The Switch offers a secure space for things like outdoor bike storage or a garden tool shed or even a bright open garden room that could be used as a workshop with space for a workbench and shelving.

An apex shed is a fantastic option for a classic style. And the wooden switch has the traditional design of an apex roof. This building has increased head height, making your possessions more accessible and leaving you more usable space in your house or garden.

All sizes of this building come with everything you need included, making assembly quicker and easier.

Wooden Garden Workshops and Storage Sheds

Our BillyOh range or wooden garden sheds are designed to help you make the most of your outdoor space. So whether it's for a garden workshop, bike storage, or just somewhere t put the lawn mower, the Switch's wide-opening double doors allow for easy access and frequent usage.

Wide Range of Size Options

Our extensive range also features popular sizes like our 8x6 wooden shed and larger models to suit all needs. The Switch also comes with optional extras like windowless (for extra security) or windowed options with adaptable configuration for full control of your door and window placement.

Wooden Apex Shed - Roof Style and Height

Any outdoor building with an apex roof will feature a slight roof overhang which allows for runoff and suitable drainage as well as a traditional and attractive appearance. Add to that the green mineral roof felt included in the price, and you've got a highly weather-resistant storage shed.

The eaves height and ridge height of the wooden Switch are also such that you shouldn't require planning permission so long as it doesn't take up more than 50% of your garden, or is built past the front wall of your house.

External Cladding Types

The external cladding is compromised of weather-resistant and sturdy interlocking tongue and groove boards. Tongue and groove timber utilises a seamless join that creates a tight seal against water ingress.

Pressure Treated Tongue & Groove Cladding

And with pressure treatment as standard, we'll help to protect your building from moisture damage from the outset. Pressure timber treatment makes the Switch weather resistant for the ups and downs of British weather and even harsh weather conditions.

Pressure Treatment is an effective way of keeping the building long lasting. This is an extra step in the construction process where the wood is treated in a pressurised tank. Chemical preservatives are forced deep into the wood’s fibres to resist rot, decay and termites. When you upgrade to Pressure Treatment, the guarantee is extended from 10 to 15 years.

This shed comes with 11mm tongue and groove floor and roof as standard but you can upgrade to 19mm to suit more intensive use.


11mm: Our standard roof option, this interlocking roof provides a reliable covering for any building. The Tongue and Groove not only gives your building a stronger roof but also a premium look and feel.


11mm: Our Standard flooring option which provides a durable, solid foundation and underfoot to the building. The 11mm option is ideal for less demanding and frequent usage, suitable for lighter intensity purposes like summer houses and other living spaces containing light furniture. The 11mm tongue and groove timber makes this a solid yet suitable, economical option.

Single Glazing: Crafted from shatter-resistant plastic (SAN) and suitable for seasonal use. SAN is used for its UV properties and the tougher finish avoids breakages, when compared to glass. Single glazing is the perfect choice for seasonal buildings such as summerhouses and sheds providing plenty of natural light into the building.

All garden buildings should be assembled on a firm and level base. A base will ensure your building has a solid, long-lasting and well-drained foundation.

If you want to build your own base, from a sturdy material such as concrete or flagstones, you can find minimum dimensions for each size of this building in the tech specs. In order to protect your building from moisture, you should leave a 2ft gap around the exterior of your building, so remember to take this into consideration when laying any sort of base.

Our robust and simple to use EcoBase provides you with a firm, long-lasting foundation with suitable drainage for your garden building. It is quick and easy to install through the use of snap connectors that link the grids to each other.

If the building is shorter than 2.5m tall you should not require planning permission, (unless it’s more than 50% of your garden or to be put in your front garden). Planning permission rules can vary by area so we would strongly recommend checking your local council rules before ordering from us.

We do not offer an installation service on any of our buildings, as they are designed to be easy and simple to assemble. Using the assembly instructions included in your order confirmation and with a team of at least 2 people you can expect to have your BillyOh building up within a day, or as little as 3-4 hours with some of our smaller buildings.

Our sheds are delivered in easy to build pre assembled panels. For your convenience the panels are no wider than 4ft so they can be easily maneuverable and fit through a standard doorway.

Your order can be tracked through the account section on our website or by contacting us directly. You will be contacted after your order via your online account, email or text to provide updates on delivery dates.
