Timber Building Base Information
It is essential that all garden buildings are assembled on a firm and level base, constructed from an appropriate, durable material. Without the correct base, buildings can be very difficult to assemble.
This could lead to the future deterioration of the product such as doors dropping out of alignment becoming difficult to operate, or the source of water leakage. Assembling a garden building on an incorrect base is also likely to invalidate any guarantee. Remember not to place the base too close to any walls or fences as there may be a slight overhang on the roof.
Placing the base next to trees or large bushes could also become a problem from overhanging branches and contact through growth in the future. Make sure the base position allows access around each side of the garden building to apply wood treatments or preservatives.
It is strongly advised that you build your base slightly larger than the dimensions of the garden building (add approx 30-40mm to each side).
