To assess how much space you have for a shed, mark out the area with string and pegs. Step inside and imagine your lawnmower, shelves and other equipment. Remember to leave 1-2ft around the shed to allow for maintenance such as cutting back any adjacent shrubs or for treating the shed.

More Info

Overlap – This cladding consists of a series of overlapping boards attached to the main frame of the panel. This is the most economic cladding as it is the simplest to manufacture.

Shiplap – This cladding the same interlocking construction as tongue & groove. While tongue and groove has a flat ‘face’ for a more streamlined appearance, shiplap has a scalloped shape which is more traditional and considered to be more rain efficient.

Tongue & Groove – This cladding features boards with a protruding tongue and a recessed groove. This enables the boards to be tightly interlocked rather than just overlapped. This results in a weather resistant construction combating rain and wind.

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

Dip treatment timber has a surface coating of preservative applied offering 10 years of anti-rot protection IF treated annually.


Pressure treatment timber has the preservative forced deep into the wood through high vacuum pressure. This provides 15 years of anti-rot protection with no annual retreatment necessary.

Budget and time available will determine which is the best shed for you right now. If you can stretch to a pressure treated shed, you’ll have great peace of mind. However, a dip-treated shed will serve you well if you treat it yearly as instructed.

Pressure Treatment is not currently available with Shiplap cladding.

Windowless sheds are the best option if security is the priority. If you plan to work in your shed or carry out DIY, windows will be necessary.



Windows are glazed with shatterproof recycled PET materials and can be placed in a choice of positions during shed assembly.




Same size shed side panels are interchangeable allowing you to choose the window placement to suit your garden design.

Please note: Windows come in sets of 2 and cannot be separated.

More Info

Single doors maximise storage space as they take up less wall space.

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


Double doors are best for storing and manoeuvring of larger items. Double doors are available when windows are selected in combination with pressure treatment OR shiplap cladding.

The shed must be installed on a solid, level surface. If not, the shed will shift resulting in misalignment of components and weakening of the shed’s structure.

These wooden shed base kits and plastic bases are available to purchase with your shed as an alternative to slabs or concrete. 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' option only includes the shed.

If you require installation of a wooden shed base you are also purchasing, you should select the ‘Shed & Wood Base Install’ option which includes both 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.

Lean To Shed Kits are ideal when you need extra space for storing bulky items like wheelbarrows that benefit from being undercover but don't need to be inside the shed - they make a perfect log store too.

Designed to be used with the corresponding size of Overlap Pressure Treated Apex Shed, they can be fitted either side.

Please note: While these Lean To Kits will fit Overlap Dip Treated Sheds of the corresponding size, the timber colour will be different due to the treatment applied.

Description

The 8’x6’ Forest Overlap Dip Treated Windowless Apex Wooden Shed is UK-built and features a clever modular design, which makes for easier assembly and a stronger garden storage shed.

This garden shed is part of a comprehensive range of sheds, expertly designed and built by one of the UK’s leading shed manufacturers. Its 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 shed 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 completely weathertight.

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 features a sturdy metal truss bracket for extra strength.

This Forest Shed is supplied without a roof covering, unless one is selected. The selection includes 3 weather-resistant roof covering options:

  1. A green mineral felt which offers a better finish than standard black sand felt.
  2. A premium PolyFelt with twice the tear resistance of industry-standard shed felt and a 15-year life expectancy.Standard felt is only expected to last 5 years.
  3. The leading-edge SkyGuard EPDM Roof Membrane Kit, with its extraordinary 20-year guarantee and 50-year life expectancy, provides unbeatable weatherproof protection. The kit comes with a membrane, adhesive, applicator and sealant.

Access to the shed is gained via a single door, which can be hung with a left or right-hand opening, to suit the garden’s orientation, and includes double-Z framing to prevent the door from dropping. Tamper-proof hidden hinges and a hasp and staple plate, designed for a padlock (padlock not included), help keep stored items safe, while the windowless design acts as an additional security measure. Once inside, high eaves offer plenty of headroom and make it easy to store taller items.

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 set of 2 unbreakable PET windows can be purchased as optional extras too, as can a lean-to kit for extra sheltered storage space. Please be advised that this lean-to kit is pressure-treated for a longer life and so is a different shade of timber to the shed.

This wooden shed is supplied dip-treated and should be coated in a quality wood preservative, annually, in order to maintain its handsome appearance and validate the excellent 10-year anti-rot guarantee. A pressure-treated model is also available, which does not require treatment and is backed by a fantastic 15-year anti-rot guarantee. This can be purchased with or without windows and a lean-to kit.

Delivery is free to most UK addresses.
