Anyone comment on if these are any good?
Metal sheds = Marmite
Heat added as its a great price
Metal sheds = condensation = you'll regret it! Most are a massive pain to build too - and you'll need a solid base to put it on (usually don't have a floor). Those pictures make it look way bigger than 8x6 too.

you could try landscape mode or zoom in, works for me!
I've had one and the Inside Condensates and drips water all over your stuff. I would not buy one again.

You could line it with wood and add ventilation - but if buying a new one best just to get a wood one to start with!
I have a 10*8 version of this.
On the whole, it’s ok. Few things to mention.
They are a bit of a pig to assemble and once done can leak a little where the fixing screws are situated on the roof.
Mine doesn’t appear to suffer much from condensation.
The biggest issue though is the lack of headroom, check the door height, plus inside it is quite low.
I ended up mounting mine on railway sleepers to give it more height and I still bump my head inside (I am 6’4”) occasionally.
They get ridiculously hot in the summer

Yeah I thought about lining it or putting insulated roof panels on, but I couldn't be bothered and sold it after a few months.
The metal is real thin and flimsy. I would pay more and get a wooden one.
I had this

It’s probably about half a days work between two people. Not had trouble with ventilation although I was very prepared for this and had these at the ready

I mainly had trouble with leaks, so you need a silicon gun, had to go around where the shed meets concrete base inside and out and then the roof.

You’ll also need some L shaped brackets to anchor the shed (not included). These were £1 odd from wickes and it’s solidly anchored on each corner

I also stuck two of these bad boys to the top and bottom of the door.

Used the thickest locks I could find. Then I have anything of value motorcycle ground anchored to the concrete base with tamperproof anchor and locks (and alarmed). So any light fingered person is going to have a struggle

For inside I got these. Two of them bolted together length ways fit perfect (holes already pre-drilled). They are real sturdy and between them hold 400kg. They were £10 when bought them but at £12 they are still a steal now. I went mad and got them in the loft and inside cupboard under the stairs (you can shorten height) really versatile.

On the whole I have been happy. No upkeep needed. No signs of rusting (we are probably only 6 months in).

Photo making it look bigger than it is they give you the dimensions for a reason not to base it off a photo! “Yeah looks like it will fit in there...”
