7 x 4 shed for under 100??????
« on: April 19, 2012, 13:09 »
Hi
Got my new allotment plot last night, so eager to get started.
Been looking online today at sheds and for the size that I am looking for (7x4) I have not been able to find one for under 100!!!    :blink: :unsure: Can anyone suggest a cheaper alternative or know of a supplier where I could get one for under 100???
I have tried several trusted second hand selling websites but there are none local to me (Leicestershire)...
Anyone help ???

Got my 8' X 4' shed for 50:00 ! :ohmy:    The secret - it was a show shed from one of the B & Q type places.   I cannot take all the credit, my Son saw it and snapped it up.   With a more substantial base and a few coats of good preserver, I hope it will 'see me out'.

Pop round and ask the management if any are 'end of range' bargains.   :)   Best wishes
I may be growing OLD, but I refuse to grow UP !

The other alternative is good old flea bay, even then - you'll be shocked at what they go up to............and you have to dismantle yourself!!!

I was thinking that too, got to be dead lucky to get anything for that and even if you did, the quality of it is going to be very suspect anyway

even if you get a shed for 99, it'll be rubbish I'm afraid.  A recent purchase costing nearly 300 by a plot neighbour left me VERY underwelmed.  You couldn't lean on the thing for fear of falling through the walls and as for security - you wouldn't bother trying the lock, just stick your fist through the door and yank it off its pathetic hinges.

build your own for 100 and you'll get a much stringer shed, exactly how YOU want it

hi all,
Before i got my first shed I built a tool store - This was made from wood i scrounged from broken pallets etc and its about 8' long 3'wide and 3' tall it opens one side and has felt on the top , This is an ideal place to store your tools to start and cost me nothing to build.
Now I have managed to be very lucky and acquire a shed from free-cycle -I have completely refurbished it and lined the inside with pallet wood to stop people breaking in (our site got done over within the first month)
The cheapest way to build a tool store while you wait to either acquire one or find one cheap enough.
