Frequently Asked Questions

  • How do I make a bespoke order?

    If you require non-standard or bespoke sizes or finishes, use our bespoke enquiry form. Or send an email to info@brightonbikesheds.co.uk and upload an image or two of the space. Please also include a description of your storage needs, dimensions (WxDxH), and your postcode. If you send a photo of a quick sketch of the layout too that really helps.

    We’ll reply with a free detailed quotation. If you are happy to proceed just email us back to confirm your order and we’ll send you an invoice for 50% of the agreed cost. Once we have received your deposit, your bike shed will be built in our workshop and delivered and installed within 12 weeks (early 2021 delivery/install dates now booking). The balance is due on completion of the installation.

  • What finishes do you offer?

    We have a range of finishes designed to meet most budgets and aesthetic requirements. Our untreated Scottish larch cladding, Pressure Treated European Pine slatted cladding or Pressure Treated European Pine tongue and groove (T&G) all offer great looks, resilience and value. Select the Pine T&G option if you prefer to paint the shed yourself.

    The premium cladding options we offer are Western Red Cedar (WRC), either vertical slatted or T&G. The quality of the Western Red Cedar we use is reflected in the price and in addition to its BS EN 350 Class 2 durability rating it also looks great.

    In our premium range of cladding we also offer painted Kiln Dried Pine tongue and groove (T&G), which includes two coats of microporous paint with a final touch up on site (or pot of paint if a Self-Assembled product). We currently offer a selected range of Sadolin Superdec colours; Asteroid, Atlantic Blue, Black, Obsidian, Sargasso Sea & Volcanic Ash.

  • If I have a bay window can you fit around it?

    We have built many ‘bay’ sheds, which are a five sided version of our Classic. We now offer a Bay Window option in Optional Extras shop so that the additional cost of this option can be seen alongside various Classic sheds.

    If you have a bay in the way of a standard Classic bike shed just send a standard enquiry and we’ll send you our PDF guide on measuring up your bay space.

  • Do you make bin sheds?

    We have built many bin sheds and recycling storage units as add-ons to all our range. We now offer these as options to bolt on. To see prices just add options to your shed in the Shop page, or for an overview see our Optional Extras page.

    There are two designs that work well for bin storage. The first is an open topped unit that hides the bin but still allows for the lid to be freely accessible without fuss. The rest of the unit is clad to match the bike shed and has single or double opening doors. The floor is the existing paving or concrete. This design works for Classic, Slot-in and Vertical sheds and simply bolts on left or right.

    The second design is a ‘Single Roof’ side store added to either left or right of a Classic shed. The roof line is continuous as well as the front and back walls. The floor of the bin part is the existing paving or concrete. There is a trade off in that the bins require accessing while inside the shed or pulled out of the shed (there is approx 200mm space above the bin). However the clean lines of this design make it a very popular option.

    A recycling unit can easily be incorporated into either version and usually consists of 2 or 3 shelves that the boxes slot into lengthways. If you require a or recycling unit, or a variation on the standard just send us an email as a bespoke enquiry.

  • Do you build anything else?

    Yes, so long as it can be built from timber! We build to order bespoke solutions such as planters, herb beds, log stores, vegetable box stores, seating, trellises, pergolas and screens etc., usually as add-ons to our bike sheds, and featuring matching cladding and roofing. We also build bike sheds that are designed to house surf-boards, car boxes, BBQs, tools, mowers, garden furniture… Contact us with your ideas and we’ll be happy to make them a reality!

  • Can you build a narrower or lower version of the Classic (eg 1.9m wide or 1.25m high)?

    The width and height of the Classic are dictated by the thickness of the timbers used in the walls, roof and floor construction. The width by the length of a bike plus wriggle room. The height by a standard bike and the clearance needed above the bike. We use 1.83m as a standard bike length and 1.15m as a benchmark bike height.

    However, if you have a tighter space to fit your shed into (eg <2m wide), or if all of your bikes are 1m or less (all road bikes or kids bikes) then we can shave anything from 50mm to 150mm off the width/height. If you want us to do this just order your Classic online as normal – and then send us a separate covering email requesting that we reduce the width or height by …..mm. There is no extra cost for this small type of alteration as we build to order.
