    8x6 Plastic Shed Base Kit -


    Avoid the hassle or mess of laying slabs or concrete with our ProBASE 8x6 plastic shed base kit, when preparing a base for your new shed. It is very quick to install as its interlocking design makes it easy to put together and, though lightweight, it will provide a very strong and durable base for your shed.

    Made from 100% recycled plastic, this shed base is eco-friendly. Also, you can reuse the base if you decide to reposition your shed. The base allows for ventilation and drainage under the shed, helping to keep the shed floor dry.

    To install the base, you simply interlock the square grids together and lay onto a firm, level area of ground. We recommend using 15kg of 10m pea gravel per square (gravel not included).

    Each square is 500 x 500 x 40mm. This pack contains 20 squares. For your convenience, a heavy-duty, commercially-graded membrane is also included.

    • Super strong interlocking grid system shed base
    • Eco-friendly high quality recycled plastic
    • Ventilated design
    • Includes heavy-duty membrane
    • Comprehensive instructions and customer service support
    • 2 year guarantee

A safe and secure garden home for your children to enjoy, the 8' x 5'6 Shire Loft 2 Storey Kids Wooden Playhouse (2.40m x 1.67m) is designed and built in Great Britain to the highest possible standards.

Expertly made from superior 12mm tongue and groove shiplap cladding, on a sturdy 34mm² frame, this wooden Wendy house is robust, durable and completely weathertight. The floor is also constructed from 12mm tongue and groove, so is sure to withstand the rigours of playtime, while the 11mm OSB apex roof has a weatherproof felt cover to keep your little ones snug and dry.

Scalloped barge boards, a diamond-shaped finial, attractive roof overhang and a sumptuous smooth-planed finish all ensure this wooden playhouse enjoys an exceptionally attractive appearance, which is sure to complement the rest of your garden beautifully.

Your children can gain easy access to the playhouse via a single door, fitted with a magnetic safety catch and a small, diamond-shaped window. Three single-glazed opening windows on the ground floor provide further light and ventilation, making for a pleasant, healthy environment.

A sturdy wooden ladder leads to the first-floor area, offering your children even more room to play. This level includes a further window, fixed for safety purposes. What’s more, all of the glazing is made from styrene, which is completely shatterproof and far safer than conventional glass.

The windows come with decorative shutters, while the 2 window boxes give you the opportunity to decorate the playhouse with flowers or store small toys. This playhouse adheres to BS EN 71-1:2014 safety standards for your added peace of mind.

This kids’ playhouse has been dip-treated to provide a 10-year anti-rot guarantee, when supported by annual retreatment. To increase the weather-resistance of your playhouse, opt for our Top Coat upgrade. A protective wood stain, the Top Coat is a waterproof coating which resists algal and fungal attack as well as nourishing the wood. Usually, customers need to apply a preservative upon assembly of this dip-treated playhouse; this Top Coat upgrade means that this is not required. The stain comes in the shade of "gold" – an orangey-yellow hue.

  • Built from 12mm tongue and groove shiplap cladding on a 34mm² frame
  • 12mm tongue and groove floor
  • 11mm OSB apex roof fitted with weatherproof felt cover
  • Single door with magnetic safety catch and diamond-shaped window
  • Ladder leads to first floor area
  • 3 opening windows on ground floor
  • 1 fixed window on first floor
  • All windows made from shatterproof safety glazing
