Joking apart if the buildings are away from your house you stand little chance of keeping them out, we have converted an old dutch barn into a workshop, it has an inner lining of 18 mm ply so they have to unscrew the tin first then cut through the ply, the doors are still vulnerable though, any tools are locked in a strong room inside the shed with a security door and 50mm flooring as the side walls, it is really hard to cut through even using a circular saw, there is racking both sides which is bolted through so they have to dismantle that first, again the door is the weak part but the shed is only a few metres from our house so hopefully they wont want to make any noise. I have heard of people using geese in their shed to ensure of a lot of noise, better than a dog that might bite a visitor during the day

It's about half a mile up the road, I'm just wanting to make it hard for them to get in, so they'll bugger off somewhere else. There's not too much in it, just a few bits, they've stolen all the power tools, unless they really like cake bags full of bags 🤣

Another advantage is that you can hear them from half a mile away! If you were in the workshop when you found them.....you might end up leaving a DNA sample...
