Description

The 8x6 Forest Overlap Dip Treated Apex Wooden Shed is made in the UK and comes with a great 10-year guarantee. Offering excellent value for money, its smart modular design makes it very easy to assemble and incredibly strong too.

This is one of Forest Garden’s fantastic range of garden sheds, all of which combine market-leading shed knowhow, top-quality materials and exceptional value for money. This shed is constructed from small sections of 7mm overlap cladding on a solid 28mm frame, which is why it’s much easier to assemble and far stronger than other wooden sheds. What’s more, wherever the panels join together, cover strips keep the shed completely weathertight.

The 14mm pressure-treated solid timber floor includes pressure-treated bearers, so you can store heavier tools and machinery with complete confidence, and without any concern over ground moisture. The 8mm OSB apex roof includes a strong metal truss bracket, to reinforce the structure, and a black sand felt covering, which is completely weatherproof and will keep your shed’s contents dry.

You can gain easy access to this shed via a single door, reinforced with double-Z framing. It can be hung with a left or right-hand opening - the choice is entirely yours. Tamper-proof hidden hinges and a padlock-ready hasp and staple fastening (padlock not included) help keep valuable items safe.

The 2 PET-glazed windows are made from recycled materials, completely shatterproof and will never discolour or weaken over time. They provide plenty of natural light and can be fitted either side of the shed - again, the choice is yours.

Other notable features include high eaves, offering plenty of headroom and the opportunity to store taller items, as well as smooth-planed barge boards and a finial, both of which enhance the shed’s attractive traditional appearance.

Forest Garden’s wooden sheds are always built using FSC®-certified timber, so are exclusively sourced from sustainable, well-managed forests. This particular shed comes dip-treated and should be coated in a quality wood preservative, once a year, to maintain its smart appearance and validate the 10-year anti-rot guarantee. You can purchase a pressure-treated version too, which does not require re-treatment and comes with a fantastic 15-year anti-rot guarantee.

All the necessary fixtures and fittings are included, along with clear instructions for a simple assembly.

A professional installation service, a pressure-treated shed base and wide double doors are all available as optional upgrades, as is a lean-to kit, offering you additional sheltered garden storage space. Please note that this lean-to kit is pressure-treated, making it a lighter shade of wood to the shed.

Free delivery is available to most UK addresses.

Shed Base Options

Wooden Shed Base

Wooden Shed Base Kit

As an alternative to laying slabs or concrete, this shed base is a faster, more cost effective DIY solution.

The wooden shed base consists of a framework that is made from UC4 incised timber which has been pressure treated. The pressure treatment ensures that the framework is robust and is guaranteed to resist rot for an impressive 15 years.

Size of base: 7.5cm (h) x 236cm (w) x 182.6cm (d)

Plastic Shed Base

Plastic Shed Base Kit

Quick and simple to install, the 8x6 plastic shed base kit is ideal for avoiding the hassle of laying slabs or concrete when preparing a base for a new shed. Its interlocking design makes it easy to put together and, though lightweight, it provides a very strong and durable base for the shed. Made from 100% recycled plastic, this shed base is eco-friendly. Also, it can be reused if the shed is repositioned. The base allows for ventilation and drainage under the shed, helping to keep the shed floor dry.

To install the base, simply interlock the square grids together and lay onto a firm, level area of ground. We recommend using 15kg of 10mm pea gravel per square (gravel not included). Each square is 500 x 500 x 50mm. This pack contains 20 squares and heavy-duty, commercially-graded weed membrane.
