    Planning to get a new metal shed. I have never been keen on metal shed in the past, but that seems only choice for our back garden.

    The old wooden shed is bad state full of holes and the foundation under the floor seems sunk into the ground, so the soil on the ground is visible through gaps of the floor.

    There are couple of rain leaks too. But most serious problem is mice. I have noticed mice droppings in some of the boxes with books. I had to bin all the content in the boxes, and bleached the boxes.

    So looking for a new metal shed this time. I have read reviews on metal sheds, and problem seems, thin low quality metals, possible damage from strong winds and nightmare assembling procedure with thousands of screws and nuts.

    And I am not sure which one would be best make either.

    Size I am considering is eight by six. Any recommendations or advice? Thanks.

    I don't have any personal experience of metal sheds, but a friend has one and he complained of problems with condensation on inside surfaces dripping onto things stored in it.

    I got a plastic one several years ago, but I'm afraid I can't remember the brand.

    It is still standing solidly and, of course, plastic doesn't rot or rust. Easier to lift and put together too.
