Overall I'm happy with this shed

I am happy with this shed as I think it fitted gap in the market being 8'x3' my criteria was a shed of this exact size with sliding doors due to the space available, as far as metal sheds go it was fairly simple to construct although there were 4 holes left in the roof due to mass production but this was easily overcome by filling them with the huge amount of spare bolts ect left over. There was marks scuffs and scratches on certain panels out of the box which was dissapointing however most of them could be placed on the side or back where they cannot be seen once erected.

Karen Fletcer Asked:

What size should the concrete base be?

We Replied:

Dear Karen Thank you for your question. The base size of this shed is 234cm (7ft 8ins) x 82cm (2ft 8ins). We would recommend this size for the concrete base with perhaps a few extra inches either side to give it maximum stability. 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
