The colour samples shown should be used as a rough guide only.

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.
Tools required: Drill, 8mm wood drill bit, hammer, sharp knife, 13mm spanner/wrench/ socket.
1. Lay floor panel(s) (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 otherwise the building will not fit together properly and the door may not fit flush. If supplied in sections join the floor panels together by nailing into the joining blocks on one piece of the floor.
2. Position the back panel (C) on the back edge of the floor, the lip on the bottom overhangs the floor. While your assistant holds this panel place an end panel (D/E) on the floor to form a corner. Check that the walls are sitting flat on the floor and the panels are butted together, screw them together from the inside using two of the hexagon head coach screws provided.
3. Larger buildings may have back panels in two or three sections. If so having fixed one back section to one sloping side section, butt-up second back section to first back section end to end. Ensure top edges of both back panels are level. Bolt together using the coach bolts provided.
4. Select the other end panel (D/E) and place on the floor, screw to the back panel as before with two coach screws, again making sure the sections are flat on the floor.
5. Position and fix front section(s) (B) with doors in the same way as points 2, 3 and 4. Remember to remove the key from the inside of the door and unlock the door first.
6. All four sides are now fixed and assembled. Next, select roof section (F) and place on top of walls. (If the roof is in 2 or more sections, each section needs to be butted-up to another section). One end of the roof is closed in, this end goes to the low side of the shed. Screw the roof sections together. Fix the filler strip (I) approx 45mm wide to the underneath of the roof from the outside at the front and back by nailing into the joists using 40mm nails. Larger buildings may be supplied with notched roof purlins to support the roof.
7. Check that the roof is sitting flat with the ends, 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. Check the roof overhang is equal all the way round then secure the roof by nailing from underneath through the front and back panel into the roof framing, and also by nailing through the roof boards into the ends using 50mm nails.
8. Check that all walls are sitting flat on the floor. Fix the panels to the floor using two long nails per panel, ensuring that you nail into a floor joist (follow the lines of nails in the floor to locate the joists).
9. Nail corner fillets (I) into each outside corner. Tall fillets for high corners and short fillets for short corners using 2” galvanised nails.
10. Nail joining/cover strips (J) on front and back where panels meet using 2” galvanised nails.
11. ALWAYS START LAYING FELT ON LOWER PART OF ROOF. Stretch first piece of felt along lower part of roof, allowing enough felt to overhang the roof on each end and long edge so that it will cover roof edges when folded over by approximately 75mm. Secure with a few evenly spaced nails along the upper edge then fold over and nail every 100-150mm along the edge into the strip on the roof working from the middle outwards. Lay another strip of felt onto the roof allowing felt to overhang each end but also to partially overlap 1st piece of felt on long edge by 100-150mm.
12. Nail in felt nails approximately 100-150mm from edge of seam/overlap of felt and on low edge as before.
13. Fold felt on each corner. Offer up a long fascia/barge board (H) to high side and nail to the edge of roof framing using 2” galvanised nails. Fascia/barge board should be approximately 5mm higher than level of felt.
14. Attach both short fascias/barge boards (H) to each end of roof in the same way as Point 13.
15. Fold felt over long, low edge of roof, using clout/felt nails, nail felt to roof edge approximately 3” apart. (Low long edge does not have a facia/barge board as water needs to clear roof un-inhibited).
16. Glaze the building from the outside using the beading provided (either in the trim pack or pre fitted in the window). DO NOT push the beading too tight against the glass as this will cause it to crack.
