Firstly, just to explain I bought this shed to store the contents of my garage in for 3 months while it gets rebuilt. It will probably last the 3 months I need it for (hence the average rating), but I'd be surprised if it lasted much longer. I'm writing the review here as well as I'd be surprised if they publish my review. It was for a Royal 6x6 tongue and groove apex shed.

So, for the review. It's a 6x6 shed, however I doubt it's 6 foot tall in the middle. I'm 6 foot and can't stand up in it even in the centre of the apex. Must have been made in the land of the little people.

The wood is poor quality - looks like pallet wood, and the uprights less than an inch across. A few of the thinner pieces of wood were broken on unwrapping, so I had to replace those when building it.

I'm not beginner for flat pack building, but the instructions were vague to say the least. The screws and nails supplied were ok, but the roof felt tacks were ridiculous - only about 5mm long and were no use at all.

Oh, and why this is called Royal I am not sure - it's a BillyOh shed.

Overall what can I say - if I'd bought this for anything other than temporary storage I'd be gutted. However it is a cheap shed, and if thats what you need (and you are less than 5 foot 6 tall) then go for it.
