    Hello Simon
    This garden shed is very stylish and it does seem like it would save on space. The more I read about the sheds the more impressed I was, they all look great. I think I prefer the second one myself. If you had kids they would claim it as their You could always keep it clean looking, and able to stand against the weather are both great assets. Does it lock? I know there wouldn’t be a lot in there but if you had tools they can be expensive. If it does lock how easy would it be for a burglar to pull the door open?
