John Griffin started Kent Sectional Buildings in 1958 – over 60 years ago now – by building bespoke ‘standard’ sheds that would and did last for decades and would STILL look good.
They don’t make ’em like they used to – except we do!
We build sheds to order -bespoke – to suit your needs.
You can choose from ‘standard’ sheds – sturdy workshops – a hybrid option or, if you’re a keen gardener, one of our cute potting sheds.
On this page you’ll find our ‘standard’ sheds but as you read through the specification and see our customer testimonials you’ll soon realise they are anything but standard.
As we just mentioned, we’ve been making bespoke garden buildings since 1958 here in Chartham near Canterbury and we’re very proud of our reputation.
Your shed will be made by our skilled craftsmen at our workshop before being delivered to your property and erected on a base prepared by yourself or we can build one for you (at extra cost)
Take a look at some of the sheds we’ve made for our customers and use them for inspiration. If you need any extra detail please just ask us.
Without further ado, here is the typical specification and below that you’ll find our price list.
Any questions at all please call us on 01227 738 374 – we are here Monday to Friday 9am to 5.30pm and on Saturdays 9am to 12 noon

Prices do not include VAT. Please ensure you have a base ready. If you have any doubts or questions about how to prepare and build the right base for your garden building please ask us. It is very important the base for your building, whether it’s a standard shed or whatever, is prepared and laid properly.
We cannot and will not accept responsibility for structural problems after installation if you prepare and lay your own base so we’d rather you checked with us or if you prefer, we can prepare and lay the base for you (at extra cost) please ask when you place your order, thank you.
