Shed Type And Roof Size
If you want an eye catching shed, the 7 x 5 Shed-Plus Champion Heavy Duty Pent Wooden Shed With Logstore is certainly that. Part shed, part log store, this is a shed that we really like the look of. We feel that the log store gives it a little bit more personality and really makes the shed stand out. The actual shed is 7 feet wide and 5 foot deep give or take a couple of inches. This is not the largest shed we have seen, but it will be enough storage space for most people. Of course next to this you have that fantastic log store. When you add in the log store portion the whole structure is 9 feet 11 inches. We really like this log store and as it is cladded at the back and a little bit at the side, you could store things other than wood in here. The shed has some very nice headroom with the lowest point at the back being 6 foot 1 inch and the highest point being 6 feet 11 inches. This will make moving around in the shed comfortable and not require you to hunch over.
The shed has a pent roof that is made with fantastic looking 12 mm thick tongue and groove boarding. As well as being good looking, these boards are very strong and solid. We really like how the roof slopes towards the back of the shed, keeping the rain away from the door. One thing that is worth noting is that the log store is also fully covered by this pent roof.
Cladding, Frame And Floor
We really like the cladding they have used for the 7 x 5 Shed-Plus Champion Heavy Duty Pent Wooden Shed With Logstore. At 12 mm thick, this tongue and groove shiplap cladding is just as strong as it is easy on the eyes. We love the design of this cladding and think the way that they have given it such a smooth look just makes the shed look that extra bit high quality. Of course as this is tongue and groove shiplap cladding, there is no way that any rain is getting in here.
Inside the shed and serving as the bones keeping it all together is a very impressive 34 mm x 34 mm frame. This is a chunky and solid frame that is really going to give this shed a strong and solid feel. As the frame is so thick, we are sure this is a shed that is going to give you many years of use. Even if you were to run into the shed when playing with the kids, everything would be fine. Well the shed would be, we cannot say for sure you would be!
Here at WhatShed, we love it when a shed has a uniform look and this one has that. The reason for this is that they have used tongue and groove boarding for the floor just like they have for the roof. This really does tie it all together and give the shed a very smart look on the inside. Also at 12 mm thick and supported with some strong floor joists, the floor is able to take a lot of weight.
Treatment Requirement And Warranty
The 7 x 5 Shed-Plus Champion Heavy Duty Pent Wooden Shed With Logstore is actually pressure treated. This takes away the need for you to mess around getting more wood treatment on the grass than the actual shed. No treatment is necessary here, not even a year down the road. This is a shed that is ready to go as soon as you have installed it.
As the shed is pressure treated, it comes with a warranty that protects you against rot and decay for 15 years.
Doors And Windows
The 7 x 5 Shed-Plus Champion Heavy Duty Pent Wooden Shed With Logstore has a single door which is 5 feet 11 inches high and 2 feet 11 inches wide. This is actually a very impressive size for a single door. The door is made with some vertical cladding which we think looks very smart. It is also very durable as it has double z framing and three good sized door hinges to keep it in place.
There is one small window right on the front of the shed. This is a very welcome addition. Not only will it let in plenty of natural light, but this window also opens so you can get a bit of fresh air in here as well.
Security And Privacy
We like how secure this shed is. The door has a proper lock on it that comes with a key so you can keep your items securely locked away inside. As a whole this is one very solid shed so we have no worries at all about the level of security it is offering. Plus not having to buy any kind of extra lock is always nice.
That small window is pretty much front and centre, but the window is not so large that it makes it very easy for a person to walk past and easily look in. However, you may want to think about adding a set of blinds or even just a bit of fabric if you want to keep things more hidden away.
Customisation Options And Extras
They do mention that you can tinker with the design of the shed, but they do not actually offer any customisation options. This is a little confusing, so if you do want to look into this further you will have to actually call them and ask about it. To be honest though, we feel this is a great looking shed as it is and would not really change anything about it.
As far as extras for the 7 x 5 Shed-Plus Champion Heavy Duty Pent Wooden Shed With Logstore go, there are only two on offer. One is an installation service, which at £99.99 is actually a fair price. They also have a set of Hotties Heat Logs. These come in a ten pack for only £5.99, which is not a bad price at all. Also it will give you some logs to put in that log store.
We are very impressed with the quality of this shed. They really have done a great job and made this as high quality as they possibly could at this price range.
Longevity Of materials
This is going to be a shed that gives you many years of use. Also due to the materials it is made with, you do not have to do much, if anything, in the way of maintenance.
While 7 x 5 may not sound like a lot of space, it actually is far more than you would think. Plus you have all that extra height to make sure of as well as the extra storage space the log store gives you.
We feel that the asking price for this shed is very fair. It is high quality and it has a great look. In all honesty we are surprised that they are not asking closer to £800 for this shed.
The 7 x 5 Shed-Plus Champion Heavy Duty Pent Wooden Shed With Logstore is one very impressive shed. It actually offers you far more storage space than you would think. The actual shed is a decent size and then of course you have the extra space that is provided by the log store. The fact that it is pressure treated means that you do not have to do much to look after this. In all this is a very well made shed that is going to give you 20 plus years of service. Also, we are sure that you will agree thanks to that smooth cladding this one very smart looking shed. With a very reasonable price, this is one high quality shed that is very easy for us to recommend.
