Shed rebuild

The customer was hoping I could do something with their much loved and well used shed. The alternative to repair would have been  replacement.  A 20ft x8ft shed  costs around £4000. Then there is the cost of installation to add. So after careful inspection of the floor and floor bearers , I decided that it could be salvaged.

A replacement frame with window  was made and installed. It was then clad in shiplap and re- glazed. All timber used is tannalised and all the end grain treated with wood preservative. A belt and braces approach that results in a new lease of life for the shed and a gentler assault on the wallet!
