Looking for an affordable but high quality small to medium shed that is nice and spacious on the inside? Look no further than the 7 x 7 Alderney Shed from Shire. With quality features that include first-class timber, thick and sturdy wall cladding, a robust framework, a tongue and groove floor and shiplap tongue and groove cladding, what more could you possibly need from a shed to assure you it will last for years to come? Whether you have garden furniture, tools, a lawnmower, kids’ toys or simply have existing storage spaces that are bursting at the seams, the Alderney will provide a fantastic expansion on your current storage.

Plus, the Alderney’s spaciousness and generous roof height also makes it suitable for use as a home workshop. When you also take into account the opening window that is included as part of the package, this provides you with an interior is bright and airy, ensuring that it is ideal for workshop use. You can also rest assured that the Alderney will look great in your garden, wherever you situate it. Its attractive apex roof and charming, Georgian-style 'crossed' glazed window add extra character to the shed’s pleasing exterior. Finally, the Alderney’s sleek and smart tongue and groove timber finish completes what is a really good-looking garden shed.  


The Alderney gets its strength and durability from its 34mm x 34mm framework, which is sometimes as much as 20% thicker than the framing on similar products from other manufacturers in this price bracket. The Alderney also includes a 12mm tongue and groove floor as standard. This is another quality feature that is seldom found on sheds of this price and ensures you have a shed floor that has an impressive load capacity.

The Alderney boasts a high quality, 12mm thick shiplap tongue and groove construction. On shiplap tongue and groove sheds, the individual boards close together tightly. This gives the building great strength and the interior fantastic protection from the elements by encouraging water run off.

The shed’s opening window is glazed with horticultural glass for a clearer pane and long lasting clarity. This is another selling point of the Alderney as many other sheds that are this affordable will use Perspex or a similar material, which often dulls over time. Plus, the window has a unique profiled 'lip' that covers the opening in the panel which adds further weather resistance. The window has two levels of opening and can be located anywhere on the side elevations of your shed to suit your needs.

Its roof is made from 8mm oriented strand board, (OSB) a robust material that is weather resistant. Mineral roofing felt is also included to add to the shed’s weather resistance and provide protection against damp and rot.

Wide opening double doors allow easy access when taking items in and out of the Alderney and they are ledged for additional strength. A padbolt, to which you can attach a padlock, (padlock not supplied) is also included to provide security for valuables stored inside the shed. This range of fantastic features demonstrates why so many choose the Alderney for their gardens.

About the Timber

You will be impressed by Shire's use of natural products and their environmental credentials. A high quality timber shed starts with high quality timber, so it is important to know exactly what timber is being used. The most commonly used timber for garden buildings is pine (pinus) as this is widely available for a very cheap price, however all of Shire's garden buildings are constructed using high quality spruce (picea) and is sourced from Scandinavia under strict FSC guidance. Spruce is more durable than pine and provides a higher quality finish. This timber is slow grown unlike fast grown British and Eastern Europe's timber, being slow grown timber means a tighter grain, less sap and with far fewer knots. The timber used on Shire's products is therefore a more durable timber that will last much longer than other timbers. Spruce is therefore the timber of choice for companies such as Shire who always look to produce the best garden building.

This shed supplied pre-treated with a base coat to both sides in a golden brown water based industrial product (colour can vary from the picture shown). Shire recommends that you apply a water based top coat. This will protect the timber from weathering on your shed making it last longer and will need to be repeated accordingly in relation to the manufacturer's instructions.

"Excellent and prompt
The order was easy to place and the delivery excellent and on time. The instructions were clear but would have been easier to read if a bigger print had been used. It was fun to put together and fairly straightforward. The opening window is lovely and was easy to fit.We are very pleased with the design of the shed and found the modular panels easy to put together. We would use this company again as the staff were very helpful.
