In my earlier blog I was explaining how the garden shed is helpful in starting or running a home business. Because the garden shed is in the garden it is easy to access and is relatively inexpensive. Add in the sheer number of sizes available also help in the flexibility of these versatile buildings. The only problem with garden sheds is the sheer amount of items which are kept in there ‘just in case’.

The garden shed is a haven for storing all sort of things and that is the beauty of it. Whatever you need a home for the shed can provide it ranging from garden tools, children’s bikes, lawnmowers, garden furniture as well as all sort of half used products kept ‘just in case’. These include all those part used cans of paint, timber treatments and garden chemicals which you don’t want to throw away.

One of the most frightening things to happen to an industrial building is fire as this can spread rapidly is allowed to. This is why its essential that every precaution is taken to ensure that your commercial or industrial building has all the fire prevention features in pace. Not only tat you need to have a regular appointed fire officer with the power to insist on action if your industrial building is at risk.

There are certain traditions which have come over from America, which on the whole can be fun. Many of these, dreamed up by card makers I’m sure, extend to grandfathers day, grandmothers day, bosses day (seriously), teachers day, nurses day etc. Any reason at all is good enough reason and I feel this has got a little out of hand.

Over the last few years house prices has either fallen or stagnated, which is a little depressing, so it’s important to look at what you have and try to improve it. Besides the obvious things to do such as keeping the property maintained well and possibly adding a lick of paint the garden and, or, garden buildings is an area where extra value can be added.

At this time of year people are thinking of Christmas and what thye would like or to give and this is where the garden can be full of great ideas. From garden tools – such as a new fork, spade, hoe etc – right the way through to a new garden shed or playhouse for the children.

With the days darkening and with the clocks gone back it’s clear that winter is well on the way. Before long the garden will be lifeless and barren with no leaves on the trees and the ground bare, There is however Christmas to look forward to and if you are a keen gardener then I’m sure your garden shed could do with a few new tools for use in the garden.

Industrial buildings has evolved over the years from timber, stone or brick buildings and as the years have gone by the use of steel has become an important part of these structures. Either for spanning larger areas than what timber is able to through to the use of steel as the main frame, effectively the skeleton, and the building is then clad in a range of materials. Normally concrete, brick or sometimes stone or even veneered stone. Also the more modern industrial buildings are a steel frame clad with steel sheets on the outside. These sheets have a profile shape rolled into them and this industrial action gives great strength to the walls.

The garden shed is typically full of gardening items being stored away or being used as a workshop, however, with the vast amount of old items in the shed the owner could set up their own museum, if they so chose. This may seem a strange use for your shed but this is actually happening.

During the winter the garden shed can look a little forlorn sitting out in the cold and windswept back garden. With the summer gone the shed is not visited very often so always try to prepare it for the long cold winter before it arrives. Ensure the roofing felt is secured down and not torn, mend any broken windows and ensure the door is kept closed so the wind can’t make it swing about in the wind.

Garden Shed maker since 1979. 33 Years of Experience
Introduction

With over 33 years experience of experience in manufacturing Garden Sheds, Summer Buildings and Industrial Steel Buildings you can be sure that I will try to offer the best advice and relevant news in connection with these subjects. Being seen as an authority I feel I have a responsibility to bring relevant articles and news stories to you.
