    The strength and security of all of our workshops frequently positions them as the range of choice for customers looking for a strong and durable building in which to carry out work projects, store large-scale items or use for a hobby.

    The optimum ceiling height of the classic pitched roof combined with its visual charm and elegance creates the perfect fusion of functionality and attractive styling.  The traditional apex design also means that rain water runs off the roof efficiently, dramatically reducing the risk of internal water damage and further protecting your equipment inside.

    Made from the very finest materials including superior Swedish timber you can be assured that your workshop will be fit for purpose and built to last.  It will be individually handcrafted at our on-site factory in Cheshire by our in-house team with a level of craftsmanship and care that is second to none.

    With a range of fully customisable features such as additional shelving and workbenches, optional window boxes and the choice of single or double doors, your workshop can be built to suit your specific needs and preferences and we will personally oversee its creation down to the very last detail.

    Our apex roof workshops have been commissioned by our customers for a wide range of uses including as motorbike stores, craft rooms, studios and for machine work. Whatever you have in mind, we will work closely with you on the design and functionality of your workshop to ensure that it fulfils all your requirements and more than meets your expectations.

      What our customers think

      "I have recently had a very large garden building from Olympian Garden Buildings, they are a very good company to deal with and everything is checked over and over to make sure it's specific to you. The build quality is excellent it went up in two days ,I absolutely love it and use it every day ,if it's raining I take my coffee out there if it's sunny I take the prosecco ,we have already hosted several parties in there, it’s great it's themed with a seaside theme and we call it the Beach house it's my happy place. I would recommended Olympian for their professional dealings from start to finish it was faultless, there are company's offering cheaper but not the quality of Olympian. "

      Jenny Meakin

      "Amazing customer services and always got back to us, love the gazebo it was going to be for an outdoor kitchen but decided to put some blinds on and use for the hot tub which is great.
      "

      Peter Cass

      "We have a Alderley summerhouse and a large cedar build annexe comprising of a lounge bedroom and shower room from Olympian. First class service from beginning to end. The designing of the cedar build in particular meant a careful attention to detail, with a high end finish and design changes along the way, carefully managed in a professional manner by Nick and the team.

      The construction took a little over a month to create the build and Ian / Connor were precise and professional, displaying expertise craftmanship throughout.

      We recommend Olympian to everyone and could not be happier with our choice."

      Mr and Mrs Woods

      "Thrilled with my new summerhouse. Far exceeded expectations. Every single member of staff I dealt with have been first class, truly excellent customer service. Cannot recommend highly enough. Thank you all for a brilliant job."

      Janet Allman

      "We have just had a 5m x 3m Garden office built on site by Olympian Garden Buildings and the whole job, from design to build was done very professionally and with minimum fuss and inconvenience. The team of craftsmen; builders, plasterers, electricians worked seamlessly to complete the project on time and the organisation behind the scenes was impressive. Nick was always available to assist with help and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this company to others thinking of having an office built in the garden"
