We recommend staining your timber Shed, Gazebo or Cubby, to protect it from the weather and prevent the timber from greying off over time. 2 coats of a good quality stain will enhance the colour of the cedar, providing a protective coating to keep your shed looking fantastic! We also recommend painting the timbers of the Gazebo.

The ideal Shed base is a leveled and compacted crushed rock base. The base should be leveled to a spirit level, firm, and slightly higher than the surrounding ground, so it is well drained. This provides for a good firm base to place the timber floor. The floors have treated pine bearers for in contact with the ground. Alternatively, a concrete slab can be constructed instead of a timber floor. For sloping sites, a timber sub-floor with stumps can be constructed.

We have a large range under 10m² that do not normally require a Building Permit, however we suggest you check with your local Council regarding Planning or Building Permit requirements. A Building over 10m² will require* a Building Permit. Specification documentation can be supplied if a Building Permit is required. *Check with local council

Our sheds and workshops have a solid plywood door with a grooved face, heavy duty hinges and optional chrome lockset. The door is weatherproof. Our studios have a 4 paneled ‘house type’ door with locking handle.

Structural grade Tongue & Groove Particleboard flooring is mostly used. On some sizes, structural plywood flooring is used. Treated Pine bearers are used where a freestanding floor is required, directly onto the ground. Floors should be anchored to the ground with anchor brackets available. A sub-floor including stumps is available for sloping sites or for extra ground clearance. A concrete slab is also an option if required.

Our wall panels include Protectafoil between the framing and cedar weatherboards. This forms a breathable protective barrier to stop condensation or moisture penetrating the walls, giving you a superior product. Protectafoil is available in shed roofs as an option.

The internal framing of our buildings are constructed from locally produced kiln dried pine, structurally graded and visually checked to ensure the highest quality materials are used in our buildings. The bottom wall plate is treated pine (Arsenic free!) for longevity.

Our garden buildings are constructed in pre-made panels which are precision built in our factory and simply bolt together. Hardware and instructions are provided to give you an effective and simple construction method that forms a rigid and robust structure. For a handyman to assemble an average size Garden Shed, allow 2-4 hours for installation. A level site is essential. Alternatively, you may choose to use our professional installation service.

Cedar is naturally beautiful and durable timber. It has high insulating value, its own natural oils and a delightful aroma which give this unique species natural resistance to rot and insect attacks – without any added chemicals! Cedar is grown and harvested through Environmentally responsible planning and re-forestation programs to ensure Forests for the future and timber supply in perpetuity.

The Cedar weatherboards that Cedar Shed use, are kiln dried bevel cut boards that are less susceptible to splitting than treated timber boards.
