The Evergreen Workshop is a small family owned and run business. Passionate about garden buildings we have spent literally thousands of hours in creating, repairing, restoring or just relaxing in these little timber buildings located in the garden.
We originally trained in the construction industry from trade qualifications through to site management level. However the workshop and it's tools proved too strong a calling and so The Evergreen Workshop was born.
Our passion for garden structures was instilled in us from an early age by our grandparents and parents. The garden was a sanctuary where we could play and explore. within the building, whether that be a shed, greenhouse or summerhouse were places where things happened, items were made and repaired, seeds sown and wonderful fruits ripened. Our grandfather was an avid model engineer and as youngsters we were introduced to machines and tools that could make working steam engines or wooden toys. For us this has become a life long love and the garden structure has become a place to develop, explore create and reflect.
Free from the normal rules that surround the main house, Garden structures can be whatever we want them to be. For some it is a tool store, others a workshop, an art room or pottery studio. We have worked on writing rooms, day rooms and changing rooms for swimming pools. childrens spaces where drums can be banged and unique worlds created.
Whatever the use we celebrate the garden building and believe that it shouldn't be an eyesore that needs to be screened and hidden. We want the structure to enhance the space it occupies and be a worthy addition to the garden.
Within our workshop are all the usual canidiates, a cast iron table saw, thicknessers, jointers, chop saws, lathes bandsaws and spindle moulders to name a few. Supported with a vast range of hand power tools and traditonal hand tools. All meticulously maintained and presented to make the whole wood working experience a pleasure and ultimately deliver a quality product. Every job we undertake is a passion that we find addictive.
There are sheds and there are garden buildings. The first step in creating any garden building is the design. In the same way we wouldn't buy a car without a trip to the showroom so we wouldn't expect anyone to commision a garden building without an oppurtunity to see what the finished building would look like. We have computer design facilities and with my expeirence in architectural design, I enjoy sketching out a new design, we accept that it isn't always right first time and regularily go back and tweak or redeign to building until the homeowner is happy with what they are going to get.
Once designed we can build, treat and paint the structure before arranging an install date and time to unviel the new building. We make everything from walls, windows, doors and internal fitments. All custom designed to work in the new space being created.
some buildings are elaborate decorated structures that form a feature in the garden, others are simpler practical storage rooms and workshops, All however are built using quality materials and constructions methods that will ensure the building will continue to look good and function properly for years to come.
