Stilla Glendale 8x8 Timber Shed Assembly Video
Today we are assembling the Stilla Glendale Timber shed.
Before we begin there are just a few things you must keep in mind:
Firstly please be careful when handling all components, some parts have sharp metal edges. And always wear work gloves, eye protection and long sleeves when assembling your shed.
Check your manual for the list of tools you will need for building your shed.
Make sure you have these on hand before starting… to avoid any delays and problems.
PREPARING YOUR SITE
Before you start building your shed, you need to prepare and choose the site.
Choose your site carefully. It must have a level surface, unless you have purchased an
- Elevation kit or
- Heavy-duty floor kit with your product.
Clear the area of stones and remove all plants, roots and other obstacles. Then use a rake or shovel to level the surface if need be.
UNPACKING YOUR SHED
First you will need to unpack your shed kit.
It is recommended to use a clean work surface to spread the parts out and for pre-assembly.
Remove all parts from packages and place in a safe close to assembly area.
Review all instructions; continue to refer to instructions at each step of the assembly
All parts are marked so it will be easy to find and follow the steps in your manual.
Step 1 Floor/Surface
Make sure to complete your floor before starting to assemble your shed. It will act as a level building surface and starting point for your project.
As you can see we have already assembled our Timber floor- please refer to your manual if you have one of these and need to assemble it.
Step 2 Wall Assembly
We will start with the shell of the shed but a here is a quick tip… Now is a good time to decide where your windows will go if you purchased an optional window or two. They can replace any of the wall panels in the following instructions labeled 12P.
To start you will need one wall panel labeled 78P and one 12P. Note they are different lengths.
- Place panel 78P on the rebate of the floor panel like so.
- Screw through the 78P wall panel to fix to Wall panel 12P.
- You will need to repeat this so it is fixed at the top, middle and bottom.
Tip: hold the studs flush on the inside and ensure tongue on VJ cladding is facing upwards
You may also need a helping hand at this stage to keep the walls standing straight and level.
Next align another wall panel labeled 12P along the other and fix these together at the top middle and bottom.
Follow the same steps for the rest of the wall panels till you have all of them securely standing.
At the end, you will have the shell of your shed with an opening for your doors, which we will hang later.
BACK GABLE ASSEMBLY
Okay now that the shell is complete we need to add the front and back gables.
Lay part labeled 8FFRG on the right and part 8FFLG to the left facing down on a flat surface.
Screw together in position shown, holding flush at the bottom. Use two 65HHS screws.
Repeat the process with the back gable pair 8FBRG and 8FBLG.
Turn front gable over.
Position part labeled SCS, which is Stilla branded, flush with gable frame and flush on each end.
Nail through cover strip into gable using a 50N nail
Position part labeled 8FFGCS on the front gable cover strip, over the join in the front gable. This will provide a clean finished look (no gaps). You may need to cut the peace to size.
Fasten in position using 50N nail
Hold the doorstop labeled 8DS in the doorway and cut out on front gable.
Nail it up through 8DS into gable using 4 x 50N nails.
Attaching Gables to the shed
Now lets attach them to the top of the wall panels.
Carefully position front gable in position ensuring tongue on wall goes into groove on gable. Fasten up through front panels using 2 x 65HHS either side. Repeat with back gable using 1 x 65HHS either side and center.
STEP 3 Roof Assembly
Next step is to construct and add the roof to the building.
Constructing it may take a little time but doing it properly will ensure a secure and sturdy roof. Panels are made from Steel so be careful when handling them
Line up part R and push them into part labeled BB and TB. Then insert 100bS into predrilled holes to fasten. - Use one per join
Next lay the roof frame on a hard surface.
Position roof sheet’s labeled WG1480 flush at the top and flush with end of the roof battens.
Fasten roof sheets to roof frame in number sequence shown, using parts 40RS.
Please note to only screw in pan at the top and in the rib at the bottom.
Quick tip- slightly angle screws when fixing in pan to avoid screw going right through batten.
Complete laying roof sheeting out on frame then Fasten roof sheets to battens in sequence shown.
Complete screwing roof off at the top and then the bottom in every rib.
Note: Use a straight edge to keep all screws in line and centre of batten
Next Step is assembling the Channel
Fasten capping 2710C to roof using 5 parts labeled ST.
Repeat the process to complete the other roof panel.
Now to install to roof
Now we are going to put the roof panels on the shed.
Slide the first roof panel into position and fasten up through front and back gables.
Ensure roof rafters are flush with gables.
Fasten up through sidewalls top plates at each end and each panel join.
Ensure walls run parallel with bottom batten labeled BB, on roof.
Repeat this step for the other roof panel.
Finally to add the finished touches to your roof… you need to add the collar tie.
Holding Collar tie tight and level in position screw through CT into Roof Rafter.
And that’s it- all you need is the ridge cap but that goes on a little later.
We are going to move onto your doors now.
STEP 4 Door Hardware Assembly
Place door on the side and hold hinge in position.
Hinges to be 100mm down from top and up from bottom
Fasten hinge to door using 3 x hinge screws per hinge.
Holding door in position 3mm down from top and front of door flush with front of VJ cladding, screw though hinge into wall panel using 4 x hinge screws per hinge.
Door Handle Assembly
Now to install the door handle…
Remove bolts and leaver from the back of T Handle
Mark and drill 12mm centre hole in position shown, 50mm in from door edge. Insert T handle in position and mark two outside holes. Remove T handle and drill 2, 6mm holes.
Insert T handle back in with bolts, and fasten nuts on back of door.
Holding door in closed position, flush with VJ cladding on front - slide leaver onto T Handle and tighten once hitting on wall stud beside door.
Step 5 Corner Post And Cover Strip Assembly
Hold corner post labeled 1910CP in position like so. Fasten through corner post into wall stud using 6, 50mm nail.
Spacing evenly up each corner post.
Repeat for all four corners.
Hold cover strips 1910CS over join on wall panels. Nail through cover strip into wall panels using 6 x 50mm nails evenly spaced, per strip.
Put cover strip into door hinges and into cover strip on front gable. Fasten to wall with 6 x 50mm nails.
Repeat task on other side of door keeping at least 4mm away from swinging door.
To give the roof its finishing touches, hold fascia’s in position. Flush with bottom of battens and meeting evenly at the top.
- Front fascias have the tongue to the top.
- Back fascias have the groove to the top.
Ridge cap installation
Slide ridge cap into position. Make sure peak of ridge cap is in line with peak of fascias. Screw through ridge cap into 2nd rib in from end and through into batten. Repeat this on both ends
Fixing Shed to Floor
The last step in the process is to fix your shed to the floor.
Screw the Wall frame to the floor, top down starting at the front of shed and moving around. Fix the shed in each corner and at each joist.
And that completes your Glendale Stilla Garden Shed.
