Sherwood Summerhouse Composition
Sherwood sheds are manufactured from 99% recyclable materials delivering environmentally friendly credentials. Their wall-facade, doors and roof make-up comprises of 26 mm thick double sided polypropylene resin panels reinforced internally by a corrugated structure increasing rigidity and strength to escape the demise in appearance future dents display.
Each wall panel secures with screws to the vertical white steel struts displayed in the images up-above making up the shed’s infrastructure, the same principals apply to the roof structure delivering robustness to the entire construction whether subject to blizzards, heavy snowfall, driving rain or sat in hot climates they are designed to survive constantly changing weather conditions.
Inside Sherwood’s represent a spotless bright neutral appearance to complement the colours of any furnishings whilst the outer layered walls are coloured with light oak pigments delivering a traditional appearance enhanced by the natural look of wood grain embedded within the surface produced by Grosfillex’s super stylish heliographic printing process delivering enchantment to the overall finish.
The wall facade displays a horizontal panelling effect around all sides whilst up above the doors towards the apex peak, vertical panels exhibit.
A UV stabilisation process provides the resin composition with protection against colour fade and surface splitting when subject to sunburn attack aiding to maintain Sherwood’s wondrous looks without succumbing to perished appearances sun-bleaching effect portrays.
Sherwood’s PVC composition trumpets out weather-defence advantages resisting decay whether subject to damp conditions or hot climates requiring no conservation upkeep duties associated with replacing rotting panels, re-varnishing or re-painting.
Grosfillex replace yesteryear’s maintenance issues with an effortless wash-down once in a while when the muck appears. Warm water mixed with light detergent and scrubbed with a soft brush regards the elementary role required to restore their spotless display. Many simply lightly pressure-wash them down prior to the warm season commencing.
Avoid using full power jet-pressure washers or abrasive cleaners as these may damage the facade surface, just stand further away whist using a pressure wash.

Sherwood’s Roof Structure
The roofing structure constitutes the same PVC manufacture the walls possess whilst secured around their metal framework the infrastructure bolts to the apex peak ridge beam providing well bolstered overall central support.
Sherwood’s are absent from a skylight translucent strip embedded within the apex peak seen on many competitors sheds due to their central supported ridge beam however rather than truss systems spanning across the internal width, Grosfillex’s clever design creates a more homely spacious environment perfect for summerhouse accommodation whilst instead of skylights the deliverance of daylight is entered through larger facade and door windows.
A nice angled roof pitch delivers an abundance of internal headroom whist equipping the top with an efficient rainfall drainage system. The roof panels protrude generously beyond the facade avoiding the occurrence of rainwater dripping in where the walls abut.
Although the modern light shade of the roof panels cap Sherwood’s off with chic styling, their main advantage as opposed to roofing felt’s sudden deterioration when subject to damp conditions regards their resistance to weather-decay without capitulating to future re-roofing projects further down the line, the reason for their popularity.

Sherwood Summerhouse Features
The main idea behind designing and creating your own Grosfillex summerhouse shed relates to fitting your own floor, they are not supplied with an integrated floor. A level surface of wood or concrete prepared at least 10 cm thick provide ideal solid level foundations leaving the purchaser to leave the foundations as laid if the shed is to be used for traditional gardening services or fit an internal floor to match one’s decor and furniture dependant on what the summerhouse is to be used for.
Many people extend the foundations around their summerhouse for additional outside seating accommodation, especially at the front surrounding the doors entrance.
If for example, desires are to create a summerhouse to serve as a kitchen diner sat on a BBQ deck, a swimming pool chalet or a private Jacuzzi-spar hut to what I’ve just heard one family has constructed their Sherwood into then non-slip floor tiles would be beneficial. Otherwise the abundance of choice regarding wood flooring, attractive floor tiles or alternative floor coverings to match one’s furnishings, seating accommodation, office furniture, games room equipment etc, etc.
Presented within each corner of the shed, anchor systems are secured to the corner steel struts accompanying the additional anchor placements running around the shed’s perimeter for securing the shed down into the solid foundations below. The type of anchor bolts are determined by the foundation material the shed is to be secured to, either wood or concrete.
To make the shed watertight, sealant should be applied inside the shed where the walls adjoin the floor. Full illustrations are presented within the instructions.
Additional anchoring kits designed for exposed areas can be implemented, consisting of easy-fit steel cables, clamps, tensioners and quick links.
The cables inconspicuously fit within the corners of the shed whist the anchoring kit further secures the already in-place anchorage system down into the ground delivering reinforced support. Sometimes these anchor kits are supplied, other-times they are additional extras, check with the seller prior to purchase.
A mounting kit is usually included (check with supplier) to enable safely hanging items and installing shelving. The kit contains six fixings inclusive of screws. The fixings are cut to the desired length, their conformation slides within the structural shape of the vertical steel struts and secures with screws. Screws are then screwed into the fixings to secure shelves and hooks etc.
Each Sherwood Summerhouse has the option of installing the facade window on either side of the shed to suit garden surroundings whist accompanying the large windows in the doors delivers an abundance of daylight to the interior.
Within each top corner of the shed air-vents are fitted to generate air circulation to the interior, preventing a sweaty atmosphere developing and condensation building up inside, replaced with a fresh internal ambience to accompany the bright and airy feel resulting in rather a homely internal environment, a clever design.
Security is a big issue to us all nowadays, Sherwood’s are fitted with traditional key-lockable door handles just like a house door providing a true door closure and security peace of mind for your secret escape.

Assembling a Sherwood Shed
The main priority regarding building these Sherwood sheds relates to preparing solid, level and flat foundations for them to stand on:
This one step foundation process aids the construction procedure in the following ways:
- A level base alleviates assembly headaches by delivering straightforward alignment of the panels
- Level footings eliminate leaning pressures due to the roof weight applying equal force on all shed sides
- Level foundations are paramount to enable easy alignment and the correct workings of the doors
- A solid, level, flat base delivers the perfect substrate to silicone inside the shed to enable a straightforward waterproofing procedure
- Solid, level and flat foundations deliver the correct base to enable the easy fitment regarding your choice of floor covering
Assembly regards following and implementing the step by step procedure illustrated in the instructions. Two people are required to build, one supporting the panels whilst the other secures with screws. Prior to the build, work out which side the facade window best serves your location.
Refrain from assembling on a windy day, a step ladder and room around the shed’s perimeter is essential for fitting the roof panels. Sherwoods usually take two people a couple of days to fully assemble, then it’s time to step inside and customise your own personal space.
