where did you get it and how much?


Looking to get a shed for my FZS600, Size did you go for? I was going to get a 6x8 but it would appear this is two small so looking at other options.


Was it local bought or from a national seller?

Its 12x8, 8 wide & 12 long.& as you can see that doesnt leave a massive amount of space in front or behind the bike,the front wheel is just touching the shelving unit which is about 1.5 half feet wide, behind the bike there isnt quite enough space to squeeze round it with the doors shut.


I got it through a local hardwear seller whos now gone bust, to be honest it was a rip off,nigh on 900 quid :eek .


I spoke to my missus's brother whos a carpenter & its all down the sky high price of wood, he said he couldnt have done it himself for much cheaper, although im sure he woulda done a much better job.(getting him on the jobs the hassle).


I woulda had bigger but my garden is too small.it filled up quickly,bike stuff,trailer,kayaking gear,bbq stuff & patio set & suddenly the space was gone.


Best thing is the smell of petrol in a wooden shed! :)

Yeah i am going to have to look at getting some slabbing done but first i need to know the shed size, plenty cheap sheds out there but not worth the money according to reviews. I had looked at 10x9 but yours looks good enough space but not overly massive.

I went a bit overkill with the base,its sat on recycled wheely bin grids,ecobase i think its called,grids filled with gravel for drainage,ive then get large wooden battons,then the shed base.only the best for my fazer 8)

I dont think you can go wrong for that money.


My shed will have to last 2.5 times as long as it to justify my extra cost & im sure it wont.


You might need to do a bit o reinforcing on the floor though if its a bit paper thin, bit o ply,its almost essential to have a bit o ply down,not sure why but ive even seen a few folk with concrete garages putting down a bit o ply,jus coz they can i suppose :rolleyes ,soaks up the oil.
Title: Re: A man shed is born.
Post by: red98 on 24 May 2013, 12:09:46 PM
yeh....you`ll defo need to strenghten the floor to take the weight,most of it in a small area when on the side / centre stand,would suggest at least 18mm ply  :)

Youll need a ramp n'all,buying my folding ramp worked out cheaper than making my own outta wood, it's long so the gradient is small which makes it ideal for pushing the bike into the shed.


Heres a link just incase you need one.

Post by: Tefer on 24 May 2013, 02:55:49 PM
Cheers, I seen the ramp an forgot to ask about that, grandad is a dab hand at making things like that but may be easier to just buy in.


If the ground is slabbed underneath the shed i think a thin ply floor would do as all of the weight would be taken by concrete slabs.


back home to measure it out in the garden. Although its my garden i might run by neighbour as could be quite big.

Re the slabs, it depends if the shed you get has a raised floor rather than being flat on the ground.


Good idea checking with the neighbour, mine are cool but if someone gets arsey then theres only so much % space of a garden space that can be taken up by a shed,its usually set out in the title deeds of the house.


Good luck! 8)

Mine is 40' x 13' and I can only just fit my bike in it and have no room to work on it due to my car and caravan being in there I could just do with another 10' but then again I'm sure we all could.

the standard shed floor wont be strong enough on its own,the bike stand will eventually break through and the bike could fall over  :eek ....if you dont want the extra expense of strengthen the floor just bolt the shed to the slabs and do away with the shed floor   ;)

Post by: Dave48 on 25 May 2013, 07:58:51 AM
My back garden slopes  right to left, so laid a level concrete base. There is an air gap between shed floor & concrete foundation, shed is 10 x 8 & will take: 1 FZS 600;1 x FZS 1000; 1 x motorised cycle; all garden equipment. Have made shelves for various bottles,containers, lubes, etc.
In 10 years use have had to re-treat outside with creosote ( or equiv) 3 times. Made wooden ramp to ride into shed. Caution!- have to put extra thin block of wood under sidestand to spread load otherwise shed floor would split under pressure. Have replaced roof felt once & fitted "L" shaped brackets to inside of roof apex to prevent sag.
Don't have power/light installed as work done elsewhere.

Tad noisy when it rains but ive not come across any other downsides

Post by: jon on 25 May 2013, 07:49:04 PM
You gets what ya pay for! Personally, as an ex-shed build3r of 10 ish years, I wouldnt touch that billyoh shed with a bargepole. If you are having a large shed (10x8 or larger) you WILL need bearers of at least 2x1.5 inches, better still 3x1.5. That shed is just a load of flimsy 4ft panels nailed together, if you ever stumbled or a bike toppled over against the side it would collapse... you dont want many joins in the sides. The doors hafe no cross bracing, also double doors should have a central vertical brace on one door for the other one to shut against to make it more secure. Lastly, the roof looks like osb sheets with no central bearers. That will sag worse than a crackwhores tits.

Sorry, but 'budget' sheds are false economy.

Are you happy with it Gassit?


I don't have the money to be spending on amazing sheds, plus i am not sure how long i'll be in my current house. I just want something that is better than the cover. I am aware in high winds and think a shed would put my mind at ease.

Does anyone have experience with this product. Not strictly a shed but I do not have the space for one and this may just keep the neighbours happy on the front drive. Pricey but a possibility and when I get something that is worth a little more its peace of mind.

+1 what Jon says
I was a sectional buildings erector for several years, dealing mainly with garden sheds, summerhouses and garages. Also slab bases.
First a good solid level base is key to long life of the building. Slabs laid on dry mix sharp sand and cement is perfect, as we used to lay the bases and erect the building straight on . Some spade work to get your ground level before laying your slabs on a good bed saves faffing on relifting/relaying your slabs because you ain't dug out enough.
Regarding sheds, you get what you pay for, cheap ply roofs or that OSB crap, waste of time. For a start the weather will twist it, heat and cold during the seasons, causing your felt to sag and come away. Also you can't knock s good felt nail in it without it falling to bits. Often they pop the nails out in no time. Your ridge felt then ends up ripping off in the wind.
Floors are crap too, no strength at all, so useless for bikes and stands.
Often with cheap sheds and on larger buildings, they don't have a roof truss to brace the roof, so they sag and you can't get  tight felt runs, meaning it will flex and the felt won't last.
Often the felt supplied is like tissue paper.
A good shed company is Albany sheds in Northampton. We used to erect tons of these, heavy duty range, ideal for bikes. They are not cheap but great quality.
I also recommend using roof shingles on top of felt, I did this to mine and they last for ever.
Mine are fibre type, and have tar strips that the heat of the sun sticks them down. Looks like a tile roof. Fit and forget job.
Wickes sell them now.
Bet your looking at £1000 now for a good 10x8
cheers jacko

I bought two sheds from here: http://www.shedstore.co.uk/ (http://www.shedstore.co.uk/)


A large cheap one to keep the rain off light stuff and an expensive one to keep mowers etc in.  Their customer service was excellent, their delivery quick and when 4 panels each had a few warped lats (on the cheap shed, the more expensive one is tongue and groove), they sent me 4 more whole new panels.


I couldn't rate them highly enough.

I got a metal tin shed too for my bike. It was just delivered last weekend. I got idea from this thread that's why I decided to get the BillyOh 6x4 Ashington from http://whatshed.co.uk/cheap-metal-sheds/ (http://whatshed.co.uk/cheap-metal-sheds/) It was surprisingly cheap. The galvanized metal makes it secure to prevent water to come in. My wife normally starts an argument if I place something that will mess her garden, but because of the neat green color design, it blended well with her garden. The best part is the warranty for 15 years and yearly treatment is just  awesome.


So I will revive this thread to thank you for the idea. I was thinking of wood shed at first but you gave the idea to get a metal design. Nice idea!

Here you are then - flower basket, wire gecko and festoon lighting all completely optional.
Bolt 4 -7 foot doors together add a 12mm ply gable end front and back- run a length of 2x3 across those at the point lay 2 pieces of 8x4 OSB board each side for the roof overhanging at the sides and door end, sides provide for gutter and door end a rain canopy add a door and paint whatever colour - Nato green for me. I dont keep my bike there just normal junk.

You can see the two styles of garage door used. The doors make for a much stronger structure than the thin tin sheds you can buy.
You could use larger double garage doors at the side for a 10foot by 7 foot shed

You can see the two styles of garage door used. The doors make for a much stronger structure than the thin tin sheds you can buy.
You could use larger double garage doors at the side for a 10foot by 7 foot shed 



That's spot on fella! :thumbup
I think this might a route to go down, you've even put an old front door to good use. OSB- is that the stuff that turns to shredded wheat if it gets wet?

Correct on the door - although its an internal one, yes OSB thats the stuff but its come along way since then, you could use ply but it costs more and its only a support for the corrugated bitumen board, or you could use normal shed roofing felt which is what I had on there to start but it weathered on the egdes and magpies seemed to take umbridge with it and then the wind got under it, so I replaced with the bitumen sheet which are much better.
