Description

The 4-Window Double Door 8x6 Epping is a pressure-treated, overlap apex shed which is part of The Better Shed range from Forest Garden. This premium wooden shed features a clever modular design, which makes for easier assembly and a stronger garden storage shed. Its 4 windows make this 8x6 shed a pleasant storage and working space.

Expertly designed and built by one of the UK's leading shed manufacturers, The Better Shed's intelligent modular design means it is delivered in smaller sections, making it far easier to assemble than other garden sheds. This modular design also results in more extensive 28mm shed framing, ensuring an incredibly robust structure and far greater resistance to warping.

The Epping's walls are constructed from 7mm overlap cladding, which allows the natural movement of the timber throughout the changing seasons and aids efficient rainwater run-off. Wherever the panels join together, cover strips are used to ensure the structure remains weathertight. Pressure-treated and backed by a fantastic 15-year anti-rot guarantee, no further treatment is required, saving both time and money.

A 14mm pressure-treated solid timber floor with bearers not only provides a long-lasting, effective barrier against ground moisture, it allows for the storage of heavier tools and machinery too. The 8mm OSB apex roof comes with a metal truss bracket, for extra strength, and a felt covering.

Easy access to the shed is gained via double doors, which include double-Z framing to prevent them from dropping. Tamper-proof hidden hinges and a hasp and staple plate, designed for a padlock (padlock not included), help keep stored items safe.

Once inside, high eaves offer plenty of headroom and make it easy to store taller items, while 4 PET-glazed windows provide an abundance of natural light. These windows are made from recycled materials, virtually shatterproof and will never discolour or become brittle. They can be fitted either side of the structure, to suit the shed’s place in the garden.

All of the timber is FSC®-certified, which is the only wood certification scheme endorsed by the major environmental charities. Not only robust, weatherproof and ethical, this garden shed’s traditional design, smooth-planed barge boards and finial result in an incredibly attractive appearance.

Fixtures, fittings and clear instructions are included for a simple assembly, although a professional installation service is available to purchase as an optional upgrade. A pressure-treated shed base and a lean-to kit for extra sheltered storage space can be purchased as optional extras too.

Delivery is free to most UK addresses.

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.

Do you need a Better Shed?

Forest Garden are proud to introduce their latest innovation: The Better Shed. With three ranges - the Kielder, the Epping and the Delamere - offering choices of treatment and construction, you can configure a shed that suits you and your garden. All boast a timber floor, 15% more framing and are easier to build. Whichever you choose, you can be sure you've chosen The Better Shed.

Why choose a Forest Epping Shed?

If you're looking to purchase a new shed and can afford a slightly higher initial spend, buying a pressure treated shed will save you a lot of time and money in the long term.

Forest branded pressure treated sheds have a number of features to ensure maximum durability and strength including boarded wooden floors, security door hinges, extra framing and so much more.

The best overlap sheds we've ever made

FLEXIBILE WINDOWS

Same size panels are interchangeable - you can choose the window placement to suit your garden allowing flexibility for your garden design.

FLEXIBLE DOORS

Doors can be positioned to the left or right of the shed. Single doors can be hung to be left- or right-hand opening.

  • treatment

    Pressure treatment forces preservative deep inside the timber. The result is long-lasting protection against rot and fungal decay. There is no need to re-treat EVER, saving an estimated £200 in time and treatment costs compared to dip treated sheds.

  • floor

    Strong 14mm boarded timber floor. This wooden floor is built to withstand storage of heavier items as well as years of footfall. The floor is further strengthened by pressure treated bearers. A timber floor is far superior to the OSB that comes with standard sheds.

  • extra strength

    The design of our sheds features more extensive framing than standard sheds. This results in a more robust build. Larger apex models also feature a metal truss bracket that adds further strength to the roof and ensures best alignment.

  • cladding

    Straight edge overlap cladding provides consistency and strength as well as providing the traditional style we all know and love. The high-quality cladding means the panels are less likely to warp or develop gaps.

  • windows

    Our windows are glazed with shatterproof PET glazing, made from recycled materials, which will not yellow or become brittle over time. PET is more robust than the styrene used in standard sheds.

  • doors

    Our doors feature double Z bracing for extra strength, security and to prevent the doors dropping. This is superior to the basic ledge bracing on standard sheds. Our doors are also fitted with hidden security hinges and a padlock-ready hasp and staple.

Comes with a 15 year anti-rot guarantee.

Pressure Treatment. No need for annual retreatment.

Smaller sections make transportation and handling easy.

Quick and easy construction.

Pressure Treatment Process Explained

The Pressure Treatment process for timber has been applied to products for a number of years; the key benefit of this process is that the preservative is forced under vacuum pressure right deep into the heart of the wood and the grain structure. The preservative becomes an integral part of the wood; giving a long life and protection against rot.

This process also means that you never have to apply preservatives to your garden shed, and it allows the natural colours of the timber to show through and so your shed blends easily within your garden. Surprisingly, our Pressure Treated Sheds are only slightly more expensive than our Dip Treated Sheds.

step 1 Vacuum

Timber is loaded into chamber and a vacuum empties timber cells of air.

step 1 Flooded

Cylinder is flooded under vacuum with preservative.

step 1 Pressure

Preservative is forced deep into timber using hydraulic pressure.

step 1 Vacuum

Another vacuum extracts excess preservative.

step 1 Dry

Timber draws in surface excess of preservative under low pressure, then is left to dry.

NO NEED TO RE-TREAT - SAVING YOU TIME AND MONEY!
