Exterior: The waney edge styled timber cladding gives the shed a very natural look, allowing it to blend into the natural environment of the garden. The shed comes with a 10-year anti-rot guarantee from the manufacturer, provided that the timber is regularly treated.
Interior: The 3x5ft interior is comparatively small compared to the average shed, however for storing those essential items or as secondary storage this is a great little storage solution. Further storage can be created by adding internal shelving or hooks to hang equipment from, thereby freeing up floor space for larger items.
Door: There is a single door entryway which is wider than the average doorway, allowing you to get a complete overview of the interior contents when opened. Easy access to equipment is provided, although there is no ramp to aid with wheeled or heavier items. The door stays firmly shut once the latch is applied, meaning that everything remains dry and secure whilst not in use.
Security: The door comes complete with a turn button to keep it firmly shut. Although no security fixtures are included, one could be purchased independently and fitted at a modest cost. There is also the chance to add a deluxe security alarm kit to your order during the purchase process at an additional cost.
