Your garden only has a certain amount of room. You want a shed that won’t dominate the area but will offer ample storage space for garden equipment, lawn mower and other accessories. Remember to leave 1-2ft around the shed for maintenance. Also, consider the space available to open the door and any windows.

More Info

+

Overlap cladding is the most economic choice of wooden cladding. It consists of boards constructed on the frame with each board slightly overlapping the one below.

More Info

+

A shed will be either dip-treated or pressure treated.

Dip treatment involves coating the wood’s surface in an anti-rot preservative. This will provide the timber with a 10-year anti-rot guarantee when supported by annual retreatment.


Pressure treatment involves forcing anti-rot preservative deep into the wood. This will provide the timber with a 15-year anti-rot guarantee without the need for annual retreatment.

Your treatment choice will depend on budget and time. If you have more capital now, opt for pressure treatment as this will save time and money in the long run and demand less maintenance. If you have a tighter budget, opt for a dip treated shed but be prepared to spend time and money treating the shed each year.

Pressure Treatment is not currently available with Shiplap cladding.

More Info

Floor Included! A strong 14mm pressure-treated boarded timber floor is included. It is built to withstand storage of heavier items as well as years of footfall.



The floor is supported and strengthened by pressure treated bearers. A timber floor is far superior to the OSB that comes with standard sheds.

Your shed will be supplied with no felt covering if no option is selected above.

For our Overlap and Shiplap Sheds we have 3 different roof coverings options including:



Our Green Mineral Felt offers a stronger, more attractive finish than standard black sand felt.



Our Premium Polyfelt is twice as tear resistant than standard industry felt and has a 15yr life expectancy.



Our Superior SkyGuard EPDM Shed Roof Kit is available on some of our sheds. These roof kits are easy to apply and can withstand all the elements to provide an astounding 20 year guarantee and 50 year life expectancy. The kit includes the roof membrane itself, water-based adhesive, adhesive applicator and edge sealant. Please allow 3-7 working days for delivery of the kit. The membrane will adhere to timber or OSB roofs.

Please note: Our Tongue and Groove Sheds are only available with green mineral felt.

More Info

All sheds need to be installed on a reliable, level surface. If not, the shed will shift, doors and windows misalign, and the integrity of the shed will be undermined.

As an alternative to laying slabs or concrete, our wooden and plastic shed bases are faster, more cost-effective DIY solutions. They are recommended if you do not have an existing solid, level surface. Wooden shed bases are not available for our Tongue and Groove Sheds.

Please note: Installation is only available with wooden shed base kits. This service is not currently available on the plastic shed base kits. Wooden bases will be delivered with the shed. Plastic bases are delivered separately, within 3-7 working days.

More Info

+

Our 'Shed Installation' applies to the shed only.

If you have purchased our wooden base for which you also require installation, you should select the ‘Shed & Wood Base Install’ option which includes the shed and the base.

Please note: we do not install plastic bases or other accessories.

We will contact you after checkout to arrange your installation date.

Description

Boasting great design features such as a unique roof truss bracket and extra framing, the 8x6 Forest Overlap Dip Treated Pent Wooden Shed is made by Forest Garden, one of the UK’s leading shed manufacturers.

This wooden shed has sturdy 7mm straight-cut overlap cladding which allows for natural timber movement in changing weather conditions and is supported by a 28x28 frame. As a modular shed with smaller panels, there is more framing than in standard sheds, resulting in a stronger build. The modular design also means the panels are less prone to warping. Joins in the modular construction are protected by outer weather covering strips to prevent any water ingress.

All of this shed’s timber has been dip treated to offer a 10 year guarantee against rot and fungal decay when supported by annual retreatment. You can purchase an upgrade to pressure treatment which, rather than just an outer coating, forces preservative deep into the timber resulting in an impressive 15 year guarantee against rot and fungal decay without the need for further treatments. This upgrade will save you time and money in the long run.

While most sheds come with an OSB floor as standard, this garden shed includes a super 14mm boarded timber floor. Far superior to OSB flooring, this wooden floor is built to withstand storage of your heavier items as well as years of footfall. The floor is further strengthened by pressure treated bearers.

The roof is built from 8mm OSB and its pent design makes it ideal for siting up against a fence or wall. Many people regard the sleek lines of a pent shed as a more modern option than an apex shed.

We offer a selection of weather-resistant roof coverings for this Forest Shed; if you do not select one from the drop-down menu, your shed will be supplied without a roof covering. You can choose from 3 weatherproof roof cover options:

  1. Green mineral felt - more durable and attractive than standard black sand felt.
  2. Superior PolyFelt €“ boasts twice the tear resistance of industry-standard felt and, with a superb 15 year life expectancy, has three times the lifespan.
  3. SkyGuard EPDM Roof Membrane Kit €“ an innovative roof felt alternative with an extra-impressive 20-year guarantee and an incredible 50 year life expectancy. Providing your shed roof with unrivalled weatherproof qualities, this superior roof kit features the roof membrane, a water-based adhesive, an adhesive applicator and edge sealant for a straightforward application.

Installation of the Green Mineral Felt and Polyfelt are both included with shed installation if the felt and installation are both purchased. Please be aware that installation of the Skyguard EPDM is not included as part our shed installation service.

You can rest assured that your stored contents will be secure. The single door of this shed features Z-bracing for increased strength while the hidden hinges cannot be tampered with from the outside. The door is fitted with a hasp and staple closure, ready for you to add a padlock (padlock not included). The single door can be left or right hand opening.

This pent shed features 2 windows. The glazing is shatterproof PET which is made from recycled materials; it will not yellow or become brittle over time. During assembly, you can choose to place the windows to the left or the right of the door to suit your garden.

Manufactured in the UK, this garden shed is made from UK-grown FSC certified timber.

Instructions for a straightforward self-assembly are included. The smaller panels of the modular design are far easier to manoeuvre during build than standard shed panels. Or you can leave it all to the experts and purchase our installation upgrade. This shed should only be built on a level, hard surface and ideally placed on a shed base.

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.
