High Quality Buildings
Our Buildings are constructed in our Isle of Wight workshops, from custom-designed garden rooms, offices and studios to standard garden buildings including sheds, garages, summerhouses, and specialist buildings such as aviaries, beach huts, stables and children’s play rooms.
All of our garden buildings can be supplied in kit form for self assembly or completely installed for you by the Lushington Garden Buildings team, wherever you are in the UK.
Friendly and Professional Approach
From the top down our customer service is something we strive for excellence in. From the moment you call to the manufacturing team to the team that assembles your building, you will find us keen to make the whole experience as smooth as possible.
All of our hand-crafted sheds can be built, delivered and assembled within 2 - 6 weeks of an order being placed. In the peak season from March to September this may increase up to two weeks, but here at Lushington Garden Buildings our team are always mindful of timescales and the individual needs of all of our customers. All of our garden rooms and workshops can be delivered and assembled within 6 - 12 weeks whatever the time of year.
Occasionally we have onsite buildings that are ready to go and with stock and sale options it can sometimes workout that buildings can have a much faster turnaround depending on work load and availability of staff.
