“Can you do this?”
July was one of our busiest ever months here at Shields Buildings, as people make up for lost time. It’s fantastic to see things moving again, and personally I’m loving talking to customers again, and helping them achieve what they want to with their outdoor space.
Handmade in Devon
A question I’ve been asked quite a bit recently is:
We are open
It’s confirmed; we’re off to bonny Scotland on holiday. After getting over the disappointment of our cancelled trip Stateside, we’ve regrouped, and we’re planning on heading north of the border.
And not just because I want to stop running in the rain!
Now it's official, we can go on holiday this summer
Now it’s official – we can go on holiday this summer. The government finally released the list of countries on the ‘air bridge’ list last week, prompting holidaymakers to jump online, or head to their local agent to book something up.
Bespoke timber buildings
We’ve been busy recently. To be honest, that’s a bit of an understatement. As lockdown eases, and people come out of hibernation, projects for bespoke timber buildings are popping up all over the place.
Combination buildings, I'll be whatever you want me to be
It’s funny how certain adverts stick in your mind, isn’t it? From Coca Cola’s ‘Holidays Are Coming’ piece that heralds the start of the festive season through to the inimitable Budweiser ‘Wassup’ ad, over the years there are several ads that have been completely ingrained into my brain.
The best of both worlds?
The pandemic has meant that it’s very quickly gone from the thing that a few people did, to something that nearly 50% of us are doing. And despite having to make do with kitchen tables and back bedrooms, a sizeable chunk of these impromptu workers appear to be enjoying it.
Taking the next step in the Covid-19 world with 'Safe Saturdays'
We’re back up and running here, but well aware that the virus is still a risk, but we are taking the next step in the Covid-19 world.
The garages we create blend in beautifully with their surroundings
I never thought June would see me pining for the days of April, but looking at the weather forecast and seeing six straight days of rain has changed all that. In a magnificent demonstration of Murphy’s Law, just as soon as Boris started lifting restrictions, the temperature started to drop and the heavens began opening – bad news for those of us wanting to meet friends outdoors, and bad news for those looking to keep their cars sheltered from the elements.
