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 large variety of sizes and models available.
1. Lay the floor panel (A) in the desired position. Remember to leave enough space around the building for the roof overhang and future maintenance. The base must be solid, flat and level.
2. Position the back gable end section (E) on the back edge of the floor. The lip on the bottom overhangs the floor.
3. Offer up a side wall panel (C) and screw through the gable into the side from the inside using two of the screws provided.
4. Offer up the other side wall (B) and screw in a similar fashion.
5. Offer up the door gable end (D) and screw the sides together as before.
6. Place roof panels (F) onto the shed so that the overhang meets at the apex. (Nail the roof truss in place if supplied – subject to shed size).
7. Check that the roof is sitting square on the shed. If it is not then it is likely that your base is not level and the shed will need lifting at one corner with packing to square up the roof before continuing.
8. With the roof square check that all the walls are sitting flat on the base. Screw the walls to the base using at least two screws per panel, ensuring that you screw into a floor joist; follow the lines of nails already in the floor to see where the joists are.
9. Screw the roof sections together, then secure by nailing through the roof into the framing of the walls using nails.
10. Felt the roof using the small clout nails. Start with a wide piece of felt and place it on the roof so that it overhangs both ends and the bottom rail. Secure it with three evenly placed nails along the upper edge and a nail every four to five inches along the bottom rail. Repeat this for the other wide piece of felt. Place the ridge felt (narrow piece) along the top of the shed and nail into place from the centre outwards every four to five inches. Fold the ends of the felt and nail into the end of the framing. 6 x 4 sheds do not need a ridge felt as the wide pieces overlap. The uppermost piece should be nailed as per the ridge felt.
11. Fix the barge boards (I) to the gable ends of the roof using 2” nails to cover the folded felt. Nail on the diamond finales.
12. Fix the corner strips (J) (long strips) to the corners of the shed with three 2” nails.
13. Glaze the building from the outside (inside on Budget models) using the beading provided. Nail with two 2” nails on overlap sheds and two ovals on T & G shiplap sheds. DO NOT push the beading too tight against the glass as this will cause it to crack. Some models are glazed using oval nails only.
