The switch pent is one of our most adaptable sheds. The ability to choose the door and window positioning allows this building to fit comfortably any garden. With the large range of sizes, you can be sure to find one that will suit your storage needs. As this is a garden storage shed, the option for windowed or windowless is down to you. The windowless option provides you with privacy, while the windowed option fills your shed with natural light, perfect for a workshop or home office.
Pent Design Roof Style
A pent shed is a fantastic option for a modern space. Pent roof sheds work work amazingly as a bike store or BBQ store, leaving you more usable space in your house or garden. The modern silhouette of this type of roof isn't just aesthetically-pleasing, though. It also allows for suitable drainage to the back of the pent design. The Switch also comes with protective green mineral roof felt as standard.
External Cladding Types - Tongue and Groove Cladding
All sizes of this building come with everything you need included, making assembly quicker and easier. The 11mm tongue and groove floor, roof and walls provide you with robust construction and weather-resistant building. The included roofing felt increases this weatherproofing further, protecting your building into the future.
Tongue and groove cladding used for the walls offers structural rigidity as well as acting as a weather-resistant barrier between your contents and the elements. A durable tongue & groove floor & roof also utilises these groove interlocking boards to form a tight seal against water ingress.
Garden Storage Sheds
At Garden Buildings Direct, we storage sheds in a range of sizes for use as anything from a tool store to a small home office. The Switch is a windowed garden building that will help you clear up your outdoor space while making the most of garden sheds with the natural light afforded by the windows. The wide-opening double doors allow for easy access and also support a quality security lock (available as an optional extra).
The BillyOh Switch comes pressure-treated as standard to cut down on maintenance. You may find yourself not having to re-treat your wood for the duration of your 15-year guarantee.
Installation Service and Assembly
We don't offer an installation service & assembly service on our BillyOh buildings. Instead, we provide you with comprehensive assembly instructions and pre-measured and cut panels that are designed by our expert craftsmen to fit perfectly and easily together.
We do recommend that any garden building is built on a level base. Use a solid foundation like a concrete base or a fast-fill gravel and plastic Ecobase available at checkout. We also offer assembly kits for those who don't own the basic tools required to assemble the BillyOh Switch.
The Switch shed falls under 'permitted development' and won't require planning permission, as:
- It's single-storey
- Long as it isn't intended for permanent residential use
- It doesn't exceed a max eaves height of 2.5m
- It doesn't exceed an overall height of 4m (dual-pitched roof like an apex or -reverse apex) or 3m (any other type of roof, like a pent)
- Long as it doesn't take up more than 50% of your garden area
- It isn't build past the front wall of your house
You can still check planning permission as per your local council rules as they may vary area to area.
Quality Timber and Guarantees
Our tongue and groove sheds come with a 10-year guarantee against rot, insect infestation, and decay. But with even higher quality products like our BillyOh Switch which are pressure treated we can offer a 15 year guarantee protecting your building against rot.
