Premium Quality Buildings

Handmade Timber Garden Buildings

Our Premium Heavy Duty Sheds Usually Speak for themselves, but here are a few reasons why we are fast becoming the best sheds in the UK.

Pressure Treated Scandanavian Timber
All sheds come with an internal and external 10 year anti-rot guarantee.
Box Profile Metal Roof
Box profile is industrial strength as opposed to corrugated. Box profile is the sheeting you would find on industrial units and ours is always in a neutral slate grey colour.
Planed 23.5 Shiplap Boards
We use premium 23.5 shiplap timber boards that are planed down to around 19-20mm thick. You wont find better quality sheds anywhere else.
Thick Framing
75mm by 36mm framing throughout the build, this is double the thickness of any of our competitors.
Internal Breathable Membrane
All sheds include an internal membrane that allows the building the breath, unlike plastic.
Toughened Acrylic Windows
This material comes as standard and adds to the safety of each shed because it is 17 times stronger than glass.
Galvanised Nails
We use hot-dipped galvanised nails and screws in every single shed, this means it will not rust. The sheds can also be disassembled easily if ever needed to.

MCD Garden Sheds in Detail

Pressure Treated Timber

The shiplap boards we use are 23.5mm thick, with a planed finish. Normally the shiplap used by most other sellers is only 12/13mm and a small few might use 18mm. Also our shiplap board are interlocking board and not t&g (tongue & groove). 12/13mm boards are always t&g as they are not strong enough to interlock. Our boards are very strong and we also designed a rounded underneath edge for water to run off. The frame on all the garden sheds are 36x75mm throughout (floor, all panels, roof). This is pretty much unrivalled, never really seen anyone else to do this. As a result our sheds are definitely the strongest on the market. 

Timber Thickness

Scandinavian timber is a lot different from native UK/Irish timber in terms of it’s quality & strength. Local timber is a far lower quality because it’s younger (generally 3-5 years as opposed to a min 15 years from Scandinavian), it’s therefore very soft (which means it will rot quite quickly, it’s like a sponge!!) + there are a large amount of knots in native timber which obviously weaken the timber and garden sheds. All our timber is all planed again throughout (in the sawmill) it means that the timber is smooth. This is not just good for handling purposes but also because it’s smooth it will not absorb water into it unlike rough timer will. Rough timber as mentioned above will act like a sponge and absorb moisture/rain water etc. whereas the rain water will usually just run off the planed shiplap boards.

Metal Roof

The roofing on all of our sheds are box-profile metal. Box profile is industrial strength as opposed to corrugated steel, etc. Box profile is the sheeting you would find on industrial units and ours is always in a slate grey colour. We also fit a metal ridge cap on the very top of all garden sheds and sheets & ridges are screwed down with 38mm roofing screws. Note: majority of garden sheds on the Irish market have mineral felt roofs. Felt is actually an underlay material and therefore is only a temporary material with a limited lifespan when exposed in the elements. Generally it will wear and tear allowing water to get into the timber in the shed. Once water gets into the shed, no matter how good the shed is, it will now rot!

Acrylic Windows

The windows on all of our sheds are acrylic. Acrylic is stronger (x17 times), clearer and safer than glass, also unlike perspex (not to be confused with) it doesn’t discolour. Generally on sheds, the window size is 2ft square, however we can do different sizes and some models might have a different size (i.e. 6ft wide chalets & lodges). Doors with windows in them are also made using acrylic and we can do varies designs and custom builds. Our garden sheds come with one or two windows as standard, if you require more windows please contact us for a bespoke quote.

Internal Breathable Membrane

The interior of all of our garden sheds (roof and sidewalls) are all lined with a breathable membrane to protect from damp & condensation. Most of garden sheds are not lined at all and sometimes if you read the small print on shed brochures you will read that they are not suitable for storage purposes! Other sellers that may line the sheds, usually charge extra plus the lining is actually plastic and this in fact makes the shed sweat more, resulting in damp & rot. Our lining is white in colour and it looks good & keeps the sheds bright inside.

Galvanised Nails and Screws

All shed panels are nailed in the workshop using coil nail guns and most importantly using Hot-Dipped Galvanised Nails. This means the nails are properly galvanised as opposed to coated or zinc coated galvanised nails, or nails not even galvanised at all. Those inferior nails will ultimately leave streak marks on the shed panels, this is because they are rusting which means the the timber will generally then rot or crack around the rusting nails. We use 300mm Tee Hinges on all doors and all sheds are supplied with a lockable pad-bolt. On assembly, the sheds will be screwed together (5.0x70mm wood screws). The sheds can be disassembled (easily) if ever needed to. Sheds that are nailed are very difficult to disassemble and re-erect as the timbers get damaged when taking the panels apart and rarely go back in one piece.
