7 x 7 Waltons Tongue and Groove Wooden Corner Shed – Our first impressions
The unique design of this shed is the first thing that really captured our attention. Straying from the traditional style, this corner shed is wider than your average model. It also features a shorter depth which makes it ideal for shorter gardens. It’s really spacious, allowing you to store a wide range of items. We also love the construction. It has a very solid, stable design that oozes quality. So on first glance it definitely comes across as one of the best of its kind.
7 x 7 Waltons Tongue and Groove Wooden Corner Shed: Features
Waltons tend to incorporate some pretty good features into their sheds and the 7×7 corner shed is no different. Below you’ll find out more about its main features.
British manufactured – One thing Waltons is known for is its British designs. This shed is built in the UK, meaning when you buy it you are supporting British manufacturing.
12mm Tongue & Groove Cladding – The 12mm interlocking Tongue & Groove Cladding largely helps to increase the strength of the shed. Not only that, but it also provides fantastic weatherproofing properties.
Free felt roof – Free mineral felt is included in the cost.
Solid sheet material – The roof and the floor are made with a solid sheet material, adding strength and great stability to the structure.
10 year anti rot guarantee – To give you complete reassurance, the shed comes with a 10 year anti-rot guarantee.
Double ledge doors – The double ledge doors provide plenty of space to transport large items in and out of the shed. The ledge design also makes it possible to install a staple and hasp to further increase security.
Window placement options – You have the choice to have the window panel on the left or the right side of the shed; making it suitable for either corner.
Butterfly catch – To ensure the doors close properly, a butterfly catch comes built in.
Double framed corners – One of the signature design traits of Waltons, the shed is created with double framed corners. This increases both its stability and strength.

7 x 7 Waltons Tongue and Groove Wooden Corner Shed: Safety
While we agree this has some excellent safety features, one thing we were disappointed with was the lack of a lock. A weatherproof lock is available as an extra, but that means you have to pay more to secure the shed. Of course, this might not be a major concern; particularly if your garden is pretty secure anyway. However, it is something to keep in mind.
In terms of the actual build however, it has a sound, solid construction. The safety features incorporated help to ensure the shed is strong and extremely durable.

While the 7×7 corner shed is designed for those on a budget, it still manages to include some really good features. We love the fact that although the solid sheet materials included for the floor and roof do seem very thin, they are actually surprisingly strong. You also have the option to upgrade the floor with the extra strength support pack. Its corner design also offers excellent interior space while ensuring it takes up as little amount of garden space as possible.
The only thing we can really mention in terms of cons is that the shed does come unpainted. However, it still manages to provide an attractive design.
