Yes, this is a very small shed, tiny infact!

I’ve been looking for a small apex shed so that I can buy 3 of them to line up in my garden and paint to look like a row of beach huts.

I nearly gave up on the idea when I saw that most places sell this size of shed for £150 - £200 each

Then I can across this one for £100 (£90 if you’re a member of Wickes Trade Pro).

It comes with a 15 year guarantee.

I can personally vouch for the quality of this - it is very sturdy and definitely far better made than the last shed I bought!

Despite being small the total weight is 75kg.

Seems to be be plenty of stock around.

Hope this is useul to somebody.

You’re a bit late to the party today.

Very unpleasant personal comments about someone else were posted here earlier, which have since been deleted. It was not aimed at me or my post, but I couldn’t stand to let it continue.

Im not bothered about heat, I just posted something I spent hours researching for myself yesterday, if it helps one other person than great. If not that’s fine too.

Constructive critisism is always welcome, but personal attacks are not.

If bullies are allowed to post whatever they want on here, do you think this website will survive and prosper? Or perhaps people just won’t bother with the the hassle.

Why do some people feel the need to be so unpleasant? If the deal isn’t for you, then just move on.

It certainly makes me think twice about posting a dealon here again.

I’d definitely paint these as the treatment on them will be minimal!


I was told to never paint a shed, as once water gets behind the paint it gets stuck and rots the timber, always use a stain that gets adsorbed deep into the wood.

Would probably make a good changing room near a hot tub

Supposedly they come with a 15 year treatment guarantee.

Although I agree some extra coats can’t hurt.

A lot of modern treatments don’t work anymore since the EU banned all the chemicals that work to preserve wood.

That may have been true but these days there are many products specifically developed for this purpose such as wilko.com/en-….ds

Thanks OP heat added, they look like a good make (Rowlinson) and the wood is pressure treated, good for a small space or as you say in a row.

Give it a few coats of used engine oil, or “lung syrup” as my Dad called it.
do you have to put this together or is it ready made? thanks

It’s in flatpack form, but the door is already attached on its hinges in the doorframe, so it’s not as deconstructed as other sheds I’ve erected. I can’t imagine it will take too long to put up (famous last words)!
3' x 4'. Which one is the width? Seems alot of money. Even beach huts are bigger than this.

Don't let them get you down......It's so easy to be an obnoxious arse when it's so easy to hide...Just remember that they're arses and have to live with that for their life... you however can enjoy life without being an obnoxious arse to others.

They will work for a while but if you neglect it and it starts to peel water will get trapped under the paint and it will bubble. Once you start painting there is no going back as it's only covering the surface you need to ensure it remains watertight.

I guess I’ve not had that problem as I use proper stuff and don’t neglect it, always give it a top up couple of coats every 3-4 years to keep it fresh. Always looks good! Ive built several sheds over the years made to measure at my last house and last year a log store in this house.

You'll see from the product photo that it's a rectangle so its 4 ft on the door side and 3 ft front to back. Don't take a cat in there... 🏻
