Get what u pay for

We used this as a duck House, its really not suitable for anything else. Lining up the doors is near impossible because it's just not cut straight. Top tip - build it with screws in but loose and tighten at end or you will struggle to get it together. It has holes in it and the floors flimsy. I'm actually suprised they sell these I'm not sure who quality controls them (I assume nobody!) in summary. Good for ducks to poo in and that's about it - I now have to pul lthr whole thing sideways to get the bolt open.
Delivery rejected !!!

Had to reject delivery of one of these sheds. Three of the overlaps on one of the panels were severely warped and would definitely not have been weatherproof.
Cheapest on offer for a reason

We are renting a house and needed a shed to go in our carport (not out side in the element ) to store normal garden stuff , bikes, lawnmower etc.
I looked at a few shed options and decide to buy this one .I read the reviews and thought can’t be that bad … I would say that I am competent in DIY carpenter and this is my experience.
I looked at the one in the B&Q store, noticed that the floor flexed and that there were a lot of gaps in the frame joins but I thought that it was just due to being put up quick.
On buying in , I decided to strengthen the floor, went to the wood yard had some treated timber cut to the correct size and fitted an additional 3 joist to the floor, this made the floor stronger.
On fitting the shed upright panels, the end panel didn’t fit so , had to plane down one short edge of the floor panel so the panels fitted square.
As per instructions book , and I like to belt and brace things , the floor joist were sealed with two coats of wood preserver.
The frame section joints were very poorly nailed together, so I glued and added 60mm screw to each joint to strength them. All this taking additional time.
The cladding panels are thin and aren’t all square to the frame, so when fitting the panels these did not butt together very well and required me to plane the cladding panels down so that the frame fitted squarely against each other. if this was going outside as per the instruction manual all the joint would need to be sealed with a waterproof mastic.There were also a lot of wood knots that had fallen out , again requiring to be filled.
The doors in the store had diagonal x bracing , mine did not and I have added these at additional expense to strengthen the doors.
The door hinges have counter sunk holes for the screws , the instruction book is not very clear on how the hingers should be fitted. After carefully examination of the instruction book and looking online at the shed , the hingers fitted to the outside of the doors, the frame part of the hingers( inside part) means that the counter sunk holes are facing inwards and so you have a flat side of the hinge facing out (thus no counter sunk for the screws) I spent some time twisting, turning them in all directions but this is the only way they fit.The screws for the inner part of the hinge then doesn’t fit central in to the frame but means the screws go in between the frame and cladding ,between two pieces of wood- frame and cladding thus they are not a ideal place to screw into.
For the door lock I added 4 coach bolts and for all 6 hingers added an additional coach bolt per hinge for security reasons , these were not included and were purchased additional cost for a few pounds.
I did not cover the roof in the felt as the shed is under cover in the car port however it seemed very thin compared to a shed that I have felted recently.
The instructions state that the shed needs painting with a wood / shed preservative and if it was going outside I would suggest this was a good idea and would even suggest pre painting the inner frame before building.
I would say took about 6 to 7 hours to erect, that was on my own and because I done extra work on it.
You pay your money and you make your choice …
So on reflection I wouldn’t buy another one and when we move will leave it, pay more and get a better quality one, but If you happy to do a bit more work to make it more robust , paint it as recommend it’s cheap and cheerfully.

Nice idea having the double doors but the quality of the wood was terrible
