Forest 6ft x 8ft Overlap Double Door Shed

Product Code: OPA68DDHD EAN: 5013053151419

(5) Based on 1 Review


6ft x 8ft is a very useful size for a shed, especially when there are double doors to make access, even with large items, exceptionally easy.

Lawn mowers, wheelbarrows and other hefty equipment can be safely stored in its confines. And this is also a shed that needn't just be for storage, there's plenty of light-filled space inside to cater for a workshop or hobby room.

The shed's attractive appearance will enhance your garden. Overlap timber is a mixture of softwoods that merge naturally with their surroundings. From a sustainable source, the timber has been pressure treated to resist rot and decay, it is guaranteed for 15 years even if you don't use preservative.

Everything inside the shed will be protected by excellent cladding and the sheet material roof with black sand felt. The floor is pressure treated board, hard wearing and very durable as is the whole of the building.

Polycarbonate glazing transmits an excellent amount of light, not yellowing or becoming brittle. Security screws are used to fit the two windows and the polycarbonate is unbreakable.

Security is very much to the fore when considering the doors that are 'Z' braced for strength. They have a hasp & staple latch and the hinges are hidden.

  • Square cut overlap mixed softwood timber board construction which allows flexibility and movement

Nice Shed, Good Size

This is a very well built shed that should make a good workshop. I liked the double doors and the fact that the wood is pressure treated, I'd rather be in there rebuilding my bike than spending time and money won wood preservative.

Stephen Hobbs Asked:

The pictures show the window panel fitted on the LH side when facing the door from the outside. Is it possible to fit it on the RH side as the LH side would be against a fence in my location?
