    My daughter bought one, (Not sure where from though).

    She said she would never have one again due to terrible condensation problems.

    I bought one and would never recommend anyone buying one they are flimsy and not secure, and if like me you are in an area where it gets windy then it just destroys them

    Get someone to make you up a metal frame,then buy the sheets pre cut with the cloth type anti drip lining,these can then ither be dome head bolted or large head rivited onto the frame,1000 times better than shop cr-p working out about 20% less money to.

    I looked at metal garage, called company to enquire on material thickness, .3mm thick, which I could cut through with a Stanley knife, needless to say, I didn't make the purchase.

    Almost all single skin steel panel sheds will suffer from condensation, they'll also require some kind of reinforcing.

    What's wrong with a wooden shed?

    If you want a steel panelled shed then the best way if you like DIY is to build one. the cost of my workshop is less than £1500.
    It's 18ft long by 13ft wide by 10ft high (internal dimensions), it's built using 80mm thick composite steel panels which I bought secondhand, it has secondhand RSJ's for the ridge, eves, floor & corner upright beams.

    The floor is made from secondhand & new scaffolding boards laid on new 10" by 2" tanalised beams, with one steel beam in the centre.

    Iv'e been told that I could have done it for less if I had used Z purlins but I like RSJ's!!

    Composite sheets are the way to go but it really needs 2 people to handle them safely.

    Hope this helps

    That's not a shed, it's a nuclear shelter - but I wish I had one like it

    The ultimate man cave.

    I have recently purchased a 20x8 foot shipping container, which is to replace my crumbling brick and wood workshop, I wanted the quick fix, hence container purchase. Delivery pending.

    Ps, cost just under a grand with delivery, some welding is required and, I managed to get a significant amount off, as cheap welders are hard to find!!
