It would be far cheaper to buy a ready-made shed, and get someone to assemble it.

Alot of shed/garage suppliers have good offers on at the moment, so might be cheaper to buy one ready made.
If you need a carpenter to build one, place your requirements on Post a Job, where you will then get a price.

ollie my answer to your question would be buy a new shed,because the price of timber and paying a carpenter to make it would treble the cost

a good carpenter would take about a day and a half to build that size of shed and materials would be about £100 so your looking at no more than £300 for the completed job

Hi Ollie,
to supply and fit basic 12'x6' double door timber shed, 11mm treated T&G cladding on a sturdy frame, premium T&G flooring, 10 year rot and fungal guarantee would cost £795.00
The cost would increase if there is additional ground work needed to lay the base,
also if you require windows in the shed,
Hope this helps Gary.
