40 years is a long time to have been honing our craft…So it’s safe to say that when it comes to timber products; we know what it takes to produce the best.

“A truly bespoke service”

Timber Building only supplies direct to the public – we do not manufacture products for anyone else as we believe passionately in the importance of owning the entire process of delivery, from source to production to installation.

By taking ownership of this entire process, we can consistently guarantee that the products, services and experience that you receive are of the highest possible quality.

Unlike our competitors, every piece that we design is completely custom made based on your individual needs and requirements. Working closely with our design team, you will have the unique opportunity to design & own a product that is completely your own.

Having your log cabin, garden office, or timber building designed to your own specification not only means that the log cabin that will take pride of place in your garden will truly be unique, but it also means that you can be sure that your log cabin has not been kept in a storage yard exposed to the elements for long periods of time before you buy it.

A long standing commitment to excellence

We employ a dedicated team of in-house master craftsmen, who design, manufacture & quality assure our entire timber product range from within our UK based factories, using the latest state of the art technology and equipment.

We select only the finest, responsibly sourced timber from our trusted European suppliers, with whom we have developed close working relationships over many years.

“Quality Manufacturing, Designed & Built to Last”

THE TIMBER BUILDING DIFFERENCE

People often make the mistake of basing their decision to purchase on a simple size vs competitor pricing comparison.

The problem with taking this approach however, is that the large DIY chains stores have taken to competing so aggressively on price, that they have compromised on quality to a point that their buildings are barely fit for purpose.

We personally believe that if you buy quality, you only ever need purchase once.

Over the past 40 years we have built a strong reputation based on quality, durability and consistently delivering products that stand the test of time.

When you invest in a building from TimberBuilding.com you are purchasing it directly from the manufacturer. We take great pride in being able to say that we own the entire process…From timber sourcing, right through to Design, Manufacture & Assembly. This is incredibly important because it allows us to offer competitive pricing, while still delivering the best quality products on the market.

The easiest way for you to see this difference in quality is to pay us a visit at one of our UK showrooms. However for those who live a little further afield, we’ve taken the liberty of creating a virtual tour. Simply click on the screen below to take a 3D walk through one of our beautiful timber builds…You can even view with a virtual reality headset!

Please also take into consideration the following points:

THE TYPE OF TIMBER

Timber Building

The timber we use is strictly harvested from sustainable and managed European forests. The timber is slow grown (taking approximately 80 years) meaning that when harvested, the wood is tighter grained making it significantly more durable. Many of our buildings are also pressure treated (tanalised) imbuing the wood with protection against rot and infestation, so it will last longer in your garden.

Others

The timber is often fast grown (10 years), so the wood is lighter and less durable. Most buildings are not pressure treated, meaning that when left in a damp climate (such as the UK) they are quickly subject to rot and infestation. Many also harvest their timber from unmanaged forests, and uncertified sources.

THE SIZE OF TIMBER

Timber Building

Our framing is generally 75mm x 50mm nominal timber, and our smallest cladding is 25mm thick. Floors are 22mm nominal. The size of timbers we use ensure that our buildings are sturdy and robust, making them durable and long lasting. Ideal for Outbuildings, Workshops and Storage.

Others

A shed from a garden centre would typically have 25.4mm x 25.4mm timbers with a 12mm shiplap cladding, leading to walls that wobble and move.

BUILDING HEIGHT

Timber Building

Our standard eaves height is over 6ft tall, which maximises the space for internal storage. Additionally, due to the thickness and strength of our framing…Timber shelves can be fitted easily and are robust enough to carry heavy loads.

Others

To save money on timber, many of the DIY chains sell sheds with an eaves height of less than 5ft meaning you can only stand up in the middle of shed. This reduced space leaves less space for shelving, and due to the thin frame timbers, makes it difficult to hang or fix large items.

FRAME FIXINGS

Timber Building

At Timber Building we only use twist nails which act like a screw when fixing the framing timber. This ensures a stronger fix and therefore…a stronger shed.

Others

Many cheaper sheds are fixed using only staples on the frame timber. This provides little in the way of support and allows for movement in the walls.

FLOOR AND ROOF TIMBERS

Timber Building

We only use wood in our floors and roof. Our floors are strong enough to put heavy loads onto and can even support most motorbikes. For further peace of mind, additional bearers can be added for extra strength if required.

We make our sheds so that you can comfortably walk on the roof. This allows for easy maintenance. Many of our sheds have been re-felted and are still standing in peoples gardens after 30 years of use.

Others

To reduce material costs many sheds use inferior Oriented Strand Board on the floor and roof. This is a material that consists of waste timber that has been glued together to form sheets. Manufacturers then use it for roof and floor covering, however once it gets wet…it expands and deteriorates very quickly, meaning the shed will need to be replaced.

When OSB is used on a roof, it is unable to support any weight. If the felt fails or is damaged, repairs become incredibly difficult.

GLASS

Timber Building

As a general rule our glass is toughened, and double glazing is available on request.

Others

Many sheds use plastic, styrene or 3mm horticultural glass. This breaks very easily often leaving sharp and jagged edges. Perspex also becomes brittle, and most plastics discolour when exposed to the sunlight.

DOORS – LOCKS

Timber Building

All of our doors are made with diagonal braces, coupled with mortice & tennon joints, making them strong and durable. Doors have 5 lever mortice locks and rebated hinges, making them secure compared to most other garden buildings. It also means the doors cannot be unscrewed from the outside.

Others

A standard shed door is often made without a cross brace, meaning that it inevitably becomes difficult to close over time. Locks are rare, however for those that do, they are often fitted with “T hinges” which can easily be unscrewed from the outside, making the shed an open invitation to be broken into.

ROOF COVERINGS

Timber Building

Our standard roof covering is 45KG green mineral felt, which is a heavy and most durable felt. Other roof coverings can be added both for improving the appearance and also the longevity of the roof if you prefer.

Others

Supplied with standard shed felt which is light weight and low quality.

TRUSSES

Timber Building

Most of our buildings will have a truss every 4-5 feet, making the building stronger and more rigid

Others

Many will not have trusses

WINDOWS

Timber Building

All of our doors and windows are bespoke manufactured to your unique specifications, offering total flexibility in the design and layout

Others

Have a limited range of models to choose from for you to take or leave, and have no option to customise.
