First of a garden shed shouldnt be blinded by the price. Yes some garden sheds are higher in price but they have a return for that money. For example, if their sides are cedar and vinyl then they are high quality and won’t have a problem withstanding the weather.
The good news too is that the sheds with better construction normally are only a few hundred dollars more than the cheaper ones. Sure you may be saving a few dollars with a cheaper one, but if the equipment inside is expensive, you want to be sure it is safe and protected.
