Optional Extras for Economy Sheds

 

Optional Extras & Image Pictures For The Forest Economy Sheds & Garden Stores


Stable Door

A split opening shed door, allowing the bottom half to be closed with the top half open, excellent for ventilation. 

 


Double Doors

To replace the standard single door and provide up to a 5ft wide opening, enabling larger objects to be put into the shed.

 


Heavy Duty Two-Tier Timber Work Bench

Standard workbenches are 2’6’’ wide x the length required. The benches are often tailor made to fit the layout of the shed.

 


Internal Timber Shelves

Standard shelves are 8’’ wide x the length required. The shelves are often tailor made to fit the layout of the building.

 


Allowance for Omitting the Standard Timber Floor

A pressure treated perimeter timber base plinth is supplied with all buildings, which do not have a timber floor to prevent the  building from having direct ground contact.

 


Shed Site Assembly onto a Prepared Base

Assembly of the shed or garden store onto an existing or specially prepared base, including felting the roof and glazing the  windows.

 


Pressure Treated Floor Bearers

3’’ x 2’’ pressure treated floor bearers are strongly recommended to level the shed or garden store floor onto an existing or  specially laid concrete base, paved patio or decking area, to raise the building by approximately 2’’ to allow for air  circulation under the floor and to prevent any part of the building from having direct ground contact. The bearers usually  run in the shortest dimension. The floor/joists of the building are secured to the bearers.

 


Mixture of Bricks, Blocks & Packing

A mixture of loosely laid bricks, blocks and packing are used to level and support the floor bearers at 4ft intervals onto an existing fairly level soil or lawn site, where no base has been specially prepared. This method can only be used providing the slope of the proposed site is no more than 16’’.

 


Perimeter Base Gravel Boards

Pressure treated gravel boards are cut to size and fitted around the perimeter of the floor to disguise the brick/block packing used to level and support the bearers onto a sloping site.

 


Reinforced Concrete Base

A 4’’ - 6’’ thick reinforced concrete base is laid to the external base dimensions of the shed. The quoted prices allow for up to a 9’’ fall in the ground. The site will be dug out as required to enable the lowest side of the base to be slightly sunk into the ground and finished just above the existing ground level. All spoils dug out for the base will be removed from site. Additional costing’s are available to quotation for sites which slope more than 9’’.

 


Two Coats of Cuprinol or Sovereign SX70 Wood Preservative or Stain

As a budget wood stain or preservative we offer two coats of Cuprinol decorative preserver, Cuprinol Shades stain or  Sovereign SX70 stain onto all external timber surfaces of the shed prior to delivery to enable the preservative or stain to be applied to areas which can not be protected once the building has been constructed. The preservative or stain is applied  directly onto the already pressure treated timber. The Cuprinol Shades wood stain is available in approximately 20 different opaque colours and the Cuprinol preservative and SX70 are available in approximately 6 different translucent  colours.

 


Guttering & Downpipes

Black round guttering and a downpipe can be fitted to each side of the roof eaves. The quoted price is for one side of the roof only.
