I've just bought this, as the next best price I can find seems £199. Reviews seem mostly OK.

The wall store is a functional and practical solution to garden storage problems and has ample height and width to accommodate an adult bike as well as a wide range of gardening tools and equipment.

Features
  • Lockable storage unit
  • Double doors for easy access
  • Tongue and groove floor
  • Solid board roof
  • Pressure treated against rot
  • Natural timber finish
  • Mineral roofing felt
  • Seasonal Effects On Timber: Wood is a natural material and therefore may be affected by changes in the weather conditions. During periods of high temperatures and excessive dry spells its moisture content will reduce which may lead shrinkage of some components resulting in small cracks or splits, once a spell of wet weather returns the components will again regain its moisture and the component will return to their original size. Splitting will be more prevalent in larger sections of timber and will not affect its structural stability of the product. This process cannot be avoided, but effects can be reduced by spraying water directly on to the product during periods of hot weather.

Product Details
  • Wood Species: Softwood

  • Wood Treatment: Pressure Treated

  • Cladding Style: Tongue & Groove

  • Floor Included: Yes

I think if someone wanted to steal your bike that shed wouldnt really stop …I think if someone wanted to steal your bike that shed wouldnt really stop him to do it...but it might be ok to protect bikes and tools from weather conditions etc

The other sex steal too, don't discriminate

Good for the price, but doors will sag if you don't add extra battening, and get an extra 2 hinges as the 4 supplied are pretty naff and will bend. The so called "roofing felt" is appalling and they deliver it folded which is even worse!

Go buy some decent thick felt and tack over the top of the "tissue paper" they supply. I wouldn't bother locking it as it'll get smashed open in seconds. Instead, leave it unlocked and just a hole in the back or floor just big enough for the appropriate wall or floor anchor.

Would seem a waste of £134.99 to me.
Hmmm, it doesn't look like the most secure storage? Might be okay if it's out at the back of your house though, the Asgard ones look like the best option but are really pricey
Handy for log storage maybe

True, but it's better than nothing if you don't have a garage, etc. You could always pop a hole through the floor and put a ground anchor into a concrete base.

Agreed, this is not going to stop some scummy scrote stealing your bikes et. al.,
Its only use is to protect your bike/tools or what ever you store in it from from the weather.
Heat from me, not seen this cheap & been looking on and off for a while. Even el cheapo eBay ones have a snag e.g. no floor! These are pressure treated too. I've ordered one, if anyone else does I'd recommend these wickes.co.uk/Onduline-Green-Corrugated-Bitumen-Sheet-950-x-2000mm/p/240059 (can buy in black too) much better the ordinary roofing felt although there are some quite good heavy decorative felts if that's your thing, m.ebay.co.uk/itm…rue

If someone wanted to steal your bike or tools I doubt most sheds would stop them.
Bike insurance policies tend to cover you so long as your bike is stored in a locked shed. This won't stop a theft, but at least you won't be out in the cold as a result.
I could do with a wooden gazebo for the hot tub, any advice regarding building one, or could I buy a couple of these sheds and improvise? Its to go on a concrete base. Need to cover 2m square.

You may as well get a cheap plastic sheet to protect your bike and tools from the weather.
This shed has "steal me" written all over it. I would NOT store my road bike in there if it was FREE.
Judging by house prices round here my bike shed is worth about £50,000. It is my back room. I wouldn't leave anything valuable in a wooden shed.

Don't confuse being honest with negativity.

Just because it's a lower price doesn't make it a good deal. As I've already explained, I wouldn't use the "bike shed" if it was given for free let alone ~£135, and as others have commented...a waste of money! Kiss your bike goodbye + £135. Bonkers.
Safe enough to keep a gas BBQ in when in use?
My experience of Wayfair after 2 purchases: the quality is not great. Both times I asked for a return I was asked if they gave me a discount would Ikeep it. Customer Service is spot on (maybe because in USA) was given refund before item picked up.

if you are spending over £150 go to voucher box.co.uk and search wayfair. Once link activated and you make the purchase they send you £10 PayPal about 2 days later - beat that Quidco and TCB

Got an Asgard myself. Would recommend.
Handy enough for the bikes thieves, just take the shed with the bike inside it, and anything else inside is a bonus!
I bought it only to find out that those 2 bikes were not included in the price. Beast from the East cold - alike cold from me!
wow looks smart!

Thanks for posting. Ordered one. Just what I was looking for at a good price. Ideal for garden stuff - not valuable, just want to keep stuff dry.
If it's like the cheap shed I bought online, the quality wont be great. No strength to the construction at all. But after I built it I supplemented the interior with wood from a couple of old pallets I took apart and used these to strengthen the door and door frame (and windows , but not applicable with this of course). Its pretty good now, but only after a lot of extra effort.

A shed for wooden bikes?

Great! I'll pop along to bamboobicycleclub.org/ and start building then...
Could be used as a wheelie bin store. Heat
Buy some good quality wood and make it yourself. Half the price too
Save yourselves a load of cash and park the bike in your hall. Invest in a plastic polythene sheet to protect the floor. You’re got more chance of keeping hold of your bike.
Bought one of these a couple of years ago. Really cheap quality. Delivered on the wrong day and left on my front drive in the rain all day.
How many bikes would this store?

How many bikes would this store?


Apparently 3 if they’re slim, though 2 would be a better bet. However, once they all get nicked in one swoop the answer is none
Took the plunge and bought at this price. Shed was delivered promptly but only 3 of the 4 sections, last section turned up 2 days later. As a good will gesture I have been credited with £25 into my Wayfair account and am considering another unit. My only grumble is that the sides are secured to the base of the shed with 9 of 30mm nails...through shiplap! Not ideal. Its my intention to buy inch 90 degree brackets and secure the internal frame to the base that way. Oh - photocopy the instructions because the print out they provide wears/fades quickly.

You’ll spend £100 easy on wood and then you need to cut it to fit and buy the fixings. Rarely can you build a shed for as cheap as you think
