    Shed Features

    ‘Little Woodlands’ was built in August 2022 on a small area of disused land to the side of the main property. The structure is a proper shed; no bars, no workshops, no games areas….. just a shed for storing items. The shed was required as the garage at the property was converted to living accommodation. Rather than purchase an uninspiring off the shelf shed we wanted to design and build an attractive long lasting structure which oozed traditional charm and which would be an asset to the property. The shed has a plain tiled pitched roof, oak columns on low level brick piers and timber shiplap cladding. The roof projects on two elevations to further enhance the appearance of the shed and to form log storage areas

    The main challenge with the design was to consider the impact of the topography of the site which sloped across the width of the shed. The footprint of the shed was levelled by building up the ground level to the rear of the shed and lowering the ground at the front. The shed has a simple concrete raft foundation with low level brick walls. The upper walls are timber framed, lined externally with timber shiplap boarding (treated with cuprinol). Oak posts and oak detailing were provided to enhance the design and to create the character of the structure. The pitched roof is clad with plain tiles. Oak sleepers form a retaining wall around the front of the shed with a porcelain tile path leading to the shed. The shed has two compartments accessed be different external doors; a larger enclosure for storing bulkier items and a smaller shed which has been fitted with shelving, storage hooks and brackets etc for storing small items and tools. The shed has been designed so that it can be converted to living accommodation in the future. Power to the shed is provided by solar panels on the roof of the main dwelling.
