Our verdict on the BillyOh Outpost Insulated Building

The BillyOh Outpost Insulated Building comes with a pent style roof, holds a 10 Years guarantee, fit with double doors, and is treated using a pressure treated process [1]. The 4 windows used on this particular 13′ x 9′ use a 14mm double glazed material.

Base material: wood

Our experts say this has 5 stand out features. A stand out feature is something found on over 70% of the top 10% of products in a particular category or is an exceptionally good feature as rated by our panel of experts.

1. The tongue & groove cladding used on this shed is one the best available for sheds rated by our experts.

2. A 66mm thick cladding like the one used on walls of this shed is one of the best rated by our experts.

3. This double glazed glazing material is one that our experts say is one of the best available for windowed sheds.

4. When asking our experts, they said a 14mm glazing material is on of the best you can have on a shed.

5. A pressure treated treatment like the one used on this shed is one our experts are happy to say is one of the best around.

Below is a brief overview of how some of the key points of this shed fairs across the market.

Cladding

Outstanding, our experts say most of the cladding options used are among the best.

The tongue & groove cladding(walls) used here is the best form of construction for shed walls out of the 4 types [2] we’ve identified on same-size sheds, that you’ll also see getting used on 35% (1,543 of 4,360) of all sheds analysed [3], as well as being used on 21% (92 of 436) of the top 10% of sheds [4]. You’ll also find the tongue & groove cladding showing up on 41% of 13′ x 9′ sheds (73 in total) [5], and if we compare this item against those 73 we find it’s Expert Score is 11% higher than the average score for a 13′ x 9′ tongue & groove shed.

The walls are 66mm thick and we rate this the best thickness out of the 10 found on same-size sheds [6]. It is used on 1% of all sheds [7] and after analysing the top 436 products that make up the top 10% of sheds [8], we don’t find this thickness present on any of them. Further analysis shows us that out of all 13′ x 9′ sheds this is the only one to use 66mm thick walls [9].

Window

Amazing, our experts say most of the window options used are among the best.

Double glazed windows come installed on this shed. As a glazing option, we rate it the best out of the 4 glazing types found on 13′ x 9′ sheds [10]. This particular type of glazing is used on 1% of all windowed sheds with a look at the top 10% of sheds showing us that none of them choose to install windows with this kind of glazing. 3% of 13′ x 9′ sheds with windows (3 in total) use double glazed windows, with this product having an Expert Score of 7% higher than the average.

The windows on this shed use a 14mm thick glazing, we rate this the best thickness for window glazing out of 6 different thicknesses found on same-size sheds [11]. Glazing this thick is found on 1% of all the windowed sheds we analysed and our analysis of the top 10% of sheds shows us that none of those 256 sheds that make up the top 10% come with a glazing this thick. Out of all windowed 13′ x 9′ sheds this is the only shed to make use of 14mm windows.

The 656mm x 1211mm windows on this shed are 66% larger than the average 13′ x 9′ shed. The window height is 1,211.00mm (4′) tall which is 36% taller than the average 13′ x 9′ with 320.85mm (1′) extra height. The window width is 656.00mm (2′) wide which is 31% wider than the average 13′ x 9′ with 154.77mm (0.5′) wider width.

The door height is 1,870.00mm (6′) tall which is 7% or 119.50mm (0.4′) taller than the average 13′ x 9′.
The door width is 774.00mm (2′) wide which is 69% or 537.51mm (2′) narrower than the average 13′ x 9′.

You Might Also Consider

We found 141 13′ x 9′ sheds with comparable specifications. The BillyOh Outpost Insulated Building has an Expert Score that is 8% higher than average and is £80 more expensive than average. If you are looking for the best value or highest expert scoring sheds out of the 141 with comparable specifications the following might be of interest.

Best value – If you are looking for something comparable that costs less, then you could save £4,390 with this 14′ x 8′ Mercia Shiplap Pent Shed. It is priced at £1,469, this is 299% less than this and has an Expert Score of 85, 7 points less than the BillyOh Outpost Insulated Building.

Highest Expert Score – With an Expert Score of 95 vs 92 for this product, the 14’x8′ Tiger Garden Studio is the best 13′ x 9′ shed with comparable specifications, and is priced at £4,870, that’s £989 less than the BillyOh Outpost Insulated Building.

High Wind Area – If you live in a particularly exposed or high wind area then having a shed with a thicker cladding and higher than average frame thickness can be preferable. We found at least 3 sheds that have a combination of features that can make them more suited to higher wind areas.

Redlands 12′ x 12′ Hot Tub Shelter
14′ x 8′ Shed Republic Ultimate heavy-duty Workshop Double Door

Coastal Consideration – If you live in a particularly wet or harsher environment such as by the coast then you might want to consider something with a more robust pressure treatment or something made from metal or plastic, both materials that are particularly suited to such harsh environments. We’ve found at least 3 sheds that have a combination of features that can make them more suited to higher wind areas.

10′ x 12’4 Yardmaster Balmoral 1012WGL Metal Shed
10′ x 12′ Lotus Heritage Green Apex Metal Shed

Public-Facing – Extra security measures might be more of a concern if you’re placing your building in an area that is more public-facing than a garden. Features such as security windows or even having no windows at all, and the ability to lock all opening doors are usually much more important when you have something that is more public-facing. We found at least 3 sheds that have options that you might find a better fit if this is a concern you have.

More Child Friendly – If you have children and you are looking for something that has that little extra in terms of durability then tougher glazing options might be a better option. Here we have at least 3 other options that will fill those needs.

1. Pressure Treated: Considered the most durable wood treatment, this is where the wood undergoes a process called tanalisation. This is where the timber is submerged in specialist wood preservatives (such as Tanalith E, this is actually the origin of the word ‘tanalisation’), this is a unique combination of copper and organic biocide ingredients (it is the copper that gives the finished wood the slightly green colour). The wood then goes into a high pressure vacuum tank (the Wood Protection Association has a good article/video on this) to draw out excess moisture and air and force in the preservatives.

This deep penetration of the exterior wood protects it from the elements and all forms of insect attack. Wood treated this way can last many years without being re-treated. The BS 8417 code of practice (this advises on the choice of timber species and the use and application of wood preservatives) says “ penetration to either 6 mm (15 years) or 12mm (for 30 years) has to be achieved in any exposed surface in sawn material.”

It is also worth noting that if cross cutting, notching or boring treated timber during or after installation, ALWAYS apply an end grain solvent-based (or oil-based) wood preservative treatment to the freshly exposed areas, this will maintain the integrity of the protection. NEVER put cut ends in the ground, even if end grain coated.
