So after placing an order then reading the reviews I was absolutely distraught with how everyone was slating manomano. I researched this company at length afterwards to find it's like a meet and greet company that presumably can offer cheaper prices this way. With this the bad reviews I was seeing are reviews that reflect multiple companies manomano deal with not just manomano. The product arrived earlier than stated which I was really happy with as I couldn't wait to get started. It was arranged of course it wasnt just dumped on me.
The driver had no problem unloading round the corner as access had to be round the back. Unloaded in 10 minutes on his own. Had a little chat while he did it too. Very friendly.
Excellent for the money. The only issues I have are.
Travel legs put in to protect the base edging were hard to remove as the nails used were barbed this resulted in a piece snapping as I removed them.
The window supports under the window were not straight but easy to resolve.
The door needs an extra few screws in to hold them together. Mine started coming apart after a few opens but nothing major.
The roof was not square but easy if you know what your doing.
The good bits
The build its self was easy I didn't really need the instructions till the trims needed putting on and i had a pile of wood left. It took 2 of us about 3 hours for main build and just myself about an hour felt.
Overall I am really happy with the product. On comparison I saved £600 so the minor adjustments I had to make were well worth the save.
I plan to board it out with plasterboard which will be really easy as the floor roof and walls all fit together perfectly. The way the windows are made it's really easy to customise to open.
Good value great product and the company for this was manomano.
