About this product
This YardMaster 8 x 6ft metal shed is perfect for general storage in your garden or back yard. The tall end gables mean there's excellent standing room inside (192cm max internal height) as well as extra storage space. 2 sliding doors give you easy access to your contents, wide enough when both open (102cm) to take a bike or lawnmower. Slots along the eaves ensure your shed is always well ventilated. In classic cottage green with a subtle eggshell finish, this shed blends perfectly into any garden setting and will look great for years to come.
Metal sheds don't come with a floor. They should be built directly onto a strong, level base such as concrete, paving slabs or tarmac, then anchored to it using the anchor fixings provided. This base is the floor of your shed. The anchor points are pre-drilled for your ease. Using these is an integral part of the shed's stability. This base is not supplied. An anchor kit is included.
Do not place directly onto a base of grass, earth, sand etc. As natural movement will affect the stability, reduce lifespan and cause the doors to warp. 2 people are required for assembly and we strongly recommend you use thick gloves when assembling the panels.
Once built, this YardMaster shed requires zero maintenance or further treatments. Its hot dipped galvanised steel construction makes it durable and weather resistant. This means you'll never have to paint it or worry about rot or rust. It comes with a 15-year UK manufacturer's anti-rust guarantee.

Would not buy again too flimsy
the roof design is poor for rain! leaking is a problem.
Looks great! Mission to put together
Terrible instructions... says 4-6 hours to put together. If you have no diy experience plan for 7-9 hours minimum. We were lucky and had amazing weather and got it done in 8.5 hours. Definitely could not have done it without our drill driver.
It would be best to use freestanding shelves rather than drill holes into the metal walls.
Thank you for using Argos Q&A.

Shouldn’t be too difficult with a bit of diy nous but not as simple as with a wooden shed. You need nuts and bolts and be aware of causing leaks.

The small print
All sheds need to be placed and secured on a base; this can be concrete, patio slabs or wood. Putting your shed directly on the ground wouldn't be safe and would decrease the lifespan of your shed.
