Good Product for the Money

Very good value for money, looks good and quite sturdy. Windows were a bit flimsy.
Not as Easy to Erect as Expected
Graham29 - 1 year ago
I ordered this shed at the end of August and it was delivered mid September. This suited me as it allowed the dismantling and removal of my old shed and replacement fencing to be carried out before delivery.
The new shed looked reasonable on first inspection before being erected although there were numerous nails which were not fully driven in, the flooring was not square, some pieces (cover plates between "windows") were too long and had to be cut, the top feather on the front cladding was broken off and there were several other slightly less worrying splits / notches / large knots noted.
On starting to erect the hut it was evident that the wall panels were bowed /distorted to some degree ( one side panel was really bad) and it was a particularly strenuous task to marry up the panels and screw fix together. For those who are considering buying I would strongly recommend buying a box of 50mm screws as you will need considerably more screws than the supplied amount if you hope to keep the panels together.
With the hut finally up after more hours than I would like to admit, I expected the roofing felt ( supplied with the hut ) to be straightforward but alas no. If I had followed the instructions supplied and cut the length of felt in two I would have been left with two pieces of felt neither of which were long enough to cover even the flat of the roof. Thankfully I had measured the roof before cutting the felt so I was able to get one length at least and I used surplus felt left from my old hut to finish the job ( who cares about differing colours anyway)
The hut does however look good now that its up ( maybe because I treated it with Cuprinol Garden Shades ) and its still standing after the stormy weather of late, but I do feel that it could have been much easier to erect if more thought and care had been given by the Manufacturers ie square the timbers, punch home the nails, provide correct length components, provide backing blocks where fixings are to be made, do something to prevent / minimize distortion of the timbers, provide sufficient fixings .
Just what I wanted
Brian1955 - 1 year ago
I have been looking for a shed for some time. I visited B&Q store to ensure I wanted this size, style & Shiplap construction type. I am very pleased with the shed. It is good value for money, excellent delivery service. The only difficulty was the windows. It would be easier if these were fitted from inside the shed. All in all - just what I wanted
Not recommended, poor quality
FW1 - 1 year ago
The shed fits together OK but is very flimsy. The timber framing to the panels is 28mm square - barely enough to hold them together. My front panel was badly bowed and I had to screw heavy timber battens to the back to straighten it up so that the door would fit. The floor seems solid enough but there are spaces between the boards - they ought to be tight fitting and tongued and grooved. The polycarbonate windows are a joke to my mind, they are very flimsy and I threw them away and used proper glass instead (this involved quite a lot of extra work). The roof 'panel' is a poor quality type of chip board. The roofing felt was not rolled round a tube but was a 'flat' roll so that there were cracks in it. The door hinges look very insubstantial and one of the hinge screws 'misses' the door framing. The locking hasp can be bent by hand !
Finally - watch the sizes. You do not get a 7 ft by 5 ft shed - at floor level it measures 6 ft 9 inches by 4 ft 8 inches overall on the outside. Read the metric sizes in the spec'!
Good small shed

This was a present for an anaversery. The shed was just the right size to fit on the hard serface aria. Was easy to put up just a few screws. Looks great in its location!
