Pent garden sheds and apex garden sheds can be found on gardens and allotments throughout the World. If you are considering manufacturing your own Pent Garden Shed or Apex Garden Shed, there are a multitude of details that you should consider prior to going ahead.The first thing is to decide what form of garden shed do you want, a pent garden shed or an apex garden shed. Apex garden sheds are those shapes where the roof comes to a point along the center of the shed, while the pent garden shed has a roof that slopes from a high front to a lower back.The Apex garden shed due to its roof shape will have more headroom in the center whilst the pent garden shed has more height at the front. On the pent garden sheds I have built, the windows are situated on the upper front of the shed which means that when you choose this model, it would be wise to put your tools on the high side and keep your tools and any other tools on the lower side. The next step is to choose the materials with which you are going to construct the shed. For the purpose of this guide I will employ a pent garden sheds design. Most materials used to make sheds are, in order of popularity; wood, metal & plastic. Each has their advantages however, my preferred material is wood. The reason I choose wood is that it is readily available and it fits into the garden much better than metal or plastic materials.When choosing whether to employ a softwood or softwood the simple answer is that softwood is much cheaper than hardwood. You must however try to find wood that has been painted as this will help preserve the wood and although I suggest applying a coat of timber paint upon completion, it is impossible to treat the pent gardens sheds floor underneath once it is erected. In addition, if you use a wood that has been tanalised, a method by which preservative is forced into the wood as opposed to painting it on the wood; it will last for 20 years or more with no more than a coat of preservative every couple of years.Another big plus side of using wood is that you can color it to match any landscape features or garden furniture you have, enabling it to blend into your garden. As a result, this will make your garden look more beautiful and natural. The top selling type of wood to use are weather board and cladding types of wood as they are the cheapest while at the same time offering a barrier from the poor weather.To complete your pent garden sheds outer skin off you can use tongue and groove boards to give a more beautiful finish to your shed. As the boards are arranged with the above plank overlapping (this is where the term comes from), water is restricted from entering much better than other designs.To review, making your own pent garden sheds can be a long drawn out process. Although it is rewarding to know you built your shed it saves little money. Buying a already made shed from a trusted supplier has the added bonus of a manufacturer warranty should the shed have any faults. I would suggest browsing sites to decide whether you can find a garden shed to fit your needs.
