Can You Trust Some Other Shed Manufacturers?

Please click on the little man to find out the basic problems with some shed manufacturers construction methods and the materials used and find out how they really don’t tell you the whole truth about their shed construction.

Why Buy Our Hobbyshop?

  • Our Hobbyshop is our biggest selling garden building range, with so many size variations, optional extras & upgrades and the facility to have your windows and doors fitted wherever you want and the option to have it built to your exact size it isn’t any wonder this is our most popular garden building. Please click the link above to see what you need to avoid in the manufacture of your new garden shed.
  • The timber sizes quoted are the actual timber sizes used in our construction - we do not quote you the nominal size of the timber used as this can easily confuse someone who does not work in the timber industry as a nominal timber of 50mm x 38mm actually is only 38mmx 32mm after it has been machined to size! By quoting nominal timber sizes other shed companies can make their shed framing appear bigger than it really is.
  • The Hobbyshop is a step above a standard garden shed, please do not confuse this building with ones for sale in your local DIY store or other manufactures who only offer low quality 'budget' buildings which are only 'dip treated' or 'solvent based treated' and have very low internal headroom, the Hobbyshop doesn’t compare in its construction methodology, build quality and material used.

  • We quote you both the internal heights and external heights of our timber buildings, most other manufacturers & suppliers only quote the external heights as this is always the tallest measurement making their buildings appear bigger than they really are when you are inside the shed, the measurements you need to know are the internal ones!
  • Our Apex Hobbyshops have an internal head room of 1.97m (6ft 5.5") at the eaves and 2.19m (7ft 2") at the apex, this is much higher than nearly all other manufacturers who normally only quote 6ft at the apex externally which may equate to only 5ft 7" internally (1.7m). Externally the Apex Hobbyshop is 2.1m at the eaves (6ft 11") and 2.365m (7ft 9") at the apex. Our Pent Hobbyshops have similar heights to the high and low sides.  Each Hobbyshop is constructed in our onsite workshops by our skilled craftsmen. Hobbyshops are available in standard sizes from 1.2m wide x 1.2m long  (4ft x 4ft) to 3.6m  wide x 9.0m long  (12ft x30ft) built to under 2.5m high.
  • We can build your Hobbyshop larger if required; please contact us with the size you need.
  • Your Hobbyshop can be built to your exact size requirement so you can utilise the space you need your building to fit into without wasting space at no extra cost, only pay for the nearest standard size building.
  • The width is always the apex (gable end) of our buildings when requesting a building size.

Your Hobbyshop will require weatherproofing and painting immediately after installation; please review our information sheet on weatherproofing and painting your new timber building at the bottom of this page.

Please review our garden building information sheets.
