Building a new shed

In this video, you’ll find out how to assemble a garden shed. Each stage is broken down into digestible chunks. It starts by explaining what to do if the door isn't pre-hung, how to construct the frame and how to fix the frame to the floor. Next, you’ll hear about the roof, roof felt and fitting windows.

Prepare a concrete base that’s at least 50mm larger than the shed floor. Then before you start building, familiarise yourself with the different components. Assembly instructions may vary from shed to shed so always read them properly.
