Rated 4 out of 5Â by sidsnanny Burn the instructions!
Firstly the instructions-find the box they are in, and then set fire to them!
Never seen instructions so poor. They tell you to put a part together with about 50 screws, then very soon, you will have to take all the screws out to join another part!!
Took us 2 days to complete.
Had to take the roof off and start again on day 2, because the Perspex sections threw it out, but didn't realise until we got to the last sheet and there was too much overhang!!
Stress, blisters, cuts, and almost divorce proceedings!!
However, when you have gone through the construction ordeal, it is a good sturdy shed.
Apart from the doors - they are rubbish. Flimsy, bendy and don't stay in the runners, and don't think oiling them as per instructions will work - it doesn't.
And the door height is way too low. Hubby and I have almost brained ourselves numerous times already (I'm only 5' 6")
Would never buy another one, unless I could afford to pay someone to put it up for me, but hope this one will last many years so we don't need to.
If it ever needs replacing however, I will spend the extra and get a timber one, purely because it would be easier to build.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by zeaphod Really rust proof
Bought over 10 years ago - and not a spot of rust anywhere. The exterior plastic trim has been affected by UV deterioration, which is to be expected. It has never leaked. If I could improve one thing, it would be the doors - they are a bit lightweight. Another strut or two inside would make them more rigid. Overall, a great product though.

Great shed but I've been in engineering for 44 years and have never seen plans like this before, they tell you to bolt or screw parts together only to find at a later date you have to remove them, it would be better if the plan gave you an assembly process rather than just showing you the bits and pieces. All In all the shed was assembled in about 18 hours with a lot of reassembly but at the end of it all its a good shed even though the door is a bit low.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Gottaloveashed Great storage
Bought this to store excess furniture . It's a challenge to erect. Previous Mecano experience a must! Needs 2 people, one to line holes up while the other drills. Took a full day, But once up it is roomy, light enough snd ours has just survived 2 gale force storms. No condensation issues so far, but we were very careful to keep it dry inside and it is raised off the ground with a moisture barrier under it. We will line the roof with polystyrene if it starts to get damp.
Great value- already paid for itself in saved storage costs, arrived quickly and delivered to position.
