Rated 5 out of 5 by Humbermart A bargain when on offer
Managed to pick one of these up from Homebase when they were on promotion in the summer, and also at a 15% off weekend.
It was relatively easy to build for a competent DIYer and most of the work I did single handed. I built the base myself and this took as long as the cabin.
Overall quality of timber was very good, but I spent an extra few hundred pounds on plastic coated pan tile effect sheeting, since the included felt is quite basic. I also added barge boards and guttering, and the cabin now looks really substantial and expensive.
I added a decent laminate floor on top of the included boards and painted the inside in a stone effect emulsion. I would like to have added insulation to the walls, but the costs were mounting.
If I'd paid full price I'd probably be less enthusiastic, but for the deal at the time it is superb and well worth 5 stars

A well designed and sturdy garden building. Looks great after painting with wood preservative.
Construction takes a lot more than 6 hours but is fairly straightforward. Important to have a level base.
A bargain with Homebase special offer .
