Thanks for this, I was looking for something to store all my money in ;-)

Things to be aware of with metal sheds, they take a while to assemble having got zillions of nuts bolts and washers and lots of bits of metal that look nothing like the (usually) badly drawn manual pictures. They are light so need anchoring down unless you dont mind next door having it one night, and they sweat a lot. Condensation forms inside and drips on the contents.
Apart from that they are a reasonably quick and cheap means of getting extra storage space and mine will arrive on Tuesday the 26th ;-)

they dont usually come with flooring so need a concrete base to anchor them to and this one doesnt say it comes with an anchoring kit

You can also fit these onto flagstones using rawlbolts/anchor kit (screwfix). I'll see how the condensation goes but can fit a grill. I'll also fit a flooring kit ontop of the concrete slab worked the price out via local builders merchant £43

MikeT I presume you have ordered the larger size for your money

My father got one similar to this and as MIke says, nightmare to put up ...etc etc.

I went for one of the Keter plastic ones, ok it cost a bit more but boy was it worth it.

Far more headroom which is a plus in many ways, maintainence free, bar giving it a wipe clean (metal ones needs runners lubricated regularly), integrated floor, far heavier.

Another thing is my Fathers one is starting to look long in the tooth only after a couple of year, whereas my one still looks brand new.

Oh and it was a breeze to put up.

These sheds are cheap for a reason, basically they are crap.

I have arranged to have the money converted to diamonds so I just went for the 8x10.
In reality I need some temp storage for a few months and at that price its ideal, I already have enough spare paving slabs for the base too.

After that I may try to whittle it down some in size to make a bike shed for the kids ;-)

We also have one of these sheds, and agree they are like a giant jigsaw puzzle!:x

Remember to add your 'sweat collateral' to the price of the shed!

Having said that, it has been up a year, still looks OK, and has kept the garden furniture dry during all the lovely summer weather we have had lately.:roll:

Giant Meccano kit. Got to be worth a hot vote:thumbsup: :w00t:

Can you let me know how you get on erecting it as mine should arrive around 14 days and any tips would be appreciated. I have a great selection of hammers both left-handed and right-handed so I should have no problems :-)

Cheers

I think what you'll REALLY need is a battery powered drill and some socket bits, unless you want mega wrist muscles:thumbsup:

Yes just be very careful and dont overtighten as the self tappers dont like that.

I got a shed from Woolworths late last year,it turned up and we thought we be able to put it up rigth away what it never said on the site that you would need make base,the site implied it was ready to assemble.We not really into building stuff and DIY anyway.
So I called up for a return and the courier kept failing to collect,eventually a courier finally turned up,and he wouldn't take it back,because it been in the back garden so long ( I told them over phone I couldn't store something like that inside due to small kids and it be dangerous should it fall as they told me to do this when courier failed to come a number of times) it been out there maybe 6 weeks,courier refused I called back up Woolworths and they said ok we will refund you and I got to keep the shed.
Its still out in my garden partly in the box,we no idea where to start to erect it and besides don't want to be trailing materials from B&Q as no car.
#13
I ordered on the 2nd July and have just has Argos on to say that they are having some stock issues and will not have any until 12th August. Just my luck.

Still a good deal.
#14
Mine arrived today, two big heavy boxes. Several panels slightly bent however they have straightened OK. Looks like a mission for next weekend, wish me luck! each part is numbered so assembley should be easy! (I hope)

[mod]#15
Well I hope you have better luck than I did, Mine arrived ages ago but had to stay boxed up till all this rain passed by.
I opened up the boxes to find quite a lot of bent and scratched painted parts, but worst of all was when I started to assemble it I found I had 1 top rail missing, so I cant even put the thing together. I did a complete stock check to see if anything else was missing and found I had 2 parts extra, though they wont help me.
Got onto Argos who say they have to send for missing parts and it will be up to 21 days to get it.
So I am not really a happy bunny now as I did need it up by now, having been held up 2 weeks by all that rain. Might be quicker for me to make the part!

Thanks, not what I want to hear......If I find a spare top rail in the box I'll let you know.

[FONT=Arial][SIZE=2]Just spent the best part of 9 hrs assembling this shed with assistance. I must admit I was tempted on several occasions to pack it all back into the boxes and return it. This is not for the faint hearted, I have trade and DIY is not a problem for me, I must admit this was a challenge as holes didn't line up, screws were easily tightened to much, instruction were somewhat vague and parts could easily be damaged whilst fitting them. On one occasion I had to rely on two extra people to support the side/corner members. Anyway the shed is flimsy (paneling) however it serves the purpose I bought it for at a reasonable cost as a means of storage, this is better than my timber shed of which I paid £280 for and have to treat every year.[/SIZE][/FONT]

[FONT=Arial][SIZE=2]Sorry Mike, no spare top rail, but have loads of nuts and bolts.[/SIZE][/FONT]

Bomberman, I spent an hour or two making a top rail replacement while waiting for the rain to stop so I could build mine, the new missing part arrived before I had chance to use my home made one!
My trade is engineering and I too found the instructions somewhat foggy in places and the screws just too easy to overtighten in the very thin sheet.
As to making absolutely sure that the base is square before assembling anything else, ha you only have to breath on it and its out of square again. I resorted to mounting my base onto a 3x2 timber base frame that was very square and screwing the metal one down onto that to keep it square as I need to build mine to some degree off its eventual site and then move it part built to its final position.
Once mine has served its purpose of tempory storage I will take the saw to it as I need it to become a 10x4 bike store in the future.
Glad yours was all there though ;-)

I did say avoid this shed, they are more bother than they are worth.

Reasonably quick you said Mike...I certainly didn't think so when I have put them up in the past,could have put up a wooden one in half the time and thats with waiting for the tree to grow ha ha.

The self tappers need to be tighted with extreme caution thats why I mentioned before when someone mentioned a battery drill, ok if your using a high quality one, otherwise ratchet drive with caution is the way to go....

Better still, get hold of someones Costo card and get the Keter one for more pennied but believe me its money very well spent and you could put up 10 of them in the time of one of these tin huts ;)
[mod]#23
I have to agree that the tin shed is not the best solution for the garden for the many reasons given several times in this thread, but what they do offer is large storage area for small money. My situation is that I required storage now and although I have a project ongoing building a 12 x 20ft shed at the top of my big garden, it wont be finished until next spring as I have too many other things to do before working on it more. My sheds tend to get built over engineered with timbers twice the size of shop bought kit so this tin job is a complete reversal of my normal practice.
I talked myself into it as I do need to site yet another shed along the side of the house sometime soon for bike storage and our local regulations require any shed in this situation to be mainly constructed of fireproof materials, so once the storeage problem has been overcome the tin shed will get cut down in size to 4x10ft and repositioned and become an ideal store for all the families bycycles
#24
Peeps,

I would agree with both Mike T and gogboy however the tin shed serves a purpose with little expense. I looked at the plastic version in Costco however couldn't justify the additional monies, plus I don't know anyone with a large van to bring it home. The tin shed is fine for storage and if condensation proves a problem I'll fit 1 or 2 grills. If I had to do it all again I would buy the tin shed.

Finally it's all about what people will use this for and how big their budget is.

The Keter in Costo isn't a fortune more is it? I forget the exact price now but it's a cracking deal, the 8 x 6 is about 400 in the likes of B & Q and Argos

Hi

The unit in Costco is £512.00 plus you need to arrange collection.
