Great little shed
Bought from ALDI (2019) after pricing similar sheds from Bunnings. Was sceptical after seeing other poor reviews but I can’t fault this little piece. The instructions were simple to understand and while it took an afternoon to assemble, it certainly wasn’t difficult. The only quirk is that the outdoor lock is secured by small screws which could be undone with a screwdriver, so will be changing these out for rivets.
Purchased in September 2019 for $179.00.
If you are not skilled in general construction you may wish to consider employing a builder.
Not my words - the above advice is inside the package in the instructions.

The components are more like a collection of raw materials than a kit.
The construction involves drilling, riveting and a considerable amount of work.
poorly designed very flimsy
spent almost the entire weekend assembling this product from poorly illustrated plans. 200 self drilling screws and multiple rivets.

End result is a flimsy shed which I thoroughly expect to collapse in the next strong wind.

Too Flimsy Sheets:
Once started found that the gauge of the sheet metal was a bit flimsy. When I was driving the self-drilling self-tapping metal screws into the corrugated sheet-metal sides not only was there a risk of the sheet metal buckling from pressing the drill to get the screw to cut into the metal but also once the screw was in two layers of metal it couldn't lock in and just kept spinning around because the thin metal just stripped the "thread". This stripping even happened with the most gentle drill/screwdriver setting. The resul...
Questions & Answers
this is peter chou from victoria. i have bought the 58275 gardenline bike shed last september (2018), but we only unpacked lately and started the installation this week. however, the big issue is that we have a missing sheet for the back panels (ie we have only 2 SW11, instead of 3 sheets of SW11). please advise how we could arrange refund. cheers! from peter chou of 0434474928
Sorry , I'm not from the company I was just a customer like yourself I just wrote the review because the process of construction was so frustrating. Sorry to hear that you didn't get all the parts, if that happened to me as well as the other problems I had with the item I would really be ...xxx... Good luck.
PS I recall there was a construction guide with some contacts at the back, perhaps that may help.
