Is it wooden or metal?

You could get a couple of these Louvre vents and hack some holes in the sides, near the roof to let the hot air out, if you have the door partly open, or a window.

Might need some felt to cover them on the inside in winter, but come to that problem later.

Shed is wooden pent
Don't have windows that open.
Don't like leaving door open due to having two young children.

What you showed Dave M is what I was thinking of buying. Just wondered if there was anything different.

I could always take the roof off. :lol:

I've recently lined the roof of my sheds with the foil-backed bubble-wrap insulation stuff. Got a 70m long roll of it (seconds) off eBay cheaply. Cuts the heat down very successfully.

the trouble is black tar/felt on a hot day will absorb a kw or 2 of energy every hour so you realy need 2 openings [one on either side ]for airflow

could you not go for a high level opening panel in the eaves :scratch: and a stable door if you dont want the kids in there
