      A shed for a man, or a woman, i'm not sexist, although no flowers please

      I have a couple of sheds in the garden, two good sized one and a smaller one which is ideal for certain garden implements such as rakes, hoes, spades etc. one of the sheds I have is a 10 by 8 foot overlap shed. Which really means that the wooden panels overlap each other from the top so that the water runs down and off the pieces.
      The entire unit was delivered to the road side, in pieces, which meant, I had to drag it round to the foundation that I had laid. I did have a bit of help moving it due to the fact that all but a few of the pieces are pretty wide, which makes it almost impossible to move on your own.

      So once in place I set about putting the wood bits together. Starting with the base being slapped onto the foundation, levelling it off. Then the rear piece went up, resting on one of the side pieces, the one that is solid as the other one has gaps for the windows. Then the front went on, adding the door onto that. Finally the roof went on, covered with the roll of roofing felt that came in the pack. All the pieces had struts on them in order for them to sit onto each other so you can get he screws in place.
      The shed took about ½ hour to put up, I have also put another two covering of roof felt on over the years I've had it so there's no chance of the roof leaking.

      The windows were all fixed, which meant that the door was the only way of getting air into the shed, which was a bit hot in the summer heat wave, so I spent a bit of time making a frame for the middle of the three windows in order to make an opening window.

      The wood goes from side to side, with the door having vertical pieces, which makes it stand out, although the three black hinges tell you it's a door.
      There was no lock on the door initially but it didn't take too long to bolt a new locking system onto it, a padlock and bracket.

      The shed cost me about £200 which was a good price for the size but as I had to add an open window and a lock on the door, I think £200 was about right.
      So if you're after a shed to get away from it all then get your self one of these. They are easy to put up, they are easy to paint and there's plenty of room inside.
