All Garden Furniture Discounts, Offers and Sale - October 2020
Brilliant price I picked one up yesterday 😁
£50 still seems expensive!
Paid £67 last week in Argos, great price!
These are garbage ! Clips break on the lids don't waste your money
We've got a couple of these. They are okay, but a bit of a bugger to put together. A bit flimsy, but ours are down the side of the house against the wall, which seems to help. They have been fine for storing a few folding garden chairs. It's a very good price if you want one.
Bought two of these exact models about a year or two ago. Positives: - Cheap for what you get - looks OK from a distance - Can sit outside all year around & seems rain & wind proof if the lid is weighed down. - Keeps clutter tidy - Decent size. One box fits our wooden fold down chairs (x4), the other gardening bits. Negatives: - lid bows, so corners lift and wind rain gets in & flips the lid over. Have to put weight on the sides & edges. I use an old wooden 3" square fence post to spread the weight over the edges. - Flimsy & thin, poor ribbing so flexes quite a bit. - Can't use it as a seat or store weighty items on top as it's too flimsy - Bit nerve wracking to put together. Feels like bits will snap, but once done & left alone its a bit more sturdy.
ordered, thanks Op
Is this not the regular price?
Unfortunately I don't have a garage so my shed is my main storage space. My tools, paint, all "I will use later on" kinda things. If I want something from the back of the shed first I need to remove stuff at the front 😏
May I ask what you put in your shed?
Same at homebase I think? https://www.homebase.co.uk/galvanised-steel-4-shelf-storage-unit_p374332
Does anyone know what the weight capacity is for these?
Thanks for posting and congratulations on your first hotukdeals post (y)
From memory that's right yep - they are just apertures
Looks really nice, but am I right in thinking there’s no way to close the windows?
Perfect for first time buyers. Where do I sign?
Suggested as a home office for the wife so as we WFH she can have her own space !... (if you dont hear from me after this post for a while expect the worst... and call for help).
£1700 rent PCM in Central London
I wasn't expecting such a useful reply. You're a legend! Thank you!
Mine came from another supplier but tounge and groove cabins are much of a muchness. I'd researched Tuin and Dunster house and mine came in exactly the same way those supplier would have. Mine built was 5x4m. The longest single component was just over 5 meters long. The pallet was 7 meters long, roughly 1 meter deep and 60 cm tall. Couldn't guess how large this one is but probably somewhere between 4 and 6m say depending how they choose to pack it. The courier called a week before delivery to agree a date and I was given the dimensions then. Moving that into my back garden on my own took around 3 1/2 hours. They tend to pack the windows and doors, partially built, in the middle of the pallet to protect the glass. Another thing to think about is how long your wood will be out of the pallet, particularly in the damp. If not piled properly the wood will warp, and while even bad warps aren't impossible to deal with they will slow you down.
Amazing thank you so much for your response! I won’t need to lift any more than about 80kg so won’t be getting near those double depth requirements! I’ll have a look through the link you posted and see if there’s any extras I should try and price in though.
Anyone know what this is like delivered? Want to order it and maybe self install a few days later and want to know if that's feasible. No idea how much space the packaging will take up.
That really depends on the width of the wood logs in the walls. 45mm thick is what's usually considered the mimimum for winter use. 75mm is as good as it gets but easily 3x this price. This cabins just in the category that would be considered usable in all 4 seasons assuming its 44mm, if its 35mm as per other comments I'm not sure. Mines 40mm and with roof and floor insulation and an 1.5kw oil heater is fine for daytime use. There are some useful articles on tuins website talking about the thermal values. The jist is if you insulate the floor and roof only you can cut around half the heat loss easily. Insulating the walls is harder, as the logs will move naturally over the seasons you can't just throw up insulation and sheet the inside walls without causing damage. Insulating the floor and roof is quite easily done and should be enough to make this livable in winter... you just need to give a little thought to how you are changing the height of the roof finishings. tuin.co.uk/blog/insulating-a-log-cabin-floor-and-roof/
Thank OP great for growing
Also catches butterflies, hoverflies, bees and other harmless or beneficial insects. I’d use something less indiscriminate personally.
I'm not repainting the house just for this.
Went this morning. None left.
Great deal if you can find it!
Yep, I used this on a kids playhouse, same panels as fences, took 4 coats!
They had Cuprinol 2.5 litre shades wood care for £4 (usually £22) in my local but only a few not so nice shades left. Ended up getting five tubs of Wilko own brand premium wood care 2.5 litre at £3.60 each from £12 in dark oak. There were still a few left when I left but I've got all I need for next year and hopefully won't get covered in algae like Ducks Back does in certain places. Mainly out of the sun. Don't be fooled by the "one coat" claim. Ideally you need three for a perfect finish but two coats at least. Over the years I fallen for the claim with all apart of paints. It gets them off the shelves.
Managed to grab few when it was marked down to 2. Store informed they usually don't stock this brand so it's clear out. Seems to be good according to one employee.
Thanks OP bought one there this evening
I've got to find room on here XD
Damn my glass surround balcony 😔. Heat added, definitely a steel 😜 at £20 🔥.
The best way to save your space is not buying at all :p
Ordered (y) thanks
Ordered, thank you :-)
Looks ok on Argos website. Fact that it’s metal not the usual plastic outdoor stuff is a bonus especially for £15. Can keep in storage until next Spring. Am tempted. Heat added. Thanks OP.
Thank you OP, just ordered for my little girl for next Summer (y)
Argos deliver from local stores, so there might be some available elsewhere, just not for your area unfortunately.
Not available for delivery to ... Looks like this is expired, assuming that if they had any left they would be able to deliver to Dorset.
Believe me, I've considered doing it myself but after "levelling" the ground to build a deck I decided groundwork isn't for me!
Concrete is easy. Just mix a load up and build a box for the base. What could go wrong?
I'd say at least twice a year.
Does anyone know how often this comes on offer? Roughly?
unfortunately it's no longer on offer now
Dammit.. missed it :-( it's no longer on offer
Sign up to the Costco online membership. Think its about £15 it then allows you buy things like this and their other offers (y)
Ummm'd and arr'd too long, looks like it's sold out now
Thanks ordered one
Thanks. Ordered 1
Back at £300 now
Showing 300 😡
Price is showing £299 for me?
Have this shed, it is about 4 years old and like new. I put board down to strengthen the floor also.
do tell :) !!
Quick question -would you recommend this shed to store a couple of decent mountain bikes in? I.e. any concerns regarding security? Cheers
I've had this exact shed for over 5 years now & it's been great. Not water ingress or condensation at all & that's surprising as I put it together myself. Like said above make sure it sits on a level base. The only slightly annoying thing this is you can't hammer nails into it to hang tools up etc like you could with a wooden shed.
Need a level base or the doors won't sit correctly. No condensation or leaks in mine(smaller version) , survived a branch from next doors tree falling on it this year.
Thanks got to agree with the Oakland....unfortunately I don't have the space for a large shed... Need to leave some space for kids play!
I don't have the one in the link, but to me the manor I have is excellent and is nice and sturdy, it has been up since February without any issues and the extra 2 foot of space (25%) I imagine would really come in handy. Edit: I also bought a Keter Oakland 11ft x 7ft 6 in Summer from Costco and whilst the Oakland is more solid, the Manor is more than solid enough for a shed and I am really pleased with it for the money.
Add some bags of sand or soil to the base to help with that.
Keep check on it may have bk in stock never now it just out stock
Aw, man - just clicked through and saw that this has now expired. Good deal, thanks for sharing your first post, @Col_J (highfive)
Sorry first post put on here lol it is half price ebay then with the voucher code it takes off another 15% taking it down to £55.24 if that makes more sense.
Bit confusing. Red price in OP shows as £129.99, headline calims it's £64.99, then in the body text of the OP it says that it's £55.24 (embarrassed)
It's actually 9L but still works out cheaper than this deal - 36p/l vs 33p/l.
£3 for a tub of 10L in B&Q Derby, many colours available
(y) Don’t worry no water gets in, I put a thick layer of marine ply down to protect the floor so things could be slid about, easy to do while building it
Do these base have any height to help prevent water getting in?
Don’t forget guys, there is a process to follow or you could regret it and have to take stuff apart to correct it, SO RTFM (y)
it's not plastic, it's composite ;)
I bought that one a couple of weeks ago and it's excellent. I like the way the plastic is made to look like wood, doesn't really look like a plastic shed.
