Garden office review
Sometimes, in the hurly burly nature of daily life, it’s easy to forget why you do what you do. You snap into autopilot, doing the same tasks that need doing, without really thinking.

Remember the February storms?
As we are now just into June, I’m looking back at the year and can scarcely believe how quickly it’s gone. It feels like only yesterday we were ringing in the new year, and yet here we are, just a day away from the Jubilee celebrations, which felt a long way away during the cold, wet winter.
Don’t judge us, but we went to see the new Downton Abbey movie at the weekend. If it’s your sort of thing, I can strongly recommend it.
Made to last
We were at a wedding on Saturday. It was a lovely, joyful occasion – the kind that we’ve had far too few of during the last couple of years.
We had lunch recently with some people based here in the South West, who we’ve just created a brand new timber garden building for, and an interesting question was raised:
As you’ll know by now, we’ve got an outdoor display site, where you can see examples of pretty much all the timber building types we offer.
It’s rare that we offer any discounts here at Shields Buildings, but this week, one customer has the chance to save £2,000 on the timber garden building of their choice.
The Christmas mediator
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.
We don’t do this very often
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.
