Rated 2 out of 5 by Audrey You only get what you pay for
Cheap and cheerful. One door bigger than other so carpenter had to shave it to get it to fit. On reflection should have paid more for a better one, but this is very cheap compared to others in the market.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Fiona Looks good when finished
The finished product looks good and the timber was worth the reduced price (but NOT the original price). Most of it went up fine, however the wood was not prepared well in some places, parts of it were glued where the wood had split, and the roof was slightly warped. Luckily I had experienced hands in putting it together, so they had to spend extra time on it to make it good. This is not something I expected to do with a Homebase product, and I was more than disappointed. I read the other review for the 8x8 and was concerned, however reading the review for the 7x7 was great, so left me confused and so I took the risk. Once we have made good the things that don't fit well e.g. side window, door lock and roofing gap, I will be very happy with it. I was just expecting a little bit more quality with the product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Geoffrey Exactly as described
I think that this is a great product, exactly as described in the information provided. I also think that it is excellent value as I know there are similar items offered for sale elsewhere which are much more expensive.

Rated 3 out of 5 by The Halls Neat but slightly disappointing
Nice size for a medium garden, fairly solid, and veranda gives extra character and shade. However, quality of materials not very good: splits in several of the wooden panels, the two doors do not fit together, and both seem out of alignment with the sill. Windows are only (bendy) plastic, and panes slide around in their slots so that they can actually come out of their seating if not exactly centralised.

Apart from the delivery problems encountered between Homebase and the "makers" I found this shed to be of poor quality with the thinnest windows ever. The screws supplied continually sheared off in use and the instructions for building were not the clearest. The biggest problem being the lack of felt supplied as this only allowed for an inch or so "overlap" when a good 8 inches either side would be the norm.. So on top of the cost of the shed and the poor quality of the shed I've had to fork out for good quality screws and 4 sheets of felt as the rolls supplied were inadequate in both roof coverage and quality. Steer clear...!!!
