Maintaining the look of your timber building
We are often asked what maintenance is necessary on a timber building. Due to the quality of the wood
, preservative and finish your bespoke timber building from Shields Buildings should require little in the way of maintenance. But we all need a check-over as we head towards summer. Here are a few tips.
Three new display buildings on show

Delivering a superb timber building
“I've been meaning to write to you for some time to let you know how much my garden room has added to my enjoyment of living here. It took several months before the various jobs were completed in the garden itself and also just equipping the room, but it has given me so much pleasure - it's great!” Marion Sankey - Bideford

The Benefits of Building With Timber
Timber (or lumber, as our friends across the pond call it) has been used to make buildings of various shapes and sizes for most of mankind's history. Using timber for buildings and framework is a practice that dates back to Neolithic times, approximately 10,000 BC. There are still some surviving timber structures found in Europe which are many centuries old. Not surprising when you consider that one of the best things about timber is how long it lasts. Providing it is properly preserved, a timber building will easily outlast the people who built it!
Breathing New Life into Your Hobby
We've all got something that we love to do or would love to be doing 'if only we had more time'. Having more time, of course, is one of the joys of retirement - the one thing that people look forward to more than anything else - time you can call your own. So what hobby or activity brings a smile to your face and makes your time a pleasure?
