Chances are you don’t want to, but for just a few seconds cast your mind back to March 2020, when the first lockdown hit. The ‘work from home’ guidance came in almost overnight, with people scrabbling to put together home offices, find keyboards, mice and all the necessary tech.
Despite January being a tad on the depressing side – thanks to the post-Christmas lull, the drizzle and the uncomfortably low temperatures – it’s also an optimistic one.

With Christmas just days away, it’s all go in the Shields household. Food shop prep, present wrapping, it will all happen in the next few days, but thanks to another development in the family, I fear I’ll be spending a lot of my time doing something rather less festive.
As you’ll probably know, we don’t do very many ‘offers’ at Shields Buildings, and we certainly steer clear of Black Friday type, bargain basement sales.

Every now and again, we get someone ring up and compare our prices to the flatpack buildings you can buy online.
We often get asked about the sort of garden buildings we make here at Shields Buildings. And really, it’s a bit like the ‘how long is a piece of string?’ type question.
