Description

If you’re a discerning gardener or home owner who wants to spend more time in your garden, we have a superior shed for you to enjoy. The Forest Garden Retreat 8x5 Luxury Shed in Grey combines high specification materials, thoughtful features and a timeless, understated design, making it a remarkably posh shed for gardeners who are particularly proud of their gardens.

Thoughtfully designed and expertly crafted here in the UK, this garden building oozes class, possessing both beauty and brawn in abundance. Built from kiln-dried, smooth-planed redwood timber boards, mounted on a robust 45mm x 28mm PAR framework, the attractive, traditional featheredge appearance belies a wonderfully strong and durable structure.

Each individual board overlaps its neighbours by more than 25mm, resulting in a wall thickness of over 20mm in those areas. This makes for a weathertight, insulated wooden shed, more akin to a log cabin, in which you can remain snug throughout the year.

All of the wood has been pressure treated and is supplied with a superb 15 year anti-rot guarantee, so no further treatment is required, saving you money and leaving you more time to do the things you enjoy. The shed is finished with a premium quality grey paint with other models available in cream or green to suit your preference.

Furthermore, the timber is both PEFC and FSC®-certified, so you can rest assured that the timber is only sourced from sustainable, well-managed forests and is fully endorsed by all of the major environmental charities.

The floor is constructed from premium 12mm interlocking, smooth-planed, pressure treated tongue and groove boards, supported by pressure treated bearers, so lends itself perfectly to the storage of heavier items, as well as ensuring that your prized possessions enjoy protection from ground moisture.

The apex roof is also built from 12mm interlocking, smooth-planed, pressure treated tongue and groove boards, making it equally robust. The steeply-pitched design creates a superior small shed with a truly singular character, as well as allowing ample headroom for even our tallest customers.

This roof is covered in Grade 1 Canadian Red Cedar shingles which are the same specification as those used on exclusive residential properties in Canada, so you needn’t lose any sleep over inclement British weather.

As the shingles age, their rich, warm colour develops into a subtle shade of silver while their natural oils provide complete protection from the elements, rot and insects, resulting in a life expectancy of over 50 years.

You can gain easy access to this cosy 8x5 shed via a single door which can be secured by a rim lock to keep your valuable items safe from unwanted attention.

Whether you plan on potting plants, carrying out a spot of DIY, or simply relaxing with a good book, the snug interior provides an exceptionally welcoming environment and is a place where you’ll love spending time. And if you need a bit of extra storage space too? Well, the upper frame rails make the perfect home for shelving.

Fitted with premium-quality latches, the 2 opening windows are constructed from lightweight styrene, renowned for being near-unbreakable and far safer than conventional glass. The windows can be fitted to open from the sides or the top to suit your preference.

These windows ensure an abundance of natural light, as well as ample ventilation, whether you’re relaxing or working inside.

This exquisite 8x5 wooden shed has dimensions of 250cm x 174cm x 257cm. It is also available as a 6x4 shed.

**Our team of professional installers will deliver and assemble your Forest Retreat Shed. However, due to the substantial nature of this garden building, it is essential to prepare a level concrete base in advance of their visit. **
