    I have a large 10x7 ft plastic shed that I plan to use as a grooming salon in my private garden. Plumber has said the weight of bath filled with water may be too much for plastic flooring although it's sitting on paving slabs.
    Anyone else converted a plastic type shed and had problems ? Also re heating I was going to use a small freestanding heater for winter months. Plumber says this is too dangerous?
    Any tips or personal experience would be gratefully received. Thanks in advance. Emma

    It sounds too small tbh. It sounds like the plumber has given you good advice. I think plastic sheds are designed solely for storage. You would need a purpose built cabin. Google grooming pods.

    Thank you for taking the time to reply. I've attached a photo. Understand what you mean however the last group my spaniel had was in a cabin about the same size so not sure really.

    I can see why you want to use it. Can you ask why he specifically thinks it's not safe and make adjustments? Like a different kind of heater and taking up the plastic floor and cobefio the slabs with floorboards or plywood?
