8' x 6' Forest Reverse Apex Shed
Product code: BSD25408
A reverse apex shed offering you a space-efficient layout and excellent features, this 8x6 Forest Overlap Dip Treated Reverse Apex 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.
The high quality build of the 6x8 shed is further enhanced by the metal roof truss bracket, a bracket which supports the joins of the roof, adding strength as well as aiding a simpler build by ensuring the angles of the roof are easily and correctly aligned.
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 made from 8mm OSB and finished with smooth planed barge boards and a decorative finial.
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:
- Green mineral felt - more durable and attractive than standard black sand felt.
- Superior PolyFelt – boasts twice the tear resistance of industry-standard felt and, with a superb 15 year life expectancy, has three times the lifespan.
- 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 reverse apex shed features 2 windows which, due to the unique modular format of this shed, you can choose to place to the left or the right of the door during assembly. Please see the layout drawing for further details. The glazing is shatterproof PET which is made from recycled materials; it will not yellow or become brittle over time.
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 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 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.
