Gazeebos are fine if you have an extra ratchet system to tie them down..

I've seen too many rescues of gazeebos that have desided that the floor or the other side of the field is a better place to be. Cheap though if they brake.

Build yourself a lean too by the side of your house, with perspex roofing, a really simple yet solid construction should do the trick.

No - don't do that.

We got a shed like that - took two of us two full days of advanced swearing to assemble the thing, that was with 2 power screwdrivers --- and in summer the condensation just drips off the inside of the roof!

Just like the old allotment sheds

It is green, only because the materials were already that colour...

Yes, it has a ali frame of strong construction and can be bolted to the ground, it stands pretty high and about 25 foot long, 12 foot wide or something like that.

if you opt for the tent, then once its set up you can fibreglass it if you want it to be more permanant. all the council see is a tent in the garden, fibeglass and even a brick wall built round the inside can make a good workshed out of a simple tent.
