Dimension Sizes. 

All Dimension Sizes used in Descriptions are Nominal and for Guide Use only.  Garden Sheds are quoted  based on their Nominal Outside Size suggested by the Manufacturer.

Usually the Size quoted is the Out Side Corner Points of the Roof.  So the Inside of the Shed can be smaller.  This Syntax is adopted  because if the Inside Size was quoted then Shed might not Fit into Gaps that Customers have prepared for the Shed in their Garden. Please look to the Detailed Dimension Sizes in the Shed Description.  Some Brands quote these in Metric Other in Imperial Sizes.
