come on guys and gals I want some feedback, what do you think ? anyone got one ?
#2
i havent got one but am considering getting one. very tempted. good deal.
#3
Looks good. Depending on your location, I would suggest looking into the wind load factor (if you live in an area prone to high winds).
#4
im not sure if the deal is good or not as ive never seen one before but it looks pretty hot, I wanted one of these for years to protect my car as i use to live in a bad area before, but ive moved now to a much better place lol. have some heat.
#5
The only (and main) problem of metal garages over wood, brick or concrete slab is condensation. The guy next door has a metal garage and it runs with water inside these last few weeks when the humidity has been high and the temperatures low.
#6
Cant comment on price, but looks a little simple to me - basic sheeting applied to a basic frame.

Im sure it would do the job of basic protection ok, but if someone wanted to get in im sure it wouldnt be very taxing. Of course, once in they are also free to do their 'business' (hot wiring, vandalising etc) while being masked by the shed.
#7
I have a smaller version and trust me you need a lot a degree and time to build it! The instructions are clear but blimey what a mission to complete!
#8
yes, a nightmare to assemble
#9
It might be a silly question, but do you need need planning to erect something like this?
#10
We (DH and me) did our bit for our local school and offered to assemble a very small version of this, for the nursery toys.
WHAT A NIGHTMARE!

The instructions rely on you being able to locate the stickers on the panels to identify which part is which. Some of the panels had no labels. Some of the screws aren't self tapping and so you needed arms like an orangutang to reach and hold the bolt on one side and tighten the bolt on the other. The edges of the metal were razor sharp..... I could go on but I think you get the picture.

No wonder no other parents offered to do it!!

I wouldn't take one for free!!

BUT thats just my opinion :roll:
#11
This looks like it would blow away in a strong wind. These metal type sheds are also very prone to damage - the panels dent and crumple like nobody's business. Note that the 10 year rust guarantee only counts against 'undamaged' panels. If you actually have any undamaged panels left after 10 years of use (or even 10 months) it would be a minor miracle.

.....oh, and it also looks too narrow to actually get in and out of your car!
#12
I had no probs with the costco one but I don't think they stock them anymore.
banned#13
Haha! It doesnt even say its home assembly, imagine getting home and finding this delivered in an IKEA type state!

Or if you eat a lot of beans....

From looking at the specifications on their website I think this garage is definetly wide enough. The door is well over 8 feet wide (257cm) which is wide enough for a ford transit van to pass through so if you imagine that the garage is bigger once you're past the doors then you could easily fold the mirrors in on your ford transit van, drive into the garage over to one side and open your door far enough for even the fattest of us to get out of.

Now lets be honest nobody is going to buy this to store a tranny in (considering its not tall enough), unless of course you've got a man trapped in a womans body that you keep in the garage :D, so to look at a normal car, say a ford focus which is less than 6.5 feet, this door is almost 8.5 feet wide so you realise just how big the garage is. 2 foot wider at the door than a ford focus including its mirrors and almost 3 foot wider inside.

I've got the 10x13 feet metal shed like this. It is a fair job to put up but can be done by 2 people in a weekend.

Once up it is very sturdy as there is a LOT of weight in it, I'd be amazed if wind could shift it as it weighs a ton.
I built mine raised up off the floor on some 3x2 length of wood. The condensation issue is easily resolved by lining the inside with thin insulation sheets. I used some 5mm stuff off a roll and no probs anymore.
I'll put some photos up later.

Most unlikely as it's deemed a temporary structure but probably if you live in a conservation area.

I see you can get larger sheds and garages of up to 12' x 30', because it's a temporary structure does anyone know if these larger size buildings need planning permission or is there a set size you can only go up to? (I have a lot of stuff to store..., wife calls it's junk!):?

So that I can put a wooden floor in without losing any headroom. Wooden floor should also eliminate any condensation and also allow for ventilation underneath..
#23
Thanks for the feedback guys, It looks like I will getting one I mean assembly cant be that hard, and condensation issue is easily resolvable, as to the concerns regarding wind, it comes with an anchor kit this basically allows you to tie it down, but I am a bit concerned about planning permission? anyone shed any light on that?

one good thing about metal sheds is that you get to hear even if some1 touches it the slightest bit, if someone was to brake off the front padlock and try getting in, it will sound like someone playing the steel pans or some other metal instrument haha. but really another good thing is that they dont corrode easily as appose to wood rotting and becoming damp, but as mentioned above they do pile up alot of condensation when there is alot of humidity eventhough it is ventilated.
As for price or if i was to comment on this being a good deal, i would say its is a very good price, i paid £300 for one that holds a motorcycle and a quad bike. This huge mother****** can hold a jet plane.

Oh you HAVE to bolt this thing to the ground and also lay a solid foundation/ground, i used concrete slabs....all this has to be considered in the price.:thumbsup:

the reason why i raised mine up is so that no water can make its way into my shed...mine is about 2.5" off the ground so it would have to be a monsoon to get water going in.

water = damage to your items inside

There is very little that you need planning permission these days. You don't need planning permission for any single storey building or extension that is less than 3m in height (I think it's 3m anyway). However, there is a little ruling that says that any proposed extension/garage must ensure that there are still 2/3 of the land left that was there when the original house was built. Again, not exactly sure of the 2/3 bit or the exact wording, but a quick google search should sort you out.

pics as promised......and if you get one I would advise a power screwdriver as there are hundreds of screws to use!
I also put a bit of silicone on each screw I used on the roof as i did read some people had water seeping through the screw holes.

I sent out a few emails to websites selling these self -assembly Shed/Garages. From the two that replied the concensus on planning permission was as follows... "Planning permission should not be required for any of the metal buildings, but, if in doubt a call to your local council should suffice." and... "As far as we are aware there are no planning issues however I would strongly reccomend getting in touch with your local council and just check with them as they can get a little funny sometimes"

So I think it would be best to check with your local Planning office...as much as I hate bureaucracy you just know that when it's up some jealous neighbour will want to report you!
THATS LIFE I'm afraid...LOL.......:-D
