Look good and seems sturdy
7 Mar 2013

" The shed arrived flat packed obviously and did seem daunting at first...however I set about putting a slab base down and began systematically assembling the shed following the directions to the letter.After 3 days the shed was built by me alone in the great British weather .
I found the assembly tyricky at times but then again I am a plumber not shed specialist.
I wouldn't suggest attempting this project without a good DIY knowledge as a minimum as it requires patience and a bit of skill....saying that everybody has commented how smart it looks and I am very happy with it.

Not what I expected

" My experience with this shed is not a good one
starting from the delivery. After waiting 13 working days I was told by txt on a Tuesday (rather than asked) that my shed would arrive the next day... I do have a job...
I was disappointed that every single panel and support was scratched even though the packaging box was fine. Whilst this does not affect the functionality it gave the impression that these sheds are not manufactured in a place where quality goods come from. It seems they just throw this piece of kit around the floor before you get it.
The colour is much lighter than the picture but I actually prefer it. Plus the roof is not a very nice galvanised aluminium colour.
Construction is difficult and very time consuming. The instructions start off well taking you through each stage step by step. Then suddenly the instructions take giant leaps forward in the construction without adequate explanation or illustration. It was shockingly bad and as if the illustrator got bored or gave up.
My brother (an engineer) and I are very experienced in flat pack construction and general DIY and we found this shed tricky. We even had to drill some misaligned holes, and it has been a long time since I have needed to that on something pre engineered. We checked, double checked and triple checked before we did this. Simply bad manufacturing (note: my concrete base was 100% level).
Another very important point is that this shed cannot be built into a corner position. You absolutely need access to all 4 sides when building. Then get 4 people to lift and drop into position (Actually quite light with 4 people)
A small point, but one of annoyance, is they stick all the part's reference numbers on the external sides. So now I need to peal of 10's of small sticky labels off. So get out you solvent if you buy this.
Now the shed is constructed it seems sturdy and looks nice despite the scratches. Although I believe I will need to silicone some screws holes (not related to above) "

Metal shed

" As per the first review the instructions are very poor, but with a lot of patients the shed was built. Another downside is my shed has not got any door supports which was not noticed to the end of the build "

Shame about the doors
21 Apr 2013
By

" Dreadful instructions, glad we had a huge amount of experience with flat pack furniture before attempting this shed. With creativity we had it up in about a day. Best bit of advice in the instructions was not to build on a windy day! Having completed the shed, the doors are extremely badly designed and are very difficult to get open and closed, which undermined the whole product. For the price, it is okay and does look nice. "

" This shed is flimsy & arrived poorly packed & tatty condition. Some of the screw holes were over sized, In my opinion some were caused by rags on the tooling, & others by having had screws in them previously. This leads me to believe that this shed had been returned from another customer. Yardmaster deny this. I am still waiting for the 2 pots of touch up paint they were supplying, which has supposedly been sent out on two occasions. I would have returned it, but I took advantage of a weather window, & laid the base down, before properly inspecting the whole pack. By the time you add on the cost of the mastic etc. for sealing the unit & the timber & insulation materials, a very good timber shed could have been supplied & erected for less. "

A very poor shed

" I would not recommend anyone buy this shed. Not only could I not get any tradesperson to touch it in terms of assembly (all said very bad experiences with them), but it suffers from such severe condensation that it sometimes is "Raining" inside it !
It also leaks through the roof as the roof panels draw in water between them by capillary action(there is no seal between them). I used four tubes of silicon trying to waterproof it where it joins the base, but there is a design flaw in the door assembly - it collects water and feeds it inside. Padlock point is plastic - so not worth using. Totally unfit for purpose. "

Worst product ever purchased

" Yardmaster metal shed, looked sturdy thought would be pretty easy to put together, but some panels where scratched, pre-drilled holes did not match up when putting together. Instructions poor. Would NOT recommend to anybody. I am a builder and still struggled to put together. "
