I wouldn't touch this with a barge pole. I had the 6x8 double.door one. Erected in September, collapsed and bent to hell by February in the winds. Panels are bent and torn despite being described as "practically indestructible". Worst purchase I've ever made and a case of style over substance. It's now in bits behind my new WOODEN shed which is much better.
Looking at the main pic for the post, would make a wonderful den for a Tron fanclub. Though it might be a tad large for that purpose. Not voting heat-wise.
Reduced to £519 on amazon 8ftx10ft - we paid £625 for the same one last week. Free delivery.
Eat some Weetabix (y)
do not buy this shed, it has issues to close the door properly when itvis windy day! Voted cool
I always cut some additional batons for the base to give a bit more support. cant fault the company on delivery and customer service though.
I've recently bought a Waltons 8x8 corner "premier" summerhouse (via Shedstore). The initial delivery was very quick (within a couple of days) and the delivery driver was very helpful in shifting the larger panels through a neighbour's garden. However one of the window panels wasn't constructed properly and was distorted enough to crack the window pane. Arranged for a replacement (via Shedstore customer support, who were very helpful - no complaints there), but Waltons decided to send the replacement panel via a TNT courier -with no protective wrapping - and by the time that got to me it was smashed to bits. It took about a month to resolve it and finally get a proper replacement. In that time I had to try and call Waltons customer support directly several times, which is pretty much impossible as either they don't answer their phones, or you get put on hold for 30+ minutes, or cut-off. Then they don't seem to know what's going on in their own place e.g they promised me one delivery which never turned up at all. There were other problems with the summerhouse too. e.g the supplied door handles were such poor quality that one just fell apart in my hands. They supplied 7.9m of (poor quality as someone else has said) roof felt, but 9.7m was required. The assembly instructions tell you to use the wrong sized screws in many places i.e. too short to actually do anything, and didn't provide enough screws or fittings. Wouldn't buy a Waltons shed/summerhouse again.
I have yet to see a shed delivered built, personally I feel part of the fun is building it but I understand it's not everyone's cup of tea.
Metal shed at same size and price (no floor). May help someone http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Arrow-Apex-Metal-Garden-Shed-8-X-6FT-/331151570246?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_3&hash=item4d1a2bf546
Utter junk, by the time you add the upgrades necessary to make this half way useful you'd be as well buying something decent!! Go to a sawmill and order a quality built shed!!
Yikes, I'd made a mental note of this thread when you posted and was impressed. I am now ready to buy my shed but boy am I glad I revisited this. Back to square one! There are some nice one's on ebay but once again I'd want something with some customer support. I think I'll try an buy local. (Bucks). Kamal
serves you right for hijacking my thread :)
Well I did recommend Urban Forest Timber Buildings but I would not now. After 9 months the roof is leaking! And I paid for a thicker roof too... And they will not fix it saying their warranty is 3 months. Clearly they do not care about consumer statutory rights.
Agreed about the overlap sheds being low quality, but at least this is straight edge timber and not the "rustic" or waney edge stuff that is truly shocking quality with big holes you can see through where it doesn't line up. I have had some good experiences with http://www.gardenbuildingsdirect.co.uk/Sale in the past with there tongue and groove sheds, everything is free delivery and the better quality flooring is definitely worth the extra over OSB sheet, but really get a sheet of marine ply or similar and make your own base is the best advice
Not Expired. Still Available.
I used to work for them, these can be odd shades of creosote and ill fitting panels which were put to one side or repaired from summer stock. The plus side is that they are, (or used to be) all wood not chipboard floors as i have seen from other manufacturers. These are also the same as have been sold by B&Q and Argos in the past
Apologies,just looked at the delivery page on site and my postcode is in the free delivery zone.
You did keep the shed inside presumably? I think that the guarantee states that it's only valid if the shed is kept flatpacked and indoors. :D

Used waltons before and found them to be good value But now they won't let Irish customers pay in sterling but we are forced to use their Irish site which adds a whopping 25% plus onto the sterling price Anybody know any other uk sites that will ship to Ireland?
Also look on tesco direct as they do Walton sheds cheaper. i got this 6x4 shed http://www.waltons.co.uk/wooden-sheds/6-x-4/waltons-somerset-double-door-shed-4x6 from tesco for £199 were it was £235 direct from Walton
