    Hi, looking to purchase a wooden shed for the front of the house 6 ft tall x 7 ft wide. Comes in either 3ft or 4 ft depth. Would a 3 ft really fit 3 x adult bikes? We can fit 4 ft but it’s tight but don’t want a shed that can’t actually grow with the kids bikes

    If it is in front of the house just be aware that it is subject to planning permission, you cannot put a shed in your front garden. That doesnt mean that you wont get away with it but just to be aware of.

    This only applies if it’s front of the front wall of the house which this won’t be, but thanks

    Apologies yea once it’s not forward of the front wall, anyway to get an idea of size, if they are road bikes the handlebar width would normally Max out at 44 centre to centre so say 46-47cm if you overlapped you two bikes at say 60-70cm you would have space in 3 foot when you count in any internal timbers. It’s possible but some others here might suggest if they have fit multiple bikes in that space
