cant comment on the room but make sure you alarm it or have a big dog or something shed thefts are common round my way.
My shed is 12 x 10 and still too small !
8x6 for me, 5 bikes fit ok.
Look carefully at the door position MrPaul....i made sure mine was in the middle to give easy access / egress for the bikes. My last shed had the door at one end, it limited how you could place the bikes inside.
I think our shed is 8 x 6 - we have 5 bikes in there - and a lawn mower across the width ... I wouldn't say it was spacious but just do-able?
If it's sideways opening, 3 bikes I would say. Sideways sheds are a right pain though as you always want the bike at the back.
Can you put it against a wall? I had a blacksmith make me a U bar which bolted to the wall and I cut a slot in the shed, put the shed in place and could therefore lock the bikes to the U bar.
put your bike in the dining room instead of the kids'
you are awaer that a shed WILL fall down if there's a violent storm?
Mine's 8 ft wide, with the door in the middle of the 8ft , so the sheds 6 ft deep. My bikes sit in there ok, with just a slight angling of the h/bars. 3 bikes on one side, 2 on the other. You do have to move the bikes a bit if you want one of the ones furthest away from the door, but it's no problem.
If you can find a good shed outlet (not B&Q fer chrissakes ), they will usually tailor it to your specs.
You could save space by hanging the bikes up by the front wheels, or have hooks in the roof to hang the kids bikes from.
If you want to know how much space you get with a 6x8 shed, it is 48 square feet. Whereas with a 5x7 you would only get 35.
sheds are actually quite a good idea. I wonder what the biggest shed you can build is? and I wonder how easy it is to make a smooth concrete floor or whether you need "l33t bu1Lding skillz".
see i'm planning on moving to a house with a garage.
But if I could quite easily build a MASSIVE shed i wouldn't need a garage. Do you ever need planning permission for a shed?
As a general rule of thumb, your shed should be about twice the size of your house.
that's funny snorri
