At GBC, we are continuously striving to improve our products, methods and materials, which means we may change the specification of a product or range from time to time, but we will not make any significant changes without your agreement
Top Tip - Add Georgian windows for a classic, timeless appearance. This looks great with any cladding option!
Choice of Timber Cladding
Choose between redwood, pressure treated, cedar, heavy duty redwood or heavy duty pressure treated. The redwood cladding (both standard and heavy-duty), are pre-treated with a water based preservative inside and out before it leaves the factory. The pressure treated cladding (both standard and heavy-duty), has a long-lasting treatment forced deep inside the timber giving the timber an attractive green hue which complements gardens well. We can also provide this building in a 23mm pressure treated Barnstyle which is an attractive and practical timber with an over-lapping cladding effect.The Western Red Cedar is a beautiful and versatile timber which produces its own natural oils and preservatives making it a durable and rot-resistant species of timber, perfect for a garden shed.
The Malvern Workshop range buildings are supplied as standard with a 38kg heavy duty felt roof (available in green, red or black).
Fully Framed, Ledged and Braced Door with 3 Lever Lock
Strong, secure and built to last with heavy duty antique-style hinges fitted with security screws.

This Holt Pent is 10ft wide x 6ft deep and located at our Abingdon branch. It features Western Red Cedar cladding with an attractive clear treatment option. The model also features a practical timber workbench under the windows as a workstation.
Shown here is a 10ft wide x 6ft deep Malvern Holt Pent shed. The cladding is 23mm Pressure Treated Barnstyle and this particular building has optional Georgian windows
Each Heavy Duty shed can be professionally installed by Malvern's own teams of skilled fitters on the same day as delivery is made. Make sure to choose installation for a hassle free and quick installation.
This Holt Pent has been finished in a Medium Oak stain finish which is long lasting and looks great ! It also has optional Georgian Windows and, although you can't see it too well, an internal tongued and grooved lining.
All of our Holt models can be painted if required in one of our selection of countryside colours.
Our standard cladding on Holt sheds is 12mm deal ( pine ). This is treated with a wash of quality wood preserver both inside and out before it leaves the factory.
Illustrated here is the 19mm thick cladding option. Some customers prefer this as the shed walls are considerably thicker and allow some items to be mounted on the boards. In very windy locations it also makes what is already a very sturdy building heavier and less prone to damage.
This picture illustrates the cedar cladding used on a large proportion of our Holt sheds. Cedar is known for its long life and good looks. It has its own natural oils in the timber which makes it very resistant to rot. Despite this we still pre-treat your Holt with a wash of quality wood preserver before it leaves the factory thus ensuring it gets off to a great start in life !
This is the optional Medium Oak stain finish. We also supply the Holt in a range of 12 countryside colours. Take a look at our Cottage Summerhouse pages on this website which will show you many of the colour choices available.
Pictured here is the Medium Oak stain on our pine cladding... it has a lustrous sheen and preserves and protects the timber for many years.
Pressure treatment is literally that : all components of the building are placed in a large pressurised cylinder which forces the preservative deep into the timber. The formulation of the preservative gives the pressure treated Holt sheds their green / yellow hue which complements so many gardens. The barnstyle cladding is of heavy duty 23mm timber that locks together to create a smooth finish on the interior. Good looks and an extended lifetime are the main benefits of choosing pressure treated construction.
The Holt Pent shed has a long lasting 19mm heavy duty floor with pressure treated closely spaced support joists beneath.
Although it's shown here ( on a wet day ! ) with pressure treated floorboards, if you choose the Deal or Cedar external cladding for the building the floor will be 19mm Deal with pressure treated joists.
We refer to 'joinery made windows' elsewhere in this website without really explaining what it means. These windows are properly jointed at the corners ( rather than butt jointed ) which makes them extremely sturdy and resistant to twisting and warping. They are constructed using a moulded edging section which is more attractive than conventional finishes.
Another useful option with the Holt is the uFoil insulation and tongued and grooved internal lining. This makes your Holt a true hobby room or studio with the additional protection this gives.
The picture shows the intersection of the walls and roof and some detail around the roof truss.
The UFoil insulation is in the cavity between the walls.
This white door on a painted Holt gives a good background to show off the antique style handles and 3 hinges which are fitted on all Holts, whether painted or not !
Look carefully and you'll see that the hinges have a security screw as well as normal screws in each section to help prevent break-ins.

We always appreciate any helpful information regarding access to your pre-prepared base area, plus any details you may need to share with us about reaching you - so that the delivery process can run as smoothly as possible.
Our Malvern Traditional Sheds all come with optional installation. If you are thinking about having your garden shed installed by our skilled team of fitters, please be aware that you will need to have a good, strong, level base, pre-prepared prior to your delivery date. We would normally recommend a base constructed from either slabs, concrete or heavy duty decking. We will always confirm these details with you at point of order and we will provide you with base plans if needed. These measures ensure that no detail is left out - ensuring that your garden shed will be both delivered and installed without any inconvenience.
Our delivery times can vary from season to season, but typically, you should expect to receive your building around 3-4 weeks from when you order. All of our buildings are made to order, so during the busy spring to summer seasons, this may increase to 6-10 weeks dependant on the building that you have purchased.
