Product Reviews for Canberra Eight Metal Shed
Name: G Knight
Amazed how an 8'X6' shed could arrive in such a compact (but heavy) package.However,all parts were there when I checked the list. I waited for good weather to assemble the shed and found assembly easy provided the comprehensive instructions were referred to regularly.The finished shed is very pleasing to the eye. I ran out of the plastic sealing washers but this may have been my fault as it is not obvious which screws or bolts need them and I tended to use them on all. I purchased further similar washers locally and these seem to do the job O.K. Heavy rain after assembly revealed small leaks around the plastic skylight which I have now sealed with silicon sealant. I have to add that I am pleased that, as child, I had a Meccano set as the building of the shed was akin to building in Meccano. My only adverse comment is that the metal sheets are quite thin and I will need to be careful not to bend them out of shape in use. Similarly, care will be needed to preserve the coating on the metal to keep rust at bay.

Overall very pleased with my new shed. I was surprised by how compact it was packaged and was worried that I was missing a box – but everything was included. Tiger delivered exactly when agreed. It took me about 9 hours to build on my own. The instructions were very clear – reminded me of a big Airfix kit. All the parts mostly fitted into the pre-drilled holes although those that didn’t line up exactly could easily be coaxed. Getting the sliding doors to meet squarely was the trickiest bit, but there are various adjustment holes built into the design to assist you. Don’t attempt this build on a windy day – the metal sheets are prone to catch the wind and can be easily creased. Also, an electric screw-driver is a must as there are hundreds of bolts/screws to attach. I’m going to use this to store bikes, camping gear, golf clubs etc. and wanted something that was rodent proof. Initial impressions look good my only worry is that the shed may be noisy in heavy rain or hail.
