Feedback: Ordering on the website was easy, good communications from the company, erection of the shed was quick and well-completed. Very happy with the service I received all-round!! This is a really first-class product, light years ahead of my old shed!!! It is really well made, waterproof, and looks good too ....
Response: Thanks for your feedback. I'm pleased that your new garden shed meets with your full approval. These sheds are some of the nicest looking around as well. Regards Robin
The British man 'in the street' is pretty clued up in most aspects of the garden and also tries to get on with most other people. Generally all they want is a quiet life after a hard days work and maybe relaxing in their garden, on the odd warmer days, with a drink and to be able to reflect on the day. They can look around at their garden shed, which is their own little castle, and reflect on the work which has gone into making it as well as the general construction of it.
If it was bought on the web from one of the 'cheap sheds' web sites they would probably have had to built it themselves, which can be within most peoples' capabilities. Or you would find that they would have had it assembled by a garden shed company, like 1st Choice Leisure Buildings, at no extra charge. This would ensure that the shed was built properly and would come with a proper guarantee on the building ensuring a long life.
What I would find surprising is that any public school boy or Bullingdon Club member would have the inclination, nous (for something so manual) or the wish to build a garden shed. Can you imagine them wishing to make their hands rough from this sort of manual work? I can't.
This is makes it even more surprising that David Cameron, claims to have constructed a garden workshop shed. He did say it took him as a long time, which I'm sure it would have done, certainly if it was one those cheap sheds available in the large DIY stores or on one of the cheap shed web sites. These tend to come in many pieces which all have to be nailed together with many shed parts having to be cut on site. With pieces of chipboard or OSB panels for the roof AND floor, again in small sections, this would have been a nightmare for him.
He did also claim he had also assembled some IKEA furniture, which went down like a lead balloon as he was addressing staff at a B&Q store in Eastleigh at the time. He was in the town campaigning in the forthcoming by-election caused by the resignation of Chris Hulme, the disgraced, former member of the Tory led Coalition government. The B&Q workers jeered when IKEA was mentioned and David Cameron try to play it down by saying it took him a long while as it was very difficult. He said that his wife was a dab hand at DIY so perhaps she should have built the IKEA furniture and garden workshop shed for him.
In an earlier claim he had said, when asked about whether he had eaten a Cornish Pasty, he claimed he loved a hot pasty. He further said the last time he bought one was, as he remembered, at Leeds station, from the West Cornwall Pasty Company. The choice whether it was a small or large one was the thing he appeared to remember the most. However, when it was pointed out that the this branch of the West Cornwall Pasty Company closed in 2007, a Downing Street spokesman said perhaps he had bought it from a different outlet or maybe even a different part of the country.
It's rather worrying that the leader of the government has tendencies to forget some of the facts of day to day life but he does have rather a busy job. Besides trying to be a little more diplomatic, or think before he speaks, perhaps he should use any woodworking skills to try to mend the Cabinet which can appear to fall apart from time to time. A little like those cheap sheds will do.
