This handy and elegant little building is a great versatile addition to any garden or yard. It's storage uses are many, you are sure to find a use for this versatile storage addition to your garden.
Construction
The building is made from the aesthetically pleasing traditional rough sawn overlap board which is both stylish and practical and the overall construction of the building will blend naturally into your garden environment. The roof is constructed using solid sheet board. This material is suitable for most domestic low intensity applications, should you require more heavy duty use, simply reinforce with additional boarding, this should be simple to source after purchase
Features
Great for storing bikes or scooters but throw open the double doors and you will be amazed at what else it will swallow! Barbeques, trampolines and other outdoor toys can be securely stowed away during the winter months, ready for action again in the spring. Easy to erect with two people in less than a couple of hours.
Treatment
To help during construction and transport to you the building has been pre-treated with a dipped, base coat, timber preservative treatment. To comply with the warranty and finish the building in style, we recommend that a further treatment is carried out following construction, and thereafter on an annual basis, to prolong its life.

Not even that cheap! Easy to build something much better yourself for less - just pay a visit to your local timber merchant.

\i have one and i fully agree. Expensive for the crap it is, and like someone else said, it would actually be cheaper and quicker to buy some wood and build your own. Won't buy from these again.

Easily. You can google and find basic shed designs, but if you want whats on offer here I'd suggest just going to your nearest B&Q and looking inside to see the basic construction. The sides are basically a timber batten frame with weatherboard on top. Use OSB for the roof and base. Easier to do a pent style roof unless you have a major preference. Stand the base on some battens you can replace when they eventually rot. Nail some roofing felt on the roof. Not much more to it than that.
Buy properly graded treated timber from a timber merchant though not B&Q.
Sorry, but I don't have the time to do a step by step.
Only problem is that as soon as you start putting some effort in to it you'll want to build something better than this. As has been pointed out these are really cheap and nasty so rather than spending less to build the same I'd spend the same and build something better.
In no time I'm you'll be planning a 12'x8' superstructure!
You can buy a book on amazon for less than a tenner if you really need a blow by blow with diagrams etc.
