Description

This 6x8 Overlap treated Shed is a middle size garden shed that fits into any garden easily and delivers both great value for money and great protection from the outside weather.

The 6x8 Overlap treated Shed has been designed to really offer the ultimate happiness in regards to pricing, using timber that has been treated by the supplier in order to keep it in good shape over the years. A free basecoat dip treatment has been applied which slows down the rot process and guarantees ten years rot free providing the shed is treated every 12 months.

The outdoor building has been constructed using a form of cladding called overlap, an option that reduces the cost overall which makes it ideal for people who are on a budget. The shed uses a reversal design which is better for some customers, made from slow grown European timber that excels the quality of other cheaper timbers. Whether you are storing tools, bikes or other general garden essentials, this shed will guarantee you great protection and security. A heavy OSB board has been used to create a strong flooring that eliminates the chance of a flooring break troughs and is supported by a set of pressure treated floor joists that allow for even distribution and keeps the floor elevated stopping rain damage.

The Apex roof used for this shed has been chosen as it adds space for head height as well as keeping rain running off the top. To keep it protected from harm a black sand felt is used to top the roof and this eliminates the chance of rain damage in harsh winters. At the front of the shed you find the single door which makes it really easy to access and has a butterfly latch to stop any chance of the door flying open when not in use. We do recommend that you add a padlock if you want to keep the door secure shut and prevent the chance of theft and unwanted damage.

Your 6x8 Overlap treated Shed has a single polycarbonate window made from styrene which is safer alternative to glass and provides you with cheap natural lighting when offered. The panel is easy to clean and replace if broken however it boasts a virtually unbreakable status.

Taking only 3-5 hours on average, this 8x6 Overlap treated Shed is not a hard shed to assemble thanks to the design and easy to follow instructions. However, this hassle can be removed by choosing to have one of our teams build it for you.

  • 10 year guarantee against rot
  • Unbreakable Polycarbonate windows with security screws
  • 6 inch higher eaves than most other shed brands
  • Strengthened door with extra diagonal framing
  • The barge boards are manufactured from smooth timber
  • Thick roof battens to provide additional strength
  • 8mm overlap cladding, 8mm-10mm solid sheet roof and floor and 28x28mm framing
  • And finally we have added a finial on the apex sheds simply to make them look better!

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 suitable for use on uneven ground.

The wooden shed base consists of a pressure treated framework and galvanised steel spikes. The pressure treatment ensures that the framework is robust and is guaranteed to resist rot for an impressive 15 years. Galvanised steel spikes are then secured to the framework. They are designed to sink straight into the ground, so installation is simple and quick.

 

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 10m 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.

Dip treated sheds

Dip Treatment Process Explained

Dip treatment is a tried and tested method of applying wood preservative to timber products, and the process is fairly straightforward. First, the timber is dipped into a cylinder containing a powerful wood preservative. The preservative is then absorbed into the surface of the timber and, after it’s removed and left to dry, it will be thoroughly protected it against both rot and fungal decay.

After the dip treatment process is completed, the timber will have a lovely orangey-brown hue, ensuring it will become an attractive feature of your garden, as well as complementing most fence panels. Of course, you can choose to stain your dip treated shed another colour upon assembly. If you’re interested in an affordable, practical, and sturdy dip treated shed, why not take a look at our featured products below?
