About this product
This YardMaster 8 x 7ft metal shed gives you a sturdy and maintenance free space which is perfect for garden storage or doing DIY. The tall end gables mean there's good standing room inside (192cm max internal height) and give you 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 well ventilated. The silver resin finish means it will suit the back yard or in the garden and will keep its fresh looks for years.
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 10-year UK manufacturer's anti-rust guarantee.

An interesting experience with machine cut steel
Shed is machine cut steel, which adds to the challenge! Wherever there are two or more parts that need to be put together they don't always quite fit needing some tweaking, this happened often. The worst part is the roof which is hard to put together and will leak rainwater unless the screws and washers are seated correctly and tight which is impossible to see until it rains so be aware of this. Given the price and that the manufacturer is meant to be a market leader this is disappointing.
good looking shed
Shed looks great but not easy to build, the screws look the same even tho there is a few types, not easy to tell the difference. Very small screws and things that look like nuts anyone who build this will need someone with small fingers. Once you get over that bit went together well and looks great in my garden.
The shed was very flimsy
I had a builder to put the shed together & he said it was very flimsy & a lot of the parts to put together & were not numbered + a lot of parts missing so i had to return it & buy an alternative

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.
