Complicated assembly and poor quality construction
ShedBuilder78 - 4 years ago
I do not recommend this shed.
I bought this shed understanding assembly would be required, but I didn't expect it to require two people working two full days to assemble. I am an Engineer but not a DIY professional; this is not a project for the feint hearted and many others would have given up before completion. You can't stop part way through - once you've started the frame assembly outside you have to complete it even if the weather changes. It also means if a part arrives damaged you can't do much until the replacement is delivered (free of charge the following Monday but that halted construction that weekend so the kit of bits had to be stored in my house).
An important note if you buy the wooden floor pack: It comes with NO instructions and goes underneath the shed, not inside. When I saw the awful quality of the floor pack I thought it went inside and it had to be modified after shed construction was complete to achieve this. Even if it had been installed under the shed it came with no method to anchor the shed frame to the floor so over time the shed would just slide off it!
It is a bit like an adult version of the well known Children's metal construction kits. To give you an idea it comes with over 500 bolts+screws (plus a plentiful bag of spares - a good touch).
To give an idea of the design quality:
1. The apex of the roof sheets is sealed with (provided) silver tape.
2. It took a lot of jimmying to get things to line up due to the flimsy quality. You need a determined mind to get screws/bolts to line up with holes - especially when a bolt goes through 6 pieces of metal.
3. The instructions are at best average; while fairly reasonable at the start the detail reduces in quality at the end when the roof is added (the hardest part of the construction). In parts the instructions were so poor I had to figure it out myself.
4. 10 screws wouldn't tap and had to be discarded. 15 self tapping holes had the threads taken off by the screws and had to be converted to bolt and nut.
5. It has no guttering (nor any option to install same) which makes it useless for filling a water butt, and leaves the rain running off the roof and down the sides.
The biggest disappointment was the complete lack of security. I know sheds aren't the most secure of buildings but since they will likely hold things like bikes and lawn mowers they should at least have basic security. I would have expected reinforced padlock holes built into the metal doors. On this shed the two plastic door handles padlock together - each is held on with two small bolts easily loosened from the outside with a screwdriver (that's if you're too lazy to just snap off the handles). You wouldn't have to force entry to get inside.
The resulting shed does seem sturdy but I've not tested longevity. I doubt it will feel so sturdy in a year or two when all those self tapping screws and tiny bolts, that hold the structure and flimsy wall pieces together, have had a chance to work loose in the wind and rain.
Bottom line - I would definitely not recommend the shed for the price paid (£520). If I had seen it before purchase I would have looked elsewhere. The construction quality is terrible, the floor pack came with no instructions (or anchoring kit) and it requires advanced DIY skills to construct.
Rowlinson 10x8 Woodvale Metal Shed

Excellent purchase. It took a weekend to erect for 2 people, but this could of been shorter if wasn't for the bad weather. The down side is the thickness of the panels. They are quite flimsy & need to be handled carefully. The instructions were quite straight forward & there were plenty of fixings. The shed was bought with a floor which comes in 4no. 8'x21/2' timber framed panels. I'm now thinking of getting a second.
