Bespoke Workshop / Office / Man Cave

Working Together

When Paul and Charlotte moved to their new house the first thing they wanted was a new hobby room and office for Paul. Knowing of Shields Buildings already, they were straight on the phone to discuss their ideas.

Overcoming Obstacles

After the site visit, Shields Buildings were able to advise on the best location and size for their timber garden building. The most challenging aspect was going to be manoeuvring the panels and roof parts through some tight spaces and past a few over-sized shrubs that were in the way to get to the site at the back of the garden. A plan was sorted in advance, so on the day, the installation team could get straight on with the build.

What Was Achieved

A few months later and Paul is the proud owner of this lovely workshop/office which he affectionally refers to as his ‘Man Cave’. Initially Paul’s wife thought there would be space inside for her hobbies too, but loving it so much Paul has taken it all over, so maybe a 'She Shed' is next?

"Shields Buildings have made my dream a reality. From the bespoke design through to the installation of my office, John and his team were fantastic. Apart from the “no problem” attitude, they also offered some very useful advice about fitting out the interior. I now have a “Man Cave” that is everything I had hoped for – and the envy of friends and family! "
