1.5% quidco too - not much but will pay part of the £5.80 delivery.

Thanks. Just what I was looking for. £112 in Argos

if first time putting one up, you might read that you should dig a whole and put cement down. For regular punters it's easier and just as functional to level off the ground by diging out a bit and putting sand over the surface and then throw a few paving slabs on top.

Also beware this doesn't come in big large panels - it comes with a million screws and quite a few smaller sized panels - a good day for assembly and a few hours to get the ground ready beforehand. I am assuming it is the same as the metal shed I put up a few years ago that has done me proud.

great price

Hi all,
Interested in getting a metal shed - to replace 2 wooden ones I have - and I see that Homebase have a 10x8 version of this one at not too bad a price. I am confused about a floor for these things though, in as much as I understand they do not come with one, has anyone had experience of fitting these to an existing concrete base and do they leak through the floor etc. Homebase also has a metal shed complete with the floor - is it worth going for that instead?
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Do you get the shelving inside that's shown on the photo?

Not sure if I like these or not, they look a bit ugly compared to a painted timber one.

Be prepare to lose your weekend if you get one of these!!! We got the slightly larger one and it took 2 days to put together! We put it directly onto tarmac, but put down some plastic ground sheets first for it to stand on and so far everything we've put in it seems ok.

Not sure if I'd buy another one, as someone said, they don't look as nice as the wooden ones.

Be aware that these aren't always that sturdy if your garden is prone to high winds. A solid base is a must or there is a good chance the wind will get under the edge and wreck the shed. I had this happen to me and it folded like cardboard.

Very practical advice :-)

I would also add lay plastic sheeting under the slabs to keep the perennial weeds from growing through, and up the sides too

shed looks good, but need one slightly larger...say 8 x 6...anyone got any ideas where to get a good deal?

BE WARNED! These sheds come in small pieces with hundreds of screws. Will require a lot of patience and time to put together and will require a sturdy base to attach it to. It does look good when completed but it does dent very easily. I would spend a bit more and get one that comes in larger pieces. I wouldn't recommed these sheds at all in fact i would rather die than put another one of these things together.

I think we get the point now :oops:

Best advice i can give is, dig a hole & put the shed in it, put cement on top.

Would rather stick needles in my eyes, that put one of these together.

any one know of any deals on a wooden shed about the same size?

Steer clear of these. They might as well be made of cardboard. Not sturdy at all and very ugly.

Also....... I would rather rub my eyes with a splintered stick than put one of these together.

jUST PUT MY 8x6 one together from argos that was reduced to 199. Yes a lot of pieces but goes togethe extremely well IF you read the instructions. Will probably put mine on concrete slabs on top of the concrete ground out the back to keep the water out. The argos ones are also wood panel look.

You need an anchor kit with these otherwise the wind can move and damage them, and you can seal the inside edge of the floor to base of shed with silicon to stop water ingress.
If you find flat pack furniture a piece of pee to assemble then you will be ok assembling this...

ive had a 8ft x 4ft metal lean shed that cost me neary £275.00. Just moving and selling mine on ebay now. I agree about the comments that it takes a while to put together but i did mine in a afternoon its a bit fiddly and it helps to have two pairs of hands but once all screwed together i screwed mine down with anchor bolts and its rock solid.

So......are these things easy to put up or what :whistling:

The floor that it comes with will probably be some wood and flooring cut to size, just to save you having to buy product and cut to size yourself.

I've put a few of these things up and just put in floor using own materials.

Word of warning with these, the word galvanised does not mean much in the cheapos, so don't be surprised if you have an eye sore in a few years....can be dependent on where you live too.

Yes i've noticed there isn't any mention of how long they are guaranteed for.... with other metal sheds i've seen (Shedstore etc) they are always guaranteed for 10 or more years against rusting.

I've got the exact same one in our garden, I bought it for about £100 (luckily it was ex-display so was already assembled). For the base I just plonked 6 3'x3' paving stones down and screwed it to each one.

That was 2 years since and I've had my fence panels blown off twice but the shed's never moved, because it's raised slightly the rain doesn't get in either and it still looks like new. I expect it'll outlast a wooden one and it shouldn't need repainting or re-felting.

Does dent quite easily though, not very secure either and the sliding doors can be a pain if something falls over and wedges behind one but if your tidy it's fine for storing cheap stuff in.

BTW it's not ugly, it's just a shed.

Mine blew away last winter, right over the garden fence it went just missing the car.

Takes about 4 hours straight putting one up. Quality is ok and they don't leak.

Good product - hot.

FFS... my parents just paid over 2 grand for their shed (it's made of stone) to replace their wooden one that lasted 10 years... kept saying that they could keep buying a new one now and again and still save loads, but would they listen? Would they f***.

Discount code not working, any others available??

Get yourself to Costco, if not a member grab someone who is and go for the 6 x 4 Keter plastic shed.

Far more sturdy, comes with floor, easy to erect (some of the larger ones can be a slight pain), easy to clean and wont discolour/rust.

Cost you a few quid more, perhaps about £40 but you will save that it time spent erecting and painting in a few year!

Why spammed and expired. Its still in stock!!

If anyone buys this be aware the dimensions on Homebase site are all wrong.

I just started to put it up and realised it's not 6x4 at all, its 4x6, which makes a substantial difference as to where the door is.

The gap I was to put it on is around 7' wide so a 4' shed leaves plenty of room with the door at the end.

With a 4x6 and keeping the door at the end I only have 12" gap, useless.

It is only 4' deep, and as I wanted it for my motorbike it just won't fit.

It's going back Saturday !!

NB if you do want it the real dimensions are as per the same item at Argos,

# Door opening size (H)158, (W)74cm / (H)5ft 2in, (W)2ft 5in.

# External size (H)182, (W)183, (D)123cm / (H)5ft 11in, (W)6ft 0in, (D)4ft 0in.

# Internal size (H)180, (W)169, (D)107cm / (H)5ft 10in, (W)5ft 6in, (D)3ft 6in.

# Overhang dimensions (W)1, (D)4cm.

# Manufacturer's 10 year no rust perforation guarantee.

Still on the lookout for a 6' deep shed with a decent door opening at a bargain price obviously.
