Pretty good shed

The shed is what I needed. A bit bigger both ways than the one it replaced. The instructions were quite good and all the bits were there. I have a tub full of self tappers, nuts & Bolts left over, so no need to worry there. My only problem is that the people that you order from take no responsibility for delivery dates. In the end it arrived a month after expected. All the other sites either said out of stock or for delivery much later. I don't know ifor the ship stuck in the suez canal was to blame, but I would have preferred some honesty about likely delivery dates.

Questions and Answers (4)
Sim Asked:

Which floor kit do I need to locate this shed on grass?

We Replied:

Dear Sim Thank you for your question. The wooden floor kit is easy to build and you can put that on the grass (although slabs/gravel are ideal to avoid any sinkage) and then you put the shed on top of the wooden floor. Alternatively, you would have to dig up the grass and put down the metal foundation kit and flood with concrete to create a hard standing floor. Use a damp proof membrane when using a metal foundation kit. Should you wish to contact us further or to place an order, please call us on 0121 355 7701. Thank you for using our online Q&A system.

Is the width 6ft or the depth? Do we have to buy a floor kit or can we mange without?

We Replied:

Dear Toni Thank you for your question. The 6ft side is the width, which is the front with the door as shown in the image Additional floor/base accessories are not essential if you have a solid concrete, paved, patio or decking The shed can simply be installed on top of this and the rim of the shed bolted down to secure it to the ground. The optional Metal Foundation Kits can be purchased if you wish to raise the interior floor of the shed (useful in gardens where water clogging may be an issue) and the metal frame allows you to fill the intersections with concrete to create a sturdy and solid floor for the shed, or alternatively use floor boards (not supplied) over the top of the frame to create a wooden floor inside your shed. The Timber Floor Kit is purchased when customers wish to place their shed onto a grass or soil, as it comes complete with spikes which are sunken into the ground and creates a sturdy timber floor base for which the shed can be situated on. I hope that this information helps. Should you wish to contact us further or to place an order, please call us on 0121 355 7701. Thank you for using our online Q&A system. Kind regards Lauren

Linda Barlow Asked:

I want to store a motorbike in this shed. As the insurance company insists on a locked garage that can't be moved, can it be bolted to flagstones?

We Replied:

Dear Linda Thank you for your question. Yes, flagstones are an ideal base area for the shed. The Hilti screw set that we sell as an accessory can be used to bolt the shed onto paving as long as the slabs are thicker than the Hilti screws which are 1.4 inches long. Should you wish to contact us further or to place an order, please call us on 0121 355 7701. Thank you for using our online Q&A system. Kind regards Lauren
