    I found shedstore very reasonable - you can get quidco too.

    I'd go for a shiplap rather than larchlap style. In my experience larch lap have a tendency to be more damp inside.

    cool. shedstore il see what there like

    Always buy one about 25% bigger than you think you'll need.

    You can always use the extra space - eg chest freezer, bikes, garden furniture etc.

    have you thought about a plastic one, I bought one & to be honest i was a bit dubious about getting one, i wish i had got one sooner. B&Q , Homebase & Argos do the Keterrange.Very easy to build & they have their own floor as well, Ive had no problems with sweating or any leaks at all.

    Keter are extortionate though rich, £550 for an 8x8. Metal is the cheaper option - I'm getting one next summer, 13x11 for £350.

    yeah they are pricey, but I was looking for something that was going to last a long time & low maintenance , I was looking at metal, but I'd heard they suffer from bad condensation, not sure how true this is.
