By asking you a lot of questions we make sure that we understand exactly what you want to achieve
Since all our buildings are handmade, your building will be just the right size to suits your requirements
It is helpful to have photos of the site and details regarding access
A site visit may be required at this stage
Step 2 - Your Quotation
Our services include bespoke design, planning applications, site clearance, base work (for smaller buildings), delivery and installation
Your quotation will be prepared based on all the discussions we have had with you. It will include all you need to know about the proposed building, the base detail, accessories, our terms of payment and of course the price
Step 3 – Technical drawings
A set of CAD scale drawings is included so you can see exactly what your building will look like. The drawings are a useful tool for your decision-making process and for planning should you need it
Any revisions requested are also provided free of charge
Step 4 – Placing your order
Once you are happy with the drawings and quotation it’s easy to confirm your order
Simply sign and return the Order Form (sent with the quotation) and pay your 30% deposit
Your building will be custom made for you by our experienced team here in our workshops at de Bathe Farm, Devon
Step 6 – Communication
Once you place your order we will agree the installation date with you and remain in regular contact to keep you updated on progress
We will do a site visit at this stage if it’s not already been done
Step 7 – Installation
We manage your project from start to finish
The base will be provided if this is specified in your quotation, otherwise we will provide you with a plan for a suitable base
In advance we will discuss with you how long the installation team will be on site. This can be from one day for a small shed to two weeks for a large insulated studio

An Impressive Finish
It's important that your building is beautiful inside and out, which is why we can colour match the exterior Superdec paint to a colour of your choosing for that perfect finish. Alternatively, you can have the building stained in a colour to blend in with your house or other buildings.
A timber building needs quality internal wall lining, we have several options for you to choose from. Standard 12mm MDF board, but if you want something a little more sophisticated there's 'Neatmatch' or pine tongue and groove, the choice is yours.
We work with you to ensure your vision and the designs for your bespoke building meet all your requirements, giving you a wonderful environment and the space you need. We will create a space that's great to work or relax in, is space efficent, and most importantly answers your needs.
