Yardmaster Shiplap Sliding Door Apex Shed 10 x 6 x
apex metal shed
product rather flimsy , manufacturing is a joke
none of holes line up so you have to drill your own, how it gets out of fatory like this god only knows. paying Â£430 i expected something abit more professional .if i had paid half that i would probably still be dissapointed if you have had no experience in engineering you could be in trouble ...my advice is steer clear. took two of us 12 hours .
However if it was to go together without any
self manufacuring and no drilling needed , could be a nice product. someone needs to get it sorted

Yardmaster Shiplap Double door
2 man 6 hours according to instructions.
Written by Hans Christian Anderson.
As an experienced handyman I found the instructions very confusing. With the help of my 2 sons, (both buildrs) we ploughed on regardless.
Screwholes not lining up or not drilled out, we made our own holes. Shortage of screws was overcome by using rivets. This made for a much stronger building. Thieves could get in by simply unscrewing the panels. Rivets fixed this security problem. Metal door handles were also fitted and fixed with security bolts.
Theives had only to saw through the plastic handles to get in.
The flimsy doors were beefed up with extra supports on the insides. The door runners were terrible. Again, we made our own.
Would I buy another? I may be mad but definately not stupid.
make sure you have a first aid kit available due to the many sharp edges.

Holes missing @ inaccurate
Had to purchase more screws
Make all washers type 14 and screws type 2.
Sliding door very flimsy and crude noisy runners, with plastic padlock brackets.
One anchoring screw snapped.
Overall appearance is good, but time will tell.

Yardmaster Shiplap Shed
Overall the Shed once assembled is very robust.
Instructions are a nightmare very confussing with very poor written instruction.
Packaging is a waste of time as many panels have scratches on them, insufficient packing between layers, With a 12 year anti rust gaurantee and many scratches i may have to test this out.
This really is a job for at least 2 people 3 if you can spare especially when assembling the frame and roof struts.
Put aside the whole weekend to complete this project.
