Andrew’s brief was that we should create a proper wildlife artist’s studio for his stunning riverside setting. He wanted a large picture window to maximise views of the river, so we worked through a series of CAD designs and layouts before approving the final version together.
Tracy came along to one of our monthly open days and gave us her brief. We got to work preparing a quote and drawings of the little workshop/studio that would soon become her garden solace.
Price was important in this project. So we agreed together that the studio walls would have no insulation, as it’s easy to add it in at a later date if needed.
John Shields suggested insulating the floor though, since that can’t be done retrospectively. With an insulated floor and double glazing, Tracy’s plenty warm enough for now.
I would like to say I am extremely happy with my studio and the service I have received from your company. From the very beginning your installation team were all exceedingly polite and considerate and completed the job in a very professional manner. It has been a pleasure dealing with you all - which is a rarity these days - and I would have no qualms whatsoever in recommending you. I look forward to many happy years of creation in my wonderful new studio.
When Paul and Charlotte moved to their new house the first thing they wanted was a new hobby room and office for Paul. Knowing of Shields Buildings already, they were straight on the phone to discuss their ideas.

When Chris and his wife moved to a smaller house, they realised they needed more space as they both work from home.
They wanted a comfortable space to work that was light and airy so they could be creative.
As Chris says in the video, some of the key reasons they chose Shields Buildings was because of the ability to walk around the display buildings, and talk to an expert who listened to their ideas and it felt like a 2-way conversation to create the perfect room.
Whatever your building, you’ll need somewhere to stand! If your building doesn’t come with a floor, don’t fret – we’ll recommend what’s needed for a concrete base to suit your building’s purpose, and provide all the plans and details you need.
If your building comes with a timber floor built in, then all you’ll need is a level site for it to sit on. We can discuss this when we do a site visit. Don’t worry about getting your spirit level out though – our trained installers will deal with that when they arrive to install your building.
Unless you love getting rained on, a roof is pretty much a must, and the good news is that you’ll be well catered for – you can choose from natural finishes of cedar shingles and slate, through to long-lasting plastisol steel sheeting, all in a range of colours.
However many windows you want, your wish is our command. Your windows can either be fixed, or opening, depending on your requirements. Many customers opt for removable security shutters to ensure security when they’re not there.
You may like to add a solid wood floor in oak, ash or walnut in your building.
All the external timber we use is pressure treated northern European redwood, from sustainable and managed sources. It is further protected against the weather with two coats of waterproofer, or if you prefer, you can have it painted in a wide range of colours giving that personal touch.
