Tiny Shed

Postby Westi » Fri May 27, 2016 8:05 pm

Need direction to a suitable supplier!

We have a tiny house, in a great location so don't mind, but have no where to store garden tools & house mop & broom etc. I have been looking for a small shed to go by the door on the back patio, but space is (not surprisingly) tiny. I measured up about 20 inches width & deep but could push that a couple of inches & about 5 ft tall. (Height isn't an issue). I've got the side of the fence with the supports! I want a shed so I can paint it & make it a feature.

Anyway having a bit of a problem finding something this small - any suggestions! Please don't suggest I build something, remember I'm Mrs No Nails married to Mr Completely Unhandy! I asked a chippie guy but he quoted ££££'s maybe confused him, but pretty sure I didn't mention gold bars! I did find something cute online that seemed to fit the bill but a fortunate visit to the garden centre showed the height was not available space but some stupid little cupboard. Have found something that would fit but it for inside & would rot in a blink of an eye!

Follow this link and look through the options, the sentry box and keter medium store look like they fit the bill.

Sounds like you should try hanging a coffin on the fence assuming one of you can manage to add a couple of hinges to the lid.

Hi Alan,
We used to have one of those in my childhood. It stood 6ft from the septic tank.

Spoken with tongue in cheek but maybe you should contact the Portaloo toilet people to see if they have a disused empty Portaloo you could paint up !

Too big Primrose two foot square was the available space.

Thank you Everyone!

Geoff a coffin would be about perfect in size, but not only would it worry the neighbours but would probably be the most expensive option!

Peter, I've got my eye on the Forest Tall, like the idea of the zinc roof, might only put one shelf in it & screw it to the fence to give it extra support lost by taking out the other 2 shelves. It's begging for a make over as well, so don't get jealous when I win shed of the year! :wink:

The danger when people start to believe their own publicity is that they often fall off their own ego.

At least travelling under the guise of the Pa Snip Enterprise gives me an excuse for appearing to be on another planet

On the subject of coffins. Why are they cremated with the body.
