Depends on what he paid for it. Although it does look superior to most sheds.
Yes, the shed itself is what my Dad would have described as " a grand lartle 'ut".

19mm barrel board sides, 25mm floor, security bolted hinges and lock etc. Solid as a rock.
It needs to be, I can see myself living in there.
It will be insulated, lined with plywood. (and painted pastel green - her bit!)
It cost about £1100, with an extra £300 for that roof, that's why we are unhappy!

I'm available Monday mate, only charge you mates rates... £100 an hour plus travelling costs plus lodgings, plus food and 20% of any refunds :D
Sorry mate, reasonable rates, my missus costs me more than that, but I reckon she would have 'em weeping in minutes.
She does with me. :oops:;)

I've been told by a couple of tradesman that they'd much rather deal with a disgruntled husband than a discontented wife.
Is that right? :ROFLMAO:

I've got a missus like that... she's frighteningly cold and logical in an argument.... and bloody fierce with it

I presume they glued it down? You need sun and temps above 6 degrees for 24hrs for EDPM.

To make you feel better I had complete jerks build my summer house. £2995 for cabin, 1k build, 1k for concrete. Thing leaks like 25 year old bivvy.

Mainly down the corners, Im going to clad it myself. There really is some *ankers out there doing building work.

Apart from the roof it looks a better quality shed than most.
And as such deserves a quality roof. That is like buying a Sphere pole and using Avanti universal top kits with it.

Is this quality shed going to be a 'Man-Shed' or workshop or something else?
Just wondering. :) :waving:

One of the fitters has left his Preston ripple bar under that butyle. 😆. No, get them back. Needs sorting. Other than that it looks a nice shed. Get an alarm on it. 👍

Nice shed would like to have seen some galvinised hinges on though. Good luck getting the roof sorted.

It will be a battleground between a potting shed / summer gin palace and a man cave. We shall see.

To finish this sorry tale, the owner of the fitting company came today.
He tutted, took the whole EPDM rubber roof covering off, glued the shed roof, left it 40 minutes to go tacky, relaid the rubber, using a big rollers and heat gun. then screwed on the end boards and finials, and then rolled it again. Then took photographs.

It took him 3 1/2 hours, twice as long as his fitters spent on the whole shed assembly.

He didn’t say so much, but I gather his fitters are to receive "retraining".
Or in old money, a boot up the arse!
And "lessons will be learned".

It's a bit better, to say the least.

:oops:;)

I'm now just hoping that I can be rid of this persistent earache I've had since the shed was erected. :oops: ;)

I would still put some quality oil based stain on the wood. When it warms up. And re stain it every year.

When I had my man cave built I had a sheet roof with decent quality felt then covered with `onduline`.

Banksy, my shed is better than yours :p
