Size measured in feet

2. Select Treatment

Spray Treated

Treated with a beautiful golden brown spray treatment which colours and protects during transit. Designed to last through shipping and assembly, we do recommend treating the wood after installation to protect it.

Pressure Treated

For increased longevity you can opt for pressure treatment. In a pressurised tank chemical preservatives are forced deep into the wood’s fibres to resist rot or decay. Upgrading to Pressure Treated means you also get an extended 15 year guarantee.

2. Personalise your shed

11mm Tongue and Groove

Our Standard flooring option which provides a durable, solid foundation and underfoot to the building. The 11mm option is ideal for less demanding and frequent usage, suitable for lighter intensity purposes like summer houses and other living spaces containing light furniture. The 11mm tongue and groove timber makes this a solid yet suitable, economical option.

19mm Tongue and Groove

1.7 times thicker than our standard 11mm flooring, our premium floor is the perfect choice for higher intensity usage. The construction uses thick 19mm Tongue and Groove timber, which gives you not only the strength, but better insulation against the cold weather. This specific floor is the perfect option if you’re planning on using the building as an everyday use office, gym or games room with heavy objects.

Mineral felt

Quick and easy to apply, Mineral felt is durable and protects the building against the elements. The mineral felt is also more durable than traditional sand felt, meaning that it does not need to be regularly replaced, making it a long term, cost effective option.

EPDM Roof Covering

EPDM is a rubber based polymer that is fast and easy to install. It is a great alternative to felt and other roofing solutions, It is resistant to ozone and UV radiation while still being weatherproof and less affected by temperature changes. This option provides a more durable covering for your building while giving a stylish black look to the roof.

This garden workshop is the perfect choice for those looking to make the most of their outdoor space. At Garden Buildings Direct, our garden sheds for sale come in a variety of sizes and styles to suit all homes. And the BillyOh Expert makes for the perfect workshop for all your DIY and storage needs.

The BillyOh Expert Apex is an amazing take on the traditional garden shed. The expert apex comes in a wide variety of sizes, all with a robust 11mm floor and roof, with the option to upgrade the floor to 19mm. Smaller sizes are great for uses, such as a bike store or garden tool store, whereas the larger sizes offer many more use cases. The larger sizes of this garden workshop would make excellent spaces for a DIY shed or garden studio.

The option to have a windowed or windowless design allows you to customise your building to suit your exact use case. A windowed design lets a large amount of natural light in, which is fantastic for a workshop, office or even just as a more modern storage solution. The windowless variations offer your more privacy by keeping prying eyes out.

Green mineral roofing felt is also included on this building to increase the products weather resistance and overall lifetime as well as helping to keep your possessions clean and dry.

Spray Treated: Our sheds and summerhouses get a beautiful golden brown spray treatment before leaving the factory in order to preserve the quality of the wood up in unil the delivery. As this only lasts through the transit stage, we do advise treating the wood after installation to protect and preserve it, as well as annual maintenance.

Pressure Treated: For an extra level of protection, you can opt for a pressure treated building which is an effective way of keeping the wood long lasting. This is an extra step in the manufacturing process where the wood is treated in a pressurised tank. Chemical preservatives are forced deep into the wood’s fibres to resist rot, decay and termites. When you upgrade to Pressure Treatment, the guarantee is extended from 10 to 15 years.

Constructed from thick panels which interlock together, tongue and Groove creates a strong and stable structure that is designed to offer protection against the elements. This method of construction provides you with a strong and dependable building which is built to last.

All sheds, excluding overlap, standard summerhouse, playhouses etc are made of 11mm thick cladding.

With the Expert Tongue and Groove Apex Shed an 11mm tongue and groove floor and roof is included but you can upgrade to 19mm to suit more intensive use.

Roof:

11mm: Our standard roof option, this interlocking roof provides a reliable covering for any building. The Tongue and Groove not only gives your building a stronger roof but also a premium look and feel.

Floor:

11mm: Our Standard flooring option which provides a durable, solid foundation and underfoot to the building. The 11mm option is ideal for less demanding and frequent usage, suitable for lighter intensity purposes like summer houses and other living spaces containing light furniture. The 11mm tongue and groove timber makes this a solid yet suitable, economical option.

19mm: A premium floor is the perfect choice for higher intensity usage. The construction uses thick 19mm tongue and groove timber, which gives you not only the strength, but better insulation against the cold weather. This specific floor is the perfect option if you’re planning on using the building as an everyday use office, gym or games room with heavy objects.

All garden buildings should be assembled on a firm and level base. A base will ensure your building has a solid, long-lasting and well-drained foundation.

If you want to build your own base, from a sturdy material such as concrete or flagstones, you can find minimum dimensions for each size of this building in the tech specs. In order to protect your building from moisture, you should leave a 2ft gap around the exterior of your building, so remember to take this into consideration when laying any sort of base.

Our robust and simple to use EcoBase provides you with a firm, long-lasting foundation with suitable drainage for your garden building. It is quick and easy to install through the use of snap connectors that link the grids to each other.

If your building is shorter than 2.5m you should not require planning permission, (unless it’s more than 50% of your garden or will be placed in your front garden). Planning permission rules can vary by area so we would strongly recommend checking your local council rules before purchasing a garden building from us.

We do not offer an installation service on any of our buildings, as they are designed to be easy and simple to assemble. Using the digital assembly instructions included in your order confirmation and with a team of at least 2 people, the handy pre assembled panels mean you will have your BillyOh building up in no time!

Our sheds and summerhouse are delivered in easy to assemble panels. For your convenience the panels are no wider than 4ft so they can be easily maneuverable and fit through a standard doorway. Glazing and any additional wood is delivered in separate, clearly labeled packages.

Your order can be tracked through the account section on our website or by contacting us directly. You will be contacted after your order via your online account, email or text to provide updates on delivery dates.

We offer a pay by finance option on any purchase over the value of £560.

Our simple finance options allow you to spread the cost of your purchase over 24, 36 or 48 months.Read more about our Pay by Finance option here.
