Moving a shed....simple job....not so, it seems!

Hi there,

Im hoping for a little advice if possible. I have a shed that is 9ftx7ft and about 7ft in height. It has a pent roof and the previous owner erected it and added stud walls which he then nail gunned from the outside through the wooden panels. Needless to say it is solid!

As it cant be simply taken to pieces without breaking the panels, I wondered if anyone thought there was any mileage in simply cutting at the ends to create 4 basic panels to then be fixed in place once moved. I know its not ideal but wondered if it was a consideration. If so, is there a preferable electric saw that will go through both metal (nails) and the wood? Any help would be good! Thanks

Norton Red Diamond Blade Hard
You can buy the above mentioned diamond tipped cutting blade from Screwfix.
It will cut through steel lintels, your shed will not be a problem.
