Bespoke Service

Our standard range of sheds and our Optional extras cover almost all bases, spaces and storage requirements – but if you’re looking for something more unique we’re more than happy to accommodate.

We really enjoy designing and building these extra details and they make your bike shed unique to you!

Need some inspiration?

From small add-ons to a standard shed to fully bespoke builds, we’ve got you covered. Here are some examples of things that are most frequently requested.

Side store

A very popular request and as of 2020 it is actually included in our optional extras. Often they are used for hiding unsightly bins and recycling boxes or to store car top boxes, bike carriers, buggies, golf clubs, lawn-mowers, logs, tools, BBQs etc.

The canopy

A small extension to the roof which can also include a deck and connected posts. These are often added to our vertical sheds to provide shelter from the rain when carrying out bike repairs and maintenance, but can also be used for log storage, BBQ storage, etc.

Slatted fences

We are often asked to clad sheds in slatted timber battens and then extend the cladding along the top of a wall or across a fence to match the shed. Not strictly a bespoke detail of the shed itself but a very popular request.

Non-standard cladding

Sometimes non-standard cladding/roofing is requested. Such as cedar shingles for the roof or a burnt wood cladding option, where our UK larch is charred and oiled as with Japanese wood preservation technique Yaki Sugi.

Planter roof

This is where the roof is replaced with a deep planter suitable for herbs, or deeper rooting plants. The resulting Classic shed is quite tall (1.6m), but is a good solution in a back garden, and looks spectacular with a full bloom or crop of vegetables.

Built-in bike sheds

When space is really tight we sometimes construct a shed from scratch on site, building in the elements of the bike shed between brick walls, or around the side of a bay. This is perhaps the ultimate in bespoke: the fully made to measure solution!

What does it cost?

We don’t have price list for our bespoke service, but we try and keep our bespoke services affordable and we simply charge pro-rata for additional materials and time.

Send us as much information as possible on your bespoke idea and we’ll send you a fully itemised quote.
