More Info

Measure the space available in your garden with string and pegs. Consider how much garden equipment or furniture you need to store.

You will need an extra 1-2ft around the shed for maintenance. Check doors and windows will have space to open.

More Info

+

Overlap cladding is the most economical. The boards are attached to the frame so each board overlaps the one below encouraging rain to run off.




Shiplap tongue and groove cladding also interlocks but has a scalloped design which is considered more rain efficient and more traditional in appearance.

The dip treatment process involves coating the surface of the timber with a preservative that will provide 10 years anti-rot protection when supported by yearly retreatment. This option is best if your budget is tighter and you are willing to spend time and money treating the shed every year.

The pressure treatment process involves forcing the preservative deep inside the timber to provide 15 years of anti-rot protection without any yearly retreatment required. This option is best if you can afford a slightly higher cost now and want the peace of mind of not having to treat the shed annually.

More Info

+

Floor Included! This shed includes a strong 14mm pressure-treated boarded timber floor. A timber floor is far stronger and more durable than the OSB floors of standard sheds.



The floor is further strengthened by pressure treated bearers. A timber floor will better withstand storage of heavier items and years of footfall.

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. Side panels of the same size are interchangeable, allowing you to choose placement of windows to suit your garden.




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

More Info

+

Single doors take up less wall space allowing for more internal storage 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 allow for easier access and the manoeuvring in and out of large items.

All sheds must be installed on a level surface. If not, the shed will shift resulting in misalignment of doors and windows, weakening the structure.

Concrete slabs or poured concrete are often used as a shed base. As a quicker, more cost-effective base, we offer wooden and plastic shed base kits to purchase with your shed.

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

+

'Shed installation' applies to the shed only. If you have purchased our wooden base for which you also require installation, you should select the ‘Shed & Wood Base Install’ option which includes the shed and the base.

We will contact you after checkout to arrange your installation date.

Please note: We do not install plastic shed bases or other additional accessories.

More Info

+

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

Built in the UK and supplied with an excellent 10-year anti-rot guarantee, the 8x6 Forest Overlap Dip Treated Windowless Apex Wooden Shed represents great value for money. It also has an intelligent modular design which makes it easier to assemble and much stronger than other wooden sheds.

This is one of Forest Garden’s fantastic range of garden sheds, all of which combine market-leading shed knowhow, top-quality materials and exceptional value for money. This shed is constructed from small sections of 7mm overlap cladding on a solid 28mm frame, which is why it’s much easier to assemble and far stronger than other wooden sheds. What’s more, wherever the panels join together, cover strips keep the shed completely weathertight.

The 14mm pressure-treated solid timber floor includes pressure-treated bearers, so you can store heavier tools and machinery with complete confidence, and without any concern over ground moisture. The 8mm OSB apex roof includes a strong metal truss bracket to reinforce the structure.

This Forest Shed will only include a roof covering if you select one. You can choose from 3 weatherproof roof cover options:

  1. Green mineral felt: more attractive and with better weatherproof qualities than standard sand felt.
  2. Superior PolyFelt: double the tear-resistance of industry-standard sand felt and comes with a fantastic 15-year life expectancy - three times longer lasting than standard felt.
  3. The top-of-the-range SkyGuard EPDM Roof Membrane Kit: backed by a sensational 20-year guarantee and boasts a 50-year life expectancy, offering your shed roof unbeatable weatherproof protection. The kit includes a roof membrane, water-based adhesive, adhesive applicator and edge sealant.

You can gain easy access to this shed via a single door, reinforced with double-Z framing. It can be hung with a left or right-hand opening - the choice is entirely yours. Tamper-proof hidden hinges and a padlock-ready hasp and staple fastening (padlock not included) help keep valuable items safe. As a further security measure, this wooden shed is designed without windows.

Other notable features include high eaves, offering plenty of headroom and the opportunity to store taller items, as well as smooth-planed barge boards and a finial, both of which enhance the shed’s attractive traditional appearance.

Forest Garden’s wooden sheds are always built using FSC®-certified timber, so are exclusively sourced from sustainable, well-managed forests. This particular shed comes dip-treated and should be coated in a quality wood preservative, once a year, to maintain its smart appearance and validate the 10-year anti-rot guarantee. You can purchase a pressure-treated version too, which does not require re-treatment and comes with a fantastic 15-year anti-rot guarantee.

All the necessary fixtures and fittings are included, along with clear instructions for a simple assembly.

A professional installation service, a pressure-treated shed base and 2 shatterproof PET windows are all available as optional upgrades, as is a lean-to kit, offering you additional sheltered garden storage space. Please note that this lean-to kit is pressure-treated, making it a lighter shade of wood to the shed.

Free delivery is available 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.
