10 x 8 wooden sheds and garden workshops are reasonably straightforward buildings consisting of four walls, a roof and, usually from the better manufacturers, a solid substantial floor. The height will vary – maybe just enough room to walk in on the sheds but definitely good head clearance on the shed as this will make it more comfortable to work in. Size again varies greatly from maybe as small as 4 ft x 3 ft for a little storage unit and up to 20 ft x 12 ft for a fully functioning, all singing heavy duty building.
One of the most popular size is 10ft x 8ft (10×8) and can be transverse in size such as 8 x 10. Add in the different styles of roof and you can see there is a building to suit everyone including you.
There is normally a choice of workshop or shed door which will reflect the usage of the building. As standard there would be a single hinged door but maybe double doors on the larger garden workshops. Stable doors will allow the door to be open but allow air in the top half. These doors would also allow the building to be used for your animals. Doors with glass in is another variation and also allows light into the building and for you to see out whilst keeping you warm and dry from the weather.
A standard shed door on most 10 x 8 shed would be ledged and braced for strength. This means on each door there will be three horizontal timber and two diagonals bracing bars. The planks of wood for the door would be nailed onto them. It is VERY important that a door has the diagonal braces because without then the door will start to drop very quickly after assembly making the opening and closing of the door difficult. Heavy duty garden shed doors tend to be much sturdier with a jointed timber frame and this allows for a mortise lock to be included for a more secure building.
Garden sheds can come with or without windows depending on the use of it. On most of the cheaper buildings horticultural glass is used. This glass is likely to have imperfections in it but it’s OK as you can see out. The far better option is to have windows which utilise toughened glass as standard. This is far safer for your family, especially where children are involved, as it is specially treated to ensure that IF it breaks it will break into small granules of glass rather that jagged shards which horticultural will do. Other options include laminated or wired glass. Rather more expensive and would not normally be required except in high risk areas. As a breath of fresh air both the Diamond and Platinum range of 10ft x 8ft sheds and buildings come complete with toughened glass as standard.
