John Shields and his team run their timber buildings business from an ancient farm in a valley on the edge of Dartmoor in mid-Devon, South West England. Situated in the home that has been part of his family since John’s great-grandfather, Ernest May, bought it back in 1916, they have been designing, crafting and installing garden buildings, sheds, studios, garages and workshops since 1991.

With vast experience John Shields has become the foremost supplier of timber buildings in the South West of England. Product quality and service underpin everything they do and John and his team possess the rare ability to interpret a customer’s requirement and translate it into their dream outdoor space using materials and designs, which are proven to stand the test of time.

The comprehensive ranges of beautiful timber buildings are used as anything from a simple garden shed to art studios, workshops, garden entertaining, storage and displays for model trains, garages for classic cars or a home office space.

With one simple quote the timber building can be built, delivered and installed in as little as eight weeks, with a reliable delivery service all offered as part of the job.

John Shields will also work on turnkey projects offering a complete service including planning permission applications, site clearance, base work, building design, delivery and construction; ensuring that the process is as smooth and hassle free as it can be.

A range of the timber buildings are available to view at the Shields Buildings site, easily accessed on the A3124 between North Tawton and Whiddon Down. Equally, many buildings are purchased both as standard and bespoke, after viewing the product descriptions online.
