Timber Workshops

Our timber workshops are ideal for anything from a commercial application to your home or garden workshop, tool shed or studio.

Perhaps you need some extra storage space or a custom designed workshop for your hobby, project or craft. Whatever your requirements, our functional and sturdy timber workshops are just the job.

Why Choose an Olson Timber Workshop?

All of our workshops are constructed from the same sustainably sourced, pressure treated timber that we use in our range of timber buildings.

Being based in Kent with more listed buildings than any other county, we know how important it is to design a good-looking workshop that conforms to planning requirements and is sympathetic to the existing property.

Built to last, we guarantee all of our timber buildings for 5 years.

Simply Designed For You

One size does not fit all; we work with you to design your ideal timber workshop that incorporates all the features you require.

Whether that's full height windows, wall and ceiling insulation, adjoining toilet and kitchen, we build to order so that we can create your bespoke design, whilst our large stock of pre-cut timbers and materials mean that our construction lead time is quick.

We have lots of useful planning advice for building timber workshops, and can help to guide you through a planning application.
