Please read the instructions completely before attempting to assemble the building. The instructions are intended as a rough guide only and details may vary due to the variety of sizes available.
1. Treat Floor with Preservative if not already done.
2. Lay the floor (A) in its desired position (remember to leave enough space around the building for the roof overhang and maintenance). It is essential the floor is on a solid level base otherwise the building will not fit together properly. If the floor has been supplied in 2 pieces join together by nailing into the joining blocks on one piece of floor.
3. Place back panel (F) in position (the cladding on the bottom overhangs the floor). While your assistant holds the back panel place a plain side (C) on the floor to form a corner. Check that the panels are butted together and are sitting flat on the floor, then screw them together from the inside using two of the hexagon coach-screws provided.
4. Repeat this process for the remaining side panel (B).
5. Fix the small front panel (D) in place in a similar manner. Remember to unlock the door first.
6. Position the front frame (E) into place. Screw into position in the four corners.
7. Place the roof (G) onto the shed. The shed may need pushing into square at this stage to allow the roof panel to drop into place. Before fixing the roof check that the roof is sitting flat on the sides and are level at either end, if not it is likely that floor is not level and will need lifting and packing in one corner, try each one in turn until you find the right one. Push the roof to the back so all the overhang is at the back and the roof is butted up to the front frame (E).
8. Making sure that the shed is square screw the sides to the floor, ensuring that all screws go into a floor joist and not just the floor boards.
9. Secure the roof section by nailing through the roof in the framing on the sides and ends.
10. Unscrew the small pieces of wood from the front and slide a piece of glass to the top of the front. Get a helper to hold this piece and slide the next sheet in below it with two “Z” clips. Make sure that this sheet goes underneath the top one. Screw the piece of wood back into place to hold the glass.
11. Repeat this process to complete the front of the building.
12. Glaze the opening window using the beading and panel pins provided.
13. Glaze the small triangular windows. Place the larger piece in the bottom and hang the smaller piece on top using two “Z” clips. Bead the window in place using panel pins. Repeat this for the other side.
14. Fit the corner strips (J) to cover the ends of the boards on the four corners with 2” nails. The front strips may need trimming.
15. Felt the roof with the two strips provided. Start from the low side making sure that the top piece of felt overlaps the lower one to allow water to run off. Nail the felt at 4” to 5” intervals, along the bottom, top and along the join. Nailing from the middle outwards usually gains a better result. Fold the felt neatly at the ends and nail into the framing.
16. Nail the Fascia Boards (I) to the end of the shed with 2” nails making sure to nail into the framing.
17. Place the bench (M) onto the stops underneath the window. Place the leg underneath the outer edge of the bench in the centre. Nail into the leg and at the outer edges.
18. Treat the outside of the building with a suitable solvent based wood preservative if not already done.
