New large shed needed - help and advice much appreciated!
Hello again everyone
We have two metal sheds in our back garden that the previous owners put up. We cant stands the things! They are noisy, leaky, full of condensation, and the larger of the two is very warped and the doors fall off…. all.the.time.
So we'd like to replace the large one with a wooden shed, and probably just loose the smaller one and create a nice decked space eventually with planters etc. They are both situated on concreted slabs, with the walls sitting on a perimeter of bricks (which I assume we'll need to knock down to bring the concrete level.
But we are new to sheds! The large one is big, I just measured it vaguely to get an idea (not easy to be exact with a 7 month old trying to bang on the thing) - and it is just over 9ft by just over 12ft.
We are firm believers in not skimping with this stuff - but we also don't want to pay over the odds. I think we'd prefer a roof window rather than anything on the sides for security reasons - unless someone can suggest a way to make a normal window work? There is a cable sending electricity to the shed.
We don't have much (yet) to put in. A ladder, mower, some tools, a medium BBQ, the outside table and chairs in the winter months (they fold up). I also like my potting and growing so would like room for shelves for all that stuff!
What kind of price range would get us something substantial, to fit the bill? Is it best to try and find a place that supplies them built with shelves etc? Is roofing felt ok or are the alternatives worth springing for?
Sorry if all of this is a bit mediocre/silly to ask!
