    The window to the left of the balcony normally has mesh in, I'm just in the process of replacing it because it had a hole in.
    The shutter leaning up against the side goes in the window in bad weather and the perspex goes around the balcony.



    I normally only use the mesh door in the summer.



    It looks a bit empty because I've taken away some furniture for cleaning.

    It sounds as though I need to keep the window and balcony less covered during the day. Please can anyone advise what temperature it needs to be outside for the covers to be up? Thank you.

    You could insulate the inside of the shed (eg polystyrene sheets from Wickes between the battens) and then cover with large sheets of thin exterior ply. That could then be painted to protect it and make it easy to wipe down. It would make it less likely to get condensation. Even just painting the bare wood inside will help to stop mould growth. It doesn't have to be an expensive paint - I've used white household emulsion before.

    Thank you, I thought about insulating it but it gets so hot in the summer, I thought it would make the heat worse. That's a good idea about paint though. I was thinking I could paint the ceiling and the parts out of their reach with a standard fence paint if I keep them out while it dries out.

    It looks great insulation should make it warmer in winter and cooler in summer

    I agree for the cooler in summer: we painted ours white as it sits in full sun, put radiator reflector film under the roof felt (shiny side up), insulated as above and yeah, it's pretty good in summer
