From man caves and lady caves to play rooms and beach huts – the humble garden shed has become so much more since lockdowns, and home working has meant we are spending more time at home than ever.
While the price of timber was eye-watering between lockdowns and is still fluctuating, Elfords Sheds at Oving Road, Chichester, is passing on the current drop in prices to customers who order sheds during August.
Beach huts, play rooms and workshops
If you take a stroll along the beach at the Witterings this summer, or visit Felpham or Hayling Island along the coast, you will see some of Elfords Sheds’ colourful creations standing strong against the elements while being enjoyed by the families who own them.
Or in many back gardens, the firm’s talented team has built quality bespoke sheds for all manner of uses.
Need more family room or always wanted some private space of your own? Choose from a range of Elfords Sheds’ ‘workshops’ and they can adapt yours with partitions for work and storage areas, with as many doors and windows as you like. They can even make them the perfect size to suit you.
Top tip and quality craftsmanship
Tony Harris, director of the family-run business which was established 36 years ago, said: “If you want a home office, my top tip is that the Surrey Workshop is the model for you, as it has plenty of doors and windows.
“Every shed we build is made to order and nothing is off the shelf. We don’t claim to be the cheapest but we are proud to offer the best value-for-money buildings. By using the highest quality materials and careful construction methods, and with a free delivery and free erecting service in our coverage area, our customers agree.”
He added: “As timber prices are lower at the moment, we want to pass on that saving so that our customers can afford the shed they always wanted.”
Elfords Sheds has manufactured over 50,000 buildings from its site on the Ben Turner Industrial Estate, including summerhouses, potting sheds and garages. When looked after correctly, their quality products can last as long as 30 years.
