How do you secure yours. Been thinking that as long as the Walls are wood hard to prevent entry unless whole structure lined in some way.

It's 12'x8' which was the biggest I could afford. Fortunate to know someone who makes them to measure so I could put the door exactly where I wanted it to allow a big enough space on one side to hang the bikes and keep them out the way of everything else.

Shed by Argos...

...and then there's the gazebo!

Image

...which is something of a 'halfway house' for projects!

Image

...not that the shed is much better!

Image

...I think I have a problem :facepalm:

I would post a picture of my shed. But it has concrete walls and corrugated roof. But its not a garage as its only big enough for a couple of bikes.

Nice Acer, is that in the ground? Looks like like it is doing well, the frost kill 80% of mine this year!

Oh and nice shed :)

Could this be classed as a shelter a la Anderson?

Why don't you post it anyway :D

That's a good size about 18x10 in old money? I put down base frame with sand over concrete (all over the place for level) and then honeycombe type recycle plastic square thingies filled with pea shingle. Must say very quick and light work rather than slabs etc as have a dodgy back.
