Walford Timber Premier Sheds assembly instructions
Due to the heavy-duty construction of the Walford Timber Premier Shed range, we recommend at least two people for its construction.
You will need:
Battery operated drill/driver with Posidrive No.2 screwdriver attachment.
Utility knife (for cutting shed felt)
1. Ensure you have a solid and level base to situate your shed (such as a concrete pad). Please note that the shed is unlikely to fit together properly if the base is not level, particularly when you come to fit the roof.
2. Remove all packaging from the shed including the protective blocks that are attached to the bottom of the side panels. These can either be screwed or nailed, so either unscrew the block, or knock them off with a hammer.
3. Place the back panel on the floor panel of the shed. This is usually the blank gable. The frame of the back panel should sit on the floor panel with the cladding left over hanging the side of the base.
4. Have your assistant hold the first panel in place while a side panel is butted up against it forming a corner.
5. Screw through the corner battens on the panels to secure the two pieces together using 2 screws top and bottom to pull the sides firmly together. Do not screw to the floor yet.
6. Repeat steps 3 and 4 with the other side, attaching it to the back gable.
7. Remove the door from the remaining gable and put to one side.
8. Fit the remaining gable in the same manner as the other sides.
9. When all sides are screwed together, use a set square to check the corners to ensure they are square. Once true, screw the side panels to the floor with a screw in the middle of each section of vertical frame.
10. Slide a roof panel up on to the building until the bottom edging piece butts firmly up again the side panel. Have your assistant hold the panel in place while you screw it in place from inside. At all stages fix the roof panels to the wall frames from the inside of the shed, screw upwards or outwards into the roof frame (not the boarding) as appropriate. Screw through the apex framing of the gable into the roof panel using six screws (top middle and bottom of the apex).
11. Repeat with the other roof panel.
12. Roll the felt out along the length of the roof to gauge the required length, leaving approximately 70mm overhang on either end of the felt. Or, if preferred, measure the length of the roof panel and add approximately 140mm for overhang on either end of the felt. Once the length has been determined, use your first piece as a template to cut the remaining pieces required to cover the roof. Felt should be fixed using clout nails supplied, in horizontal rows, at approximately 100mm centres, starting with the lower felt sections first working your way up to the apex. We recommend a minimum overlap of approx. 150mm when overlapping felt sheets, nailing through both layers when fixing the covering layer.
13. Take the four 19x65mm corner cover strips supplied and nail them to the exposed external corners of the shed.
14. Fit the hinges and latch supplied to the door. Have your assistant hold the door in position while you screw it to the shed. Walford Timber Premier Shed doors can be hung as left hand or right-hand opening.
15. Take the 25x100mm fascia pieces supplied and fit them using 4 screws per board to the gable ends of the shed making sure the felt is tucked and secured neatly behind it. Pre-drill the diamond finials and nail or screw them on to the apex of the fascia boards. Nail the felt overhangs down along the long edges, at the roof eaves, using the clout nails supplied (the felt here is exposed, not covered with timber boards).
16. Walford Timber Premier Sheds are fitted with an opening window as standard. These windows require two different sizes of glass. The larger pane is to be fitted from the outside of the building.
We recommend that gloves are used when handling glass to avoid injury.
Run a bead of silicone around the inside of the window frame, then offer the glass into the frame ensuring an even gap all the way around. Run another bead of silicone around the edge of the glass and secure in place with the beading provided.
17. With the external glass secured, repeat the process with the smaller pane of glass, but fitting the pane from the inside of the building.
Your Walford Timber Premier Building is now complete!
