The Forde is a truly versatile garden building. Made from our high grade European Softwood Interlocking logs and features draught sealed windows and double doors. These doors can be off-set to the left or right on the front gable of the building. The Forde also features a practical 60cm (approx) front roof overhang to protect you from the elements. One matching side window is standard, this can go on the left or right-hand side.
