Steel Garden Shed Assembly

We have gone to great lengths to ensure our steel sheds are some of the easiest to assemble, with clear and concise instructions. Here is a brief outline of how to assemble your new garden shed. The process is the same for both Galvo and Garden Master sheds.

The boxed shed is delivered in small pieces making handling and transporting easy and economical. Your shed kitset will come in one cardboard box and in most cases a longer plastic wrapped channel pack. With Garden Master sheds the door is pre-assembled and pre-hinged. Comes complete with screws, rivets and a drill bit. Floor sold separately.

Step 1:
Unpack the kitset and read the instructions. Have your tools on hand.

Join the sheets to form the wall panels (pictures 1 and 2)

Fix channels to top and bottoms at every 2nd rib (pictures 3 and 4)

Step 2:
Fit and fix “L” flashing (picture 5).  Bear in mind your shed door is already assembled and pre-hinged by our team. Complete all panels as per above and have them ready to erect your shed.

Now just join your corners (pictures 6 and 7)
