Larch Garden Building Installation

Due to the way the Larch Garden Building kits are sent out, we tend to advise that experienced DIYers or carpenters/builders should tackle the challenge. These are a ‘proper building’ as we describe them. They are a timber structure which can be adjusted and modified to suit your requirements, various modules in larch timber can be added to them such as extensions, walls, framing etc.

A recent customer sent in this picture set of the Larch Pent Garden Building Seven, this is the basic structure and to this walls, doors, windows etc can be added in a variety of materials to create open barns, carport, summerhouses, offices, in fact any structure your require. The Larch Building Structures are a VERY economical alternative to the traditional oak garden building.

It is recommended, as with all timber that you pilot drill your screw holes with a durable, trustworthy power drill.

Once your main frame/body is installed, the next step would be installing and securing the roof purlins, again ensuring that everything beforehand has remained to the required level for the desired pent roof.

If the purlins are nice and level then installing the roof boards should be simple, given that their tongue and groove design allows you to simply slide them together and nail them to secure them. Please note that the use of steel nails is not really recommended for larch as in oak.

In this case, the customer installed a downpipe at the lower end of the pent roof to which a drain pipe will be attached, cutting the required section through the roof board and securing it from above:

Then to finish off the building the customer used EPDM roofing material to cover the roof boards. EPDM is ideal for flat or low pitched roofs due to its durable rubberised material which lasts for years and years. The EPDM is finished off with a metal roof edging trim.

Thank you to the customer who sent these in! They are truly stunning and we hope that you’ll enjoy the Larch Pent Building Seven for many years to come!

Aluminium Veranda

Last year our aluminium verandah’s went down very well with our customers, we only had two pages in the catalogue but the take up was amazing.  This year we have twelve pages and have expanded the range hugely.

Aluminium Garden Canopy

Aluminium Garden Canopy

Made from extremely strong aluminium box section and coated in four standard colours (any colour is also possible).  Any size of length and width is achievable as is an vast array of accessories to convert the basic verandah into a garden room, a carport or simply a covered walk way.

It may be that our summers are becoming so wet and dreary that although we still want to sit outside, do we really want to be wet.  Our new verandah’s offer a perfect solution, economical and durable.

Here are a few more pictures of what is achievable, if you’d like further details please let us know.
