Default Plakki sheds

Anyone ever used one of these (adapted) as base of their set up?

Seem easier to scrub than wood, any experiences?

i can see where your coming from, would be low maintenance and providing it can be secured against strong winds like Mark says, i think it would provide a adequate weathering, just had a thought not sure about condensation but with plenty of ventilation should be fine, why dont you give one a try and let us know how you get on, got to be worth a go

Thanks all for replies. Next door just got one for their tools etc, which got me thinking bout it. Looks a doddle to clean and they fix down onto a concrete base. Also like the fact that is UV proofed and no need to reweather like you do with wood. Still under consideration (her indoors fancies summat that looks like a chalet off of Heidi!) but will keep you posted if I get one.
Cheers.

Cool Re: Plakki sheds

Yeah, sorry for posting on a very old thread. I'm just using search tab with keywords.

But I'm I already got an idea, I am just wondering if plastic shed will be better than woodshed? I'm looking at http://whatshed.co.uk/plastic-sheds/ and they are all nice and stylish. my wife likes Grosfillex Utility 7,5 Plastic Shed. She said this color is really nice for our garden. More than that, the 10x8 space is nice to put my bird cages and gardening tools. It is metal so it is rot-free. I'm just wondering if it can a protect my birds on this British weather.

What do you think?
