Are you sure that you can run a freezer in an outdoor shed?
I ask this because I thought that there was an ambient temperature range
specified by the manufacturer within which the freezer would run fine
but, outwith the range, the freezer will cut out. Over the course of
the Seasons, it is almost certain that , in the winter, the shed
temperature will fall below the minimum value and, in the summer, exceed
the maximum value?
We have a covered area twixt house and garage known as "The Tunnel" and a
fridge and a freezer have been functioning perfectly well in there for over
five years. Maybe some freezers have different requirements or, then
again, maybe nobody has told the freezers. ;o)
Obviously you will want electricity run into the shed. If it is metal, you
will not want to cut or drill it. I cut a length of garden hose (about a
foot) and set it into the concrete base while we were laying it in a U shape
so that one end would come up inside the shed and the other outside. When
the concrete set and the shed had been erected I poured hot water into the
hose pipe which softened it and made it easy to pull out, leaving a smooth
sided tube. Then, with the help of a little Fairy Liquid I threaded in the
armoured cable. To make it water tight I sealed the entrances with
silicone sealant. Works a treat and has done for 5+ years.
If you're minded to get a wooden shed, then I highly recommend a tongue
and groove from Tiger Shed. You can check them out at:
They also do metal sheds but I've not brought one from them.
