    Apex, Pent, or Heavy- Duty: Understanding And Selecting The Right Garden Shed For You

    Here at Olympian Garden Buildings, we know that the right garden shed can transform your outdoor space. It might sound grandiose, but it’s true – a beautiful, freestanding structure with a practical purpose is a game-changer for those with outdoor space.  Created to the very highest standards of quality and individually customisable to your tastes, our garden sheds let you maximise your garden space however you like.

    Apex, Pent, or Heavy- Duty: Understanding And Selecting The Right Garden Shed For You

    Sleek yet functional, garden sheds from Olympian are the ultimate last word in both style and comfort – and designed to impress. 

    Offering neat storage and optimal organisation, our range of garden sheds is able to offer you a practical workspace that you can customise for size, layout, and additional features. We pride ourselves on our ability to offer a space created entirely and uniquely for you, so why not come and ask about creating your garden shed with our fully bespoke service? 

    We’ve created an overview of our best-selling sheds and their features, to find which garden shed is your perfect fit. Read more: 

    Apex Shed

    A traditional, timeless staple, the apex garden shed is the true pinnacle of classic, beautiful shed design. As the name suggests, the apex shed has an attractive ‘apex’ roof design, with a tapered high ceiling. A great choice for those who want to use their garden shed for practical manual work, these higher walls and ceilings allow a greater degree of space for moving and maneuvering. Available in Standard, Large, and Heavy-Duty forms, the apex shed allows the perfect amount of room for those who require a greater storage space for large tools or bulky equipment. 

    Pent Shed

    For customers who prefer a sleeker, smaller design, the pent shed is a stylish alternative to the apex shed. Defined by a single, sloping roof, the pent shed is a neat and space-efficient solution to the problem of a small garden area. This model’s attractive, modern shed design often works for people who like a more contemporary look for their outside space. 

    Sound like you? Why not enquire about our pent sheds today! 

    The standard pent shed offers a seamless blend to its surroundings, whether a fence, a hedge, or an outdoor wall, providing a functional space for storage of smaller items such as bikes, tools, or general garden equipment. A similar option for maximising space can be found in our range of Alleyway sheds. A clever and compact solution to smaller size requirements, alleyway sheds offer a smart way to maximise space which is usually left unused areas at the side of a house or garage, without compromising on your shed’s quality or design. 

    Heavy-Duty Shed

    Our heavy-duty shed range takes on the challenge of providing quality support and storage for your space needs, whilst retaining the style and elegance you associate with Olympian Garden Buildings. Available in Apex, Security, and Pent styles, our heavy-duty sheds are perfect for storing larger items, whilst our security range ensures the safety of your more valuable and larger equipment, like motorbikes and ride-on mowers. The ideal way to store those bulkier or higher-value items, our Heavy-Duty Sheds are a companion for life. Learn more!

      What our customers think

      "Outstanding service provided by a team that take great pride in their product and rightly so.
      The security device fitted by Olympian managed to thwart my local burglar, it really is a quality piece of kit!!
      I have the security device fitted to both the workshops I have purchased from Olympian. The sheds were a great investment, protecting them with the security pack proved another worthwhile investment.
      Well done Olympian and thank you.
      Absolutely FANTASTIC!!!"

      David Holbrook

      "I love my 10ft x 7ft Cheshire Studio. I'm looking forward to painting it next year like the one on display. I have a sofa and electricity, just waiting on blinds this week. I'm so pleased I ordered from Olympian Garden Buildings instead of ordering online. The quality of the summerhouse is fantastic. The service was also brilliant from start to finish. A contractor from Olympian also did my concrete base which was half the price than the 4 quotes I'd received previously! I would definitely recommend Olympian Garden Buildings to anybody looking for a summerhouse."

      Nicola Foster

      "We had an insulated Alderley installed in our garden last week. We would like to say a huge thank you to the team of four (team leader Chris, Chris, Kris, and Nico) who battled with the access to our garden through our neighbours garden. The team were hard working, polite and made time to chat about the installation. We are really pleased with the quality of the build and the installation. This is the second building we have bought from Olympian and would recommend them to friends and family. Thank you."

      L Smith

      "Fantastic service and professional installation of our new Summer House.
      The weather was awful, but the installers worked tirelessly to complete it to an excellent standard. From both Sales to after service the experience has been excellent. Would highly recommend.

      Alison Taylor

      "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."
