Hi everone!

Some great tips on this site " just wanted to add another! Cheers

 

If you need extra storage space for all your gardening tools " get yourself a secure metal shed online from Asgard.  Its a cheaper alternative to a garage or an extension for your house!

The website is http://www.asgardsss.co.uk.  Its really handy " got my lawn mower, sons bike and all sorts of gardening stuff in it " only thing is the hassle of putting it up..

 

 

What do you think?

Hi Lucy, welcome to the forum. That looks like a huge storage space,  did you put it up yourself?

I'll try that again!

I take it that the corrugated iron is to cover the holes? 

I'll try that again!

I think they are actually asbestos sheeting (rather too common in Eastern Europe I am afraid) but yes they cover the holes " 6ft deep holes at that.

By the way Lucy, sorry I didn't say hello first. Welcome to the forum. I love the little storage space, it is a really good idea and would have been perfect when I lived in England but I now live in Latvia and my little mower is a small tractor (it's a really cute blue one [Image Can Not Be Found]) as we have around 6 ha of grass to cut (not sure exactlay as some of it has gone to brush).

Eeek Asbestos!  Scary.  What deep holes Joanna, no wonder you have them covered.  The picture in your post wasn't visible to me until I opened it in a new tab, are you able to see it in the post?

I'll try that again!

I can see it.

Asbestos is scary but just about every roof here is asbestos. What a Soviet legacyDoh. The holes are deep but that is so the foundations won't move when there is 3ft of snow on the roof Smug

We have the same problem but ours is just a small wooden barn not a house so I think we will be okay, which all just goes to show that the storage space that Lucy describes is a whole lot less work than an extension. Whistle

Hi all!

Thanks for the welcome everyone!

Toffee-apple - i had it installed for me, it comes flat packed! Confused

Joanna - I'm surprised that asbestos is being used - its banned in the UK!Eeek

 

I always think gardens are asuch a wasted space if you dont do anything with them!

Welcome, Lucy. I do envy your new tool shed.

We have bought up 4 secondhand garden sheds of varying sizes for cheap storage and they work very well. We could have 70 and they would all be stuffed with . . erm . . stuff Doh

I would think that asbestos is banned here too - I don't think you can buy it but practically all Soviet era buildings are roofed with it and the Soviets did a lot of building!Roll_Eyes
