whether it’s an electric, petrol or battery one. You will find sales of the old fashioned, but eco-friendly, ‘push-pull’ lawn mowers are relatively low, and I can’t blame people would looking for more comfortable options.
By doing so, they can enjoy barbecues in the garden with their family and friends. The sight of a burnt sausage or a chicken leg falling into the charcoal is all part of the ritual. However, they are very dependent on the weather because at the first sign of rain the barbecue is back in the shed. But not always. I have barbecued in the rain before, and it’s quite an enjoyable experience to share strangely. Barbecues are about 3rd or 4th on the list of most popular garden items.
However large sheds, well indeed good quality treated buildings which are designed to last more than just a couple of years, are some of the most expensive items to buy in the garden. Petrol lawnmowers were also relatively high-value items, but the cost of these have come down in recent years as the imports from China have reduced the costs dramatically.
Other accessories used in the garden are water barrels, typically next to the shed, where you can capture the precious rain and then use it on the garden. These don’t always have to be very large as a small one next to the shed with gutters draining down into it can harvest a great deal of water.
Some people add a ramp to their building, and this can make it easier to wheel items in and out. Although most people don’t have a problem with this. Generally, there is only a small step into the shed. A dehumidifier is seen as an attractive option to some, and this helps to keep items dry inside the shed. However, if the building has adequate ventilation, this does not have to be an essential item.
An alarm is a good idea, certainly if you think about the value of the items collected over the years. This will attract the attention of you or your neighbours if anyone tries to break in. Add in any number of other garden-related items, and you will realise what a great asset this building will be to you. However, it’s important to insure all your garden items in case they are stolen. It’s all too easy not to bother or to under insure until it’s too late. Having said that some insurance companies wouldn’t cover items in the garden shed, however large it may be unless it is securely locked up to reduce the chance of thieves getting in.
