At Garden Shed Reviews we don’t list pricing of the garden sheds we review for one simple reason. They would be out of date the second we publish the review and we would be constantly modifying our content to try and keep the pricing up to date.
Instead we price the garden sheds and garden buildings we review in a price category and provide you with a link to check the latest prices yourself, you can find this below.
Pros and Cons
- Slim profile
- Double opening doors
- Solid sheet roofing
- Sand felt roof
Upon initial inspection of this shed you will find that it is untreated and a little rough around the edges. The wood is a bit rough and will easily give you splinters if you are not careful. We would advise wearing gloves during assembly if you don’t fancy picking fragments of wood from your fingers for the next few days.
The wood itself is pretty solid, it has an overlap of 8mm between the panels and makes for a shed that is not only secure but also effective at keeping your items dry in the rain. The floor is made of a budget OSB, which whilst not the best material for longevity if placed on some paving slabs as an additional base suffices just fine.
Whilst the floor may not seem the best and the panels are a little rough round the edges, the shed itself when built is a pretty tough build. It fly’s through the wobble test with flying colours.
What is the wobble test, I hear you ask? Well from our experience building structures, sheds and outdoor buildings over the years the first thing we do upon completion is give the thing a good wobble. If it can’t stand up to our standard wobble test we either did something wrong or the shed isn’t fit for purpose. The wind will no doubt give your garden shed more than a good wobble over it’s time in your garden.
Strength and Safety
Due to this overlap wooden pent bike storage shed having an integrated floor and solid wood roof, the overall integrity and structure of the shed is pretty sturdy.
It would be easy to fasten a padlock and bracket to this shed to increase it’s security. Please bare in mind though that the entire front of this bike storage shed is made up from doors, no matter how good the lock is you could get a bar behind the doors should you so wish.
The slim profile and lack of windows make this overlap wooden pent bike storage shed great for being discreet and keeping prying eyes from looking in. We wouldn’t recommend keeping things of particularly high value in any shed and would always recommend that it’s contents form part of your house insurance.
Installation and Assembly
Whether you are building a plastic, metal or wooden shed or garden building you need to plan, prepare, allow plenty of time and be patient.
Building a shed or garden building of any size requires you to get your base level first, lay out all the components of the shed, check them off against the instructions and allowing plenty of time for construction. But there is more to it than that. Make sure you are prepared, do you have the correct tools to hand, are they charged if they are power tools, are there any overhanging trees in the way of where your plastic garden shed is going to be built?
This shed is likely to take you around an afternoon to build, most of the components are assembled and it needs merely piecing together. The instructions are fairly detailed and if followed correctly you should find a shed that looks just like the pictures.
This shed does require a coat of wood stain to protect it, as we would recommend with any un-treated sheds. Once you have treated it the feel of roughness, risk of splinters and overall smoothness of it’s look seem to fade away.
