Hi, we have the 1.52 x 1.52 space saver. A few missing holes but no drama until we got to the top door jamb (part 90C) which is about 5mm too long. We checked off parts prior to assembly but didn't measure to the mm. Would rather not have to cut parts to fit. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Can the bike shed be disassembled to be moved and then reassembled at new location? Thanks

I'd suggest partially disassembling it, into four sides and two roof subassemblies. But yes it should not be a problem.

Why don’t Absco provide a list of parts found in each box, would be helpful when attempting to assemble. Model 30302GK

Absco Sheds   DM   

Hi John, The QR code inside your box will take you to the link to download your instruction manual as a PDF, here you will find the parts checklist on the first pages. The manual is also available to download on the product page on our website. We recommend that you follow the parts checklist at the start of the manual and if you have any questions at all please do not hesitate to reach out directly to our customer service team who are available 7-days a week.

Thank you for your reply, my issue was which box to open, the parts list that I downloaded did not identify what was in which box. I opened box 1 thinking that was where the first parts to be constructed were, but no I had to open both boxes. Your parts list that I download and printed off still doesn’t detail what parts can be found in which box.

Absco Sheds
Absco Sheds   DM   

Hi John, Apologies for the confusion. We do recommend that all components in each box be marked off the checklist prior to starting construction of the shed. We have passed your feedback onto the team as well.

We purchased a 3x3 premier shed. Its the biggest piece of …….. holes were NOT all punched through, so we had to pre drill them all. For a shed that is supposed to just go together this did not. The walls and roof do not line up. absco just said to drill more. Now we do not have much of an overhang, so it is going to leak. We had to end up end up getting a builder to come and try and fit-the roof. 3 full days to put a shed together was a joke. Has anyone else had these issues. What have you done about the roof

Thank you for your response.
As confirmed to your Absco team by phone I have managed to construct the shed with the door opening on the opposite side. It took a couple of attempts moving one internal brace and drilling holes on both top and bottom of the long horizontals where the door opens.

Installing the roof on a space saver 3 x 1.5 x 2.08 and found that all the holes do not line up across the back. Frustrated that this is the case as will now have leaks. Have I done something wrong? Shouldn’t have to use silicon to waterproof misaligned pre drilled holes

Absco Sheds
Absco Sheds   DM

Lew N · Absco Garden Sheds

I am needing to replace an old 3x3 garden shed .
The current one overhangs the fence line and part of the overhang will be cut off to allow a new fence .
I’m wanting to use the existing slab but there is no excess slab for me to move the shed forward.
I’m wondering how far the overhang protrudes on the new sheds. If it’s less than the old ones I might get lucky.

Absco Sheds
Absco Sheds   DM   

Hi Lew, Thank you for the question. Our Premier 3m x 3m garden shed model requires an overhang at the front and rear of the shed of approx. 35mm. This overhang is required so as to let water out and allow any water to fall on the outside wall of the shed. If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to reach out or email our team admin@absco.com.au

Hi . I have recently purchased The Absco Space Saver Shed Model: 15081SECOK and have found during assembly that some parts of the Roof Panel Assembly do not comply with the assembly instructions. When i started to assemble the roof panel part: 43D x 2 and tried to fit the long channel item 81E x 2 i found that the channel was to short by about 100mm+. I triple checked the parts / numbers and discovered that the parts did not match. Is Absco able to supply me the correct items please.

Hello, I have got the 4.48x2.26 workshop shed. We just paid a Concreter $2200 to pour a slab according to the shed instructions, which stated a 75mm wide rebate. However, the concreter advised that the industry standard is 35mm x 45mm. So this is what he did.
We’re worried that this will have an impact when we construct the shed, can you please confirm if it will still work with the changes rebate size? Thanks!

Absco Sheds
Absco Sheds   DM   

Hi Shareece, We recommend a total slab size of 4580 x 2360 for this size shed, with the rebate edge being 75mm width and 25mm depth. If the slab is the correct size but the rebate edge is only 45mm wide, it will just mean that the shed and portal frame will all sit on the inner/raised area of the slab. Alternatively, the edge could be cut so the rebate is 75mm wide, and then the centre frame will just be trimmed by 35mm (the depth of the rebate) during install.
Please do not hesitate if you have any further questions on this so we can assist.

Hello
I have purchased a reverse skillion Sd 15081RSK - can I swap the door to the right hand side instead of the left?

Maya · Absco Garden Sheds

I just setup 3x3 absco shed which i bought from bunning. The water has been entering in from the side pannel. Does it usually happens . We installed as per the guide. The side pannel snap lock is all good. When it rains water just fills up outside from the bottom of side pannel and enter inside the shed. How can i stop water entering?

Andrew
Andrew  

Hey Maya not knowing how you've assembled your shed, there could be a number of reasons. If you have it on a flat concrete slab and it doesn't have a rebate or is not level, or if its on the ground flat with no drainage around it, water will ingress. If you post a bit more information on how it's sited someone may offer more insight.

Maya
Maya  

Its flat concrete surface . I have already seal the gap between concrete n shed but actuall the water is entering in between of side pannels.

Absco Sheds
Absco Sheds   DM   

Hi Maya, Thank you for reaching out. Some water ingress can occur using as flat concrete slab as Andrew noted, however having sealed this, your issue shouldn't be occurring. Are you able to send some photos through of where the water is entering (inside and outside) so that we can have a look? Thank you.

can you move a 30232gecok shed after it is built

Absco Sheds
Absco Sheds   DM   

Hi Robert, Yes you can move the shed after it's been built! You'll need to undo the dynabolts in location A and use new ones in location B. Make sure you reassemble the shed in location B in the same manner as per instruction manuals, and ensure to use the same dynabolts for re-anchoring in the new position. The Absco Team
