Housing Association Shed

A Leicestershire based housing association, has given Devon Garden Sheds an opportunity to supply and install some garden sheds for them in the Devonshire area. DGS recently installed this great looking shed in the Babbacombe area of Torquay, it has replaced a very old and tired wooden shed that the residents couldn't make use of any more as it had collapsed at the back due to the rot. Now the residents can make full use of this 10ft x 8ft Shiplap Apex Shed for all their garden needs.

Large Workshop for Birse Civils flood risk management scheme

Devon Garden Sheds was contacted by Birse Civils who asked us if we could supply and fit a 8m x 3.5m Tanalised Shiplap Workshop with Corrugated Metal Roof, this was a fantastic opportunity for Devon Garden Sheds to show that we can build and Install top quality garden sheds. Birse Civils needed us to supply them with this shed as they had to dismantle an old one that was in its place, the reason for this is that they have built a flood defence along the River Culm in Stoke Canon, where many homes and a school were affected by the rising water levels, we are very please with the finished product that we produced and we hope that the new owner of the workshop gets many years use out of this fabulous new dry work space.

New Wooden Shed This Autumn

With Fantastic offers on Wooden Sheds, Devon Garden Sheds offer you a perfect opportunity to get outside this autumn and erect a quality Wooden Shed, and then sit back and enjoy a well earned rest maybe even inside it! Of course if you don’t want to erect your wooden shed yourself you can contact us and take advantage of our Installation Service (within Devon only) and have your brand new wooden shed erected for you!

When buying a Wooden Shed, you need to be sure to provide a firm and level base on which to build your garden building. A base which is neither firm nor level is likely to cause structural problems with your building in the future, resulting in doors and windows that have difficulty opening and closing.

An easy solution to this problem is the Portable Base which is a pressure-treated wooden frame supplied specifically for the size of your garden building, and once constructed can easily be laid onto softer ground such as lawn or soil. For more information on the Portable Base please contact us.

Another probem that people often find once they have purchased a new shed, is that they require a light inside but have no way of getting main electicicty to there new garden building, well here at DGS we offer a range of Solar Powered Lighting kits that addresses the problem of illuminating remote areas where no mains power exists.

Exempt from Part P of the Building regulations, Solar Mate can be easily and safely installed by anyone. Solar Mate’s solar panel will collect enough energy during the course of the day (even in Britain) to power its bulb for between 5 and 7 hours every day of the year (5 hours in the winter – 7 hours for the rest for the year).

Sheds Club

                                         Supported By DGS 
THE garden shed has become a safe haven for many a man over the years, and one Brixham man, in particular, is keen to see that tradition live on. Gary Payne, of Pillar Avenue, is looking to set up a Men's Sheds Group, an informal social group for like-minded individuals tired of getting under their wife's feet. "I believe some men go down the pub with half a pint of bitter and sit there all day. That's all fine if that's what you want to do," he said. "But I would like to get a group of men together from across the Bay and set up a Men's Sheds Group, to get them out of the house and active."
A similar group, created to get men out of the house and doing something active and creative, was recently set up in Exeter and continues to go from strength to strength. "I did some research and found that the idea seems to be an Australian operation," explains Gary. "They have load of the groups out there but there are only four registered in the UK, one of which is in Exeter. "Not many at al when you consider how many men there must be at home looking for something to do." It's still early days for the Torbay faction of Men's Sheds, and Gary is eager to hear from anyone who might be interested in getting he group off the ground. "I'm still looking for the premises at the moment. It hasn't got to be a shed; it could be a garage, a store room or a workshop, just somewhere a group of men can go and have a chat and a cup of coffee. We'll get some tools in there and then we can work on any broken furniture from home, or any repainting that needs doing. Anything that needs doing, we will attempt it."
And Gary isn't ruling out women from the roost either. "I know the idea is a club just for men, but I disagree with that. I know some lady mechanics who are brilliant, and could teach the men a thing or two. If any ladies do come along, they will be made welcome. To get involved with Torbay Men's Sheds Group, please contact Gary on 01803 883 794.
Devon Garden Sheds is a full supporter of this group, and we will bring you any updates that we get from Gary. Finally from all the team here at DGS we would like to wish Gary and all the other group members all the best in creating a successful Torbay Men's Sheds Group.
