Shed Type And Roof Size
Here we have one of the largest shed workshops that Windsor have so far produced, the 10′ x 10′ Windsor Overlap Modular Shed Workshop. This thing really is quite spectacular and we are sure standing inside it for the first time and seeing all that empty space is going to be incredible. The size of both the width and the length is 9 feet 11 inches and this is more than enough room for storage or for a workshop. Spending time inside the shed is not going to be uncomfortable because the ridge height is 7 feet 5 inches which means walking around will not require you to be hunched over all the time.
As is the case with most sheds of this size an apex roof has been used. This helps give you that extra head room along the ridge as well as protection against the rain by not allowing it to sit on the roof. The roof is made with 8 mm thick solid sheet boarding and has some very high quality roofing felt covering it.
Cladding, Frame And Floor
Windsor have been very clever with the design of this shed as they clearly wanted to offer as much storage space as possible, but at an affordable price. One of the things they have done to achieve this is use 7 mm thick overlap cladding for the walls. This type of cladding will work wonders at keeping out water and it also looks pretty nice as well. It is actually surprisingly strong and while some sheds offer far thicker cladding, we feel that for the price this cladding is fantastic.
The frame is very strong and at 28 mm x 28 mm we are sure the frame is going to serve as some great backup to the wall cladding. This is a pretty impressive frame that is going to keep the shed strong and not allow it to lose its strength after a few years and result in the shed starting to get flimsy. The frame is doing an amazing job at keeping this shed so strong and it does it without making the price start to creep up.
The flooring is another way that Windsor have managed to keep the price low, but without sacrificing the quality of the shed. The floor boards are made with the same type of boarding as the roof, but these ones are just a little thicker at 10 mm to help make them stronger. To help the floor boards out there is some very strong floor joists that are going to allow you to store some heavy things inside of here.
Treatment Requirement And Warranty
The shed will be given a free basecoat treatment which has been done to protect the wood during transit as well as when you are building the shed. Shortly after construction, you will need to paint the shed with wood treatment. This is something that you will need to do once a year to protect the wood.
Windsor give one of the best guarantees with their sheds. They give you a ten year anti rot guarantee and as long as you protect the wood, we are sure it is something you will never have to make use of for as long as you have the shed.
Doors And Windows
A shed as large as the 10′ x 10′ Windsor Overlap Modular Shed Workshop must have a set of awesome doors to make getting things in and out easy. Let’s face it if you are going to be using this as a workshop then you will want to be bringing a whole lot of stuff in here and last thing you want is to be needing to wrestle it through the door. Well thanks to the incredible, 5 feet 10 inch high and 4 feet 4 inches wide double doors getting your things inside will be easy. To prevent the doors from sagging, Windsor have used some very high quality hinges that will keep the door in its place.
The shed has four rather large windows which are made from high quality styrene. These windows will let in plenty of natural light and as they are made from styrene there is never any worry of broken glass.
Security And Privacy
This is a pretty robust shed and it does offer the things you place inside a good amount of security. The doors are kept closed by a turn button latch which we feel will be strong enough to keep the doors closed.
A shed this huge is always going to get a lot of attention and those windows do make it easy to look inside. We think that if you are concerned about privacy then you should add in a set of blinds, curtains or even a fancy piece of fabric so people cannot look inside.
Customisation Options And Extras
Anything you do to this shed like add in a hanging basket or some kind of plant feature outside will certainly add personality to the shed. One way to customise the shed and also take care of it is by selecting a coloured wood treatment.
One of the things that we really like about this shed is how, you pretty much get everything you need with it. Windsor have not made a low priced shed which then needs a whole load of extras to be functional which is something we have seen before and is something that does annoy us. All you will need to consider buying is a padlock if you want to make sure the shed is locked up at night.
Even though this is a shed which is very low priced considering its size, we actually are very impressed with how high quality Windsor have managed to make it.
Longevity Of materials 8/10
Now this is a shed which is going to require a little looking after in the form of its annual treatment and as well as a little care here and there. But for this little bit of effort, you will be rewarded with a shed which will last you many years.
We honestly cannot fault the amount of storage space this shed gives you at all. It is so huge that it would serve as an excellent place to do a little DIY project as well as being somewhere you can keep a whole lot of stuff.
Ease of installation 8/10
A shed this large is always going to be a two person job and take a few hours to build. To make things easier for you, Windsor have made the shed modular so no parts of the shed are really huge and overly difficult to hold and put in place.
How they have managed to make this shed for under a thousand pounds is really incredible and if you are on a budget, but have a huge garden or just want a lot of space this is one of the best sheds when it comes to offering great value for money.
Final Thoughts: The 10' x 10' Windsor Overlap Modular Shed Workshop really is one very impressive looking shed that offers you just an amazing amount of space to make use of. No matter what your needs are we have no doubt that this shed is going to be able to meet them. The shed does offer a lot of space and it has a very attractive design, but the price that Windsor have put on this shed makes it even more attractive. If you do have a very strict budget then you can be sure that this is a shed which is offering you a whole lot of value for your money. We are sure no matter who buys this that when they first stand inside the empty shed and see the space they have to make use of that they are going to be very pleased.
