cracking price

Warning! These sheds are a nightmare! Then come in 2 huge boxes that contain a million screws, bolts and washers and take an age to assemble (that's if you can assemble the shed as many of the holes don't line up and you have to drill new ones which causes yet more problems).

Once that part of the bad dream is done then you are left with a huge WET space as these things harbor condensation like you would not believe, added to this whenever it rains water floods in underneath as they DO NOT come with a floor.

Please, if you don't believe me then read the reviews, these things are more trouble than they are worth. Buy wood or at the very least plastic, you will be 100% happier in the long run.

A few reviews from people that have had similar negative experiances as me. Also Note; if you are tall IE: over 5.5ft then you will have to constantly duck as this shed is not very high at all.

Recommend to a friend? No
"Great size, for the storage I needed, but due to condensation & water running under it , I am restricted on what I can store.
Am in the process of trying various ideas to rectify this."

Recommend to a friend? No
"Ok my shed is 90% built, the roof panels became bent near the end which resulted in two of us having to drill holes all over the place. instructions were ok but when i saw how far page 19 was from page 1 i was terrified because there was so many pieces and screws. 2 weeks on and still not fully built as I have to keep coming back to it. when it is done it will be a weight of my shoulder. when built it looks nice, I think it could have been manufactured to make it easy to build. hoenstly I would not recommend, half way through I wanted to return it. if anything should have got a smaller size because I never thought it would be that huge!!"

Recommend to a friend? No
"But seriously it comes in 2 boxes 1 is 4ft x 4ft the other is 5ft x 4ft. This should give you an idea of how many parts you have to put together, if you think its cheap its a false ecomomy it took me and my hubby (whos a builder ) 2 days"

Recommend to a friend? Yes
"it is very hard to put together. ones set it it is average quality.the panels are so flimsy.i m happy i didnt pay full price. delivery was excelent."

Recommend to a friend? No
"What a load of rubbish. Weeks to put together.
Not sure how its going. to last in the winter months."

Recommend to a friend? No
"Kite shed.
Wind came and blew it all away."

Recommend to a friend? No
"easy to assemble but needs 2-3 people but not on a windy day!!!
sheets were on the flimsy side
major problem with condensation on roof all contents need to be covered in plastic or in waterproof containers to avoid water damage"

"Ok for a shed not the thickest of metal it did take 2 of us a full day to erect.alot of screws and bolts, not all the pre drilled holes lined up properly. the instructions were ok to fallow i have added extra strenghteners reasonable value for the money"

Overall Rating
1 of 5
1 Star Poor
"In my personal opinion this product is the poorest item ever bought! The quality of it , erecting it, stability of the shed, head hight , value for money etc etc...it just not worth the buy! Plus you got about approx 1000 nut and bolts???
I would not recommend this product to anyone...rather buy a genuine wooden shed!!!"

"After 2 days of toil and drilling were holes do not line up still left with a poor product with no headroom."

I absolutely agree with Norse, these things are a nightmare. though the price is fantastic!

This could be just the thing I'm looking for. A friend has some ponies at grass and is looing for a new field shelter over winter. This seems ideal as there is no floor and the doors will be open (or maybe off completely). Could anyone who has got one advise whether this would be suitable for building on grass, and also, is it heavy and steady enough to withstand the wind?

Thanks,

I'm lucky enough to have a fair size garden so ordered 2 of these. One, for a kids get away with their friends and the other for storage. We put up one which took 4 of us a couple of days and then we got some rain which made the whole thing soaking wet inside, that was enough for us and both were sent back.

With regards to your proposed use, how tall are the ponies? as this shed is only 5.5ft inside.

Building this on grass? I wouldn't! We had ours bolted down through slabs and I was concerned about it lifting in strong winds. The whole thing is weak and tends to flex quite a bit even in moderate winds. For the animals sake I'd stay well clear.
#10
Wouldn't be suitable for ponies, they would lean/scratch themselves against it, and possibly kick it.

Go for a 12'x12' timber field shelter with at least 4' high internal kickboards.

This sounds like a good deal until you read all the reviews.


I once had many years ago a plastic shed with no floor.

One day the council grass cutter knocked on the door and asked my mother "do you want the grass cut inside the shed as well as outside" ?
#12
I've helped a neighbour put up a Yardmaster 10' x 13' metal shed, they can be very good sheds, I assume this one is very similar, as it seems almost identical in construction. The pitfalls that can be overcome are

1. It has to be 'square'. If you throw the panels together, and don't true it up, the holes won't line up, it's a big flexible structure, initially some holes looked out, but quickly measuring the diagonals, we realised it wasn't square, so used some bits of wood temporarily to help true it up, the holes then lined up, and once together it held it's shape very well.
2. It needs to be bolted to paving slabs/concrete, or a wooden platform, you can't just slap it down on mud/grass. We put it down on paving slabs, and used liberal amounts of frame sealant to seal the gaps in the paving slabs, and around the outside of the shed. The wind can't get in/under it to lift it, so it's quite stable.
3. It's like a greenhouse, it needs some ventilation to prevent condensation (and it'll never be perfect), but we drilled some breathing holes low down on a sheltered side of the shed, and he's never had any real complaints.

That's a yardmaster shed, this may be vastly different, but it doesn't look it, They are £375 in the sales at the moment (May even be cheaper, that's the first price I found!)..

Bottom line, these require serious DIY skills and the ability to know how to 'true' a large flexible structure. If you seal it properly to the floor, and add some extra ventilation if required they can work really well, but I'd take people's advice above, and think twice before ordering...
#13
Thanks for the feedback; much appreciated.

I bought a much smaller one. Never again. Took ages to screw the bloody thing together. Dry if you build it off the ground (e.g. on some pallets - but that is a lot of pallets for this size shed) definitely not substantial enough as a field shelter for even the weakest of ponies.
#15
I got the 8x6 version of this about 2 months ago - yes it had a lot of screws, but 2 of us were able to put it up without any problems. it looks great and fits well, and is perfectly waterproof.

if you are able to read instructions carefully you will be fine - it isn't hard at all, it just takes time. It starts off looking really flimsy, but once it's all secured it's very solid
#16
great price for a **** product. waste of time imho.

LMAO i thought there was only three stooges?
#18
Please stay clear even if you manage to over come the thousands of screws and bolts not to mention the razor sharp panels which cut me to ribbons, this shed is very flimsy and like the previous comments will rattle and bang in high winds. As a result to stop the neighbours complaining about the noise i have had to reinforce the panels inside to to avoid the panels banging and being buckled.
#19
Go for the plastic Keter ones, very easy to assemble and include a base.
#20
These sheds do take a day to build and take a minimim of two people. Yes they are flimsy while under construction but if you have built it correctly are very strong when completed. You should bolt it to either a concrte base or paving flags. If you didn't order the (optional) floor simply lay chipboard (fix visqueen cladding to bottom and up around edges) across the exisiting metal frame. This will result in a water tight strong shed. You don't need much technical or DIY know how just a lot of effort and most of all patience.
#21
Agreeing with all the negative reviews so far.

The one we got from Argos was missing parts which was only discovered half way through building, by the time they sent the missing parts this flimsy shed had swayed and the metal had ripped and torn. This despite it having been secured to the best of our ability.
Wouldn't trust this in high winds even when fully built, and this was in a semi sheltered area with a concrete base.

Waiting for them to collect it at the moment...

Would steer clear of this unless you're absolutely certain you can deal with all of the downsides.

These have really bad reviews and this price isn't indicative at all.

Buy one from Shedstore - about £50 more than this price (free delivery) much easier to build.
#23
Ask yourself why a similar size shed from a quality maker such as Asgard costs around £2000. You get what you pay for and a decent shed has a floor that fits (metal for the Asgard), screwholes in the right place, quality screws, a ventilation system that works (important for steel sheds, double locking and can be lined up true even by one person. No weight given for this one but it should be over 500kg if it is any good.

I lol'd!
#25
Thanks for posting but does anybody know if there's a standard version? I think the 'deluxe' model might be a bit much for me.
#26
Pity it does not mention manufacturer. I've had a Yard Master for well over 10yrs and although a bit faded its still rust free and solid. Beware of condensation thought during winter.
#27
There are some dodo's on their reviews. A full spec sheet of dimentions and one person is saying its too big for them. huh?
#28
Don,t buy it. I agree with all the negative comments - so many parts - so flimsy and the claim it takes two people six hours is absolute nonsense. The best bit about it is the base I built. What a terrible waste of money. I always check tripadvisor before I dine or go to a resort/ hotel. Why Oh why did I not search this site before I purchased it?
#29
they are good for the money ive got a 6x4 and 10x8 in my garden. people who give negative reviews have not organised their build by not laying everything out or followed procedures in the instructions as to the quicket and simplest way to build etc. some people underestimate parts count and time reqd and they expect it to arrive in 5 pieces (4 walls and a roof ).one person ten hours which is ample in the height of summer with someone to give you a lift on with the roof at the end. ive got mines anchored to levelled slabs.
very sturdy when its complete but agree on the lack of confidence when building.
not very secure but neither is any shed, if someone wants in they'll get in.

any metal shed is gonna get a condensation cycle if humidity is allowed , most common case rising damp
I put damp proof membrane over slabs then secured base frame / sealed round frame with silicone then when shed was completed lay down some heavy garage matting stuff from Costco that locks together and trim to fit.
on the shed roofs I used 3m no77 spray and 4mm laminate flooring polystyrene type underlay and have no condensation issues or tools rusting up.

so really plan it out and do that little bit extra and I think its a god storage shed bang for buck,, ive seen plastic ketter sheds rip apart in high winds and they are 3 times the price,, wooden sheds last for average 5 years and need pulled down plus roofing felt is just garbage

Hi i bought one off these sheds some years ago now ,the worst thing i did was leave it at the property i was living at the time .Yes can be a bit of a mare to put up but if you read the instuctions propery it should take two to three hours if you now what you are doing. It will take two people may be three, to erect.I used to house all of my power tools, and garden materials. Fantastic product im just about to buy another one . The only problem i found was the door,s can come off quite easy off the runner,s but are quite easy to put back on . dont go at like a bull in a china shop and you should be fine .Im about to buy the10x13 . the price is great when compaired to wood ,
