    Garden Sheds

    Does anyone know or have a line on where to get a pre-fabbed or built garden shed?

    I've checked the usual places online (Lazada etc.) without too much luck and went for a look at the weekend in the stores and whilst they did have them it was a fairly limited selection and the quality didn't seem great.

    What I'm looking for is something along these lines:



    or even:



    I mostly need it for storage for my tools and crap and have already downloaded some plans to build just a simple storage cabinet type in the event that I can't find one but thought I'd check first just in case.

    This is what I'll be building and going with otherwise:

    Cheers.

    Yeah probably going that route anyways as I say, just missing a few tools so thought I'd check out options before committing to buying what I'll need to build me own.

    Yeah, build it yourself. Don't get too complicated.
    What other tools would you need besides a skill-saw, a tri-square, a tape measure, a pencil and a hammer?
    A screwdriver for the hinges....so maybe a drill too.

    Put me up for a night or two I'll come and give you a hand...will bring my drill and screwdriver

    Yes.

    Probably some trestles wouldn't be amiss either.

    Ironically I'll have plenty enough room to store all those tools... Once the shed's built.

    Hope it’s secure. I had one exactly the same as the one in the op. In U.K. my garden backed onto allotments. Got broken into sadly. Used for tools and kids bikes, bouncy castle etc.
    Break in but nothing missing?

    I'll put a bolt and lock on it but it should be OK. Where we are is fairly safe and secure, no issues so far (touch wood).

    Ant, is a softwood shed a good idea, won't it just end up as a Termite meal ticket - those thin sheet metal or plastic one have got to be more practical than wood in Thailand

    Orrrrr get a shipping container if you have loom, you'll probably get your money back too if you come to sell it later.
    Bsnub: I am so much smarter than you. :} I have a work laptop and also use other cloud tools to do my job. I was physically in the office on 01/04/19.

    Probably not enough loom for shipping container and overkill for my purposes as well.

    Did see a plastic one but it was poorly constructed and couldn't see it lasting a decent storm here.

    I'll likely build that wall lean-to type so it'll be mostly under cover of the eaves and will use treated timber so should be all good... hopefully.

    If you are going wood then i'd get the hardwood ply and varnish it, 2.4m x 1.2m x 18mm was c900THB last time i bought it, frame with some steel square section inside...

    I don't know where you're putting it but I would place it on concrete. A few pics above have the right idea. A slab in front of the door with a decent pitch up would be ideal. Just roll the grill out and pop a cold one open.

    No puddles, mudd, bugs, as it would be easy to treat around it for termites.

    Maanaam and Ant sound like dumbasses with a plan. So get up off your fat asses, walk away from the computer, be sure to show us pictures of what you build.

    I read Maanaam has a drill and screwdriver, and when Ant used the word "trestles" I knew these are the big boys.

    Pre-fabs suck and lack a spiritual quality, Anty.

    I'm sure you know someone that knows someone who might be handy with these type finishing carpentry things.
    Made from scratch is always nicer.

    Oh dear this thread seems to have attracted an Internet Tough Guy.

    I said "sheds" not "closets", tunk. You can stay in yours.

    Ant 31,000 posts. I'm sure your carpentry skills are not up there with your typing skills. Better you stick with typing bitch.

    So you've got a background in high culinary and high carpentry now

    Ant quit fucking around looking at "shed" sites and start looking a MAN CAVE sites. You know it makes sense....
