maybe buy the whole shed, then sell the bit you don't want to some one who is having a similar issue buying 1/6th of one.... Smile

^^^

Agreed. Buy a whole shed and a pack of sausages.
Use the shed parts to make shed, and then burn the rest to cook sausages.
Eat sausages, drink beer, job well done

right, ive finished now.

basically i wanted an 8x6 pent shed with a left gable door, front hinged on the rear left slat.

like this




but with the door right by the little end.

available in T&G floor, roof and walls for about 5-600 quid.


and now it gets complicated...

i dont want the wall with the windows in.

4 days solid on the phone.

to hear.

nah mate. its all or nothing.

you want what?

p155 off

why?

its the same price as a full shed.

now, i was willing to pay the same price, so i started asking prices and delivery times.

same price as a full shed and six weeks to make it.

the shed is free, but we charge £500 to deliver it........no, you cant collect.....

oh, because you want a wall missing its a special order so its a £200 surcharge. on top of 600 quid for the shed....and a hundred quid delivery....and £80 to put it up.........no you cant put it up yourself. or collect it.....

trying to buy the panels came out at nearly £800....

then theres the base.

8x6 base sir? thats £200 to flag it.....oh you want it doing cheap? i can build you an 8x6 frame out of 4x2 for £150.........what do you mean you can buy the wood for £28?? you funkin build it then.


so i did.


up yours shed people.

Why do you need the door at the side... and why would anyone want a hot tub... and is peter stringfellow booked for the opening ceremony... and is the dress code for men a leopard print thong (artificial leopard print obviously...) (although with UK weather I bet the thong to leopard ratio is actually quite acceptable)

because the trellis with the hanging basket on separates the yard (where the dogs "go") from the garden.....where they know better than to "go".

and so.....are you ready for this.......so.......you can get in and out of the shed...... Shocked

if you feel the need to dress in leopard print then you may. if you chose that print to be on a thong, please go somewhere else you yakky individual.

Hydrotherapy

Often prescribed for the following conditions: Arthritis, Stress, Headaches, Diabetes, Muscles and Joint injuries, Bursitis, Tendonitis, Scoliosis, and Fibromyalgia.

The 40 degree warm water of the Lay-Z-Spa hot tub helps to stimulate the body and release endorphins; we all know that a long hot bath is always the best cure for a good night’s sleep! Combine the warm water with the Lay Z massage water jets of the lay z spa inflatable pool and you have found therapeutic hot tub haven! Evidence has suggested that the heat can help your blood vessels to open up and reduce blood pressure whilst the massage jets stimulate better circulation. The buoyancy of the water also helps to give the feeling of weightlessness and take pressure off joints and limbs.

Skin and muscles loosen and relax from the increased circulation when in the warm water of an inflatable hot tub. The gentle massaging jets increase blood flow to injured areas, bringing much needed nutrients to help repair the damage. These days many athletes use hydrotherapy as part of their recovery training programmes.

For conditions such as arthritis simply taking the pressure off joints in a hot tub can provide relief of symptoms and can increase ability to perform daily tasks with more ease.

Sleep Therapy

Sitting in a hot tub raises your body temperature and the weightlessness caused by the buoyancy of the water can be deeply relaxing creating the right conditions for a deeper sleep. Studies also suggest that once your body temperature has dropped on leaving the portable spa that this temperature change may also induce a deeper sleep.


Type 2 Diabetes & Hot Tubs

Recent studies have shown that with continued use of hot tub therapy of up to 30 minutes a day can help with type 2 diabetes by lowering blood sugar. However this does come with a warning; as a drop in blood sugar may not be immediately apparent until an individual has exited the tub, with this is mind we would advise you leave your lay-z-spa hot tub gradually and seek proper medical advice before using a hot tub so as to really feel and appreciate the benefits of this wonderful hot tub hydrotherapy.

Prefer a good single malt myself; cheaper, nicer, less messing about, plus it gives you a good night's sleep.

I bought an ex hire 300+ which is the older version of this one.
http://www.softubuk.com/uk/shop-details/241/resort-300

It cost me £4,000 but it only has a 1400w pump/heater and takes 3 days (midwinter) to come up to temperature. The advantage is that it costs less than 50p per day to run once it is at the right temperature and with my solar/wind installations I rarely pay for the electricity to run it anyway.

I only use mine September to May anyway (too hot in the summer) and i thought about selling it and I would get about £3000 back for it after 3 years.

The hardshell ones cost a fortune to own and run, the inflatable ones are great for occasional use (put them/take them down as required) but cost a lot to run as you're always heating them up from cold. That Argos one looks really good value - my choices were limited when I bought mine.

Ouch you're into non-inflatable for 4000...

41!!! That's crazy! We put ours up to 40 one day and we all ended up sitting up out of the water it was so warm. I like ~38/38.5ish as 37.5 is about right and it tends to drop a little initially once we take the lid off.

When I moved house I acquired a hot tub. Figured why not as we'd probably never buy one otherwise. From what I understand the solid ones need to be "on" all the time in some sense to stop it freezing over winter and damaging it.

We leave it in "eco-mode" if we're not using it and it doesn't sting us too badly on electricity. The biggest issue we're having economy-wise is the elec company want to put our bill up over winter due to a higher elec usage... which then drops off over summer.

What I found way more expensive was the chemicals to put in it - if you listen to everything they tell you you should do its a lot of money on various treatments.

Beer seems like a brilliant idea but I've discovered it's a good idea to drink shandies... but twice as many of them as its incredible how quickly these things dehydrate you.

Also consider buying one of those pool li-on inflatables. Then put piece of board on top of inflatable... then select a board game of your choice... Buckaroo? You can make it more challenging using blower/jets. WARNING with scrabble you may lose parts.

T'other thing I'd consider when buying one is how many it says it can seat... I think our's says something like 6 person seating. There's enough places to park asses for 6 people pretty comfortably but not so much foot/leg space in the middle for so many people. We had I think 8 people in it one day and that was fairly cozy.

we are lucky as the inflatable ones are just taking off in a big way, so theres plenty of choice.

the lazy spa was ok, nice comfy floor but the inflatable is thin and has a cover around it to give it rigidity. you couldnt heat and bubble at the same time so it would drop pretty quickly.

the mspa had heated bubbles but the rigidity was terrible.

the intex is a whole other league. my 16st can sit on the side without problem, the bubbles are heated and its got a 2.2kw heater.

i went to bed last night and it was on 30deg. this morning it was on 40 deg and we had used 35p electricity.

the chemicals aint too bad, when you consider that without them you are into legionnaires territory...

this one is massive and i recon 6 people no problem.
