Pressure treated and boasting a superior construction, the Premium 12x8 Tongue and Groove Shed from Forest is a handsome, robust shed sure to provide superb storage for all your gardening equipment or for use as a fine garden workshop.
One of Forest's Premium Tongue and Groove Shed range, this wooden shed is constructed with 12mm tongue and groove cladding supported by a robust 45x28mm frame. As well as providing a modern, handsome appearance with sleek, clean lines, the tongue and groove boards tightly interlock to create a build that is strong, weathertight and less prone to warping. This premium construction continues in the roof and floor - both also 12mm tongue and groove. The wooden floor is supported by pressure treated bearers resulting in a floor that is able to withstand years of footfall and the storage of your heavier garden equipment. This is far superior to the OSB floors of standard sheds. The tongue and groove roof of this apex 12x8 shed is supplied with a felt covering and finished with barge boards and a finial. With eaves around 4 inches higher than standard sheds, you'll have a comfortable, reliable space in which to store and manoeuvre your items.
For long-lasting quality, the timber of this workshop has been pressure treated. This forces preservative deep inside the wood, providing an impressive 15 year guarantee against rot. Plus, you'll save time and money as - unlike dip treated sheds - this shed does not require annual retreatments. All the wood is FSC certified as being from sustainable sources.
Access to the shed is via double doors. The doors are reinforced with double Z framing which strengthens the doors for security and also prevents dropping over time. The doors are fitted with a key-operated rim lock offering further security. You can place the doors at either of the gable ends to suit your garden. Six windows, including two opening windows with multi-position latches, are included with the shed. The glazing is 3mm acrylic - a safer, shatter-resistant alternative to glass.
Delivery is FREE to most UK postcodes. Instructions and fixtures are all included. An installation service is available to purchase for expert, no hassle assembly.

Plastic Shed Base Kit
Quick and simple to install, the 12x8 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 40mm. This pack contains 40 squares and heavy-duty, commercially-graded weed membrane.
Please be advised that we do not assemble plastic shed bases as part of our installation service. You must prepare the base yourself in advance of the installers' visit.

Premium Tongue and Groove Construction
WELL MADE IN THE UK
The majority of timber we use is from trees grown in sustainable forests in the UK.
ASSEMBLY SERVICE AVAILABLE
Our assembly service is available on selected products. Take a look at the options when purchasing your shed.
More effective than the surface coating provided by dip treatment, pressure treatment forces preservative deep inside the timber. This results in 15 years of anti-rot protection WITHOUT the need to re-treat. This will save you around £200 in money and time.
Far superior to OSB flooring which can sag, a tongue & groove floor will withstand years of heavy storage and footfall. The wooden floor provides greater support for the building and has a much more attractive finish.
Increased security is provided by a key-operated rim lock and hidden hinges, providing safety for the shed’s contents and peace of mind for you.
Boasting a premium tongue & groove construction, this shed features 12mm tongue & groove boards which interlock to create a sleek, weathertight finish that is robust, durable and handsome. The tight construction also resists warping.
Providing ventilation and light for a pleasant working and storage space, the opening windows are shatterproof and secured with high-quality latches. To suit your garden, the windows can be placed on either side of the apex models.
Stronger and more secure than the basic ledge-braced doors on standard sheds, these doors are reinforced with double Z bracing. This higher quality build also makes them less likely to drop or warp.
Comes with a 15 year anti-rot guarantee.
Pressure Treatment. No need for annual re treatment.
Smaller sections make transportation and handling easy.
Made in the UK.
Pressure Treatment Process Explained
The Pressure Treatment process for timber has been applied to products for a number of years; the key benefit of this process is that the preservative is forced under vacuum pressure right deep into the heart of the wood and the grain structure. The preservative becomes an integral part of the wood; giving a long life and protection against rot.
This process also means that you never have to apply preservatives to your garden shed, and it allows the natural colours of the timber to show through and so your shed blends easily within your garden. Surprisingly, our Pressure Treated Sheds are only slightly more expensive than our Dip Treated Sheds.
Timber is loaded into chamber and a vacuum empties timber cells of air.
Cylinder is flooded under vacuum with preservative.
Preservative is forced deep into timber using hydraulic pressure.
Another vacuum extracts excess preservative.
Timber draws in surface excess of preservative under low pressure, then is left to dry.
NO NEED TO RE-TREAT - SAVING YOU TIME AND MONEY!
