To £1,066.95 Regular Price £1,079.95
The 8x6 Forest Overlap Dip Treated Reverse Apex Wooden Shed is built in the UK and comes with a great 10-year anti-rot guarantee. Its smart modular design makes it far easier to assemble and stronger than other wooden sheds, and incredibly versatile too.
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 reverse 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:
- Green mineral felt: more attractive and with better weatherproof qualities than standard sand felt.
- 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.
- 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. Once inside, high eaves offer plenty of headroom and the opportunity to store taller items.
The 2 PET-glazed windows are made from recycled materials, completely shatterproof and will never discolour or weaken over time. They ensure plenty of natural light and can be fitted either side of the door or on the opposite side of the shed - again, the choice is yours.
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 and a pressure-treated shed base are both available as optional upgrades.
Free delivery is available to most UK addresses.

Shed Base Options
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 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.

Our drivers can leave your delivery in a safe place, please indicate this when selecting your delivery. It is important that the drivers have suitable access and no restrictions. We would not risk damaging your property whilst delivering a product to an un-safe location. Unfortunately, we will not be able to go through your property.
Other than our fence panels (which are delivered fully constructed), all of our products are delivered flat packed, direct to your home and are supplied with a set of instructions to support assembly.
Extended Lead Times: Due to the impact of the pandemic on manufacturing across the nation and on the importation of raw materials, alongside the highest demand for gardening products the industry has ever seen, some lead times for products are now longer than usual. Manufacturers are working hard to keep supplying customers. Thank you for your patience.
