A Guide to our Quotation System
Our aim at Phoenix Timber Buildings is to provide the type of garden building that is designed by you to suit your needs. Accordingly, we do not have stock items but work up from a footprint of your choosing. This will give you what we call a ‘Shell Building’, the simplest version of the building that you require. We then offer you a series of upgrades to enhance the look of your building and to make the most of the budget that you have. The final price quoted will include delivery, erection and VAT.
Helpful tips to get you through our Quotation System:
1. Pick the type of building that you are interested in.
2. Choose the length and width of the building.
3. Choose the type of cladding for your building.
This combination will give you the cost of what we term a ‘Shell Building’. In the side box you will see the price for that building together with details of what is included in that price.
