7 Best Large Wooden Sheds for DIY

Garden sheds offer an excellent solution for outdoor storage. But did you know they can be much more than a mere storage area? This is where large wooden sheds come into their own. In particular, our best large wooden sheds.

Not only are they a perfect solution to clearing out space within your home, but they’re also a great companion for anyone who needs a room where you can work and enjoy your hobbies.

Here at Garden Buildings Direct, we offer some of the best garden sheds that are high-quality and available across three materials — all of which have their unique advantages. One of our customer favourites is our wooden sheds collection.

If you’re planning to purchase a wooden shed—in this article, we’ll explore what we believe to be the best large wooden sheds for DIY all for under £1000.

Why a Wooden Shed?

Unlike metal and plastic sheds, wooden sheds can be easily customised or painted to suit the style of your garden. The only downside is that they can be vulnerable to rot, rustt, and mildew, but these concerns can be comfortably solved by merely applying a wood treatment or preservative. (Plus we use galvanised hinges). Easy peasy!

If you don’t have enough time and resources to treat your wooden shed, then the majority of our large wooden sheds come with the offer of pressure treatment.

  • Pressure-Treatment – This kind of treatment generally involves blasting wood with protective treatment before the timber is stacked and left to dry. This process offers not only maximum penetration but also provides longer-lasting protection than the dip-treating alternative.

Our large wooden shed collections are also available in two different designs:

  • Overlap Wooden Shed – This type of cladding is considered the most traditional and cost-effective choice. Its timber slats are placed atop one another, each one overlapping the next to create a panel. If you don’t need much protection against the elements, then this is the best choice to opt for.
  • Tongue and Groove Wooden Shed – Made from interlocking boards, this type of cladding provides excellent protection against the elements. What’s best about tongue and groove is that it guarantees your shed’s contents will remain dry, irrespective of the weather.
  • A range of roof styles – Including modern pent roofs, classic apex and reverse apex sheds
