Easy to assemble : The panels of this garden shed are interlocking, with a tongue and groove device, which greatly facilitates assembly, especially with the help of the very detailed instructions.

How To Choose A Garden Shed?
The garden shed is a storage space that has existed for a long time. Indeed, there are many things that are not really meant to be stored in the house. At the limit, in the garage. We are talking about mowers, shovels, garden hoses, various tools, etc. If the usefulness of a garden shed is no longer to be demonstrated, it should be known that there are different types. It will therefore be necessary to take into account certain criteria to be sure to choose the right one.
Define Your Needs
This criterion often comes at the top of the list, quite simply because it is a question of finding a solution to your needs. Also, are you looking for a garden shed to store your various tools, or are you planning to make a living space like a guest room? What kind of tools do you think you would store in your garden shed, large tools such as XXL mower , generator, etc., or a few shovels, brooms, etc.
It goes without saying, how could you choose a garden shed of 6 m² if the area available to accommodate such an installation is only 4 m² in your property. So remember to visualize in advance the place where you will install your future garden shed, and measure the usable surface. Remember to include the necessary clearance for doors and windows, if you choose a model with a hinged door and window. In some cases, space is saved by choosing a model with a sliding door and / or window.
Still talking about doors and windows, you should know that some models have them, while others will only have a large double-leaf door in the front. Again, everything will depend on your needs. Is it absolutely necessary to bring natural light into your garden shed? In this case, it will be better to choose a model with a door and window. A garden shed equipped with ventilation will always be preferable, to ventilate the space as well as possible and thus preserve your various tools stored inside as well as possible.
The choice of material is very important, which will condition several things. As an example, a wooden garden shed will be very classy, but will require regular maintenance. Wood is also an excellent natural insulator, so choose if you plan to make your shelter a children’s hut , or a summer bedroom, etc.
Another resin model will resist bad weather much better, and will be maintenance-free, while being easier to assemble (in most cases). Another steel model will be much less expensive, but its robustness often leaves something to be desired (depending on the thickness of the sheets). It will especially be necessary to learn well about the necessary maintenance for each model.
Just like houses, garden sheds can have different roofs. A flysheet or a single roof, or a flat roof, it’s up to you to see which one could best suit your garden. For example, if you are going to stick your shelter facing a wall, a single-sloped roof facing the garden will be more suitable.
This is another important criterion. A “shelter” is supposed to be sturdy, able to withstand inclement weather. But not only that, it is also necessary that its various elements are robust. For example, for a model with an integrated floor, remember to check the maximum weight that it can support. Also remember to check whether the garden shed requires a foundation (slab, wooden floor, anchors, etc.) or not.
Pay Attention To The Regulations
Although it is hardly mentioned in the product descriptions, it should be noted that the installation of a garden shed may be subject to certain conditions. In general, for any shelter with a surface area of less than 5 m², no action is necessary. Beyond that, you will have to go to the town to find out and do what to do (declaration of work or request for a building permit).
