The summer of the staycation

Summer 2020 – they’re calling it the ‘summer of the staycation’. With borders closed, flights grounded and travel restricted, we’re all going to be spending more time at home than we usually would.

So why not make sure that your home is the best possible holiday destination, and give yourself somewhere to get away from it all, read, knit, work or paint?

Whatever it is you do, do it in ultimate comfort with a Shields Building.

A building that stands the test of time

There are garden buildings, and there are garden buildings.  Make sure yours is the latter, by opting for pressure-treated, slow-grown timber that guarantees a strong, sturdy building for years to come.

Not just a glorified shed

If you’re serious about a garden building that lasts for years, you need a proper base, which is why our buildings with timber floors are priced to include installation and a concrete block base, providing secure foundations you can rely on.

Made in Devon, by people from Devon

We don’t ship our buildings in from China, or anywhere else in the world for that matter.  Our timber arrives from Scandinavia, and we handmake our buildings right here in North Tawton.  Our team assemble them at your property – the same people look after your building from initial build to finished installation.

No ‘one size fits all’

We all know that one size doesn’t fit all, so why would you accept it with a garden building?  Every single one of our buildings is bespoke and handmade to order, which means you get exactly what you want, from size to special features.

Reassuringly long in the tooth

We’ve been around for 29 years.  We’re not fly-by-nights, and we’re not faceless or nameless.  If you ever have an issue, we’ll solve it for you.  End of story.

Constructing and consulting

We’ve made so many buildings that we know planning permission and building regulations like the back of our hands.  If you need help in that area, we’re at your disposal, and can even submit your application for you, if that’s what you need.

 Time to get the ball rolling on your Shields Building for this summer?  Hit reply, or call us on 01837 82442 and we’ll take it from there.

Planning permission
When does a timber building need planning permission? Many buildings will not need permission, but you are always advised to check first.
