About Us – Wooden Garden Buildings and Animal Housing
We take pride in our workmanship, and nothing other than high standards will leave our workshop. We make our hand-built dog kennels and garden buildings in the UK, and we provide a range of wooden products. In addition to our standard products, we also offer a bespoke service. Garden and Animal Structures is a friendly, family run business based in Stoke-On-Trent, Staffordshire, putting your needs at the heart of what we do. Be rest assured that our passion for all things wooden will shine through – whether it be a cosy home for your pet or a sturdy store for your logs.
We strive to provide quality and affordable products, along with excellent customer service. We can make our garden buildings to your specifications if required. Please get in touch to discuss your requirements.
Who Are We?
Sometimes it’s nice to put a face to a name, or a voice at the end of the telephone! So, here we are – I’m Sam (right), and he’s Ross (left). We have been married since 2012, have two crazy daughters and are passionate about what we do. Ross has always enjoyed woodworking and is a qualified joiner by trade. He can produce quality bespoke designs and has over ten years of experience in creating garden buildings. G&A Structures was set up just as we were expecting our second child (gulp). However, we love what we do and have never looked back since!
About Our Products
We use high quality, A Grade Scandinavian Redwood to build all of our dog kennels and runs, garden buildings and bespoke animal housing. TanalithE pressure treatment protects the timber from insect attack, rot and decay.
We use ex50mm x ex50mm framework (45mm finished) and 16.5mm x ex125mm (12mm thick finished) tongue and groove shiplap cladding on walls, floors and ceilings. Quality tongue and groove creates a sturdy and robust building that will last.
All products come with a polyester-based, heavy duty felt roof. Our superior felt has a clever backing that will seal itself down once warmed in the sun.
All our timber is sourced from well-managed forests governed by strict environmental programmes, accredited by FSC and PEFC.
Dog Kennel and Run Our dog kennel and run structures are high quality and include a number of features as standard.
Find out what a wooden dog kennel and run from us includes.
Our premium dog kennels come with FREE aluminium anti-chew strips around pop holes. Also, our enclosures are easy to maintain. For example, the dog run panels are raised-up on feet off the floor, and the sleeping area floor is on ex 50mm bearers which allows ventilation underneath.
Our dog kennel runs come with 5cm gap bar dog run panels as standard. The galvanised dog run panels are heavy duty and are the preferred choice for many of our customers. Alternative dog run panels are available if required, including 8cm bars, mesh and 3/4 mix solid. Please call us to discuss.
Garden Sheds Our wooden garden sheds are ideal for garden storage or for using as a hobby room
Tongue and groove, wooden shed
We know that a garden shed needs to stand the test of time, which is why we build them from sturdy tongue and groove cladding. Above all, we refuse to compromise quality for cost and will never use cheaper alternative materials. Our sheds have fully clad, tongue and groove walls, floors and roof to provide you with a quality product.
Our range of tongue and groove wooden sheds include those with apex roof or pent roof, depending on your preference. View our blog post for tips on choosing a style for your new timber shed.
