2021 started as it finished, with the spectre of Covid continuing to dominate all our lives. Fortunately, at The Posh Shed Company we have been able to continue working throughout abiding by the various regional restrictions. I would like to also take this opportunity to say a big “thank you” to all our customers. You have assisted in keeping our staff safe and out of Covid’s way while on site. Your cooperation has been much appreciated by us all in the “Posh World of Sheds”.
Worldwide Shortages for Shed Builders
The global pandemic continued to throw surprises into our path throughout the year. Indeed, we experienced record price rises in our materials in 2021.
As demand from the US and China kicked in, this ultimately led to severe shortages across the entire supply chain.
Thanks to the support of our partners and the dedication of our staff, overall, we were able to keep the impact to our production schedule and to our customers lead times, to a minimum.
It has not been all doom and gloom though. In May we launched our new “Comfortably Posh” option. Constructed with pressure treated timber and fully insulated, Comfortably Posh beautifully fills a gap in our portfolio. This consequently allows our customers to make more creative use of their sheds all year round. Its popularity has been evident since launch, and we could not be more delighted. After all, what’s not to like!

New Shed Designs
Based on one of our most popular bespoke designs, The Richmond was snapped up by eager buyers from the moment it was launched. Its central gabled door along with all the windows on the same side, and a variety of sizes means that it is perfect for locating a home office, or as a hobby room at the bottom of the garden.
2021 saw the launch of a new larger shed with a veranda. The Wimbledon seems to invite you to while away midsummer hours on its veranda with a cool drink. The summerhouse feel has certainly been popular, as many people have focused on home and garden improvements during the pandemic.
A Strengthened Relationship with The RHS
We were delighted to support the opening of the new World Food Garden at RHS Hilltop. The first dedicated horticultural scientific centre of excellence in the UK is located within RHS Wisley and opened in June, following six years of development.
They told us that they were looking for a shed to allow visitors to view the fabulous produce grown in the garden. Together with the team from the Edible Garden at RHS Wisley, we were able to design, build and install a bespoke shed, perfect for the job. Visitors can make their selection from some unusual varieties to take home, leaving a donation if they wish.
What’s in Store for 2022 in the World of Sheds
Some of our more observant customers may have noticed that we launched a new website in December, paving the way for a full e-commerce solution in February this year.
This is an exciting initiative and will give customers the ability to purchase online 24/7.
Prefer the personal touch? Don’t worry, our staff are still at the other end of a telephone to support you through the journey.
Four New Shed Launches
2022 is already looking like it will be an exciting year for us. We have four new product launches planned throughout the year, and without spoiling the show and getting told off by our marketing team, the launch of our most prestigious project to date so, watch this space.
Finally, we at The Posh Shed Company would like to thank you for your continued support. We look forward to another exciting year in the world of sheds and to serving you again through 2022.
Stay safe and keep your sheds well ventilated…
