Stepping into a timber building is always a unique experience. The aroma of freshly cut wood, the warm hues, and the intricate grain patterns – it’s not just a structure; it’s a piece of art. But have you ever wondered how these beautiful timber buildings come to life?

It all begins with the wood. Our team sources premium-quality timber, ensuring it’s sustainably sourced and perfect for crafting quality structures. The choice of wood varies depending on the building’s purpose. From robust 19mm softwood cladding on larger structures to the delicate finish of cedar for intricate designs, each piece is handpicked for its quality and character.

Crafting with Precision

The Finishing Touches

A timber building isn’t complete without its finishing touches. Depending on the design, our team selects the right kind of windows, ironmongery, or cladding. This doesn’t just add to the aesthetic appeal but also acts as a protective layer against the elements. And it’s not just about the exterior.

  • I'm extremely pleased with my new garden shed from Truro Portable Buildings, and also with their treatment of me as a customer. The shed is a first class product, excellent quality, delivered in a short timescale and erected in about two hours. The process of choosing a design was made easy by quickly-answered phone calls, and the honesty of the management was demonstrated when I was stopped from accidentally over-paying! Great team, great product. - S Ellis

  • Terrific building and company. I had a 12x8 Sherman built in August, great to be able to remove the old eyesore from the garden and get sorted again. Great build quality, speed of order was fair and the fitters were timely and no stress. Glad I went for the superior shed from Truro Portable Buildings, I would highly recommend.
