Whether you decide to build a garden house from wood, sheet metal or
plastic, it's a good idea to clarify its purpose first. Someone is
building these houses to have a place to put tools. Another wants to
have a garden house, for example, to store garden furniture. Another
motivation can be a place where children (or even adults) can play. In
some cases, garden houses can perform all of these functions, making
them versatile structures that can be used by many gardens.
If the main purpose of the house is to be used in the form of a
"technical room", it is good to think about the internal layout of the
space during construction. Where will you put what type of tools, mower,
garden hose, etc. It is ideal to sketch such an idea in advance, because
even according to the internal arrangement, you will choose the amount
of material for the construction of the garden house.
It is also important to choose the material from which the whole house
will be built. Here it will depend on which parameters are most
important to you. Is it a look? Endurance? Ease of installation? It all
Wooden, sheet metal and plastic garden houses
One of the most popular types of garden houses is definitely the wooden
one. This is mainly due to the fact that it looks very natural in the
garden environment. Aesthetically, it is suitable for its other usual
elements (shrubs, trees) and in general it can be said that it does not
visually disturb the space in any way. If your choice falls on a wooden
house, pay attention not only to the wood you will be building from, but
also to all other and important elements - fasteners, protective
coatings or paint. It is these other elements that will have a major
impact on the appearance, but also the life of the house.
If you don't want to invent the whole project of a wooden garden house
from the beginning, buy already designed houses. This means that you
will not buy individual components, but will immediately buy a set of
products from which you will build it all.
Tin garden houses
If you need a sheet metal house for you, you're at the right place.
Many builders prefer tin houses because they work better with them, they
can be cheaper, and at the same time they are almost maintenance-free.
They are most often used as spaces for storing tools or garden
equipment. And thanks to various coatings, it does not have to look
inappropriate in the garden. However, make sure that the plate is
properly treated to prevent rust from entering. If you protect it enough
with special varnishes, it will last like new much longer.
Plastic garden houses
Thirdly, we will mention plastic garden houses, which are suitable at a
time when you need quick installation, a favorable price and virtually
minimal maintenance. In addition, some of today's plastics are very
hard, so even plastic garden houses have excellent resistance to damage
and various weather conditions (such as heavy rain or snow).
