These lean to sheds are a great addition to any home. By building this shed off the side of the house, over the side passage and utilizing this space. Rather than taking up premier space in the main garden, like conventional garden sheds for sale do. These sheds are built to look great and last many years
This lean to shed uses standard concrete fence posts and gravel boards as normal between neighbors, except the light panels have been replaced with 6 x 2 treated timber, as added security. This also finishes the divide very neatly for both parties.
The polycarbonate roof covering is strong and clear, letting in plenty of light to the area. This polycarbonate sheeting is also uv protected with a ten year guarantee, which prevents yellowing, not like other pvc products. All accessories also accompany this roof to hold it down firm and tidy. Gutters fitted to carry water to the closest drain.
This is the view of the storage shed from the front of the house. The black side gate is existing and was realigned to suit the new roof line. The pitch of the roof was determined by the height of the waste piping on the side of the house. The new section of tongue and groove cladding matches the existing as best as possible.
This is the back of the side passage shed, with new door and gutter down pipe running across the top, making its way to the drain. The stud wall has been built on concrete block with a damp course. Protecting the timber from damp and rain splash. All the material used throughout this build is pressure treated timber, which protects the structure from rot and insect attack. The timber can be stained, varnished or painted if you wish, but is not necessary for the first couple of years.
Beneath the gutter of this lean to roof, felt has been torched on to protect this area from the small amount of rain which may penetrate this area. Preventing any seepage into the structure.
The area before work began. The fence with the concrete posts which were used to support uprights for the roof.
The 2 x 6 treatd timbers being fitted between concrete posts. A silicone seal was also run along each board..
This is the finished garden shed on the inside. This makes for a very stylish shed. Far superior to the conventional garden sheds for sale.
