Although our wooden sheds have a floor, we still recommend they are built on a suitable, solid and level base in your garden. This can be a concrete base, patio or a specialist shed base – whichever you prefer.
- Concrete Concrete bases are probably best prepared by a professional, but they do offer a solid, level and permanent base for your shed. Make sure your concrete base is completely flat and level for best results.
- Patio Your wooden shed can be placed on an existing patio, or you can lay a new one especially for it. Unless you are quite handy in the garden, laying a new patio is probably best done by a professional, but as long as it's level, it will do.
- Portabase The Portabase is a hassle-free alternative to building a concrete or slab base. It's made from timber and is easy to assemble by just one or two people, but best of all it does not leave a permanent feature in your garden. The Portabase features spikes on each corner, allowing it to be hammered into the ground for a sturdy base. Top tip: Lay plastic beneath your Portabase and fill with pea gravel to aid drainage and stop anything growing through and into your shed.
- Ecobase Specifically designed to provide a firm, durable and well-drained platform for garden buildings, the Ecobase is the ultimate base for your new shed. Quick and easy to install, the grids are lightweight and reuseable, and can be cut to size easily using a handsaw.
The biggest of the Oxford Summer Houses, the 8’x7’ offers greater depth for more storage options. The apex roof style also allows for an area to hang items, providing more floorspace. 12mm tongue and groove cladding interlocks for strength, reliability, durability and it keeps out the rain.
The half-glazed double doors at the front of the summer house and two other windows let in a good amount of light and warmth. The glazing material for the windows and doors is styrene; a much safer alternative to glass. The highlight of this summer house is the veranda front, adding that extra bit of style and improving the appearance of any garden. For greater security, a rim lock is also included for when you’re not using the summer house.
