When investing in a garden room, garden shed, summerhouse or other type of garden building, regardless of its value, to maximise the life of it, one of the most important decisions you have to make is what the actual building is going to stand on once it is in your garden.
Whichever option you do opt for, you should make sure it is correctly installed, otherwise you could find that your pride and joy quickly turns into something that is no longer a joy to use.


Even the smallest garden shed is relatively heavy (in excess of 150kg), and with a poorly laid or insufficient foundation and varying ground conditions, over time, it will settle unevenly and lead to premature deterioration. Door and window frames will become misaligned and opening or closing them will be difficult. NB: not installing a sufficient base for your garden building is likely to invalidate any warranty that comes with it. The base should be constructed from reinforced concrete at least 100mm thick and protrude from the ground by a minimum of 50mm. We recommend constructing a base to the stated metric size (rather than the imperial size) otherwise, it will extend beyond the building and look unsightly.
Local ground conditions will affect the finished base and it is vital that it does provide sufficient support.
We offer a cost effective additional base construction service so you can be confident that your building will not deteriorate prematurely. We have been building market-leading quality garden buildings for over 40 years at our factory, near Kings Lynn in Norfolk. Highly-skilled craftsmen hand-make every component (including doors and windows) using FSCĀ® Certified timber and expert joinery techniques, to create exceptionally strong and robust buildings that will last year upon year. It is extremely important that all garden buildings are constructed on a firm and level base which is constructed from the correct, durable material.
We also specialize in Custom Made Sheds and delivery areas include London and the South East, including Kent, Essex, Sussex, Surrey, Middlesex, Hampshire, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire & Middlesex.

Import charges previously quoted are subject to change if you increase you maximum bid amount. Rain coming in through gaps or cracks can damage the contents and advance damage or rotting of the wood. With that in mind, we strongly recommend seeking local professional assistance when constructing a concrete base. Assembling the base incorrectly can lead to future deterioration of the product such as doors dropping out of square, thus becoming complicated to use or causing a water leakage.
If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable. Misalignment will also put undue stress on other parts of the structure, leading to cracking or breaking and will cause further issues. Note: The incorrect assembling of a garden building on an incorrect base is also likely to void any guarantee that may come with your shed.
First of all, always remember that placing the base too close to any walls, fences or other objects may cause problems. Branches are likely to grow and come into contact with your shed, so do your best to avoid. Check for overhanging foliage regularly as any rubbing on the roofing felt may well lead to your shed becoming vulnerable to adverse weather conditions and even rain. The reason for the original excavation to be 2" bigger all round is to take into consideration the wooden frame, you will now have an internal area exactly 8'x 6'.
If you decide to use thicker timber you will need to take this into consideration at the stringing out stage.
A concrete mix of 5 parts ballast 1 part cement should now be mixed and poured into the area, enough concrete should be poured so that it is just proud of the formwork, it can now be tampered down level and flat using a straight piece of solid timber, the result is a smooth level concrete pad. This wooden frame can then be levelled into the pea shingle for a well drained wooden base.
Which ever base you decide to build it is important that the floor has enough support the entire length of the building and this support has to be level and flat.
