Before choosing a new transverse apex timber studio for your garden you need to check out the specifications beforehand. In particular, the type of wood it is made from, whether any OSB board is used, and the general build quality. Check the competition out against the spec on our Winchester buildings.
These Winchester buildings are unbeatable for value and you will be amazed about the high specifications. They are more expensive than the general ‘run of the mill’ buildings available but they are NEVER made down to a price. Don’t settle for second best.
It’s great advice to view any building and by doing so you can be sure of the quality. You can be the judge and decide whether the higher price is worth paying. Can that building you are looking at on the ‘web’ be viewed beforehand? And if not – WHY not?
Besides the great quality of these Winchester apex buildings, free assembly is included as standard. Which all adds up to the overall value of them. And it’s always worth checking out customer’s feedback to see what they say.
